Review--Shards of Hope

Shards of Hope (Psy-Changeling, #14)Shards of Hope by Nalini Singh
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book, and am in awe of Ms. Singh's ability to continue to craft a complex and involving universe in her long running Psy-Changeling series. Too many paranormal franchises lose steam after a while, running out of original material.  Not Psy-Changeling. The characters and society evolve and change in the finest science fiction fashion, and the world building continues to be a major part of the joy of reading these books.

Then there's the romance. It's steamy. It's intense. It'll bring the feels. I have a special fondness for stories about the psy characters with their repressed emotions, because you just know when they let loose it's going to be like pon farr to the nth degree. And it is in the story of Aden & Zaira, both Arrows--highly trained assassin/enforcers trying to navigate their way through the post-Silence world.

If you've never read the Psy-Changeling novels, I would not recommend starting with Shards of Hope, but if you start at the beginning I predict you'll want to binge-read this series to catch up on the roller-coaster ride of life in this multi-species world so much like our own, and yet so fascinatingly different.
