My Review

Wild Embrace by Nalini Singh
Psy-Changeling
Paranormal Romance

 

Echo of Silence

Psy-Changeling #2.1 (Singh states that this one “occurs after Visions of Heat”)

In a deep-sea station, Tazia Nerif has found her life’s work as an engineer, keeping things running smoothly. But she wants nothing more than to break down the barrier of silence between her and her telekinetic Psy station commander…

4 Stars Rating
This one was a very sweet romance between two people who have never been in a relationship. It’s also very isolated from the rest of the story but this provides a new look at the Psy and their struggles outside of the changes that occur after Sascha and Faith leave the Net. I liked getting this look at a Psy who breaks silence in ways that are different then what we’ve seen before. Because this takes place mostly in a remote village after an earthquake, there is very little influence of the larger Psy-Changeling world that I love.

Dorian

A changeling who can never shift lives a life of quiet frustration—until he learns how to let his leopard come out and play…

3 Stars Rating
I really enjoyed seeing Dorian revealing his ability to shift to his Alpha, Lucas, and his family and friends. I always wondered about his because it’s not really ever brought up again in the regular story. This one was so short and it wasn’t really a story in the traditional sense. It was just snapshots of Dorian’s life at different moments. I was fine with this but I look as it more like a bonus than a story.

Partners of Persuasion

Psy-Changeling #11.1 (Singh states that this one “begins toward the end of Tangle of Need”)

Still raw from being burned by a dominant female, wolf changeling Felix will never again risk being a plaything. But for dominant leopard Dezi, he’s the most fascinating man she’s ever met. She just has to convince this gun-shy wolf that he can trust the dangerous cat who wants to take a slow, sexy bite out of him…

4 Stars Rating
This has been my favorite of this anthology and I am so in love with Felix. He’s so gentle and sweet but also tough, which is a favorite combination of mine. We’ve seen Singh write a story with a dominant male and submissive female but we haven’t seen the opposite and I loved the dynamic switch. Both Dezi and Felix knew their relationship would be work and that trust was the most important thing.

Flirtation of Fate

Psy-Changeling #12.1 (Singh states that this one “begins toward the end of Heart of Obsidian”)

Seven years ago, Kenji broke Garnet’s heart. Now the wolf packmates have to investigate the shocking murder of one of their own. And the more Kenji sees of the woman Garnet has become, the deeper he begins to fall once more. But even his primal instincts are no match for the dark secret he carries…

4 Stars Rating
This was different then most of the Psy-Changeling books because it was mostly about solving a murder. A SnowDancer wolf has been killed and Garnet and Kenji are tasked with investigating it. I enjoyed trying to figuring out the killer and both Garnet and Kenji were enjoyable characters. We’ve seen them flirting and teasing each other in the prior books so it was nice to get more time with them and watch them find each other. I also like any time that Singh shows the true diversity of her world. For the most part Changelings are great people: caring, loyal, and protective but there are those who aren’t. She doesn’t whitewash every character with the same morals so I appreciate it.
