Review : Shards of Hope, by Nalini Singh

Book 14: the Psy/Changeling series

Awakening wounded in a darkened cell, their psychic abilities blocked, Aden and Zaira know they must escape. But when the lethal soldiers break free from their mysterious prison, they find themselves in a harsh, inhospitable landscape far from civilization. Their only hope for survival is to make it to the hidden home of a predatory changeling pack that doesn’t welcome outsiders.
And they must survive. A shadowy enemy has put a target on the back of the Arrow squad, an enemy that cannot be permitted to succeed in its deadly campaign. Aden will cross any line to keep his people safe for this new future, where even an assassin might have hope of a life beyond blood and death and pain. Zaira has no such hope. She knows she’s too damaged to return from the abyss. Her driving goal is to protect Aden, protect the only person who has ever come back for her no matter what.
This time, even Aden’s passionate determination may not be enough—because the emotionless chill of Silence existed for a reason. For the violent, and the insane, and the irreparably broken…like Zaira.

My Review :
This is not my favorite Nalini Singh book (sorry, but Hawke always comes first), but it is the most touching,so far.
After specific parts while reading the book, I had to close it and just think. 
It is my personal opinion that this book has the biggest emotional impact, from the others in the series, so far. 
It is a book to be read over and over again and to be used as a guide in life for multiple situations.
Yes, the story is amazing, yes, the characters were complete and yes, once more the writing was amazing and it made me read it in less than a day.
But the emotions stirred by this book will stay with me for years to come.
