Format: Mass Market Paperback
We met Max Shannon, the human cop, in one of the earlier books in the series. He is friends with Tally and Clay, members of the Dark River shapeshifter pack. While being handsome and strong, Max is regular in most ways except for the natural mental shield that he has against Psy manipulation. It's been both a blessing and a curse for him. He is not at the mercy of Psy influence, however in the Psy-dominiated world it has hindered his ability to gain promotions into the upper ranks. So when a Psy Council member asks for him to be assigned a special case, he is very surprised.

A Justice Psy, Sophia Russo is used to interacting within the human court system. She regularly comes in contact with the worst offenders, reading their memories and then providing evidence to help in their prosecution. But J-Psys usually only last around 12 years before their shields break down and they must be rehabilitated (i.e., they go crazy and are turned into vegetables). She's worked in the field for more years than most and her shields are on the edge of fracturing. She's not surprised to be called out of the field and assigned to a special case for a Council member--for her is it the beginning of the end?

I was surprised at the author's choice of main characters for this installment. There are so many other characters that seem more interesting and I've been hoping for their stories. That being said, Singh made me connect with these characters as the story progressed, and overall I enjoyed the book.

The world building and plotline were well done. I enjoyed the storylines working the mystery for the council member and also the Bonner case. It was good to see the politics of the Council further developed--seemed to have a good setup for the next book.

Max Shannon is a human cop for the New York Enforcement with a gift that allows him peace. His mind has a strong natural shield that excludes him from the suggestions that are sometimes planted in his fellow officers' minds by the Psy. This has also precluded him from rising in the ranks, but Max doesn't mind as long as he is sure he's the one making the decisions in regards to his cases. Knowing this it comes as a huge surprise when he's tapped as a special investigator by a Psy Councilor, and not just any Psy Councilor, but Nikita Duncan herself. And he won't be working alone...

Sophia Russo has been a J (Justice) for over 12 years. The long active period has left her with terrifyingly thin shields and she knows it's just a matter of time before she's called in for that final rehabilitation that all Js must either succumb to, or escape from through death. Having first met Max on the case of a sociopath, Sophia was intrigued by, and attracted to, him - something a perfect Psy would never be. Sophia is a long ways from the perfect Psy though, and has been for longer than she's been a J. Knowing her interest in Max will only lead her more quickly to her final end, she's relieved (and disappointed) when she's out of his presence. But then she's called to be Max's liaison and partner on this new deadly case for Nikita.

Can they find out who's killing those close to Nikita before they strike again? Will the bonds Max and Sophia form be strong enough to save them both?

I have to admit, in this world of the Psy/Changelings I was not that interested in the main couple going into this book because of the human hero. I'm not afraid to admit when I am wrong. And boy was I wrong. At a glance humans are the very lowest of the three races.

Bonds of Justice, the eighth book in Nalini Singh's fabulous Pay-Changeling series, is a great read. When it comes to reading this series, I'm at the point where I really can no long find the words to describe what it feels like reading this vast array of characters and their journey to reach their hard won HEA's. Every time I read a Psy-Changeling novel, it feels like I'm coming home. Nalini's characters are like family to me.

Now two new characters have been welcomed into the fold. Max Shannon is a human detective who works in New York Enforcement. Max is special in his own way because he has mental shields that the Psy can't break through. Max is working a very specific case dealing with Gerard Bonner, a serial killer called the Butcher of Park Avenue. Also called on the case is Sophia Russo, a J-Psy, who has the ability to retrieve memories from people. She has helped crack many cases and will try to go deep into Bonner's mind to find the bodies of the missing women he has murdered and buried. Something about Sophia makes Max stop and take notice. Unfortunately, the same goes for Bonner. But then Max is taken off the Bonner case and ordered to investigate a crime in San Francisco. Someone is targeting and killing the Psy Councilors' closest advisors. And if this killer isn't stopped and fast, the high ranking Councilors may be next.

Max heads off to San Francisco and is in for a surprise when he finds out that Sophia will be his partner. Sophia is more than willing to help because she believes she doesn't have much time left. As a J-Psy, her mental capacities are breaking down.
