Bonds of Justice
Max Shannon is a good cop, one of the best in New York Enforcement. Born with a natural shield that protects him against Psy mental invasions, he kno ...more
This book was okay for me, but Max and Sophia didn't really wow me. I liked the on going plot with Silence breaking down and I am really interested in Nikita. I really want Sascha and Nikita to make up and I want Sascha to have her mother's love. Still enjoyable but nothing super special. ...more
“Hello, my Max,” she whispered.
“Hello, my sweet, sexy Sophie.”
I loved Max and J-Psy Sophia together. Sophia is the sweetest girl who has suffered a lot as a child and now as an adult and a justice Psy, she knows that she does not have much time left being herself.
All J-Psys after a certain time they go crazy, or they die or they get “rehabilitation” and they are never the same. Since they have the power and can dive into the darkest minds, th ...more
Sophia Russo a J-Psy whom Max previously met while working his last case.
Sophia knows that she doesn’t have much time to live. S ...more
So...this book was not so good as the previous others. Yeah, it happened and I blame my (too) high hopes for this book to be really great or as great as the others in this series. I love PNR and with this story I just didn't feel that much of PNR going on. You have a human detective and a psy. They have two murder cases and one of course leads to a deadly situation that resolves in some action and good loving afterwards. I love that type of plots but with this book, it simply felt too real, too ...more
Bonds of Justice is a FANTASTIC addition to this AMAZING series. It's not my favorite as the plot and romance seemed to drag a little, but I went gaga over Max and loved the active role some of the DarkRiver members played in this book. As for the Psy Council…HOLY COW! The plot thickens! NOTHING IS WHAT IT SEEMS!!! *rubs hands excitedly*
Edit after reread: This is very strange, but this book didn't work for me even after the reread, but for completely different reasons. The romance was actually sweet and lovely for me this time, but the story and the case they were working on were extremely boring, plus that horrible psycho dude was, well, horrible! But at least I like them more as a couple than I did at first read :)
Although I love the Psy world and characters, this book I just couldn't get into.
First of all - I miss the usual ...more
Max and Sophia were chosen to work together to solve the special case. Both of them we ...more
“Will you remember me?”
His heart broke into a thousand pieces. “Always.”
No one knows much about the Justice-Psy. Except that they’ve always been part of the world’s justice system, able to retrieve and share memories from minds. They are quite rare, and have a short work span. Everyone among the justice world knows that they are only around a certain number of years, until they just disappear, never to be seen again. And Sophia Russo has been a J-Psy for twelve years. He...more
A buddy read at BB&B with my friends Joanita and Angela! We love our Psy and Changelings:):):)
Wow! I can not believe this is the 8th book in the series already! I think in the case of PNR this is a better fit, since every book deals with different couples within the same world, imaginatively created by Nalini Singh and richly populated with humans, changelings and Psy, all with their racial and cultural differences and all basically yearning for the same things, even if some of them ...more
WOW! This is another amazing installment in Singh’s phenomenal, original, and brilliantly crafted Psy-Changeling series. I just loved the relationship between sexy, possessive, protective alpha human cop Max Shannon and Justice-Psy Sophia Russo.
I’m continually impressed by the unique, spellbinding world-building, intriguing, complex characters that are impossible not to fall in love with, and the deeply emotional, passionate romance, and this is one of my favorites of ...more
And, that's a good thing because as creative and interesting as the world is; the romances can get a bit stale. The males are almost all the same - alpha's ...more
I love this series. Love the characters. Love the factions. Love the world building.
Amazing! Fascinating! Interesting!
Bonds of Justice is book eight in Psy-Changeling series by Nalini Singh. I had a wonderful time reading about Max and Sophia. We don’t see Max expect in Clay and Tally’s book Mine to Possess. It was a suprise to see him get his own book, but very rewarding, especially after being disappointed in the last book Blaze of Memory. We get a great plot, ...more
Bonds of Justice is still one of my favourite books in the series. I love both main characters.
Also, Nikita is awesome. And Krychek. And Arrows (what, you didn't think I'll miss this opportunity to mention them again?).
I loved Bonds of Justice the first time I read it. This time it was even better.
In short, there is the main story reserved only for this book. A number of Councillor Nikita Dun ...more
“You can drive.”
When he raised an eyebrow, she said, "I've had enough contact with human males to realize you seem to have a congenital inability to function while a female is at the wheel, and I'd rather your full attention be on the case.”
And with that I fall in love with Sophia. Thi ...more
Got a softer side of Nikita and I'm intrigued by Kaleb Krychek. He's been in the future Trinity books, but I'm looking forward to his story/romance. Getting his backstory.
As usual Angela Dawe's narration is excellent! ...more
Take care of my heart won’t you, Sophie? It’s a little odd having it outside my body—but I’m planning to steal yours to make up for it.
- Handwritten note from Max to Sophia
Third Reread: Still enjoyable... but I fast forwarded all the love/sex bits. That part is boring the third time around. I’m more interested in the vertical happenings. And when will River be part of the story again?
Second reread: I thought Max and Sophie happened a little quickly and without foundation but once that tr ...more

I'm going to start this review by saying that I absolutely adore Sophia and as a result there may be some gushing about her in this review.
As with 'Blaze of Memory' this book has a different feel to it compared to the ...more
And even if the conflict was resolved kinda fast and a bit chaotic after a huge buildup, I'm still happy with this addition to the series.
I'm loving how much the author manages to make every character just a little bit different so that every couple has its own believable dynamics. And I loved how the main conflict was ...more
Max is a fab fit for Sophia, and Sophia is one hell of a strong Psy. As a couple they don't pack the punch I would like but they are nice.
Loved seeing more of Lucas and Sascha in this.
How the Js are treated by the Psy council is deplorable and I'm hoping one of the new books will show things getting better for them since the fall of Silence. ...more
I enjoy Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling novels, if not for the romance, then for the overarching plot and action. The elements of Bonds of Justice that affect the overall plotline of the series can be summarized in a paragraph, and the action in a line.
So, the romance. Max and Sophia gush without much grounds from page one, literally between every line of dialogue so that I could imagine Paul Rudd and Cheryl Hines reading with relish. Imagine those ...more
“Max?”Like the previous one, this book involves a Psy and a human, no changelings. Obviously, I was a bit reluctant to read it but it was a great surprise because I ended up really liking the main characters. Max and Sophia were amazing together and individually. Nalini is a rock star.
“Will you remember me?”
His heart broke into a thousand pieces. “Always.”
Why 3 stars? Because I found the story quite boring, it was slow and I had to force myself to keep reading. Lucky me, I ...more
Know what I don't love?
The I'm-dying-and-there-is-nothing-anyone-can-do-about-it-just-kidding theme that the last several books have had in reference to the MCs. It's getting a little bit tired.
Just saying. ...more

“Show us the footage before your head explodes,” Lucas muttered, but his own cat was grinning to see Dorian so happy. The sentinel had been latent most of his life, unable to shift into leopard form. Now that he could, he did so at every opportunity. “Have you managed to catch a rabbit yet?”
A single eloquent finger. “Fuck you.”
Lucas snickered. “What about trying for a turtle?”
Dorian lunged out of the chair and went for Lucas’s throat.”
