Friday Memes: Alpha Night by Nalini Singh

Happy Friday everybody!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City ReaderThe Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

The year is 2083, and after one hundred years of an endless emotionless night, the Psy have emerged into a painful dawn. Love and elation, hate and envy, joy and anguish, sorrow and amusement, all this and more, the psychic race can now feel without fear of a brainwipe that leaves them hollow automatons.

Foreseers, telekinetics, empaths, telepaths, psychometrics, all are free to exist.

But one hundred years leaves a scar.
Friday 56:
His attention sharpened. "Are you here to warm me off?" If so, she would fail. Ethan had chosen and he wasn't about to budge. Should Selenka decide against him, she could tear out his throat. That was the only way he's leave her before his time ran out. 
This week I am spotlighting a new arrival on my TBR mountain. Alpha Night by Nalini Singh is the fourth book in the Psy-Changeling Trinity series. I have been reading this series and all the other books in the Psy-Changeling world since the first one in 2006. Here is the description of this one:
New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh returns to her breathtaking Psy-Changeling Trinity series with a mating that shouldn’t exist…

Alpha wolf Selenka Durev’s devotion to her pack is equaled only by her anger at anyone who would harm those under her care. That currently includes the empaths who’ve flowed into her city for a symposium that is a security nightmare, a powder keg just waiting for a match.

Ethan Night is an Arrow who isn’t an Arrow. Numb and disengaged from the world, he’s loyal only to himself. Assigned as part of the security force at a world-first symposium, he carries a dark agenda tied to the power-hungry and murderous Consortium. Then violence erupts and Ethan finds himself crashing into the heart and soul of an alpha wolf.

Mating at first sight is a myth, a fairytale. Yet Selenka’s wolf is resolute: Ethan Night, broken Arrow and a man capable of obsessive devotion, is the mate it has chosen. Even if the mating bond is full of static and not quite as it should be. Because Selenka’s new mate has a terrible secret, his mind surging with a power that is a creature of madness and death…


  1. HI Kathy! This sounds awesome! I love the whole 'mates' theme and how all different races are coexisting.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. Happy weekend!

  2. Sounds intense and intriguing. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  3. What a great opener. It really makes me want to check out this series. Thanks for sharing! Hope you have an awesome weekend! :)

  4. The Psy seem like an interesting race. Happy weekend!

  5. I'm too literal for sci-fi. I got so hung up on the idea that we are now 37 years into an "emotionless night" that I could barely read the rest of your post. :)

  6. Sounds like a crazy, inventive book. Thanks for dropping by my blog.

  7. That beginning is poignant. I've only read a couple of short stories in her Psy world but I enjoyed them.

    Happy reading and have a good weekend!

    My Friday Post.

  8. I've been eyeing this series and I'll have to pick it up soon. :)
