Review: Branded by Fire - Nalini Singh

Psy-changelings 6

Genre: Paranormal romance
Pages: 345
Published: 2009

When a brilliant changeling researcher is kidnapped, DarkRiver sentinel Mercy, a cat, and SnowDancer lieutenant Riley, a wolf, must work together to track the young man-before his shadowy captors decide he's no longer useful. Along the way, the two dominants may find that submitting to one another uncovers not just a deadly conspiracy, but a passion so raw that it'll leave them both branded by fire.

This was my fav book so far, I think it has to do with the fact that this time it was a changeling couple. They had great chemistry and no one was ice-cold or without feelings, instead the feelings were overflowing.

Mercy is a sentinel for the DarkRiver pack, and Riley has the same status over at the SnowDancer wolves. Here they are working together to bring the packs together. Mercy is going crazy since all the dominant cats are mated and she is left alone and she needs a man who is not weaker than her, but the doesn't want someone stronger either. And then there is Riley who pushes all the wrong buttons, or should we say right buttons. But wolves and cats do not play nice together.

This book worked for me cos of the feelings between these two, the book was warmer. Mercy was cool, even if she did have a lot of trouble with what she wanted. Riley got used to the whole situation faster and knew what he wanted. He was strong, and oh yes I liked him. I also learnt that wolves and cat can play really nice together.

To sum it up, this one was hot.

Blodeuedd's Cover Corner: Meh
