Book Description: . 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…
Captivation: This book is a fun, entertaining, and for a short period of time, emotional read. It took me a few pages to really get into the book, but once I was, I was truly captivated!
Sizzle: The sizzle in this book isn’t the best I’ve read from Singh, but it’s not bad, just more discussion and narrator thinking than actual intimacy scenes.
Romance: I really like Silver and Valentin’s story. The bear personalities in combination with the only semi-psy personality of the Mercant family are really both fun and sweet. The development of this story romance is fairly quick, but the plot keeps the story and romance changing and evolving in a good way.
Enjoyment: I liked this book, but did have moments where I wondered what happened to the mystery of the original plot. The original plot popped up here and there, resolving in a rather quick and unimpressive manner. The story really seems to be a refresher on the continuing series conflicts along with the building of this new relationship and intro to the Mercants and the Bears.
Literacy: The editing was rather well done in this book, though I caught a few oddities. Nothing at all major or distracting.
Overall, Fans of the Psy-Changeling series will definitely enjoy this book and the new personalities it brings into play. This is a really well done, fun, entertaining read, and introduces a new light into the on-going series.
