New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh returns to her extraordinary Psy-Changeling world with a story of wild passion and darkest betrayal...
Control. Precision. Family. These are the principles that drive Silver Mercant. At a time when the fledgling Trinity Accord seeks to unite a divided world, with Silver playing a crucial role as director of a worldwide emergency response network, wildness and chaos are the last things she needs in her life. But that's exactly what Valentin Nikolaev, alpha of the StoneWater bears, brings with him.
Valentin has never met a more fascinating woman. Though Silver is ruled by Silence--her mind clear of all emotion--Valentin senses a whisper of fire around her. That's what keeps him climbing apartment buildings to be near her. But when a shadow assassin almost succeeds in poisoning Silver, the stakes become deadly serious...and Silver finds herself in the heart of a powerful bear clan.
Her would-be assassin has no idea what their poison has unleashed...
Silver has been Silent since she was very young. She had to be as it was the only way to save her life. She is now the director of EmNet and doing a wonderful job at it. Unfortunately she keeps getting visits from Valentin Nickolaev, the Alpha of the StoneWater Bears. She should be sending him away on a regular basis but for some reason she’s not. On one of these visits Valentin saves her life as she had just been unknowingly poisoned. The only people that could have poisoned her food was family so her grandmother and Valentin work out that Silver should stay in StoneWater territory until they find out who tried to kill her. Silver hates the plan but figures she’ll recover and then move out asap – probably within a few days.
Once at StoneWater Silver finds a different kind of life than one she’s used to seeing. Valentin makes no secret of the way he feels about her and when he finally talks her into breaking her Silence she loves every minute of their time together. Unfortunately as I said earlier she was Silent to save her life. She has a Psy designation that will soon kill her if not fixed. She’s loved not being Silent but isn’t ready to die. A surgery by Ashaya Aleine and her sister, Amara, may save her life but then she’ll probably be 100% Silent. Valentin is willing to deal with any outcome as long as Silver is alive.
I have to say that reading about Silver in previous books didn’t make me want to read her story. Kind of like with Kaleb’s book I was, of course, pleasantly surprised. Silver was a wonderful heroine and I loved her dry sense of humor and the fierceness of her love for Valentin.
Valentin was one persistent bear and I loved that about him. He knew that Silver was his mate but wasn’t about to let things set just because she was Psy. He approached slowly but when he had his opportunity he took it and ran with it. He was a good, good man and had so much love for Silver, his family and the entire bear clan. It truly warmed my heart to read about this amazing hero.
We also got to learn more about other characters, the Consortium and events that happened with Bowen Knight. I have no idea what’s going to be happening next in the series but I can’t wait!
Great book, definitely recommend it – like, read it NOW. 🙂
