Slave to Sensation (Psy-Changeling #1)
THE HOT NEW NAME IN PARANORMAL ROMANCE.
Nalini Singh dives 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 would be to sentence herself to the horror of "rehabi...more
A short conversation between me and my conscience-
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?
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!
Huh.Fine, just do not forget that...more
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...more
WOW! WOW! WOW! 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...more

To ice-cold lips,
The skimming touch,
Sensations, too much;
The brushing thigh,
The softest whispers,
Sends primal shivers;
Barely leashed control,
Of a fractured soul,
The heat of skin,
Burst flames within;
The ragged breath,
Who thought such bliss,
In just one kiss?
Now, his changeling touch, she craves,
What I expected:
1. Lust at first sight leading to lots of sexy times that magically develop into love overnight.
2. A boring plot.
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...more
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 . I decided I definitely wasn't going to read something like that.
I was VERY, very, very, very stupid.
The story very much remindes me of the movie "Equilibrium", in which the hero l...more
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...more
If you think that Luke is “yours”, you have another thing coming.
If your name is Joanna, you’ll be pleased to note our friendship isn’t over. Also, your level of crazy far exceeds mine if you have a thing for Enrique.
If your name is FREEBIRD, you may have to choose weapons and seconds to...more
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 Du...more
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.
I have read many mixed opinions. Mainly discrepancie...more
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...more
Much was really good, but it was also very complicated at times. Are not sure I really understood how this Psy society and their remarkable abilities work. Worth thinking about for a while. Liked the shifter parts so much more. Who can resist a big black panther? Not this dreamer!
Perhaps could this novel be classified as a intersection between science fiction and a paranormal shifter romance with a lot of very good and creeping...more
I'm not going to give a run down on the story because other reviewers have already done this, but what I will say is that I hadn't read a Changeling/Shifter book (other than Twilight) before this...more
However, I was drawn in first by...more

Anyway, this book was truly an explosive and engaging introduction to a series. In my opinion, it was as close to perfect as it could get. The only tiny problem I found was the rather slow start and buildup to it. But it’s understandable, it...more
The plot and the world-building were wonderfully structured and its enticing characters appealed to me every step of the way.
I've adored Lucas and Sascha's story. Sascha is one strong and fi...more

Why did I wait so long to read this book?! It has been waiting on my shelf for a while. I am so glad that I have picked it up; it was one of the best new (to me) paranormal romances I have read in a while.
It is set in the future where the human races have branched out into 3 distinct peoples, the powerful Psy, Changelings, and normal Humans. The Psy have tried to get rid of all emotions through a programme called Silence that started generations ago, they have enhanced psychic abilities...more
Set in the 2070s in San Francisco, "Slave to Sensation" is a little far-out/sci-fi (which is not my normal genre), but not so much so that it is distracting or hard to follow. I took a long time to decide to read this series - in part, I'll confess, because the font on the cover looks like something from my third grade "create a book" project (sorry, it's true!). After hearing so many rave reviews, t...more
After I read Angels' Blood and Archangel's Kiss, that make me fallin in love with Guild Hunter,I decided to read another Nalini Singh series, PSY-Changeling. I want to know if this series as good as Guild Hunter.
So, after my second read,I must admit that I feel, "WOW!!" with the plot, world building and background in this series. Set in the future, PSY-Changeling remind me of In Death series by J.D. Robb, but of course its different :D (Got that J.D. Robb...more
The world that’s created is well-done and so are the different “kinds of people” who live in it. You can really feel the cold futuristic Psy world compared to the nature loving/emo...more
Nja, nja, nja, I'm so happy! Loved it now! I guess the sci-fi stuff was the reason I didn't love it so much before (sci-fi was the last thing I would've taken to read back then, but took a chance on this one). But now, it didn't bother me at all. Actually, it was quite fascinating..
06/22/2013: Years after I read this, I'm starting it all over again. I didn't like it so much then, but I think I might now that I'm so into pnr. The first two chapters are very much promising! Me likey the...more

She didn't try to tell him that he wasn't God, that he couldn't protect everyone. He knew that.
But knowing and believing were two different things. What she did say succeeded in stopping his heart. "I wish you'd love me."
Because then maybe you could protect me, too" Haunting sorrow whispered through her tone.”
