The “smoldering heat, epic romance, and awesome action” of Nalini Singh’s New York Times bestselling series continues as two Arrows find themselves caught in a chilling conspiracy that spans all three races…
Awakening wounded in a darkened cell, their psychic abilities blocked, Aden and Zaira know they must escape. But when the lethal soldiers break free from their mysterious prison, they find themselves in a harsh, inhospitable landscape far from civilization. Their only hope for survival is to make it to the hidden home of a predatory changeling pack that doesn’t welcome outsiders.
And they must survive. A shadowy enemy has put a target on the back of the Arrow squad, an enemy that cannot be permitted to succeed in its deadly campaign. Aden will cross any line to keep his people safe for this new future, where even an assassin might have hope of a life beyond blood and death and pain. Zaira has no such hope. She knows she’s too damaged to return from the abyss. Her driving goal is to protect Aden, protect the only person who has ever come back for her no matter what.
This time, even Aden’s passionate determination may not be enough—because the emotionless chill of Silence existed for a reason. For the violent, and the insane, and the irreparably broken…like Zaira.
~ 4.5 Shards of Hope Stars ~
Shards of Hope is book fourteen in the Psy-Changeling series by Nalini Singh. It’s a gripping read.
The Psy-Changeling world is full of passionate characters and depth. It’s vast and unique. Each individual has their on varying talents, skills, challenges and issues. While the reader enjoys all of this we are also given action, suspense, surprises, pain, romance and hope.
If you have been reading the series in order then you know that Silence has fallen. Now all the races Human, Psy, Changeling, and the Forgotten must try to find a way to work together or implode, but their is an unknown group out there trying to break what little peace these races have.
So much happens in this book and it should be experienced for itself. Both Zaira and Aden, have been seen in previous books, but not like this. Their growth and the changes they see in themselves and those around them are believable and intense. These two are try to build a better life for the older Arrows and the new generation now that Silence has fallen. They also must discover who is trying to harm the Arrow Squad and all the other races. Just watching these two. WOW!
Shards of Hope takes this series to a whole new aspect. So much has happened and changed throughout the series, that you can’t help but feel like you are in their world. This is one series I look forward to each new installment and recommend for all Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance fans. I’m excited to see what comes next.
