Step into New York Times bestseller Nalini Singh’s explosive and shockingly passionate Psy-Changeling world…

A dangerous, volatile rebel, hands stained bloodred.

A woman whose very existence has been erased.

A love story so dark, it may shatter the world itself.

A deadly price that must be paid.

The day of reckoning is here.

From “the alpha author of paranormal romance” (Booklist) comes the most highly anticipated novel of her career—one that blurs the line between madness and genius, between subjugation and liberation, between the living and the dead.

This is the book I’ve been waiting for in this whole series, and I’m glad we finally got it!

So, up to this point, it was obvious Kaleb was not only really powerful but also up to something.  We got an idea of what he was really up to in the last book, but this was the book where everything came together.  I wasn’t let down by anything, and there has been a lot of build-up to the events and revelations in Heart Of Obsidian, and I was really nervous it wasn’t going to live up to the expectations I had going into this book.  Either Singh was going to do it justice, or I would be really disappointed in the story.

Thankfully, Singh did it justice, and I had nothing to worry about.  Kaleb makes a lot more sense, and I feel like I understand him a lot better in this book.  He was a character who could go in any number of directions, and I wasn’t sure what to expect with him.  Having read Heart Of Obsidian, I can’t imagine his story being told any other way, and for a book being focused solely on the Psy world, I was really intrigued by what he and Sahara went through.

I’ve always liked the books that focused on both Psy and Changelings- both worlds are so cool and interesting, and it seems like I tend to really like the books where we see both.  It seems like when a book focuses mostly on one, I don’t seem to like it as much.

That wasn’t the case with this one, and I’m not going to lie, I actually liked that this one was so completely focused on the couple.  We didn’t really get any of the other stuff going on in the background, and as much as I love all of the different pieces, it was nice to take a break from everything and focus on one thing.

I know this book has been out for a while, but I’m still hesitant to talk about it because I don’t want to give anything away if you haven’t read it.  This is one book where it’s better to go in not knowing a lot.  Unless you like spoilers, which is also cool.  I know I was glad I went into it not knowing anything.

4 stars.  I really liked Sahara and Kaleb together, and I’m glad we finally got Kaleb’s book!
