A woman without a past becomes the pawn of a man who controls her future... Dev Santos discovers her unconscious and battered, with no memory of who she is. All she knows is that she's dangerous.

I expected the typical Psi/Changeling scene-cold Psi meets hot blooded changeling. Boy was I surprised. Katya, the Psi, was full of vibrant emotions. One would never know she'd been silenced. Dev was also a Psi...kinda. He was member of the Forgotten race, psi who'd broken away from the main group before. Though not pure, he's able to turn his emotions on and off at will. I have to say, the freshness of the story kept me reading. I did have a difficult time investing into Dev/Katya relationship. It had Stockholm syndrome written all over it. Not my thing, but to each their own. Ms. Singh relied on lack of trust much of the novel to build tension. The relationship was on and off at the drop of a hat. After awhile, it got rather old in my opinion. Not until the end of the book did Ms. Singh add a twist which put everything on the line. I always love the ticking time bomb! The idea that the hero and heroine won't get their HEA totally excites me. Am I bad? When it seemed like all hope was lost, I couldn't put down the book!show more

Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling series is one of my personal favourites. One of the things that make Nalini's books so great is her writing style. It's fun, fresh and well-balanced. I find that, too often, authors get caught up in over-describing, which in turn leads to pages upon pages of narration. Nalini has mastered the art of balancing dialogue with narration to keep the story rolling. In Blaze of Memory, the story moves along at a constant walking pace. I found that my suspense built higher and higher as I continued to read further into the book. So I was a bit taken aback when the suspense seemed to fizzle as the ending neared. One disappointment was that there was no explosive climax. I was anticipating a confrontation that eventually did happen...but not in such a fiery way as I had expected it to. However, my disappointment at the lack of action was quickly overcome by the way in which the book ended. The final chapters of this book are truly touching. I feel as though I have just ridden an emotional rollercoaster. From the beginning, I was immediately drawn to both of the main characters, Devraj Santos and Katya Haas. Both characters underwent dramatic personal growth throughout the story, forced to face their inner demons and realize their desire to be together. Their relationship was refreshing in that they accepted their passion and affection for one another almost immediately. Instead of fighting their own desires, they found themselves struggling in a battle for life, and a life together. The biggest issue that I have with this book is the cover. Naturally, a book cover with the name Nalini Singh on it is going to draw me in. But for those unfamiliar with Nalini or the Psy-Changeling series, the cover screams ACTION...not paranormal romance. And for me, this book is first and foremost a heart-rending romance. On a final note, although Blaze of Memory was written as a standalone, I would recommend that anyone new to the series read it in sequence. You will have a better understanding of the in-depth world that Nalini has created for the Psy-Changelings. Three words to summarize Blaze of Memory - heart-rending, passionate and refreshing.show more
