I won't bother going into detail about the plot of this book since the other reviewers have already done an excellent job of that. I will start by stating that Nalini Singh has done it again and written another page turner with a strong story arc that just keeps getting better and better as her books in this series continue. It is obvious that she has taken a lot of time, effort and done some strong editing to make this series, and the world building within it, the best, most tightly focused and complex that it could possibly be. Obviously she has seriously thought through this current story arc which will come to an end in book 10 of the series(Hawkes YEAH!!). For that reason alone I cannot recommend this book as a stand alone, there is just too much back story that is relevant to the current book, and though enough is explained within it not to be lost, knowing what has happened in the previous books adds a richness all its own to reading this one.

This author knows how to keep her world building believable(if such a thing is possible in a paranormal) and consistant throughout all seven books. I especially appreciate this since another well known author ruined any paranormal series for me for a long time with her 'swiss cheese' world building and urban fantasy switch five books into an otherwise fantastic vampire romance series. Nalini Singh has given me faith in following through on another paranormal series again and that means a great deal to an avid reader like myself.

As for the story itself, I must admit that I wasn't expecting much from this one since I do have a real weakness for the changeling world and its culture(and those yummy changeling men!)and am just not as interested in the human part of the world. Well, I was proven wrong with this book.

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.

Finished reading Blaze of Memory a few hours ago. It pains me to say it, but for me the book was an utter disappointment. It wasn't a BAD book -- I doubt Singh can write a BAD book -- but I found it to be...boring. Nothing much seems to happen.

An abused amnesiac shows up on the doorstep of Dev Santos, the leader of the Shine Foundation. Dev and the others deduce her identity quickly, and just as quickly, Katya herself realizes and acknowledges outloud that Councillor Ming has "programmed" her to kill Dev. Dev can't trust her, but at the same time, he's drawn to her, sexually and emotionally, and she arouses all his possessive and protective instincts. And that pretty much seemed to be the entirety of the book. The whole book read to me like one prolonged foreplay session and (rather tepid) sex scene.

There was the usual Council stuff, but even with that, I can't say that there was a lot of forward momentum or that anything particularly noteworthy happened (except maybe at the very end).

Another observation I made while reading the book is that the psy women too often strike me as being somewhat childish. I'm sure it has to do with their awakening to emotion for the first time. That's probably what gives them that childlike quality. In this book in particular, all that wide-eyed wonder and the veneer of "Ooooh....shiny!" grated on my nerves. Sascha and Shaya and the others started that way for me, too, but they also seemed to have a reservoir of strength and self-sufficiency that made them more appealing. Katya, on the other hand, was just TOO helpless and innocent and vulnerable for my liking.
