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, emotionless... at 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.
Mind over matter: listen to more in the Psy-Changeling series.

"One of the greatest pleasures of these books is their ability to deliver both an intensely personal love story as well as a riveting societal drama. Singh is on the fast track to becoming a genre giant!" (Romantic Times)
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
Another great Psy-Changeling book by Nalini Singh!! How does she do it?? The series just keeps getting better and better.
Definitely a credit worthy listen!
Dorian and Ashaya were a perfect match in every way! If you're looking for a great paranormal romance series, look no further! This series has the perfect balance of a created paranormal world with the right amount romance (and steamy scenes).
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.
Alright so this book is yummy. Hot alpha-type Dorian (let's face it, if you've made it this far, all the guys are alphas) goes after Ashaya, and you know from the moment you hear "This is Audible" that these two are going to hook up at some point mid-book. This series is formulaic, yes, but that's the point, right? Would you rather her stop at one or two books? When you say "I want more of that!" then this is what you get. Some of the same things.
Yet I will say this for Singh - overall her books do progress with a major storyline that stretches all the way to book 11 and beyond. If anything, stick with it to the next book because Book 6 is my second favorite (to book 3).
I enjoy reading series and very rarely read stand alone series. I mostly read romance and sci-fi & fantasy.
When Ashaya went to her son's aid. It proved to everyone who had doubted her that she did in deed love her son and would do anything for him.
When Ashaya cut her link to the psy-net and accepted the matting bond. She had complete trust in her mate to catch her and she would do anything to keep him by her side.
Yes and that is what I did do. It was one of those books that had me hooked form the moment I started. I couldn't put it down.
These books just keep getting better and better. Things are changing in the Psy-Changeling world. The passion and the love these characters display is what I love the most about them.
One of the best audiobooks that I have listened to.
Both Ashaya and Dorian!
Yes, the first book in the Psy-changeling series was just as good!
Yes totally! I wish I had time though
Brings the story to life. Great for listening pleasure.
the characters are brought to life with this audiobook.
expressions of the characters, and annunciation of words
I love listening to books that keep me and my true love together even if we 600 miles apart until we are back together again fir good this!!
This book will leave you wanting more you can't stop and this one or the next or next... I can't stop.. I listen to it to sleep in the car... Every where
The narrator does a really good job
I couldn't pick just one I've enjoyed the whole book
She did such a good job i enjoyed all of them
Each book in this series just keeps getting better
Great series!!!! This is my favorite series. Each book builds on the overall world while keeping you interested in the individual romances. A few of the book were about secondary characters that I didn’t care about at the beginning and absolutely loved by the end. This review applies to the first 9 books in the series.
