Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh

Rating: 3 stars

Series: Psy-Changeling #1

The world building was my favorite part of the book. It was definitely original. There are humans, changelings, and psy. Changelings are various types of weres. They were fairly standard as far as weres go. The psy were unique. They were people with various types of mental powers and abilities. All of the psy were connected on a mental internet. It was believed that the psy had too many emotional issues, and the only way to get rid of the bad emotions was to wipe out all emotions.

Sascha lived 100 years after the emotions of the psy were altered. By then most psy weren’t aware that they ever had emotions. Sascha knew that the psy who weren’t perfect were killed, and she wasn’t perfect. She had emotions and had to hide them. Lucas, a changeling, walked into her office proposing a business deal. The deal required them to work closely together. Of course romance ensues.

The romance was the downfall of the story. It was steamy enough but had too many overused romantic tropes. There was definitely some insta love going on. I hate it when that happens because the characters don’t really take the time to get to know each other. The mystery was also disappointing. It was far too easy to figure out who the murder was especially since there weren’t any red herrings. After all of the great things I’ve heard about this series, I felt let down. I expected it to be less predictable.

  1. I tried audiobooks for the first time while working out…and this was the book. I was torn between being distracted by the voice of the reader and the story itself. Needless to say, it became a little hazardous for me to try to work out and read at the same time.
