4 Story Stars + 1 Hot Alpha Star
I’ve said it once…
I’ve said it twice…
I will undoubtedly say it a million times…
Nalini Singh is a QUEEN of paranormal/urban fantasy romance.
If you consider yourself a paranormal romance fan and you HAVEN’T checked out this series yet, you are just straight screwing yourself, people.
As I’ve also said before, Ms. Singh is in that top echelon of authors for me.
“Top Echelon” as in we are talking about the they-could-defecate-on-paper-and-I’d-want-to-read-it level of stalk here.
It’s just that simple, folks.
This book marks the beginning of what Ms. Singh herself has called the second arc of the Psy-Changeling – now dubbed Psy-Changeling Trinity from here on out- series and she starts it off with something we have not seen before:
A BEAR Changeling.
And not JUST any bear Changeling.
An ALPHA bear Changeling.
A 6 foot, mega hot inch Russian alpha bear Changeling.
Now, if you follow my reviews on this series, you know that I am blatantly biased and completely and utterly predisposed toward changelings. (For more in depth discussion on this topic, see HERE and HERE.)
My favorite books in this series (with the exception of that second “HERE” above) always involve a Changeling.
And Valentin does NOT disappoint my friends.
What a hot bearful of just plain #SCRUMPTIOUS.
Seriously though, Valentin is now definitely an honorable mention in the Val’s Psy-Changeling Husband Awards.
Hawke and Kaleb are still tied for numero uno, with Lucas picking up first loser, and Clay bringing home the bronze…
Leaving Valentin in a strong fourth place finish position.
So – when you consider whom he’s up against…
That’s, like, totally almost like winning.
Silver was a cool glass of heroine and I really liked her.
For whatever reason, I always seem to like the ice queens.
Not sure why…
They are always just very layered, in my opinion – when done right, of course – which Nalini does… right, that is.
I really liked how this book started off – it jumped right in.
There is a lot of forward movement with the overarching Trinity Accord/EmNet story line – which did make the drag in places, but I was fine with that.
All in all, another winner by Ms. Singh and a great addition to the series which I already can’t wait to re-read.
And with that…I’m off to set up for this huge party my husband decided we needed to have.
Cause, you know, my cooking and hostess skills are a personal strength.
