The Psy-Changeling world has undergone a staggering transformation and now stands at a crossroads. The Trinity Accord promises a new era of cooperation between disparate races and groups. It is a beacon of hope held together by many hands: old enemies. New allies. Wary loners.
But a century of distrust and suspicion can't be so easily forgotten and threatens to shatter Trinity from within at any moment. As rival members vie for dominance, chaos and evil gather in the shadows and a kidnapped woman's cry for help washes up in San Francisco, while the Consortium turns its murderous gaze toward a child who is the embodiment of change, of love, of piercing hope: a child who is both Psy . . . and changeling.
To find the lost, protect the vulnerable and save Trinity no one can stand alone. This is a time of loyalty across divisions, of bonds woven into the heart and the soul, of heroes known and unknown standing back to back and holding the line. But is an allegiance of honour even possible with traitors lurking in their midst?
Singh (Shards of Hope) once again delivers an epic delight with a large ensemble cast in the 15th Psy-Changeling paranormal, which wraps up several significant story threads. The war is over and the psychic Psy, shape-shifting changelings, and ordinary humans have all begun the slow, tortuous process of learning to live together without fear. Fear is the primary motivation for those who oppose the tentative peace. Naya, the toddler daughter of Sascha and Lucas (from 2006's Slave to Sensation), is at the center of the latest maelstrom. She is the first of her kind, a changeling with Psy powers. When a plot to kidnap Naya is uncovered, beloved faces from the DarkRiver, SnowDancer, Forgotten, and Psy populations all play integral role in protecting her as well as assisting the BlackSea changelings in tracking lost members who have gone missing. No single couple or group is favored in this sweeping, somewhat futuristic fantasy. Romance, family, and loyalty are celebrated even as the dangers of a brave new world without war are explored.
Just the beginning
So I have been waiting to read Nalini Singh's latest addition to the Psy/Changeling for a while now. I was trying to wait till the next book had a release date buuuuuuut I couldn't do it. I had to read it!
Allegiance of Honour is the 15th book in the series and I know what your thinking, that's a long series. I promise you it is worth the read. Nalini Singh has created an incredibly diverse universe and every book and short story adds to it but keeps you fully immersed. Each book introduces new people for you to fall in love with.
Allegiance of Honour doesn't introduce a new couple it takes everything you love and gives you more. You become part of the history, a piece of the new society that is being created in this amazing Psy/Changeling world. It's about developing the existing stories and laying the foundation for her next series.
Silver Silence is the next book in this universe and the start of Series Two in the Psy/Changeling world and it is set to give you more action, more romance, more angst and more characters to fall in love with.
A 5 STAR read and I highly recommend that, if you like your gritty paranormal, then Nalini Singh is the Author for you.
