The “unparalleled romantic adventure”* of Nalini Singh’s New York Times bestselling series continues as a new dawn begins for the Psy-Changeling world…

The Psy-Changeling world has undergone a staggering transformation and now stands at a crossroads. The Trinity Accord promises a new era of cooperation between disparate races and groups. It is a beacon of hope held together by many hands: Old enemies. New allies. Wary loners.

But a century of distrust and suspicion can’t be so easily forgotten and threatens to shatter Trinity from within at any moment. As rival members vie for dominance, chaos and evil gather in the shadows and a kidnapped woman’s cry for help washes up in San Francisco, while the Consortium turns its murderous gaze toward a child who is the embodiment of change, of love, of piercing hope: A child who is both Psy…and changeling.

To find the lost, protect the vulnerable—and save Trinity—no one can stand alone. This is a time of loyalty across divisions, of bonds woven into the heart and the soul, of heroes known and unknown standing back to back and holding the line. But is an allegiance of honor even possible with traitors lurking in their midst?

This is an extensive paranormal romance series and I’ve only recently caught up with it. I love Singh’s abilities to fully-realized fantasy backdrops for her characters to interact in. The history between the varied races in this world is so detailed and complex and plays beautifully into the story-arch that continues throughout the whole series. I’m really excited to see where the series goes next!!

– Grab (one of) your current read(s) and open it to a random page
– Share a couple “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
– BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

This week I’m teasing one of the short stories from this collection of novellas set in the Psy-Changeling world…

 “I teach a lot of little cats,” she reminded him in a prim, schoolteacher voice. “I might not be an expert on changeling behavior, but I’ve picked up enough to know that when in animal form, you behave according to the needs of the animal.”

He couldn’t help himself. He turned and snapped his teeth at her, making her jump. When he began to chuckle, her eyes narrowed. “You’re as bad as Bryan. He does that to Katie all the time.”

“Odds on, he has a crush on her.”

Her lips twitched. “That’s what I think, too.”

Here are a couple teasers from a new series (well, new to me) that I’ve fallen in love with: The Guild Hunter series by Nalini Singh!

Angels’ Flight (Guild Hunter, #0.4, 0.5, 0.6, and 3.5) by Nalini Singh

Mass Market Paperback, 345 pages
Publisher: Berkley Sensation

This teaser comes from the 1st of the 4 short stories in the collection: Angels’ Pawn…

Janvier shifted up a gear as they raced over Callan’s manicured lawns and crashing their way through a hedge or three.

Ashwini used the chance to reload her gun and twist her head around to check if Monique was still alive. The blonde vampire stared at her with eyes so round, the whites showed on every side. “You’re both insane.”

 

And here’s some more fun with Ashwini and Janvier, who get more viewing time in this latest novel of the series…

Archangel’s Shadows (Guild Hunter, #7) by Nalini Singh

Mass Market Paperback, 384 pages
Publisher: Berkley Sensation
Release Date: October 28th, 2014
ISBN# 9780425251171

Ashwini met the angel’s gaze. “Shall I plug my ears?” Hunters had fought alongside immortals in the battle to hold their city, would do so again should the situation call for it, but when it came to everyday existence, getting involved in Tower business could be perilous to a mortal’s health. “Or I can jump on the subway,” she offered, taking her hand of Janvier’s shoulder.

“No,” he said, at the same time that Illium spoke the word.

“There, cher,” Janvier added. “You would not break both our hearts, would you?”
