--One Sentence Summary--
When Faith begins to see visions outside her boring business predictions she knows she needs answers from someone outside the Psy race.
--What are the Issues--
Faith has only ever known her protected and sheltered life among the Psy, and DarkRiver leopard Vaughn challenges everything she's ever believed. Vaughn wants Faith's loyalty and love but he's an aggressive Sentinel leopard and being patient isn't easy for him.
--What I Liked and Didn't Like--
A Deeper Understanding of the World -- As things are revealed to Faith it's heartbreaking to see just how much the Psy race has lost their humanity and crippled their growth. The reader sees some of this in the previous book as Sascha realizes her empathic abilities, but to see how coldly the Psy have restricted their foreseers in order to make money is sad.
Strong Emotional Connections -- Singh, as usual, writes so much emotion into her story and her characters. You really feel like you know them and want to be with them on this journey. Faith was initially much colder than Sascha because emotion wasn't her gift. But her inherent curiosity and her trust in her instincts leads her to grow and develop as a character. I liked seeing her explore what life was like outside her compound and realize just how strong she was.
Uber Dominant Hero -- Vaughn was a very dominant male who's animal half is much closer to the surface. I thought Singh did an amazing job showing how the changelings truly are a balance of human and animal. Often times, authors will have the two halves at odds or conflicted but these changelings celebrate what they are. Vaughn might have a stronger animal side than most but he embraces what he is. Sometimes he could be a little too alpha but he apologized the few times he stepped over the line. There is true beauty in the harmony Singh has given her changeling characters.
This was a fantastic sequel to Slave to Sensation that takes the reader deeper into the Psy-Changeling universe.
Visions of Heat is a re-read for me. I loved it the first time around and just as much the second. This series is so much fun to re-visit. In Visions of Heat get to learn what makes Faith and Vaughn tick and we get to see the changes they both go through, throughout the story.
Faith is an F-Psy. She is valued by her community and also a rarity among her people. I very much enjoyed watching her character growth, the changes she goes through, and how she becomes stronger then what she thought she was. The Psy seam to have this quiet strength among them.
Vaughn is more wild and possessive; because of his past. It makes him a very intriguing Alpha male to read about. I very much enjoyed his character growth and his all or nothing attitude.
As always Ms. Singh’s writing is superb and impressive. Each time I pick up one of her books I am sucked into the world and taken on a magnificent adventure. I very much enjoyed watching Faith and Vaughn come together and grow, as well as the mystery on who is killing people that they work to solve.
I liked the book, but I wanted more of a different direction for the story. It almost follows the same pattern as book one. While I realize it's early in the series and probably the reason why Singh decided to stick a little closer to home, I don't want the series to continually be a case of Changling falls for Psy. Changling is very possessive of Psy. Psy has to figure out how to get out of PsyNet and still survive. Then how to survive when the council realizes they may be a threat to PsyNet. I just didn't really care too much for Vaughn and Faith's relationship I think because it was so similar to that of Sascha and Lucas. But with Slave to Sensation I liked the mystery of figuring out what was different about Sascha. We don't have that here. We know what Faith is from the beginning and although he may not understand or see all of her abilities, we get the basic concept.
I will say that since there's an overall story arc with the series, it's improtant to read from the beginning and not skip and books. I realize there will be some stories that I like more than others, and just because this installment was less than stellar for me, I'm still interested to see where the story goes. I know that the next book will deal with Judd Lauren and Brenna (a victim in the first book) and already I'm interested. I like it when an authors builds characters up in the background before making them the focus of their own story. I think it makes their spotlight that much better when we know a little about them before starting. Hopefully, this next book will be better.
