Discover the exhilarating risks of passion in the breathtaking new Psy-Changeling novel by Nalini Singh, the New York Times bestselling “alpha author of paranormal romance” (Booklist)…
Adria, wolf changeling and resilient soldier, has made a break with the past—one as unpredictable in love as it was in war. Now comes a new territory, and a devastating new complication: Riaz, a SnowDancer lieutenant already sworn to a desperate woman who belongs to another.
For Riaz, the primal attraction he feels for Adria is a staggering betrayal. For Adria, his dangerous lone-wolf appeal is beyond sexual. It consumes her. It terrifies her. It threatens to undermine everything she has built of her new life. But fighting their wild compulsion toward one another proves a losing battle.
Their coming together is an inferno…and a melding of two wounded souls who promise each other no commitment, no ties, no bonds. Only pleasure. Too late, they realize that they have more to lose than they ever imagined. Drawn into a cataclysmic Psy war that may alter the fate of the world itself, they must make a decision that might just break them both.
Even after Riaz is a complete shit to Adria they get together and decide that they can ease the sexual need that they have for each other but it will never go any further. Neither of them is telling the other what their deeper issues are so they agree and the sex is like lightning and thunder all rolled into one. As the days go on, however, each one knows that it’s not just sex between them and how they deal with that may make them or break them.
As the Psy-Changeling story arc continues there is an abundance of side stories going on along with the romance. Hawke and Sienna get quite a bit of page time and that’s wonderful We hear from Kaleb Krychek and try to figure out what he’s up to. We get a storyline that falls in with the others involving Judd, the Ghost, Vasic and Aden. We hear more about Alice who was found in a cryogenic state in the last book. We get a bit of Lucas and Sascha, Tamsyn & Nate, Vaughn, Dorian, Riley, Mercy…we hear about a couple of pregnancies and it all blends in to an amazing story. I’m always amazed at how Singh can take me in so many directions but they’re all related and woven together so well I’m never bored or trying to get back to one specific part.
Riaz and Adria’s romance/relationship went through is ups and downs but I loved every part of it. One part in particular was when they went to Venice for a meeting and they spend the evening together just enjoying each others company, listening to music, dancing and loving. That scene was just so perfect I went back and read it again even after I finished the book.
I really liked the overall feeling of the story in general. There’s some serious shit going on in the Psy-Changeling world, as well as the human one as well, but I love how they all work together to make sure their families and packs are taken care of. I could feel the love and concern that all of the characters had for each other and I loved that. I’ll be reading this one again soon and in fact this has made me want to go back and start the series all over again. This is a great book and one I definitely recommend.
