Release Date: July 26, 2022
When Ivan Mercant comes across the beautiful Lei while on a training course with the wolves, he finds himself instantly connected to her. He doesn’t know what to do with this new connection but he is determined to keep Lei close, but tragedy gets in the way. A year later, he gets a second chance.
Like all the books in this series, this one instantly sucked me in and I didn’t want to put it down. Ivan and Soleil’s relationship was filled with tragedy, fear, and a whole lot of love. Ivan had a very rough childhood before he came to live with his grandmother. He was damaged in his mothers womb by her use of drugs and he struggles to connect to other people because of it. He also has a very unique ability that he has kept hidden because of it. I really liked Ivan. He was protective and kind to most people but was also a ruthless killer of those who abused others. I loved how he always protected Soleil but didn’t try to crush her own alpha tendencies.
Soleil is a shifter healer who wants to take care of everyone but doesn’t have a pack. Her experiences as a child and adult have caused her to hold tight to those she lets close. I loved her protective nature, especially when it was towards Ivan because he didn’t know how to deal with it. It was wonderful seeing her boss him around. Also, I loved how she never gave up on their relationship and showed Ivan how to be happy.
The fight against the collapse of the psynet continues in this one. There is a new threat from the scarab army and Ivan and Soleil end up at the center of it. It was a very tense and fast paced situation. I really can’t wait to see how this battle plays out, especially with the new information learned in the last chapter.
Overall, this was another wonderful addition to this series. I can always count on Singh to write captivating and wonderful psy-changeling books. I can’t wait to see who will be the next couple.
