Im Feuer der Nacht (Psy-Changeling #4)
I was shocked at how much I LOVED this somewhat heartbreaking, humorous, endearing, and amazingly heartwarming story. This book's focus was about the main couple's complicated and enduring relationship rather than the world-building aspect of the over all story arc.
I won't lie, I struggled at first with the heroine and what seemed to be her weak behavior; however, once I realized why she reacted the way she did, I ended up her biggest...more
However, the writing itself was weaker than the others. Singh reused several phrases to the point were I actually laughed a couple of times. "His le...more
This is yet another terrific read and a beautiful romance in the intriguing Psy-Changeling universe and my second favorite of the series so far. I wondered if/how Singh could possibly top Caressed by Ice, and while that’s still my favorite, this one isn’t that far behind and the series just keeps getting better and better. The writing is superb, the characters are fascinating, well developed, and rich, the world building is captivating, and the romance is emotional, i...more
★★★★☆ (This is a review of the audiobook.) Sometimes I think listeners of audiobooks have a distinct advantage over readers of hardcopy. If they are well narrated and well directed, as this one is, they can bring to life what the author intended, as tone, inflection, and reaction between characters and how they dialogue is so vital. Such is the case in the fourth installment of Ms. Singh’s Psy-changeling series, which is read by Angela Dawe. She does an awesom...more
Thanks Anna for sharing this with me, it's perfect for Talin ;)
Their history with each other is fantastic, and full of depth. It really shows how Clay became the person he is. And I loved seeing more about this intensely shut off character.
To be fair, their history shows why Talin became the perso...more
Not because of Clay, of course, he's wonderful (as all changeling men are), though a bit too much on the wild side sometimes, and he could've pulled back on the whole "let's...more
Clay and Tally knew each other since they were kids, and their bond was created through friendship, and later through Clay's act of protectiveness, him killing her foster father and saving her from further abuse and eventually death by the sick idiot.
Tally witnessed the murder and was mentally scarred by it, and eventually became terrified by...more
4 Claylicious Stars! Such an amazing series!
I don't even know where to begin. Clay and Talin were destined to be together. What they both had to face and overcome, horrifying, and I was thrilled that they found their way back to each other. The kidnapping and killing of the kids, very disturbing, but not surprising as to what lengths the Psy will go get what they want. Well, their world is starting to crumble and I can't wait until it all comes crashing down around them!
Clay is nice but he wasn't irresistible to me. He felt like someone I would want for an older brother, not someone I would be attracted to. Maybe it was because he knew the heroine from such a young age and the connection began as "best friends" and escalated to mates.
Tally is a very strong person BUT her lapses to self-pity kind of lost her points with me. That and the fact that she hurts Clay by being afraid of him when al...more

I haven't reviewed book 3, Caressed by Ice, yet, but I wanted to get this one out of my system. Hmm...sounds bad, doesn't it?
Well...I have mixed thoughts/feelings about this 4th installment of the Psy/Changeling series. I’m sad that I didn’t love this one as much as I loved the first 3 books.
Clay Bennett, a sentinel of the DarkRiver leopard pack, grew up in the slums of the human world. He never knew his changeling father and his human Egyp
There it is...unapologetically shoving it's fabulousness in your face. Leopard spotted male dashing through... fire? Oh and this font, YES THIS FONT. I'm an absolute judge a book by it's cover person, and this magnificent piece of art screams LITE ME ON FIRE I AM TERRIBLE.
I don't have anything good to say about this book, it was my least favorite thus far in the series. First of all the male lead's name is Clay a...more
The only thing is- I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first three.
I had "issues" with the heroine.
Talin and Clay have known each other since they were children. But one blood soaked day, Clay went berserk protecting her from...more
What kept me going through this part was Clay, a DarkRiver leopard and sentinel. He w...more
I have had a big run of contemporary romances lately and needed a shifter fix. Boy, why had I waited so long between shifters?? No idea, but it has definately given me another taste for more and I think I will be on a shifter-a-thon for a while.
I started this series over a year ago and read the first three in quick succession, but for some reason must have needed a break, so my memory was a bit fuzzy – which is really disappointing because if I didn’t have t...more
This image is perfect for Tally (who is totally unworthy of that name. I am sorry but Tally from Uglies was so awesome). She is so goddamn ANNOYING. She constantly whines. Is incredibly possessive and cannot seem to make up her goddamn mind. Does she want him to be her friend or her lover? MAKE UP YOUR MIND. Grr. Yes I know she had a traumatized childhood and all that jazz but I don't understand her behavior. I know she is scarr...more
And it pisses me off bec...more
In this installement of the series, we are back in the DarkRiver Pack. The hero is Clay, one of Lucas’s Sentinel and the heroine is Talin, a human.
Clay and Talin are true mate, they bonded when they were kids. They used to live in the same low income neighborhood, Talin with her foster family and Clay with his human mother.
Clay’s parents were mate but when his father died, his mother couldn’t bear to see Clay in panther form so he was de facto forced to stifle his cat. Although it was killing...more
I don’t like the way Singh writes romance. This fascination with the über-alpha male is tiresome and not at all exciting, mostly because it comes with heroines who must submit before they can start hammering some sense into the thickheaded muscle men.
Having said that, Clay wasn’t as bad as the three that came before him. He actually asks Talin if he can embrace her the first time. Then it...more
WOW WOW WOW What a book!!
An emotional one at that!
So much happens in this one, I really Enjoyed this one as well
can't wait to read the next one...
I love how we get to see every one from all the other books, thats what i love about this series!!!
Re Read July 2011~~ Still Loved it!!!
One of the strengths of this series is that one could remove the paranormal elements from the tale and still have a strong story line. Singh's Psy-Changelings are people with relationships first, and the paranormal nature of the characters only really factors in the suspense elements of the plot. Talin McKade...more
Mine to Possess wasn't a bad book but I personally didn't like it all that much. My main problem with this book was the heroine Tally. She got on my nerves through most of this book and I just couldn't warm up to her. You know it's a bad sign when you wish the hero would give her the flick. She had her good moments but they were few and far between. Now Clay I liked a bit more than Tally but I didn't love him. He was just mediocre for me and nothing seeme...more
I have two major problems with this book. First and foremost, the way Talin relate...more
Rating: Let me rub against your cover
* It's more of a 3,5*
A book with a strong start and a good drive all the way through.
MC’s past is full of drama. I like a good, tortured past. The fact that Clay and Tally knew each other as kids helped the believability of their relationship. They have a connection. People that grew up together in difficult circumstances do form stronger bonds than happy kids. Extreme conditions tend to strengthen the bond.
Angela, I don’t think she’...more

“Load of shit,” he muttered, but she thought she heard a softening in his tone. “You fucking made me attend tea parties.”
She remembered his threat before the first one: “Tell anyone and I’ll eat you and use your bones as toothpicks.”
