Review by wyvernfriend
The ending was a little deus-ex-machina but knowing Singh there will be consequences for this later. Nothing is ever straightforward and ignorable. Katya is almost presented to Dev on a plate, she's amnesiac and troubled, her mind is a mess and her shielding is almost impenetrable, however they both have a feeling that there's something wrong. Dev feels a need to help her, even if it should hurt him. Katya is hurting, unsure of her sanity she's trying hard to deal with everything that's happening to her, unsure of what's been done to her and what she's going to do. She has nightmares and compulsions and her life will never be the same again.The two of them are psionic, she was one of the silenced, but they betrayed her and the psy-net is breaking into pieces, more and more psions are going psycotic and there will have to be something done.This is proving to be an interesting series, I liked this look at the opposing sides of the psionic battle, there are some appearances by shapeshifters in this one but most of it is the psions, and you learn more about the history of the psions and the changes in their lives when silence was embraced historically through some period journal entries. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next
