Heart of Obsidian by Nalini Singh

Kaleb Krychek has been an enigma throughout the series. At the very beginning he seems to be the portent of all that is evil, but then, as the story of the Psy-Changeling world progresses, he seems to become far more ambiguous in his morality. Something that led to no end of confusion and intrigue as I’ve slowly read the series. So discovering more about him and his past, let alone the one person he holds dear was a thoroughly enjoyable journey that I encourage all Singh fans to undertake.

Partners in Persuasion by Nalini Singh

The idea of a more dominant female that was so beautifully explored in Play of Passion comes to full fruition in this great short story. Not to mention the way in which the cross pack relationships that Riley and Mercy began seem to filter through and bloom within Partners in Persuasion. Not only does this short story have the same tantalising and spine-tingling romance that characterises the Psy-Changeling series, it also displays the filtering through of the expanded acceptance between the two bonded changeling groups.

Wild Embrace by Nalini Singh

This collection of short stories was kind of intense. Unlike Wild Invitation, every story in this collection had a slightly twistier and more emotionally potent tale. Except for the first short story, Echo of Silence, the tales all connected intimately into the characters that I have fallen in love with in the Psy-Changeling world. Again and again I am flummoxed by Singh’s ability to make me connect so deeply with a new character every time I break the spine of one of her stories.

Tangle of Need by Nalini Singh

The storylines in the Psy-Changeling world just keep getting more and more complex. The fact that they do is not only a testimony to Singh’s ability to expand on her universe, whilst maintaining unique romance stories. After reading eleven books in the same series, all with their own, unique romantic partners, I was expecting to begin to feel same same about the storylines. It is hard to have a series with such a common thread have enough variety to keep one enthralled. Especially when it is not focused on one, single character’s development.

Kiss of Snow by Nalini Singh

I have been waiting and waiting for the story of Sienna and Hawke since first meeting Hawke in Slave to Sensation. The slow filtering of information about their mutual attraction throughout the past nine books, just increased my need, no, my desire to find out how their story progressed. Add to that the fact that Kiss of Snow has the first real incursion by the Psy into SnowDancer territory, and this whole book was absolutely impossible to put down.

Play of Passion by Nalini Singh

One of the things that I have really loved about Singh’s stories and writing is the inner strength of both of her characters – both male and female. Although often the males are incredibly possessive and protective, the women tend to match them, and sometimes even out do them in their own protective possessiveness. And Indigo is no different, in fact, the ability of a more dominant female to mate with a male was an incredibly intriguing and enjoyable way in which to alter the stereotypes that I am so used to being exposed to in the modern world.

Bonds of Justice by Nalini Singh

I love the idea of cops bent on justice – those who feel that the victims deserve justice, and ignore the politics that can sometimes stop this from happening. Max’s integrity and desire to chase down the truth in spite of his lack of political acumen shone from the pages of Mine to Possess. The expansion on this character and his drive to find the truth was a great theme throughout this novel, as was the backstory to his past and motivations.

Blaze of Memory by Nalini Singh

It took me a little longer to get full immersed in this story – there was little contact with changelings, and it was of a very different pace and tone to the preceding six books. However, when I did finally fall in love with Dev and Katya, as I have with every other Psy-Changeling couple, I fell hard. Hard enough to weep at moments throughout the story.
