    As much as I've enjoyed meeting the bears and spending time underwater with Blacksea in the last couple of books (and I am really hoping we'll get to spend more time with ALL of them!) I was still really excited that

    would take us back to where it all began with the SnowDancer pack. I can't help it, I've loved this series for such a long time that spending time with the wolves (and the cats of DarkRiver) just feels like coming home and it was so wonderful to catch up with all the famil

    As much as I've enjoyed meeting the bears and spending time underwater with Blacksea in the last couple of books (and I am really hoping we'll get to spend more time with ALL of them!) I was still really excited that

    would take us back to where it all began with the SnowDancer pack. I can't help it, I've loved this series for such a long time that spending time with the wolves (and the cats of DarkRiver) just feels like coming home and it was so wonderful to catch up with all the familiar faces.

    We've met Alexi before, he's one of Hawke's lieutenants and is a powerful member of the pack. Strong but caring and very protective of the ones he loves, he holds himself at a distance from the others due to some dangerous family history. He has good reason to fear the future but meeting Memory gives him a reason to fight for what he wants. Memory is a brand new character, she's a Psy who has been held captive for decades and although that would have sent many people completely insane she's a survivor who made it through. She isn't like a lot of the Psy we've met before, she never managed to achieve Silence so she's much warmer than I expected. I'm not going to say much about her abilities but she's always believed they are a curse and that she's evil but working alongside the empaths and the Arrows she starts to realise that she is capable of more than she ever imagined.

    These two have a lot going against them, the least of which is that her captor is hunting her determined to get her back under his control, but they both know what they want and they're willing to fight for it. One of the things I love most about

    stories is that she never manufactures unnecessary dramas, instead she focuses on creating well rounded characters with believable motivations. It is always so easy to love her characters and even the side characters who have never been in the spotlight feel like old friends.

    It goes without saying that her world building is phenomenal too, the Psy-Changeling world is so full of depth that it's hard to believe it isn't a real place. I love the way the balance has been changing between the changelings, humans and psy since the fall of silence and that the different groups are starting to realise how much they all need each other. Things was always much easier amongst the changelings and humans but the psy are now learning so much more about themselves and the others.

    As well as being a fabulous romance

    really moves the overarching plot forward too and I can't wait to see where the story takes us next.

    books just never disappoint!

    Yay, it’s been confirmed. This next book will feature Snow Dancer’s very own Lieutenant, Alexei.

    Have a look at Nalini’s newsletter to see an excerpt from her working draft featuring Alexai... and from the sounds of it, the main female Psy will be named Memory. I can’t wait until June 😝🙌🏽

    And I cannot wait to hopefully catch up with the characters we all know and love. I feel like the Psy-Changeling-Trinity “season 2” so far, hasn’t been

    impactful. So I really hope this book changes all of that.

    I remember how the third book featuring Judd and Brenna just somehow changed everything for me in this series. And I’m hoping that somehow Wolf Rain will bring that spark back. Well, here’s to hoping 😊

    I cannot wait to read this!! :)

    Nalini is one of my favourite pnr/ urban fantasy authors, and this series is one of my all time favourites! So, I KNOW this book will be amazing!

    I’ve missed the wolves of SnowDancer. They, and DarkRiver, will always have the most special place in my changeling-loving heart, simply because they were the first. I’ll never get over their unique personalities, their love and care, or the vastness of their packs. They are large packs, but still family. You can feel it in all their interactions, and it’s like coming home for me.

    Fair warning. Spoilers abound for any and all of the previous books in the series. Just trust me and go start at the

    Fair warning. Spoilers abound for any and all of the previous books in the series. Just trust me and go start at the beginning with

    . Even if you don’t love every book as you go along (and there are eighteen now), the world building alone is worth continuing this series. One of my favorites things about this series is the inclusiveness, and it's something I've only briefly touched on before.

    The characters are wildly diverse and unique, to the point where it feels celebrated. The characters come from so many different cultures and have varied customs, making the world feel every bit as interesting as it is. The subtle and strong underlying theme of differences being not only accepted but being necessary for survival in the world is refreshing. If I could ask for one thing, it would be more LGBT inclusion. I recall a couple of side characters shown as gay earlier in the series.

    added a couple more that we actually got some page time with. I'd just love to see more.

    That wish aside...when I re-read every year, the romances get me right in the heart. This ever-expanding cast of characters and how well they love each other continues to capture my heart and mind.

    I have my favorites in the series, I think everyone does, and when they show up again for more screen time in the newest book it always makes me grin.

    gave me plenty of reason for smiles. Being back in California, with SnowDancer ensures that we’re going to meet with plenty of previous heroes and heroines. I loved seeing Lucas, Sasha, Hawke, Mercy, Kaleb, and so many others. It was a nice moment when we got to see their lives happily continuing on, even when some of them aren't mentioned by name.

    As usual, at least for me, the main couple took center stage. I immediately fell in love with Memory. She’s a fascinating and strong heroine that I couldn’t get enough of. I loved that even though we were in her heart and head a good portion of the time, we began to understand her at the same rate Alexei did. She doubted her own self enough, in the beginning, that she was a bit of an unreliable narrator. I think it’s easy to know – because this is Nalini Singh, after all – that she was a “good” person. There is good reason for her to think that her Psy talent is more a curse, and that just made this so much more interesting.

    Alexei, we’ve met before, but I loved seeing deeper into his soul and heart. He’s got this huge heart that only wants to protect everyone, even from himself. I loved his playful side, and his courting. Seeing the wolves court their mates is one of my favorite things.

    It was easy to see why they fell in love with each other. Their interactions with each other are incredibly sigh-worthy.

    I really appreciated that despite the fact that they both had legitimate concerns about how they may harm someone they love, they worked through it together. It didn’t stop them from talking about it. Nor did it keep them apart. There was no manufactured drama here. Even when fighting their own feelings, they both understood what they had with each other and fought

    that.

    This book combined all of my favorite elements – the “original” changelings, Psy and Changeling falling in love, favorite characters come back for more screen-time, and some very real pressing and imperative obstacles and concerns.

    As always, I can’t wait for the next Nalini Singh book. I think I’ll go re-read all 18 books (and the many short stories and bonus stories) in this series in the meantime.

    More on

    Initial thoughts: Love heading back to SnowDancer. Love Alexei. Especially love Memory.

    Definitely (even more) in the mood for a series re-read now.

    Just when I thought this world couldn't get any more expansive, Nalini Singh comes and proves me wrong.

    Despite the familiar characters and setting, this book explores some new territory in the Psy-Changeling world. It's both fascinating and terrifying at the same time.

    Nalini Singh not only expanded the Psy-Changeling world, she also deepened it. We get more insight into the PsyNet and its ongoing deterioration and the efforts the ruling coalition are doing to temper and solve it. It's exciting but also scary because Nalini introduced some unknowns into the mix which made me want to read the next book ASAP!

    But I'm getting ahead of myself. Wolf Rain is first and foremost, Alexei and Memory's story.

    Alexei is one of the SnowDancer lieutenants with a tragic history while Memory is a new character with some very interesting capabilities. Changeling-Psy pairings have always been my favorite and this pair is no exception.

    I loved how their relationship developed. Both Alexei and Memory are broken in their own way, Memory especially. She needed so TLC and Alexei was the perfect person who gave it to her. I'm seriously considering my Nalini Singh hero ranking now that I've met Alexei. He's definitely among my favorites now.

    If you're a long time fan of the series, you won't want to miss Wolf Rain. It not only gives us the familiar characters we knew and loved, it introduces us to new and exciting ones, too. I know I sound like a broken record but I cannot wait to read the next book. I hope it's about who I think it'll be about. 😂

    Can anyone ever have enough of Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling world. Well now that she is three books into the Psy-Changeling Trinity world, we don’t have to worry about it.

    In this installment, the Snowdancer Lieutenant Alexei is coming up on the 1 year anniversary of his brother’s death. He has been functioning as a shell of himself since the loss.

    In this installment, the Snowdancer Lieutenant Alexei is coming up on the 1 year anniversary of his brother’s death. He has been functioning as a shell of himself since the loss.

    Deciding to take a run into the deep wilderness by himself sounds like the perfect way to avoid more contact with his packmates. While running Alexei is almost brought down by overwhelming grief. He quickly discovers that it is not his own and searchers for the source. Alexei finds a hidden Psy bunker. Breaking into the bunker he finds a Psy-E being held prisoner in the bunker and rescues her.

    Memory has been held prisoner by an insane psychopath teleporter / telekinetic since she was 7 years old. Now a grow woman she is faced with a new world outside the bunker. After all she has been through, she is still courageous and strong and quite possibly a top contender in my favorite character list from this series.

    Immediate attraction is felt by both Memory and Alexei, but Alexei tries to hold himself back from the precocious Psy. But that is challenge Memory is up for even recovering from her years of confinement, she isn’t going to miss another day of living.

    There should be no surprise that I LOVED THIS BOOK. If you haven’t read Nalini Singh, YOU. ARE. MISSING. OUT!

    Magical romances, fantastic fantasy, amazing paranormal aspects, what more can a reader ask for.

    It's still surprises me that there are 18 books in this series and I've read every single one of them??

    This is one of the best Paranormal world's that I've ever read about and I don't think I'll ever get enough of it.

    The Psy Network is failing and the only thing holding it together are the Empath Psy. In this book we follow the story of a new type of E named Memory and Snowdancer lieutenant Alexei.

    I always like the books with a changeling/psy relationship most. Alexei we've seen glimpses of in previous books but he's really changed in this one. Team up a big grumpy wolf and an Empath and you get the cutest pair ever.

    I know I've been nagging that I wanted this book to be set in the Russian wolf pack but we haven't been in the Snowdancer pack for 5 books and it was so great to see how everyone's doing and all my faves. I really enjoyed this one but I'm still a bit miffed that we didn't get any Walker/Lara scenes tho.

    I can't wait for the next installment and to be completely honest I won't mind if this series goes on for another 20 books.

    So this book is going to be about Snowdancer Leutenent Alexei and Memory. I am gutted over the fact that

    (If anyone remembers who Memory is please let me know. Ha! I didn't even mean for that to be funny ; ))

    Was hoping for more from the bears but won't mind if this one is about the Russian wolf pack. I DON'T EVEN CARE, IT'S MORE NALINI SINGH! I AM TRASH FOR THIS SERIES

    As always it was wonderful visiting my favorite pack. I have a weakness for wolf shifters, and when I found out about the title and the blurb I was ecstatic.

    I really was intrigued by the blurb.

    Memory, even though she was kidnapped for many year, didn’t lose her feistiness or sass. She was a female character I adored for her strong will, endurance and strength to know what she wanted even if it seemed to make no sense. She was one of those characters whose personality spoke to me immediately. And

    I really was intrigued by the blurb.

    Memory, even though she was kidnapped for many year, didn’t lose her feistiness or sass. She was a female character I adored for her strong will, endurance and strength to know what she wanted even if it seemed to make no sense. She was one of those characters whose personality spoke to me immediately. And she meshed beautifully with her growly wolf.

    Alexei was a typical wolf, approachable, protective, and always knew how to handle Memory. He was tuned into her to a fantastic degree and made them incredibly compatible as a couple.

    I really enjoyed Memory and Alexei together. Smart and funny dialogues had me laughing out loud. And their chemistry was palpable. Even though Memory was inexperienced she had no trouble distinguishing her feelings and because of that she was steps ahead of Alexei. Him catching up was endearing and a source of continuous amusement.

    As always the author had many new dangers lurking around corners. Forces that threatened the overall survival of Psy and PsyNet. The overall story arc is still moving along, it might have taken a little breather in Wolf Rain, but there is definitley movement. And of course I’m wondering what’s coming next. At this point I wouldn’t mind for favorite couples to get another book. Krycheck for example is just too interesting for him not have a second book. Because his power is truly one of a kind.

    Throughout Wolf Rain the author revisits old and popular characters, and gives the reader small glimpses into their present lives. These glimpses are somewhat satisfying but might make this book not the ideal book to start this series with. There are just too many characters that are being mentioned. So start with book one and enjoy the ride.

    I was SO excited to go back to the Psy-Changeling world with this newest installment...And even more excited that we would be seeing it through the eyes of SnowDancer.

    SnowDancer is my favorite setting within this world, bar none (which I have discussed in previous series reviews ad nauseam), so to get to go back and relish that environment for yet another fantastic Singh book was incomparable.

    SnowDancer is my favorite setting within this world, bar none (which I have discussed in previous series reviews ad nauseam), so to get to go back and relish that environment for yet another fantastic Singh book was incomparable.

    I really loved Memory and Alexei together.

    Memory was fierce and feisty and I loved their interactions and romance.

    Also, in addition to Memory and Alexei's story arc, there was a new dimension added to the overlying Trinity story arc.

    Nalini Singh never fails to surprise and dazzle with her creative and intelligent plots and world-building. Just when I think she has nowhere else to go plot-wise, she finds another whole pathway rife with new plot-fodder, characters, and relationships. It really is incredible.

    However, I think my favorite part of this world as a whole (besides Hawke, of course *wink*) is the underlying message of unity, the quest for peace, and the multicultural, multi-racial, multi-specie nature of the world and its characters.

    Cannot wait for the next book in the series.

    This is like going to a high school reunion except that nobody got older, fatter, balder, and their marriages are still just like they are on their honeymoon. Yeah, realistic.

    Beardy has a point.

    But in this case, this reunion is awesome for anyone who has read this series. All of your favorites are here, including my fav- Kaleb.

    Our new couple is Alexei, a wolf shifter from the Snowdancer pack, and Memory, a psy girl who was imprisoned all of her life. Alexei rescues her from captivity and then ..

    Well, yeah, but it's not that bad, dude. You might need a Snickers.

    Plus, the angst is followed by:

    Yeah, um there was a little more heat than that. But, you get what I mean.

    It was a good story in the background too, with hints at what is to come. Nalini Singh can build the crap out of complicated, awesome worlds.
