In 2006, Nalini Singh introduced the beguiling and sensual Psy-Changeling world in Slave to Sensation, which spawned a series that has had readers and critics cheering. Throughout the incredible 11-book run there has been one question that has tantalized Nalini's legion of fans. Now, in the eagerly awaited 12th book in the series, Nalini Singh finally reveals the answer to the biggest Psy-Changeling mystery - an answer so surprising we wouldn't dare spoil it. Even if we knew.

How do I begin a review on such a heart wrenching emotional story? I am not even sure. Kaleb & Sahara’s story has been building for years & years. Books & books. We have know for a long time that Kaleb has been searching for someone. But it was not until Hawke’s book Kiss of Snow that we learned who. But even then we didn’t know who Sahara was to Kaleb. But once Kaleb finds her he will never let her go again. No one in the world will take Sahara away from him again, not even Sahara herself will keep them apart.
Thankfully Sahara has no desire to leave Kaleb ever. Even if she can’t truly remember who and what he is to her.
Heart of Obsidian was a very emotional story as I said above. But I think that it was so much more emotional not necessarily for the love story (which was very emotional) but for the simple fact of watching Kaleb grow and learn what love truly is. I am very much looking forward to the next book which is Vasic’s story (this arrow needs a whole lot of love), but also to see what the future has in store for Kaleb & Sahara.
As always Angela does an amazing job of bring Nalini’s world alive for me. I love how she is able to make each character so different from the next and so real. So thank you to Ms. Singh for another amazing story and thank you to Ms. Dawe for reading this story for me.
On to Vasic.
I purchased this book from Audible and this review is my own opinion and not a paid review.
I love this book and all the books in the series.. Some are a little slower than others but I still love the books. They are all full of playful flirting, strong women, and hot romance.
She is great at adding emotions to each character and she does a great job.
Love to Read!! Everything
Yes...and I have. It ties so much together....and is such a heartbreaking beautiful story.
Where she finally knows who and what she is and what Kaleb is to her.
When you realize he never gave up looking for her.
Great story...but you need to listen/read the whole series to understand how important this book is.
Would I ever! This is the first book that I have ever pre-ordered and it was worth it. The story of the Ghost was breath taking learning about his life. Wasn't surprised about his identity I had kind of guessed it in Kiss of Snow. I'm glad to be proven correct.
Jace: Shadow Wranglers; Both heroines were strong they were able to survive the abuse and come out intact. The men were stout hearted and did not stop looking for them.
The rediscovering of the relationship of the two protagonists. The story makes hope and declares struggling to overcome deep emotional hurts and abuse is rewarding. The sexuality describe develops a tantric quality.
I really like the technic of describing one scene from the view points of the two participants. It brings out character and describes motivation. Nalini used this technic once on one scene, so it does not lengthen the story or makes the repeat boring.
Audible addicted love mystery,lately stuck on love story. Mother of 1 Labrador and 1 perfect man. Work way too hard, and so ready to be retired
Hit the mark, again there were times I just wanted to fast forward but it kept me interested.
I need to re listen to the series.
The pace of the story
Heart of Obsidian for it was critical to the story
First time listening to PNR in Audio.
Silence to anyone rating this book lower than 4 stars for it must be one of the best books published this year! I am smitten and in awe. Loved every minute of it!
I read a lot and currently was feeling down because I just could not find one I liked a lot. I was starting to think it was me. Nope, because here comes Nalini Singh, a literally genius, who despite all of the popularity of contemporaries, gifted me with an a outstanding PNR series.
I'm not writing a full review. Just wanted to talk about the pace of this book. It was like a dance: sometimes furiously fast, than slow and seductive. Listening to this audio book was experiencing art in tune. It was beautiful.
Narrator: Angela Starling
Multiple POV and complicated characters were well handeled with voice changes. Sometimes other characters did sound like elderly sick but I think it was a challenging book to narrate. Well done.
This had to be the best yet. But did anyone else miss hearing Angela say "predatory male changling" a thousand times? When it was said half way through the book I melted thinking about all those predatory male changlings.
Wow! What twists and turns. This is definitely my favorite yet.
She is just amazing with this series. LOVE listening to her voice.Her inflections and voices are amazing.
I loved this book far more than I had expected. How Nalini Singh was able to take a character so unlikeable and untrustworthy and turn him into an amazing hero is a testament to her talent. What I really liked is how she didn’t use the typical angst or games to bring these two together. I knew early on they belonged together and was excited to see it all evolve.
The heroine was rescued by the hero after years of torture and he painstakingly brought her back to life and sanity. As he did the story of their past was revealed and how it had irrevocably shaped him. While his image of their future and the future of the world at times seems harsh, you quickly learn that his every decision in life was/is determined by his love for her. Her character was equally compelling. Her Psy conditioning was fractured which allowed her to feel things from an early age. This ability allowed her to reach out and touch the lives of those who desperately needed love and care. That gift brought them together in the past and will keep them together in the future. At the beginning I was worried she would be a weak character, but in the end she was the strongest character.
The rest of the story was fantastic as well. All the characters from the past came together to save lives and save their collective futures. You always knew the changelings had a future due to their love and loyalty, but it was hard to imagine how the Psy future could be a positive one. I think with the changes revealed in this book the Psy future has the potential to be better than it ever had a chance of before. I can’t wait to see where Nalini takes this series. Initially I thought I would stop at this book, but there’s no chance of that happening now.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
A little slow to start up, but it picks up after a while. This book is about Kaleb Krychek and Sahara from the Nightstar clan, it drove me nuts that it didn't tell in the summary. I missed the changelings in this story. It refers to them but they didn't show up till almost half way through. As usual this book delivers just like the others. This wasn't my favorite in the series but it was far from the worst and a lot of loose ends are cleared up nicely. The Psy-Changling series is an automatic download for me, although I am not a fan of the Angel series. Do not start out with this one if you are a new comer, these books need to be read in order.
