Separated from her son and forced to create a neural implant that will mean the effective enslavement of her psychically gifted race.  Ashaya Aleine is the perfect Psy—cool, calm, emotionless—at least on the surface.  Inside, she’s fighting a desperate battle to save her son and free them both form the vicious cold of the PsyNet.  Yet when escape comes, it leads not to safety but to the lethal danger of a sniper’s embrace.  DarkRiver sniper Dorian Christensen lost his sister to a Psy killer.  Though he lacks the changeling ability to shift into animal form, his leopard lives within.  And that leopard’s rage at the brutal loss is a clawing darkness that hungers for vengeance.  Falling for a Psy has never been on Dorian’s agenda, but charged with protecting Ashaya and her son, he discovers that passion has a way of changing the rules…

 

Yet another pleaser by Singh.  The fracturing of The Silence and the infighting amongst the Psy continues to build as Ashaya and Dorian face each of their own personal demons.  I’ve always adored Dorian, so was thrilled to see him get his own story, and Singh didn’t disappoint.  Ashaya’s reasons for keeping Silence were real and riveting (don’t want to spoil anything by revealing here).  Both characters are proud and determined to do the right thing for their families, even at great cost to themselves.  When they finally come together, it’s pure combustion.  While I love all of these books, the world is complex enough at this point that I would recommend reading them from the beginning so you get the full impact.
