4.5 Stars? Aaahhh... Make it 5! ^_^
“Tell a child something often enough and she starts to believe it.” ~ Sascha to Faith*sigh* I LOVED this book even more the second time around!!
While my re-read of Slave to Sensation had me dreaming (again!) about being enslaved by the delicious Lucas Hunter *grins*... it more seriously had me contemplating the concept of a “society without emotion” that is the Psy. In my re-read of Visions of Heat, the theme that bec
4 1/2 Stars for the Voracious Vaughn! Unbelievably sensual, passionate, irrefutable character chemistry, yet the story isn’t overloaded with descriptive sexual details. The writing is near orgasmic and Nalini Singh knows how to make her readers feel as much as the characters in her books! I found myself reading with my mouth slightly parted, and I might have even been panting!! How embarrassing!!
Not quite as captivating as the first book, bogged down in a little too much detail, where the overa...more
★★★★✩ I liked this one, the second in the Psy-Changeling series; but not as much as the first. Don’t get me wrong; four stars are impressive. And I LOVE this author’s “voice”. I’m almost tempted to bump it up to 4½ stars. However, I had to put it down for a couple days. The “darkness” – or The Über Creep – that was plaguing Faith was a little too dark for me right now. Maybe I’ll listen to this on audio in about a year and I’ll love it. There were a couple other th...more
This book in the Psy-Changeling series focuses on the Senital Vaughn, a Changeling whose Jaguar lives closer to the surface then most, and Faith Nightstar an F-Psy, which is a Psy that can forecast the future. Faith only forecasts about business and commerce all other events being surpressed by the Silence protocol, murder and death, fear and anger are not allowed by the Psy. But recently she has...more
If Vaughn was a Tree: I would climb him and make a nest.
A Medium Size Pool: I would do laps all day long.
A Bath Tub: I would soak all day.
If Vaughn was naked, I would be naked too.
I am happy that I enjoyed the second book in the Psy-Changeling series; I was having some doubts after the first one where it took some time to really get into the story. I was in love in love from the moment the very sexy Sentinel named Vaughn mentioned his first words in the book.
Faith and Vaughns story was passionate altho' not as much so as Sascha and Lucas. Faith has been protected by the Psy because of her rare powers of predic...more
Visions of Heat is a fantastic second book that goes further into the escalating conflict between the emotionless, cold, psychically powerful Psy race and the Changelings (shifters that are both human and animal) in the year 2079.
Faith Nightstar is a powerful F-Psy, a foreseer, who has been completely isolated due to the dangerous power and strain of her potent psychic ability and used for the monetary gain of the Psy-Council. But lately she’s been tormented by distu...more
In regards to this authors aforementioned talent...Vaughn D'Angelo is just devine I must say. I loved the constant tension, and...more
This is just an amazing series and every instalment is so much worth of anybody's time. It has such a terrific plot and an original world building that you never get enough, always crave for mo...more
This series is turning into a FANTASTIC find I could not put this one down Vaughn and Faith were so so so Good, I loved how we get to see every one from the first book again..
The Psy/Challenging series is one i am going to continue to the end!!
Re Read July 2011 Still LOVED it!!!
The second instalment of the Psy-changeling series by Nalini Singh was a good read although I have to confess that the first volume was more enticing than this one, even if it is by a mere half star.
Actually in terms of quality of the plot and world-building I've got nothing to point out. I'm truly captivated by this alternative reality and I'm excited to read more about it. The general plot was equally good and it also caught my undivided attention. In fact I couldn't stop reading the...more
It´s great how the author manages to continue the background story and builds the Psy world at the same time she develops the story of two new characters.
I really liked how the relationship between Vaughn and Faith evolves. They have a rough start, Vaughn feels too much all the time and Faith believes she´s broken due to the fact that she´s able to feel something forbidden for her race. He´s the renegade bad boy every "good girl" tends to fall for. He is lonely, ful...more
While Vaughn did not disappoint in his "alpha male" ways, Visions of Heat landed somewhere between 3.5 and 4 stars. Went a head and gave it 4 because I'm trying to be less stingy when handing out stars. ;)

I adore Vaughn! Of the Pack, his animal side prowls at the surface of his mind more than the others. As a jaguar, he has this wild possessiveness and dark sensuality that makes him stand out of the Pack. I definitely wouldn’t mind finding him crawling through my sunroof! I adored his all-or-nothing a...more
The novel centres on Faith Nightstar, an F-Psy who is being exploited for her accurate visions of the future. Her visions cause her to be so sensitive she has had very minimal contact with other people and is overwhelmed by the sensation of...more
Vaughn is a jaguar living among leopards. His past isn't very pretty and he is more animal than man. So when he is drawn to Faith, a F-psy, the attraction is incomprehensible, but that doesn't stop him. Faith's powers are drawing into something that scares her to the point that she is willing to ask the help of the...more
"Sleep, Red. I've got you."
Faith belongs to one of the most powerful PsyClan. She’s the most talented cardinal F-Psy of her generation. Before Silence, the F-Psys predictions affected all life areas (be it minor or major), but since the implementation of the protocol, the F-Psys talent has been strictly confined to the economics sphere. So when Faith starts to have visions of murders, she thinks that she is slowly sinking into madness.
Her designation has a high rate of madness. Already monitore...more
ReRead: April 4, 2011
Vaughn and Faith aren't my favorite Psy/Changeling Couple. While Faith is a very interesting character, both because of her mental ability to foresee future events, as the fact that sh's a very powerful Psy statuswise - the story itself never reaches its full potential.
Vaughn is supposed to be this wild animal, but I don't get the same feeling with him as for example with Hawk, who also lives with his animal close to the surface.
The world is...more

The hero, Vaughn, is damaged from his past and his animal is seriously close to the surface at all times. The heroine, Faith, is a F-Psy (foreseeing) that has been sheltered all of her life - and by sheltered, I mean, locked up in a house by herself under constant monitoring due to her being the best F-Psy o...more
Used to cold silence, Faith NightStar is suddenly being tormented by dark visions of blood and murder. A bad sign for anyone, but worse for Faith, an F-Psy with the highly sought after ability to predict the future. Then the visions show her something even more dangerous—aching need...exquisite pleasure. But so powerful is her sight, so fragile the state of her mind, that the very emotions she yearns to embrace could be the end of her.
Changeling Vaughn D'Angelo can take the form of either man...more
In Visions, Singh has developed her vision of the future, and she has the perfect tool: a character deeply entrenched in the world and workings of the cold, mentally gifted Psy. Whereas the first novel's protagonist, Sascha, lived on the fringes of her community as a "defective" Psy, Faith is a highly valued and carefully...more
F-Psy is the designation given to those Psy who foresee the future. Before Silence, F-Psys died at an alarming rate. They could get lost in their visions and forget to eat and sometimes to even breathe and often went insane at very early ages. Under Silence, their visions of death, destruction and violence were suppressed and re-channeled to forecast business and trends.
Faith Nightstar is the most powerful F-Psy living. She lives a very protecte...more
I'm not in love with the series yet. It is not bad, but I'm not stolen by the fantasy world. This book followed a similar format to the last. Please see my review of "Slave to Sensation" for my comments on both books.
Faith NightStar est une C-Psi, une cardinale avec un don de clairvoyance. Comme tous les Psi, elle a subit le protocole Silence, anéantissant toute émotion. Cependant, ses visions commencent à se détraquer. Spécialisée dans les prédictions commerciales, elle commence à avoir des cauchemars et des visions de meurtres. Faith a entendu parler de Sascha Duncan, qui s'est déconnectée du Psi Net et qui vit avec la meute de Dark River. Elle décide de s'échapper t...more
Vaughn D’Angelo, a jaguar adopted into the leopard pack, he is a sentinel of DarkRiver. He like to leave in his own lair. He alone type hero, strong, loyal, dangerous and sexy.
Faith Nighstar, is a powerful “F-Psy” – a cardinal Psy with the ability of foresight. Since the age of 3, she has been isolated from society and trained to give business forecasts, worth billions. The F-Psy are particularly susceptible to madness so Faith is regularly check-up, and i think she like pris...more

Breath a whisper, she came closer and tied one wrist to the headboard. The cat growled but didn't try to make him wrench free.
"Because just looking at you gives me the most extreme pleasure I've ever felt."
"Christ, baby, tie me up before you start talking like that.”
