Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible addition to the series!!!! Unbelievable!!!! I waited and waited for this book... I didn't read any teasers, excerpts, reviews, or group discussions. I wanted to go into this book without being spoiled even a little bit (and I'm often someone who loves spoilers)... and my expectations were already through the roof, what with it being the Ghost's book and all... Ahhhh this book was just awesome on SO many levels and met EVERY. SINGLE. EXPECTATION. AND. MORE. This review is going to be the pits to some because I'm basically just going to tell you how I feel up to this point, mainly because just telling you who the leads are in this book is a spoiler, and I don't want to spoil a thing for anyone. Plus being the 12th book in a series, reviews are hardly simple when it comes to a fictional world like this one... Listen if you've never read Singh before and are a fan of paranormal romance or even urban fantasy with a strong romantic subplot, then get off your bum and pick up Slave to Sensation (book 1 in the Psy-Changeling series) right now! And I recommend reading at least the first three books if you're not convinced after book 1 or 2. Singh has a gift for world building, and it takes more than two books to get even a small idea of what she's building for us. And let's just say from where it started to where it is now... Ridiculous! It's unbelievable how small morsels from early books in the series are still relevant 8-10 books down the road. Singh is quite consistent with the quality of her work (very very few continuity errors or problems like that), and even when one particular book isn't your favourite in the series, it's still very good and you still like it because of the progression of where she's going with the overall major story arc. Heart of Obsidian is officially in a three-way tie for my favourite in the series. There's no clear cut lead between Judd's book (#3), Hawke's book (#10), and this one the Ghost's book, and I think it's because I love them the same but for slightly different reasons. For Heart of Obsidian, the Ghost is probably the best written "anti-hero" PERIOD! He has done some reprehensible things where you always question where exactly he stands on the good-to-evil scale (obviously closer to evil), and yet Singh does such an amazing job of giving us pieces of this damaged soul, breaking him down layer by layer with the support of this perfect woman for a man like him, you just can't help but want that HEA! And the sex scenes in this thing were ridiculous! Saying the Ghost is a Psy is not a spoiler, so my point is that sex scenes with Psy can come off as sounding quite clinical with a pro-creation purpose only. That is not the case here!!! Ah-mazingly hot and sexy!!! As a reader you're still very aware that it is a Psy having sex, but WOW! Singh has a way with words :P I just can't imagine a die-hard fan of the series like myself being disappointed with this. There will undoubtedly be one or two, but that's just it, they'll be in the minority. For me to find flaws would just be too nit-picky at this point, and it really isn't necessary when I loved it and gave it five stars! I hope Singh fans enjoy this as much as I did, and I hope Singh newbies give this author a chance. If it wasn't official before, it is now! Singh is my favourite author in the genre hands downs (I'm also including her Guild Hunter series that I love just as much as well). She makes her books so much more than a romance, but it all goes hand-in-hand in the best way possible!!! :D

About the Book

Throughout the incredible 11-book run of Singh's series, there has been one question that has tantalized fans. In the eagerly awaited 12th book in the series, Singh finally reveals the surprising answer to the biggest Psy-Changeling mystery.

Read from the Book

Chapter 1 Kaleb Krychek, cardinal telekinetic and a man no one wanted to meet alone on a dark night, had been searching for his quarry for seven years, three weeks, and two days. Even while he slept, his mind had continued to hunt through the sprawling psychic network that was the heartbeat and the cage of the Psy race. Not for a day, not for a second, had he forgotten his search, forgotten what they’d taken from him. Everyone involved would pay. He’d make certain of it. Right now, however, he had different priorities, his search complete, his target huddled in a corner of a small, windowless room in his isolated home on the outskirts of Moscow. Crouching down in front of her, he held out a glass of water. “Drink.” Her response was to crush herself impossibly further into the corner and tighten her arms around the knees she hugged to her chest. She’d spent the hour since he’d retrieved her from her prison rocking to and fro in brittle silence. Her hair was a tangled rats’ nest around her face, her upper arms bearing both fresh scratches and marks of older gouges. She was still a bare five feet, two inches . . . or so he judged. She’d been in a huddled position pre-teleport, had only curled further into her shell in the past sixty minutes. Her eyes—a blue so deep they were midnight—refused to meet his, skittering away if he entered her line of sight. Now she ducked her head, the matted waist-length strands that should’ve been a rich black interwoven with unexpec
