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. Everything good in him died the day he was told that she, too, was dead.

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.

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

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

    "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.

    "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

    "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!

    "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.

    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Sooo disappointing"
    Would you try another book from Nalini Singh and/or Angela Dawe?

    Maybe. I got the 3 previous books and felt that each book became less and less enjoyable. This book was my "last chance" to save the series for me... but it was awful. It's almost like each book follows pretty much the same storyline... distressed woman, forbidden love, hero, true love forever... it has gotten pretty sickening.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I am not sure.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    N/A


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Mine to Possess?

    I hated the scenes that, in my opinion, were abusive


    Any additional comments?

    I am soo disappointed. I really loved the first book... the concept and the idea of the psy-changeling world was such an exciting idea... but unfortunately, this is just a redundant love story being rewritten over and over.

    I'm a grad student with very little time to edit reviews because I'm editing research papers. Audible helps me with my book addiction.

    "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.

    "Very hard to get through the whole thing"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Less redundant writing and less over the top adjectives.


    If you’ve listened to books by Nalini Singh before, how does this one compare?

    I've read the books prior to this. This was the worst.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Very bland.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Mine to Possess?

    No one scene sticks out. Either good or bad.


    Any additional comments?

    The thing about this series, is that the storyline is great, and has a lot of potential. I always am excited to follow the general plot. However, the interaction between the main characters in this book was painful for me. I really struggled to get through this book. Took me 3-4 times as long as normal. I think the issue was a) too much filler material and b)repetitive and overuse of over the top descriptors. Like 'cat' or 'leopard' thrown into every sentence where it didn't need to be. Or the description of emotion was over the top for the scene until it just felt super corny to me.
