Paranormal Romance – Urban Fantasy – Shapeshifter's
October 25, 2013
Hailed as a major new talent in paranormal romance, Nalini Singh takes us deeper into the world of the Psy and the changelings in her latest extraordinary novel, where a gifted woman sees passion in her future - a passion that is absolutely forbidden by her kind...
Used to cold silence, Faith NightStar is suddenly being tormented by dark visions of blood and murder. A bad sign for anyone, but worse for Faith, an F-Psy with the highly sought after ability to predict the future. Then the visions show her something even more dangerous - aching need...exquisite pleasure. But so powerful is her sight, so fragile the state of her mind, that the very emotions she yearns to embrace could be the end of her.
Changeling Vaughn D'Angelo can take the form of either man or jaguar, but it is his animal side that is overwhelmingly drawn to Faith. The jaguar's instinct is to claim this woman it finds so utterly fascinating and the man has no argument. But while Vaughn craves sensation and hungers to pleasure Faith in every way, desire is a danger that could snap the last threads of her sanity. And there are Psy who need Faith's sight for their own purposes. They must keep her silenced - and keep her from Vaughn.
Visions of Heat is book two in the Psy-Changeling series by Nalini Singh. I adore this series, the characters, the plot, and world.
Visions of Heat is a re-read for me. I loved it the first time around and just as much the second. This series is so much fun to re-visit. In Visions of Heat get to learn what makes Faith and Vaughn tick and we get to see the changes they both go through, throughout the story.
Faith is an F-Psy. She is valued by her community and also a rarity among her people. I very much enjoyed watching her character growth, the changes she goes through, and how she becomes stronger then what she thought she was. The Psy seem to have this quiet strength among them.
Vaughn is more wild and possessive; because of his past. It makes him a very intriguing Alpha male to read about. I very much enjoyed his character growth and his all or nothing attitude.
As always Ms. Singh’s writing is superb and impressive. Each time I pick up one of her books I am sucked into the world and taken on a magnificent adventure. I very much enjoyed watching Faith and Vaughn come together and grow, as well as the mystery on who is killing people that they work to solve.
