Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Nalini Singh dives beneath the surface of her Psy-Changeling world into a story of passionate devotion and selfless love.... 

Security specialist Bowen Knight has come back from the dead. But there's a ticking time bomb in his head: a chip implanted to block telepathic interference that could fail at any moment - taking his brain along with it. With no time to waste, he should be back on land helping the Human Alliance. Instead, he's at the bottom of the ocean, consumed with an enigmatic changeling.... 

Kaia Luna may have traded in science for being a chef, but she won't hide the facts of Bo's condition from him or herself. She's suffered too much loss in her life to fall prey to the dangerous charm of a human who is a dead man walking. And she carries a devastating secret that Bo could never imagine.... 

But when Kaia is taken by those who mean her deadly harm, all bets are off. Bo will do anything to get her back - even if it means striking a devil's bargain and giving up his mind to the enemy.

Read by Angela Dawe.

Another brilliant hit for Nalini Singh

This book, number two in the Psy-Changeling Trinity series is another success for this brilliant author.

This time we are in the world of the Sea Changelings - The Black Sea Coalition is a vast 'Pack' with many species under the same umbrella which is well described in Bowen Knight's meeting with the group.

I enjoyed every minute of this book and was close to tears on more than one occasion in the course of it.

What happened

I love Nalini Singh books and buy them as soon as they are published. This book therefore came as a shock. Nalini books are usually full of a very well thought out plot with many problems to solve. For me this book was one long listen about the development of attraction between Bowen and ( I can’t even remember her name). The story was a very small side line.
Sorry but not up tonNalini’s usual great standard.

Another great hit

This is yet again a fantastic book. Despite the length of the series the new direction has added an interesting dynamic. Unlike other long series each book is within the same style, feels like a full story but the subtle connection throughout the series keeps u interested. I’m so glad audible has finally got Nalini on offer.

totally awesome

it was soo good to listen to this book. i have all the other books in hard copy, but i have discovered that audio is much better. The narrator is really excellent and i must say honestly you couldnt of got anyone better to read this beautiful novel. i do really hope that there is going to be more of this in the series. The book had really great moments of laughter, and sadness, and just all round emotions that came out from this book, the narrator reallysaid it all in her telling voice.
Thank you so much for a wonderful story both written and narrated. 5+ star

Linking the world with words

Nalini Singh has written another “ go away leave me alone I’m listening to my book,can’t do anything until I finish story” Angela Dawes voice brings passion, linking between worlds .. I fall in love with each character and am kept guessing every time ... how do I survive ... I need more!!!

When is the next coming out??

Loved it. Well written, believable, great character development, and ( thank God! ) tastefully done intimate scenes.

First thought after finishing was " Noooo!!! When is the next coming? I want it now!!"

*Sigh* I almost wish Mrs Singh would just focus on this series...it's that good.

Beautiful addition to the PCT world!!

I cried. Multiple times.

There; I admitted it. I love that this world is so familiar and yet there’s so much more to explore thanks to us getting to explore BlackSea’s territory.

Bowen has always been a favourite of mine & I’m so damned glad that he & Kaia are so perfect for each other ❤️❤️❤️

More unearthed about the Consortium- and of course more questions raised! The cameos from some of my favourite terrestrial changelings & psy made it all the more enjoyable too!
