I LOVED the secondary characters.

I LOVED the drama.

I especially LOVED the NetMind.
Yep! That's A lot of LOVES. Lol
The conversations between the NetMind and Faith were some of my favorite...more
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
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

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
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.
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
I don't know what is it with me and movies lol but this one reminded me of Minority Report :) Faith is a Psy who can see the future, she is isolated from everyone, even her own kind, her life centered only on the visions she's having. One day she learns that her sister has been murdered, and in the same way she's been dreaming about, so being affraid of the visions, she goes in search for Sascha,...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 co...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
I am beginning to believe the author cannot write a bad book, what a talent!!
Here we have Vaughn, OMG GIVE ME MORE OF HIM!! He is hot, passionate, sensual, potent pushy, protective, and overwhelming! I am in love! And then there is Faith, I liked this character, she is strong willed, determined, beautiful and brave. Considering how her life had been, and how isolated she was to wal...more
Vaughn is awesome of course but he lacks some of the edge that made Lucas so hot. He is supposed to be more feral but to me he seemed more tame. Maybe it's the difference between alpha and Alpha. I think my main poblem was that he accepted his "mating" way too easily, especially with a silenced, soulless Psy.
Faith again I liked but not as much as Sascha. She wasn't as easily loved as the Empath girl. Mayb...more
For the first 60% of this book I felt like I was just reading the first book with new characters in the lead. The last 40% saved this book from a three star. Until then we had the same...more
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
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
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
Faith Nightstar is a special Psy. Her forecasting abilities have made a lot of money for the Psy. F-Psys are extremely rare and most are exploited until they literally lose their minds. Because of her abilities, Faith leads a cloistered life and is under constant supervision. Faith senses changes in her abilities and be...more

Now, switch it up and make the women the cold, unfeeling ones who have to "discover" their inner emotions. Women who...more
Gah, have I mentioned how much I love this series? These changeling males are just so damn swoony. The way Vaughn was so sweet and patient with her, the way he let her make her own decisions and trusted her to take care of herself when it comes to her ability. *sigh* I love this book, I love the romance and I love this complicated world that Nalini Singh has created.

This series is quickly becoming a favorite. I found some of the terms a little confusing in the first book, but by this one it was much easier to follow the world of the PSy. And what a world, I love it. The psy world kind of reminds me of the Matrix--only the people in it know they're in the Matrix and they can't leave it or they die. THis is THE most unique shifter series I've ever read. I don't know why I procrastinated reading it.
The main characters, Vaughn and Faith, were each individually great, but together, they were just awesome! First, there is Vaughn, a bit of a loner sentinel for the DarkRiver Pack, who is inexplicably drawn to a Psy compound, and even moreso, to an F-Psy, Faith. He is a jaguar for a leopard pack, and by God, is he ever YUMMY!!! RAAWWWR...more

Rating: "You had me at 'hello.'"/Boy, that escalated quickly
Let me remind you *** is a positive rating. (view spoiler)[ can't allow myself to throw too high rating everywhere (hide spoiler)]

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
Nachdem ich in letzter Zeit einige durchschnittliche, schlechtere Bücher gelesen habe, kam mir dieser zweite Teil von Singh wie ein Segen vor. Es gibt Autoren, bei denen weiß man ungefähr was man bekommt und wenn man ein Fan ihrer Vorgehensweise ist, dann wird man nicht enttäuscht und Singh gehört absolut zu meiner Gruppe dieser Autoren.
Man weiß zb. hier von Anfang an, dass es sich hauptsächlich um eine Liebespaar dreht, dass sich oft erst in diesem Teil kennenlernt, anfä...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.”
