This meme gives me time to promo books I love that I simply don’t have time to review. If you do want to join in, just link your post to the linky thing at the bottom (where it say’s you’re next or something similar) and post away. This week is the book that I have been waiting for for an age. I know the first two chapters are up on the website, but I’m not gonna spoil it for people.
Step into New York Times bestseller Nalini Singh’s explosive and shockingly passionate Psy-Changeling world…
A dangerous, volatile rebel, hands stained bloodred.
A woman whose very existence has been erased.
A love story so dark, it may shatter the world itself.
A deadly price that must be paid.
The day of reckoning is here.
From “the alpha author of paranormal romance” (Booklist) comes the most highly anticipated novel of her career—one that blurs the line between madness and genius, between subjugation and liberation, between the living and the dead
I didn’t realise until I read this book just how clever a writer Nalini Singh is. I have enjoyed every book so far but I didn’t realise how every single book seems to have been leading to this one. There are so many secrets revealed that I didn’t realise existed until I saw them uncovered, so many shock answers to questions I didn’t realise that I had until they got answered.
Did I know who the hero was? Yes, I read the spoiler. Honestly, it didn’t ruin this book at all. I was shocked by the heroine’s identity, by her powers, by who the main bad guy was and I was shocked by the ending. But then, after an hour of digesting, I wasn’t. The series has lead to this; each book had a part in either building the story-arc towards it or preparing me as a reader to accept it. This is not an easy story to read. Neither of these characters come close to being perfect, but with every book Singh has chipped away a piece of my resistance towards this tale by making me realise that, in this world, there are no easy answers. It will be going on my anti-hero shelf, it will be going on my conflicted shelf and it will be going on my must-read shelf.
I cannot fathom where this series is going next but I can’t wait to read more. I do know that I trust Nalini Singh to make me love what ever she decides to do.
