Summary

New York Times best-selling author Nalini Singh returns to a world devastated by change in her award-winning Psy-Changeling Trinity series, where two people defined by their aloneness hold the fate of the Psy in their hands....

Termed merciless by some, and a robotic sociopath by others, Payal Rao is the perfect Psy: cardinal telekinetic, CEO of a major conglomerate, beautiful - and emotionless.

For Canto Mercant, family and loyalty are everything. A cardinal telepath deemed 'imperfect' by his race due to a spinal injury, Canto cares for the opinions of very few - and ruthlessly protects those he claims as his own. Head of intel of the influential Mercant family, he prefers to remain a shadow in the Net, unknown and unseen. But Canto is also an Anchor, part of a secretive designation whose task it is to stabilise the PsyNet. Now that critical psychic network is dying, threatening to collapse and kill the entire Psy race with it.

To save those he loves, Canto needs the help of a woman bound to him by a dark past neither has been able to forget. A woman who is the most powerful Anchor of them all: Payal Rao. Neither is ready for the violent inferno about to ignite in the PsyNet...or the passionate madness that threatens to destroy them both.

Nalini did it again! Whoop whoop!

This is story of how two psy children who were thrust into a hell as children meet again as adults. They have both had different experiences since leaving a hellish environment constructed for psy children who were considered flawed. Loved this second meeting romance. Great characters and great storyline.

Fantastic

Loved this book. It’s made all the better by the appearance of the Stonewater bears who bring so much humour and love to the story.
I’m waiting with bated breath so see what happens next!

Another hit for Nalini Singh

Again Nalini bringes us into her universe and holds us there through the entire book. Angela Dawe is a master of voices and bringes the story of Payal and Canto to life.
Definitely one of the bedt books in the series to date. And that is saying something.
Thank you, Nalini.
