URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Psy-Changling 10: Kiss of Snow - Nalini Singh

Release Date: 11/08/11


Since the moment of her defection from the PsyNet and into the SnowDancer wolf pack, Sienna Lauren has had one weakness. Hawke. Alpha and dangerous, he compels her to madness. Hawke is used to walking alone, having lost the woman who would?ve been his mate long ago. But Sienna fascinates the primal heart of him, even as he tells himself she is far too young to handle the wild fury of the wolf. Then Sienna changes the rules and suddenly, there is no more distance, only the most intimate of battles between two people who were never meant to meet. Yet as they strip away each other?s secrets in a storm of raw emotion, they must also ready themselves for a far more vicious fight . . . A deadly enemy is out to destroy SnowDancer, striking at everything they hold dear, but it is Sienna?s darkest secret that may yet savage the pack that is her home . . . and the alpha who is its heartbeat . . .


Whilst I’m a bit of a stranger to this series, I was given a catch up by friends who are fans so I was pretty well placed to pick up and see where the tale took the reader. What unfurls is a story that is primarily emotional as we get to delve more into the aspects of the principle series players as they take romances to a new level as well as developing new attachments.

It’s cleverly written the cast intriguing and for me, whilst the overall story was mainly about them, you can see that there are some developments that will be key in future outings as well as laying the foundations for future sub plots. All in a nicely written story although I wouldn’t say that you can really pick this up and start here unless you are lucky enough to have aficionado’s to help bring you up to speed. From a strangers point of view this tale wasn’t just filler but one that developed the characters to a greater depth rounding off some of the combat edges to give you a more personal view and as such means, that when time as well as budget allows, I will read the rest.

I've been told I would like this series by a few people - my pile of unread books is growing by the day though! lol - will have to add this one to my wish list now!
