When a brilliant changeling researcher is kidnapped, DarkRiver sentinel Mercy, a cat, and SnowDancer lieutenant Riley, a wolf, must work together to track the young man-before his shadowy captors decide he’s no longer useful. Along the way, the two dominants may find that submitting to one another uncovers not just a deadly conspiracy, but a passion so raw that it’ll leave them both branded by fire
I was really looking forward to this book in the Psy-Changeling series, because I’m a BIG FAN of both Mercy and Riley! I wasn’t disappointed at all!! Not to mention….this book started out with a BANG!
The chemistry between Riley and Mercy was off the hook. I loved how they extremely disliked each other but still couldn’t fight their attraction to one another. I mean, Mercy TRIED….but Riley wouldn’t let her. Speaking of Riley….HOLY HOTNESS! I loved his dominant side SO MUCH! And I loved how Mercy tried to prove she was more dominant like 100% of the time. They were the perfect couple!
Another thing that I really liked about this book was all of the side scenes. Are you a fan of Hawke and Sienna? This book will MAKE. YOU. SWOON! This is actually the book that made me skip straight ahead to book 10 and read their book. GOD! And Lucas and Sascha? Their scenes were beautiful! Both of those couples need another book of their own. PLEASE!?
As far as the action scenes go…they could have been more enhanced. That does seem to be a theme with this series. I also would have liked to see more interactions between the two Changelings who came from Mercy’s grandma’s pack. I kind of felt like they were basically there for no reason since they didn’t really do all that much. I would have liked to see a bigger showdown. Nalini Singh has a habit of adding side plots that never really play out to their full potential. It’s annoying.
Overall, I really liked this book! BIG fan of Riley and Mercy! <3 Go read this entire series RIGHT NOW!
