I wish I would have read the fact that this was a collection of short stories on different ppl in the series. I don't normally waste a credit on these type of books, although I love the series and will continue to buy the book, I'm not a short story fan.
NUMBER OF HEARTS: 5
As always Nalini writes stories that I don’t ever want to end. Then you had in the talented voice goddess Angela Dawe and I am Psy-Changeling heaven. It is no wonder that this is one of my most favorite series ever.
I loved these stories.
In Echo of Silence we get to follow Tazia and Stephan’s journey of falling in love during a trying time of the Psy race. Silence hasn’t fallen yet, but Tazia and Stephan can’t stop fate.
Dorian oh my goodness!!! Dorina’s story made me tear up more than once. Dorina has always been one of my favorite changeling characters so getting his back story made me and extremely happy girl.
Partners in Persuasion was such a cute story. I really enjoyed listening to Dezi and Feliz’s story. It was great to watch this couple struggle with wanting to be together and not knowing how to make it happen.
Flirtation of Fate I enjoyed Kenji and Garnet’s story. We have seen these two throughout the whole series so it was great to finally get to know them better. I enjoyed watching them work together to solve a murder.
Love this series. I can’t wait to see what Nalini has in store for us next!! And of course I will continue to listen to this series as long as Ms. Dawe is the narrator!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Netgalley & Berkley Publishing Group in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.
I always look forward to a Nalini Singh book because it never fails to engage my interest, just as this book has done. So far, I've had it for two days and have already listened to it twice.
I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything
Genre: Single-author collection
Four stories set in Singh's wonderful Psy-Changeling world.
Echo of Silence is about Tazia Nerif, a human engineer on the deep sea station Alaris, and the station commander, Stefan. Tazi was shunned by her family because she chose not to marry someone from her village, instead focusing on her career. Stefan suffered a trauma as a child, before he started his Silence Protocol training, so he is allowed to assist at disaster sites. He asks Tazia if she wants to help on one during shore leave, and one thing leads to another...
Dorian is more of vignette than story. It feels more of an outtake from the full-length novel in which he is the hero.
Partners in Persuasion is about Felix, a submissive wolf horticulturist and Desiree, a dominant wolf soldier. Although he finds Desiree attractive, Felix is shy and reluctant to open himself up to heartbreak with a dominant again. Desiree must come to terms that, even though she is attracted to him, her wolf may never be able to accept a submissive as a mate rather than just a plaything.
Flirtation of Fate is about Kenji and Garnet, members of the Snowdancer Wolf Pack. They had history, everyone expected that they would end up mated, but 7 years ago he stood her up for her 21st birthday party and suddenly started acting like a manwhore. They haven't spent much time together, but that changes after their Alpha's mating ceremony. Garnet wants to find out why Kenji seemed to have a major personality shift, and Kenji just wants to spend a little time with the woman he had felt compelled to give up.
All of these stories are good, with well-developed characters. But of the 4, I enjoyed Echo of Silence and Partners in Persuasion most. I enjoyed the characters, and the plot lines are excellent. They also seem more unique parts of the Pay-Changeling world. That may be because the first involves a human-psy pair, and the hero of the other is not a muscle-bound alpha type of guy. At any rate, I enjoyed the entire experience.
My name is Irene and I'm a lifelong bookaholic. A few years ago, I started adding audiobooks and I'm so happy I joined Audible in 2015 :-))
Yes, I love these individual novellas and the whole darn Psy/Changeling series! I'm also following Singh's Archangel & Rock Kiss series, too. I'm so glad she was able to give us Kenji & Garnet's story. They so needed to be together. I really hope Alexei comes to Nalini with his story soon;-))
they enjoyable short story and are good for fan who are established to. see about these other characters. it would not be a book to pick up out of the blue and starting this series because they wouldnt understand the world and characters we all have come to love. the stories are good n and good book to add to my library. I have all her books and am very rarely disappointed. I love the series.
