Summary from Goodreads.com
My Review: I was hesitant to start this book because there are no changelings in it and I really thought I was going to miss them. Yeah, nope, Dev definitely makes up for the lack of changelings in this story. He is actually just as protective as a changeling (which is on of my favorite changeling qualities) and incredibly intense, so I was more than happy to follow along with him.
The woman he falls for, Katya, is a Psy, but she shows more emotion than any Psy I have ever seen, which was another bonus. No Silence to have her work through and try to disable. The reason she is free of Silence is actually heartbreaking and something I am not going to go into because I think you need to read it for yourself. I was always afraid that these books were going to hit a routine with the Psy stories, but Nalini keeps coming up with ingenuous ways to have these characters develop so I am never bored.
A little heads up though, this book is going to make you cry. I am not usually a crier but this book really yanked at my heart strings, I couldn’t help it. I even knew certain events were coming and I still cried. I think I was just trying to deny the inevitable, but it always seems to catch up with you doesn’t it? Okay enough about that, you are going to have to read the book yourself to see if it plays on your emotions too.
Blaze of Memory is a fantastic addition to the psy/changeling world. Even though changelings are the not main focus of this story we still get little snippets of their world, which was enough to keep me happy. So go check out this series if you haven’t already I am sure you will love it just as much as me.
