Step into New York Times bestseller Nalini Singh’s explosive and shockingly passionate Psy-Changeling world…
A dangerous, volatile rebel, hands stained bloodred.
A woman whose very existence has been erased.
A love story so dark, it may shatter the world itself.
A deadly price that must be paid.
The day of reckoning is here.
Kaleb’s priorities and goals were murky in the beginnng of the series, but as time when on we saw there was more to him than we previously thought.
It was the greatest of ironies that the only person who had ever held him as if he mattered was the one person who did not need to hold him at all. If Sahara called, he would come. Always.
Sahara was the most important thing in the world to him, and he never faltered when it came to her.
[..]He rose to his feet and, placing his hands on the table, leaned toward her until she could’ve reached out and run her fingers along his freshly shaven jaw. “You are here,” he said in a tone that made her heart thump wildly against her ribs, “because you belong to me.”
They were both broken, and had issues.
[..]He sat on the edge with his back to her and his arms braced on his knees . . . and he remembered the seven years he had waited for her to come back, the countless days he’d stood on this terrace staring down at the gorge as the rational part of his mind tried to convince the obsessive madness that lived in him of her likely death.
The gorge, deep and without end, hadn’t existed until the first time he’d imagined her erased from existence.
I love how strong Kaleb’s determination to find Sahara was. How he continued to build a life for her, even though she’d been gone for so long.
“Who are you?”
“A caretaker,” he said, and it was a truth, if not everything.
Frown lines on her brow, her fingers flexing and clenching against his chest in a way that challenged his already unsteady control.
“Of this house?”
“Yes.” It was an anchor, a physical symbol of his search, of her.
“Who owns it?”
“You do.” He’d had it built according to specifications she’d outlined at fifteen, watched over it all the years of her captivity, using
On the surface, Kaleb seems to live in perfect Silence, but things are more complex than that.
“That,” Tatiana said, putting down the stylus, “is why we’d make an unbeatable team. Neither one of us has any flaws in our Silence.”
Kaleb thought of the woman who slept in the house he’d built for her, of the man with a broken neck who had burned to ash in a crematorium incinerator hours ago, and knew his Silence was far more complex than Tatiana could imagine.

I love this series and Sahara & Kaleb are one of my favorite couples, so many great passages in this book. The last chapter still gives me chills when I read it, particularly the last line.
This is basically my favorite series ever and HoO is my favorite.
I remember liking this one, too!
