En una sociedad donde el poder está en manos de quienes niegan las emociones, aceptar el afecto, los sentimientos y el amor puede ser devastador. Los psi gobiernan el mundo. Lo han conseguido a un alto precio: suprimir todo aquello que les hacía humanos para convertirse en una raza fríamente perfecta. Sascha Duncan, sin embargo, percibe emociones que apenas logra controlar ...more

This is a romance novel. If you're unfamiliar with the romance formula then I'm about to spoil every single romance novel ever:

They all end on a deliriously happy note with an abundance of perfection.

So whilst I won't discuss the actual end to this book, I don't think I really will be spoiling everything if I discuss the TYPE of end this book has and why it means that I just wasn't really meant for the romance genre.

There was a lot to enjoy about this book. For starters, considering it is billed

I honestly don't know what to say about this book that hasn't already been said numerous times other than it's easily become my FAVORITE paranormal romance thus far. There wasn't a single thing about this story that I didn't absolutely and completely love.

I won't go into detail about the plot, the characters, or the writing; there are plenty of fantastic reviews already written that fully express my feelings, thoughts, and sentiments about th

Oh God.Stop reading Visions of Heat for a second.Shouldn't you be writing a review for this book, instead of starting with the next one immediately?

All right!!!

Readers, this is one of the best PNR I have ever read.Excellent writing.Excellent characters.And a world in which you'll lose yourself.If there is anyone who has not yet read it, please do it ASAP!

This book goes to one of the best pnr's I've ever read. The writing is phenomenal, so great that I knew just with the first book that I'll be reading all the others :)

I first heard of this series a few months ago, and my reaction was like this: O.o Psychic people devoid of emotions and shape-shifters as couples Photobucket . I decided I definitely wasn't going to read something like that.
I was VERY, very, very, very stupid. Photobucket Photobucket

The story very much remindes me of the movie "Equilibrium", in which the hero l

So... I've heard a lot of good things about this series and since I'm already a big fan of this author's Guild Hunter series, I knew there would come a time to read this series. BUT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, WHY DID NOBODY TELL ME IT WAS THIS FREAKING GOOD SOONER!!! It's what I've been waiting my whole life for! And now I've finally found it! Thank you, Nalini! THANK YOU!!!

There are various reasons that I can’t rate this book fairly. You see, there’s too much riding on it. Friendships might be broken, chocolate could be withheld, fisticuffs might ensue. So instead I’ll say this:

A buddy read with the Paranormal Romance friends at BB&B!

The world is divided. It is populated by Psy and Changelings, and human races, all different in their ways of life, mores and codes, things they hold dear. We learn nothing about the humans here, unfortunately. The Psy have been bread out of emotions, which are considered as weaknesses and flaws, a hurdle keeping them away from perfection. The Psy hold power by "linking" into a network of all Psy individual minds, feeding

5 Stars!!! Fantastic! What took me so long to read this?!?!

Out of all the paranormal creatures, shifters are my favorite, and Slave to Sensation, captured the true nature of these sexy human/beasts!!! RAWRRRRR!! The merging of the unfeeling, emotionless citizens of the Psy community, and the touchy feely, possessive Changeling pack members, made for a very sensual, fascinating, and extremely gratifying read. Amazing world building, memorable characters...that got under my skin, terrific dialogu
4 -5 stars – Paranormal Romance

Since I’m a little late jumping on the Psy-Changeling series fan bandwagon, there probably isn’t much to add that hasn’t already been said about this fantastic series. Slave to Sensation is a fabulous debut that sets the foundation for the war between the emotionless, cold, psychically powerful Psy race and the Changelings in the year 2079.

In a world where the Psy have enforced a mandatory code of Silence that denies and prohibits all emotion, Psy member Sascha Dun

I'm not usually a fan of romance and I'm pretty new to PNR so I didn't really know what to expect from this book. I've had the whole series on my Kindle for some time but wasn't planning on reading it until Sarah and Angela ganged up on me. Ah, good old peer pressure never fails! So I decided to give the series a try despite the cheesy titles and ridiculous book covers. Well, I have to say, thank you so much ladies because this was fun!

I expected silly romance but what did I get? Complex, well t

Well I think the Psy's are jerks. Except for Sascha and a few others!

Anyway, Psy's are made to feel no emotion, void, nothing, zip, zilch. But . . . Sascha has feelings and if they find out she is "broken" they will rehabilitate her or kill her. REALLY?

Because I'm broken. And the Psy don't allow borken creatures to live.

The Changelings are the shifters and they are cool and then there are humans but they don't take on a big role in the book.

Boy, I am so glad that I had read one of Nalini Singh's Silhouette Desire novels, and was searching for some more paranormal romances to read and finally picked this one up by her. I kicked myself for having waited so long. I loved this book. Lucas is to die for. He's totally yum. I loved the combination of paranormal with science fiction. I typically find science fiction a little bit dry at times, since I am more of a fantasy person. But there is a perfect mix of science fiction and paranormal ...more

4.5 Holy Hot Shifters stars!

Slave to Sensation is the first book in Nalini Singh’s wildly popular Psy-Changling series. This world she’s created is exciting, passionate, poignant… it’s like none I’ve ever read before.

Dive into a world torn apart by a powerful race with phenomenal powers of the mind—and none of the heart…

In a world that denies emotions, where the ruling Psy punish any sign of desire, Sascha Duncan must conceal the feelings that brand her as flawed. To reveal them woul

This is gonna be short because I have the whole series to re-read to get to the last one.

Why I love this book

1) Lucas is HOT! As an Alpha he is possessive, protective, domineering, caring. All that in just the right measure to be hot and not overbearing.

2) Sascha is so brave. I can't even imagine how hard it must be growing up with secrets that will get you killed when you know that your mind is intimatelly connected to those you're keeping your secrets from.

*Buddy read with Sarah. You can read her review here.*

What I expected:
1. Lust at first sight leading to lots of sexy times that magically develop into love overnight.
2. A boring plot.
3. A lickable likable yet cliched hero.
4. A nice but entirely forgettable heroine.
5. A hundred eyeroll-worthy and puke-inducing moments.

What I got:
1. A beautiful romance that slowly develops (emphasis on slowly) into true love on the basis of friendship, understanding, communication, respect, and a healthy dose o
There's just not any other book more worth of a re-read than this one! I'm not kidding. OMG, I mean, I had loved it the first time I read it but nothing close as the way I felt about it this second time.

I just couldn't put it down, and every time I checked my clock I was so sure only an hour had passed but so much more had... *blushing, seriously, I completely lost track of time. But what ...more
Ok, trash trash trash. And this cover is utterly awful, someone get the Barbie Hookah out of there, the pink smoke kills me! But actually, I really enjoyed this book. This is WAY more romance oriented than I usually read, but I was interested in the characters, the world was interesting with the Psy aspect, sci-fi angle something new (Vulcanish perhaps). Whatever, I read it in one sitting, satistfyingly indulgent! I might read another in the series. Maybe.

It's somewhat mind-boggling to me that I have not reviewed this series here because this is one of my all time favorites. So this review is WAY overdue. I'll review this book and then give you a brief overview of my view on the series, which is something like fourteen books now and I'm still not bored.

Fourteen books. Still not bored. Yes, you read that correctly.


First off, like other reviewers have said, ignore the cheesy US cover. It makes this book look like a typical paranormal romance (not t

To be completely honest, I was only going to give 4.5 stars to this one but that was before I read the two short stories, “The Cannibal Princess” and “The Shower”. I think Nalini should have included these short stories at the end of Slave to Sensation, as a part of the epilogue or something, because I found the ending of the book a bit too abrupt and I was a little disappointed. But I've read the two short stories right after Slave to Sensation and, for me, it was still Lucas and Sascha's story

How Singh can write such complex storylines and characters with such ease and fluidity is beyond me.

First off, I want to talk about her amazing worldbuilding in this series. It’s only the first book but my god, there is so much depth and complexity to the world that Singh has built! Set well into the future, Singh has created a world were humans live among Psy and Changelings.

Out of the two new races, I must say my favourite has to be the Changelings. There is the DarkRiver panther pack and th

I won an unabridged copy of Slave to Sensation over at the All About Romance Blog (thanks!) and “read” it for Lea’s Audiobook column.

I have to say I was expecting a super fantastic read. This is a series that seems to be a favorite of many of my goodreads (and real life) friends but I’m afraid it didn’t quite live up to the amazin

Let`s clear this out. I'm really not into PNR genre.. the blood sucking business is a difficult world for me to engage.Shifters are another realm entirely for me to even begin to grasp.. So when i kept reading the premise of the series i was not very enthusiastic, but i wanted to give it a chance non the less because my very good friends kept throwing the rec my way.

Result = Thoroughly amazed in so many levels for so many reasons.

This book receives so many rave reviews that I guess I was just expecting a bit of something more. In fact, I was fully convinced before I started that I would probably give this book a 4 star rating, it just shows that I should stop making predictions - I'm usually wrong. I will say that I liked it enough to take a curious look into the rest of the series, it's not as if they're particularly difficult to read so I don't mind as much suffering through them.

The thing about this novel was that I

I can probably count with one hand the paranormal books I've read since I learned how to read. To say that I'm not much of a fan of the genre is an understatement. But in keeping with a promise I made to myself to step out of my comfort zone this year, I finally picked this series up. Guess what? I am so, so glad I've decided to start this series.

This is one of those books that nearly loses me because of a very bad cover. The cover is violently pink and purple with a bad title font and a cheesy-looking guy staring seductively out. Urgh.

When you read a lot of pnr/uf you need something that stands out of the mass otherwise you think that you are reading the same things. Finding something as exceptional, unique and remarkable as what I read with a Slave to Sensation is rare.
