Blaze of Memory: Psy-Changeling #7 by Nalini Singh

Blaze of Memory: Psy-Changeling #7 by Nalini Singh

The seventh book in Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling series is a strange one for me –

Blaze of Memory

Let me move onto the review for Blaze, so that I explain what I mean….

Blaze of Memory drives us through the construction of the Forgotten. We initially met them in Mine to Possess and they seem to play an important role so far.

Mostly, we deal with their leader, Dev Santos, who tries to keep his people away from the clutches of the Psy.

He has to deal with a broken woman, who is willing to die at any given moment should she prove to be a threat. We met Katya Haas a few books back and we thought she was dead. Surprise!

On one hand, it is very nice to explore the possibilities of what would happen, should the Psy ever start mingling their genes with humans.

On the other: there is a talk about the Forgotten accepting Silence. Unfortunately, this talk finds an unlikely ally.

This is one of the things that allienated me from the book. It struck me as odd, that people who obviously wanted to feel, would consider Silence for them and those around them.

I like how the plot moved another step forward, but towards the end, at that point with the “tandem gift”, it seemed a bit god-sent.

I still haven’t understood how that thing happened and how those two knew how to even instinctively reach out and work their magic.

Someone please tell me you’ve read it! I want to talk about that part with you!

All in all, it is a very good book. I tried the audio, but I just couldn’t get into it. Weird, if you think I’ve already listened to previous titles.

It’s even weirder, considering this was one of my favourites, but now it’s position is being threatened by the others in the series.

“Dev called Katya on the comm panel as soon as he was able. “How are you?”

“Fine.” Her lips curved. “Connor brought me a smoothie -he said you threatened to cut his legs off at the knees if he forgot.”

“Damn straight.”

  1. Yes! That ending was strange. How did they know to do that? How did they know they had any magic? This wasn’t at the top of my list of favorites for this series, but I definitely enjoyed getting to know Katya and Dev.

    This is one of my favorites, I love Katya & Dev.

    I think some of The Forgotten considered embracing Silence for the same reason the Psy did so a century before: a desperate hope to save their child(ren). Yes, it was ultimately a misguided solution, but they tried nearly everything else and the little boy believed himself to be evil. I totally get that his father was willing to do ANYTHING to save his son. The scene where Judd goes to see William is one of my favorites.

    The first time I read this book I did thing the solution was a bit out of left field, but rereading it the subtle clues the author planted were more obvious.

    I think we haven’t seen the last of the tandem gift scenarios. My theory is it will come into play as a way to save the net. I have no real evidence to back up this theory, it’s just something I’ve thought would happen since the first time I read Shield of Winter.
