More About the Author

Nalini Singh was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. She spent three years living and working in Japan, and travelling around Asia before returning to New Zealand now - although she's always plotting new trips.

She has worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher, not necessarily in that order. Some people might call that inconsistency, but she calls it grist for the writer's mill.

To contact Nalini, please visit her website, or email her at nalinisinghwritesATgmailDOTcom.

5.0 out of 5 stars Psy/Changeling World Shattering 7 Jun 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
At its heart, this book is essentially a two-hander between Kaleb Krychek and Sahara Nightstar. Having said that, this is the book where the Psy/Changeling world changes.
The arc and threads that have been built up by Nalini Singh are beautifully brought together - and Nalini Singh does not drop the ball, or short change her readership.
Questions are answered - some as just a throwaway line, others as a breathtaking shocker.
The last few books have been very Changeling-centric, so it's a lovely change to be very firmly in Psy territory - where the Psy world is about to change beyond recognition.
Are there plotholes - well, perhaps. But I don't read romance to nitpick, I read it to be entertained - And I certainly was !
I'm so looking forward to the next development in the Psy/Changeling Universe - Roll on Aden/Vasic/Alice and Xavier - I can't wait.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read 2 July 2013
By Phantom
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As tired and overused as this phrase may be in reviews, I don't think I can avoid using it -I really enjoyed this book.

if you're new to the series, you should definitely begin at the start with Slave to Sensation. As romance novels go, these are pretty good, the titles are what you'd expect, the characters are usually very intelligent and make intelligent, adult decisions. The books are easy to read in that respect. I've never found myself cringing at any passages or rolling my eyes in disgust as I have with some novels.

But if you set aside the romance, the actual plot lines of the books are what really grab me. The thought and the imagination behind it all, the subtle political machinations in the background, the way the world is slowly changing. The difference between the experienced minds carefully chipping away at the chaos and the newcomers bludgeoning away at it.

I must admit, by and large I don't read these books for the romance any more. It's not that I don't enjoy it, because I do. I love the characters and I loved this pair in particular -I've always had a soft spot for characters who have slightly more ambiguous motives. But I am more intrigued by what shifts are coming. Who will come to power. Even at the end of this story, where titanic shifts have happened, I cannot see a clear or easy resolution. And so I will keep reading...

5.0 out of 5 stars Straight to the Heart 9 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a huge fan of Nalini Singh's works, and to date I have read everything this talented lady has written...Her latest Psy/Changeling series is Heart of Obsidian, which is Kaleb's book.

The Psy/Changeling world is set in an alternate universe and have 3 major players, they are the Changeling packs who are animal shape shifters, such as Leopards and wolves (who are the main characters of her books), then you have the Humans, who are ordinary, and finally you have the Psy who are human, but have extraordinary powers like telepathy, telekinesis and so much more, but in order to survive they have to link minds with each other creating the Psynet...and for the last 100 years, they have chosen to go 'Silent' in other words cut out those pesky human emotions like empathy, love, jealousy, kindness and sexual relations. But by doing this, flaws are starting to show, whereby some Psy are in pain, having to hide the fact that their silence is broken, while others, become mad and experience psychotic behaviour...If These individuals are discovered they have been brain wiped in the past.

In this book we learn more about the Psy world, and get an in depth almost exclusive take from a psy perspective (only touching on the Changeling characters either in passing, or towards the end of the book)and this book has come at a perfect time, with the story Arc having been built up throughout the rest of the series, and with the emergence of the Deadly Pure Psy movement, who will stop at nothing to make the Psy race the top dog, and the biggest threat, and that includes terrorism against their own kind dealing with their detractors, and those that oppose their ideals, and they don't care who is caught in the cross fire.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! what a story 15 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nalini Singh has created a brilliant tale for Kaleb and Sahara, It was a tremendous storyline from both points of view. He always seemed almost irredeemable, a man of such focused ambition, who appeared cruel and calculating in the extreme. His childhood experiences were disturbing to read about. Being the protégée of Councillor Enrique Santana created a man of incredible strengths with what appeared to be a core of pure steel, cold and lacking any appearance of real humanity, and yet over the series, he was certainly a contender for the role of The Ghost. So who was he really? His redemption came via Sahara, and over the course of the book Nalini took us back to how they first met, the bond that formed, the horrors that both survived and Kaleb's persistent and dogged search for her.
Sahara's experiences too, were horrendous, she survives by burying her true spirit, her essence, deep deep in her psyche where no one can reach. Her recovery made interesting reading, and the developing relationship between the two was really well written, with lots of surprises along the way.
All in all a brilliant read. Looking forward to the next story, which appears to be about Vasic. Can't wait!.
