Caressed by Ice by Nalini Singh

I’m really enjoying how every book in this series follows a different couple – they are all interrelated and have been mentioned in passing in the previous books, but it is a totally new love story, with all of its own challenges and difficulties. Singh manages to weave these seemingly unrelated tales together into a glorious whole that not only makes you fall in love with the world of the Psy-Changeling again and again and again, but also continuously furthers their battles and tale in a completely natural way.

Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh

Visions of Heat left a tantalising hint of rejection in the air – something that helped to make the story all the more enticing. Although it is, in a way, obvious that Vaughn and Faith will eventually become mated, the idea that Vaughn could actually be rejected makes it impossible to put this book down. It also heightens the awareness of Singh’s amazing talent to create a story that will batter the senses and expand the heart. This fear also helped to make the eventual happy ending all the more sweet and tear-jerking.

Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh

This is an amazing start to a fantastic paranormal romance series. The fact that it is written by a woman who is from New Zealand simply further endeared it to me. After all, they are our neighbours! But I digress, A Slave to Sensation is everything that a good paranormal romance should be – it is full of steamy passion, but this is balanced by incredibly complex characters, a vivid new world and an intricate storyline which doesn’t simply rely on the story’s raw sensuality.

Whisper of Sin by Nalini Singh

This was a really nice short story that helps to place the unrest and political wars of the Psy-Changeling world into context. It was also a great way to meet new characters that are peripherally present in some of the other novels in the series. Whisper of Sin is a great short story and reminder of the protective nature of the Changelings – although it is a tantalising story of love and lust, it is also about protecting the people from gangsters and predators who care nothing for the people under their care.

Curran’s POV by Gordon Andrews

Rereading scenes from the first four books from Curran’s point of view is one of the most exciting things that I have done in a while. This also happens to be the first eBook that I have ever read (a little behind the times, I know). A great experience, and I was actually a little disappointed when the short stories ended.

Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews

Curran and Kate start a new life and a new era is ushered in with the beginning of Magic Shifts. Their new life embraces their love and small family – which you quickly realise is much bigger than just the three of them. Having a family away from The Pack was an incredibly new dynamic and one that just feels so right within their lives.

Magic Breaks by Ilona Andrews

This isn’t the last book in the series; luckily. However, it acts as a bit of a midway point, a mid-end to the series. It ties up some character arcs and storylines and answers so many questions that it is actually a really safe place to pause reading the series in. Not that I would recommend pausing this series, but regardless, it is a great way to neatly tie up some lose ends. Andrews also managed to seriously surprise me with the way in which they did this – the conclusion was startling and took a turn which I never expected.

Magic Steals by Ilona Andrews

Revisiting Dali and Jim is always a pleasure, and this novella was no different. Dali and Jim’s relationship is so much more subtle than the other relationships in the Kate Daniels series, but no more passionate. Dali’s strikingly different attitude and outlook on life is so refreshing, and I am really hoping that more of her stories will be told as the series continues.

Magic Rises by Ilona Andrews

Kate and Curran are truly tested in Magic Rises. This is the most heart-stopping and gut-wrenching tale of the Kate Daniels series so far. At least for me, I cried at multiple points throughout the tale, and just couldn’t put it down until I had read it from cover to cover. Part of that was also the very frustrating relationship between the two primaries – a few times I was even torn between throwing the book across the room after Curran and Kate’s pigheadedness, and ripping through to the next page to hope that they would fix up their many blunders.
