Book Description

The author of Shards of Hope and Shield of Winter presents a Psy/Changeling novel in which two people who know evil intimately must unlock the good within their icy hearts...

As an Arrow, an elite soldier in the Psy Council ranks, Judd Lauren was forced to do terrible things in the name of his people. Now a defector, his dark abilities have made him the most deadly of assassins - cold, pitiless, unfeeling. Until he meets Brenna...

Brenna Shane Kincaid was an innocent before she was abducted - and had her mind violated - by a serial killer. Her sense of evil runs so deep, she fears she could become a killer herself. Then the first dead body is found, victim of a familiar madness. Judd is her only hope, yet her sensual changeling side rebels against the inhuman chill of his personality, even as desire explodes between them. Shocking and raw, their passion is a danger that threatens not only their hearts, but their very lives...

    5.0 out of 5 stars The Third Psy/Changling Novel September 8, 2007
    Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
    Judd Lauren is a Psy, he is also an Arrow, one of the elite fighting forces of the Psy Council. He and his family now reside with the Snowdancer, Changling Clan. His family was ordered to be reeducated which means their minds would be destroyed. They escaped to the Wolf-Changling Clan thinking they would be killed but the children would live. However, the Snowdancers have accepted the whole family into their protection. The children are assimilating and learning to face and use their emotions. But Judd is still Psy and his mind is locked into the protocol of Silence. Any amount of emotion causes the pain of dissonance and can ultimately cause his death.

    Brenna Kincaid was tortured and her mind destroyed by a Psy. He abducted her and over a week tore through her mind and cut and hurt her body. When she was rescued she was in a coma, and Sasha a renegade E-Psy who is the mate of Lucas, leader of the Leopard Clan was the only one who could reach her. She is steadily drawn to Judd. She finds it hard to understand why since he is Psy, but he calls to her in every way. She is determined to reach his emotions and she knows, somehow, that he is not indifferent to her.

    Judd constantly pushes her away, but when he realizes someone is out to hurt her again all his walls start to crumble. Judd is a dangerous Psy not just to Brenna but to everyone. He is able to kill with a thought, only with the protocol of Silence is he able to control his emotions. Judd is able to use his abilities for the Clan and to protect those things important to him. Brenna is one of those things and someone is out to hurt her. The one thing Judd will not allow.

    The action is fast the plot involved, and the animosity between the Psy and Changling communities growing.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best Paranormal of 2007! September 4, 2007
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    Incredible! Caressed by Ice is the 3rd book in Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling series. I was lucky enough to be chosen to post an early review and I have to say this book exceeded my high expectations. I thought the Psy-Changeling world couldn't get any better. . .Wow was I wrong! Anyone who doubts a Psy male can equal a changeling male in sexiness and alpha male yummy-ness be assured Judd, the elite Psy soldier, more than earns his own alpha male category!

    Judd's background story is finally revealed and his family members' back story is explored further. There is even a startling revelation about Hawke that really makes for an exciting development for that sexy wolf's future story. The connection and desire between Judd and Brenna is just scorching! I loved how Brenna wouldn't let Judd ignore what was between them and how even as Judd struggled to stay away, he always sought her out. Every scene with Judd and Brenna carried an intensity that has become a trademark for Singh's work. In actuality each character's interaction from Brenn's brothers and packmates to Judd's niece is just so poignant. The plot moves along fast as we find ourselves in a sort of quest by Brenn and Judd to figure out what her kidnapper (from Visions of Heat, 2nd book in series) has done to her mind. The political agenda of the Psy council is a continuing engrossing subplot, its like watching a chess game.
    This story delves further into the Councils underhanded dealings and the changelings counter moves. Singh pulls the reader into the story by creating a graphic world with gripping characters. I hate leaving Singh's world when I've finished her book but I look forward to my next visit! This book is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Caressed by Ice- A Joyfully Recommended Title September 21, 2007
    By M. Nix
    Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
    Judd Lauren is an Arrow, a Psy specially trained to be an enforcer of the rules of Silence on other Psy. He's seen too much and done too much in the name of the Council, only to be sentenced to the hell of rehabilitation along with his entire family. Instead of submitting to rehabilitation, he has taken his family and defected to join the Changelings.

    Brenna Kincaid is the only Changeling to have survived abduction and torture by a sociopathic Psy serial killer. Though she's recovered physically, she's been changed forever by what happened to her. Those changes go far deeper than the hacked off hair and eyes of brown shattered with ice blue. Now she seems to have gained Psy powers as well.

    Can the woman who grew up and thrived on emotion and touch, really reach the man who was trained to shun all emotion?

    I will admit that I am a rabid fan of Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling series and recommend them to just about anyone I can corner long enough. Caressed by Ice is another incredible book in this series. Nalini mixes the passion and hunger of the Judd and Brenna with the societal expectations and complexities to come out with a story that made me devour it in a single sitting. I couldn't bear to put it down while so completely engaged and there wasn't a single spot in the story that I wasn't eagerly awaiting a new development. I'm completely in awe of Nalini's storytelling abilities and the fascinating world she has created. Now I can't wait for the next story to come out. I highly recommend Caressed by Ice to anyone who wants a rich, complex and often heart-wrenching story that culminates in a most powerful love.
