New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh takes us on a new adventure in this next 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.

    Chapter 1

    The Psy hid their evil in the snow. Watch. Be vigilant. Do not allow such heartbreak to happen again.

    —Letter from Aren Snow, opened in the aftermath of her death in 2059

    Grief hit him with the force of a backhanded punch.

    Alexei stumbled, came to a halt under the driving rain—and immediately realized the soul-shredding pain wasn't his. His eyes burned and his throat threatened to clog, but both the man who ran under the rain and the wolf inside him understood that this grief came from the outside.

    Alexei's own grief remained locked up tight in an airless box where it stayed except for cold midnight hours about once a month when he could no longer hold it inside. Those nights, he ran in wolf form, howling up at the cold moon in pure fury and ignoring the wolf song that responded to his.

    His grief was primal, angry and aggressive and stubbornly determined to be a private thing. His packmates didn't know the meaning of private most of the time, but in this, everyone except the toughest, most stubborn wolves held back. Likely because Alexei would growl them right back inside the den. His grief had claws.

    The grief he could sense today . . . it was raw, without shields, naked and defenseless. It was a wounded animal with its paw caught in a cruel trap. A broken creature in a place without light, alone and afraid. A sentient being who had lost all hope.

    Both parts of him strained at the leash to find the grieving one, attempt to assuage their grief. He was a dominant predatory changeling, a deep protectiveness toward weaker packmates built into his blood. This person wasn't pack, wasn't wolf, but his instincts didn't make the distinction when so close to such terrible anguish.

    Alexei had to force himself to pause, think. Such an overwhelming emotional storm, the roar of it thunder in his blood, it could come from only one type of being. An empath. And not just any empath. A powerful empath who was broadcasting on all bands with no thought to who their pain might hit.

    Alexei had only ever met two empaths. The one he knew best had laughed during their meeting and he'd felt the ripple of her happiness in the air, but it had been akin to catching a distant scent on the wind. This was a deluge, but there was no attempt to confuse his own senses.

    The E was broadcasting so loudly that he couldn't help but feel their crushing grief, his already battered and bruised heart aching, but he knew the grief wasn't his own. The E wasn't targeting him or making any attempt to hack his mind. The waves of emotion were too uncontrolled and chaotic for that. As a wolf might react at the loss of his mate, throwing back his head and howling his rage and grief up at the sky, uncaring of who else might hear.

    This was no Psy trick or trap.

    Alexei ran in the direction of the torrent of pain.

    Only moments earlier and regardless of his wolf's edgy need to run, he'd been considering turning back. The sudden rise in the strength of the wind worried him, and the rain had become a pitiless silver sheet that threatened to turn into shards of ice. Though heavy snow yet shrouded the higher elevations, including thick patches in his current location, it had been cloudy but otherwise fine when he left his pack's central den in California's Sierra Nevada mountains.

    Now, turning back was not an option.

    The fallen pine needles and snowy leaf litter were fleeting touches under his booted feet, the water that ran over him frigid. Tall green firs thickly dusted with white speared into the...

    The end of Silence, imposed on the brainy Psy to control their emotions, is supposed to make for a better world, but the alliance among Psy, Changeling, and human is worn-silk fragile. Fearing that the Psy face a blistering end, one empath decides that it's time to cozy up to a wolf. Next in the "Psy-Changeling Trinity," part of the New York Times best-selling "Psy-Changeling" series.

    Once again immersing readers in a richly imagined world where psychic Psy, shape-shifting Changelings, and humans coexist in uneasy harmony, Singh’s third Psy Changeling Trinity novel (after Ocean Light) delights with lovingly drawn characters. Memory was eight years old when she was kidnapped by a serial killer, who held her in isolation for years so he could abuse her unique empathic gift. Alexei, wolf Changeling and lieutenant of the powerful SnowDancer pack, has isolated himself emotionally from his pack, operating under the impression he’s cursed. When he discovers a devastated Memory deep in the heart of SnowDancer territory, he feels called to protect the small, strong survivor at all costs. This slightly futuristic love story blends well with the larger plot focused on a society rediscovering itself. Familiar faces from previous books are artfully woven in to welcome returning readers, and if the story feels a bit familiar too, it’s still a fine serving of literary comfort food. Agent: Nephele Tempest, Knight Agency.

    After saving a woman from a serial killer, a wolf changeling will do anything to keep her safe, but the stakes get higher when her unique powers may signal the worldwide rise of aggressive rogue energy. Nearing the first anniversary of his brother's death, Alexei Harte picks up an overwhelming psychic broadcast of grief and discovers an empath imprisoned in an underground bunker. When he rescues her, at first her only emotions seem to be rage and grief for her recently deceased cat. But as Memory begins to trust Alexei and the world he helps her enter, her conflicted, negative emotions begin to calm. The other empaths she meets help her understand that her gifts are unique and powerful and reframe them beyond her violent past which forced her to use them to help a psychopath. The more they work with her, the more they come to believe that she might be particularly positioned to help strengthen the complicated PsyNet, the vast psychic network on which the Psy depend to keep them connected and healthy. Alexei, meanwhile, is wrestling with the death of his brother, who went violently rogue one year earlier. He's definitely interested in making Memory his mate but worries he carries the rogue genes that threaten her even as he's trying to keep her safe from a variety of other dangers. The Psy/Changeling Trinity series continues with another complex, fascinating angle to the fall of Silence and its manifestations. Alexei's family represents the rogue component in the Changeling world, while Memory both represents and acts as the first line of defense against a rising rogue element within the Psy. Favorite alpha characters weave through the story, meeting the new challenge with their typical intelligence, flexibility, and collaboration. Another Psy/Changeling page-turner from the brilliant Singh.
