More lists with this book...
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
Riley is an Alpha ShowDancer, i.e a Wolf and Mercy is an Alpha DarkRiver, i.e. a leopard. They are both strong and they both do not back down.
Can a cat and a wolf mix? Especially when they are both so dominant? And above all since they do not like submitting?
“Not so fast are we, wolfie?”
“I was trying,” he said, blocking her next set of blows with his arms, “not to hurt you.”
“I’m not a frickin’ princess”
Since there are no Alpha unmated ...more
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!!!!!
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. :)
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
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
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.
Also reviewed at: Lady Jayne's Reading Den
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 got ...more
Currently rereading -03/07/2018 - 04/07/2018 - BUMPED UP TO A WHOOPING 5★
Still 5 stars.
As is being released soon I felt that a reread was in order.
The first time I read Mercy & Riley's story I said the following;
"Up until I love every single book of this series and they all have a rating of at least 4 & 5 Stars. This one unfortunately and it was a tough choice to make."
The second time around I can trul ...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
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
Re-reading my favorite series again ;-)
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...more
Mercy and Riley held up well on a re-read. I love them as a couple and their beginning was fantastic.
I was starting to feel like most of the books were getting to be slightly the same. Psy breaking the silence, changeling knowing how to express themselves and the Psy or human not knowing exactly how to process but giving in eventually. But this book is Changeling-Changeling and both are extremely dominant which made for some extremely steamy and ho ...more
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 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)!
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 ...more
It was great to get into this world again (after a couple of months pause). Mercy was smart, tough and badass; Riley was a damaged grumpy chunk of a man; two of them had the hottest chemistry. I'm super intrigued how the series develops, so I'll jump into the next one today.
Both Mercy and Riley are dominants with some preconceived notions and due to this we see some misunderstandings and tensions. The pair have sizzling chemistry and set the pages a flame. One of my favourites in the series.
Love the kids who add to many of the scenes. ...more
I am loving the progress from story to story. I enjoy seeing past book characters as well as new characters. For such a dominant wolf, Riley was more sensitive than I was expecting. I liked that about him.
Mercy is also a dominant female and unfortunately she came off too hard to me. Her expectations seemed to be really high as well. She wanted a more dominant male but there seemed to be a fin ...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
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
Plus, Mercy and Riley burn up the pages. I've said in a lot of re ...more
