First off, let me say that I'm completely biased when it comes to Hawke, so don't expect this to be a sensible and impartial "review". ;)


Hawke alone deserves 5 stars, and I'll just be honest and say that I'd love this book even if the plot was utter crap - which it isn't, of course.

I became obsessed feel in love with Hawke the moment I met him in Slave to Sensation, the first book in the series:

Hawke was muscular and he was lethal. A predator to the core. His eyes were the same icy blue whether

6-1-11~I'm replacing my old review with this one, as promised, b/c this one contains spoilers for the book.

A little background…I picked up Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changling series on a whim back in 2006 with Slave to Sensation…and when I was finished with that book, I was immediately drawn to Hawke’s story and my fervent hope that eventually A) it’d get written soon and B) his HEA was Sienna Lauren who was 16 at the time. Each subsequent book after that I read hoping for bits and pieces of Hawke’s st


Oh, how I LOVED every single minute spent reading this story. It was everything, EVERYTHING I knew it would be, and MORE.

Holy shit this was good.

Because I had been lusting, pining, and rendered almost UN-functionable during the wait and build up for this books release.

So much so, in fact, that I was worried that my too high expectations would doom the book to failure.

But silly me, I should have known Nalini Singh would blow me away as usual.


Seriously, she is the alpha-PNR goddess.

Favorite Quote: “You sure you want to play with the wolf, baby?”

Favorite Quote #2: The crowd was chanting, “kiss, kiss, kiss” when Hawke walked inside.

That was when Sienna learned the meaning of the term alpha.

Favorite Quote #3: "Scared?" Hawke’s smile held no humor. "You should be baby." Then he kissed her and it was no tender exploration, no playful tease. This was the kiss of a man who knew precisely what he wanted.

5+ stars – Paranormal Romance

WOWZA! The most anticipated installment in the phenomenal Psy-Changeling series definitely delivers the goods and lives up to the hype. It’s an intense, passionate, and emotional epic romance with smoldering sensuality and thrilling action that is pure tribute to Hawke fanatics. It satisfied my super high expectations and then some. I was completely and utterly captivated by every word from beginning to end, and my only complaint is that I didn’t want it to be over.

Kiss of Snow is book #10 in Nalini Singh’s stunning the Psy-Changeling Series. I have been waiting for a very long time for Hawke’s story, every since he was introduced in Slave to Sensation, the 1st book in the Series. Somehow I had always hoped that he would get together with Sienna Lauren…..and yes, after 9 books, I finally got my wish.

A buddy read with Jo and Angela at BB&B.

A wonderful book about how the Psy X Sienna tamed the Wolf Alpha Hawke. We have been waiting and hoping for those two to eventually figure out they are made for each other for many, many books already! And we all knew it would be hard, painful, emotional, sexy as hell, sizzling, a battle of the sexes, memorable, and ooooo so satisfying once it arrived! Nalini did not disappoint:-) It was all of those things and much more!!! I couldn't get e

I've lost count how many times I've read this book. Of course it's my favorite in the series. It's Hawke! Hawke! HAWKE!!

I don't know why I've not reviewed this. Better late than never.

When I started to read the Psy-Changeling series, I knew it would become one of my favorites. It began with Lucas's story and that really captivated me. Hawke and Sienna were mentioned continuously as the series progressed. Seeing glimpses of them from time to time, in every book, the anticipation for their own boo
Unpopular opinion here!

I've been waiting to read this one for a long time now! And what I found is well... rather disappointing.
I was expecting a lot from Hawk. Or well, a lot more than this. Sienna wasn't too bad, but I still wanted more from her.

I really didn't feel any chemistry between them and their story was of no particular interest. I was more excited about the background plot than about their love thingie. It's the only reason I gave this story 2.5 stars (3 GR ones), because the ov
Unpopular opinion alert: after waiting forever for Hawke's book, this disappointed me.

actually, I never said I was sorry. Don't put words in my mouth, you lunatic!

Anyway, why didn't I like it?
First, there was a secondary love story going on between two of the possibly most boring beings on the planet. Their story was like watching paint dry. And, not the fun kind of watching paint dry. Plain white wall paint.

Secondly, it had a creepy feel to it, in a pedo-bear way.

Taking a long break between reading all the books in this series is highly advised. I was on a reading marathon and read only books in this series but after awhile (after 9 books or so) I didn't feel the 'special' and unique vibe that this stories bring. So I took a month-ish break from them and what would you know, now that I've picked up this series again, I get the hype around them and I'm so happy that I'm finally able to enjoy them as much as I did when I first started this series.

I have been waiting to read this book since the beginning of the series. I had to read 9 books before finally being able to get my hands on this baby and I do not regret it. At all.


Kiss of Snow was everything I wanted it to be. Everything. Hawke and Sienna were perfect for each other and their story was beautiful. Oh my god, did I swoon. Seriously, Hawke is so deliciously hot and so freaking dominant, I want one for myself. Sienna is one lucky lady! She's not too bad herself, I absol
One of the most anticipated books this year is Kiss of Snow (book #10) by Nalini Singh. Nalini has come a long way with her Psy-Changeling series. I can still remember the first time I picked up Slave to Sensation back in 2006, knowing I found an author I’d stick with for life. Nalini is an incredibly talented author, and if you’re not reading her books, you’re missing out on something special.

I read Kiss of Snow a few months ago and was on the fence whether or not I should review it. The reason

You have the power to tear me to pieces. To wound me so deep and true that I'll never recover.


Except I never had a prayer when it came to you. You’re in my every breath and every thought, intertwined so deep inside me that love’s not a strong enough word—you have my devotion, your name branded on my soul, my wolf yours to command. A hundred years? It’ll never be enough. I want eternity.

Ah, Hawke and Sienna’s book… It has been the most anticipated release of the series for me. All that tension between them and the curiosity of how they would end up together (with him already having had a mate) has made for a very long wait. While this book didn’t exactly rock my world the way I thought it would, it is still definitely worth the wait.

I really enjoyed Sienna in this book. She got tired of the games and she took a stand. She didn’t make unreasonable demands of Hawke, but she let h

I read this book Friday. Now it's Monday and I'm still an incoherent schmuck. I have been wrecked, y'all.
I want to read more books about Hawke and Sienna. I feel like their story could go on and on and never get old or boring. It makes me wish they had their own series like Elena and Raphael do in the Guild Hunter series :P

For all who worried about Sienna's character in this one, let me assure you, she rocks. She is strong, stubborn, feisty, wise, intelligent, fiercely loyal and she loves with

If I could, I would give it more then 5*. It was spectacular! One of the best books I have ever read(judging by the amount of crying I did :D).
Hawke and Siena are great characters and I loved their love story. (view spoiler)

god damn loved it!!! Einer der besten Teile in der Reihe, auch wenn die zweite Liebesgeschichte mit Lara u Walker nicht hätte sein müssen, oder das Happy End das etwas zu leicht/ unerklärlich passiert ist. Dennoch - Singh ist ein Genie!! <3

Meine Gedanken zum Buch:

I mean, this was a good romance book guys. I'd been waiting for the Hawke/Sienna pair-up for a while, and I just really enjoyed the dynamic between them, Hawke always reminded me of Robert Redford a bit in my mind so you know...good stuff.

The sub-plot between Walker and whatserface was OK (yeah I forgot her name so clearly had an impact haha), but the world plot with the Psy attacks and Ghost, that stuff stays interesting. That's why I like these books. They're TOTAL lady porn romance books, but

9/14/2016: Is it any wonder this is one of my favorite books? It keeps getting better and better with each re-read...I keep springing leaks. ;) Page 388 is always my downfall.

Sienna Lauren tumbled head over heels in love with Hawke, the SnowDancers alpha, at first sight. (Who wouldn't? Who didn't?) But she had two huge obstacles in front of her, one more (seemingly) insurmountable than the next.
One: He made her lose her cool, shattered her control. And she needed that steely control to suppress

“You sure you want to play with the wolf, baby?”
Her stomach somersaulted, but she was ready. “Sure you’re ready to handle an X, wolf?”

I feel as if I’ve been waiting forever for Hawke and Sienna’s book, watching them clashing wills in all the previous books, battling their feelings, and waiting for Sienna to get old enough, and FINALLY we have their book!! And it was everything I had hoped for and

Jo ★The Book Sloth★
This one is probably my favorite book in the series so far! I LOVE Hawke and Sienna, they are both so frustratingly stubborn and strong-headed. Then we also have Walker and Lara. I've read this book about 5 times and each and every one of them I was captivated.



Hawke and Sienna are an explosive combination. Hawke is the Alpha of the SnowDancer pack since he was only 15. Closer to his wolf than any other changeling he is almost civilised, almost human, almost hot. Ok, completely HOT!

Can someone please scrape me up off the floor?

Kiss of Snow is absolutely a tribute for the fans. Since Slave to Sensation I've been drooling over the luscious, uber-masculine, sigh worthy alpha of the Snowdancer wolf pack. You thought Lucas was yummy? You have no idea.

Sienna is now 19, a full adult but wise beyond her years, mature beyond anyone in her peer group because of what she's lived through. Because of what she is: a Psy. Hawke, alpha leader of the Changeling pack who took in the Lauren
