Publisher's Summary

Clay Bennett is a powerful DarkRiver sentinel, but he grew up in the slums with his human mother, never knowing his changeling father. As a young boy without the bonds of Pack, he tried to stifle his animal nature. He failed... and committed the most extreme act of violence, killing a man and losing his best friend, Talin, in the bloody aftermath.

Talin McKade barely survived a childhood drenched in bloodshed and terror. Now a new nightmare is stalking her life - the street children she works to protect are disappearing and turning up dead. Determined to keep them safe, she unlocks the darkest secret in her heart and returns to ask the help of the strongest man she knows....

Clay lost Talin once. He will not let her go again, his hunger to possess her, a clawing need born of the leopard within. As they race to save the innocent, Clay and Talin must face the violent truths of their past... or lose everything that ever mattered.

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

    Story
    "Not one of my favorites but, still good."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would if they are interested in the series. But not if they wanted to just read this book alone. It is a good as a stepping stone book. It is necessary for the series to continue but, not as a read only book. I thought the characters were written and described beautifully along with the clever wit but, i wasn't as impressed with the books as i was with the others.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I had a feeling that it would end the way it did. I just wish that there had been more build up to the ending but, it was a very good conclusion without the build up.


    Was Mine to Possess worth the listening time?

    I would have to say no. This is a book that you can come back to and not listen to all at once . It is a good but not so that you have to drop everything and listen to this alone.

    "Read the series, get thru this to get to the next"
    Would you try another book from Nalini Singh and/or Angela Dawe?

    Yes. I've tried them all. (Angela Dawe is best in this series, not so much in others). Nalini Singh is one of my favorite authors.


    Has Mine to Possess turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not really. It's just a stepping-stone sort of book. Others might like it, and for those reading the series for the first time, it's useful to the overall story but when I reread the series, I tend to skip it.


    Which character – as performed by Angela Dawe – was your favorite?

    She's given all of the characters their own individual voice, so I like that.


    Could you see Mine to Possess being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Nah... it'd be a small subplot in the series.


    Any additional comments?

    Power through - it's important info leading to much better stuff.

    Story
    "This is quickly becoming a favorite series"
    If you could sum up Mine to Possess in three words, what would they be?

    Broken-home leopard drama (sorry, guess that's 4 words)


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that the couple in focus in this story (Clay and Talin) have known each other before, and goes into the nuances of a relationship with past history. Given that in the previous stories that characters are relatively new to each other, I liked this new twist. Adding some heavy stuff to their past made it more difficult for them, but more enjoyable for the reader.


    What three words best describe Angela Dawe’s voice?

    Serviceable times three. As I have mentioned in previous reviews for this series, she is not my favorite, but also avoids being too breathy (think Xe Sands) or too hard (Arika Rapson) so I can't really complain. However, one thing that was not cool with this production were some very audible swallows and pauses while she transitioned from voice to voice, or going to the next page. Ultimately that's a production/ editing issue but it was super noticeable and got a little annoying when it happened frequently.


    Any additional comments?

    I LOVE LOVE LOVED book 3 in this series, so this was a tough sell for me. I definitely enjoyed it and thought it was admirable of Ms Singh to introduce a character from an abusive home, but I loved the Brenna-Judd story so much it was a hard act to follow. If you are wondering about the series in general it's awesome, and I expect to love some books more than others, so any lack of "wow" I might be expressing is just because this wasn't a personal favorite. Still a great installment - if you're on the fence about it just go for it. Totally worth a credit!

    "Changeling passion at its best!"

    Clay and Talin's story... WOW!! Nalini is positively an amazing author. Even though this wasn't a psy to changeling match, Nalini brings the human, psy and all the changeling worlds together throughout the book. The romance between Clay and Talin is hot and everything you hope for them!

    "Another great book by Nalini Singh"

    This is such a great series! I never feel like I've wasted a credit on any of these books. I suggest starting with the first but each can be read as a stand alone.

    Definitely worth a credit

    "Just a little too angsty for me"

    This was still a good book, but not as good as I'd have liked. There was a lot of back story between the two main characters that didn't really even get hinted at in previous books. So it felt like the getting to re-know you part was crammed in with a lot of back story.

    As always with these books, I love the world created and Nalini Singh does a great job with the general writing in the book. The narration remains unremarkable, but it doesn't detract from the story, so it works fine.

    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.

    "Not so good."

    This one in my opinion is the worst one of the series. But in order to get all the details with the background story for others, one must drudge through. It wasn't a complete loss, although I will never read it again.

    Story
    "LOVE this series"

    I was waiting for a human to be a central character in one of these books and this is the one. Loved it.

    Clay and Talin knew each other as children. Clay was living with his human mother and trying very hard to pretend he wasn't a leopard. Talin a human ophan living with others and was being abused. When Clay found out, his leopard took over.

    Clay has made me nervous in the first few books in this series. Such a loner and on the very edge of going rouge. But his experience with Talin is the reason. She was his from a very young age. And when she was gone, he hurt. His leopard hurt. He never got over it.

    When Talin unexpectedly shows back up in his life, it's a huge shock. These two have a strong relationship that started as children. But Talin just wants to stay friends. Clay has other ideas.

    As they struggle to help the missing children and deal with their feeling for each other lots of sparks and words flare. These two are very much like a married couple who knows all of the buttons to push. I must say, the BEST fight was when Clay shifted to his cat to avoid talking about something he didn't want to. It was perfect. Such a guy thing to do. Hehe.

    I loved the heat as Clay tried to convince Talin they were always supposed to be more. He's patient with her because she has so much pain and abuse in her past. Tender is the word I would use to describe how he treats her. And I never thought Clay and tender would be in the same sentence. I loved seeing this strong closed off male open up to the women he has always loved.

    The story in this world continues as Clay and Talin deal with one problem but it effects the overarching story. I love how this author introduces characters that are needed for the next book and how the story unfolds effortlessly. I'm always satisfied at the end of book but wanting more. That's a great skill for an author to have.

    If you haven't read this series and you love paranormal, then you need to get this one in the short line. I do think it could be read standalone because things are explained well BUT why? This whole series is so dang good.

    Don't miss this one.
