Paranormal Romance 

The fate of millions of lives hangs in the balance in this new Psy-Changeling Trinity novel from New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh...
Kidnapped as a young girl, her psychic powers harnessed by a madman, Memory lives a caged and isolated existence . . . until she comes face-to-face with a wolf. Labelled an empath by her bad-tempered rescuer, Memory knows that her 'gift' is nothing so bright. It is a terrible darkness that means she will always be hunted.
But Memory is free now and she intends to live. A certain growly wolf can just deal with it.
Alexei prefers to keep his packmates at bay, the bleak history of his family a constant reminder that mating, love, hope is not for him. But Memory, this defiant and fearless woman who stands toe-to-toe with him awakens the most primal part of his nature - and soon, he must make a choice: risk everything or lose Memory to a murderous darkness that wants to annihilate her from existence . . .
'Paranormal romance at its best' Publishers Weekly
'Singh continues to be one of the most prolific and consistently excellent writers on the scene today' Romantic Times. 

5 Stars 

The Psy/Changeling series is intriguing and fascinating. The author's sense of humour always brings a smile to my face. Wolf Rain runs at a steady pace and the characters are lovable. The Psy Net continues to crumble with some devastating effects and the future prospects are looking rather gloomy.

Lexi is one of Snowdancers Lieutenant. He is a grumpy, but fun wolf. He has a fierce sense of protectiveness towards those deserving of his kindness. However, do not get on his wrong side as he isn't shy to show his claws and bites!

Memory is just that. A memory until Lexi frees her from captivity. Despite everything that she has been through, she remains strong and is very loving even though she doubts her own abilities.

Lexi is disgusted when he discovers Memory and takes her under his protection. At this stage, she could be a decoy, but that doesn't stop him from helping her. Once he discovers who she is, he is set on finding the one who wronged and abused her for so long. However, her captor is quite evasive and is hell bent on getting back what he thinks is his. 

As Lexi and Memory get to the know each other, a bond forms between them, but he is convinced that he is cursed. Getting too close to him could prove to be detrimental. Can they find a solution to this problem? 

Lexi and Memory fit well together. Their interactions are somewhat interesting. I like Lexi's strength and loyalty as well as Memory's strength and determination. The way she adapts to her new life is admirable. The highlight is being back in Snowdancer's territory and revisiting some of my favourite characters who all have valuable roles in this solid and out of this world concept. Loved it and looking forward to more to come. 

I've been writing as long as I can remember and all of my stories always held a thread of romance (even when I was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his eyes). I love creating unique characters, love giving them happy endings and I even love the voices in my head. There's no other job I would rather be doing. In September 2002, when I got the call that Silhouette Desire wanted to buy my first book, Desert Warrior, it was a dream come true. I hope to continue living the dream until I keel over of old age on my keyboard.

I was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. I also spent three years living and working in Japan, during which time I took the chance to travel around Asia. I’m back in New Zealand now, but I’m always plotting new trips. If you’d like to see some of my travel snapshots, have a look at the Travel Diary page (updated every month).

So far, I've worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher and not necessarily in that order. Some might call that inconsistency but I call it grist for the writer's mill.
