Shards of Hope

Book 14, A Psy/Changeling Novel

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The “smoldering heat, epic romance, and awesome action”* of Nalini Singh’s New York Times bestselling series continues as two Arrows find themselves caught in a chilling conspiracy that spans all three races…

Awakening wounded in a darkened cell, their psychic abilities blocked, Aden and Zaira know they must escape. But when the lethal soldiers break free from their mysterious prison, they find themselves in a harsh, inhospitable landscape far from civilization. Their only hope for survival is to make it to the hidden home of a predatory changeling pack that doesn’t welcome outsiders.

And they must survive. A shadowy enemy has put a target on the back of the Arrow squad, an enemy that cannot be permitted to succeed in its deadly campaign. Aden will cross any line to keep his people safe for this new future, where even an assassin might have hope of a life beyond blood and death and pain. Zaira has no such hope. She knows she’s too damaged to return from the abyss. Her driving goal is to protect Aden, protect the only person who has ever come back for her no matter what. This time, even Aden’s passionate determination may not be enough—because the emotionless chill of Silence existed for a reason. For the violent, and the insane, and the irreparably broken…like Zaira.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 13, 2015 – Complex psychological changes are balanced by deep love in the outstanding 15th Psy-Changeling paranormal romance (after Shield of Winter), set at the end of the 21st century. This episode focuses on the Arrows, an organization of assassins with psychic abilities. The Arrows have been shaken by the recent fall of the Silence Protocol, which mandated training Psy children to be emotionless to help them control their powers; it worked, but also created sociopaths. Aden Kai, thought to be one of the weaker Arrows, has taken command and sworn to protect his Arrows and help them recover. Needing support, he reaches out to one of his commanders, Zaira Neve, arguably the Arrow who needs the discipline of Silence the most. Together, Aden and Zaira have to overcome assassination attempts and the growing pains of change—even as they confront a threat greater than their pasts and start to realize the romantic possibilities of their longtime friendship. The plot advances the overarching story while still maintaining a strong sense of intimacy and connection with the characters. The tension of an epic psychological thriller provides the framework for an unparalleled romantic adventure.

Customer Reviews

Singh's obsession with serial killing is getting old

In general, this is a strong addition to the Psy-Changling series - primarily because it moves the overall story arc of the series significantly forward. We learn some more about the water-based changelings and get to see the Arrows make satisfying progress toward life beyond Silence. Aden is a worthy leader for the squad, and the dynamic between him and Zaira is an interesting, subtle departure from what we have typically seen in this series. However, the book is marred by an unnecessary side plot about yet another serial killer. I, for one, am getting tired of having to wade through the internal monologues of sickos in the Psy-Changling books, especially since they're all just slight variations on the same character.

Shards of Hope

Nalini Singh is one of the most creative and inspiring authors of the 21st century. Shards of Hope was wonderfully written, inspiring and entertaining. I always look forward to reading new books from Nalini Singh. I highly recommend reading not only this book but the full Psy-Changeling series.

Wonderful addition to the Psy-Changeling Series!

The story line is compelling and adds to the arc of the series. It's great to finally get Aden's story! The end just begs for the next book!
