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
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
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
★★★★☆ (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
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
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

3.5 of 5 Stars
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
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
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
*Re-read in July of 2012, still fantastic.*
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!!!
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 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
Children are disappearing without a trace and Tally MacKade, a social worker for the Shine Foundation, has only one person to turn to: Clay Bennett, the leopard Changeling responsible for an extreme act of violence that ended her childhood. Can Tally get past her fears in order to trust the only person she has ever loved?
Disappointing addition to the series mainly because of the insipid heroine. Tally is emotionally stunted and her complete lack of self-worth...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

3.5 stars, rounded up because the amazing world of the Psy, Changelings & humans is immensely enjoyable, as are the complex plots and wonderful characters.
I have to admit, this is my least favorite book of the series, because of the relentless intensity. Tally's serious abuse as a very young child and the repercussions (sp?) throughout her life were hard to read about. Clay, her love interest, a leopard changeling, is an uber-alpha, off-the-chart intense himself, wit...more
Mine to possess is the story of Clay and Talin. After being separated for many years, Talin comes back to find Clay and ask his help. From the moment she appears Clay's life change forever, so does her own.
It was really well- written. I loved the plot and the whole story. Their past was really interesting and I loved how the barriers they had, were falling one by one as the story progressed.
As for the characters I really liked Clay from the first time I read...more
The complex Psy have a complicated and frightening history. Each revelation about them reveals another reason to fear and loathe those responsible for implementing and maintaining Silence, and those who wish to take it a step further by trying to create a hive mind, thereby completely destroying individuality and the freedom of choice.
The edgy political relationship b...more
There was no time wasted in getting into this story, and I liked that. A lot. We meet Tallin, our heroine, and we find that she’s looking for Clay to help her find an at-risk boy she’s...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.”
