New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh returns to her extraordinary Psy-Changeling world with a story of wild passion and darkest betrayal...
Control. Precision. Family. These are the principles that drive Silver Mercant. At a time when the fledgling Trinity Accord seeks to unite a divided world, with Silver playing a crucial role as director of a worldwide emergency response network, wildness and chaos are the last things she needs in her life. But that’s exactly what Valentin Nikolaev, alpha of the StoneWater bears, brings with him.
Valentin has never met a more fascinating woman. Though Silver is ruled by Silence—her mind clear of all emotion—Valentin senses a whisper of fire around her. That’s what keeps him climbing apartment buildings to be near her. But when a shadow assassin almost succeeds in poisoning Silver, the stakes become deadly serious…and Silver finds herself in the heart of a powerful bear clan.
Her would-be assassin has no idea what their poison has unleashed...
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
We swooned for Nalini Singh's strong but gentle alpha hero, Valentin Nikolaev, who woos his heroine carefully and respectfully. When emotionless Psy Silver Mercant is poisoned, bear-shifter Valentin takes over her protection—and finds himself falling for a woman who (supposedly) is incapable of loving him back. Silver Silence is the perfect starting point for readers looking to enter Singh's richly imagined science-fiction world without having read her previous 15 novels, but it will appeal to the series' longtime fans too.
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.

This was one of the best!
I have followed this series from the start and wait for each new story. I loved that this one had fresh new characters mixed in with humor, love, intrigue and story building for the future. I was sad when it ended, I wanted a lot more! This is a must read!
What a ride, I laughed, cried ( I did). I love this series, we revisited some old friends while meeting new ones. I liked “Silver’s” story. There was action, mystery and romance. I Have already preordered the next book. Thank you Ms. Singh for a wonderful book
Leopards, Wolves, & Bears OH MY!
Heads up if you are looking for a synopsis type review this is not it. Just my thoughts on why you might love Silver Silence.
New readers can definitely enjoy this book as it is a new arc of the Psy/Changeling Series called Trinity without reading the books 1- 15 (full novels), but this book will mean that much more to you if you go back and read from the beginning.
Slave to Sensation (Psychangling Book 01) buy it from your favorites retailer.
Thus far we have met many different types of changelings, and I didn't think that I could love any changeling more than the leopards and wolves, but these Bears are something else. What I love even more are all new characters that we are meeting i.e. Stasha, Nova, Pieter, Pavel, Yakov, and lots of others.
This book has a great main line romance between Silver and Valentin. They crack me up at every turn. The plot line will have you wondering where this world is going and I absolutely can't wait for the next book.
The chemistry is so present between the two characters as they come from two different worlds and try to navigate finding a way to make a relationship work.
If you are a fan of Nalini Singh you got no reason not to wanna read this book. If you are new to the Nalini Singh world and this is your entrance book jump on in and join us. I promise the Kool-Aid we sip is very tasty.
It's a great romance with sexy scenes, but not compared to others not as racy as some authors get which I kinda love about Nalini. You love romance novel, great storytelling, and a series that you can jump into then give this one a chance.
