A rebel Psy scientist finds herself at the mercy of a changeling who has sworn vengeance against her kind in this thrilling romance in Nalini Singh's New York Times bestselling series.

Separated from her son and forced to create a neural implant that will mean the effective enslavement of her psychically gifted race, Ashaya Aleine is the perfect Psy--cool, calm, least on the surface. Inside, she's fighting a desperate battle to save her son and escape the vicious cold of the PsyNet. Yet when escape comes, it leads not to safety, but to the lethal danger of a sniper's embrace.

DarkRiver sniper Dorian Christensen lost his sister to a Psy killer. Though he lacks the changeling ability to shift into animal form, his leopard lives within. And that leopard's rage at the brutal loss is a clawing darkness that hungers for vengeance. Falling for a Psy has never been on Dorian's agenda. But charged with protecting Ashaya and her son, he discovers that passion has a way of changing the rules...

No Spoilers. Five books into the series and it's still going strong yet always holding back in terms of the big picture. Psy like Ming, Kaleb, etc are always in the picture but nothing big happens with them...yet. Something big has to be brewing. I just wonder when, where, how quickly or I guess things may drag out since there are 5 more books!

I love this series because it's unique and intriguing. I enjoy the many psychological issues i.e. not only involving emotional, relationship, loyalty etc. but the whole psychological web bonds and its ramifications.

Ashaya has to be one of my fav favorite heroines of the series. She was written with such intellect and strength I just can't help but love her. NS did a good job with the witty interaction between the h & H early on in the book.

Sometimes though I can't help but wonder why these psy-women can fall so quickly/easily for these domineering, possessive changeling men. I can understand that fate brings them together with a "mate" and that's why the animal in the changeling sort of decides for them but why would someone whose NOT changeling be independently drawn to that changeling themselves? I guess they're just too sexy to resist!!! It's just a book anyways...

I look forward to more.
