Review: Pride's Run by Cate Kalen

Pride's Run by Cat Kalen

Amazon Product Description:
Seventeen year old Pride is a tracker—a werewolf with a hunger for blood. Taught to trick and to lure, she is the perfect killing machine. Kept leashed in the cellar by a master who is as ruthless as he is powerful, Pride dreams of freedom, of living a normal life, but escape from the compound is near impossible and disobedience comes with a price. When she learns her master intends to breed her she knows she has to run. Pride soon learns if she is to survive in the wild, she must trust in the boy who promises her freedom, the same boy she was sent to hunt. With life and death hanging in the balance the two find themselves on the run from the Paranormal Task Force—officers who shoot first and ask questions later—as well as her master’s handlers. Can Pride flee the man who has held her captive since birth and find sanctuary in the arms of a boy who has captured her heart? Or will her master find her first?

My thoughts:
I truly enjoyed this book.  The characters are well developed and easy to invest in.  The story is wonderfully written and nicely edited.  Cate Kalen has a way with words and the ability to put the reader on the edge of their seat.  I never would have guessed that this was a debut novel, this is quality writing!
Pride and Logan are both fantastic characters, you can't help but fall in love with them.  Stone, now he's another story; as a reader, I both loved and hated him depending upon where I was at in the book.  Cate Kalen has filled this story with emotional turmoil and you ride that roller coaster of heartache, sacrifice, desire, longing, fear, and hope on every page.  A fantastic addition to YA paranormal.  Don't miss out on this one.  I am barely able to wait for the second installment of Pride's story!
