Book Review: Allegiance of Honor by Nalini Singh

Allegiance of Honor
Author: Nalini Singh
Series: Psy-Changelings, Book 15
Publication: Berkley (June 14, 2016)

Description: 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?

My Thoughts: This book was a great opportunity to catch up with all the beloved characters in the earlier Psy-Changeling books. A few of the entwined events were the impending arrival of Mercy and Riley's pupcubs, a Psy Net that seems to be failing again, a lost shapechanger from the BlackSea clan, a kidnap plot with Lucas and Sasha's daughter Naya as the intended victim, and plotting from both Ming LeBon and the Consortium.

The story also shows how connections are growing between all the various groups of humans, Psy and Changelings. It especially shows how each group treasures their children and strives to make a good life for them.

I enjoyed this story because of the strong relationships between the various couples and the growing trust between the various groups. I can't wait to see where this series goes next.

Favorite Quote:
The signs had been there for a long time, if he thought about it. Lapses in concentration, lost or missing pieces of data, a distinct lack of growth since Kaleb was a child. Yes, the neosentience grew at a glacial pace in comparison to the Psy mind, bit it had shown no development in over two decades.

In point of fact, it appeared to have gone backward, to an even more childlike state.
I bought this one. You can buy your copy here.
