Behold, my review of the thirteenth full length novel in the Psy/Changeling series!
Same caveat as for the past several installments: if you are new to the series, don’t start here. Slave to Sensation is the first book, but you can read Visions of Heat, Caressed by Ice or Mine to Possess out of order without appreciable spoilers. After that, I strongly urge you to read the series in order.
Shield of Winter, by Nalini Singh
As far as I can see, this is the first post-Silence story,¹ dealing with the fallout of the events in Heart of Obsidian. Not only is the Psy Council truly dissolved, but a new ruling body has surged unelected–and uncontested–from the rubble.
This ruling coalition sees before it a Herculean task: to maintain calm among the Psy around the world, while dealing with the insidious and fast growing rot that is killing the Net, before the strain is too much.
