As a Jaguar in a pack of leopards, Vaughn has always been on the outside looking in. A loner. Alone. While out scouting, Vaughn’s curiosity is piqued when he stumbles across a secluded house hidden deep in the Sierra Nevadas. The grand house is guarded by Psy guards. Intrigued, Vaughn intends to find out just what treasure the psychics are hiding. He never expects the treasure to come to him.
One of the rarest and most treasured of Psy, Faith has always been on the inside looking out. A seer, Faith is plagued by visions of the future… and recently of murder. When her sister is found dead—murdered—in a way Faith herself has foreseen, she knows she can no longer sit on the sidelines. She makes her escape only to stumble into the arms of a curious changeling. A changeling whose touch overwhelms her senses and stokes her silenced passions.
This book builds upon the first entry into the Psy-Changeling universe. While this book can partially stand on its own, it is definitely improved by having read the first book in the series. Events are referred to that happened in the first book and both Lucas and Sascha make reappearances.
I did like the characters more in this book than I did in the previous book. While I still didn’t love that Vaughn kept overstepping the bounds, the reasons this time were made clear that the boundaries themselves were harmful and Vaughn was making a point that they were. But it’s still not my favorite trope in the world, but at least here the rationale made more sense.
I really liked Faith as a character. I liked her agency and proactiveness especially when everything around her was trying to take away her agency and her individuality and her very sense of self. I like that she struck out on her own and challenged things. She was definitely an interesting character and I do hope to see more of her as the series progresses.
I also really liked something that happened toward the very end with a character that would be a huge spoiler, but I really want to see more of this character in the future.
The plot itself was very standalone. It was similar to the previous book in that it’s a hunt for a killer. But unlike the first book, I was surprised as to who the killer was revealed to be. We also got to see more of some of the other characters in different roles and we’ll see how they progress from there. I’m particularly interested in Judd Lauren, who looks to be the hero of the next book.
In all, this was an enjoyable light read. Five stars.
