Review: Hostage to pleasure - Nalini Singh

 Psy-changelings 5

Genre: paranormal romance
Pages: 330
Published: 2008

Now, as the deadly Psy Council tightens its grip, a rebel Psy scientist finds herself at the mercy of a changeling who has sworn vengeance against her kind...

Ashaya Aleine was separated from her son, forced to create a neural implant that will forever enslave her psychically gifted Psy race. After fighting a desperate battle to save her child and escape the PsyNet, she’s lead not to safety, but into the lethal danger of a sniper’s embrace.

DarkRiver sniper Dorian Christensen lost his sister to a Psy killer. Though he lacks the changeling ability to shift into animal form, his leopard lives within. And that leopard's rage at the brutal loss is a clawing darkness that hungers for vengeance. Falling for a Psy has never been on Dorian's agenda. But charged with protecting Ashaya and her son, he discovers that passion has a way of changing the rules...

This is the reason why I should write reviews at once, this one was left behind not to mention that I started and finished it over some weeks since I had that crazy library loot.

But ok, here we have another psy and changeling falling in love. But this one was different because Ashaya was not like other Psy and therefore it worked better for me. Ashaya wants to save her kid, Dorian helps her, people hunt her, he lusts after her, and she is troubled. In this book another bad guy shows up, a human alliance that wants to take over and sure the Psy sucks but this new alliance is rotten.

What did I get from this book, well there is this rat shifter called Treyan or something, and the freaky thing is that I'd like to see more from him..a rat shifter, I must be crazy. But he sounds cool, the rats are so sneaky and great spies.

I liked Dorian, and here he finally gets saved or looses it since he is really angry with the Psy after his sister getting murdered. So of course he will fall for a Psy who saves him. And I liked her, even with that crazy sister of hers.

Not so much council politics in this one since there were many after them. An ok book and a world I do like. The world is truly the best thing about these books.

Tomorrow I will review Branded by Fire, and yes my fav so far :D

Blodeuedd's Cover Corner: Ok
Reason for reading: Borrowed
Final thoughts: Ok series


  1. B,

    I like this series too. :) I'm a little behind though - I think I have the last 2 books on the shelf.


  2. I love how the Changelings are with kids and Dorian was no exeption on that ;) but then again, this whole series is made of crack for me LOL You're almost caught up with the current release Blodeuedd! I'm pining away for Hawke's story, which is due in 2011 and, if I'm correct, finishes the first story arc within the series. I'm so curious what NS comes up with next in her Psy/Changeling series!

  3. Hey Hon!

    Interesting review...I'll check it out next time I'm at the book store.


  4. Very cool review, seems to be an interesting series.

    Yup you heard me right :) Rat shifter, not exactly cool shifting stuff there, but he makes up for it

    It certainly oozes fire at least

  10. You are on a roll with this series. I have a friend I'm going to recommend them to!

  11. Staci,

  12. I loved the ending of this book! And I agree, for a Psy/Changeling pairing, this one was the best.

  13. VFG
    It sure was, and I am so glad he found a nice mate

  14. I still haven't tried this author, why? I don't know! I love PNR, so maybe I should look up a couple of her books? LOL My TBB list is too heavy to carry around.
