Cover Breakdown: Nalini Singh's Silver Silence

When Nalini Singh announced her new Psy-Changeling Trinity series, our squee was heard around the world! Trinity is meant to be a continuation of the original Psy-Changeling series and Singh encourages readers to think of it as season two. Though she referred to the new series as "the Trinity arc," the stories will not all focus on Trinity Accord. In fact, the first book in the series, Silver Silence, follows a character we are already quite familiar with— Silver Mercant. Since we are absolutely itching to start reading Silver Silence, it made perfect sense to make the book the focus of today's cover breakdown!

Before we break down the cover, a bit more background on the series ...

Sadly we will have to wait until summer to read Silver Silence, but Singh has taken pity on us super fans and has been sharing satisfying little nuggets of information about this much-anticipated book. For one thing, we know that the heroine is Silver Mercant, a member of the powerful Psy family who owns several successful businesses. Silver is the coordinator of the worldwide Emergency Response Network, otherwise known as EmNet. She lives in central Moscow in an area controlled by the BlackEdge wolves. The territory also happens to be adjacent to land controlled by the StoneWater Bear clan, which is led by the alpha Valentin Nikolaev (our hero!).

We've already poured over the cover and uncovered some incredibly intriguing clues about the book! But first, the blurb:

Control. Precision. Family. These are the principles that drive Silver Mercant. At a time when the fledgling Trinity Accord seeks to unite a divided world, with Silver playing a crucial role as director of a worldwide emergency response network, wildness and chaos are the last things she needs in her life. But that’s exactly what Valentin Nikolaev, alpha of the StoneWater Bears, brings with him.

Valentin has never met a more fascinating woman. Though Silver is ruled by Silence—her mind clear of all emotion—Valentin senses a whisper of fire around her. That’s what keeps him climbing apartment buildings to be near her. But when a shadow assassin almost succeeds in poisoning Silver, the stakes become deadly serious…and Silver finds herself in the heart of a powerful bear clan.

Her would-be assassin has no idea what their poison has unleashed...
