Assassin. Soldier. Arrow. That is who Vasic is, who he will always be. His soul drenched in blood, his conscience heavy with the weight of all he's done, he exists in the shadows, far from the hope his people can almost touch, if only they do not first drown in the murderous insanity of a lethal contagion. To stop the wave of death, Vasic must complete the simplest and most difficult mission of his life. For if the Psy race is to survive, the empaths must wake...Having rebuilt her life after medical "treatment" that violated her mind and sought to suffocate her abilities, Ivy should have run from the black clad Arrow with eyes of winter frost. But Ivy Jane has never done what she should. Now, she'll fight for her people, and for this Arrow who stands as her living shield, yet believes he is beyond redemption. But as the world turns to screaming crimson, even Ivy's fierce will may not be enough to save Vasic from the cold darkness.… (mais)

~ 3.5 Shield of Winter Stars ~

Shield of Winter is book thirteen in the Psy-Changeling series by [a:Nalini Singh|71688|Nalini Singh|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1423312512p2/71688.jpg]. Ms. Singh has built a race as cold as ice, who are merciless killers, but in this book she explores the hidden passion of an Arrow.

It’s always nice to return to the Psy-Changeling world. One of the things I like the most about Ms. Singh is her writing, she does a extraordinary job of describing things so fluently and with so much detail, but the detail can get over the top at times.

Shield of Winter was an enjoyable read, but not an Oh My God one! I have never been a fan of the Psy, though I did enjoy learning more about them, the infection in the Net, and seeing what happens when two Psy can find love. I found it new and refreshing to have two leads be virgin’s. This is something we don’t see in romance books, well this is the first one I have read that has had this aspect. I was also not expecting to like Vasic as much as I did. He came across so sweet and tender, for an Arrow, my heart melted, but he still has that detached personality that the Psy are known for. Ivy, also comes across strong and tender. Her personality complements Vasic. The romance was a slow fiery build of passion making it seam like young love.

As for the plot/storyline there was a lot of conflicts; with the infection, Vasic suicidal tendencies, Vasic bio-fusion gauntlet, Ming, the remnants of Pure Psy, the vulnerable E’s and the connection to their Arrows and more. Maybe a little to many plot’s and sub-plot’s going on for my liking. I also felt that the empaths (E’s) deserved to shine more and stick it to the Psy that tried to erase them. I wanted a little more on this story then the outbreaks of violence and death. I also felt that Ming’s appearance and talking about him was not necessary. We get some small appearance by Ming and a half as planed on his part is made to capture Vasic. Everyone wants Ming dead, but they talk and end up putting it on hold because of the infection. I was really hoping for a finish with Ming, but nothing happened and then this plan to capture Vasic.

Shield of Winter has its flaws, but there is a constant flow of familiar Psy and Changeling faces that welcome the readers back to the world. If you have not read the Psy-Changeling novels yet, I hope you give them a try.

Audio April 2018: I actually enjoyed the audio more then reading the book. I had more emotions with the audio and felt more for the characters. Now this is my second time with Shield of Winter and so I had a more enjoyable time. Love this series. Highly recommending reading or listening.

"He wondered what Ivy Jane would think of the Arrow about to enter her life, a man who could never again feel anything. Even were it physiologically possible, Vasic had no intention of allowing his Silence to fragment . . ."

LOL. Anyway, did you write this book just for me Nalini Singh? I sure do appreciate it! ( )

This one deals with healing the PsyNet using the empaths, the problem with that is waking and training their empathic powers since they have been trained to never use them. And the remnants of Pure Psy are targeting the empaths as a way to fight the breaking of Silence the Arrows have started guarding them on a one on one basis. This is the setup for Ivy and Vasic to meet and have Ivy fall in love with him since her Silence is broken and has been for years. Of course not every path to HEA is smooth sailing since Vasic has just weeks to live due to having experimental tech grafted to his arm and into his brain. Of course the book has a HEA and it seems the problems with the PsyNet are going to get fixed with this solution. There are still several other loose ends left to the series and just checking the writer's blog she states there are lots more. The downside being I am caught up with the books and now have to wait like everyone else. ( )

This book is in my top 3 favorites in this series. I have a weakness for damaged, broken heros, and men finding redemption. For me Vasic is the perfect male lead. I loved this story. I love this series.

"Listened to audio narrated well by Angela Dawe. I really like this narrator. Awesome! Tender, heart wrenching, wonderful!

Silence is broken, there's an infection causing madness and killing the Psy in the Psynet and only the Empaths can save them, if they figure out how. During this we get Vasic's and Ivy's story, we get to revisit with Judd and Sascha and other previous couples and meet some new faces as well. Tragic moments as well as light hearted moments. Nalini has created another wonderful story in this amazing series. Thank you!"
