Review: Wolf Rain by Nalini Singh – I READ LOVE
Nalini Singh takes us on a whirl-wind adventure in the 3rd novel of the Psy-Changeling Trinity series…
The end of Silence was supposed to create a better world for future generations. But trust is broken, and the alliance between Psy, Changeling, and human is thin. The problems that led to Silence are back in full force. Because Silence fixed nothing, just hid the problems.
This time, the Psy have to find a real answer to their problems–if one exists. Or their race will soon go extinct in a cascade of violence. The answer begins with an empath who is attuned to monsters–and who is going to charm a wolf into loving her despite his own demons.
This is the 3rd book in the Psy-Changeling Trinity series, but this series is an off-shoot of the Psy-Changeling series with over 20 books. But, if you just read this one, you’ll still understand who, what, where and how, as Ms. Singh is a premiere world builder and gives you a complete story with background, seamlessly.
This is the story of Alexei and Memory.
Memory, taken as a child by a serial killer who killed her mother and imprisoned her for her psychic talent, is trapped in an underground bunker when Alexei’s (a wolf changeling) tracks a strange scent directly to the bunker and finds her. Memory, having been isolated and imprisoned since childhood, isn’t sure who to trust but what she feels for the wolf in human skin doesn’t feel threatening at all, and decides to trust this wolf.
With an overwhelming need to keep this “E” safe, Alexei takes Memory to his pack and will find the serial killer who will surely come after Memory. Memory’s psychic gift is a darkness that haunts her, being used to hurt people has left her sure that her “gift” is actually a curse. Her bad-tempered wolf doesn’t realize the extent of her abilities and is sure when he finds out, he will abandon her to this new world. Alexei knows Memory is some sort of Empath and can see the goodness in her, and will never stop until her abductor is found and preferably killed in the process. His wolf has no problem ending a serial killer and now that he knows Memory is his mate, he will stop at nothing to save her and bring her abductor to justice (wolf justice, of course). And, once done, he will have to ensure that he doesn’t become the monster and hurt his own mate!
This is another great book, in a great series from Nalini Singh. Her world-building and characterizations of the people in her world are first class and there is never a “bad” book in any of her series, and this is another wonderful story. And, of course, we get to see glimpses into the lives of our favorite characters from previous books.
I was given this review opportunity by First to Read and it’s a true and honest review of this ARC. You can believe whether a review opportunity or I purchase a book myself, Nalini Singh never disappoints!
