The fate of millions of lives hangs in the balance in this new Psy-Changeling Trinity novel from New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh...
Kidnapped as a young girl, her psychic powers harnessed by a madman, Memory lives a caged and isolated existence . . . until she comes face-to-face with a wolf. Labelled an empath by her bad-tempered rescuer, Memory knows that her 'gift' is nothing so bright. It is a terrible darkness that means she will always be hunted.
But Memory is free now and she intends to live. A certain growly wolf can just deal with it.
Alexei prefers to keep his packmates at bay, the bleak history of his family a constant reminder that mating, love, hope is not for him. But Memory, this defiant and fearless woman who stands toe-to-toe with him awakens the most primal part of his nature - and soon, he must make a choice: risk everything or lose Memory to a murderous darkness that wants to annihilate her from existence . . .

Once again immersing readers in a richly imagined world where psychic Psy, shape-shifting Changelings, and humans coexist in uneasy harmony, Singh's third Psy Changeling Trinity novel (after Ocean Light) delights with lovingly drawn characters. Memory was eight years old when she was kidnapped by a serial killer, who held her in isolation for years so he could abuse her unique empathic gift. Alexei, wolf Changeling and lieutenant of the powerful SnowDancer pack, has isolated himself emotionally from his pack, operating under the impression he's cursed. When he discovers a devastated Memory deep in the heart of SnowDancer territory, he feels called to protect the small, strong survivor at all costs. This slightly futuristic love story blends well with the larger plot focused on a society rediscovering itself. Familiar faces from previous books are artfully woven in to welcome returning readers, and if the story feels a bit familiar too, it's still a fine serving of literary comfort food.
