Branded by Fire (Psy-Changeling #6)
Though DarkRiver sentinel Mercy is feeling the pressure to mate, she savagely resists when Riley Kincaid, a lieutenant from the SnowDancer pack, tries to possess her. The problem is not simply th ...more
Riley and Mercy were fan-fucking-tastic! A luitenant and a sentinel for two opposite packs, they couldn't stand each other even though there was a massive sexual attraction in the equasion. In the beginning of the book (and my, this was a shock to the system), I think it w ...more
Finally, I had some free time to continue reading this fantastic series. And as per usual I really enjoyed reading this story or any story in this series so far. This one was a bit different since we don't get a changeling and psy couple but two changelings trying to find their luck in love. All I can say is that I really hoped this would be a fantastic read and thankfully my hopes have been heard. :)
Riley Kincaid, a Wolf Changeling and the Senior Lieutenant of the SnowDancer wolf pack
Mercy Smith, a Leopard Changeling and a Sentinel of the DarkRiver leopard pack
- both dominant and totally into each other!!!
I loved this book. Riley is awesome, sexy, hot and sooo alpha!!!
And Mercy…wow, I adored this kick-ass, independent, take no shit dominant woman!!!!!
The raw passion, the sexual tension, their ...more
Another AMAZING addition to my FAVORITE paranormal series!!!
I LOVED so much about this book! I LOVED the hero and heroine (Mercy has become one of my all-time favorite heroines), the banter, the romance, the cast of secondary characters, the varying points-of-view, and the complex word building. However–and I can't believe I'm saying this–I felt there was too much sex in this book. Gasp! I found the abundance of sex distracting. In fact, I was skimming pages ...more
September 2011 - Review to come... But just a few thoughts, for now... This is probably my favourite of the series, so far, along with Dorian's and Ashaya's book and the first book with Lucas and Sascha (which will always have a special place in my heart). I adore the DarkRiver alpha couple. *sighs* And I loved Mercy and Riley. LOVING this series!!!
March 2012 - Finally wrote my review.

oh yeah, the sparks were flying!
The romance in this book is between Mercy, a female leopard changeling:
And, Riley, a male wolf changeling:
what the hell, let's use Joe. It's hard to find a specimen more perfect!
They are different "animals" that don't really mix. But, they also have a huge attraction for each other and have to work together a lot because of ...more
A buddy read with Jo and Angela at the PNR hot corner of BB&B
Wow!!! I have to say - Nalini not only knows how to create an imaginative and fascinating world, but she can create a chemistry between her characters that sizzles and sets the pages on fire!!!
In the cold world of Psy and the hot world of the Changelings, the Humans have been relegated to a tertiary place in the world order. ANd not surprisingly, they resent it. Beginning with the previous book, the Human Alliance has ...more
Nalini Singh delivers yet another exceptional addition to the superb Psy-Changeling series. I’ve read all of the six (currently released) books in the series over the past couple of weeks, and it’s amazing that they keep getting better each time and that there are still so many wondrous possibilities for the future. One of the main things that makes this series so fantastic is the terrific balance of unique, spellbinding world building and steamy, sensual romance betw ...more
I love strong characters, I can't help myself. It's hard for me to really like a weak woman and it's impossible to like idiots (and that's kind of what I've been getting lately). So you have no idea how happy I am to finally find a badass couple!
This couple is great, the plot is wonderfully captivating and, as always, the world builder is off the charts. What more can you want from a UF?
It's definitely the best book in this series (so far)!
Mercy doesn’t take shit from anyone. It’s one of the reasons why she is so damn good as a sentinel. But with her strength comes scrutiny. Gender roles come into play in this book and even though Riley initially wanted a domestic mate, he can’t seem to stay away from Mercy’s fel ...more
I'd read Branded by Fire before, and I must said this book is one of the best of Psy Changeling series! Beside Play of Passion and Kiss of Snow. What can I said? Kincaid Brothers are sexy as hell and Hawke, their alpha more sexy than hell, LOL!
And Riley and Mercy are my favorite couple beside Elena-Raphael !
So, when Nalini held a contest to support her at DA BWAHA (vote for her book ), I'm never imagined I will win. I just want to vote, because Archangel's Kiss is my top ten rea ...more
They don't seem to fit together do they?
Much better huh?
I LOVE Mercy and Riley. They are prepared to fight for what they want. Tbh what I like most in this book is that they seem to first get to know each other and then start to be attracted. I know that the mating bond gives a metaphysical excuse to insta-love but ...more
I really liked this installment in the Psy-Changeling series. I liked that the relationship took off early in the book ... oh boy, did it ever ... and that the couple was pretty open and honest about their nearly impossible future.
Mercy is a leopard sentinal. Riley is a wolf lieutenant. They've been partnered to watch over a p ...more
How could I ever forgot why this is one of my top fav books?!
Seriously, this book was just beyond words, I do understand now why I wasn't able to write a review about it the first time I read it; but now, after reading it for a second time, I just feel like I NEED to do a review. Does that make any sense for you?LOL, it's weird, first I felt I didn't want to write it because I would never be able to show you guys in words how much I felt with this book but ...more
This is not a bad rating, I actually quite enjoyed this book, just not as much as I thought I would. It started off really well, I mean, it was hot and what a great introduction! Sucked me right in. But, after a while, I just found the story lacking.
The love story wasn't as good as usual, sure this time it's two dominant changelings, so I knew it was going to be different, but it was just too different for me, I guess. Riley and Mercy got involved right away and I don't mind that but i ...more
12/09/2016 Buddy reading my favorite series with the wonderful Choko and Angela!
“But sometimes, the human heart loves so deeply that it overcomes the objections of the animal.”
Things have been peaceful lately for the DarkRiver cats and the SnowDancer wolves. But they knew it wouldn’t last and when a changeling researcher is kidnapped, Mercy a DarkRiver Sentinel and Riley a SnowDancer lieutenant must work together to find him before it’s too late.
Other strange happenings are also occurr...more
Plus, Mercy and Riley burn up the pages. I've said in a lot of re ...more
★★★★ (This is a review of the audiobook.) Angela Dawe continues to narrate the wonderful Psy-Changeling series, and with the sixth book she delivers her usual excellent job of distinguishing the male and female characters. However, I must admit I’m impressed with the way she does the children; there is innocence in her tone that comes across. She is one of the readers I seek out when choosing my next audiobook.
Willow, a lynx cub who is traumatized when her brother, Nash, a MIT student is kidnap...more
Some of the books in this series were low on the steam factor. What they all had was wonderful romance, suspense, good characters, interesting dialogue, excellent writing that kept me glued to my kindle. This book had all of that stuff and HEAT HEAT HEAT!
Riley is a lieutenant for SnowDancer, and Mercy is a sentinel for DarkRiver. Two changeling groups that are allies, but with Riley being a wolf and Mercy a leopard it presents ...more
Mercy started to remind me too much of Kaderin.
I am all for female empowerment. I am all for stories that show us that being a woman is not an automatic restriction for anything we want to achieve.
Over the course of the past five books, we've been told how intelligent the changelings are, in spite of the general perception that they are a part-animal race and, therefore, not as clever as the Psy's. I won't dispute it. Although, I ha ...more
3 “Wildfire & Solid, Rooted Earth” Stars.
It is the year 2080 and the silent war is still being fought. Between the Psy and the Changelings. But there is a factor that they hadn’t taken into consideration. The humans or in this case the Human Alliance.
Be it humans, Psy or Changelings neither likes change. But is some cases change ...more
Sorry Clay, but Riley has usurped your place as my favcourite Changeling. You can still be my favourite DarkRiver guy, but Riley *growls* so HAWT!
This is hands down my favourite book in the series (so far!) not only because Riley is so hot that I spontaneously orgasm when I hear his name, but because Mercy was pretty damn awesome as well. She was a strong female lead who really made Riley work for her affections. I loved her! But apart from being an ass kick ...more
La historia de Mercy y Riley me llamaba mucho la atencion, no solo porque la protagonista era la unica centinela del clan DarkRiver sino tambien porque era el primer libro de esta saga que tendria a un lobo como protagonista, ya que hasta el momento solo habiamos conocido las historias del clan de los leopardos.
Admito que los primeros capitulos me resultaron un poco lentos, pero desde el momento en el que la pareja protagonista empieza a interactuar se vuelve mucho mas fluido, en esta ocasion la ...more
As for Branded by Fire, this is my second time reading it. I appreciate it so much more now. Don't get me wrong, I loved it the first time I'd read it too. However, this time I paid attention to all ...more
Throughout the 17 months since deciding not to continue with this series, I have continued to see very positive reviews for the books in this series, and lively discussions from its legion of fans. Because I liked the ...more
I will admit to not loving Mercy as much as Riley. I think it's because they are both so dominate. I felt like I needed to pick a side so I did. Riley. But I love the characters in this book and series. More than the other books in this series, this one spent more time with other characters and I loved it. The surprise for Lucas and Sascha, the moments with Judd, the time with Vaughn and his Red, Faith, -- all so wonderful. I loved it all.
This world ...more
I loved the plot, the subplots, the world-building, the characters, their dynamic and chemistry, I mean everything.
I'd love to write a review filled with all kinds of superlatives this book deserves, but got no time, gotta read the next one.
