~ Shards Of Hope by Nalini Singh ~
The “smoldering heat, epic romance, and awesome action” of Nalini Singh’s New York Times bestselling series continues as two Arrows find themselves caught in a chilling conspiracy that spans all three races…
Awakening wounded in a darkened cell, their psychic abilities blocked, Aden and Zaira know they must escape. But when the lethal soldiers break free from their mysterious prison, they find themselves in a harsh, inhospitable landscape far from civilization. Their only hope for survival is to make it to the hidden home of a predatory changeling pack that doesn’t welcome outsiders.
And they must survive. A shadowy enemy has put a target on the back of the Arrow squad, an enemy that cannot be permitted to succeed in its deadly campaign. Aden will cross any line to keep his people safe for this new future, where even an assassin might have hope of a life beyond blood and death and pain. Zaira has no such hope. She knows she’s too damaged to return from the abyss. Her driving goal is to protect Aden, protect the only person who has ever come back for her no matter what.
This time, even Aden’s passionate determination may not be enough—because the emotionless chill of Silence existed for a reason. For the violent, and the insane, and the irreparably broken…like Zaira.
~ My review ~
I liked Shards Of Hope, but I didn’t love it. One of the reasons for me is that the first 10 books were just better, because the couples actually were Psy + Changeling and the last three books it was just Psy + Psy. I miss how the changeling “corrupted” the psy to allow his or her feelings.
Another reason was that I liked Aden and Zaira as individuals, but I did not like them as a couple. Not really. I just felt no sexual tension between them, no sparks, nothing.
I liked the story in general though and how the storyline progresses.
Then there is another thing bothering me, which has nothing to do with my rating. I just want to say it once. 14 Euros for an ebook is insane! I could buy four other books for 14 Euros! I will buy the next book in series, when it gets out as a paperback… I’m just a poor students… I don’t have that much money laying around.
Also I know this is a really short review, I just don’t feel like writing more. I’m kind of disappointed by Shards Of Hope and have to hole up alone to be sad about it.
