Rating: 4.5 Stars
New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh dives beneath the surface of her Psy-Changeling world into a story of passionate devotion and selfless love…
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…
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with an advance copy of Ocean Light for an honest review.
Ocean Light is smart, dynamic, with a perfect slow burning romance! I really enjoyed diving into the deep with this book. I have always loved sea creatures and mythological creatures that are from the sea, so to read a book with different types of changelings from the ocean was so cool.
It is understandable that humans and especially the sea changelings would be cautious of each other. So many humans hunt creatures in the water and humans are at a disadvantage in the water.
Bowen was shot and should be dead but he isn’t. Instead Bo is deep in sea, hooked up to machines and has a new mechanical heart. They want to run an experiment on him that could help his people but could kill him in the process. This experiment could make him vulnerable to the one thing he has fought so hard to never again let himself be a victim of, Psy.
Kaia has never been so attracted to any man but she can’t forget what Bo is responsible for according to her best-friend. Kaia’s friend Hugo let her know that the Human Alliance and Bo were responsible for BlackSea’s people being taken and killed. Now Hugo is missing too. She has to remind herself that even though he doesn’t seem like the man that would do this, Hugo wouldn’t have lied and he had evidence.
Can Kaia and Bowen see past their fears? Who is responsible for taking BlackSea’s people? You have to read to find out!
Ocean Light is a sweet, fun, action, and swoon. This is the type of paranormal I really enjoy! I loved Silver Silence and loved the idea of BlackSea and the characters but wanted more of them in their animal form and transitioning. I am in love with Bowen and hoping for more of him in the future! I would definitely recommend and I am giving it 4.5 out 5 stars.
I’ve been writing as long as I can remember and all of my stories always held a thread of romance (even when I was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his eyes). I love creating unique characters, love giving them happy endings and I even love the voices in my head. There’s no other job I would rather be doing. In September 2002, when I got the call that Silhouette Desire wanted to buy my first book, Desert Warrior, it was a dream come true. I hope to continue living the dream until I keel over of old age on my keyboard.
I was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. I also spent three years living and working in Japan, during which time I took the chance to travel around Asia. I’m back in New Zealand now, but I’m always plotting new trips. If you’d like to see some of my travel snapshots, have a look at the Travel Diary page (updated every month).
So far, I’ve worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher and not necessarily in that order. Some might call that inconsistency but I call it grist for the writer’s mill.
