The next addition to the Psy-Changeling Trinity series is ALPHA NIGHT, a romance between a not-so-silent Psy and an alpha Wolf. Nalini Singh is at the top of her game with ALPHA NIGHT! A wonderful addition to the series, and a lovely focus on the romance between a strong female changeling and the wounded Psy who loves her.
Selenka is the alpha of her wolf pack in Russia. She’s dedicated to her people, including the empaths visiting her city for a major conference. She and her pack are helping with the security, so when a major incident occurs, she’s on site to see the powerful Psy who stops an attacker cold.
For Ethan, his normal disassociation from feeling turns into a fascination for the beautiful, strong wolf alpha. He’s totally fixated on her strength, and though he has never experienced love in any form, he feels for Selenka. And that “feeling” can be dangerous for a man with his skill-set.
The corrupt Consortium wish to destroy the alliance, and they’re willing to use anyone and anything to achieve their goals. In their crossfire are Selenka and Ethan–who has an agenda no one, not even his fellow Arrows, know about. And that secret could be disastrous. Especially when his power continues to build, to the point of destroying him.
ALPHA NIGHT brings back the awesome changelings, this time the wolves Selenka leads, and it’s fascinating to see her leadership and her relationships with her wolves, especially her father. Ethan is a terrific hero, wounded and wrong in so many ways, yet pure of heart. The danger in this story is real, and only by working together can Ethan and Selenka hope to overcome so many hurdles. And Ethan’s just might kill him.
I think the author did an incredible job conveying Ethan’s myriad issues and his need for control. The delicate balance of care and dominance really made this story shine, as Singh paid particular attention to the deeper emotional issues in her characters.
ALPHA NIGHT is a must-read for Psy-Changeling fans, and a triumph for the talented queen of paranormal romance, Nalini Singh.
