Review by wyvernfriend
Clay Bennett is a DarkRiver sentinel, he's a changeling leopard and his life is filled with protecting those he cares for, just like he did when he was younger and he killed a man who was damaging his friend Talin. Now he thinks she's dead and it's left a hole in his heart.Talin McKade hadn't died, she had tried to distance herself from her past and allow him to do the same. She had survived her childhood and now works to help street children survive and find better lives. Only some of them are disappearing. Now the only person who can help her is Clay. To add to her problems she's dying...I liked it, the two characters had to deal with a lot of their issues before they found each other, and it wasn't an easy trip. There are more twists and turns about the Psionic community that is coming out. Enjoyable.
Review by Cynical_Ames
I didn't enjoy this one as much as the others. I loved Clay but Tally was harder to love despite her vulnerability and sad past. <br/><br/>The complex Psy have a complicated and frightening history. Each revelation about them reveals another reason to fear and loathe those responsible for implementing and maintaining Silence, and those who wish to take it a step further by trying to create a hive mind, thereby completely destroying individuality and the freedom of choice. <br/><br/>The edgy political relationship between the three races grows more intense with each book. The Ghost is just that -a ghost, to be able to do the things he does. Even without the romance the intriguing plot progression would keep me turning those pages. I <i>need</i> to know what happens next. <br/><br/>This series feeds my need for romance <i>and</i> keeps my brain occupied with deadly conspiracies and struggles for power.
