New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh dives beneath the surface of her Psy-Changeling world into a story of passionate devotion and selfless love...
Security specialist Bowen Knight has come back from the dead. But there's a ticking time bomb in his head: a chip implanted to block telepathic interference that could fail at any moment--taking his brain along with it. With no time to waste, he should be back on land helping the Human Alliance. Instead, he's at the bottom of the ocean, consumed with an enigmatic changeling...
Kaia Luna may have traded in science for being a chef, but she won't hide the facts of Bo's condition from him or herself. She's suffered too much loss in her life to fall prey to the dangerous charm of a human who is a dead man walking. And she carries a devastating secret Bo could never imagine...
But when Kaia is taken by those who mean her deadly harm, all bets are off. Bo will do anything to get her back--even if it means striking a devil's bargain and giving up his mind to the enemy...
Reading this book was so fantastic! Bo's been a part of the series for a long while now, and Kaia is new to me, and I think new to the series, so it was great to both meet her, and watch these two interact! So great to read!
One of the most fantastic things about this book, for me, was the setting. I mean, the bottom of the ocean? That doesn't really happen all that often! This is also the first full length novel with a BlackSea changeling member being one of the leading characters. Oh, not to mention that BlackSea changelings make up the majority of the cast, mostly because it's their installation at the bottom of the sea!
The chip that Bo had implanted in his head to prevent Psy intrusion, and how they're trying to keep it from killing him is one of the 3 main thrusts of this story, the romance is another, and the final one is the BlackSea members kidnappings. They all had a certain amount of tension, given how they were woven together!
I really enjoyed watching all the interactions between Kaia and Bo, and with the other new characters as well, because there was just a lot of rich history that didn't need explaining, and it was very comforting!
This book was fantastic, I loved how everything worked out, and I can't wait for the next book!
