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. You can learn more by visiting www.nalinisingh.com or by following @NaliniSingh on twitter.

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 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 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 Psy-Changeling book 12 23 Nov. 2014
By Sarah (Feeling Fictional) TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I don't think I even have the words to say how much I loved Heart of Obsidian, it's definitely a new favourite book from this series and it went up against some serious competition to win that spot. I have been fascinated with Kaleb since we first met him, the seemingly cold councillor has always left me with the impression that there is a molten core underneath that icy exterior but I couldn't even have begun to guess how much I would come to love him as I read this book.

Kaleb grew up in hell, raised by a monster and trained from a young age to ignore any kind of pain or suffering. He is an incredibly powerful Cardinal who clawed his way onto the Council and was determined to do anything to take complete control of the Psy-Net. Now his goal is in sight but there is a rot that is spreading through the net, one that could destroy the Psy if it isn't stopped. Kaleb is the only one who is capable of saving the net but there is only one reason for him to save the Psy and that is the woman who was stolen from him and hidden seven years ago. Kaleb has spent years searching for Sahara and she is finally within his reach but she has spent those missing years suffering the worst kind of torture and there may not be much of her mind left to save.

I don't really want to say too much more and risk spoiling the story to anyone who hasn't read this book yet. Don't let the lack of words fool you though, this really is the best book in the series and it took me on a complete emotional roller coaster. Kaleb and Sahara have a history that goes back to their childhood but it's a history of shared pain and suffering. They have both been through terrible things but have become even stronger because of that and I loved every minute of their journey.
