For today, another book review!!

One of my favourite authors blew away the whole scene with the first in her Psy/Changeling series in 2006. Since then the books have just gotten better...and better.

Nalini Singh's newest installment Hostage to Pleasure is the sixth book in a fabulous series. With every word Ms. Singh has created a rich, compelling world. An alternate earth, a world of the future. Not one of peace and vision but one where a dangerous war is brewing between the species. Changeling, Psy and Human...

Dorian is a sentinel for the DarkRiver clan, a Changeling leopard without the ability to change. Ashaya is one of his sworn enemies, a scientist for the Psy Council--the very same council ultimately responsible for the brutal killing of his baby sister. But is Ashaya as cold and emotionless as she so perfectly portrays? The caged beast inside Dorian doesn't think so, and is determined to break through Ashaya's walls to find out the truth, and to find out what she's hiding...even if it means inciting the rage of a brilliant sociopath and bringing the Psy down on them both.

I seriously recommend this book--but definitely read the prior books first. This is a series that builds a larger story that should be read in succession to truly appreciate the awesome world-building this author excels at.

Yeah, but Amy this one is SO worth your time! I'll even pimp you my very own copies if you want to read them.

I've heard so many good things aboug Nalini Singh.
And hey - I filled her water glass at the literacy signing in SF (I was a volunteer) so that counts as a brush with fame, right?? ;)
