Book review:

I had been hearing so much about Nalini Singh since years and then I picked up Rock Courtship by her which released just a few months ago and wow, I loved her writing style.
Having enjoyed that book, I bought several of her books, including this one.

Slave to Sensation is the first book in the bestselling, Psy-Changeling series by Nalini Singh and when I saw it for the first time, I instantly loved the blurb which made me remember, Lora Leigh's The Breeds series. However,  Slave to Sensation is a different book and a new story but written just as brilliantly and plotted just as expertly as The Breeds series.

I saw several covers for this book and they all are beautiful but we get the real taste of the story only when we start reading it. Engaged right from the first page, I was impressed by the detailed world building, the thoroughly planned racial characteristics of Psy and Changelings and the conflicts between them that nowhere looked unbelievable. I was able to visualize a world where Psy and Changelings live among the humans without us being aware of their existence!


The writing is simple, fluid and captivating. I was caught in the dilemmas, hurt and fear faced by our heroine, Sascha Duncan who has always been alone, unloved by her own mother and fearing her emotions which can lead her to be terminated. Amidst all this heart squeezing unhappiness and yearning, in comes our hero and I was floored by his intensity while also being impressed by his protectiveness towards his own people and being the hopeless romantic that I am, I wanted my heroine to have a happily-ever-after with him.


Apart from the protagonists, the supporting characters are also endearing people and both the positive and the negative characters impressed me. Now after reading this book, I cant wait to read the next books in the series with the hope of getting to read more about these supporting characters, maybe read their own story. :)


All in all,  Slave to Sensation is an engrossing story that can be re-read multiple times and I loved it thoroughly. Strongly recommended to all romance lovers above the age of eighteen, I give it 4.5 out of 5 and hope to read more of Nalini's books in the future. Go read her books and enjoy! :)
