Allegiance of Honour
The 'unparalleled romantic adventure'* of Nalini Singh's New York Times bestselling series continues as a new dawn begins for the Psy-Changeling world . . .
The Psy-Changeling world has undergone a staggering transformation and now stands at a crossroads. The Trinity Accord promises a new era of cooperation between disparate races and groups. It is a beacon of hope held tog...more
This was me before starting this book, literally:
"There's not enough space in the universe to contain the squee right now."
This was me when I cracked it open, read the Author's Note, and soon realized that it was an "ensemble" book:
And this was me about 25 pages in:
Now, let me get one thing straight:
I love Nalini Singh.
Her writing and story lines are incomparable.
I am continuously impressed by her talent and the complex, tangible worlds she has been abl ...more
This book just made me happy! So, so happy. Thank you Nalini Singh for giving me a series I will forever treasure. ❤
"So many bonds," [Xavier] murmured as the two of them stood under a night sky that reminded him of Kaleb's cardinal eyes. "So many connections. Our world is becoming the interlinked entity it was always meant to be."*
Having finished the book I feel a complete sense of fulfillment.
Everything is not tied-up. All villains are not dead, and not all heroes have found their place and happy endings. Not all answers have been found, and there are some questions that are yet in need of being asked ...more

PsyNet. Web of Stars. ShadowNet. Honeycomb.
After so many books it's easy to notice that undergoing symbol of this series is a connection, a web of social relationships between characters we got to meet so far. That becomes more obvious than ever in AoH since, abandoning a familiar paranormal romance formula, we are not focused on development of one, central, romantic relationship- we are seeing our characters thrive as part of community, not just as couples.
This is where I need to stat ...more
I still remember the first time I picked up a Nalini Singh book. I was at the library and looking for more PNR to binge on (I was going through a huge PNR phase). And then I spot a series of books that looked like the covers belonged on a bad 80's action movie. My inner cover wh*re cringed a little but I will forever be grateful I picked up that first book because that turned into what I now refer to as the PNR binge of 2010. When someone asks me what my favorite PNR series is to date, it ...more
All the different POVs made my poor head hurt. Trying to remember everyone, mixing up their names, then keeping track of whose pupcubs are whose, my brain just wants to check out now. It was great seeing everyone's HEAs still holding up (side look at you Susan Fanetti) and prevailing over the Consortium for the moment but no more ensemble books for me. It tired me out.
I LOVED this book!!!
The world has changed in countless ways since the day a cardinal empath sat across from a changeling alpha, the empath trying to hide her emotions, the alpha trying to see under her skin....more
There has been war, destruction, piercing love.
Loyalties have been tested.
A way of life overturned.
Blood has run red as those who would hold on to power cut down innocent lives.
Soldiers have died.
Children have been born.
Bonds have formed.
Hearts have entwined.
Old enmities have been forgotten
Ow, wow! Even after 15 books, this series is still amazing and it never ceases to surprise me. When I begin to think that there could not be any more interesting things or situations to anticipate, Nalini introduces new EXTRAORDINARY characters and I just can't wait for their books to be written and released. The series is truly captivating and I hope it never ends. I want to read about everyone. I want every Psy, Changeling or human find their mate and be HEA. I want to see the children, pups a ...more
Allegiance of Honor takes place after the events in Shards of Hope. Or thereabouts. It's post silence. The Consortium is now but a shadow of its former glory and a new power block is emerging. One that is committe ...more
As my friend Laura said... this book is a huge family meeting!
We get to revisit ALL the characters from previous books/novellas/short stories, etc.!!! EVERY. SINGLE. ONE of them has a chapter dedicated here!
I had the feeling that it was getting a little bit crowded…
Put inside this gathering all the pups/cubs of the various couples and you’ll get it…
OK so, leopard pup playing with dad is cute, but wolf kit jumping on the lap, licking, nipping… whatever… every 10 pages or so, it is a little bit ...more
The Trinity Accord, an alliance formed between the Psy/Changeling/Human races is being threatened by the Consortium, a shadowy faction bent on destabilising the peace and co-operation among the three races. W ...more

This is actually a huuuuuuuge epilogue for every book and novella so far, and a huuuuge prequel for the characters that will have books in the rest of the series. I'm not a big fan of so many characters taking the lead spot in only one book (and believe me there were MANY here), BUT. It's so wonderful seeing them all again that it's worth the read definitely. AND it got me very curious about the new characters. Who will have the next book I wonder???
I’ve been a great fan of this series ever since I read the first book, almost 7 years ago. In fact, this series is the reason why I got into the paranormal genre (I was never a fan of Twlight.) From the beginning, I loved the combination of impossible love stories with plots full of action and incredible twists. ALL of that was missing in this book.
Allegiance of Honor was completely unnecessary, a book without plot and no main couple. Instead, we’re treated to almost 500 pages of dail ...more
5 Stars for Cuteness of seeing ALL the Characters in happy family moments
5 Stars for all the heartwarm moments
2 Stars for actual plot development
This is a fan book. What I mean by that is this alternates from blissfully happy moments showing The Packs and the Arrows with children, to established couples getting it on, to minuscule plot developments. No a lot actually happens.

Heroes, I’ve learned, don’t always wear white.
Sometimes they come from the darkness, shadows among shadows.
Allegiance of Honor brings us the beginning in the end of the Psy-Changeling series. While there are many plot-lines throughout this read (sometimes getting a little overwhelming), as a whole this book is such a pleasure to read, reuniting us with many of the previous couples we've fallen in love with; Lucas and Sasha, Hawke and Sienna, Judd and Brenna, Kaleb and Sahara ...more
SPOILERS AHEAD, BE WARNED!
I loved this book. I really enjoyed it. The only thing that bothered me was the lack of a real (new) enemy. The Architect was glimpsed at but he did pretty much nothing. This was the first book of the new season and I had a feeling that the old enemies (Ming LeBon) need to be defeated.
Now onto the good stuff. Nikita Duncan is everything and Anthony Kyriakus is beyond awesome. I love how almost everyone hints that something weird (and hot) is going on betw ...more
Do you think that there is no such a thing as "too much happiness", as I had naively thought before this book? Dare you to read this bundle of cuteness and then think again!
There was so much happiness, rainbows shooting out of kids' cute butts, unicorns eating coloured cupcakes, sunshine glittering at sexy chest hairs, I had to take breaks and think depressing thoughts to be able to continue reading. Seriously. One more scene with aww see how cute and happy and ...more

I am grateful that most of my coworkers were out to lunch as I began to make inarticulate noises while frantically searching for my cell phone, lost somewhere beneath the papers. Then I had to wait for my own lunch ...more
This was an amazing book! I couldn't believe how much I enjoyed it! Nalini did it again :D
When I first heard this will be a transitional book, and that it won't have a main couple I was skeptical but game. As the release day got near the excitement got to me… so the expectations were high. I loved every minute of it!
Nalini showed almost all the main couples, Xavier finally found his Nina, we got a few great Kaleb and Sahara scenes(<3), we saw more of BlackSea and most ...more
1. Describe this book in three words
Suzanne: Sweet, Slow, Filler
Annie: Unexpected. Sweet. Heartwarming.
2. Was Allegiance of Honor what you expected?
Suzanne: No, it definitely wasn’t what I was expecting from Singh. This book didn’t have a new romance in it, but was rather showing all the different couples from the previous series and what they are doing and how they are feeling now Silence has fallen. As much as I did enjoy seeing this, it wasn’t what I was expecting.
Annie: Definitely not. W ...more
Looks like book 15 seems to be the mark where I give up on a series. I'm well aware that I haven't rated/reviewed all of the books but that doesn't matter now.
I still have no clue what the point of this book was, other than being a 478 pages long epilogue with all previous couples involved. If Ms. Singh's message was that love, family, pack, friendship are the answers to the world's problems, she sure as hell made sure I didn't miss it, as it was ...more
