Review: Kiss of Snow - Nalini Singh

Series: Psy-changeling 10
Genre: Paranormal romance
Pages: Hardcover, 368
Published: UK August 11th 2011
Publisher: Gollancz
Source: For review

Since the moment of her defection from the PsyNet and into the SnowDancer wolf pack, Sienna Lauren has had one weakness. Hawke. Alpha and dangerous, he compels her to madness.
Hawke is used to walking alone, having lost the woman who would've been his mate long ago. But Sienna fascinates the primal heart of him, even as he tells himself she is far too young to handle the wild fury of the wolf.
Then Sienna changes the rules-and suddenly, there is no more distance, only the most intimate of battles between two people who were never meant to meet. Yet as they strip away each other's secrets in a storm of raw emotion, they must also ready themselves for a far more vicious fight...
A deadly enemy is out to destroy SnowDancer, striking at everything they hold dear, but it is Sienna's darkest secret that may yet savage the pack that is her home-and the alpha who is its heartbeat.

My thoughts: 
I only read book 1 a year ago but it still feels like I have been waiting so long for this book. It was because since the moment Hawke stepped in on the scene I wanted more of him and now my wish came through. Luckily I had the rest of the series to keep my company until then.

I always wondered about Hawke and Sienna's story. The sexual tension has been felt through many books but she is just so young, not to mention that he does not think they have a future since they can't mate. His mate died when they were just kids. The question through out this book then was would they, could they? Because the two obviously wanted each other and feelings ran high. You could cut the tension with a knife.

For those who do not know Hawke or Sienna I will make it short. Hawke is the alpha wolf of The Snow Dancers. He is just so sexy and Sienna is one lucky woman. Sienna is a psy who defected with her family. But she is also an X psy and they do not last long. She will burn out and kill. She is also not yet 20 so there is a big age difference, but then she had to grow up fast since she was trained to be a killer since she was a kid. And they want each other, a lot!

As usual there is the political aspect as some want to take over changeling territory and destroy San Francisco. There are some bad Psy out there and a big battle is coming. And another couple will also dance around each other, you will see when you read it. Some happy news from the Dark River changelings too.

Honestly what more can I say than that Hawke and Sienna's story has to be read. It was great.

By far the best book in the series so far. The tension, the passion, the will they, wont they, just sucked me right in and would not let go of me. I am quite the Hawke fangirl and I am very satisfied with his book.

Hawke and Sienna's book! 'nuff said

I usually do not like the heads but my hardcover was just so pretty!

" have my devotion, your name is branded on my soul, my wolf yours to command. A hundred years? It'll never be enough. I want eternity."

AHHHHHH I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH! I felt like I was waiting for them forever too even though I came to this series a little late, but they were worth the wait. Loved:)

Chris said...

So far behind on this series...

Leontine said...

The moment I finished Kiss Of Snow i wanted to re-read. I agree, a must read in the series :)

serendipity_viv said...

I must read Nalini Singh soon! I feel like I am missing out.

The Bookworm said...

I need to read this author also, I have heard good things. Nice review.

Patti (@TheLoveJunkee) said...

I am sooooo far behind in this series - at a certain point it just feels like I'll never catch up!

Alexis @ Reflections of a Bookaholic said...

The cover looks intense. I absolutely love sexual tension especially when it spans multiple books.

Lynette said...

LOL. Loved this book, the ending through me because it seemed like a mash up of all the other endings (how they overcame their differences) but even still I re-read it like 3 times after my first read through.

Anachronist said...

LOL, I knew you would like it. I have a love-hate relationship with this series. I STILL think it was too slick and too easy - her overcoming her lack of any experience and him dealing whith a teen wild girl who has a huge problems of her own...

Elysium said...

I've been meaning to start these books but where's the time?

Mari - Escape In A Book said...

I'm glad to hear that book #9 is the best book so far, that means I have a lot to look forward too :D

Veens said...

I guess, now I really have to somehow read Nalini Singh :)

Blodeuedd said...

I just checked, I read book 1 last year on June, still I have craved this book so long :D

I do admit to have missed two ;)

I am so happy for them, just gotta love Hawke

Do give her a go :D

Aurian said...

Ooo you finally read it! So glad you loved it. But do you really love this cover? Mine is so much more pretty. I really don't like the bloody cheek.

Blodeuedd said...

I hope you do one day. There is so much to like about the series.

Lol, I know that feeling very well

They have tried to stay away but some things are just meant to be :D

Hihi, true, I just overlooked it all in the end. Awww Hawke, I do got a major crush on him

Blodeuedd said...

Tsk, it was written in the stars *happy sigh* Then everything works out.

Yikes, I am on such a romance high right now.

That is the eternal question

Yes you do :D

I hope you try her books

Blodeuedd said...

I have not like them so far but for some reason this book in hardback just made me want to hug it. Might have been Hawke but yes I like the cover :D

Mel said...

Oooo, I haven't started this series, but I think I will like it. Who doesn't like a bit of smexy paranormal actions? :)

Staci said...

As always your enthusiasm makes me want to read this series!

Melissa (i swim for oceans) said...

That's one heck of a cover! I swear Jenny tells me Nalini is a genius :)

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

Oh this is another series I have been looking forward to reading. I need to make sure that I add a star to this one on my wishlist to know that it is a very good one!

Blodeuedd said...

Hihi ;) yes who does not like that cos that is sure what this series brings to the table

Yay, I am glad

@Book cat
It was worth the wait

You could just jump to this one ;) Oh no now I am being very bad, shame on me

Simcha said...

I keep meaning to give this series a try, but just haven't gotten around to doing so. Though seeing how much you enjoyed this book, I definitely think I'm going to start reading the first book soon.

Blodeuedd said...

Though I do love this one the most ;) But yes book 1 is ok sine alpha Lucas was in that one

Carrie at In the Hammock Blog said...

sounds like a great romance!

Melissa (My words and pages) said...

Oh wow. This sounds like such a great read. And a new one to me. :) Thanks!

Blodeuedd said...

It certainly was :D

No woman can say no to Hawke, lol, well I can't anyway

Missie, The Unread Reader said...

Wow! This cover is so different from the U.S. cover. That guy kind of looks familiar though. hehehe

Hawke is legendary. Jenny totally made me his fangirl, and I haven't even read the books. LOL

Blodeuedd said...

Lol, well that is just his power. He will make you swoon even before you meet him :)

Darlene said...

Don't you just hate when you have to wait so long for the next book in the series when you like it so much. That is a pretty cool cover.
