I love losing myself in books of any kind
The plot and the characters. I was so waitin for Hawk's story
Hawk picking up Sienna at Wilds bar. Loved his reaction of her dancing on top the bar. Also enjoyed the scenes of Sienna coming into her powers.
Hawk running after Sienna when she began losing control of her powers.
I actually did
Make this into a must see movie!
This is my first Nalini Singh romance novel. I LOVE this audio book. My first day listening to it in my car and I was SO captivated by the story. The romance between Hawke and Sienna was hot. Also, you get a secondary romance between Walker and Lara. I will definitly be buying the rest of the series.
My favorite book in the series its about time they finally gave in! LOVE IT
ITS THE BEST
SHE DOE A GREAT JOB.
WHEN HAWK FINDS SIENNA AND TELLS HER "YOU LEFT ME".
I love love loved this book. I love it so much I don't really know what to say about it. I have been waiting for this book for a long time. This was gift to myself after I finished my bar exam. Hawke and Sienna were the perfect couple. I also loved the side story of Walker and Lara. They make a sweet couple.
I wanted to read about Hawke since the very first book in the series and I am glad he got a happy ending. Sienna is perfect for him. The tension between the two pratically jumped out of the book. Like I said about I just don't know what to say about the book. It was great. Prefect through and through.
This book is yet another hit from Ms. Singh. A must read that I will be reading again. This book is the reason why Nalini Singh is and will remain on of my favorite authors.
Wow! This book was so much and more! Sienna has been pushing Hawke's buttons since she was 16 and new to the world of changeling life. A psy by birth, she is one of the powerful types of psy's that can do a lot of damage to herself and to those around her.
Now 19, she has lived in Snowdancer community for a few years having mostly integrated to their ways and customs while she struggles for control of her powers. As if that isn't enough of a daily battle, she is utterly smitten by the alpha of the pack whom she believes sees her as a delinquent adolescent.
Hawke is a true alpha male in every sense of the word. Having become the alpha wolf of the Snowdancer pack at an early age, he has helped his pack grow and prosper into a strong and superior changeling community that has formed many strong alliances with other changeling groups in the surrounding area. Since accepting a family of psy's into their midst three years ago, he has struggled for control over the unruly teenager who sparks something within him he hasn't felt in a long time.
Singh does a fantastic job with this story. We have been skirting around the issue and tension that is Hawke and Sienna for nine books and finally their book is released and it is beautiful! There is a lot of ground that needs to be covered due to the events of the previous book. In addition, Sienna and Hawke's tale had a lot to live up to and a lot of background that Singh needed to be sure to remain consistent with in terms of her loyal fans.
This book does not disappoint and I would say for any who hasn't read the psy-changeling novels, to start with book one and work your way to this lovely treat of happy goodness. You will be glad you did.
Narrator: Angela Dawe
I like the consistency in which the series has had the same narrator throughout. Dawe does a great job with the reading and the character voices. It isn't like she is trying to mimic different voices, but more that she does a good job with distinction making it easier for me to know which character is saying what.
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
This was a really good story. I've been waiting for Hawke and Sienna's book for ages and I was so happy to finally get to see them get together. I also liked that there was a secondary romance between Walker (Sienna's Uncle) and Lara (the pack healer) that gave us a extra bit of sweet to experience.
Sienna is part of a small family of Psy that escaped from the Psy-net. They expected to die but found shelter with the Snow Dancer wolf pack. Sienna is an extremely strong X-Psy. This is a type of Psy that usually die before they reach their 20s and is considered extremely dangerous. Sienna was trained for most of her life by the Psy Council member, Ming, and learned much from him, including battle strategy and how to use her powers. He also told her just how deadly her powers are and she's terrified that eventually her powers will escape her and cause death and destruction to those she loves.
Hawke is the Alpha of the Snow Dancer wolf pack. He hates most Psy but does make exceptions for those that don't follow the Psy Council any more. Hawke had a number of tragedies in his youth and one of the losses was the girl that was supposed to have been his mate. She died when she was only 5 years old (Hawke was 10 years old) and since then Hawke has determined that he will live his life alone.
Sienna has been attracted to Hawke since her family first came to the Snow dancer's pack. She was only 16 then and Hawke didn't seem to like her so she tried to suppress it and go on with her life. Sienna grows up a bit more and gets trained as a Snow Dancer fighter, becoming a responsible member of the pack. Sienna tried to move on from her attraction to Hawke but hasn't found anyone that brings about the feelings that Hawke does. Hawke treats Sienna with a very brusque manner, treating her more like a child than anything else. This is Hawke's way of trying to push Sienna away and it works for a couple years but once she hits 18 he has a harder and harder time trying to fight his wolf to stay away from her. Now you may wonder why Hawke's wolf is so interested...me too. Hawke insists that he has no ability to take a mate because the girl that was supposed to be his mate died as a child. The thing is that they were never mated so Hawke could still mate but he's in major denial about this and refuses to accept it as a possibility even when it's brought up. It makes perfect sense but Hawke is living in the valley of denial and wont see reason. Because of this he spends the first part of the story pushing Sienna away (which I found highly annoying). He eventually decides he has to have Sienna but still insists that he can't mate and she'll just have to accept what he can give her. Sienna is unwilling to accept Hawke's half-lame offer at first but eventually realizes that some of Hawke is better than none of Hawke and accepts the start of something between them.
While Hawke and Sienna are starting their "dance", there's major happenings with some of the Psy Councilors that seem to have decided to take out the Leopard and Wolf packs in the area (as well as 2 Psy Councilors that have ties to the packs) in an all out attack. There are some initial, smaller attacks that take place first and the packs have to scramble to try to isolate where the attacks are coming from and how to protect themselves from future attacks. Through this all, Sienna and Hawke have their relationship issues to deal with but they also have the problem of Sienna's growing power. It's gotten to the point where she's building power so fast that she can't siphon it off fast enough to keep from overloading. The more time that goes by, the more Sienna's power build and the more likely it is that she'll blow (and if she does, the blast may take out a huge area..like most of the state...or more). There's much scrambling trying to find a solution for Sienna's power issues as well. There's actually a lot going on in the story but it all fits in together well. Hawke and Sienna do come together and in an unexpected way that ends up bypassing Hawke's "issues". Walker and Lara get together as a side romance. There's happy news for Sascha and Lucas. The attack comes and it's bad but the good guys do come out on top. There's lots of drama but all the storylines get tied up nicely and we get 2 HEAs at the end.
I really enjoyed this story. I loved seeing Hawke and Sienna (and Walker and Lara) get together and find happiness. This story was a great combination of romance and action as there's plenty of both to keep things interesting. I had issues putting the book down because there was always something happening that made me not want to stop reading. The series storyline progressed nicely in this book and I can't wait to see what happens next. I'd recommend this book. 2 thumbs up. :D
