Book Review: BONDS OF JUSTICE by NALINI SINGH

Hello Readers, welcome back to my blog. I hope we are all doing great and enjoying ourselves now that shops are open again. I want to book a nail appointment but work is so busy right now that I can’t find the time.

This is book number eight in the psy-changeling series; if you have been reading my previous blog post you will know how much I love this series and this love is not fading.

SUMMARY

Max Shannon is a good cop, one of the best in New York Enforcement. Born with a natural shield that protects him against Psy mental invasions, he knows he has little chance of advancement within the Psy-dominated power structure. The last case he expects to be assigned is that of a murderer targeting a Psy Councilor’s closest advisors. And the last woman he expects to compel him in the most sensual of ways is a Psy on the verge of a catastrophic mental fracture . . .

Sophia Russo is a Justice-Psy, cursed with the ability to retrieve memories from men and women so twisted even veteran cops keep their distance. Appointed as Max’s liaison with the Psy, she finds herself fascinated by this human, her frozen heart threatening to thaw with forbidden emotion. But, her mind filled with other people’s nightmares, other people’s evil, she’s standing on the border between sanity and a silken darkness that urges her to take justice into her own hands, to become judge, jury . . . and executioner . . .

Sophia Russo is of the Justice designation. J-Psys have been mentioned in passing in the earlier books of the series but not in details so not a lot is known about them. They work in the enforcement field with humans and changelings, because of the nature of their work they are not long-lived. Sophia is gifted and has survived longer than those of her designation but time is drawing near.

She is partnered with detective Max to solve mysterious deaths around Nikita Duncan. We met Max previously in the series when he was beaten and put in hospital to keep him out of the way of an investigation. Max and Sophia have chemistry but it might bring Sophia closer to her death if she explores it. Sophia is determined to live the rest of her life on her terms even if it shortens her time alive but she wouldn’t explain to Max what it does to her to be with him.

I felt that though this book was part of the series it was a little removed from the usual flow of the other books, which gave it a certain uniqueness. I am starting to see a theme when the other races’ emotions are written about, they all seem to mirror the changeling intensity in emotion as though that is the A star height to aspire towards. It was a lovely read nonetheless.
