Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A love triangle long awaited by fans resolves in Singh's 10th Psy-Changeling installment, the first in hardcover. Sienna Lauren is a rare Psy X who can wreak devastation with cold fire. Sienna has fought hard to control her abilities, knowing she'll most likely burn out and die by age 25, but she can't control her longing for alpha wolf Hawke. Hawke is drawn to her too, but there are barriers between them: age, station, and the death of his destined mate. Hawke and Sienna's fight against their fierce attraction parallels the beginnings of real war against antichangeling Psy factions—a war in which Sienna may have to use the powers that could destroy her. Singh deftly eliminates Sienna's potential love interest and adds a sweet secondary romance that contrasts with the violent intensity of Sienna and Hawke's relationship. First-time readers may be a little overwhelmed, but fans who have been longing for this story will not be disappointed. (June)

By far the best book in the series so far. The tension, the passion, the will they, won't they, just sucked me right in and would not let go of me. BOOK GIRL OF MUR-Y-CASTELL --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Hawke's book has been highly anticipated by me since I first read Slave to Sensation, the first book in this wonderful Psy/Changeling series. Over the past year I've tried to subdue that anticipation as much as possible - sure that it could only lead to disappointment.

I couldn't have been more wrong.

This is the story I've been waiting for. The sexual tension between Hawke and Sienna is nearly explosive. Hawke doesn't take too long to come around to the decision that his wolf has been pushing him towards - pursue Sienna. It might take a little creativity on Sienna's part, but once he does; Oh boy. There are a few `almost' moments, where Hawke and Sienna's courting is interrupted by everything from injuries to Psy scouting parties to outright attacks, and you could feel the frustration, as well as the responsibility in each of those moments.

Hawke was the same alpha that I've always loved. The alpha who has feral wolves claiming him as their own alpha. In this dangerous war with the Psy, Hawke barely has time to set aside his responsibilities. So he never does. He and Sienna steal small moments, with the help of their Pack, and they don't give up on what they have together.

Learning more about Sienna, and what she has grown up with, what she's grown up expecting - to die before she reaches 25 - was heart-wrenching at times. And yet she always managed to impress me with the way she's managed to become such a strong young woman. She is absolutely more than a match for Hawke. But she's so much more than a perfect match for him, she's a fierce, beautiful, determined, resourceful woman that's not afraid to take chances with her heart, and will protect those she cares about, no matter the cost to herself.

In addition to the long awaited pairing of Snow Dancer wolf alpha Hawke and Psy Sienna Lauren, Kiss of Snow offers a big showdown between the Psy and the wolves, the birth of Lucas and Sascha's child and a second romance between Sienna's uncle Walker and pack healer Lara - as well as tons of cameos from the huge cast of the now ten book long series.

As the sum of its parts, I liked Kiss of Snow. The parts where the Snow Dancer's make preemptive strikes against the Psy and the final battle was both climactic and emotionally intense. And I enjoyed seeing Lucas and Sascha, and was thrilled to witness their new arrival and what a powerful nurturing instinct the baby stirs up in all of the predatory Changelings.

Now to Hawke and Sienna, while I wasn't exactly disappointed, their story isn't exactly what I'd hoped for either. Some of the intensity that Singh builds early on (and has been building for several books) is lessened by trying to draw the tension out way too long. Multiple times Singh stokes the fire between Hawke and Sienna and puts them in a situations where emotions (and attraction) are running high and then fades to black, leaving us wonder how they managed to avoid taking the next step when there has always been the feeling that should Hawke ever lower his barriers even for an instant, his wolf would claim Sienna in the most primal way. Add to that frequent interruptions every time that things start to get hot and heavy between them later in the book, plus thread switches to other story lines, and the result is that when they finally do come together it just wasn't as explosive as it could have been had some of the earlier situations been allowed to reach their natural conclusions.

We have waited forever for these two to get together and then they get their book and they SHARE IT! What?! Really?! Hawke and Sienna don't even get an entire book? About 20% was devoted to Lara and Walker. Another 25% was war.

And then there were at least two scenes that we get a part of and they suddenly stop and we are stuck with their internal monologues several pages later which tells us what we missed!

It left me feeling cheated.

I love Nalini Singh and this was supposed to be the ultimate book. Hawke and Sienna. OMG. I have waited and waited for this book. I told people to not bother talking to me on 5/31 b/c I would be reading Kiss of Snow. So yeah, I had high expectations but I don't think wanting more scenes between the two characters is unreasonable.

In the world of the Psy, being anything other than cold and emotionless can get you killed - or worse. Sienna Lauren's family defected from the PsyNet when she was a teenager, seeking refuge with the powerful SnowDancer pack. In Sienna's case, life free of the Silence Protocol is both a precious gift and an incredible threat. For Sienna is an X-Psy, a rare designation whose powers leave her a ticking time bomb. Sienna can't ever give into her powers, not when doing so would not only kill her, but everyone around her. At nineteen, Sienna is far older than her years. Nothing can shatter her control. Nothing except Hawke.

At fifteen, wolf changeling Hawke became alpha of a broken pack. His history is steeped in bloodshed, pain, and loss, but from that foundation he worked to make SnowDancer into one of the most powerful packs in the world. Though he loves his pack, Hawke is, in many ways, a lone wolf. Wolves only mate once and Hawke lost the girl who would be his mate during childhood. Yet something about the beautiful, brilliant Sienna calls to Hawke in a way he cannot push aside. She knocks him off balance, making him want things he knows he cannot - should not - have. So he puts distance between them, burying his desire for Sienna.

Only Sienna will no longer be ignored. She wants all or nothing and Hawke knows that if he turns her away, he'll lose her forever. One kiss is all it takes for their passion to blaze out of control. But before Hawke and Sienna have a chance to explore what's growing between them, an enemy launches a vicious attack that endangers everything the lovers hold dear. Soon they are in for the fight of their lives as a war unlike anyone has ever seen threatens to consume them all.
