“I should have known that Singh could get me to fall in love…”
~ Under the Covers

Bowen Knight has come back from the dead but there’s a ticking time bomb in his head. Even with the most brilliant scientists in the world working on the problem, he only has a small chance of living beyond a few weeks. With so little time left who should be helping the Human Alliance. Instead he is at the bottom of the ocean consumed with thought of the enigmatic Kaia Luna. Kaia has had enough pain in her life, mostly at the hands of humans. So she is baffled by her attraction to the human male who despite his potent vitality, is on the brink of death. But, when Kaia is taken, Bo will do anything to get her back…even if it means losing his mind.

So far in the Psy-Changeling and Psy-Changeling Trinity series we’ve had all land mammals. In Ocean Light we finally get an in depth glimpse at the water changelings in the BlackSea Clan. Unlike most other packs that consist of mainly one type of animal – leopard, wolf, bear – the BlackSea Clan includes any water based creature, from sharks to minnows, whales and turtles. Anything that is at home in the water belongs to BlackSea. Because of this they are a vast and powerful organisation, who have only just chosen to create alliances with outside groups. One of those groups being the Human Alliance.

Bowen is the Security Chief for the Human Alliance and has done a few questionable things in previous books. But, in Ocean Light we finally get to know his full background and get a deep dive in to his personality. He surprised me. As much as I look forward to every Singh book, Bo has never been a favourite of mine. I should have known that Singh could get me to fall in love with him! Kaia is a water changeling, but I won’t tell you what she changes into as  it is a cute game between Kaia and Bo for him to guess, you find out towards the end of the book. Like all Singh heroines, she was likeable and had her own strengths and an interesting past. The romance between them grew quickly, but still managed to somehow convey a depth of feeling.

It wasn’t just the romance that was going on though. Water changelings have been disappearing and found dead and we finally get a little bit more information on what’s been happening. I can’t wait to read the next book so I can keep getting more bits of the puzzle. This book also introduced us to more new characters from both the Human Alliance and from BlackSea. It will be interesting to know more about them and then hopefully see them have their own book.

Although this didn’t quite have the charm of Silver Silence, (the bears completely won me over!) this was an enjoyable read and a worthy instalment in the Psy-Changeling series.

About Nalini Singh

I've been writing as long as I can remember and all of my stories always held a thread of romance (even when I was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his eyes). I love creating unique characters, love giving them happy endings and I even love the voices in my head. There's no other job I would rather be doing. In September 2002, when I got the call that Silhouette Desire wanted to buy my first book, Desert Warrior, it was a dream come true. I hope to continue living the dream until I keel over of old age on my keyboard.

I was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. I also spent three years living and working in Japan, during which time I took the chance to travel around Asia. I’m back in New Zealand now, but I’m always plotting new trips. If you’d like to see some of my travel snapshots, have a look at the Travel Diary page (updated every month).

So far, I've worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher and not necessarily in that order. Some might call that inconsistency but I call it grist for the writer's mill.

I definitely want more water changelings after this one. 🙂

I loved the Black Sea Clan. Not quite as much as the bears, but they were definitely interesting. I loved seeing what each changeling was. This was a fun read.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts Suzanne
