For Adria, his dangerous lone-wolf appeal is beyond sexual. It consumes her. It terrifies her. It threatens to undermine everything she has built of her new life.

If you are a fan of the psy-changeling series you will want to read this book. But don't get your expectations too high. The love story between Adria and Riaz takes up only a portion of this book. The book spent so much time checking in with Hawke and Sienna, other couples, not to mention the necessary breaks to see what the Council is up to that I never really felt like I got to know Adria and Riaz.
I thought Singh could've given us more Adria and Riaz. The problems the couple endured seemed to be brushed over. So, while I love seeing the growing relationship between mates I feel Singh did a disservice to the main characters of the book.
Sometimes a book needs to be written to extend the story arc and that is what this one does. That being said I love Nalini Singh and her psy-changeling series. I am not sad I spent a few days reading this book. It just isn't one of the best in the series. Though the set up for the next book looks awesome.
Definitely read this series in order because you will be lost if you tried to start with this book.
It was nice to catch up with all the other couples and to see what the Psy were doing but I agree with the review that Adria and Riaz kind of got shafted storywise. It's still pretty good but this book leans towards more sci-fi urban fantasy than typical romance like most of the other books.
I still really enjoyed the book and like the forward movement to the overall storyline. Can't wait to see what happens next.
Singh has really settled into her Psy-Changeling world. This book was almost hypnotic in it's calm, reassuring pace. It left me feeling like I'd come home again.
She touched on so many of the main characters we'd met previously--updating us on their life statuses. No longer needing a fast-paced suspense-driven plot, her Psy-Changeling books are becoming gratifyingly epic instead.
I always welcome a return to the SnowDancer/DarkRiver territories, and this book was no exception. Top-notch storytelling from a fantastic author. Can't be beat!

Helpful Score: 1
This book is more a continuation of the relationship between Hawke and Sienna, than a romance between two characters we really haven't met before. Since Hawke and Sienna are my favorite couple I did not feel gypped, but I can understand how others might.
It also spends a lot of words advancing the over-arching plot of Psy/Alliance/Netmind/Council/war.
