Nalini Singh - Psy/Changeling and Guild Hunter Series
« on: August 24, 2007, 08:49:10 pm »
!!!Possible Spoilers!!!



:D  Here's my review of Caressed By Ice, hope you enjoy my amateur effort
lol =^)


   When Brenna Kincade of the Snow Dancer Pack was tortured, no
one thought she would be the same.  They were right. 

       Caressed By Ice is the third in the Psy/Changeling Series and
so far my expectations have far been exceeded with author Nalini
Singh.  Judd Lauren, former Psy Arrow, had dropped from the Net with
his family to escape Rehabilitation, which is worse than death.  Now
living with the Snow Dancer Pack, a pack of wolf changelings, Judd
just doesn't fit in.  His family has been more excepted, for they
show more promise of breaking Silence.  Silence has basically wiped
out emotions of any kind from the Psy race. A race known for their
cold machine like behavior.  Judd fears breaking Silence or having
any emotions.  We find out that by feeling, Judd's Psy powers could
end up hurting somebody, could even kill those he cares about and he
just won't risk that.  Especially when it comes to Brenna.  Brenna,
still having doubts about herself after experiencing the worse kind
of torture, seems to only want comfort from the one man who can't
give it to her.  And it seems that Santano Enrique, the Psy killer
who tortured Brenna, had done something with Brenna's brain,
unlocking a door that she can't shut.  Making her have Psy-like
qualities that she doesn't want.  Judd seems to be the only one she
can turn to when her nightmares haunt her.  The other pack mates,
including her brothers, don't trust Judd.  They still treat her as if
she is broken, or will break at any moment.  She can't stand that and
Judd, being the Psy that he is, tells it like it is and pulls no
punches.  The more Brenna tries to get Judd to break Silence, the
more he holds strong.  Judd knows that even though Santano Enrique
was killed during Brenna's rescue, someone is still after her.  It
seems that betrayal has come from the once place it shouldn't, inside
the pack.
   All the while Judd is also helping the Ghost.  The Ghost is
someone still connected to the Net but is trying to stop the Council
from taking Silence to far.  Talk of implants to the brains of the
Psy have more and more people worried of what will happen with the
future of the Psy race.  Even some members of the Council are
concerned with the progression of the implants.  Although none of the
Council members are trusting of each other, there are still
alliances.  Though how those alliances will turn out is just one of
the many reasons to keep up with this series. 
   I never knew that by reading Slave to Sensation, the first in
series, that I would be pulled deeply in to Singh's world of Psy and
Changelings.  The way that she has the two races not only fighting
with each other but also coming together is absolutely intriguing. 
With Caressed By Ice, we find out what happens with Brenna and get a
better look into the Lauren family.  We also get to see how the
characters from the first two books are doing and get hints of how
future books and characters may come along.  I'm loving this series
with every story that comes out. 
            Don't miss Caressed By Ice, out September 2007

I enjoyed the first two books as well.  This one seems like it will be another winner.

I just finished Caressed by Ice. So it is out in some stores already. Another very good psy/changeling book and I'm looking forward to the next.

I keep looking but I haven't found it yet. I suspect I'll just have to wait until the 6th. I'm way too impatient. :D

I've been told I really need to start reading these books. Maybe paperbackswap has them ....

I picked one up by chance and really enjoyed it. Enough to order the first in the series and search and destroy for the third. :)

I have read the first one and I really enjoyed it.  I have to make it out to a *real* bookstore as I have only been to the used bookstore this week - and they had no Nalini Singh books.  Maybe I will make it to the bookstore this weekend, but I keep looking at my TBR pile that has 30 books in it and I think maybe I should plow through some of those first.  Plus, I think my husband thinks he lives in a bookstore as it is.
But since you guys like them, I think I need to just go and get them to read.

deva, there's always room for one more book in the TBR pile.

I'm STILL looking for this book. I know it's out...it's eluding me! I'm not able to go look until Monday so I try not to think about it. ;)
