Publisher's Summary

Since the moment of her defection from the PsyNet and into the SnowDancer wolf pack, Sienna Lauren has had one weakness: Hawke. Alpha and dangerous, he compels her to madness. Hawke is used to walking alone, having lost the woman who would've been his mate long ago. But Sienna fascinates the primal heart of him, even as he tells himself she is far too young to handle the wild fury of the wolf. Then Sienna changes the rules - and suddenly, there is no more distance, only the most intimate of battles between two people who were never meant to meet.

Yet as they strip away each other's secrets in a storm of raw emotion, they must also ready themselves for a far more vicious fight. A deadly enemy is out to destroy SnowDancer, striking at everything they hold dear, but it is Sienna's darkest secret that may yet savage the pack that is her home---and the alpha who is its heartbeat.

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

Kiss Of Snow was GRRReat!!!!

WOW!!! Hawke and Sienna's book was GRRRreat!!! That is one big,BAD,hunky wolf!!!(and a cute little Psy). I have always loved Nalini's books and just know a copy of one format or another, be it paperback, hardcover and now Audio, will automatically find it's way into my shopping cart somewhere on the World Wide Web! This Psy-Changeling series has had me enthralled since the first chapter of the first book. When I first read the back of Slave To Sensation,it reminded me (sort of) of the movie Equilibrium staring Christian Bale(one of my favorite movies), with the no emotion thing. I find the Psy world very interesting, but no touching?? PLEASE......I couldn't live like that, so can I live with either the SnowDancer or DarkRiver pack? I don't care which one, just give me those skin privileges!!! Anyway...I love that Hawke and Sienna finally get their book. Sienna sure did grow up on us, and in a good way.I can hardly wait to see where Nalini takes the series from here.

Since this is a review for the audio format...I think that Angela Dawe has settled into the books. By that I mean that in the first book she read of this series, she sounded a little stiff and read a bit too fast. Now she, in my opinion, seems to understand the characters more and, for me, the book flows better than the first 2. It is my understanding that books 3-9 will be coming out on audio in the very near future and also read by Angela Dawe. I hope she does as good of a job with those as she has with Kiss Of Snow.

Final thoughts: The Psy-Changeling series is a MUST for paranormal romance fans. However.....start with book 1 and read them in order (the ones in the anthologies don't effect the storyline in the full novels, so you can skip those, but who would want to?)

Wonderful job Nalini. I wish you could make it to South Florida sometime. I would live to meet you in person!!!

And here's the story you've all been waiting for

Congratulations! You've made it to Book 10 in Nalini Singh's pay-changeling series, and as a reward, here is not one but two love stories. This one has been brewing since book 1 and has had plenty of time to stew. Now to taste.

Hawk is the Wolf Changeling Alpha. Sienna is a deadly X psy struggling with her ability. The've been arguing since day one so we all knew this was coming. Sienna can't help that she hates her crush, and Hawk thinks she's a kid since she's so much younger than he is. It's all just so explosive.

Walker and Lara get a nice little side story in this as well, finally acting on a few things we saw in the last book. Now if Books 4, 7, and 8 had been given this treatment, the series would be much stronger. Bravo. Listen now!

Hawke & Sienna BURN up the story ~ I couldn't stop

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes! The characters truly come ALIVE in this audio book ~ it's an amazing romance, and actually what you'd call a June/December romance. I adored how Hawke fought himself for Sienna until she was old enough ~ and how mature she was for such a young woman. But not only was the romance amazing, the back story of the war that is breaking out w/ the Psy and Changelings is so fascinating, and engrossing. And while we meet so many supporting players in Nalini Singh's books, she never overwhelms you w/ them, gives you time to get to know them, and makes me want MORE before I've even listened to the last word. Oh, and the mystery of who the 'Ghost' is compels me to go back and reread and relisten to every book for clues!

What other book might you compare Kiss of Snow to and why?

The entire series is fabulous, but as far as the actual romance I'd have to say book 1, Luc and Sasha's story ~ the Alpha's are unique, and the fact that they've both chosen to mate w/ Psy so plays into the overall story arc of the series.

Which scene was your favorite?

This book was filled with them ~ but though it was wrenching, when Hawke pretty much lays it out there for Sienna that though they'll belong to one another, he can never give her the mating bond...and she has to choose if she can accept that.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were MANY ~ and it's hard to say my fav w/out giving spoilers, but Ms. Singh had broken me down, and was so sad because I thought something wasn't going to happen ~ and when it did, it was so fast and slipped in on us I was thrilled!! I LOVED the way she played it!

Any additional comments?

There is a secondary romance in this one, that of Sienna's older brother Walker, and the healer Lana. You'd think you'd feel cheated getting their story slipped into another, but it was great, and I felt like we actually got to know them and what they faced both as individuals and as a couple ~ I was thrilled for them.

Angela Dawe is always an amazing narrator!

Loved it, loved it, loved it!

Would you consider the audio edition of Kiss of Snow to be better than the print version?

I didn't read the print version, so I have no way of knowing, but the narrator did her usual spectacular job. Each character had a distinct voice, and none were grating, whiny or overdone.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Kiss of Snow?

Oh geeze, I have to pick? There's no way. I loved the scene when Hawke and Sienna are playing in the woods...delightful! I also loved the scene between Hawke and Judd--the one with the letter opener. Nalini is a master of saying so much in so few words. Then there are all the scenes between Lara and Walker...there's just no way to pick only one! This whole book was wonderful from beginning to end. I've read it 3 times already,, and foresee reading it again and again.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. I've been waiting for this book since reading book 3 of the series, and my reactions ran the emotional gammit. This one is raw and heartwarming, sad and joyful all at once.

I LOVED this BOOK!!

Ok, THIS is my favorite book of the SERIES!!

Hawke and Sienna OH my word… Their dance really is epic.
I loved the back and forth and I can’t blame Hawke for wanting to keep his distance even when his wolf knew better. But what Hawke doesn’t or wouldn’t realize is that Sienna isn’t and has never been a child. She is much wiser than any of them. She is constantly fighting with herself and knows her limits. She is a kick-butt kind of girl and she knew she wanted Hawke and knew he wouldn’t accept it so she took herself away. I think that right there showed more maturity than anything.

This book was not only about these two but about Walker and Lora the healer as well. I loved that we got a side story if you will. Because I wanted her to get her HEA too.

I was challenged to read this series and my friend said this when we were talking about this book that Sienna is like a superhero Psy and I couldn’t have said it better myself she really is. Is this why I love her and this story so much no but it sure was awesome to see her become the woman she was always meant to.

The narration was different. I listened to the Christmas story right before this one and I noticed something in that one and this one, Angela Dawe gave the male a male voice. She didn’t do that with the past books it did throw me off a little but once I again got used to it. It was all good.

FINALLY the Hawk and Sienna story!!!!

Oh these two have been driving me nuts from book one, and here we finally are at book 10 and we finally get to hear how their story goes.

When Sienna Loren Joined the Snowdancer pack she was 16, she was Silent, and she was Psy...not a great combination when her entire body felt pulled to the Alpha of the pack, Hawk. Hawk is a loner, hates the Psy with a fiery passion and was totally sickened to be drawn to this little girl...so he avoided her....for YEARS!!!

This is finally their story, and boy was it a GOOD ONE! Love the beginning, middle and end!

REVIEW:
This book had me busting up laughing, crying, and screaming NOOOOOO, so many times I loved it!!! Will after my anxiety levels came down a few notches. I was so excited to finally get to this book. Have been waiting for Hawke’s book since the moment that we met him in Slave to Sensation. My only gripe about this book was that there was not more Hawke & Sienna. While I loved the parts of Walker and Lara I wanted more of Sienna challenging Hawke. But even with that I loved this book.

Hawke & Sienna are so perfect for each other that it really did make the painful wait till book 10 for their story. I really hope that we get to see more of Hawke & Sienna in future books and what lays ahead for them.

Again Angela does an amazing job of bringing Nalini’s characters to life. I am truly in awe of the voices that this girl can do! They are all very different and distinct. Until the next book ladies (which I am starting today)!!!!

If you have not read any of the Psy-Changeling books. I really think that you need to start from the beginning. So much happens over the years to the Packs, the Council, the world that if you just picked up book 10 you may not get the full impact of the story line. So go get yourself a copy of Slave to Sensation, or do what I did and get it on audio. :) But read this series!!!

Not one of her best books

I have read/listened to a many of Ms. Singh's books but for some reason this one did not rate highly among them. The story was missing something. But I did enjoy the updates on characters from previous books.
