Shield of Winter by Nalini Singh
At the beginning of the story, we find Silence has been broken. If I had read the previous books I would know life before this happen, but I didn't and I had to move forward. However, things are a bit chaotic and they are Psy's are trying to find a way to stabilize what is going on, because their race is going psychotic. Basically, the Psy's need to find the Empathy, because they might hold the key to save their race. Of course it's a bit more complex than that.
For someone that hasn't read the previous books, I actually found the story captivating. I'm not saying to anyone who hasn't started to the series to go out get this book, because that wouldn't be wise. After reading Shield of Winter, I want to go back and start from the beginning. I'm amazed on how Nalini has this ability to build this world and suck you into the story. I enjoyed how Vasic and Ivy learn to work together and bond. Cause Vasic is an Arrow and they aren't know for feeling anything. They are basically cold killing machines, and to get paired up with someone that feels everything. It's a pretty hard concept. Ivy is an E-Psy and she feels everything.
Overall, great book. I'm glad I was selected to read Shield of Winter. Now I need to go back and catch up with the rest of the story. I those who have been following the series will still enjoy the storyline and will be anxious to see what comes next.
