Better than I remember.

I read this book years ago and while I remembered it fondly, I was a little reluctant to get the audio version. I am so glad I indulged and I just 3 hours into listening, I knew I'd purchase book 2.

Sasha is a psy who has been taught that emotion leads to madness in people who have psychic abilities. Their people have trained themselves to block out all emotions to avoid the emotions that could lead to violence. Such apathy leads each individual psy to be physically separate, even avoiding touch. Sasha's mother is a powerful member of the psy council and Sasha is expected to be a perfect psy. Unfortunately for Sasha, she has emotions.

Lucas is a member of the changeling society and he was raised with deep, protective emotions for his family and clan. The changelings can't imagine how a society as insular as the psy can function; the changelings' biggest strength is that they are not alone. The changelings use touch to affirm their relationships and for comfort and play.

I love how the relationship between these two builds and how the author builds the psy and changeling societies. Each society is distinct and hints of a long, rich history.

This is a romance, so expect explicit sex scenes. I have listened to romances where I cringed at the language and had to fast forward past the scene, but this book never made me do that. I also like that while this book is the first in a series, it also works as a stand-alone book and doesn't leave the listener at a cliff hanger.

Got me hooked on Audiobooks!

I have to admit, I love this book in print, but I haven't liked the other audiobooks I've tried. I heard that this series was being released on audiobook, so I thought, okay, try again. I was *very* pleasantly surprised. Angela Dawe, who reads the book, is fantastic. Even the more, er, heated, scenes were somehow not the problem I thought they might be. I will definitely be getting the rest of this series!

If you haven't tried audiobooks yet, and you like this in print, I definitely recommend it in this format. (And if you've never read it in print, Nalini Singh is an incredible author, and this is a great book--worth the listen!)
