Security specialist Bowen Knight has come back from the dead. But there's a ticking time bomb in his head: a chip implanted to block telepathic interference that could fail at any moment--taking his brain along with it. With no time to waste, he should be back on land helping the Human Alliance. Instead, he's at the bottom of the ocean, consumed with an enigmatic changeling...
Kaia Luna may have traded in science for being a chef, but she won't hide the facts of Bo's condition from him or herself. She's suffered too much loss in her life to fall prey to the dangerous charm of a human who is a dead man walking. And she carries a devastating secret Bo could never imagine...
But when Kaia is taken by those who mean her deadly harm, all bets are off. Bo will do anything to get her back--even if it means striking a devil's bargain and giving up his mind to the enemy...
Ocean Light by Nalini Singh
Bowen is a human man who has forgone an experimental operation to keep the psys out of his head. This operation implanted a chip, a chip that will eventually kill him and unless someone figures out a way to save him, he is a dead man walking.
Kaia is an aquatic shifter, living in the science base at the bottom of the ocean. She has been hiding herself underwater after the tragic circumstance that surround her life. The last thing she needs to be is drawn to Bo, a man with an expiration date…but sometimes fate is a fickle thing.
I love the Psy-Changeling world. And here comes the but... even though there is a few character crossovers, for the most part, this story takes place underwater in the aquatic changling realm with unfamiliar characters and little to no action till the last few chapters. I did really liked it and found it highly enjoyable but felt like I was starting a totally new series and the character connection was newly developing. By the end, I was hooked on Singh's new world and look forward to finding this world as familar as found in the original Psy-Changeling series.
I received this ARC copy of Ocean Light from Berkley Publishing Group. This is my honest and voluntary review. Ocean Light is set for publication June 12, 2018.
