Shards of Hope
Awakening wounded in a darkened cell, their psychic abilities blocked, Aden and Zaira know they must escape. But when the lethal soldiers break free from their mysterio ...more
I read several times Nalini saying how she always had a plan; how she knew where story is going from the start.
It was never more obvious than here.
In Shards of Hope, the longest Psy/Changeling book to date, every thread woven, every character introduced, every alliance made and bridge mended through course of series comes together perfectly to round a story about a society emerging into new era.
Shards is happening only four months after Kaleb made a big announcement and ...more
So I'm gonna start this off with a story...
...A story about a conversation that many of us readers can probably relate to....
As many of us do, I read all kinds of random shit - vampires, werewolves, gay orc lords, fairies, bdsm, high school teenie bopper love - whatever, bring it on.
And my husband knows this.
And usually teases me about it all quite mercilessly.
Thus, everyday when he asks his daily questions of husbandly interest - "What are you reading? Is it good?" - My usual respon ...more
"Why did he persist in believing himself Silent? He cared. Aden had always cared. It was the biggest open secret in the squad. It was why they all fought so furiously for him and with him. Because Aden came back for his people. He’d come back for her."
This is the perfect "in-between plots" book. There's a great couple that holds it together, we see all the favorite characters from previous books (but they are not overwhelming in appearances, just a hint for us to be happy XD), we are introdu ...more
I loved this book but it was also a bittersweet read for me.
REVIEW TO COME SOON!
March 1, 2015 Orginal Post
Just got home from the trip of a lifetime and discovered a fantastic surprise in my mailbox—an ARC from my favorite author for the 14th book in her Psy-Changeling series, SHARDS OF HOPE.
I can't wait to read Aden and Zaira's story.
I LOVE THIS SERIES!
ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review ...more
This was disappointing. I was expecting Aden's story to be great after all the build up he and the Arrows got, but I was mostly bored by him and his relationship with Zaira/the Arrows. It didn't help that the story and the dynamics between characters were very similar to the last few books in the series, there was nothing new or exciting or interesting about any of it.
-The secondary characters were fun to read about, especially Nikita, Anthony, Kaleb, and Sienna.
-It was easy to im ...more
“If I take you,” she said, and it was a warning, “I’ll keep you. Always.”
Aden and Zaira have been kidnapped. They’re both injured with blocked Psy abilities and held in a compound. They will manage to escape and they will try to find out who took them and why.
Poor Zaira is so damaged beginning from her childhood when she killed her parents. Still she appears to be Silent. On the other hand Aden never really been Silent.
Although there is an understanding be ...more
Angela Dawe is amazing as always.
Love that it was two Arrows put together, and love how protective the heroine is over the hero. Well done.
Still good. I have a feeling I loved these characters even more this time (if that's possible). Aden's speciality is extraordinary.
Kaleb Krychek's opinion on Aden: “I have a feeling even if ...more
Do your job!
he gets it!
In this book we get to look at the deadliest psy group on the planet, the Arrows. They all have some sort of psychic powers that are so dangerous that their parents give them up to be trained assassins when they are toddlers. The training has always been br ...more
I would love to read more about remi's pack and lion changelings . I'm curious about water changelings but they seems sneaky :D
Aden and zaira are just plain cute and they're perfect together. aden's power is so awesome
even Kaleb questioned himself against the power of aden. And nalini made a right decision about give ...more
Before I get into a few details let me make sure you understand that this book is a progression of this series, it builds on things that happened in previous books and without ...more
Here is my first reaction to the story. My gut reaction. It may change after a second listen. Decent narration by Angela Dawe. In some books, her cadence becomes sing-songy, lulling me to sleep. Not here. In fact, the narration was better than the story itself, in my view.
Don't get me wrong....I did enjoy the story, which takes place 4 months after Silenc ...more
I will admit that prior to Heart of Obsidian I ...more
5 Amazing "I-can-no-longer-be-Silent stars"!
There are so many reasons why I look forward to reading Nalini Singh's serials (I have a tendency to loose interest in a series around the 6-7th book. "I" find the stories get too repetitive and loose their 'fresh' story-lines), and one of those reasons is that her story-lines continue to flow smoothly from one book to the next without 'repeating' a previous story.
Once again, Ms. Singh has brought her readers to the amazing world where Psy, change ...more
When the book first came out, I couldn't gather enough enthusiasm to read it right away. I had a bad feeling in my gut that I would not enjoy it as I did with previous books. I hate to be right.
I cannot believe I am going to say this to one of my favorites ever -- but I'm quitting the Psy/Changeling series. I realized after Kaleb's book, which was basically the end of 'the first arc', that I was no longer interested with the rest of the characters. Yes, I was able to give Vasic's book ...more
This book is about two Arrows – Zaira, who in this is the wild card, dangerous and potentially a ticking time bomb and Aden – who is leading the Arrows into a new way of life and a new way of living/being. He is the glue that holds the squad together and he has always wanted Ziara, she may feel the same but she feels her desire/craving for him is too dangerous to give in it. Be warned Ziara is pretty angsty.
I loved seeing the Psy and Changeling children that popped into this book, a ...more
Update 30 Oct'2014 JUST LOOK AT THAT COVER!!!
Update Oct 16th'2014: IT HAS A BLURB and A TITLE !!! Just look.

IT ALSO MAKES ME WANT TO LOSE MY MIND !!!
Finally Aden's book.
Nalini singh confirmed that this will be Aden's book on twitter YAY !!! ...more
Because if you told me that the woman who started as a flawed, lonely individual of an emotionless race would become a mother, a mate, a friend, a healer and an outstanding Alpha of one of the most powerful changeling ...more
As always I loved Nalini singh's book. It was action packed, romantic, emotional read , what more does anyone want? I adored Aden and Zaira. It was refreshing to read from different point of views and the book ended with new promise for the world.
I especially loved the interaction between Arrow children and adult. I am eagerly waiting for her novellas! Specifically arrow novellas.
I will recommend this series to everyone who loves romance and action with slight twist.
And totally forgot ...more
I fell totally in love with Aden. He’s one of the most complex characters in this incredible world that the author has created.
His dedication towards the Arrow world was extraordinary and I was blown away by the way he dedicated himself to his people.
“My job is to make sure no one is left behind.” Aden would never abandon any of his men or women in t...more
Injured and isolated, Arrows Aden and ...more
Was anyone else desperate for Aden’s book? He is the quiet unassuming leader of the Arrows, the Psy hit squad, but we all know that still waters run deep, especially in the romance universe. So I was expecting another instalment in the Psy Changeling series blazing with passion and romance as another Psy has his Silence shattered. However, it wasn’t quite the book that I was both expecting and hoping for.
In terms of the romance, Aden and Zaira were great together, they were both Arrows, so b
If you've kept up with all the action, politics, and intrigue, then you are in for a real treat.
This series has a wonderfully int ...more
