Author: Nalini Singh
Series: Psy-Changeling #8
Published: July 6, 2010

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Rating: 5 stars

Goodreads Blurb:
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 knows he has little chance of advancement within the Psy-dominated power structure. The last case he expects to be assigned to is that of a murderer targeting a Psy Councilor's closest advisors. And the last woman he expects to compel him in the most sensual of ways is a Psy on the verge of catastrophic mental fracture.

Darcy's Review:
This was a great addition to this series. The couple in this book were great and sometimes when there is no changeling in the couple it falls flat. Max and Sophia couldn't be more different from each other, Max human, Sophia a J-Psy, a category that we haven't heard much about until now.

Max, a no non-sense police detective, that seems to be involved in some of the more heinous crimes. Sophia, as a J-Psy, would meet criminals and go through their minds and get the details of their crimes. Their paths cross due to a serial killer that is so bad there are no words to describe. Sophia has problems of her own, related to being a J-Psy that make her a wild card. Max from the start is taken with Sophia. Their work together becomes more and more interesting the more time they spend together. Max also has ties to the changeling community which lets us check in with them. The things we learn within them set the stage for much bigger things to come. We also see some movement in the story with the unrest within the Councilor's arena.

I can't wait to see what happens next!!

I LOVE this series and have read all the books out so far! This one was not my favorite. I am anxiously waiting for Hawke's book (hopefully with Sienna - do I remember her name correctly) as the heroine. :)

I too am waiting not so patiently for Hawk's book and like you Chrizette I am hoping he ends up with Sienna. Singh just released the tentative title for it and it is Kiss of Snow. I think a lot of us are waiting for this one.
