Archangel's Legion and Psy-Changeling #13

Today is an awesome day. Not only did ARCHANGEL'S LEGION receive a starred review from Publishers Weekly that calls the book "intense, vivid, and sexually charged", I have the okay to announce the title and blurb for Psy-Changeling #13.

Ready?

Here you go!

SHIELD OF WINTER by Nalini Singh
Coming June 2014

“The alpha author of paranormal romance” (Booklist) draws us back into her extraordinary Psy-Changeling world, a world torn between violence and peace, passion and ice...

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 stifle 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…

Yaaaay! I'm so excited, can't wait to read the book! <3 And Ivy seems to be the perfect couple for someone like Vasic.

Ahh, this makes me so excited, and congrats on the amazing review!

Aah I thought the long asleep hint was going to be Alice. Why is Vasic awakening the empaths? I thought Kaleb would send them all to Dark River to talk to Sascha!
Oh well Nalini has provided us with 9 months of torture, I blame the dentist. LOL after seeing him she is into torture for revenge. :)

Cant wait!

Yui Mercy said...

i'm so on it! I'm looking forward to it and yeah, just wanna read it!

Janhavi said...

I am super excited!! So glad to see that Ivy is an empath, the whole awakening of the net after Silence is going to be so exciting! I hope she goes and gets tips from Sascha :D

Susan said...

Wow!! Wow!! O.K I just have to add one more... WOW!

I love the title, it is fantastic. Heart of Obsidian became my favorite book in the series! This new direction is fantastic and that is saying something. I loved (and still do) the changelings but this direction is brilliant. I am glad that Nalini Singh has the courage and creativity to take off in a different direction AND make it work even better is a tremendous testament to her gift as a writer! Please keep them coming and is there any chance that Archangel's Legion release date. Didn't you mean to realease it on October 9th instead of the 29th??? LOL! I tried!

azteclady said...

Empaths...and Alice is awake now--who wants to bet she'll play at least some role in this one too?

*happy dancing*

Vasic!!!

Anna said...

You had me when you announced Vasic as the next hero. :o) The blurb is fab, too!

Vasic! Vasic! Vasic! (See, I'm still so happy Vasic is next.)

The pairing sounds too. He's going to need a very strong empath to crack that shield of ice. And, Yay, to another empath!

AWESOME!!!

Love the new character, Ivy, already, might just be what Vasic needs to pull him out. Can't wait!!!

Janhavi said...

I loved the sentence "For if the Psy race is to survive, the empaths must wake…" which goes all the way back to Sascha's musings in a very early book, probably Slave to Sensation (or maybe VoH). It is so cool how Nalini has this huge, overarching plot

k@z said...

I can't wait!! I wait on the edge of my seat for any and all books by Nalini. Thank you for sharing your wonderful talent and the amazing world that you have built that I (and I'm sure your other fans) can get lost in...Again and again and again.

This is so great! Can't wait to read Vasic's story. In fact I can't wait to read any of Nalini's books! I too think he needs an empathy, someone who'll know how to touch and heal the deepest wounds. June 2014 why are you so far away?

Kgirl M said...

I cannot describe how excited I am!! Kaleb's book will always be my favorite (which I have read about 10 times already) but I cannot wait to read Vasic's!!!! Perhaps Aden will be next?? :)

June 2014 is too far away. I agree that another empath is awesome! And this could be just my opinion, but Vasic and Aden need to discover what Walker and Judd have. As Walker said, the only way to understand is to experience it.

Vasic and Ivy (I'm pretty sure she's a wolf)

Then after this book do we get Aden's? Or one of Mercy's brothers?

Anonymous said...

can't wait for vasic & ivy's story.

hopefully aden paired with alice will be next.

I cannot wait for this book as I have being a die hard fan of Vasic and was getting desperate reading each story that mentioned him...... June 2014 is way too far away but anything to do with Nalini Singh and Vasic is worth waiting for!

I'm so very excited for this book! This series is fantastic, with Heart of Obsidian being my absolute favorite. I hope you keep going with it for years and years to come, Nalini, because you're one of the few authors out there who has such consistently great work. Kudos to you!

Rosenkreuz said...

Our gorgeous Psy men are starting to come out of isolation starting with Judd and Walker...I was so blown away by Kaleb's story. Kaleb makes me think of the Archangel of New York. They do have some parallels. They're both extremely gorgeous, rich, powerful and when they fall inlove, they fall hard...(sigh) to be loved by such men. Anyways, can't wait for Vasic's come out!! June 2014 is like a millenia away if you ask me but I know it's all gonna be worth the wait. Thanks Nalini for all these hotties and for taking us on your journey through their world!!!!

Catherine Teo Yu Wei said...

Well... if Vasic gets Ivy... does it mean perhaps Aden will get Alice?

I mean... all the other major characters have their other half... will it be the same for Aden?

Nalini, your books just keep getting better each and every time. Can't wait...can't wait...can't wait! Happy Thanksgiving Day ~!

Rita said...

Love this series. Just before a new book comes out I go back and reread each book. Always find something I have forgotten or missed. It takes a great writer to create a new world and you are one of the best. Thanks for giving me so many hours of pleasure, Nalini.
