As a Psy, Sasha Duncan must hide any trace of feeling or emotion or she will be branded as flawed and sent to rehabilitation. As her world is crumbling around her she must deal not only with the truth about her race but the attraction she is feeling for the changeling alpha Lucas Hunter.
It has been years since I read the Psy-Changeling series and I am so glad I decided to reread it. I couldn’t put this book down! It was everything I wanted in a shifter romance. I was instantly sucked into this amazing world and couldn’t put the book down once I started.
Sasha has been hiding her abnormalities since she was a child and realized how dangerous it was for a psy to be different. While extremely powerful she is still uncategorized and everyone believes her abilities will never manifest, but they are. She is something that hasn’t been seen in the Psy population since Silence went into effect. I loved Sasha. She was strong, determined, and willing to sacrifice everything to save a young woman.
“He made her hunger, made her feel raw and wild things that threatened to crack the ever more fragile mask of Psy coldness she wore to survive.”
Lucas Hunter is the alpha of the DarkRiver pack. Lucas, like most of the changelings, hate the psy. But after one day with Sasha he realizes she is different and he is determined to have her help them find a killer. Lucas is the epitome of protective alpha male. I loved that Lucas was extremely protective but still let Sasha be in danger to find the killer.
The relationship and love between these two was so strong and emotional. It was everything I wanted to see in a relationship, especially in a paranormal one. I love these two and really can’t wait to see more of them in future books. I cannot wait to continue my reread of this series and rediscover everyone.
