Book Review of Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh

Title: Slave to Sensation

Author: Nalini Singh

Release Date: September 5, 2006

Nalini Singh dives into a world torn apart by a powerful race with phenomenal powers of the mind-and none of the heart.

Born a Psy, Sascha Duncan must hide the emotions which mark her as flawed. But a passionate Changeling will tempt her to reveal everything-and risk her very soul.

Summary from Goodreads.com

My Review: I got this book as a Labor Day present (we decided to give each other books to celebrate this holiday) from my friend Monica from The Bibliophilic Book Blog.  She and I have such similar tastes and anything she sends my way I read.  I have gotten enough awesome recommendations from her to trust her completely now so when she suggested this series I picked it up and dove in.

I am so glad I listened to her because this book was awesome!  It was a totally new mythology and I ate up every word of it.  I loved learning about the Psy and their cold and logical life.  Their lives are so dominated by reason that they often miss out on all the fun things in life such as: happiness, love, warmth, basically all the things Changelings lives for.  Which is why watching a Changeling Alpha try to win over a Psy was more than amusing.  I loved the relationship between Lucas and Sascha, watching them try and work through their feelings for each other and not submit to them.

I also liked that this book introduced two completely new species to us because I had no preconceptions going in and I loved that!  I know that the changelings do have some similar charterers to “were” but they are still different enough to keep me very interested.  What also kept me reading on was learning about how the Psy get into the minds of others and work through different barriers to get information.  It was fascinating to me and I could not read fast enough towards the end of the book because everything was coming together so quickly and it was really intriguing.

Basically, this is an awesome paranormal romance and I am so glad I have been introduced to this world.  While the book may have come out a couple of years ago, I think the characters and their species are different from anything else out there right now and that is a huge plus.  The only thing I don’t like is the cover, I mean really?  The guy may look alright, but it definitely doesn’t set the tone of the book, well not for me at least.

Even though I am not a fan of the cover art, that has nothing to do with the author or the story.  So if you have not found this series yet, you should go out and get this book, because I think you will like it just as much as I did 🙂
