Short or long- any story by Nalini Singh in this series is a winner. She has a gift for developing characters, settings, and romances no matter the length. Even stories away from the action of the main series plots resonate with me. The short stories and novellas like Wild Embrace are so worth it.
I’ve come late to this series so I’ve decided to read through the novels and novellas and shorts chronologically. Therefore, I’ve taken about four months to work through this anthology a bit at a time and I did mini-reviews on each story separately.
Echo of Silence #2.5
Stefan and Tazia’s story was poignant and I enjoyed their tentative courtship while working together and then serving together on a mission that allows them to grow closer. They connected and worked to understand and appreciate each other. The pair were so good for each other and I loved the whole story. Of all the stories in this anthology, this one would probably be the only one that the reading order isn’t as important.
This series of vignettes about Dorian definitely need to be read after Hostage to Pleasure to be fully appreciated. I loved getting the story of his early years and a bit of an extension on what comes after the events of Hostage to Pleasure. It was a heartwarming triumph for a steady, loyal hero and pack member
Partners in Persuasion #11.5
I enjoy how the author takes the time throughout this series to assign significance to pack order and not just for the alphas and dominants, but what it is like for submissives and that submissive isn’t a synonym for weak. This was a thoughtful and intriguing story of a male submissive wolf and female dominant cat. Respectful, heartwarming, and passionate.
Flirtation of Fate #12.1
Kenji and Garnet’s second chance was an engaging romance and cunning mystery all in one. Kenji had his reasons for breaking it off and it made some sense particularly when he was young and reeling from the bad news, but it was frustrating that he made the decision for both of them by breaking everything off. Love their playful flirty moments and loved that during their time apart both have grown and matured especially Garnet.
So, this was a fabulous set of four novellas that were well developed and added another wonderful layer to the PsyChangling series. All were strong stories that I was glad to get. Definitely recommend not skipping the chance at these.
