APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Fiji-born New Zealand author Nalini Singh is one of the most prolific and original voices in the paranormal romance genre. The 16th instalment in her Psy/Changeling series adds intriguing richness to her fantastical realm. Emotionless Psy Silver and bear-shifter Valentin—whose inner natures are entirely at odds—find themselves allied in the search for Silver’s would-be assassin; the relationship that unfolds is a maze of psychological complexity. As always, Singh delivers suspense, a tightly crafted plot and deeply engrossing character development. Silver Silence is a perfect starting point for readers looking to enter Singh's richly imagined world, but it'll also appeal to longtime fans.
Singh (Allegiance of Honor) opens a subseries (which she refers to as "season two") of her near-future Psy/Changeling saga with a powerful examination of what happens in the wake of a new world order. Ever since childhood, psy Silver Mercant, scion of the powerful, secretive Mercant family, has held to the protocol called Silence: all of her emotions trained away to simple efficiency. Her commitment to this ideal is tested by Valentin Nikolaev, a large, lovable Russian bear changeling who delights in poking at her defenses. Valentin has many responsibilities: as alpha of the StoneWater bears, he is the heart of his clan, and is trying to repair a damaging rift caused by his father. He's deeply attached to Silver, and when an attempt is made on her life in Moscow, he moves heaven and earth to keep her safe and find the ones responsible. With the Human Alliance making waves and prohuman sentiments gaining political ground, it's up to Valentin, Silver, and their loved ones to keep the fledgling Trinity Accord, a compact of agreement among the psy, changelings, and humans, from being perverted for the gain of any one group. Fans of earlier Psy/Changeling books will delight in the return of familiar faces as well as the perfect blend of humor, action, and intrigue, but new readers will be at sea.
Absolutely love this series Excellent story I throughly enjoyed reading it
Singh-ing her praises
I love Nalinis work, always. I’d (and do) happily spend money on her books knowing full well it’s gonna be a great story. The story line keeps you interested from page one all the way to the end it was really hard to put down.
A great read
This is the first book I have read by Nalini Singh. I found myself being introduced to a brand new and intriguing world full of Psy (psychics), Changelings (shapeshifters) and humans. It has dark and sinister elements with the romance shining through, sneaky like a cat.
This was an enjoyable read and left me wanting to know more about this world. I will definitely wanting to read more books by Nalini Singh.
It is also a book that doesn't leave a new-to-the-fold reader feeling like they've missed something for not reading the earlier books. It is enjoyable for a new reader to the psy-changeling world as for a longtime fan.
I received a free, advance copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest, unbiased review.
