Review: Visions of Heat ( Psy-Changeling #2 ) by Nalini Singh

Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh
Used to cold silence, Faith NightStar is suddenly being tormented by dark visions of blood and murder. A bad sign for anyone, but worse for Faith, an F-Psy with the highly sought after ability to predict the future. Then the visions show her something even more dangerous - aching need...exquisite pleasure. But so powerful is her sight, so fragile the state of her mind, that the very emotions she yearns to embrace could be the end of her.
Changeling Vaughn D'Angelo can take the form of either man or jaguar, but it is his animal side that is overwhelmingly drawn to Faith. The jaguar's instinct is to claim this woman it finds so utterly fascinating and the man has no argument. But while Vaughn craves sensation and hungers to pleasure Faith in every way, desire is a danger that could snap the last threads of her sanity. And there are Psy who need Faith's sight for their own purposes. They must keep her silenced - and keep her from Vaughn.




I felt guilty for rating this 3 stars because it was actually a really good and solid paranormal cum scifi romance. But I can't help but keep comparing this to its predecessor Slave to Sensation that totally blew me away with its world building and all consuming love between Lucas and Sascha. Visions of Heat weaknesses lies on its similarity with Book 1. We have a similar possessive Changeling hero and an isolated Psy heroine that is not use to feeling emotion. You see the trend there? However, if I read this before discovering Book 1, I will likely rate it 4 stars.

Rating 3/5
