We are really looking forward to the latest chapter in bestselling author Nalini Singh's Psy/Changeling series, this month's Kiss of Snow — and we know you are too. Fans of the series have been clamoring to find out more about Hawke and Sienna since the series starter, Slave To Sensation. So to get you caught up on what's been happening between the mentally gifted Psy and the animal shifters known as Changelings, we are giving you a chance to win the series' nine-book backlist before Singh's new release hits shelves at the end of May.
The author chatted with RT Executive Editor Faygie Levy about her popular paranormal series in the June issue of RT BOOK REVIEWS magazine. In the article “A Kiss of Romance, Times Two,” Singh gives an insider's look at the evolution of the series and talks a bit about what you can expect from Kiss of Snow.
And if that doesn't have you convinced that Kiss of Snow should definitely be in your TBR pile, each day for the next two weeks RT's Web Editor (and uber-fan) Morgan Doremus will reveal the reasons why she thinks Kiss of Snow is so great.
Morgan's Top 10 Reasons Why You Need To Read Kiss Of Snow
Reason #10: New readers will get to meet the full cast of characters in the Psy/Changling series and returning fans will get to spend time with their favorite characters (including a very pregnant Sascha).
Reason #9: We learn more about the younger generation of the SnowDancer and DarkRiver packs and I am pleased to report that the potential for books in this series is limitless! I would read a story about any one of these characters (especially the Alpha-in-training Kit).
Reason #8: Despite his position as leader of the SnowDancers, Hawke is teased mercilessly when he begins courting Sienna. (The scene where Brenna catches Hawke calling his Psy “pretty baby” is hilarious).
Reason #7: The secondary romance between Psy Walker and Changling healer Lara is super sweet and acts as a great foil for what is happening in the more volatile relationship between Hawke and Sienna.
Reason #6: Sienna doesn’t lose her sass, even after she falls for Hawke. She is young and he is her dominant, but she stays her own person.
Reason #5: The series moves away from mere politics and internal struggle into actual out-and-out war. Yes, people get hurt for real, which ups the stakes.
Reason #4: Hawke finally opens up about his past and why he hates the Psy so much, and no, it is not why you think.
Reason #3: We finally get to read about Haweke and Sienna's first meeting in a flashback. Anyone who says this pair was not destined to be together will be silenced with this one scene ...
Reason #2: Sienna finally gets to have some fun: dancing on the bar at a local club. And Hawke finally gets to have some fun: dancing in the moonlight with Sienna.
Reason #1: A love like Hawke and Sienna's doesn't come around too often, and the fact that we've been delaying our gratification for nine books makes the story even better!
