The list of Faythe Sanders lovers just got a lot bigger. Andrew is Sanders’ ex- boyfriend who was once human, but later became a stray werecat. Unlike pure werecats that are conceived that way “strays” become werecats as a result of being bitten or scratched by a pure werecat.

Novels in the Shifters book series
This is a novel about a female character who wishes to escape the “madness” of her world and live a normal peaceful life only to find that the whole world is conspiring to ensure that does not happen. In the novel Stray, Faythe who is a werecat desperately tries to escape her world of supernormal beings by trying to live like any other normal girl would. The abandoned responsibilities of childbearing and marriage which are considered to be a norm in her pride do not excite her in any way. She is a believer in the fact that women in particular regardless of their background should aim higher.
While she is in her graduate school, Marc Ramos, who comes bearing bad news pays Faythe a visit. He informs her that two female werecats also known as tabbies have been kidnapped which is a huge blow to the Pride. As careful as she tries to be, she makes one small mistake that makes her a kidnapping victim too. She later comes to realize that her fate together with the other kidnapped tabbies lies in her hands and she actively fights to take down the rogues who are involved in the female werecats trafficking ring.
Faythe Sanders’ father is ousted from the council that is mandated with the task of controlling their secret werecat world. Although she had always been groomed to take over the alpha position from her father, the orchestrated tragedy manages to ruin her future as the Alpha of the Pride transforming her into a rebel on the run. Her desire for a better life is further dimmed when she alongside Marc and Jace are put on a trial for murder, kidnapping and treason charges.
Both her heart and leadership skills are consistently put to the taste in the Alpha novel, forcing her to either adapt and become something new or give up and die. Giving up for her is not and has never been an option; hence she chooses to fight instead of letting go which would have been a lot easier.
Some of Faythe’s old allies from her supernatural world team up with her and are willing to prove their loyalty through standing with her throughout the events. The drama deepens when both Marc and Jace, who are still madly in love with her actively, compete to see who will successfully win over her heart. She uses her leadership and survival skills to rally her pride in what she considers to be the last battle against her enemies.Book Series In Order » Characters » Shifters
