Clay Bennett is a powerful DarkRiver sentinel, but he grew up in the slums with his human mother, never knowing his changeling father. As a young boy without the bonds of Pack, he tried to stifle his animal nature. He failed…and committed the most extreme act of violence, killing a man and losing his best friend, Talin, in the bloody aftermath. Everything good in him died the day he was told that she, too, was dead.
Talin McKade barely survived a childhood drenched in bloodshed and terror. Now a new nightmare is stalking her life–the street children she works to protect are disappearing and turning up dead. Determined to keep them safe, she unlocks the darkest secret in her heart and returns to ask the help of the strongest man she knows…
Clay lost Talin once. He will not let her go again, his hunger to possess her, a clawing need born of the leopard within. As they race to save the innocent, Clay and Talin must face the violent truths of their past…or lose everything that ever mattered. - via GoodReads
I’m trying to keep up with the Psy/Changeling read-along schedule. Unfortunately I didn’t get Mine to Possess by Nalini Singh read in time for the chat. I finished it the day after.
Things are really starting to pick up in the potential war coming between the Psy and the Changelings. There was also quite a bit of mystery in the events of the past between Clay and Talin. There’s a fair amount of suspense also in the storyline involving the kidnapping of children. Four books in and Singh is still surprising me with unexpected allies and new layers to the world she’s creating. I’m still pretty eager to see where we’re going.
Honestly I don’t seem to love the couple in their own books. I liked Clay and Talin just fine but I didn’t love them. I am always happy to see the characters when they come back in future books. There are also so many characters in these books. I think that’s another of Singh’s strengths. She populates her books with many and varied characters but introduces them slowly and gives readers the chance to get to know them.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I’m very excited to see where we’re going!
