REVIEW Slave to Sensation

If you’re a guy, tune out…now.


the first edition cover

STS is the first book in the Psy-Changeling paranormal romance series by Nalini Singh. It was one of the first paras I read, way way way back in 2008 when I was working with the Fiction buyer at the then major book chain here in NZ, and set the standard as to what I expect –clever hot guys, clever powerful women, family ties, punctuation & depth. I’m not going to go in-depth on the book as I really think you’ll enjoy it without my spoilers!

this was the cover of my print versions - lining up the cover guys always made them look odd!

If I owned a print version still, it would be on my Keeper shelf. That’s the one marked “family-do-not-touch-even-if-I’m-dead”. As it is, it lies on both my eReaders and is regularly re-read, as I like to do before each new title comes out. Nothing like a binge! I would like to note that I was very generous and gave away my print versions to someone who had lost their stash & have regretted it ever since!

the new cover

Synopsis: Dive into a world torn apart by a powerful race with phenomenal powers of the mind—and none of the heart…

In a world that denies emotions, where the ruling Psy punish any sign of desire, Sascha Duncan must conceal the feelings that brand her as flawed. To reveal them would be to sentence herself to the horror of “rehabilitation”— the complete psychic erasure of everything she ever was….

Both human and animal, Lucas Hunter is a Changeling hungry for the very sensations the Psy disdain. After centuries of uneasy co-existence, these two races are now on the verge of war over the brutal murders of several Changeling women. Lucas is determined to find the Psy killer who butchered his packmate, and Sascha is his ticket into their closely guarded society. But he soon discovers that this ice-cold Psy is very capable of passion—and that the animal in him is fascinated by her. Caught between their conflicting worlds, Lucas and Sascha must remain bound to their identities—or sacrifice everything for a taste of darkest temptation…
