SILVER SILENCE is both book 17 in the Psy-Changling
series and also book 1 in the new Psy-Changling
series by the unbelievable Nalini Singh. The last book,
book 16, a midway wrap-up sort of book that revisited the
characters of the first arc of the Psy Changling world.
Now we embark on the next adventure, what Singh is
calling "Season 2" of her fabulous paranormal romance
world. This Psy-Changling world contains humans struggling
to keep up with the paranormal beings around them, animal
shapeshifters who live in loyal and hardworking packs, and
Psy individuals with unbelievable psychic powers. The world
Singh has built is so incredibly lush and captivating, and
I'm sucked in by every book.
Silver Merchant is a Psy and heir to the Merchant
family's ruler, her grandmother Ena. Silver has been
working tirelessly as the leader of a psychic network
called EmNet that coordinates rescue and relief efforts
around the globe in response to natural disasters. But an
attempted assassination by a traitor in her family
necessitates Silver's retreat to the local Moscow Stonewater
bear clan until the killer can be rooted out.
Valentin Nikolaev is the oh-so-dishy alpha of the Stonewater
clan. Valentin has been pursing Silver for months, and he's
not about to turn her away when the opportunity arises to
protect her and woo her in his territory all in one fell
swoop. Knowing her psychic issues that put her at psychic
and physical risk, Silver is reluctant to mate and bond with
Valentin. But Valentin is determined to make her his own.
SILVER SILENCE is a lovely story of determined courtship
and blooming love. While it lacks the flashy flair of some
previous Singh stories, the down-to-earth growing love
between Silver and Valentin is deeply satisfying to me. I
adore Valentin's abiding respect and honor of Silver's
wishes. His determination to do what is best for Silver,
despite his own desires, is incredibly moving. This is
what true love is all about. Both Silver and Valentine and
incredibly honorable peoples, and I respect each of them
greatly. I love watching the interplay between cool and
controlled Silver and Valentin's playful, boisterous
character. Singh's SILVER SILENCE joins the rest of the
Psy Changling series firmly on my keeper shelf.
