Slave to Sensation

Official information

Slave to Sensation Author: Nalini Singh
Series: Psy-Changelings

Publisher: Berkley

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

In a world that denies emotions, where the ruling Psy punish any sign of desire, Sascha Duncan must conceal the feelings that brand her as flawed. To reveal them would be to sentence herself to the horror of "rehabilitation"- the complete psychic erasure of everything she ever was...

Both human and animal, Lucas Hunter is a Changeling hungry for the very sensations the Psy disdain. After centuries of uneasy co-existence, these two races are now on the verge of war over the brutal murders of several Changeling women. Lucas is determined to find the Psy killer who butchered his packmate, and Sascha is his ticket into their closely guarded society. But he soon discovers that this ice-cold Psy is very capable of passion-and that the animal in him is fascinated by her. Caught between their conflicting worlds, Lucas and Sascha must remain bound to their identities-or sacrifice everything for a taste of darkest temptation...

My review

My inner critic can't seem to shut up whenever I finish a book. Sometimes even when I am still reading, but Slave to Sensation left it speechless. And it is a very rare thing, because even if I like the characters, the plot is too predictable, or if the world is fascinating, but the writing is lacking. Here however, the whole package is simply terrific.

The idea of the world shown in the book is fresh and interesting. Characters and especially heroes are strong alluring creatures. The plot has all the danger, mystery and twists required for enjoying yourself immensely. Nalini Singh is a wonderful author not only capable of bringing her characters to life, but straight out of the page and into the reader's heart.

Lucas and Sascha are exceptionally strong and their interactions are guaranteed to glue the reader to his (hers) seat. Not only that, but the secondary characters have the depth a lot of heroes could envy. In few words, Slave to Sensation is a fantastic, touching and one of the most captivating stories I've ever read. A definite must read! And reread!
