Before we get started, I have a confession to make...

I wasn't all that excited about reading this book.

I know, I know, how dare I, and all that jazz.

As I've said before in other Psy-Changeling/Trinity reviews, such as THIS one and THIS one, I prefer my P-C/T books to be about, well, changelings.

Or really powerful Psy à la Kaleb Krycheck.

When you hit book #17 in a series, you really don't get to complain too much because you keep reading. So... you know, don't keep ordering the same meal and then complain that you don't like it, stupid! But, I do like a LOT of this series, it's just that there are so many Paranormal Romance Tropes that she includes in all of them that it drives me crazy.


Don't worry, they are deeply in love within 90 minutes of spending time together. And, no, for once I'm not exaggerating. Here, proof through qu

Since listening to the audiobook of Silver Silence I've been obsessed with the Psy-Changeling world. I'm making my way through the first books in this series via audio and loving them. If you don't mind jumping in in the middle of a series - Silver Silence is a good place to start but you definitely want to read all of them because the other books just give you a deeper reading experience.

So...Ocean Light. My friends know how fascinated I am with the ocean. There is nothing more mysterious on th

I have to admit that I love Nalini Singh's changelings more than her PSY. And every time she writes a story centered on changelings I'm going into DO NOT DISTURB MODE.

Ocean Light was fabulous. Not action packed, just character driven, slow burn, swoony, sweet, heart-achingly beautiful at times and all around awesome.

What I LOVED most about this book was the story between Bowen and Kaia.

Bowen has been a part of this series for a long time now. As a human, he was never big on my radar. I

A tale of underwater changelings and the human who volunteered to be their science experiment.

Bowan has been a character  I’ve had mixed feelings about in prior books of this Psy-Changeling Trinity series.  I didn’t get all of Bo’s motivations to put a dangerous experimental chip in his head that protects him from psy manipulation but is also killing him slowly as well.  Ocean Light digs into Bo’s head literally and we learn not only why th

I was really expecting more from this book. Maybe that was the problem. I loved Silver Silence so much and by comparison, this book was such a letdown. Was it terrible? Absolutely not. But it wasn't great either.



And dammit, I wanted great.

Plot: Bowen wakes up and finds himself under the care of water changelings as they attempt to prevent the chip which is supposed to protect his mind from Psy invasion from eventually killing him. Unfortunately, he only has a 5% chance of success. He meets Kai

AFTER READING:

SPOILERS AHEAD, BE WARNED!

This book was an enjoyable read for me. Before this book, I did not consider Bowen a great lead character material because I thought that he was boring. Nalini changed my mind.

Kaia Luna was an interesting heroine. At first, I was disappointed that we are not getting Malachai or Miane and instead we got a new character from BlackSea. When I was reading this book I did not mind at all that she is the heroine. Kaia was a brave and gentle character and she had

The world has forgotten that humans are the bridge.

Ocean Light takes use into the BlackSea Changeling world and the Human Alliance where we see doubt, over coming the odds, betrayal, fears, and making new friendships. Those that have kept up with the Psy-Changeling world know that things are changing and all the races are trying to get along, but their is one group that doesn’t want to see things succeed.

Bowen Knight is a true Knight in all the right ways. He’s had a difficult past that has sh

Este es el libro 17 de la serie Psy/Cambiantes y tiene como protagonistas a Bo líder la Alianza Humana y Kaia una cambiante que pertenece al Clan Blacksea.

Nalini Singh is one of the few authors who has never let me down, I preorder her books the second they pop up on amazon, devour them the minute I can get hold of them and I always know that I'm in for heartwarming romance, fantastic characters and wonderful world building. Her Psy-Changeling series is one of the best paranormal romance series out there and this new second phase of the series is proving that she's still at the top of her game.

Ocean Light is Bowen Knight’s story; the leader of the Human Alliance and one of the leaders in the Trinity Accord. Fans have been expecting his story, straddling the fence and withholding our forgiveness over his past deeds. Bowen had an experimental chip put in that blocks the Psy’s ability to manipulate human

Honestly, I haven’t loved the last few books but this series is still one of my absolute favorites. This one was just okay, I felt like the entire middle of the book was kind of slow but the end got more exciting so I liked it more overall. I hope the next book is more exciting.

The last thing Bowen Knight, the head of the Human Alliance, remembers is being shot and falling into the water. Now awake he realizes he’s not dead but has been saved by the Black Sea clan and is deep below in their habitat in the sea. His life has been saved, but the chip that shields his mind from Psy attacks is degrading quickly. He only has a few weeks/months left to live if nothing is done. However, the Black Sea clan doctor has been working on an experimental compound to neutralize the th ...more

As I said in my progress, I might have been influenced by my love for the sea, but I found very intriguing the "new" changelings of Black Sea! :)

I was ineterested in them since they appeared and here we are given a little glimpse at them and their life and interactions.

Almost like Bowen was! LOL

Even though I'm a huge fan of this series, Silver Silence bored me beyond mesure so I was pretty afraid of picking this one. If it wasn't as bad as Silver Silence, it wasn't up to par with the rest of the series either.

Quite frankly, even though I love Bo and everything related to the sea-changelings and liked kaia enough, I found the first half boring. Nothing much happened. No tension, no nothing.

I don't know how to say this but it's a romance book, so of course Bo is going to survive the

DNF at 24%. I'm bored; and had already started skimming through all the nothing happening. It's just not holding my interest. I will have to hear that this gets vastly more entertaining before I pick it up again.

Para mí, este libro es un NO rotundo. Si me preguntan después seguiré diciendo lo mismo. No pasa nada si te lo saltas. Porque no aporta nada a la trama principal.

No hay nada destacable además de la aparición de Kaleb y su papel en la resolución de la historia romántica.

Eso y una bonita cena son todo lo que me gustó en este libro.

La historia de amor es poco creíble y muy instalove, sus escenas juntos me dejaron indiferente y francamente... Nunca pude conciliar la imagen de un Bo sexy as hell qu

Ocean Light is pure delight! Life under the sea has not been this much fun since The Little Mermaid. Every time Nalini Singh invites readers into a new part of the Psy-Changeling world, I fall in love all over again.

Bowen Knight – the champion and effective leader of the Human Alliance – is living on borrowed time. The chip implanted in his brain to stop Psy attacks on his mind is failing and will more than likely take his brain down with it. His only shot at survival

I have mixed feelings about this book, which I hate to say because I am such a huge fan of Nalini Singh. But the degree of Insta love here was just insurmountable. It colored my ability to enjoy the first half of this story to such a degree that it made it difficult to connect to the characters or the romance for a very long time. Don’t get me wrong, I understand that with shifters, a mating instinct requires acceptance of a quick connection. But the hero here is human and he was the biggest off ...more

Nalini Singh is one of my go-to authors. I trust her to consistently take me on a journey that I adore. Ocean Light is no exception. This book has a more introspective and character-driven approach. Despite the ticking time-bomb in Bowen's head, and the incredibly present mystery to be solved.

I quite enjoyed this pace and having the time to get to know them both. Bo, despite being a somewhat regular character in the story, has never really been someone that I was too intrigued with. I should pro

It's been a while since we got a human MC in the Psy-Changeling world, and while they're usually not my favorite, Nalini Singh didn't disappoint with Ocean Light. Bowen and Kaia were wonderful together. I LOVED getting to know the water changelings more (and am hoping we get more books about them! *cough* Malachai and/or Miane).

Well one of the reasons I don't write books (outside of that no talent and no imagination thing) is that I have no patience, I would have all bad guys dead by page 10 and wonder "where do I go from here".

“Yes, and thinks he’s a brain in a jar.”


Wouldn't it be a twist if a romance hero would be a brain in a jar...

Anyway, this is going to be short and sweet. I thought this one had a bit of a pacing problem. And, if I'm honest, Bo and Kaia weren't among my favorite couples. I loved the ever expanding world, though.

So, overall, it's an enjoyable addition to the new arc of the series, but I didn't like it nearly as much as the first Trinity book.
