REVIEW: Heart of Obsidian by Nalini Singh


Rating 4 Stars

I enjoyed the continued world building and the development of the story arc but it’s not one of my favorites from this series. A lot of things culminated in this book as the world is irrevocably changed by the fall of Silence, the dissolution of the Council, and the attacks made by Pure Psy. Now that everything has been dumped together and shaken up I can’t wait to see where Nalini Singh is going to take this story.

Kaleb has been an intriguing character from the beginning because there are so many rumors and mysterious swirling around him and his upbringing and his powers. Is he a good guy? Is he a bad guy? In this case it’s more that he’s a very complex guy who will do anything — even kill — to protect the only person that means anything to him. His complexity made for an interesting but heavy story. I loved seeming him learn to bend and adjust for someone else and his devotion is beautiful. However, if anything happened to Sahara you know that Kaleb would bloody the world in anger. While Kaleb’s behavior toward Sahara might be very romantic for some, I was a little uncomfortable with Kaleb’s obsession/love for Sahara. The history between Sahara and Kaleb means that Kaleb already has very strong, though suppressed, feelings toward Sahara. We don’t really get to see the development of Kaleb falling in love and embracing it because it’s already happened.
