Bonds of Justice (Psy-Changeling #8)
More lists with this book...
So...this book was not so good as the previous others. Yeah, it happened and I blame my (too) high hopes for this book to be really great or as great as the others in this series. I love PNR and with this story I just didn't feel that much of PNR going on. You have a human detective and a psy. They have two murder cases and one of course leads to a deadly situation that resolves in some action and good loving afterwards. I love that type of plots but with this book, it simply felt too real, too ...more

Bonds of Justice is a FANTASTIC addition to this AMAZING series. It's not my favorite as the plot and romance seemed to drag a little, but I went gaga over Max and loved the active role some of the DarkRiver members played in this book. As for the Psy Council…HOLY COW! The plot thickens! NOTHING IS WHAT IT SEEMS!!! *rubs hands excitedly*
Max and Sophia were chosen to work together to solve the special case. Both of them we ...more
WOW! This is another amazing installment in Singh’s phenomenal, original, and brilliantly crafted Psy-Changeling series. I just loved the relationship between sexy, possessive, protective alpha human cop Max Shannon and Justice-Psy Sophia Russo.
I’m continually impressed by the unique, spellbinding world-building, intriguing, complex characters that are impossible not to fall in love with, and the deeply emotional, passionate romance, and this is one of my favorites of ...more
Edit after reread: This is very strange, but this book didn't work for me even after the reread, but for completely different reasons. The romance was actually sweet and lovely for me this time, but the story and the case they were working on were extremely boring, plus that horrible psycho dude was, well, horrible! But at least I like them more as a couple than I did at first read :)
Although I love the Psy world and characters, this book I just couldn't get into.
First of all - I miss the usual ...more
“Will you remember me?”
His heart broke into a thousand pieces. “Always.”
No one knows much about the Justice-Psy. Except that they’ve always been part of the world’s justice system, able to retrieve and share memories from minds. They are quite rare, and have a short work span. Everyone among the justice world knows that they are only around a certain number of years, until they just disappear, never to be seen again. And Sophia Russo has been a J-Psy for twelve years. Her mind i...more
A buddy read at BB&B with my friends Joanita and Angela! We love our Psy and Changelings:):):)
Wow! I can not believe this is the 8th book in the series already! I think in the case of PNR this is a better fit, since every book deals with different couples within the same world, imaginatively created by Nalini Singh and richly populated with humans, changelings and Psy, all with their racial and cultural differences and all basically yearning for the same things, even if some of t ...more
And, that's a good thing because as creative and interesting as the world is; the romances can get a bit stale. The males are almost all the same - alpha's ...more
Take care of my heart won’t you, Sophie? It’s a little odd having it outside my body—but I’m planning to steal yours to make up for it.
- Handwritten note from Max to Sophia
Enjoyable reread. I thought Max and Sophie happened a little quickly and without foundation but once that train started I felt no need to get off. Nikita and Kaleb's characters are fleshed out and the PsyNet itself becomes a character. I had completely forgotten about River but I hope to see him again soon. It was also ni ...more
I enjoy Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling novels, if not for the romance, then for the overarching plot and action. The elements of Bonds of Justice that affect the overall plotline of the series can be summarized in a paragraph, and the action in a line.
So, the romance. Max and Sophia gush without much grounds from page one, literally between every line of dialogue so that I could imagine Paul Rudd and Cheryl Hines reading with relish. Imagine those ...more
“Max?”Like the previous one, this book involves a Psy and a human, no changelings. Obviously, I was a bit reluctant to read it but it was a great surprise because I ended up really liking the main characters. Max and Sophia were amazing together and individually. Nalini is a rock star.
“Will you remember me?”
His heart broke into a thousand pieces. “Always.”
Why 3 stars? Because I found the story quite boring, it was slow and I had to force myself to keep reading. Lucky me, I loved th ...more

I'm going to start this review by saying that I absolutely adore Sophia and as a result there may be some gushing about her in this review.
As with 'Blaze of Memory' this book has a different feel to it compared to the rest in the series. Here ...more
2013 re-read Note: Review is from first reading. This book holds up. I love Max, and Sophia. The "no games" rule is one of my favorite things ever, and how they come to love each other and deal with the very real issues in their world (no changeling bond to save Sophia from the PsyNet) gets me every time.
Max Shannon is a human cop for the New Y ...more
In short, there is the main story reserved only for this book. A number of Councillor Nikita Duncan's people either committed suicide, had some kind of accident or just died. Too many not to be suspicious. And who better to find out what is going on than the cop with strong natural shields, fact a lot of Psy told Max Shannon revealing that every now and then someone tries it. Nikita partners him with Sophia Russo, a ...more

★★★★ (This is a review of the audiobook.) Angela Dawe continues to narrate the wonderful Psy-Changeling series, and with the eighth book she delivers her usual excellent job of distinguishing the male and female characters. I’ve grown used to her reading of this romantic paranormal, action-packed, psychological thriller-come-political mystery.
I loved this one! Maybe not as much as some of the others in this fascinating futuristic series; nevertheless, I've learned I ...more
So yeah, like I said, I absolutely adored Max. He is an Enforcement cop who is first briefly introduced in Mine t ...more
Sophia Russo is a Justice Psy, or J-Psy. She's the one the cops and the prosecutors call in when they need memories retrieved. She first encounters Max Shannon when she's called in to retrieve memories from a serial killer.
Max has the best solve-rate in the city and has a natural shield that keeps the Psy from influencing him. They both sense something interesting about each other, but after Sophia is done with her task they expect to ...more
Meine Gedanken zum Buch:
Wieder einmal konnte mich ein Teil dieser Reihe fast vollkommen überzeugen. Ich weiß nicht, genau, wie Singh es macht, aber immer schon nach 2-3 Seiten, bin ich total in der Geschichte drinnen und habe auch schon mit den Charakteren die ersten Bande geknüpft. Irgendwie schafft die Autorin es immer wieder mühelos, mich vom Anfang bis zum Ende mitzunehmen, egal ob es jetzt viel Action gibt, oder diese ...more
—Handwritten note from Max to Sophia“
This book is focused on the intra Psy-Council war. More specifically on Nikita Duncan who has her top management people mysteriously murdered. There is also a sub plot and I loved how it intermingled with the main one.
Sophia is a Justice-Psy. She has the ability of retracting memory from people and projecting them into othe ...more
Favorite Quote: Reaching out with a deliberate slowness, Max brushed his knuckles over her cheek. The sensation was a hot whip over her skin. “The things I plan to do to you, Sophie,” he whispered in a deep voice that made her toes curl.
Sophia Russo is a Justice Psy. She is able to delve into criminal minds and retrieve their memories – critical memories needed to prosecute the suspects at trial. She can also then project those memories to up to five peop ...more
Once again I think I have a new favourite couple in the Psy-Changeling series. Well, Max & Sophia will be my favourites until I read the next book anyway LOL. I say it every time I review one of these books but it's true, the series really does get better and better with each instalment!
Sophia is a Justice Psy which means she has the ability to look through the memories of violent criminals and testify in court to confirm their guilt. Justice Psy see so much horro ...more

“Show us the footage before your head explodes,” Lucas muttered, but his own cat was grinning to see Dorian so happy. The sentinel had been latent most of his life, unable to shift into leopard form. Now that he could, he did so at every opportunity. “Have you managed to catch a rabbit yet?”
A single eloquent finger. “Fuck you.”
Lucas snickered. “What about trying for a turtle?”
Dorian lunged out of the chair and went for Lucas’s throat.”
