I was SO excited to go back to the Psy-Changeling world with this newest installment...And even more excited that we would be seeing it through the eyes of SnowDancer.

SnowDancer is my favorite setting within this world, bar none (which I have discussed in previous series reviews ad nauseam), so to get to go back and relish that environment for yet another fantastic Singh book was incomparable.


I really loved Memory and Alexei together.

It's still surprises me that there are 18 books in this series and I've read every single one of them??

This is one of the best Paranormal world's that I've ever read about and I don't think I'll ever get enough of it.

The Psy Network is failing and the only thing holding it together are the Empath Psy. In this book we follow the story of a new type of E named Memory and Snowdancer lieutenant Alexei.

I always like the books with a changeling/psy relationship most. Alexei we've seen glimpses of i

As always it was wonderful visiting my favorite pack. I have a weakness for wolf shifters, and when I found out about the title and the blurb I was ecstatic.

I really was intrigued by the blurb.

Memory, even though she was kidnapped for many year, didn’t lose her feistiness or sass. She was a female character I adored for her strong will, endurance and strength to know what she wanted even if it seemed to make no sense. She was one of those characters whose personality spoke to me immediately. And

This is like going to a high school reunion except that nobody got older, fatter, balder, and their marriages are still just like they are on their honeymoon. Yeah, realistic.

Beardy has a point.
But in this case, this reunion is awesome for anyone who has read this series. All of your favorites are here, including my fav- Kaleb.

Our new couple is Alexei, a wolf shifter from the Snowdancer pack, and Memory, a psy girl who was imprisoned all of her life. Alexei rescues her from captivity and then ..

Just when I thought this world couldn't get any more expansive, Nalini Singh comes and proves me wrong.

I'm so happy that we're back with the SnowDancer pack this time around. I've missed their presence in the series for a while now and I'm so happy to see a lot of familiar faces not just from SnowDancer but from Darkriver crew as well.

Despite the familiar characters and setting, this book explores some new territory in the Psy-Changeling world. It's both fascinating and terrifying at the same ti
As much as I've enjoyed meeting the bears and spending time underwater with Blacksea in the last couple of books (and I am really hoping we'll get to spend more time with ALL of them!) I was still really excited that Wolf Rain would take us back to where it all began with the SnowDancer pack. I can't help it, I've loved this series for such a long time that spending time with the wolves (and the cats of DarkRiver) just feels like coming home and it was so wonderful to catch up with all the famil ...more

Yeah, so this one didn't do it for me.


I love Nalini Singh, I love the Psy-Changeling series, and when I have nothing better to read, I usually go back to either Mercy's book, or Heart of Obsidian.

But, it feels like after Heart of Obsidian, the stories are just... repetitive. I know, I know, it's romance, primarily, and the formula has been done over and over again, but Nalini seemed to have had somet

Wolf Rain is both the 3rd book in the Psy-Changeling Trinity and the 18th book in the Psy-Changling story. Every story follows one couple on their journey to love while building on a bigger story arc overall.  You could probably read one without reading others but there would be a lot
I’ve missed the wolves of SnowDancer. They, and DarkRiver, will always have the most special place in my changeling-loving heart, simply because they were the first. I’ll never get over their unique personalities, their love and care, or the vastness of their packs. They are large packs, but still family. You can feel it in all their interactions, and it’s like coming home for me.

Fair warning. Spoilers abound for any and all of the previous books in the series. Just trust me and go start at the
Mindy Lou's Book Review
Loved! This is one of my favorites in the series. It started out strong, stayed strong and ended strong. I practically devoured this book. I'm really loving how we learn in each book how everyone, Psy, Changling and Human, are imperative to each other to function. It has truly been exciting to learn new pieces to the puzzle. I also love how a character starts out thinking they are either useless, wrong or not capable and end up finding out they have a unique gift that will save others. I can't w ...more
Can anyone ever have enough of Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling world. Well now that she is three books into the Psy-Changeling Trinity world, we don’t have to worry about it.

In this installment, the Snowdancer Lieutenant Alexei is coming up on the 1 year anniversary of his brother’s death. He has been functioning as a shell of himself since the loss.

Deciding to take a run into the deep wilderness by himself sounds like the perfect way to avoid more contact with his packmates. While running Alexei

Yay, it’s been confirmed. This next book will feature Snow Dancer’s very own Lieutenant, Alexei.

Have a look at Nalini’s newsletter to see an excerpt from her working draft featuring Alexai... and from the sounds of it, the main female Psy will be named Memory. I can’t wait until June 😝🙌🏽

And I cannot wait to hopefully catch up with the characters we all know and love. I feel like the Psy-Changeling-Trinity “season 2” so far,

When I read the blurb for this book, and was still liek 5 books way, I got SO EXCITED. I am so happy to say that this did not disappoint and my PC binge session was totally worth it. Also, this further confirms my opinion that someone possessed Nalini while she wrote Ocean Light, because this was ekkkkk so great.

I thoroughly enjoyed this. I wish I had the physical copy so I could go back and read all my favorite parts. As I've said before, the individual Psy-Changeling books can be

4.5 Stars

I think the description is a little misleading, because it features the side story a little too prominently, because this story is mainly about Memory, a woman who was held captive, and Alexei the Changeling Wolf who found and rescued her.

Memory, an E (empath) Psy, was a remarkable woman, who despite her long captivity retained her spirit and strength. When Alexei finds Memory he’s enraged at the man who’s held her captive, but delighted to find Memory hasn’t been broken by the experie

Wolf Rain is book three in the Psy-Changeling Trinity series by Nalini Singh.

Singh never disappoints!

In Wolf Rain we go back to the SnowDancer pack.

Alexei is a lieutenant in the SnowDancer pack. I recognized him, but it took some memory jogging to fully pick out who he is. He used to be fun loving and outgoing, but with a tragedy in his past he’s become more recluse and not as easy going. It was intestine learning more about Alexi and seeing his struggle. Even with the pretty boy looks he’s a
I almost DNF’d.

The insta-luv was saccharine and filled with condescension. I came to hate the word ‘lioness.’

And how could Singh equate Alexei, sixth or seventh in Snow Dancer, with Aden, leader of the Arrows?!?! Bullshit.

And how could she yada yada Laura’s delivery?!?!

But I pressed on, fast forwarding the romance, to enjoy the greater story. I’m particularly excited that Pax is being brought up more. Fascinating guy.

Still a worthy series, but she’s getting lazy on the relationship end.

Memory and Alexei story was fab!

But you know why I gave this book a solid five stars?
Because we meet Judd, Hawke, Lucas and my one and only Kaleb again here! ❤️
Yes, they’re all, in this book!

What’s not to love? 😘

Aly is so frigging bored
I feel like I'm repeating myself, but I'm never disappointed by one of Nalini's stories. It was totally worth the wait and now, I have to wait even more for the next book. It's all a vicious circle *grins*

We've met Alexei books ago(I want to say in Hawke's book, but I don't remember for sure, yes i need to re-read them all, don't judge me!), but the Alexei we knew is now a bit broken. Memory is a new character who's been through a lot! Both of them are learning to relay on and to trust the other

So there is an Advance Excerpt from WOLF RAIN in Nalini's newsletter. She has kindly asked for us not to copy-paste it everywhere. And I'm not taking any chances and getting banned, so this is a link to the newsletter but if you are a fan really do subscribe as she regularly posts excerpts from all her new books.

On a side note I wasn't sure about reading this one but following the excerpt I'm definitely trying it out.

Probably my favorite Psy-Changeling book since Heart of Obsidian.

So freaking excited for more of my Favorite Series!!!

Bumped up from 3 Stars to 4 Wolfy Chicken & Lioness Stars.

While doing a reread of this awesome series, I completely forgot this book even existed. It was just so unmemorable. Reading it for a second time I just don't know why I found it to be this way.

There isn't a lot I can really add to all the other reviews apart from that this is one of my favourite series which I have mentioned on numerous occasions.

Memory's designation is interesting to say the least. I hope there are more like her out t

Ommmggg I missed SnowDancer so so much. Don't get me wrong, I loved the different changelings we've gotten to know but there is just something about the cats and leopards, it felt like coming home.

To sum up: I will be forever addicted to this series. And Nalini is fucking genius.

Really good! Silver Silence is still the best of the new series, but this was still really good. I liked Memory's character and backstory. I also liked the new developments with PsyNet. It was also great to so many of the old crew! I just didn't like how Alexei's issue just wrapped up so neatly. ...more

This book was good, but it wasn’t great.

We’re now 18 books into the Psy-Changeling series, and I’m really beginning to get the feeling that the more formulaic aspects of Singh’s plotting is beginning to show through. Both her heroine and villain felt like people I’d read about many, many times before – and in a better format.

With that said, though, her writing was superb as ever and I was definitely invested – hence the 4 stars.

-Ok, guys, Wolf Rain is back to basics Psy Changeling book.
I don't say that just because we are dealing with original snarling changeling pack. It's also because the story starts rather smaller in scale, but some events that perspired have consequences on the whole system Trinity established. Nice change from world-in-question themes we tackled in previous novels.

This is by far the strongest book in the new spinoff/story arc but it's still just okay. I'm amused that after all the fanfare announcing the Trinity books that were supposed to expand on the world and introduce new people, it only took 3 books to go back to familiar territory even though this book could have taken place anywhere else. I'm also pretty tired of e-psy heroines and it would be nice to see an e hero, but heroes whose strength isn't physical is not a thing in a series that so strongl ...more

“Poruszyła się na pięcie, odkryła dokładnie tego, którego się spodziewała. Hawke. Jasne oczy wilka alfa była jeszcze bardziej uderzające, a jego włosy wyjątkowo srebrno-złote. Utrzymując jego spojrzenie, podniosła dłoń. Memory stała w bezruchu, jej serce waliło, ale nie wzdrygnęła się, kiedy ujął jej policzek. Głęboki zapach akceptacji, pierwotna opiekuńczość , dzikie uczucie, wpływało do jej duszy. Właśnie dlatego był alfą. Ponieważ miał zdolność do trzymania każdego członka sfory w swoim sercu. „Jesteś teraz jedną z moich”- powiedział, odgarniając jej włosy drugą ręką zanim pochylił się, by pocałować ją w policzek. „Dzika, ocalała, wojowniczka, sprawiasz, że całe stado będzie dumne.” Oczy piekły ją z niesamowitej siły akceptacji.
