In his position as Tracker for the SnowDancer pack, Drew Kincaid must rein in rogue Changelings who've lost control of their animal halves - even if it means killing those who've gone too far. But nothing in his life has prepared him for the battle he must now wage - to win the heart of a woman who makes his body ignite... and who threatens to enslave his wolf.
Mind over matter: listen to more in the Psy-Changeling series.

"Compelling characters and wonderfully dense plotting are two reasons why Singh's books continue to enthrall. There is no finer storyteller around!" (Romantic Times)
I wasn't sure I was going to like this one. The dominant females get on my nerves. I finally liked Mercy in book 6 but it took a while. I was nervous that Indigo would never win me over.
It did take a while for me to like her. A strong character, she's a great lieutenant for Snow Dancer pack but she can be mean. She dismissed Drew from a possible lover because of his age and his less dominance in the pack hierarchy. Her own family experience had taught her such pairing would never work. And it took a lot to get her to consider she was wrong.
Drew is comfortable in his own skin. The pack tracker and more importantly the eyes and ears of the alpha, charming Drew is used to getting what he wants. And what he wants is Indigo. I totally fell for Drew. He doesn't try to change who he is to better appeal to Indigo, instead he uses his strengths and patience to convince her to give them a shot.
All the while these two are dancing around each other, there is someone threatening the Snow Dancers. As Hawke deals with the problems, favorites from previous books join the story. Judd from book 3 continues to be a favorite of mine and his magic TK skills show up in this one. The overarching story continues as the Psy counsel goes through some dramatic changes. And I continue to be obsessed with this series.
I enjoyed this one so much. Drew is the biggest reason. And as he struggled, I hurt for him. To me, that's a sign of a great author - involving my emotions. Not only was I hurting and scared for him at times but his dominant passion was fanning my own flames. This series is always HOT.
Love this world. Love the writing. Love the characters. Love the series.
Still obsessed and itching for more.
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.
Okay so Indigo is only 4 years older than Andrew, but in her opinion you'd think that gap was wider. So this book has that younger-man-seeks-older-woman tone throughout, including the playfulness of the young male hot for teacher.
This one is one of my favorites, ranking in the upper half of the series. Indigo is a lot like Mercy (from book 6) in that she's a lone female in the upper ranks and has no male in sight. Andrew is a laid-back tracker outside the ranking system and that has Indigo completely confused, especially since she trained him once upon a time. Finally, a book where the guy isn't all stalker and has a more playful attitude. Get it now.
NUMBER OF HEARTS: 4 1/2
Andrew Kincaid is a man on a mission. The target Indigo Riviere the hard headed, uber strong, and damn sexy SnowDancer Lieutenant. The only problem with this mission is that Drew has messed up the first attack so badly that there may not be any recovering from it.
But Mr. Kincaid is one of the most stubborn men there is and with his eye on the prize he will not let anything or anyone stand in his way. Not even Indigo herself.
Indigo, man this girl made me love her and hate her all in the span of one chapter. I wanted to hug her, kicker, and slap her upside the head so many times in this book. But in the end I just loved her stubborn mule-headedness. Drew on the other hand is so fun lovin that he makes your heart smile. I guess that is why these two are so good.
So, so, so in love with this series. I do have a bone to pick with Ms. Singh. Why must you write stories that are so beyond awesome and make me fall in love with each character so much? So much so that I cry while listening to this book. Let me tell you I sure get some funny looks from other drivers when I am cry or laughing my butt off listening :) Thank you Ms. Singh for being so freakin amazing!!! Thank you to Angela for being one of my favorite narrators!!!
On to the next one!!!! Finally made to to Hawke’s story!!!
I purchased the story from Audible.com. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.
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.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Nalini Singh does it again, Her Psy-changling world is quite creative. I will be sad when I have to wait longer to get them since she only has two more out that I haven't read.
Say something about yourself!
I was soooo happy to get back tot he changelings, particularly the Snow Dancer Wolf Pack...that Hawk drives me crazy, but this was the story of Drew and Indigo. Drew is the young guy in the Den but he has an important job...well several important jobs. He wants Indigo, Hawk right hand lady, and frankly she thinks of him as a young and inexperienced pup....except he has a body to die for, no wait, he's Riley's little brother and no way is she touching someone she helped train....or is she.
Great addition, wonderful playfulness, really liked this one!

This was a great book, but also a little bit disappointing. Indigo is one of my favorite characters, her strength as being a dominant female I expected there to be a little bit more excitement and danger added into this book. As far as the romance goes Nalini Singh still has that going. I love the Psy - Changeling series I feel sometimes that the authors just hit a blank wall and lose a little bit of their creativity when they run a series that goes on forever. Nalini has this way to keep you interested and can't wait to listen to the next book.
There was a lot of good stuff in this book, but for whatever reason, the scene where Drew goes cray cray on Mathias during the mating dance was just so hot to me. Guess I like it when men go all territorial.
Absolutely! This series started off strong by presenting good love stories in an interesting world. By now (book 9) I'm totally into the goings on as much as (and sometimes) even more than the romance. Unlike the 2 previous books where the focus was more on action than romance, this installment hit all the right notes, giving a good balance of action and "action." I also appreciated that neither of these characters had major personality roadblocks, but more...normal...hangups that I could sympathize with more than I have the last few books. It also helped that we had known these characters before this book, so less time was need to build up their personalities.
I can't believe I'm already done with book 9. I'm waist-deep in this shizz and loving every minute of it!!
I really enjoyed this book and again the over reaching story arc makes it all the better.The characters are really well done and the plots interlink well between books. The narrator does a very nice job. You have to read this series in order.
I enjoy reading series and very rarely read stand alone series. I mostly read romance and sci-fi & fantasy.
Yes I would. Even though the story line got me mad at times and i wanted to shake some sense into Indigo. It was still a good read.
That Drew never gave up on what he wanted and he fought for it.
Andrew. He reminds me of my own brother and she portrayed him very well.
