Publisher's Summary

Control. Precision. Family. These are the principles that drive Silver Mercant. At a time when the fledgling Trinity Accord seeks to unite a divided world, with Silver playing a crucial role as director of a worldwide emergency response network, wildness and chaos are the last things she needs in her life. But that's exactly what Valentin Nikolaev, alpha of the StoneWater Bears, brings with him.

Valentin has never met a more fascinating woman. Though Silver is ruled by Silence - her mind clear of all emotion - Valentin senses a whisper of fire around her. That's what keeps him climbing apartment buildings to be near her. But when a shadow assassin almost succeeds in poisoning Silver, the stakes become deadly serious...and Silver finds herself in the heart of a powerful bear clan. Her would-be assassin has no idea what their poison has unleashed.

Amazing, moving

Just wonderful and as fine a book as any she has written. Great world building, fully developed characters. Continues the full worldwide story while starting in a new location. I am so pleased at the quality, intrigue and love story that is moving, not just an add on filler.

Why only 3 stars you ask?

I adore the Psy Changling world. Mrs. Singh is freaking brilliant, but I have to say I was a bit disappointed with this newest release. The romance was wonderful, the characters flawless, but for the first time the big dramatic "thing" had no purpose. Sasha wasn't breaking free, no one was cutting the psy net away, no forseers predicting doomsday, no arm issues, not even Caleb inside the middle of a fire. The big "thing" served no purpose other than to cause *gulp* manufactured drama for the sake of some more pages.

Maybe Mrs Singh has just spoiled me with her wonderful stories of psy and guild hunters, maybe I expected too much. It's still a wonderful series with spectacular worlds and characters, but this time, I was let down. Silver got mated and somehow that was 16 hours worth???

Loved it!!

Just a good story of how love can overcome silence. There were so many facets of this story that made it so very good.

Trinity Triumph!

Nalini brings again with a strong beginning to a new era in the Psy/Changeling world. although I was prepared to be disappointed in bears as a changeling species, I was happily proven quite wrong and find myself wishing I could meet one. She keeps the story rolling as you fall in love with the characters. I'm impatient for the next book!

Love Nalini Singh no matter what book she writes!

I absolutely loved this book! Silver was such an amazing character. I loved how her mate had to make Silver fall in love with him all over again. Nalini is an amazing writer, and I would recommend ANY of her books to anyone.

So glad I listened to the Audio book first!

Loved hearing Russian spoken, and followed the story much more smoothly, than if I had decided to read it first. Just loved the story and characters so much.

Romance with just enough humor

I’ve enjoyed all her books in the pay changling series. There’s plenty of time given to let the relationship grow, natural honor. There are sex scenes but not the focus of the plot. Some audio of romance books is just too graphic for me. This was just right.

Super exciting and sexy!

From the beginning Silver & her alpha bear were so interesting. Their courtship was amazingly hot. I did get a little tired of hearing so many Russian accents, even thou they were done very well. Grandmother Mercant was very interesting as well. Can’t wait for the next one.

SyFy! Romance! And a Fight for Unity!

I am a serious syfy addict, but also a die-hard romantic and this book gives me both as well as action, drama, multiple storylines, and a plot to keep the world's cultures divided. Score! After listening to this, and the narration is on point, I discovered that its the first in its series, but 16th in the overall. I am so looking forward to the rest now. This may be as good a reason as any to sign up for the unlimited romance package.
