Review: Ocean Light by Nalini Singh

Ocean Light just released a couple of weeks ago — a new installment in one of my favorite series, set in one of my favorite paranormal worlds, and written by one of my favorite authors, Nalini Singh. So I somehow found time to read it, in spite of my schedule, and I wanted to let you know how I liked it.

Goodreads Synopsis

Security specialist Bowen Knight has come back from the dead. But there's a ticking time bomb in his head: a chip implanted to block telepathic interference that could fail at any moment — taking his brain along with it. With no time to waste, he should be back on land helping the Human Alliance. Instead, he's at the bottom of the ocean, consumed with an enigmatic changeling...

Kaia Luna may have traded in science for being a chef, but she won't hide the facts of Bo's condition from him or herself. She's suffered too much loss in her life to fall prey to the dangerous charm of a human who is a dead man walking. And she carries a devastating secret Bo could never imagine...

But when Kaia is taken by those who mean her deadly harm, all bets are off. Bo will do anything to get her back — even if it means striking a devil's bargain and giving up his mind to the enemy.

My Thoughts

This book is the second installment of the Psy-Changeling series spin-off called Psy-Changeling Trinity.

Like the synopsis says, it's a story about Bowen, whom we met in previous books, and Kaia, who is a completely new character.

I won't say much about the storyline; I don't want to give any spoilers. However, I will say that this story is connected to the previous books in the Psy-Changeling series. You can enjoy Ocean Light if you haven't read the other books, but I would advise you to read them if you want to fully immerse yourself in the story.

Personally, I've read all the Psy-Changeling books, and can't say that this one is something mind-blowing and new. The story itself is enjoyable, the main characters are interesting and well written. However, since I have read all the books in this series, this mystery wasn't a big surprise for me. I figured out pretty fast who they were looking for and why.

I did like getting to know the water changelings, they are "the new kids on the block". We've had cats, wolves, rats, and other changelings, but not water changelings.

I will always read the new books in this long and fun series. That's why I read them, after all: they are fun, hopeful, and positive. Not all of them are amazing or excellent, but most of them are. Nalini Singh has managed to write interesting stories and characters, she's kept this amazing world going, and she's built it into a complicated and interesting universe that just keeps on giving.

If you want to read about the Psy-Changeling series itself, here's my review. More books have been released since my review, but it will help you decide if this remarkable series is for you.

I rate Ocean Light:
