Discover the exhilarating risks of passion in the breathtaking new Psy-Changeling novel by Nalini Singh, the New York Timesbestselling “alpha author of paranormal romance” (Booklist)…
Adria, wolf changeling and resilient soldier, has made a break with the past—one as unpredictable in love as it was in war. Now comes a new territory, and a devastating new complication: Riaz, a SnowDancer lieutenant already sworn to a desperate woman who belongs to another.
For Riaz, the primal attraction he feels for Adria is a staggering betrayal. For Adria, his dangerous lone-wolf appeal is beyond sexual. It consumes her. It terrifies her. It threatens to undermine everything she has built of her new life. But fighting their wild compulsion toward one another proves a losing battle.
Their coming together is an inferno…and a melding of two wounded souls who promise each other no commitment, no ties, no bonds. Only pleasure. Too late, they realize that they have more to lose than they ever imagined. Drawn into a cataclysmic Psy war that may alter the fate of the world itself, they must make a decision that might just break them both.
Not a fan of this cover. I listened to the audio and this is the yummy cover I looked at while listening and I like it so much more.
I started to notice in the last book that the story was more than just one couples tale. That trend continued and expanded in this book. Besides the story of Adria and Raiz, this book expands the story of Sienna and Hawk as well as some fun peeks at Mercy and Riley. And it sets up book twelve with lots of wonderings about what's up with Kaleb Krycheck. This really turns this into a series book that probably shouldn't be read standalone.
Knowing what I did about Raiz, I wasn't sure how things were going to work for him and Adria. And there was a lot of frustration and anger between them as they react to the unwanted sexual tension. I wouldn't want to be the same room with them near the beginning of this book. But their attraction forced them to become friends and I enjoyed their relationship because of that. They really developed a relationship beyond a mating bond. That's kinda different.
These characters did capture my heart and I hurt for both of them. Neither of them had had much luck with their heart. They really did find a way to heal each other and that makes them unique in a world where the mating bond rules.
The world in this series is going through some changes and I can't wait to see what happens next. Tantalizing hints are dropped about what's up with the former counselor, Kaleb Krycheck and I must admit to be very curious to keep reading. I so love this world and am still incredible obsessed.
If you love paranormal romance with endearing characters, a masterful world and a great story, then this is a perfect story for you.
