Brenna, a she-wolf Psy, was abducted by a serial killer - and returned a monster. The only person who can help her is Judd, a telekinetic and Council defector. But the passion burning between them could push them both over the edge of sanity in the third installment in Singh's breathtaking Psy-Changeling series.
Mind over matter: listen to more in the Psy-Changeling series.

"Mindblowing." (Romantic Times)
This love story was so intense that I got shivers. The need between the main characters was so thick and obvious and subtle and sweet and sexy and just everything. I could tell there was a connection before the characters realized it, but it was so subtle that I didn't feel like they were just being thrown together for no reason. Every scene was important. Nothing was wasted and that's what I love most about Nalini Singh's work. Her books are so well developed, and the characters are constantly evolving and growing together. In this one in particular. The main characters where so different that at first I was wondering how she would make it work, but midway through the book it was obvious that they were meant for one another. I've read all of the novels in this series so far and this one is by far my favorite.
I'm a grad student with very little time to edit reviews because I'm editing research papers. Forgive the typos. They're made with love.
I've listened to the many books of this series multiple times and I still believe this book is my absolute favorite. The plot is better, the characters are great, and there are just so many things to love. Read the other two books before this so you can READ THIS. NOW.
There's just something about a character that is mentally damaged by their race to have no emotion who suddenly has instincts overpower the brainwashing. Judd is such a strong silent warrior with a clear desire to be something other than he is, and Brenna brings out his humanity. I love it when he finally has a flameout and gets a few hours to do as he pleases before he has to return to the emotionless restraint.
Angela Dawe is the perfect voice for the non-human type. She can pull off scratchy deep voices of the male wolf changelings and sound utterly devoid of emotion like the psy. She's in her element with these novels.
I'm a grad student with little time to read fiction let alone write reviews (which is why mine are usually in need of a proofread - there's just no time), so I have used audible as a way to get my book fix. I listen while driving, while cleaning, eating, while getting ready, pretty much any time I can snag. I've returned to this series again and again because it is my absolute favorite on this site. LOVE IT.
Say something about yourself!
The cover art is misleading...this book is about a changling female...and a psy male.....it was yummy yummy yummy! It only got 4 stars for repetative phrases that started to irk me, but the story itself was still really good! It was also nice to be in the wolf pack...rather than the leopard pack...nice change of pace and dynamics since every pack is different.
Still heart warming, still thought provoking, this book was build up for what are many more to come! If you haven't started this series yet....what the heck is stoping you?
I enjoy reading series and very rarely read stand alone series. I mostly read romance and sci-fi & fantasy.
This is the first story where the main character is a psy male. It gives a different perspective to those who have defected from the net. Even though it was harder for him to break silence he did it for his mate.
When Judd didn't stand up for Brenna at the cabin and she was mad at him. He had no idea that he was suppose to support her no matter what. It goes to show that even in the future that men are still as clueless to women's needs as they are now a days.
It made me laugh. The fact that Judd didn't know how to react to Brenna and, Brenna's brother's reactions to Judd just had me rolling around laughing till my sides hurt.
I love this entire series and this one in particular. It has a great mix of romance (including steamy sex scenes) and action, just as all the books in the series do. The narrator does a really good job with this one. My only complaint about Nalini Singh is that she has the weirdest chapter breaks. Rather than stopping the chapter at the end of a scene, she does it right in the middle, for no reason I can discern. But that's minor.
The series continues and keeps getting better!!! Well worth the credit and if you haven't read any from Nalini Singh - take the leap, you won't be disappointed! I liked that although this one is still linked to the continuing battle with the psy counsel, you learned more about the different changeling packs. Jed and Brenna are both stubborn and when they finally give in to each other it definitely creates fireworks in the bedroom. Love it!! I beg that you keep adding the rest of this series!!!
