Summary

Separated from her son and forced to create a neural implant that will mean the effective enslavement of her psychically gifted race, Ashaya Aleine is the perfect Psy: cool, calm, emotionless...at least on the surface. Inside, she's fighting a desperate battle to save her son and escape the vicious cold of the PsyNet. Yet when escape comes, it leads not to safety but to the lethal danger of a sniper's embrace.

DarkRiver sniper Dorian Christensen lost his sister to a Psy killer. Though he lacks the changeling ability to shift into animal form, his leopard lives within. And that leopard's rage at the brutal loss is a clawing darkness that hungers for vengeance. Falling for a Psy has never been on Dorian's agenda. But charged with protecting Ashaya and her son, he discovers that passion has a way of changing the rules....

Shingles

After absolutely loving book three, enjoying book four and taking two steps forward with this series I was looking forward to Dorian and Ashaya’s book. Unfortunately this book had me taking two steps, and two stars, back. I liked Dorian in the previous book but found he grated on me in this book. He was either angry, snarling or having a pity party the entire book. We were told by the heroine and supporting cast on many occasions that Dorian was intelligent and charming, but simply having characters state that doesn’t make it so. He did nothing to show intelligence or charm. In fact had I been Ashaya I’d of run screaming from him. He gave me whiplash with his mood swings. Once he told Ashaya he didn’t care if silence fell and the psy died or were harmed as a result. A few chapters before he fell apart when finding a dying psy family and had the psy traveler agree to avenge them. The one part at the end I was interested in, Dorian finally becoming whole, lasted a total of six minutes!! We had longer than that listening to the, “encrypted personal files of Ashaya Aleine,” that were inserted into practically every chapter. This was another thing that annoyed me. Ashaya was a good character and I quite liked her, but the way the narrator reads the psy women’s voices sets every one of my nerves on edge. She reads them as if they’re simpering, meek idiots. Plus I was treated to hearing her voice Sascha and Faith the same way, as they appeared a lot in this book. Not to mention I had to listen to Lucas call Sascha, “kitten” several times. AGAIN!, I thought that was over after the first book, but no. Hearing that term and having to listen to the narrator voice the psy females got on my nerves so badly that I honestly feel I have shingles. The story was ok, but there was no romance. Talking about sex, or having sex, isn’t romance in my opinion. The author has also brought the human alliance into the story. That’s fine, but the only people she’s portraying as good at the moment are the changelings. I hope that changes in the remaining books. I’m going to have to re listen to book number three before I carry on with this series else I would stop now. Please God let there be no more psy female main characters with this narrator. My ears are still bleeding!!

Loved it!

This is my favourite so far, I loved this storyline in the psy-changeling world. I loved all the excerpts from letters and journals, something different for this series and an added an aspect of insight and almost concern as to why...is it all past tense from someone that's gone!? I loved the no nonsense aspect of Dorian wanting to bed Shia even while he hated her, none of the B.S. pretence of that not being there and I loved how many different enemies this book gave me to worry about, where was the danger going to come from?! Awesome.
