Dive into a world torn apart by a powerful race with phenomenal powers of the mind—and none of the heart…
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 co-existence, 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…
Nalini Singh is one of my favorite authors and after devouring the first 3 Psy-Changeling books, I think it is my new favorite series!
Sascha and Lucas were amazing. Sascha is our intro into the Psy mind and world in Slave to Sensation. She is fascinating because she is a Psy who knows there is ‘something wrong’ in her brain. Luckily, she has Lucas to save her from a fate worse than death…reprogramming!
In Visions of Heat we get another Psy female who is feeling that her mind is failing her and reprogramming is in her future. But, since Sascha managed to leave the Psy Net without dying, Faith feels there might be hope! And she has Vaughn to help her let go of Silence and leave the Net.
Caressed by Ice is Brenna’s story. In book 1 she is kidnapped and Sascha helps save her from a Psy killer. Now she finds she is falling for another Psy. However, this Psy, Judd, is just as powerful and deadly as the monster who kidnapped and tortured her. Judd is terrified to let go of silence because he has killed by accident before.
Overall, this world Singh has created is fascinating and unique and so are its inhabitants. I am chomping at the bit to get more of this series. It is also a series I will most likely reread!
