Title: Silver Shark
Author: Ilona Andrews
Series: Kinsmen #2
Claire Shannon is a psycher with the ability to read, control, and destroy minds of enemy psychers. She has spent her life fighting in a futile war but when it ends abruptly she finds herself running and hiding what she is.
This book was a slow burn, especially compared to the first one. Claire was a wonderful and very interesting heroine. The psycher ability was fascinating and quite deadly. Claire struggles at first to live a civilian life but quickly finds her stride and excels. I enjoyed watching Claire open up and embrace color, food, and love.
Venturo was a great hero. He was her boss but never pushed her or abused his position. He went out of his way to make sure he wasn’t, which I appreciated. I liked that he didn’t hold her past actions against her and embraced everything about her. These two may have had a slow building romance but the tension was there from the beginning and I loved it.
This world is fascinating because of all the different abilities and worlds. I really found the psycher ability fascinating, especially since they imagine themselves and very interesting animals. Overall, this was a great addition to this series and I can’t wait to read the next story.
