Summary:

Used to cold silence, Faith NightStar is suddenly being tormented by dark visions of blood and murder. A bad sign for anyone, but worse for Faith, an F-Psy with the highly sought after ability to predict the future. Then the visions show her something even more dangerous – aching need…exquisite pleasure. But so powerful is her sight, so fragile the state of her mind, that the very emotions she yearns to embrace could be the end of her.

Changeling Vaughn D’Angelo can take the form of either man or jaguar, but it is his animal side that is overwhelmingly drawn to Faith. The jaguar’s instinct is to claim this woman it finds so utterly fascinating and the man has no argument. But while Vaughn craves sensation and hungers to pleasure Faith in every way, desire is a danger that could snap the last threads of her sanity. And there are Psy who need Faith’s sight for their own purposes. They must keep her silenced – and keep her from Vaughn.

Review:

I loved Vaughn D’Angelo since book one, but the best part was seeing him struggle to change Faith and make her accept this different reality full of love and emotions. She’s the second Psy to abandon the net and we can see that after Sascha left things started to become a little difficult, but Faith was very important and her work is extremely powerful. Faith can see the future and the companies hire her to predict theirs investments, but after her sister died we ca see that her visions are changing and she decided to ask for the help in the only person to survive outside the net.

I liked seeing another couple and this time was a little more difficult because Vaughn’s animal is closer to the surface after all the time he spend in animal form while growing up. But Faith for me was perfect because she’s practically fearless and trusted Vaughn to help her all the way.

Summary:

In a world that denies emotions, where the ruling Psy punish any sign of desire, Sascha Duncan must conceal the feelings that brand her as flawed. To reveal them would be to sentence herself to the horror of “rehabilitation”—the complete psychic erasure of everything she ever was…

Both human and animal, Lucas Hunter is a Changeling hungry for the very sensations the Psy disdain. After centuries of uneasy coexistence, these two races are now on the verge of war over the brutal murders of several Changeling women. Lucas is determined to find the Psy killer who butchered his packmate, and Sascha is his ticket into their closely guarded society. But he soon discovers that this ice-cold Psy is very capable of passion—and that the animal in him is fascinated by her. Caught between their conflicting worlds, Lucas and Sascha must remain bound to their identities—or sacrifice everything for a taste of darkest temptation…

Review:

This was a book to fall in love. I’ve read this two years ago and decided to join the read along to push me into finishing this series. These is one of those cases of love at first sight, because Lucas was perfect for me. Alpha, with some dark moments and really gentle. We can totally see him pushing but in the good way because Sascha needed to know this different world and trust in someone. Her family and her entire life was pretty much a lie and we see that she’s sufferenig a lot.

I loved the way he’s protective and at the same time a great guy. He’s a shifter so those senses and touches are so necessary, but the Psy are cold and Sascha had no idea that life coulld be this fullfilling. I loved meeting the rest of the pack, the sentinels and we can see they love each other very much. Tammy’s cubs are super cute. I don’t want to overshare and spoiler anyone, but this book is perfect for shifters lovers.

Review: Blaze of Memory by Nalini Singh

Blaze of Memory (Psy-Changeling, #7)Title: Blaze of Memory
Author:  Nalini Singh

Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release date: November 3rd 2009
Number of pages: 373

A woman without a past becomes the pawn of the man who controls her future…

Dev Santos discovers her unconscious and battered, with no memory of who she is. All she knows is that she’s dangerous. Charged with protecting his people’s most vulnerable secrets, Dev is duty-bound to eliminate all threats. It’s a task he’s never hesitated to complete…until he finds himself drawn to a woman who might prove to be the enemy’s most insidious weapon yet.

Stripped of her memories by a shadowy oppressor and programmed to carry out cold-blooded murder, Katya Haas is fighting desperately for her sanity. Her only hope is Dev. But how can she expect to gain the trust of a man who could very well be her next target? For in this game, one must die…

 

Photobucket This series was great so far, but this book was not my favorite and for me it was mostly the fact I missed some changeling mojo. The couple was a bit too frost for my taste and I wanted to love more because Dev was such a great guy.

 
Katya was such a strong girl but in this book she lost her appeal to me and became a bit boring, but I liked the fact she fought all the way to retrieve her memories and tried to make the right thing. I just didn’t connect with her.
 
Dev was smart enough not to trust her without some precautions. I liked that about him, but he just left some sense along the book and followed her like a puppy to points deserted. Not my favorite action.
 
I liked the final. It was surprising and very different, plus the changelings are back. Just wish Councilor Ming was death already.

When a brilliant changeling researcher is kidnapped, DarkRiver sentinel Mercy, a cat, and SnowDancer lieutenant Riley, a wolf, must work together to track the young man-before his shadowy captors decide he’s no longer useful. Along the way, the two dominants may find that submitting to one another uncovers not just a deadly conspiracy, but a passion so raw that it’ll leave them both branded by fire.

Photobucket

This book was a bit different from the rest of the series because I never thought it was possivel for two different animals to mate. Okay these two species are somewhat similar, but they have so strong personalities that it was almost impossible to see them both together without a lot of fight.
 
The world is crazier than ever and we see the seed of a revolution inside the PsyNet, but of course the councilors are trying to stop all sort of manifestation and killing anyone involved with the so called break.
 
But there’s also lots of sexy scenes and we see the beginning of a new great romance. At first it was strange how they could overcome rules and their own pact. But I actually loved these two.
 
Mercy is strong and very capable, she works directly with Lucas and is very important to the pact, but also a very alpha woman that needed a even more stronger male to surrender.
 
Riley was a very closed person and we know how much he suffered trying to save his sister. But we could discover during the book, he feels guilty for what happened and nobody knew about his secrets.

Ahh, it’s Dorian book! And I wanted him to be happy with his animal, but he’s so much better than that, he became an incredible sentinel just to prove the pact he’s strong and can be an active part off it. He deserve an incredible woman and I agree with Nalini that Ashaya is perfect to him.
 
She’s strong and a part of the revolution, she helped save children and fights everyday to keeps secrets from the Council. She has secrets of her own and even battles to keep her twin at bay. She’s like Wonder Woman!!
 
These two are perfect together and I hoped during the book Ashaya would help Dorian bring his animal out. But the book is more than just that, we also have the humans showing they want to fight too, and the packs have to handle attacks from all the sides.
 
This was a very action packed book and I loved every minute of it. Ashaya was perfect during her escape moments and so powerful to fight the PsyNet.

Clay Bennett is a powerful DarkRiver sentinel, but he grew up in the slums with his human mother, never knowing his changeling father. As a young boy without the bonds of Pack, he tried to stifle his animal nature. He failed…and committed the most extreme act of violence, killing a man and losing his best friend, Talin, in the bloody aftermath. Everything good in him died the day he was told that she, too, was dead.

Talin McKade barely survived a childhood drenched in bloodshed and terror. Now a new nightmare is stalking her life–the street children she works to protect are disappearing and turning up dead. Determined to keep them safe, she unlocks the darkest secret in her heart and returns to ask the help of the strongest man she knows…

Clay lost Talin once. He will not let her go again, his hunger to possess her, a clawing need born of the leopard within. As they race to save the innocent, Clay and Talin must face the violent truths of their past…or lose everything that ever mattered.

Photobucket
The is the friends becomes lovers story that actually worked for me, but maybe because I wanted Clay to have something good in his life. He suffers so much without his family. And after growing up with the humans having to hide his animal must have been awful.
Talin was for me a very strong human, is she’s just a human, but after the story progress we discover she’s more than that and is crucial to defend her truth and save those poor’s kids.
I liked Talin value and her strong motivations, but wanted her to search for Clay before this, because he’s tormented by their past and how she left him.
I liked this two working together and how they tried to learn from the past. For me Talin deserved forgiveness and her happy ending was well deserved. Clay was a protector from the very begin in their relationship and they worked the kinks out.

As an Arrow, an elite soldier in the Psy Council ranks, Judd Lauren was forced to do terrible things in the name of his people. Now he is a defector, and his dark abilities have made him the most deadly of assassins – cold, pitiless, unfeeling. Until he meets Brenna…

Brenna Shane Kincaid was an innocent before she was abducted – and had her mind violated – by a serial killer. Her sense of evil runs so deep, she fears she could become a killer herself. Then the first dead body is found, victim of a familiar madness. Judd is her only hope, yet her sensual changeling side rebels against the inhuman chill of his personality, even as desire explodes between them. Shocking and raw, their passion is a danger that threatens not only their hearts, but their very lives…

Photobucket
This series keeps getting better and in this book the author showed a different side of both species. We got a new relationship between an ex-Arrow and a Psy who abandoned the PsyNet to save his family and is a very dark and powerful man. Judd is now refugee on the SnowDancer pack and is helping the wolfs against the Psy, one of his missions he helped save Brenna.
Brenna story is related to the first book and is traumatized by her past and how a twisted Psy tried to kill her. Now Brenna is suffering again because the pack discovered an spy is working from the inside. A wolf is responsible for what happened to her in the first place.
These two were hot together and we now know more of the Psy way of hiding it’s problems and Judd is responsible for a very dark side of the Psy revenge. He has issues about the past and is trying to work on the new revolution.
I liked this romance and the action was also very dark and showed a good side of this future. Brenna was strong and very beautiful girl, and I loved how she fought for how things were and she just wants her life back.
