In a world that denies emotions, where the ruling Psy punish any sign of desire, Sascha Duncan must conceal the feelings that brand her as flawed. To reveal them would be to sentence herself to the horror of "rehabilitation"--the complete psychic erasure of everything she ever was...
Both human and animal, Lucas Hunter is a Changeling hungry for the very sensations the Psy disdain. After centuries of uneasy coexistence, these two races are now on the verge of war over the brutal murders of several Changeling women. Lucas is determined to find the Psy killer who butchered his packmate, and Sascha is his ticket into their closely guarded society. But he soon discovers that this ice-cold Psy is very capable of passion--and that the animal in him is fascinated by her. Caught between their conflicting worlds, Lucas and Sascha must remain bound to their identities--or sacrifice everything for a taste of darkest temptation...

My Review :
An amazing start for a paranormal series.
For the lovers of the kind, you will find new elements that do not exist in other similar series.
For those that have not tried paranormal before, your expectations will be high from then on for other authors of the same genre.
Nalini's writing style is unique, as she builds a new world from scratch, without leaving gaps in her descriptions or questions.
She writes a complete story, with emotions, lack of emotions (read it and you'll see where I'm going with it), adventure, heartbreak and touch.
It actually makes you crave what you read and try to apply it in real life.
Yeah... not possible, but it is lifechanging in your everyday life and makes you think harded than any other paranormal novel I've ever read!
