There are writers out there who create worlds that just manage to capture your imagination to the point that you are really impatiently waiting for the next book to come out? That’s how I feel about Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling Series. I am counting the days til the newest book, Wild Invitation, comes out.
Quick background without giving spoliers: there are three races on her earth. Humans, changeling (animal shape shifters – born not passed on by infection) and Psy (telepaths, telekinetics foreseers, etc) have pretty much lived segregated with the Psy ruling the earth (or so they think). However, times are changing.
Over a century ago, the Psy chose to silence their emotions. They believe it makes them superior since they are rational and logical rather than emotional like the other races. The silence protocol was initiated to help their people but it came at a cost that has taken its toll. As they Psy faces the failure of Silence, all three races are affected. The only way to save the world is to once again feel…
The reason I keep reading: I want to know who the Ghost is! This character is introduced in Caressed by Ice but not named. The ghost is a Psy who appears to be a rebel. Since he appears and disappears without anyone knowing, it would seem he is a telekinetic (TK Psy) pretty high up in the ranking since only they have the ability to teleport. The author says that the character has appeared multiple times but his story has not yet been published. Speculation among the fans point to a Psy councilor or an Arrow designation, TK-V. Perhaps this is because she would then end the series? I don’t want the series to end but I really want to know.
