The "unparalleled romantic adventure"* of Nalini Singh's New York Times bestselling series continues as a new dawn begins for the Psy-Changeling world...

A staggering transformation has put the Psy, humans, and changelings at a crossroads. The Trinity Accord promises a new era of cooperation between disparate races and groups. It is a beacon of hope held together by many hands: old enemies, new allies, wary loners.

But a century of distrust and suspicion can't be so easily forgotten, and it threatens to shatter Trinity from within at any moment. As rival members vie for dominance, chaos and evil gather in the shadows and a kidnapped woman's cry for help washes up in San Francisco, while the Consortium turns its murderous gaze toward a child who is the embodiment of change, of love, of piercing hope: a child who is both Psy...and changeling.

To find the lost and protect the vulnerable - and to save Trinity - no one can stand alone. This is a time of loyalty across divisions, of bonds woven into the heart and the soul, of heroes known and unknown standing back to back and holding the line. But is an allegiance of honor even possible with traitors lurking in their midst?

*Publishers Weekly on Shards of Hope

I have to admit that I was sadden when starting Allegiance of Honor by Nalini Singh. This sadness had nothing to do with Nalini Singh’s note at the end of Shards of Hope or the one at the beginning of this story. It’s just that its story represents the end of a chapter that has been part of my reading life for a long time.

After being supplied with action filled story after action filled story I felt a smidgen of disappointment at how toned down Allegiance of Honor was. The stories before this installment was full of all types of changes and hype that I seriously thought that this story would carry the same tone.

In hindsight I’m glad for Singh’s decision to tone down this story, the second chapter of her Psy-Changelings series needed to be able to come out strong and if Allegiance of Honor went off with a bang then … I don’t know, it just wouldn’t have been as anticipated, I don’t think.

Regardless of my bratty response, Allegiance of Honor was a-mazing. It, I believe, touched on a slice of life from every couple we’ve met so far, which is something we haven’t had since the earlier books in the Psy-Changelings series. I loved how Singh tied every situation and character/character couple storyline up perfectly, but Allegiance of Honor by Nalini Singh seriously felt like a goodbye to all that these characters have been through since before Slave to Sensation.

I am apprehensive about Silver Silence because I’m simply not ready to leave behind this first chapter crying internally.

About Nalini Singh

On Me

I was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. I spent three years living and working in Japan, where I took the chance to travel around Asia. I’m back in New Zealand now, but I’m always plotting new trips. If you’d like to see some of my travel snapshots, have a look at the Travel Diary page.

I’ve worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher, but not necessarily in that order. Some might call that inconsistency, but I call it grist for the writer’s mill.

On writing

I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. All of my stories held a thread of romance, even when I was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his eyes. Creating unique characters and giving them happy endings is my favorite thing. I even love the voices in my head, so there’s no other job I’d rather be doing. When I got the call in September 2002 that Silhouette Desire wanted to buy my first book, Desert Warrior, it was a dream come true. I hope to continue living the dream until I keel over of old age on my keyboard.
