Publisher's Summary

Since the moment of her defection from the PsyNet and into the SnowDancer wolf pack, Sienna Lauren has had one weakness: Hawke. Alpha and dangerous, he compels her to madness. Hawke is used to walking alone, having lost the woman who would've been his mate long ago. But Sienna fascinates the primal heart of him, even as he tells himself she is far too young to handle the wild fury of the wolf. Then Sienna changes the rules - and suddenly, there is no more distance, only the most intimate of battles between two people who were never meant to meet.

Yet as they strip away each other's secrets in a storm of raw emotion, they must also ready themselves for a far more vicious fight. A deadly enemy is out to destroy SnowDancer, striking at everything they hold dear, but it is Sienna's darkest secret that may yet savage the pack that is her home---and the alpha who is its heartbeat.

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

    "Kiss Of Snow was GRRReat!!!!"

    WOW!!! Hawke and Sienna's book was GRRRreat!!! That is one big,BAD,hunky wolf!!!(and a cute little Psy). I have always loved Nalini's books and just know a copy of one format or another, be it paperback, hardcover and now Audio, will automatically find it's way into my shopping cart somewhere on the World Wide Web! This Psy-Changeling series has had me enthralled since the first chapter of the first book. When I first read the back of Slave To Sensation,it reminded me (sort of) of the movie Equilibrium staring Christian Bale(one of my favorite movies), with the no emotion thing. I find the Psy world very interesting, but no touching?? PLEASE......I couldn't live like that, so can I live with either the SnowDancer or DarkRiver pack? I don't care which one, just give me those skin privileges!!! Anyway...I love that Hawke and Sienna finally get their book. Sienna sure did grow up on us, and in a good way.I can hardly wait to see where Nalini takes the series from here.

    Since this is a review for the audio format...I think that Angela Dawe has settled into the books. By that I mean that in the first book she read of this series, she sounded a little stiff and read a bit too fast. Now she, in my opinion, seems to understand the characters more and, for me, the book flows better than the first 2. It is my understanding that books 3-9 will be coming out on audio in the very near future and also read by Angela Dawe. I hope she does as good of a job with those as she has with Kiss Of Snow.

    Final thoughts: The Psy-Changeling series is a MUST for paranormal romance fans. However.....start with book 1 and read them in order (the ones in the anthologies don't effect the storyline in the full novels, so you can skip those, but who would want to?)

    Wonderful job Nalini. I wish you could make it to South Florida sometime. I would live to meet you in person!!!

    Story
    "Hawke & Sienna BURN up the story ~ I couldn't stop"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! The characters truly come ALIVE in this audio book ~ it's an amazing romance, and actually what you'd call a June/December romance. I adored how Hawke fought himself for Sienna until she was old enough ~ and how mature she was for such a young woman. But not only was the romance amazing, the back story of the war that is breaking out w/ the Psy and Changelings is so fascinating, and engrossing. And while we meet so many supporting players in Nalini Singh's books, she never overwhelms you w/ them, gives you time to get to know them, and makes me want MORE before I've even listened to the last word. Oh, and the mystery of who the 'Ghost' is compels me to go back and reread and relisten to every book for clues!


    What other book might you compare Kiss of Snow to and why?

    The entire series is fabulous, but as far as the actual romance I'd have to say book 1, Luc and Sasha's story ~ the Alpha's are unique, and the fact that they've both chosen to mate w/ Psy so plays into the overall story arc of the series.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    This book was filled with them ~ but though it was wrenching, when Hawke pretty much lays it out there for Sienna that though they'll belong to one another, he can never give her the mating bond...and she has to choose if she can accept that.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were MANY ~ and it's hard to say my fav w/out giving spoilers, but Ms. Singh had broken me down, and was so sad because I thought something wasn't going to happen ~ and when it did, it was so fast and slipped in on us I was thrilled!! I LOVED the way she played it!


    Any additional comments?

    There is a secondary romance in this one, that of Sienna's older brother Walker, and the healer Lana. You'd think you'd feel cheated getting their story slipped into another, but it was great, and I felt like we actually got to know them and what they faced both as individuals and as a couple ~ I was thrilled for them.

    Angela Dawe is always an amazing narrator!

    I enjoy reading series and very rarely read stand alone series. I mostly read romance and sci-fi & fantasy.

    "The best so far"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would. This is the best of the series. Nalini Singh has out done herself. It was full of suspense and love. It had me biting my nails and roaring with laughter at parts. You got to see a new side of all the main characters and how the previous matted pairs act outside their own story. Very good.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kiss of Snow?

    Towards the end when Hawk realized that he might loose Sienna. And he chose to not to let her go.


    Have you listened to any of Angela Dawe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I'm in love with her. She is probably one of the best Narrators I have ever listened to. I have listened to all of the books in the series. And she always rises to my expectations.

    "Strong Characters, interesting story"
    What made the experience of listening to Kiss of Snow the most enjoyable?

    Angela Dawe is an excellent narrator. She brings the strong characters to life. I love the world that Nalini Singh has created and the tension created by the Psi race. The author asks interesting questions.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kiss of Snow?

    When Hawke admits at the end that Sienna was right about their relationship. I like that he chose to answer her in such a way as to strengthen their bond.


    What does Angela Dawe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Angela is excellent a portraying strong men who have a tender side and a good sense of humor. I would miss the humor if I just read the book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I loved the secondary love story with Walker and Laura. I hurt for Walker and how he viewed himself as less. I love watching the psi characters heal.

    "My Fav out of the whole series"
    If you could sum up Kiss of Snow in three words, what would they be?

    I LOVE SIENNA


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love Sienna blooming into a woman and determind to get her man at all cost.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Hawk finally giving into his wolf to claim Sienna


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    The series is kind of long and some books I would have just cut out completely because it seem to have little bearings in the complete series....I disliked Blaze of Memory and Bonds of Justice the most. I give high marks for the creativity of the world the author creates however, you kind of get the sense you are reading the same story over again but with a new lead man and a new lead woman. It's kinda redundant. I feel Kiss of Snow is the only one I would probably listen to over again.

    "Really good addition to the series. :D"

    4-4.5 stars

    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

    "Holy smokes this was good!"
    What made the experience of listening to Kiss of Snow the most enjoyable?

    By now (book 10) there is so much going on and I appreciate Ms Singh kept it all going. I also liked that this was mostly about Hawk and Sienna, but found myself getting completely caught up in Lara & Walker's story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Even though I'd been waiting since like, book 3 or whatever for the Sienna/Hawk drama to go down, I was blindsided by the quiet Lara and Walker story, and almost wished it had been more about them (thank goodness the Wild Invitation short stories are out on Audio, one of which focusing on these two). Not that all of the dominant ladies aren't fun to read about, but I am SUCH a sucker for subtle love stories. Still waters run deep and all that.


    Any additional comments?

    Ms Singh really kicks it into high gear with this book. There is some serious action and some serious romance. She really laid it all out and I think it paid off. I am SO glad I decided to download the first book in this series. Assuming the end of the series doesn't fall flat on its face, I bet this will be a perennial favorite for me. (For reference, my other fav Paranormal Romance series is Immortals After Dark. They are not really similar outside of being in the same genre, but both have that certain something that sets them above the rest, IMHO.)
