think she has nowhere else to go plot wise, she finds another whole pathway rife with new plot fodder, characters, and relationships It really is incredible However, I think my favorite part of this world as a whole besides Hawke, of course wink is the underlying message of unity, the quest for peace, and the multicultural, multi racial, multi specie nature of the world and its characters Cannot

wanted even if it seemed to make no sense She was one of those characters whose personality spoke to me immediately And she meshed beautifully with her growly wolf.Alexei was a typical wolf, approachable, protective, and always knew how to handle Memory He was tuned into her to a fantastic degree and made them incredibly compatible as a couple.I really enjoyed Memory and Alexei together Smart and funny dialogues had me laughing out loud And their chemistry was palpable Even though Memory was inexperienced she had no trouble distinguishing her feelings and because of that she was steps ahead of Alexei Him catching up was endearing and a source of continuous amusement.As always the author had many new dangers lurking around corners Forces that threatened the overall survival of Psy and PsyNet The overall story arc is still moving along, it might have taken a little breather in Wolf Rain, but there is definitley movement And of course I m wondering what s coming next At this point I wouldn t mind for favorite couples to get another book Krycheck for example is just too interesting for him not have a second book Because his power is truly one of a kind.Throughout Wolf Rain the author revisits old and popular characters, and gives the reader small glimpses into their present lives These glimpses are somewhat satisfying but might make this book not the ideal book to start this series with There are just too many characters that are being mentioned So start with book one and enjoy the ride ARC generously provided in exchange for an honest review.Here are Fantasy Sci Fi

temper and solve it It s exciting but also scary because Nalini introduced some unknowns into the mix which made me want to read the next book ASAP But I m getting ahead of myself Wolf Rain is first and foremost, Alexei and Memory s story.Alexei is one of the SnowDancer lieutenants with a tragic history while Memory is a new character with some very interesting capabilities Changeling Psy pairings have always been my favorite and this pair is no exception I loved how their relationship developed Both Alexei and Memory are broken in their own way, Memory especially She needed so TLC and Alexei was the perfect person who gave it to her I m seriously considering my Nalini Singh hero ranking now that I ve met Alexei He s definitely among my favorites now.If you re a long time fan of the series, you won t want to miss Wolf Rain It not only gives us the familiar characters we knew and loved, it introduces us to new and exciting ones, too I know I sound like a broken record but I cannot

was still really excited that Wolf Rain would take us back to where it all began with the SnowDancer pack I can t help it, I ve loved this series for such a long time that spending time with the wolves and the cats of DarkRiver just feels like coming home and it was so wonderful to catch up with all the familiar faces.We ve met Alexi before, he s one of Hawke s lieutenants and is a powerful member of the pack Strong but caring and very protective of the ones he loves, he holds himself at a distance from the others due to some dangerous family history He has good reason to fear the future but meeting Memory gives him a reason to fight for what he wants Memory is a brand new character, she s a Psy who has been held captive for decades and although that would have sent many people completely insane she s a survivor who made it through She isn t like a lot of the Psy we ve met before, she never managed to achieve Silence so she s much warmer than I expected I m not going to say much about her abilities but she s always believed they are a curse and that she s evil but working alongside the empaths and the Arrows she starts to realise that she is capable of than she ever imagined.These two have a lot going against them, the least of which is that her captor is hunting her determined to get her back under his control, but they both know what they want and they re willing to fight for it One of the things I love most about Nalini Singh s stories is that she never manufactures unnecessary dramas, instead she focuses on creating well rounded characters with believable motivations It is always so easy to love her characters and even the side characters who have never been in the spotlight feel like old friends.It goes without saying that her world building is phenomenal too, the Psy Changeling world is so full of depth that it s hard to believe it isn t a real place I love the way the balance has been changing between the changelings, humans and psy since the fall of silence and that the different groups are starting to realise how much they all need each other Things was always much easier amongst the changelings and humans but the psy are now learning so much about themselves and the others.As well as being a fabulous romance Wolf Rain really moves the overarching plot forward too and I can t wait to see where the story takes us next Nalini Singh s books just never disappoint _______________________I HAVE AN ARC Thank you to Penguin s First to Read program I am so bloody excited flag 27 likesLike see review Apr 02, 2019

beginning with Slave to Sensation Even if you don t love every book as you go along and there are eighteen now , the world building alone is worth continuing this series One of my favorites things about this series is the inclusiveness, and it s something I ve only briefly touched on before.The characters are wildly diverse and unique, to the point where it feels celebrated The characters come from so many different cultures and have varied customs, making the world feel every bit as interesting as it is The subtle and strong underlying theme of differences being not only accepted but being necessary for survival in the world is refreshing If I could ask for one thing, it would be LGBT inclusion I recall a couple of side characters shown as gay earlier in the series Silver Silence added a couple that we actually got some page time with I d just love to see.That wish asidewhen I re read every year, the romances get me right in the heart This ever expanding cast of characters and how well they love each other continues to capture my heart and mind.I have my favorites in the series, I think everyone does, and when they show up again for screen time in the newest book it always makes me grin Wolf Rain gave me plenty of reason for smiles Being back in California, with SnowDancer ensures that we re going to meet with plenty of previous heroes and heroines I loved seeing Lucas, Sasha, Hawke, Mercy, Kaleb, and so many others It was a nice moment when we got to see their lives happily continuing on, even when some of them aren t mentioned by name.As usual, at least for me, the main couple took center stage I immediately fell in love with Memory She s a fascinating and strong heroine that I couldn t get enough of I loved that even though we were in her heart and head a good portion of the time, we began to understand her at the same rate Alexei did She doubted her own self enough, in the beginning, that she was a bit of an unreliable narrator I think it s easy to know because this is Nalini Singh, after all that she was a good person There is good reason for her to think that her Psy talent is a curse, and that just made this so much interesting.Alexei, we ve met before, but I loved seeing deeper into his soul and heart He s got this huge heart that only wants to protect everyone, even from himself I loved his playful side, and his courting Seeing the wolves court their mates is one of my favorite things.It was easy to see why they fell in love with each other Their interactions with each other are incredibly sigh worthy.I really appreciated that despite the fact that they both had legitimate concerns about how they may harm someone they love, they worked through it together It didn t stop them from talking about it Nor did it keep them apart There was no manufactured drama here Even when fighting their own feelings, they both understood what they had with each other and fought for that.This book combined all of my favorite elements the original changelings, Psy and Changeling falling in love, favorite characters come back for screen time, and some very real pressing and imperative obstacles and concerns.As always, I can t wait for the next Nalini Singh book I think I ll go re read all 18 books and the many short stories and bonus stories in this series in the meantime.More on The AlliteratesInitial thoughts Love heading back to

and Alexei finds himself magnetically drawn to this amazing woman Alexei is determined, along with his Pack, to find and punish this man, before he hurts anyone else While Memory recovers and learns to strengthen her shields there s an irresistible attraction brewing between her and Alexei It s intense, sexy, and fun I love that Nalini Singh tempers some of the horrific parts of the story with humor Alexei was a complete sweetheart He may be a growly, protective wolf, but he was charming and not above using naughty, playful nips as a distraction There s a lot of fun sparring between these two While each have their sad histories, both were determined to keep the other out any dark funk that threatened to swallow them up As I said, there s another story, part of the continuing arc in the Trinity spinoff First, the Psy Net has been slowly collapsing because of Silence the way of life which has now, thankfully, fallen Silence the term the Psy used for living a life without emotions, and by doing that they excluded parts they didn t know kept the Net healthy The Net doesn t have long unless they find some solutions While the fall of Silence is a good thing, there have been some repercussions One of the repercussions plays a prominent part in this installment, and Memory ends up being a big factor as all these stories tie in together I was amazed to find out Memory s abilities Nalini Singh s creative mind never fails to impress me, with the addition of Memory in the whole equation and this wonderful fantasy world I m fairly new to the Psy Changeling series In fact, before picking up the first Psy Changeling Trinity book, which is said to be considered season two of the Psy Changeling series, I had only read the first book in the Psy Changeling series I mention this so you don t let the number of books in the previous series keep you from picking up Wolf Rain In fact, I think you could read Wolf Rain without reading any of the other books and still enjoy it, but I do think you d get if you read at least a few of the previous books Wolf Rain was an addictive, sexy adventure, and I m glad I set aside time to read chunks at a time It s really not

forward to going back to the DarkRiver SnowDancer world, except it felt as if we visited it in passing When this happened with Sahara in Heart of Obsidian, I was happy with the small glimpses we had from the packs, but here, it felt like some characters were over utilized, while other characters were completely ignored For example, I was very curious to see how Zaira and Memory would interact, yet Zaira seemed to be forgotten I thought Sascha was used way too much, when Ivy Jane should have taken just as big of a role Jaya s inclusion was nice, and I liked Yuri too I felt like Pax Marshall was wasted as a villain, even if he was being possessed by the DarkMind I assume Two things I always loved about Nalini s novels were the fact that the romance and the mystery thriller aspect were well intertwined However, everything felt choppy in this novel It was entertaining than Ocean Light oh dear lord, that s probably the worst Psy Changeling book, with Tangle of Need coming in a close second What I hated Memory shrugging off her time in captivity, coming out saner than I am afterwards, and honestly, it feels like a slap in the face to the people in this world who HAVE suffered through similar situations Sorry, you guys are not empaths, and probably have no psychic way of remaining sane In comparison, Sahara purposefully scrambled her mind to protect herself, and her coming back from it was realistic Her falling for Kaleb was realistic because she had fallen for him a LONG LONG time ago, and it was a completion of a love story that had begun nearly a decade before the book Also, WHY DID SAHARA NEVER TALK TO MEMORY Not only have both of them been through something similar, both of them have a dark power that can be abused by psychopaths I thought when Memory asked the NightStar clan for the brain scans, and when word got out about Memory and her situation, that Sahara would be the one to help Memory the most, not just Sascha Also, Alice, Sasha, Ivy and Sahara, they were the ones that should have interacted with Memory , but we only got Sascha The snippets at the beginning of each chapter I just hated the excerpts from Wild Woman It made me cringe to read them, because they were so over the top sexual in their nature, and the fact that this book s heroine was a woman who had been abused for 15 years, had her mind RAPED by a monster for said 15 years, but, no biggie, now she s just focused on having sex with Alexei because she chose him.In Ashaya and Dorian s book, Dorian gets to save Ashaya because she s up in the trees and facing some wild cats But it was Ashaya herself who got herself out, via her connection with Zie Zen and the Arrows In the meantime, Memory has been captive for years, and is rescued by Alexei, so of course, she falls for him There were so many missed opportunities to raise the stakes for both Memory and Alexei, and for the rest of the world as well And yeah, I understand that the PsyNet has an ongoing problem, and that the NetMind and the DarkMind are going bonkers, but why is NO ONE TALKING TO SOPHIA Not only is her part of the Net stable because she s mated to a human, but the NetMind and the DarkMind are actually united inside her mind In addition, I understand that the cats wanted to keep Noor and Keenan and their Harmonizing ability secret, but surely surely they re friends enough with the Arrows by now to offer their help When Yuri was dying, I kept saying, come on, use the kids, or at least have them try Another thing that did not help this book was the fact that I knew that none of the characters were in danger I knew that Abbot wasn t going to die, and I was sure that Yuri wouldn t either, especially when Pax revealed the existence of his twin and his unwillingness to perform the DarkMind s duties In Caressed by Ice, I was so afraid that Drew was gonna die, that I couldn t put the book down until he was fine And, what the hell happened to the Architect and his conspiracies I was torn between Pax and Shoshanna as the one that was pulling the strings, and leaning towards Ming when the Architect came to pick up the rogue Arrow in Zaira s book disguised, to hide a highly recognizable face So, either Ming or Shoshanna then, because Shoshanna and her hubby were the public face of the Psy Council, and Ming has that birthmark thingy What I liked Anthony and Nikita Give me their book already I want Anthony to be Sascha s father so bad, I can taste it Amara She was, ironically, the heart and the soul of this book I always felt that Amara had a chance of becoming something else than she was I mean, sure, she s a psychopath, or a sociopath, without having murderous tendencies, and I always felt that she could make some progress, or a change Memory s pain for Jitterbug was something I could relate to, having lost a cat I used to talk to What I disliked The other empaths reaction to Memory s scent emotional taste after working with Amara I mean, yeah, alright, they apologized, and it was fine, but I wasn t fine with how the SnowDancers reacted MUCH BETTER THAN THE EMPATHS It sort of felt like, yeah, don t you worry, Memory, your own kind don t accept you, but we will It was different when it was Sascha and emotion, Faith and emotion, Sienna and her fiery power, but I thought the world was changing, and I wish that this side effect of Memory s power was handled differently We saw a lot of the action second hand Like the above mentioned reaction to Memory, we only learn this from Jaya through dialogue Why not have a dramatic moment when it happens Even later, through Memory s own PoV, we only get a this happened and I felt so bad kind of flashback There were too many characters that were just coming and going that it felt like someone was pulling on my emotional strings, making me want from Mercy, or Vaughn who isn t even named , or all the other characters I liked Brenna s I ll hack the PsyNet if I can jack into it I wish we actually see it one day Since when are Judd and Alexei best buds It did not feel real I thought Judd was best buds with Drew I felt like Memory s situation and what happened with Hawke s parents and Alexei s parents would be somehow intertwined, especially since we get a quote from Hawke s mom It felt like there was an opportunity for a bigger conspiracy Memory s capture, Sahara s imprisonment, what happened with Hawke s parents One thing that I loved about Aden and Zaira s book was the fact that all the people missing from BlackSea were taken seemingly at random, yet they were done by the same organization There was a quote about the Ruling Coalition not being successful, but it felt like it led nowhere And the last bit of the book, about many many dark Psy awakening after Memory healed Pax felt like buy the next book, this glacial plot WILL MOVE FORWARD, WE PROMISE Also, if the effect from Silver and Memory on the PsyNet is the same, then why the hell did Memory have to go all Cinderella on the PsyNet to achieve this effect Would Memory be actually able to heal the Net so widely that she would save it Because it felt like Memory merely bought them time, just like Ivy with the Honeycomb This installment felt like a TV adaptation of a favorite novel, everything is just there somehow, the characters are recognizable just by their hair color and names, and except for Brenna s comment, Judd s I ll take that secret to my grave deadpan humor, Ben s inability to grow past 5, and Tamar s snarkiness, everyone else was sort of just there Give me Axl and Tamar s book next, please and thank you Even Sahara and Kaleb were just there Memory was as unmemorable as Silver and Kaia, and Alexei is still memorable for all the dominance fights than what he did in this book.Another thing I used to love about this series was the way Nalini set up so many characters and their situations Like Samuel Rain, who we first see fighting off a compulsion to kill all humans, or Sahara, mentioned by Faith in the second book, but appears so much later Sienna s struggled with her powers for years until her book came along, and while Alexei was a known character, either my memory oh lord fails me, or Brodie and Etta were never mentioned nor seen before, even though we ve spent than 10 books in the DarkRiver SnowDancer clans Judd interacted with Aden and Vasic, Alice was mentioned multiple times, and her rescue was both gut wrenching and heart lifting Memory began as the most sympathetic character, just as much Sahara, but her shrugging off everything with zero emotional trauma was disturbing Alexei and Brodie were fun to read about, but it would have been gut wrenching if Brodie had actually existed before this and since he had only died a year previously, there could have been a scene with him previously, if he was to become so important I remembered Lucy from before, but did not actually feel anything for her Unlike Lara, whom I remember vividly in Drew s book, with her yellow dress and angry demeanor On one hand, Nalini explained many unnecessary things about the world, the empaths, and everything else, on the expense of the characters actually sounding the same.And why the hell did Lara get an off screen birth Why was everything in the packs happening off screen It felt as if nothing was connected, and everything was happening just because,

review.Wolf Rain is book three in the Trinity series that is connected to the Psy Changeling series So if you have read and loved the Psy Changeling books than I can t recommend the Trinity books enough I was very curious about this one though and was wondering how Singh would handle the set up of this book but give me a grumpy hero and feisty heroine any day of the week and I will fall in love and Wolf Rain definitely had me feeling some feels for sure Nalini Singh is fantastic in her writing and every book I read from her I can t recommend enough Even though book one still remains as my personal favorite of this new series, Wolf Rain was definitely a much enjoyable read for me than book two And another plus for a diverse character, love seeing these mixed relationships and the dynamics were so well penned.Wolf Rain begins with our hero, Snowdancer Lieutenant Alexei, who is going on his security rounds for the pack Alexei has never been the same since his brother s death almost a year ago and he has never been the same There is a place inside him cold and empty and he gets enough to survive with help from the pack But as a changeling, he is slowly dying himself if something doesn t change But Alexei knows what is in his future the same fate that his father and his brother suffered from.going rogue He doesn t want to risk ever falling in love or finding his true mate because he fears what he will do to them when he himself turns rogue What Alexei never planned on is to sense the call of a Psy in grief and pain and he finds himself drawn to the E, in a way he never imagined What he finds is a woman trapped in a cell, mourning the death of her pet cat Memory has been held prisoners by a superior Psy since she was seven years old and her mother was murdered and she was left all alone and unable to fight the man that became obsessed with her and used her at free will She never imagined a beautiful world when she finds freedomere is part of her that fears a world she doesn t know but there is another part of her that aches for this unique freedom and the connection that she feels to a certain grumpy wolf changeling Memory is learning to discover her self and the powers that she is capable of and the true depths of emotion that she feels with a certain changeling who stands by her side.her protector, lover andteWolf Rain was such pure delight in every way you can imagine Nalini Singh keeps building up this world with such clarity and with each book we get a deeper detail and I love how this author builds the plot in Wolf Rain I was really surprised by the element of rogue changelings we haven t really seen this plot device much and I really enjoyed seeing how it added a certain element of tension in this story We see the way that Alexei has separated himself from his pack for the most part He still has to have some touch though, and only goes to those he trusts when he really needs it But he hasn t talked to Hawke except when its absolutely necessary We see a certain element, the strong relationships with Hawke and his lieutenants and the pain that comes from separation We see this so well drawn into the plot without overwhelming the romance or story line I am glad that Singh handled this with just the right touch It really adds depth to the character of our hero and why he acts the way he does and what he is trying to overcome and the fears that are holding him at bay.The romance between Alexei and Memory is not an easy one but in their own way, they need each other They both have pain that they have to learn to adapt to and turn that pain into ability and power Alexei is suffering for fear of the future, the connection he feels for Memory and the loss of his brother and friend Memory is trying to find her own strength after being held captive for so many years and finding herself The romance is slow building, which is what this pairing really needs They learn about their own capabilities and strengths before the relationship between them escalates before they are ready on an emotional and mental level.Then we have our villain and boy this one is hard to catch and get rid of but boy he really was one of my favorite villains this author has EVER created There was something so mentally unstable about this character, what he is willing to do but this is where our heroine really comes into her true powers and find herself Because she ends up learning her own strengths when she has to face up to her past and the horrors that he put her through.Overall I found Wolf Rain to be a spectacular read and full of spice and vinegar It s a story that will keep you on the edge from beginning to end A story that is bound to give you bursts of laughter, feels of the heart and a love tale that is fiery and packed with intensity GET READY FOR A WILD RIDE flag 13 likesLike see review Jun 05, 2019 Namera The Literary Invertebrate rated it really liked it Shelves futuristic, adult,

read about many, many times before and in a better format.With that said, though, her writing was superb as ever and I was definitely invested hence the 4 stars.Alexei Harte might be one of the most trusted lieutenants of the SnowDancer changeling wolf pack, but he also comes from a long line of rogues His grandfather, father and elder brother all succumbed to these genetic murderous urges Determined never to hurt someone he loves in that way, Alexei has been distancing himself from his pack and vowed to never take a mate.But on a routine patrol high up in the mountains, he senses immense emotional distress The source is twenty three year old Memory Aven Rose, an E Psy with empathic abilities She s been kept trapped in an underground bunker for years by a psychopathic Psy named Renault A serial killer, he uses Memory s abilities to give himself an emotional high so he can derive pleasure from his murders When he realises that his pet has escaped, he s determined to hunt her down and kill her Memory is under Alexei s protection now, but he won t get too close in case he falls into the mating dance with her and kills her when he inevitably goes rogue.Meanwhile, there s an overarching issue with the Honeycomb, the biofeedback link that s replaced the PsyNet The Honeycomb is held together by the presence of empaths, but since there aren t many of them it s struggling to maintain the lives of so many people It doesn t help that there are individuals one in particular who are determined to wipe out the empaths for daring to help break Silence I had an issue with the premise at the very beginning So, Alexei finds Memory in the bunker because she s broadcasting great emotional pain after the death of her pet cat Nobody knew the bunker was there This is in a remote part of the SnowDancer land But I still don t understand how Memory hadn t been found before then It s shown that she broadcasts her emotions very loudly and powerfully, because she has no control over them was the death of her cat seriously the first time she felt something strongly enough that it reached someone else I find that hard to believe But it was mostly smooth sailing from then on If you ve read Singh before which I m sure you have, if you re reading this review you know that she tends to have a very overwritten prose style Like, it borders on purple and flowery It annoyed me here than it usually does, but it was easy enough to ignore The suspense plot was very interesting though I guessed the identity of the unknown narrator immediately, it s a character I like, so I don t mind and I liked immersing myself in this amazingly multicultural, multi layered world Singh has created here The biggest problem is how cliched her villains are He s a Psy serial killer who preys on young women There have been about two million Psy serial killers who target young women in this series so far You d be forgiven for thinking that this book takes place in the 1980s instead of the 2080s, at the height of the serial killer epidemic Renault, this particular specimen, was an especially bad example he wasn t even frightening, or interestingly three dimensional like some other villains we ve seen in the series He was just a stereotyped cardboard cut out of a serial killer, there to add some extra drama.To a lesser extent, Memory also felt like a heroine I d read about before Mostly she felt like a pale shadow of Sahara Kyriakus the Psy girl who s been kept in mental and physical captivity, exposed only to psychopaths, then suddenly freed You see Singh has done this type of heroine before, and what s , she s done it better I have no complaints on the romance front Memory is so understanding that their relationship felt vaguely lacking in tension compared to the other books, but it was still sweet I d have liked of a focus on Alexei s life and personality before his brother s death, though Overall A good ensemble book we got to revisit many old, favourite characters but it did dilute the main romance, which really did not need dilution Interesting steps taken to advance the overarching plot of the aftereffects of Silence Blog Bookstagram flag 11

Basically, the only time we see her helpless is at the beginning when Lexie breaks her out, and for the rest of the novel she is giving her best never to be in helpless position again I loved how her story ended It s a straight forward romance, without some major hiccups, beside Alexei being brooding idiot, but I enjoyed the simplicity since a lot of other things were happening Also, I appreciate we got detailed explanation of skin privileges in question because the concept interests me For scientific reasons I wondered what happened with Psy who didn t abandoned Silence as a style of life with Coalition declaration despite the fact it s proven it s bad for them and I got my answer Silence protocol was definitely a solution created to fix some problems and in turn it created other I like seeing that newly established system with empaths is still work in progress for all important players Hawke appeared in few scenes, made me reread his book because he is so intense and hot and the best Also, I haven t been as excited about a particular tortured Psy as I am after this book for a long time I want to know Ok, I ll be the one to say it, but I didn t really dig the name Memory, despite the story behind it It seems dramatic and screams I am a character in a fantasy book Because Lexie just had to have his own stupid Man Pain moment and keep away from Memory for her own safety, Nalini is exploring the concept of rogue changelings This could have been great, especially with genetic predisposition, but the vagueness of what are the markers left me a bit unsatisfied at the end When it comes to changelings, I really hope to see WindHaven next I have so many feather references to use, and it s logical next stepwith Lexie being a proven wolf chicken Right 4 star read All in all, old school Nalini, old school Psy Changeling book.Just how I came to love them Thank you to Nalini Singh for providing me with a free copy of book I m grateful for the opportunity to read it and

engaging if you started with this book That said you could definitely start with Silver Silence, book one of the Psy Changeling Trinity and have everything you need, but the series is a lot of fun and so starting at the very beginning with Slave to Sensation shouldn t be a hardship.I loved that we are back with the Snowdancer pack in this The wolves are always a lot of fun and I love how the pack lives together Alexi, is part of Snowdancers pack but he has kept himself on the outside since his brother went Rogue and had to be put down He has felt the pain of that everyday since it happened and no one has been able to pull him back.Memory has been kept as a captive since she was eight The only things she has known of the outside word are what she has seen on tv shows Her gift is one we haven t really explored before, she is an empath but she is something Her gift understands that monsters are in the Psy net it has been used to cause harm all of her life and so Memory sees it as a curse, but what if it could be , much much Alexi might have saved Memory from the prison she was held in for over a decade, but maybe she can also save him right back from the demons that haunt him from his past and the fear that just like his brother he will one day go rogue and kill those he once loved Their journey to love, acceptance mixed with a little revenge was really wonderful and Nalini Singh at her best.There are some other troubles going on in the background The Psy net is failing as it needs something than just the Psy to hold it together and the humans and changelings are not not forming emotional ties to the Psy quickly enough There are also sleepers in the psy, people whose silence really saved from accidentally killing others and now one s power has been awoken and the Pack and Arrows must find out who it is before they kill people.It was so great to get cameos from some of my favorite Wolves, Leopards and Arrows Seeing Sasha and her kid was so adorable that I almost couldn t contain my happiness at seeing how the toddler is doing Wolfe, Kaleb and Tammy also play small parts in the story and it was like being home again to see them all.Psy Changling remains one of my favorite PNR series ever I love how each story evolves the series and I never get bored with any of it Another wonderful book in this world with two characters I m glad found a way to each other Narration Angela Dawe has been the narrator of all of the Psy Changling books She is the voice I expect and the one I hear in my head even if I read them on my own She captures the voice of the story

      I ve been writing as long as I can remember and all of my stories always held a thread of romance even when I was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his eyes I love creating unique characters, love giving them happy endings and I even love the voices in my head There s no other job I would rather be doing In September 2002, when I got the call that Silhouette Desire wanted t I ve been writing as long as I can remember and all of my stories always held a thread of romance even when I was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his eyes I love creating unique characters, love giving them happy endings and I even love the voices in my head There s no other job I would rather be doing In September 2002, when I got the call that Silhouette Desire wanted to buy my first book, Desert Warrior, it was a dream come true I hope to continue living the dream until I keel over of old age on my keyboard.I was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand I also spent three years living and working in Japan, during which time I took the chance to travel around Asia I m back in New Zealand now, but I m always plotting new trips If you d like to see some of my travel snapshots, have a look at the Travel Diary page updated every month.So far, I ve worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher and not necessarily in that order Some might call that inconsistency but I call it grist for the writer s mill

    1. 4 StarsI was SO excited to go back to the Psy Changeling world with this newest installmentAnd even excited that we would be seeing it through the eyes of SnowDancer.SnowDancer is my favorite setting within this world, bar none which I have discussed in previous series reviews ad nauseam , so to get to go back and relish that environment for yet another fantastic Singh book was incomparable I really loved Memory and Alexei together Memory was fierce and feisty and I loved their intera 4 StarsI [...]


    2. It s still surprises me that there are 18 books in this series and I ve read every single one of them This is one of the best Paranormal world s that I ve ever read about and I don t think I ll ever get enough of it The Psy Network is failing and the only thing holding it together are the Empath Psy In this book we follow the story of a new type of E named Memory and Snowdancer lieutenant Alexei I always like the books with a changeling psy relationship most Alexei we ve seen glimpses of i It s [...]


    3. As always it was wonderful visiting my favorite pack I have a weakness for wolf shifters, and when I found out about the title and the blurb I was ecstatic.I really was intrigued by the blurb.Memory, even though she was kidnapped for many year, didn t lose her feistiness or sass She was a female character I adored for her strong will, endurance and strength to know what she wanted even if it seemed to make no sense She was one of those characters whose personality spoke to me immediately And As [...]


    4. This is like going to a high school reunion except that nobody got older, fatter, balder, and their marriages are still just like they are on their honeymoon Yeah, realistic.Beardy has a point.But in this case, this reunion is awesome for anyone who has read this series All of your favorites are here, including my fav Kaleb.Our new couple is Alexei, a wolf shifter from the Snowdancer pack, and Memory, a psy girl who was imprisoned all of her life Alexei rescues her from captivity and then This i [...]


    5. Just when I thought this world couldn t get any expansive, Nalini Singh comes and proves me wrong.I m so happy that we re back with the SnowDancer pack this time around I ve missed their presence in the series for a while now and I m so happy to see a lot of familiar faces not just from SnowDancer but from Darkriver crew as well.Despite the familiar characters and setting, this book explores some new territory in the Psy Changeling world It s both fascinating and terrifying at the same ti Just [...]


    6. As much as I ve enjoyed meeting the bears and spending time underwater with Blacksea in the last couple of books and I am really hoping we ll get to spend time with ALL of them I was still really excited that Wolf Rain would take us back to where it all began with the SnowDancer pack I can t help it, I ve loved this series for such a long time that spending time with the wolves and the cats of DarkRiver just feels like coming home and it was so wonderful to catch up with all the famil As much a [...]


    7. I ve missed the wolves of SnowDancer They, and DarkRiver, will always have the most special place in my changeling loving heart, simply because they were the first I ll never get over their unique personalities, their love and care, or the vastness of their packs They are large packs, but still family You can feel it in all their interactions, and it s like coming home for me.Fair warning Spoilers abound for any and all of the previous books in the series Just trust me and go start at the I ve m [...]
