MY PICK THIS WEEK (and it's a looooooong wait):
Book Title: Shield of Winter
Author: Nalini Singh
Book Series: Psy-Changeling, Book 13
Genres: Urban Fantasy
Release Date: June 4, 2014
Assassin. Soldier. Arrow. That is who Vasic is, who he will always be. His soul drenched in blood, his conscience heavy with the weight of all he’s done, he exists in the shadows, far from the hope his people can almost touch—if only they do not first drown in the murderous insanity of a lethal contagion. To stop the wave of death, Vasic must complete the simplest and most difficult mission of his life.
For if the Psy race is to survive, the empaths must wake…
Having rebuilt her life after medical “treatment” that violated her mind and sought to stifle her abilities, Ivy should have run from the black-clad Arrow with eyes of winter frost. But Ivy Jane has never done what she should. Now, she'll fight for her people, and for this Arrow who stands as her living shield, yet believes he is beyond redemption. But as the world turns to screaming crimson, even Ivy’s fierce will may not be enough to save Vasic from the cold darkness…
This series was the first Urban Fantasy series that I read, and it continues to be much beloved. Nalini Singh is beyond talented. This world is so rich, full of amazing characters and a unique, bad-ass plot. I could go on and on about how great it and she is, but check it out for yourself. Slave to Sensation is the first book.
