This is box title
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 coexistence, 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…

Synopsis from Goodreads.com

Slave to Sensation is the first book in the Psy-Changeling series by Nalini Singh. If you haven’t started this series…well, why have you been waiting! The world that Nalini Singh has woven is intricate and scary at the same time. Psy are humans that have an ability on a physic level and their mind is linked together. Emotions have been driven out of the race and any hint of emotions causes the individual to be rehabilitated, but really made a vegetable.

Then there is the changelings. From wolves, leopards, birds, rats, bears, snakes…you name it there is a changeling pack for them. Lucas is a changeling alpha. He has ulterior motives for working with Sascha. Sascha is cold, but Lucas can feel the underlying heat of her soul just wanting to be set free.

Woven into a love story is a world unlike what we know. There is incredible detail to the Psy-Net and almost confusing in its depth. But without that depth we would be lost as the story progressed from book to book.

Just starting to read Nalini Singh…


I really need to get my hand son that series! I love Nalini’s Guild Hunter series and I’m sure I would enjoy that one too. Good pick!


I have not read it yet because it is new to me (I know I know what rock have I been hiding under?). I don’t know–but I really need to branch out a little. 🙂
