Used to cold silence, Faith NightStar is suddenly being tormented by dark visions of blood and murder. A bad sign for anyone, but worse for Faith, an F-Psy with the highly sought after ability to predict the future. Then the visions show her something even more dangerous - aching need...exquisite pleasure. But so powerful is her sight, so fragile the state of her mind, that the very emotions she yearns to embrace could be the end of her.

Changeling Vaughn D'Angelo can take the form of either man or jaguar, but it is his animal side that is overwhelmingly drawn to Faith. The jaguar's instinct is to claim this woman it finds so utterly fascinating and the man has no argument. But while Vaughn craves sensation and hungers to pleasure Faith in every way, desire is a danger that could snap the last threads of her sanity. And there are Psy who need Faith's sight for their own purposes. They must keep her silenced - and keep her from Vaughn.

After Lucas and Sascha uncovered Enrique, Psy Council member, as the serial killer targeting female Changelings, his death was brutal and bloody, the pieces delivered to the remaining members. Which... leaves a vacancy needed to be filled. The two of the possible candidates? Faith NightStar, and Kaleb Krychek. Kaleb comes later. This, is Faith's story.

An F-Psy, Faith is one of the most successful of the Psy with Foresight powers, having made her people billions of dollars. Because of such, she is heavily protected, and managed, within a safehouse near DarkRiver territory. As Faith's visions turn to images of murder, discovering her own sister the victim, Faith makes the reckless decision to abandon her home in search of answers. Answers she hopes to find from the rogue Psy, Sascha Duncan.

These Psy-Changeling books are rough for me. They have their moments when everything is good and yummy, and then, it all turns so boring that I just want to roll over and pass out. I began the series after picking up book thirteen. Pages in I realized this was not a world one just dives into. I needed a foundation. I needed book one.

So I grabbed up the entire series thus far, and I don't know if I'll make it through every one, but I can say, they're worth the attempt.

3 out of 5 stars.
