"Slave to sensation" is the first book in this saga, and it was published recently, in 2006. That story begins to acquaint the reader with a different world where three species live side by side, if not always in harmony. The Psy are a race with psychic powers and devoid of feelings; the changelings, shifters that embrace those feelings; and finally, the humans, less powerful and not always taken into account in the arithmetic of power. But what happens when a Psy killer on the loose that preys on changelings breaks the fragile equilibrium achieved by the two main races? That premise is the starting point to the story of Lucas, a powerful changeling, and Sacha, a cardinal Psy, two persons that should be enemies, but that soon realize that they can be much more.
"Slave to sensation" is also the beginning of an universe that Nalini Singh weaves even more consistently with each book, a strange world that makes sense and that ends up engaging the reader, and making him want to know what happens next. Thankfully, Nalini Singh has already written more books in the series ("Visions of heat", "Caressed by ice" and "Mine to possess") and is in the process of writing another, something you will fully appreciate after reading "Slave to sensation".
On the whole, I think that this book is a keeper, great on itself but even more valuable as the introduction of an outstanding series. Highly recommended...
Lucas feels something different about Sascha--she's not like other Psy. It doesn't take long for the dominant male to begin asserting his blatant interest in her in traditionally pack ways. Could her mysterious differences be the key his and a rival pack's have been looking for? A serial killer has targeted changeling women, and the packs believe the killer to be Psy. As a Psy with connections amongst her race, Sascha will become the only saving grace in a race against time to stop two opposing groups on the brink of war. Her and Lucas's efforts will bring them to some shocking realizations as well as some heated and sensually stimulating encounters.
The first impression of this romance was that it combined an awesome feel of not only paranormal elements, but sci-fi as well. Lucas's pack dynamics will ring somewhat similar to other paranormal romances, while having their own unique qualities at the same time, most notably their love for one another and family dynamics. The chilling addition of the Psy brings to mind a more futuristic sense with their sparse and utilitarian lifestyles. There are some very interesting twists to the plot that makes good use of the pacing throughout the book, making for a very hard to put down read.Read more ›
Not only does Singh allow her readers to get up close & personal with the world she’s created & the species that live there, she has created some characters that will stay with you for the long haul. I loved getting to know the main couple. The chemistry between them is topped only by their selflessness when it comes to one another. Not only are the characters well developed but they’re the type of people that you instinctively want to get to know better. The discoveries that they make about themselves and the world around them makes them even more endearing. Don’t get me wrong. The Changelings are the ultimate Alphas, but they haven’t lost their humanity through it all.
Singh creates a world that you want to get lost in, using it as a backdrop for this fast paced, hot & suspenseful story. I’ll definitely be avidly continuing with this series. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
