Review- Visions Of Heat by Nalini Singh

Summary-

Hailed as a major new talent in paranormal romance, Nalini Singh takes us deeper into the world of the Psy and the changelings in her latest extraordinary novel, where a gifted woman sees passion in her future - a passion that is absolutely forbidden by her kind...

Used to cold silence, Faith NightStar is suddenly being tormented by dark visions of blood and murder. A bad sign for anyone, but worse for Faith, an F-Psy with the highly sought after ability to predict the future. Then the visions show her something even more dangerous - aching need... exquisite pleasure. But so powerful is her sight, so fragile the state of her mind, that the very emotions she yearns to embrace could be the end of her.

Changeling Vaughn D'Angelo can take either man or jaguar form, but it is his animal side that is overwhelmingly drawn to Faith. The jaguar's instinct is to claim this woman it finds so utterly fascinating, and the man has no argument. But while Vaughn craves sensation and hungers to pleasure Faith in every way, desire is a danger that could snap the last threads of her sanity. And there are Psy who need Faith's sight for their own purposes. They must keep her silenced - and keep her from Vaughn...

Review-

Visions Of Heat is the second book in Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling series. I went into this right after  I  finished reading Slave To Sensation because I just had to find out what happens next in their world even though the first book didn't end on a cliff hanger. Visions Of Heat was really good but I think Lucas and Sascha remain my favorite couple yet.

Faith NightStar is an F-Psy. Which means that she is a Psy with the ability to for see the future. This makes her an invaluable asset to the Council. But now she's having dark visions of the killer who murdered her sister. She knows that she need to figure it out without mental degradation or letting the Psy know. So she goes to Sascha Duncan for help.

I really liked Faith. She was a really strong person but still she had a vulnerability to her. She had to fight herself between what she thought was right and what the truth was. Meeting Vaugh D'Angelo, the man who has his beast, a jaguar so close to the surface was never in the plan. Yet she is completely fascinated by him and vice versa.

I was not completely taken away by Vaughn in the last book with what little we got to see of him. But we get to see his real self in Visions Of Heat. Vaughn has a horrible past, which is why he is the only jaguar in between the leopards in the Dark River territory. He has sworn his loyalty to Lucas and he intends to protect his alpha and his mate, even if the threat is one tiny beautiful woman.

There was a constant push pull between Faith and Vaughn. It was shown extremely well and when all that sexual tension finally reached its peak, the end result was much more than satisfactory. Nalini Singh's books have it all. There's romance, action, a plot filled with mystery and intrigue. I flew through this book as well. The only slight complaint which I have is that it felt similar to the first book. But I hope that gets rectified in book #3. Yet, it was a really good read.

  2. WOW! You're really burning through this series! I can only imagine how addicting it would be. I skimmed this review because I want to start this series someday and I don't want to know who the couples are. I like surprises :) Great review, Janhvi! :)
