Slave to Sensation (Psy-Changeling #1) by Nalini Singh ~ #bookreview #pnr @BerkleyRomance @SignetEclipse

Slave to Sensation (Psy-Changeling #1)


Nalini Singh dives into a world torn apart by a powerful race with phenomenal powers of the mind-and none of the heart.

In a world that denies emotions, where the ruling Psy punish any sign of desire, Sascha Duncan must conceal the feelings that brand her as flawed. To reveal them would be to sentence herself to the horror of "rehabilitation" - the complete psychic erasure of everything she ever was...

Both human and animal, Lucas Hunter is a changeling hungry for the very sensations the Psy disdain. After centuries of uneasy coexistence, these two races are now on the verge of war over the brutal murders of several changeling women. Lucas is determined to find the Psy killer who butchered his packmate, and Sascha is his ticket into their closely guarded society. But he soon discovers that this ice-cold Psy is very capable of passion - and that the animal in him is fascinated by her. Caught between their conflicting worlds, Lucas and Sascha must remain bound to their identities - or sacrifice everything for a taste of darkest temptation.

My Slave to Sensation Review ...

This book was so what I needed.  I have been in a bit of reading rut with a repetitive loop of angst caused by assumptions and miscommunications so reading a different genre was exactly what I needed.  I have had this book on my TBR forever and when Penguin gave me the opportunity to read this first one in the series I jumped on it.  Book 14 Shards of Hope came out today so I was excited to start this series at the same time.   Now I just have to find time to read 13 books so I can catch up.  :)  

Sascha Duncan is a Psy. And the Psy are known to be emotionless creatures that live on logic not emotions.  But Sascha's different.  Because of the Psy's beliefs if she's different then she should be gone in their minds, now she has to hide these flaws to stay alive. 

Lucas Hunter is on the hunt to find a serial killer who is killing changelings, and Sascha's the key to finding out.  Immediately after meeting Sascha he knows something is different about her.  Now he just has to find out if that is going to hinder or help his plan for revenge.  

The more Sascha is with Lucas the more she starts to feel.  The more she feels the more she gets confused.  This part of her feels like the missing link but it also in her mind means death.  For some reason Lucas can't stop touching or being near Sascha.  His inner beast knows why just his human heart and mind haven't caught up. 

As Sascha learns the truth she has to pick sides.  But with a chance to truly feel and live she thinks its worth it,  especially since she won't be long for this world.  Now that Lucas knows what Sascha is to him he will do whatever he can to keep her safe. 

This book was great.  Sure yes it still had some elements of martyrisms and running but that got lost in this paranormal world.   SHARDS OF HOPE (Berkley Hardcover; June 2, 2015), the 14th novel in the series releases today!!!!!   I can't wait to read the rest of this fantastic series.

4 Lucas loving Thumbs up!
