Kiss of snow (Psy-Changeling #10) Nalini Singh

Since her defection from the PsyNet and into the SnowDancer wolf pack, Sienna Lauren has had one weakness: Hawke. Alpha and dangerous, he lost the woman who would've been his mate long ago. Now he walks alone. But Sienna stirs his primal heart, even as he tells himself she is far too young to handle the wild fury of the wolf. Yet as they strip away each other's secrets, a deadly enemy is striking at everything the pack holds dear...but Sienna's darkest secret may savage the pack that is her home-and the alpha who is its heartbeat.

Ren's Review
A great book to start a new year! I don't want it to end!
Ms.Nalini, is a uber genius author when it comes to writing an original world building, strong heroine and yummy heroes =)

I am confused about where to start this review. Because Kiss of Snow is the tenth book of the Psy-Changeling series. And the story is actually such a conclusion between two main characters, Lauren Sienna and Hawke. They had met starting from the first book, Slave to Sensation and they ignite some sparks between them. Not to mention the original idea of ​​the three kind of human races, both kinds are always in war.So if you're not loyal fans, it may be difficult for you to read these books out of order.

It takes place in a futuristic world, human beings are divided into three races. Ordinary people, people who have super powers relating to the mind that is Psy, and the men who were gifted by ability to change shape into animals or shape shifter, it’s called “Changeling". Everything changes when the Psy activates Silence, which makes them lose all of their emotions. The goal of Silence to prevent them from the madness and desire to kill. While Changeling and human united, the Psy control the economy.

The Psy-Changeling series originally started slowly, some of the Psy lost control of the Silence and begin to feel emotions. They are also sided with the real enemy of theirs, the Changeling, and work together with them. They’re  some couples between Psy and Changeling in the previous books.

Sienna Lauren and Hawke is one of the Psy and Changeling's couple. Sienna who just turned 20 years, have long harbored a feeling to Hawke,the alpha wolf in San Francisco's Changeling, SnowDancer. Hawke also had saved Lauren families, who are a fugitives in the world of Psy. But Hawke still remember his mate,who died at very young age. It makes him believe he will never have a mate.He avoids Sienna, as much as possible. Sienna herself has problems. In addition to all this,there’s a huge age difference.(Hawke is about 30-35 years old), Sienna is an X-Psy, the kind that has a  dangerous and deadly ability.Sienna is afraid she would harm Hawke and the SnowDancers. Now it all depends on Hawke. How he overcomes his fear of living alone and struggling with his feeling toward Sienna. Since both wolf and human wanted that red-haired girl with eyes like the stars constellation. To be with him, forever.

What makes me love Kiss of Snow more is, in addition to the story of Sienna and Hawke, there's also a companion story to the characters, between Sienna's uncle, Walker Lauren and Lara, a healer in SnowDancer. Nalini's writing style is slow placed, but I love it! Maybe some people that are impatient will be cranky, but I think the slow pace of this book makes it beautiful. Nalini's choice of words are  exquisite. She’s able to tell Sienna and Hawke's story that has a huge age gape, in a normal way. Makes us want to have boyfriend and husband like Hawke! He's so stubborn, arrogant and stuck in his bitter past. But wait until he finally chase Sienna. Wow!

Overall, Psy Changeling series and Kiss of the Snow is a must read for many Paranormal Romance's hardcore fans! Compared with the Guild Hunter series, Psy Changeling series is more complicated, but not so dark, not too cruel and sadistic. The tone is more cheerful and colorful, but that does not mean it will make the story so easily understood. I suggest you start with “Slave to Sensation” first, so you can enjoy this one :)
