#1 New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh allies two fierce changelings in this explosive Psy-Changeling novel. Though DarkRiver sentinel Mercy is feeling the pressure to mate, she resists savagely when Riley Kincaid, a lieutenant from the SnowDancer pack, seeks to possess her. The problem is not simply that he pushes her buttons; the problem is that he's a wolf, she's a cat, and they're both used to being on top. But when a brilliant changeling researcher is kidnapped from DarkRiver territory in a seemingly senseless attack, Mercy and Riley must work together to track the young male--before his shadowy captors decide he's no longer useful. Along the way, the two dominants may find that submitting to one another uncovers not just a deadly conspiracy, but a passion so raw, it'll leave them both branded by fire...

Our customer reviews

Superb story-telling quality, as per usual with Ms. Nalini Singh. Engaging characters which readers can connect with. Beautiful world building. Etc., etc., but if you are a Psy-changeling series follower, you know all that already anyway. What I like about this book is the cat and dog dilemma, chemistry and fight for dominance dynamics! And the wonderful ending, ofcourse! Overall rating = 4 out of 5show more

Mercy is a dominant female leopard changeling and a high ranking sentinel in the DarkRiver Pack who has been asigned as liaison to the neighbouring SnowDancer Pack of wolf changelings. Her coutnerpoint on their side is Riley, a steadfast lieutenant who seems to only loose his cool around her. There's one other thing, Mercy is in heat but her leopard will not accept a mate weaker than it and so Riley sets out to prove that his wolf is dominant, protective and a whole lot more. When the Human Alliance rise up to disrupt order in the fragile NetMind - a psychic plane of connect Psy minds - it is up to Mercy and Riley to stop them but can they cooperate long enough without one trying to assert dominance over the other? A very hot reader for those who like strong, dominant heros with strong, dominant heroines and the madness that ensures. From the very beginning it is clear that the pairing will not only be explosive but very accuately mirrors their changeling natures. Each scenes fairly sizzles with sexual tension and it has been a while since a book has made me sit up and take notice like I did. I think my only bad point of this read is the apparent ease with which Mercy seems to accept Riley's dominance. I think the whole struggle could have been a little more real after the first encounter. That said, brilliant addition to a smoking hot series of books. Fairly a good read on it's own but probably best enjoyed in chronological order as the 6th Changeling-Psy more
