In Bonds of Justice, looking into the minds of killers has pushed Justice-Psy Sophia Russo close to the edge of insanity. She’s already started dispensing her own brand of justice to the worst of the worst, but Bonner the Butcher can’t be killed until she can retrieve the location of his victim’s bodies from his twisted mind. In the middle of that tough assignment she is reassigned to help human cop Max Shannon figure out who is trying to kill Psy Councilor Nikita Duncan.
There is a lot going on in this eighth installment of Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changling series. Many of the characters from earlier books are brought back into the story that advances the political intrigue that serves as a back drop for each of the breathtaking romances found in these books.
I discovered this series earlier this year and it has fast become one of my favorites. I can’t wait for the next installment. If you like the sound of this world but want to try it out in a smaller dose, there is a novella from this world in the anthology, Burning Up, out now.
What I loved about the heroine:
Sophia Russo is a badly damaged character, but she is determined to fight to live and love.
What I loved about the hero:
Max Shannon appeared in an earlier novel and here we learn a great deal more about this strong, tough cop. Max has a natural mind shield against the Psy and that gives him an edge in dealing with them. Max is both strong and tender. His love notes to Sophia, scattered throughout the book; are sexy, fun, and romantic.
Other cool stuff:
Sasha, the heroine of the first book in the series, makes an appearance and we learn she is pregnant. Cool! We see another side of Nakita and Kaleb in this book. Kaleb’s Tk (telekinetic) abilities are amazing and there is a hint that he may be taking over leadership of the Arrow squad. In Caressed by Ice we met an ex-Arrow who made a darned fine hero and there is another Arrow that has made appearances off and on through the series. This gave me hope that we will eventually get his story.
Genre: Paranormal Romance according to the spine, but I’d call this futuristic in an alternate reality.
