Books: Slave to Sensation, by Nalini Singh

Slave to Sensation, by Nalini Singh. Paranormal romance. Paperback, 338 pages. First in the Psy-Changeling series. Giveawaybox

I either need more plot to my porn or more porn to my plot. The ratio was just off somehow.

That said, it was a pretty good book. I have read more about various were-people and shapechangers than psychics, so that was the aspect of the story that I found the most fascinating. Singh has created a world of emotionally-controlled, brilliant, talented people with a high rate of insanity (psychopathic tendencies), and then contrasted them to the stereotypical hot-blooded, volatile were-people. Regular old humans are not even introduced with names in this book.

The plot was the typical killer-on-the-loose; race war will happen if the killer isn't found/stopped. There was some amount of spy, counterspy, fall for the Other, etc.

I picked it up because I'd read two short stories in this universe from anthologies. I recommend it as light reading to people who enjoy modern urban fantasy with lots of hot "I've never done that" pages.
