I loved this book just as much as I loved book one.
I adore the world Singh has built here and I love her writing, characters, and plots.
She is a true talent and I would recommend this series and her Angel series to anyone who loves solid PNR.
I'm dying to start the next book, so I'll simply say:
I LOVED THIS BOOK!

The conversations between the NetMind and Faith were some of my favorite ...more
Faith is the best F-Psy i.e. of the foreseers. She has been working since she was three years old and she could talk. She almost never leaves her home, she has security 24 hours per day, her meals are planned and if she has to make contact with the Psy who is responsible for her in certain intervals of time. Otherwise everyone is worried. Sometimes she is so lost in her visions of the future that she forgets to eat or drink.
Faith had never ...more
Man, I'm so happy I started reading this series, it's trully awesome. There is a reason Nalini Singh is one of the best (if not the best) PNR writers and this story is definitely one of the reasons why! I simply can't get enough of this fantastic world she created and the plot structure. Each character is super individual and interesting, each plot is original and when reading the book you can really let yourself go and dive into this magical world. Just wow! Enough with talking, I'm on to readi ...more
You know the problem with binge reading? It’s that I go through the books too quickly to assimilate them. I also rate and mark them as “RTC” and then when I finally come back to them to review, everything is a big freaking mess in my head and I’m like “wait, did that happen in book 2 or 3”?! The plot is separate - ish BUT there is a continuing storyline throughout.
Now as to this book. It was ok and I would have said it is the weakest in the series, but no, that would be Dorian’s book ...more
First read 27/03/2018 - 28/03/2016 - 5 ★
Currently rereading 26/06/2018 - 27/06/2018 nothing has changed still 5 ★
3rd reread - 4th May 2020.
I’m actually quite annoyed with myself that I didn’t start this series sooner. I’ve been missing out big time and I’m really regretting it. ⇦ Still true.
Personally I think that the first books cannot be read as standalones as this is a build up to an extraordinary world and that it is ...more
4 "love the story" stars!
This review includes my thoughts on the audio version.
This world that Nalini Singh has created is amazing. Absolutely enthralling! I love the way the stories unfold, the trials, the triumphs... it's a brilliant world, overall.
This particular story was a bit slow to start, and I had some problems getting into it. But once things started rolling, I was hooked and couldn't get through it fast enough.
I wasn't as impressed with Angela Dawe's narration this time. She does a gr ...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 Sasch ...more
The hero, Vaughn, was pushy and demanding, walking over the heroine's boundaries most of the time and knowing what the heroine needed and how far she could be pushed, which royally pissed some people off. And normally, that stuff would make me furious too. Yet in the world of shifters who acted on their instincts and listened to their mating bonds, his actions were pretty much normal so I rolled with it; plus he actually stopped himself from g ...more

The second book in the series centers around the F-Psy, - highly sought after ability to predict the future - Faith ‘Red’ NightStar (24) and Changeling jaguar Vaughn D'Angelo. We met Vaughn in book one were we see him as one of Lucas Hunter's sentinels and is Lucas’s closest friend. Vaughn was far more animal than most predatory changelings, had had to become so to survive. Faith of the PsyClan NightStar was considered the most powerful F-Psy of her generation; ...more
Visions of Heat the follow-up is the story of Vaughn D’Angelo, a jaguar Changeling adopted by the DarkRiver leopard clan
And Faith Nightstar a Cardinal F-Psy
I totally engaged with these two characters.
"You can see the future, Faith. That makes you ex...more
What went wrong here? I don't really know. It just feels like I've just read a poor version of Slave to Sensation, with more romance and less suspense/action.
The world building is still great but I expected Singh to dig a bit deeper here. Granted, the NetMind/DarkMind thing is pretty cool and we get to learn a bit more about the Silence Protocol but that's as far as Singh goes in terms of world expansion which is a bit disappointing. There is ta ...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 very well written story and Nalini Singh manages to bring the Psy-Changeling world and characters to life for me. The storyline kept me interested from start to finish and I never found myself bored or struggling to go on. I was drawn to the Changelings as being the right and good side, while also finding parts of the Psy appealing even though they are portrayed as the wrong side. I liked the touchy-feely part of being pack but would hate being t ...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 be
My number one biggest issue? Vaughn. Especially in the first 35% or so of the book. He's a pushy asshole. Ther ...more
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.
Quick rundow ...more
Vaughn is one of my favorite types of heroes. He quiet, deadly with a very strong presence. He comes off a bit cold. Faith is the exact opposite. She comes off as very innocent and sweet but still has a backbone. I liked these two paired together.
Another interesting plot and m ...more
Sadly this was disappointing, the first book was way better, the awesomeness of that one was what ruined this for me.
The protagonist were one dimensional and wasn't well developed and their story was bland. I so did not enjoy it.
The only good thing is the presence of the characters from book one in this. The romance and the writing wasn't too bad either. ...more
I. Couldn't. Put. It. Down. I'm addicted.
I absolutely loved Vaughn and Faith. L-O-V-E-D them together. They're so perfect for each other.
And Vaughn is just.. Yum. Hehe.
So to sum it up: I FREAKING LOVED IT. ...more
He’d marked her and he would have her, even if he had to coax her kiss by slow kiss. Cats were good at coaxing. It was only a more sensual aspect of their favorite game—stalking.
Faith NightStar is a cardinal F-Psy, one of the most powerful F-Psy of her generation. She is worth billions and her accuracy in business predictions are unrivalled. However she is suddenly seeing dark, sadistic visions. Visions that she has no control over and can’t escape. She can’t trust anyone from her r...more
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 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

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."
