First off, Talin is our FAVOURITE HEROINE IN THE SERIES! We absolutely adore her! She’s the first human, but she has as much bite as the other Psy girls and Brenna. Her past is a dark one and it has haunted her to this day. We all teared up as we read some of the things that happened to her. What we really liked was how possessive she got of Clay! Normally it is the other way round but we loved to see Tally get her proverbial claws out!
And Clay, none of us were that sure of his from the other books; he was an asshole to both Faith and to Sascha in the previous books, and really how many times are we going to read about a dark and brooding hero with a mysterious past? But this is Nalini Singh we should have known that by 2% into the book we would already be in love with him! Dark and broody he may be, but he is also funny and protective. We love the side that Tally brought out in him and we loved it when they played. We practically melted when the big bad pussy cat was so light hearted with Tally. These two made a fabulous couple and they both really deserved their Happily Ever After.
The introduction of Max Shannon was great and we're really looking forward to reading more about his character! Also, we can already tell that something is going to happen with Aleine and Dorian, are we right? We already approve of her. The fact that she gave up Jon and Noor shows that she’s got a heart. But WHY DO THEY ALWAYS HAVE TO GO FOR THE CHILDREN!? That infuriates us like nothing else! This book also shows you more about the Psy and how they are slowly fracturing from the inside because of the Silence protocol. This books gives HUGES hints about who The Ghost is! And we can't wait to find out if those hints are true or just a big tease.
The next book is Dorian's, will his leopard come out to play? We will find out soon!
"What happened to you, Tally?"
The laughter seeped out the air. "I broke."
He seldom exploded in open fury, but man, could he brood.
"Your purr?" His smile was pure cat. "Only for you."
"You're so big." He would fill her up, take her over.
"Remember that," he groaned. "And tell everyone you know."
"I have a temper, baby, and I know I fucking brood. But even if I act pissed, even if I snarl, it doesn't mean I love you any less. Yor sould shines, Tally, and I'm so damn glad it shines for me."
