The Psy-Changeling world has undergone a staggering transformation and now stands 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 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, protect the vulnerable—and 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?
Not the author's usual fare with romance centered around one couple but more of an ensemble piece allowing character development and showing the changes that are occurring, particularly amongst the Psy. There's hope and beginnings here with answers about the earlier life of Father Perez and how he became so involved with those seeking change amongst the Psy. Even the powerful Kaleb is outed but to say more of that would undoubtedly ruin the surprise.
Not just Psy connections though as the story is possibly dominated by the Changelings from the delightful pup cubs to the new younger generation. Yet the author manages to cunningly weave a little action and suspense in as maternal love is tested and those who wish to do harm start showing their true colours.
Ms Singh can write such heartbreaking scenes and with just a few words; I'm always blown away by the emotion she pulls from me. Yet in spite of that, at times I felt torn as just about everyone from previous books appeared with perhaps for me too many quick scenes of coupling if you get my drift. I want them happy, it's lovely to see favourites moving forward as part of this amazing community they've formed but I wanted a little more action. Yes, there's a new powerful Psy introduced and the Trinity Accord is clearly under attack not to mention just what is going on in the Net? I'm just a tad confused about the interest in Lucas and Sasha's daughter because hey she's cute, she's a mixture of two races but she's not the first! The Forgotten seem to be, well forgotten and wasn't Lucas' great whatever grandmother a Psy? Although, if its leverage I completely get it.
So this ends up being a feel good read that lets readers catch up. As usual I felt like I was part of the story and really knew these characters. Yes, it sprawls about and is slow at times and possibly even too long but it's still far and away above so many other paranormal romance stories available but definitely not a standalone. This series is epic, Ms Singh is so talented I'm in awe and I never want this journey to end.
