Book Shelf: Silver Silence (Psy-Changeling Trinity #1) by Nalini Singh

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh introduces a bold new chapter in her extraordinary paranormal romance saga with the Psy-Changeling Trinity series. Wild passion will encounter the darkest of betrayal...

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...

Silver Silence is the first novel in Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling Trinity series and marks the beginning of a new array of full length novels featuring new couples and new romances in our beloved Psy-Changeling world. 

Silver Merchant is a member of one of the most renowned and infamous Psy families. Known for their control, precision and loyalty to family, the Merchant's are a powerful force. As the director of a new worldwide emergency response network she hopes will thrive under the new Trinity Accord, Silver utilizes her Silence as a weapon and has no use for emotion. Valentin Nikolaev is the alpha of the StoneWater bears and knows exactly what he wants; Silver. The seemingly cold as ice woman fascinates him like no other and both bear and man are determined to make Silver theirs. Sensing a hidden fire behind her icy demeanor, Valentin is determined to make Silver feel the powerful emotions he is sure she is capable of. Silver and Valentin may be wildly different, but when an attempt is made on Silver's life and brings the stoic Psy into the heart of bear territory, will the cheeky alpha be able to convince the woman he wants to give in or will Silver's Silence be too strong to break?

What can I say but congratulations to Nalini Singh on another story so very well done! Silver Silence is a perfectly written, paced and explored addition to the story that allows readers to finally see Kaleb's old aid turned humanity aid director Silver Merchant front and center. I've been intergued by Silver ever since she was first introduced to the series as someone in Kaleb's inner circle and I'm thrilled with how Singh wrote her story!

Silver has always come across as a very serious, cold individual so it was wonderful to see her thaw throughout this novel. Even though Silver utilized her abilities through Silence, it was adorable to see the small things start to break through; her appreciation of Valentin's small gifts, her enjoyment of verbally sparring with him and being in his company--this all made it clear there was a softer more vulnerable side to her while still allowing Silver to be the "Silver Fucking Merchant" the world saw. 

And in saying that, so much of Silver's growth and development was thanks to the man determined to win her heart, Valentin. I loved Valentin and thought he was the perfect balance of cheeky, relentless man and capable alpha. It made me smile to no end the lengths Valentin went to for Silver. His actions of courting her were so very endearing to witness. 

The StoneWater bears were a fantastic addition to the series and it was a great dynamic to witness. As with DarkRiver and SnowDancer in the past, I think StoneWater has a lot of potential stories within it as Singh introduced readers to so many personable new characters including Silver's brother Arwen and naughty bear Pavel who I'm hoping will be our first M/M romance in this series down the track. These two definitely have chemistry. 

With plenty of sharp and witty dialogue and some adorable scenes of friendship and family within this rambunctious bear pack, Silver Silence was a highly addictive read that I just devoured. Nalini Singh shows no sign of slowing down where this series is concerned and leaves me DYING to read the next story which features Bowen Knight. Bring it on!
