About the book

Security specialist Bowen Knight has come back from the dead. But there’s a ticking time bomb in his head: a chip implanted to block telepathic interference that could fail at any moment–taking his brain along with it. With no time to waste, he should be back on land helping the Human Alliance. Instead, he’s at the bottom of the ocean, consumed with an enigmatic changeling…

Kaia Luna may have traded in science for being a chef, but she won’t hide the facts of Bo’s condition from him or herself. She’s suffered too much loss in her life to fall prey to the dangerous charm of a human who is a dead man walking. And she carries a devastating secret Bo could never imagine…

But when Kaia is taken by those who mean her deadly harm, all bets are off. Bo will do anything to get her back–even if it means striking a devil’s bargain and giving up his mind to the enemy…

My Thoughts

The Psy-Changeling series is one of my all time favorite series so I just HAD to read this book as soon as I could get my hands on it. I have to admit I was a little leery about Bowen as the hero because he never really had grabbed me from his appearances in previous books but he did win me over. He actually turned out to be a great hero and I loved watching he and Kaia dance around each other and eventually overcome their natural distrust of each others people. They’re also both trying to heal from past hurts inflicted upon them by each other’s race and it’s not easy to overcome. The supporting characters who help them throughout the book are great AND we even get to see some more of Kaleb in this book which just about made my day. I LOVE Kaleb!

The story line itself held a few surprises I didn’t see coming and made the story line that much more enjoyable for avoiding predictability. We are introduced to some new characters and get a deeper look into the Black Sea changelings. I definitely hope we get to see more of Kaia’s brothers in future books. There were times where I felt the story did drag a bit and keeps this from being a 5 star but still a great read.
