“Then how are we—” Holly stared at the backpacklike thing he held up with a wicked grin. “Is that a parachute?”

Rock Addiction
Rock Addiction (Rock Kiss) (Volume 1) - Nalini Singh
Finally, a new adult book I really enjoyed. 
The minute Fox sees Molly he is drawn to her. Molly is interested too and decides to go for it. They each have pasts (and family) that suck, but they've overcome that part.
This was refreshing. It's a little angsty, but not too bad. They talk and communicate. Yeah, they might have sex first, but the communicating gets done. No misunderstanding in this one, just 2 people getting to know one another.
The things that I didn't care for: Molly was a virgin to Fox's vast sexual experience (but to the book's credit, this was dealt with quickly and not dwelt upon). I also thought Fox was too bossy, too alpha. Again, Molly was able (and did) stand up for herself.

Shield of Winter
Shield of Winter (A Psy/Changeling Novel) - Nalini Singh

While this book is about Ivy and Vasic, it is also about the aftermath of Silence.  There are repercussions from Silence's fall and people are dying.  There was a big learning about regarding the empaths and what they can do.

I did enjoy reading about the Arrows and how they are choosing their jobs and what they do (and I'm excited for Aden's book).  This is a Psy-Psy pairing (as is the next book) and there are some Changeling bits in this one, but not much.  Overall this is much more serious in tone.  The sexy-times are fairly tame from previous books too.

I did take a little bit of time to get invested in this one, but once I did, it was hard to put down.  There is still a threat from Ming that (I assume) will be dealt with in a later book.  I did think the ending was a little rushed (with regard to Ivy's solution regarding the Infected).

Each empath can "link" with a certain # pending on their gradient, creating a "Honeycomb."

Ocean Light (Psy-Changeling Novel, A) - Nalini Singh

I had an uneasy feeling about it when confronted with the heroine's anti-human attitude. Fortunately, she got over it pretty quickly.

 

I... think maybe some of the issues some had with this was due to a new setting and completely new cast of characters. Sure we saw a few familiar faces but most seem to be new. OTOH, I didn't hear any complaints about Aiden's book - similarly isolated for a good part of the book. So I can only guess that since the book seemed to be almost entirely from Bowen's pov, that perhaps there wasn't a good enough feel for how everything worked. Or maybe BlackSea isn't that interesting to people. Who knows. I didn't mind. I did find it a bit bemusing that *both* the changelings working with the Dr were moles. That seems a bit of a stretch there.

 

re: gills - apparently *all* the aquatic changelings have them regardless of their alternate form, which leads to...how did Kaia almost drown when she shifted by accident after being caught in a net as a kid?

 

BTW, I hope Aiden the walrus doesn't get his own book. That would be a bit confusing.
