First off, let me say that I'm completely biased when it comes to Hawke, so don't expect this to be a sensible and impartial "review". ;)


Hawke alone deserves 5 stars, and I'll just be honest and say that I'd love this book even if the plot was utter crap - which it isn't, of course.

I became obsessed feel in love with Hawke the moment I met him in Slave to Sensation, the first book in the series:

I have been looking forward to Hawke and Sienna book since book one. Annnnd I was not disappointed. I knew going into this book that Hawke's "mate" died when they were children and so he is not suppose to be able to mate again. As wolves only get one mate. So my only problem with this book was the confusion over Hawke and Sienna's mating. I was prepared for Hawke to just love her or for him to figure out that Rissa was

Holy shit this was good.

And thank FUCK.


Because I had been lusting, pining, and rendered almost UN-functionable during the wait and build up for this books release.

So much so, in fact, that I was worried that my too high expectations would doom the book to failure.

But silly me, I should have known Nalini Singh would blow me away as usual.


Seriously, she is the alpha-PNR goddess.

3.5 stars

If it was any other couple I would say it was a good story and a great addition and give it 4/5 stars.
But this book and Heart of Obsidian are the ones I’ve been waiting for - this one in particular because of how many glimpses we got of Hawke and Sienna since book 1.
It was building and building and building towards something which ultimately left me disappointed.

Why am I dissatisfied? Well, Hawke didn’t give me all the good vibes I was waiting for.

Unpopular opinion alert: after waiting forever for Hawke's book, this disappointed me.

actually, I never said I was sorry. Don't put words in my mouth, you lunatic!

Anyway, why didn't I like it?
First, there was a secondary love story going on between two of the possibly most boring beings on the planet. Their story was like watching paint dry. And, not the fun kind of watching paint dry. Plain white wall paint.

Secondly, it had a creepy feel to it, in a pedo-bear way.

A little background…I picked up Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changling series on a whim back in 2006 with Slave to Sensation…and when I was finished with that book, I was immediately drawn to Hawke’s story and my fervent hope that eventually A) it’d get written soon and B) his HEA was Sienna Lauren who was 16 at the time.

Favorite Quote: “You sure you want to play with the wolf, baby?”

Favorite Quote #2: The crowd was chanting, “kiss, kiss, kiss” when Hawke walked inside.

That was when Sienna learned the meaning of the term alpha.

Favorite Quote #3: "Scared?" Hawke’s smile held no humor. "You should be baby." Then he kissed her and it was no tender exploration, no playful tease. This was the kiss of a man who knew precisely what he wanted.

5+ stars – Paranormal Romance

WOWZA! The most anticipated installment in the phenomenal Psy-Changeling series definitely delivers the goods and lives up to the hype. It’s an intense, passionate, and emotional epic romance with smoldering sensuality and thrilling action that is pure tribute to Hawke fanatics. It satisfied my super high expectations and then some. I was completely and utterly captivated by every word from beginning to end, and my only complaint is that I didn’t want it to be over.

Kiss of Snow is book #10 in Nalini Singh’s stunning the Psy-Changeling Series. I have been waiting for a very long time for Hawke’s story, every since he was introduced in Slave to Sensation, the 1st book in the Series. Somehow I had always hoped that he would get together with Sienna Lauren…..and yes, after 9 books, I finally got my wish.

I've been waiting to read this one for a long time now! And what I found is well... rather disappointing.
I was expecting a lot from Hawk. Or well, a lot more than this. Sienna wasn't too bad, but I still wanted more from her.

I really didn't feel any chemistry between them and their story was of no particular interest. I was more excited about the background plot than about their love thingie. It's the only reason I gave this story 2.5 stars (3 GR ones), because the ov

This series is just so freaking good! I've been waiting on Sienna and Hawke for so long. But Sienna was too young and he was the alpha of the pack. Nalini pulled this off with perfection..without it feeling creepy in any way.

A wonderful book about how the Psy X Sienna tamed the Wolf Alpha Hawke. We have been waiting and hoping for those two to eventually figure out they are made for each other for many, many books already! And we all knew it would be hard, painful, emotional, sexy as hell, sizzling, a battle of the sexes, memorable, and ooooo so satisfying once it arrived!

I've lost count how many times I've read this book. Of course it's my favorite in the series. It's Hawke! Hawke! HAWKE!!

I don't know why I've not reviewed this. Better late than never.

When I started to read the Psy-Changeling series, I knew it would become one of my favorites. It began with Lucas's story and that really captivated me. Hawke and Sienna were mentioned continuously as the series progressed. Seeing glimpses of them from time to time, in every book, the anticipation for their own boo
Taking a long break between reading all the books in this series is highly advised. I was on a reading marathon and read only books in this series but after awhile (after 9 books or so) I didn't feel the 'special' and unique vibe that this stories bring. So I took a month-ish break from them and what would you know, now that I've picked up this series again, I get the hype around them and I'm so happy that I'm finally able to enjoy them as much as I did when I first started this series.

One of the most anticipated books this year is Kiss of Snow (book #10) by Nalini Singh. Nalini has come a long way with her Psy-Changeling series. I can still remember the first time I picked up Slave to Sensation back in 2006, knowing I found an author I’d stick with for life. Nalini is an incredibly talented author, and if you’re not reading her books, you’re missing out on something special.

I read Kiss of Snow a few months ago and was on the fence whether or not I should review it. The reason
Astrid - The Bookish Sweet Tooth
Hawke and Sienna are my favorites along with Lucas and Sascha. I loved Hawke, he was frustrating and sexy and bossy in equal measures. And Sienna was perfection - this is the kind of heroine I adore. She was strong and held her own with the man who would not accept orders from anyone else.
Reread in January 2021.

I have been waiting to read this book since the beginning of the series. I had to read 9 books before finally being able to get my hands on this baby and I do not regret it. At all.


Kiss of Snow was everything I wanted it to be. Everything. Hawke and Sienna were perfect for each other and their story was beautiful. Oh my god, did I swoon. Seriously, Hawke is so deliciously hot and so freaking dominant, I want one for myself. Sienna is one lucky lady! She's not t

I think it was one of my favourites from the entire series so far. After Brenna and Judd I guess. Because Sienna rocked!! She was such an awesome heroine, I sooo loved her development!! Hawke was fine, sure, but all my praise goes to this young woman who was not only super badass, but also smart and just simply fabulous. And I loved them together.
Oh, and the little revelation at the end, why the book is called what it's called? It melted my heart a little.

I mean, this was a good romance book guys. I'd been waiting for the Hawke/Sienna pair-up for a while, and I just really enjoyed the dynamic between them, Hawke always reminded me of Robert Redford a bit in my mind so you know...good stuff.

The sub-plot between Walker and whatserface was OK (yeah I forgot her name so clearly had an impact haha), but the world plot with the Psy attacks and Ghost, that stuff stays interesting. That's why I like these books. They're TOTAL lady porn romance books, but

I want to read more books about Hawke and Sienna. I feel like their story could go on and on and never get old or boring. It makes me wish they had their own series like Elena and Raphael do in the Guild Hunter series :P

For all who worried about Sienna's character in this one, let me assure you, she rocks. She is strong, stubborn, feisty, wise, intelligent, fiercely loyal and she loves with
Ah, Hawke and Sienna’s book… It has been the most anticipated release of the series for me. All that tension between them and the curiosity of how they would end up together (with him already having had a mate) has made for a very long wait. While this book didn’t exactly rock my world the way I thought it would, it is still definitely worth the wait.

I really enjoyed Sienna in this book. She got tired of the games and she took a stand. She didn’t make unreasonable demands of Hawke, but she let h
