Mine to Possess by Nalini Singh

February 20, 2008 at 11:50 am (Reviews) (, , , )

A good way to kick off a new blog about shapeshifters is to review a good shapeshifter book, don’t you think? The problem was, the book I chose wasn’t a good shapeshifter book. I read a great one.

Mine to Possess is the 4th full length release in Nalini Singh’s world of Psy, Humans and Shifters. And what a book it is. Instantly I was drawn in to her world, where Shifters and Psy have an unstable peace, and the Humans are the bridge. While each of her previous full length releases were centered around the Psy/Shifter connection, this installment is the first to delve into the secrets of the humans.

There’s nothing about this book I didn’t enjoy. It’s dark and sexy, filled with the sensuousness of the cat within the hero. He’s hot, so hot. And Powerful. And nothing is more sensuous than a male who’s not afraid to touch. He’s on the edge of sanity, and believes when he sees the heroine that she is a ghost.

The heroine, Talin, is probably the most naturally flawed heroine I’ve read. No, I don’t mean she has an ugly face – she’s got real issues. Issues that authors don’t write about today. And it all felt so real, so agonizingly right. The backstory between the pair is even more real. We don’t hear of it in huge backstory data dumps. Instead, there’s well placed conversation. By the time we as the readers, need to know something, it’s there. Like a puzzle where the pieces actually fit.

If you like them steamy, and sensuous, and you like them dangerous, then read Nalini Singh’s “Mine to Posses.”

    I’m going to be repetitive….but I LOVE this series. The idea of the Psy is so different than a lot of the other paranormals out there that it’s intriguing. I so can’t wait for Hostage to Pleasure to come out in September.

    Hello Teresa.. Congratulations on your new blog. I forgot to come by earlier. We ordered pizza which took over an hour and a half and was stone cold when we received it. Needless to say we won’t be ordering from them again. Anywho, your site looks great, the best of luck to you in the future, your buddy, Angela.
