REVIEW

"This book has depth and heart that is stunning"

The world is changing, evolving, progressing towards the future, possibly a new future for all Changelings, Psy and Humans. The Council is an ever present entity with unknown variables; business, politics, all mixed with murderous intent, a bad cocktail. Can the Packs of DarkRiver and the SnowDancers bring forth a new future, one for all people, one that's safe for their mates and their cubs? Possibly one free of murderous madness, a madness spawned of Silence, a madness that is capable of creating the ultimate serial monsters to prey on victims as evil deems fit. Nature is striving to prevail along with the help of the compassionate animal side of nature, of the Changelings nature, for only they truly respect all that Silence is not, all Council doesn't want changed. Council is business first though, and business is after all business, and some deals are just plain lucrative, for the time, even murder is lucrative. Enter an amazing, exciting, sensual world of the Psy/Changelings, you won't be able to leave.

Judd Lauren was the perfect Psy, handsome, deadly, powerful and highly skilled, until his family was threatened. Now he has new allegiances, but he also has secrets, dark ones only the coldest of cold Psy have the kind of secrets he does. Only he can do the things he can, only he knows how truly dangerous he is. Silence was perfected for beings like him after all, nothing shook his Silence, nothing until Brenna. The small and beautiful wolf changeling survived the most horrific of brutal acts his race could inflict and yet she lived, she amazed him, stunned him. He would protect her and secrets as his own, why he had no clue, but he would, somehow he didn't count on her ability to break the silence of his existence. When she is threatened again he will use every deadly skill his mind possesses as the killer he was raised to be as well as every bit of his impressive physical strength as a soldier to keep her safe from harm. He must however, protect her first and foremost from him, could he keep her safe from what his race had created when they created Judd Lauren? A killer is dangerous, but none are more dangerous than he is, after all Psy are the best of the best... killers. He was after all, the Man of Ice.

Brenna Kincaid lived, she survived, but she wasn't alive really, wasn't the beautiful, vibrant woman she had been once, she was far from it now. Secrets cloud her mind in the aftermath of the psychopathic killers "experiments", the lone survivor of his tortures, she lives with the horrors he forever put into her world. Now she is seeing new horrors in her dreams, another killer's brutal acts that mimic her own horrors, or is she losing her mind? The horrors that threatened to destroy her somehow abated when she was with Judd, somehow she was safe even if he was a Man of Ice. A Psy so powerful, so mysterious, so incredible in his beauty and so cold that he was the epitome of everything she should fear. The wolf inside her wants to warm his heart of ice, if only her heart and mind hadn't been damaged forever, maybe she could. Though she lived through her ordeals, she is not normal anymore and that could threaten her future. Survival comes with another far steeper price, being a target yet again. She may not live long enough to worry about the trauma that threatens her mind, her very life is in danger and only one incredibly handsome and deadly Psy can keep her safe, or will he hurt her far worse then any other Psy or changeling? Could she trust him with her heart and body and trust him with her mind as well, without endangering his life in the process. If they live, maybe she will find out.

I am absolutely impressed! I have become an addicted fan to Ms. Singh's work. This book has depth and heart that is stunning, I had a hard time putting it down. The mystery, politics and intrigue as always are amazing, the Psy and Changeling conflicts are incredible, evolving and exciting. This is action packed as well as sexy as all get out! The emotional development reaches your heart and leads to such explosive chemistry, that coupled with the need to keep turning pages makes this one of my favorite new series. I can not recommend Nalini Singh enough, she is simply a MUST read, truly a star in the paranormal romance world.

SUMMARY

**2007 PEARL HONORABLE MENTION - BEST SHAPESHIFTER

Explore new heights of sensuality in this return to the world of the Psy—where two people who know evil intimately must unlock the good within their icy hearts…

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 a defector, 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…
