“Visions of Heat” by Nalini Singh (Psy-Changeling #2) – Review

Paperback: 352 pages

Publisher: Gollancz

Release Date: March 6, 2007

Series: Psy-Changeling

Hailed as a major new talent in paranormal romance, Nalini Singh takes us deeper into the world of the Psy and the changelings in her latest extraordinary novel, where a gifted woman sees passion in her future – a passion that is absolutely forbidden by her kind… 

Used to cold silence, Faith NightStar is suddenly being tormented by dark visions of blood and murder. A bad sign for anyone, but worse for Faith, an F-Psy with the highly sought after ability to predict the future. Then the visions show her something even more dangerous – aching need… exquisite pleasure. But so powerful is her sight, so fragile the state of her mind, that the very emotions she yearns to embrace could be the end of her. 

Changeling Vaughn D’Angelo can take either man or jaguar form, but it is his animal side that is overwhelmingly drawn to Faith. The jaguar’s instinct is to claim this woman it finds so utterly fascinating, and the man has no argument. But while Vaughn craves sensation and hungers to pleasure Faith in every way, desire is a danger that could snap the last threads of her sanity. And there are Psy who need Faith’s sight for their own purposes. They must keep her silenced – and keep her from Vaughn..”

My Thoughts

“Visions of Heat” is the second book in the Psy-Changeling series by Nalini Singh and a worthy sequel to “Slave to Sensation”. Like with the first book, I was completely blown away. I didn’t expect the sequel to be as good as the first book in the series, but boy was I wrong. I simply did not want it to end.

I really liked Faith, maybe not as much as Sascha, but she was still amazing. Her strength and determination to feel something beyond what she thought was possible impressed the hell out of me. I don’t know many people able to do that. And Vaughn…he was so damn hot! I love my men wild, and he certainly delivered on his part. All possessive, growly and protective. The jaguar in him let loose.

As for the heat, well, let’s just say that this one was way off the scales, possibly even better than the first one. I loved Lucas & Sascha, but Faith and Vaughn were simply magnetic. They were constantly drawn to each other, all logical thought gone. It was mesmerizing to follow. And as for his imagination…well, I strongly suggest you sit down comfortably in your bed while reading this. I sometimes read books in the train while I’m on my way to the university, and as I was reading this, I was actually blushing and laughing. I guess the people on the train thought I was a weirdo, but I so did not care. Their loss, haha!

Aside from the romance and hot sex scenes, the plot was incredibly well structured. I loved the fact that Nalini Singh went deeper into the Psy mentality and issues. The Silence protocol and the NetMind were actually quite fascinating and I found myself wishing I’d thought of these things first.

I absolutely love Nalini Singh’s books. I’m truly addicted. In total there are ten books in this series, with the eleventh coming out in May. I. Cannot. Wait!

So what are you waiting for? Go grab the yourself the first book in the series and then read on, because it’s something truly worth your time.
