Blaze of Memory (Psy-Changeling #7)
Stripped o ...more
Ahh...I just knew it! Once I start reading this series I just can't stop!!! It's that freaking good and amazing and awesome and just thank you Nalini for writing such fantastic books! I know I should be reading other books, like ARCs since the deadline is just a few days away, but yesterday I started reading the previous book in this series and guess what? Yeah...I can't stop. It's crazy. And now that I've read this book also, I'm already starting to read the next one. It's like a vicious circle ...more
Blaze of Memory tells the story of Devraj Santos, the director of Shine, and Katya, a damaged Psy with amnesia. Ekaterina, aka Katya, is dropped off at the headquarters of Shine unconscious, starved and abused. She doesn't remember who she is or what happened to her except in nightmares she can't remember upon waking. Dev knows she is probably a Trojan horse sent by the Psy to infiltrate Shine, which is the front of the Forgotten who are the descendents of the Psy ...more
No time to write a review, but I will say that the last 75% of this book is the reason I gave it such a high rating. It was AMAZING and left me an EMOTIONAL mess. Boy, do I love this series.
The lead male character was a total dick! Here's the situation:
The girl, Katya, is found by the guy, Dev, and she is a broken mess. She has been held prisoner for months, starved, tortured, and abused in every way. She's in a hospital bed and Dev is holding her head up to help her drink a little water. She has no idea who she is because she was tortured mentally until her mi ...more
As the director of the Shine Foundation, a secret organization that helps the Forgotten, who are the descendants of the Psy who broke from the PsyNet when Silence was implemented.
When he finds an unconscious and unknown woman on his doorstep, he’s suspicious that she may be a ploy to infiltrate the organization. But he’s not a person to abandon someone in need and the w ...more
Katya was abducted and tortured by the most vicious member of the Council, than left on the doorstep of Dev Santos, the director of Shine. What they both don't know is that she is psycologically programmed to kill Dev, and then commit suicide.
Other than that, there was not a lot of story in this book, mostly them talking, or Katya trying to escape, or them having sex XD It would have 3 stars from me, if not for th ...more
26/09/2016 Buddy read my favorite series with the lovely Choko and Angela over at BB&B.
All too soon, reality would claim them both. And when it did, Dev would either have to destroy her fledgling smile, savage her heart... or betray every vow he’d ever taken.
Dev Santos is the director of Shine, the foundation of the Forgotten. He’s ruthless and determined to keep the foundation and the forgotten kids safe from anyone who could or would harm them. So when he finds a battered and unconsci...more
A buddy read with Joanita and Angela at BB&B - we need some PNR in our lives!!!
Book 7 in the series and I am reading still, which means that the series is still going strong and Nalini Singh continues finding ways to keep my interest up. This book was a bit sadder and a bit different than the previous ones, not as much"fun", but there was a journal in the form of letters from a Psy mother to her child as Silence was about to be implemented, that gave a lot of history, background an ...more
Once again, Nalini Singh blew me away. I was very reluctant to read this book, it seemed so different than the others and I didn't think I would love the hero, Dev. There are no changelings in Blaze of Memory, the H/h are both Psy (on some level) and that also scared me. I'm used to the Psy/Changeling relationship and with this book, I had none of that. But, I was pleasantly surprised because I loved it. Yes, it was different than the others but it was still awesome.
Dev was such a great hero, I ...more

For those of you who know me, you realize I’m a big sucker for amnesia storylines. As I am a nurse, I realize how implausible they are; nevertheless, I still love to roll my eyes and laugh over them. However, this one is a bit different because Ms. Singh has set it in the fantastic futuristic world of her Psy-changeling series.
The amnesia is no laughing matter; Ekaterina – or Katya – was presumed dead in the Nebraska lab explosion ordered by ...more
My initial rating for this was only going to be 3.5 Stars. Update 05/04/2016 - 3 Stars
What changed my mind?
The ending. So instead.
4.5 “Those who dare to love” Stars. Update 05/04/2016 - 4 Stars
We see glimpses of Devraj “Dev” Santos in Mine to Possess. He is the director of the Shine Foundation. They protect the Forgotten those who dropped out of the PsyNet and didn't choose Silence. That was over one hundred years ago. But it was difficult ...more
Blaze of memory tells the story of Dev, the enigmatic director of Shine Foundation, the group that protects the forgotten Psy, and Katya, the former assistant of Ashaya (Hostage to Pleasure) who was captured by a member of the council and tortured nearly to death, and might or not, be the ultimate weapon of the Silent Psy against the Forgotten, even she can’t remember what kind of damage did they programmed her to ...more
In this book we get another point of view over the psy's world, the develop of the forgotten's story. I must admit that I though I would not be thrilled with this book because I heard tha ...more
Which isn't to say it's abad book. I'm sure that it works for a lot of people, and I couldn't really give a blanket 'don't read it' statement, but there are definitely friends of mine ...more
Rating: Too much, too soon, and for no good reason.
I really didn’t feel like writing this review because I wasn’t sure what felt wrong with the story. Why am I unhappy? But now I know so here it comes. Dev is a human. Ekaterina is a Psy Do you see any changeling here? No. So ‘mating’ magnetism doesn’t apply. Therefore their whole relationship seems kind of fishy.
Dev, the ruthless cavemen, suddenly falls for
I don’t know. And it terrifies me.”
In this book we have the first couple without Changelings. The heroes are Devraj Santos, leader of the Forgotten, introduced in Mine to Possess and Katya (Ekaterina), Ashaya’s ex assistant.
The Forgotten are the descendants of the Psys who defected from the PsyNet when Silence Protocol was implemented. Over the last century they continued to mingle with Humans and Changelings and their powers e ...more
To be honest i was at the start not liking this one, but as i kept with it i was falling hard for Dev, and was enjoying the book.. and Katya she was just so cute!! i really liked her a lot.
I hate Ming i really hope he dies!!
To be honest i really dont like any one on the council apart from Faith dad!!
This had me laughing at some stages, i was made a lot with Dev but what put me over was the Last 4 chapter Shit, i was crying so much,I love that emotional ride it is awesome!!!
Since the very first time I read this Tyler Hoechlin was my Dev. He is not a perfect match by any means but it's who he is in my head. The biggest problem I had this read was that it's the first time I've read this since my Sterek addiction started. It's terrible but I really missed Stiles. I may have a problem.

I was very intrigued that this story was going to be about Dev Santos, the director of Shine (the organization that protects the Forgotten) and the presumed dead scientist who used to work with Ashaya, Ekaterina.
It started out fine, she's been tortured nearly to death, both psychically and physically and left on Dev's doorstep. He obviously suspects a trap or Trojan horse, but he's a softy for injured women, so he brings h ...more
Meine Gedanken zum Buch:
Eigentlich habe ich mir von dem Buch nicht so viel erwartet, weil ich wusste, dass es dieses Mal nicht über einen Gestaltwandler handelt, sondern über quasi fast zwei Mediale. Dennoch hat Singh es geschafft, mich doch positiv zu überraschen mit einem sehr sturen, kalten, direkten, kontrollsüchtigen männlichen Charakter, der aber genauso zerbrochen ist und noch immer das Herz am rechten Fleck hat. Seine Gegenspielerin ist eine noch z ...more
