    First off, let me say that I m completely biased when it comes to Hawke, so don t expect this to be a sensible and impartial review Hawke alone deserves 5 stars, and I ll just be honest and say that I d love this book even if the plot was utter crap which it isn t, of course.I became obsessed feel in love with Hawke the moment I met him in Slave to Sensation, the first book in the series Hawke was muscular and he was lethal A predator to the core His eyes were the same icy blue whet First off, let me say that I m completely biased when it comes to Hawke, so don t expect this to be a sensible and impartial review Hawke alone deserves 5 stars, and I ll just be honest and say that I d love this book even if the plot was utter crap which it isn t, of course.I became obsessed feel in love with Hawke the moment I met him in Slave to Sensation, the first book in the series Hawke was muscular and he was lethal A predator to the core His eyes were the same icy blue whether he was in wolf or human form, his hair a thick silver gold that had nothing to do with age It echoed his pelt Of all the changelings Lucas knew, it was Hawke who resembled his beast the most in humanity. Lucas, the hero in that book, was yummylicious on his own way, no question about it, but it was Hawke who grabbed my heart then I d been anxiously waiting to read his book ever since, but I knew it would take some time before he was ready Sascha took a breath and let her eyes flutter shut The wolf s emotions struck cold terror into her heart She d never felt such pure, unadulterated rage Dark and violent, it was a scar across his soul Hawke could function, could rule, but this man would never love, not so long as he was blinded by the red veil of blood and death.Cold, dangerous, ruthless, tortured Is it any wonder I fell hard and fast for himsighs Sienna was introduced in that book too and I immediately sensed she would become a major player in the series, even though she only had a few lines I didn t see any sexual spark between Hawke and her thank the gods, because she was only seventeen back then but it was clear that he let her get away withthan he normally would The tension between them becameevident in Visions of Heat, the following book in the series, and I began to wonder what Ms Singh had in store for them Hawke s description of Sienna was almost like a declaration of loveSienna s so damn much trouble, I m starting to think the brat s a she wolf in bloody disguise Aww, comparing her to a she wolf High compliment coming from a wolf, don t you think The tension escalated in Caressed By Ice and I had nodoubts about their pairing Sienna could make Hawke lose his cool faster than any other man or woman in the den Hawke s face darkened Keep that damn brat away from me she strouble than a pack of rabid cats Yup, it was true love, LOL.Naturally, Ms Singh had to throw another major obstacle in their wayCan I ask you something Hawke rubbed a hand over Brenna s back Go on Why haven t you taken a mate Hawke didn t respond for a long time She was two years old when we met I was seven I knew she was my best friend straight away As I got older, I also knew she would grow up to become my mate Brenna didn t want him to continue, a horrible feeling in the pit of her stomach She fit me in a way no one else ever will And she died when she was five and I was ten A single tear rolled down her face She wished anything that she could turn back time and save that life, because mating was a one shot deal Hawke had found the woman who was meant for him That didn t happen twice.No, no, no What kind of future Hawke and Sienna could have if she was never to be his mate, the one and only woman in the world meant for him Oh, the pain Ms Singh, who must be a sadist I say that with love, LOL , did nothing to soothe my poor nerves in Mine to Possess, as neither Hawke nor Sienna made a single appearance in that book Big bummer Fortunately, Hawke and I didn t have to stay apart for long, as he was back on the scene in Hostage to Pleasure Sienna was still MIA, but one particular dialogue between Lucas and Sacha made me perk up and smile like a ninnyThat damn wolf He sent you a present last week Sascha smiled at the thought of Hawke s flirting The SnowDancer alpha did it only to jerk Lucas chain I never saw any present What was it How the hell should I know I stomped on it and threw it into the deepest crevice I could find Lucas smirked Then I called him to ask how Sienna was doing She burst out laughing Wicked, wicked man Everyone knew Sienna Lauren was the short fuse on Hawke s temper The Psy teenager appeared to have made it her mission in life to get on his last nerve What did he say That she s planning a party for her eighteenth birthday The laughter in Lucas s tone told her exactly what Hawke had sounded like as he shared that tidbit.Woohoo Sienna was turning eighteen and Hawke wouldn t be able to hold her at arm s length any But what about the darn mating bond they could never share Oh, the agony As expected, a eighteen year old Sienna proved to be dangerous but not only to Hawke A Cardinal Psy with undisclosed powerful abilities, her conditioning and shields were crumbling, putting everything and everyone around her in dangerI m the horror in the closet, Sascha, the nightmare even Psy hide from Your uncle has extremely powerful abilities he s learned to control them So will you I m not like Uncle Judd I m worse You know it and so do I One slip and boom, I take out the entire den Sascha held the girl closer, disbelieving Cardinal Psy with furious combat abilities were beyond deadly Sienna could possibly take out the SnowDancer den if she lost her grip on her powers You ve been trying to manage it I shut up everything inside Everything I thought if I could hold it, just hold it, it would be fine But it s not Why she asked Why are you losing control this badly The answer, when it came, broke Sascha s heart Hawke It was an almost soundless whisper.So, another obstacle was thrown on Hawke and Sienna s way As a Psy with a strong and virulent ability, she couldn t exist without Silence But she couldn t hold on her conditioning and be around Hawke at the same time either Darn Wasn t the impossibility of a mating bond between Hawke and Sienna bad enoughpouts To my dismay, Branded by Fire ended with Hawke and Sienna apart It looked like their story was over, especially after she started hanging around with a gorgeous, loyal, charming DarkRiver cat HmmmOnce again, the sadist in Ms Singh kept me on the verge of a breakdown when neither Hawke nor Sienna made an appearance in the following book, Blaze of Memory They weren t even mentioned That was cruel I needed to know if they were really over, if Sienna had found a new lover, and if Hawke was free to be mine Mine Bonds of Justice seemed to cement their separation They were still MIA, but at least they were mentionedKit would be the better choice for Sienna, Lucas said in a quiet tone that did nothing to hide the depth of his concern for everyone involved Hawke isn t going to be easy on any woman he takes as his own And the fact is, he lost the girl who would ve been his mate as a child I don t know if his wolf will allow him to accept another female on that level As much as I wanted Hawke to be mine, I can t say I was happy with that Despite all the obstacles, I still wanted Hawke and Sienna together, but I began to wonder if Ms Singh was laying the ground to introduce a plot twist like, Hawke s mate s unexpected resurrection Silly, silly me Play of Passion put things back in place again Hawke and Sienna were definitely meant to be together, yay The stubborn man was still trying to fight the unwavering pull, but his wolf was tired of waiting and ready to claim what he saw as hishe surrendered to the wild hunger within and headed out for a run in wolf form.He d barely cleared the doorway when he caught a scent that instantly ruffled his fur the wrong way She smelled like autumn fire and some rich, exotic spice Far too potent a scent for someone so young, someone from whom he should keep his distance Instead, he drew the spice laced air into his lungs and ran at a ground devouring lope that brought him to a small rise from where he could watch his prey He should step back, should move in the opposite direction.He should.He turned and angled down through the trees until he appeared on the path beside her instead Jerking back in surprise, Sienna stared at him with wide eyes When he did nothing but wait for her, she continued on the trail, shooting him small looks filled with suspicion until it became clear he was intent only on keeping her company.Then her stride relaxed, and they walked.In silence.Sweet Call me crazy, but I can t resist a stalking hero, LOL And as soon as I finished reading Play of Passion, I started counting the days until the release of my beloved Hawke s book Oh, the anticipation Four and a half years, that s how long I had to wait for it What if it didn t fulfill my sky high expectations I d die I m such a drama queen, LOL Then, to my surprise and utter joy, I was able to get an early copy of this coveted gem, Kiss of Snow Finally I d finally get the answers to the questions that had been plaguing me Would Hawke be able to claim Sienna as his mate or would they have to settle for a regular relationship What would happen when she was no longer able to keep her destructive Psy abilities under control How would the Psy Council s dissolution affect the world Would there be anything left after the Pure Psy unleashed their massive attack on the changeling packs Did the book answer all those questions Well, you know I can t won t tell you But I ll let you know this the series is definitely not over and I can t wait to see what will happen next.As with almost all the books in this series, there isn t much I can say here about the continuing story arc that started in Slave to Sensation without giving away spoilers, so I ll keep this short Unlike some of the previous books, Kiss of Snow showed that the Psy weren t as weak as the Changelings and I had thought By weak , I mean that as much as the Psy had been presented as ruthless and deadly before, I d never fully felt a real threat to the Changelings That changed in this book, as it was shown that the Psy could take down the Changelings Plotwise, Kiss of Snow marks the end of the original story arc of the series I m sure all the major players we ve met over the years will still be around in the next books, but the series main focus is likely to change after the latest developments in the Psy Changeling war.Considering Hawke and Sienna s history, Kiss of Snow is filled with sexual tension They had been dancing around each other for a long time, and it was time to set things right Hawke, the man and the wolf, had reached the breaking point He still tried to convince himself to let Sienna go, thinking she deserved better than a man who couldn t give her the mating bond, but the thought of seeing her with another man was enough to drive him insane He couldn t let her go, not after he claimed skin privilegesYou want to dance Husky words that stroked along her skin like the softest fur.She nodded Then we dance Reaching out, he switched on the vehicle s sound system and input a selection before stepping out.Her door opened as a slow, smoky ballad began to play Come Not sure this wasn t all a dream, she placed her hand in his and, fighting the wild rush of sensation engentlered by his touch and his scent, allowed him to tug her around to the front of the vehicle Arms around my neck The command released her voice I thought you weren t being alpha here I m not Oh.As she raised her arms, she realized her boots gave her enough height to cup his nape with one hand, while she placed the other on the muscled warmth of his shoulder When he shifted position so that his jaw rubbed against her temple, her heart began to thud fast as a jackhammer.Teeth nipped at her ear.She jumped Pay attention A rumbling growl Sienna A deep murmur against her skin, his lips brushing her temple This can t be You know that No, she said Not tonight She wanted to dance with him, be a woman in the arms of a man who made every part of her awaken in a hunger she d never expected to feel and who, for this magical moment, was hers.His jaw, heavy with stubble, rubbed against her temple again as he shifted his hold to press her closer Then, as the music played, as the night grew softer and quieter, they danced. Oh Hawke, you romantic beast Call me baby , chase me, bite me, mark me You ve ruined me for other men As for Sienna, her maturity came as no surprise to me She was only nineteen, but she was no teenager Sure, she had a couple of hissy fits that could be labeled teen ish, but she was mostly old beyond her years, due to the life she d had before her defection from the PsyNet So the age issue Hawke was thirty four was never a problem to me She was strong, level headed, unafraid to go after what she wanted and willing to cut loose if that was proven to be out of her reach She was done hanging around Hawke and waiting for him, so he either claimed her or stopped acting possessive about her Good for her If only she hadtime before her deadly Psy ability took over view spoiler Sienna unleashed hide spoiler Now, I have to say that I could have done with a little less sexual tension Hawke and Sienna were on the verge of going for the ultimate skin privilege only to be interrupted so many freaking times, I was pulling my hair in frustation when they finally managed to go through with it Halfway through the book, I began to worry about his health Thankfully, dying from blue balls is only a myth, or he d have perished on the spot Besides the two main storylines Hawke and Sienna s relationship and the Psy Changeling war , there was also a surprising to me and sweet secondary romance view spoiler between Walker, Sienna s uncle, and Lara, the SnowDancer healer, hide spoiler that made reading this book evenenjoyable I liked both of them and was very happy to see them together.And for those die hard fans like me, who have been following this series since the beginning, you ll be glad to know that all the heroes and heroines from the previous books had their share in Kiss of Snow A few of them were only mentioned, but most shared some scenes with Hawke and or Sienna Lucas and Sascha s participation was special and I was thrilled for them And for those who love Judd, well, get ready for a smoking hot scene with the Man of Ice Yowza Last but not least, let me tell you how much I loved the final scene in the bookWhat s your full name Hawke s wolf flashed in his eyes, the ice blue glittering with the same amusement that had his cheeks creasing What brought that on I refuse to be in the dark Tell Leaning down, he nipped at her jaw, a quick, affectionate bite that had her jerking No distracting me, I want to know Another small bite before he whispered it in her ear.She blinked No He growled, but it was playful Don t you like it It s beautiful, you know it is Perfect for him What about me she asked Do I take your last name Do you want to A tilt of his head, the wolf watchful but not demanding.She considered the question with care, thinking of who she d been, who she was now Yes, she said at last, but I d like to keep mine, too It s a part of me Lips against her own, a wolf s kiss That works fine for me Sienna Lauren view spoiler Snow hide spoiler I think I ll have to change my last name too Dina view spoiler Snow hide spoiler Yeah, I like the sound of that Considering how much I had anticipated this book and how high my expectations were, I m glad to say I wasthan satisfied with it Ha, what an understatement I loved it Loved It It wasn t perfect and I thought Ms Singh could have handled a couple of things differently, but that didn t dampen the enjoyment of this read.Final verdict It s a keeper Note As I was writing this, I was aware that it was nothing like a review should be It was just my gushing, incoherent and deranged collection of thoughts on Hawke, my favorite shifter ever What can I say I had to pay hommage to him and I hope I did him justice.

spoilers for the book.A little background I picked up Nalini Singh s Psy Changling series on a whim back in 2006 with Slave to Sensation and when I was finished with that book, I was immediately drawn to Hawke s story and my fervent hope that eventually A it d get written soon and B his HEA was Sienna Lauren who was 16 at the time Each subsequent book after that I read hoping for bits and pieces of Hawke s story and wanting to know what Sienna was up to Suffice it to say, this was my most anticipated read of like, forever.Cut to 2011.Ms Singh was kind enough to send me an ARC which I found out I would be getting during my birthday week which was the best birthday present of ever and I literally devoured this book when it came in the mail.Kiss of Snow is amazing It s amazing, intriguing, and delicious There s a lot that goes on in this book, and so many storylines are finished and begun that I can see why Ms Singh said that it was going to be longer than her others in this series It will be on my re read shelf forever I ve re read it about 20 times already and it never gets old NEVER.Hawke is the alpha of the SnowDancer wolf pack a position he s held since he was 15 when all of the adults in the pack were betrayed by a trusted member of the pack and subsequently destroyed from within It s something that has haunted the pack ever since, and is one of the reasons why Hawke is so protective of not only the pack hierarchy but in maintaining pack honor and loyalty He loves his pack with a ferocity that is almost overwhelming in nature he d do anything for them and they d do anything for him.He also lost the girl that would have been his mate when he was 10 It s unusual for anyone to discover their mate that early he was 7 at the time and he lost her 3 years later It devastated him as a child and he s convinced himself that he ll never mate Ever.Imagine his surprise when he realizes that he s inexorably drawn to one Sienna Lauren, a Psy defector who entered his pack with her family 3 years ago He s tried to keep her at a distance and so far it s worked Until now.Sienna is an X Psy the only one that she knows of in existence Not only that she s a cardinal X Psy something that, as far as she knows, has never existed before She considers SnowDancer her extended family, and is as ferociously protective of them as she is of her immediate family Her attraction to Hawke threatens to overwhelm the shields that she desperately needs to contain her abilities That doesn t mean, however, that she doesn t push his buttons, push him, whenever the mood strikes her, trying to get him to see her as she so fervently wants him to.What she hadn t realized until now he does see her He always has That s been the problem.The dance between the two takes up two thirds of the book The attraction between them is palpable and obvious but the conflict comes from them actually having to learn to understand each other, and learn each other so that they can become the true alpha pair that SnowDancer needs.Nalini always writes awesome alpha male characters, and Hawke is the alpha of all alphas in this book He s a force to be reckoned with He s confident in his position as alpha, in his physical abilities and in his physical attractiveness He loves his pack, and would do anything for them while at the same time, he s demanding of those around him, and uses his dominance to ruthless effect It is this very dominance that is the main reason why, as mentioned early on in the book, any female would have to have brass balls to take him on.Sienna Lauren has them andShe s had to live with and learn to control her formidable abilities since she was very young, a discipline that has affected her profoundly and yet she has still been able to keep the core of who she is true She s fiercely loyal to those that she considers her own, and her love for her immediate family, and the SnowDancer wolf pack whom she considers an extended family is palpable, and a driving force behind a lot of her actions concerning her abilities She s funny and quick, and while she may be young, the things that she s had to go through in her life has shaped the woman she s become, and she s stronger for it A strength she needs when she finally decides to pit the force of her personality against that of Hawke s Reading how well the two of them compliment each other, in both public and private scenarios, is a joy.One of the main conflicts between Sienna and Hawke, aside from the age issue which was handled really well early in the book is Sienna s desire for the mating bond, and Hawke s belief in his inability to give it to her How this conflict was wrapped up was extremely satisfying for me, since it had been an ongoing debate between a friend and I for the past year What was evenfun to read about is Hawke teaching Sienna to play Aside from the huge sexual attraction between them Sienna has never played before, since at an early age, the destructiveness of her abilities has been drilled into her and she s never been able to be anything but an adult The parts where Hawke and Sienna are just hanging out and enjoying each other s company are some of the best parts of the book, especially since there is a war that is about to explode between the two strongest changeling packs, SnowDancer and DarkRiver, and the Pure Psy zealots under Henry Scott With SnowDancer being the largest of the two changeling packs, that s where most of the strategic strikes against changelings occur And boy are the strikes devastating The war is most definitely on It is not tied up as completely as I would have liked, or even expected, but it is finished in a way that completes the arc while also allowing for other stories in this universe to continue.There are some really great moments in the book too, that have nothing to do with Hawke and Sienna, and everything to do with the love of the pack for their alpha They understand the sacrifices that he s had to make to be the leader that they need, and they re grateful and love him for it I don t often verbally Aww while reading books, but there is a scene later in the book between the pack and their alpha that definitely made me verbally Aww.Both Judd and Brenna make significant appearances in this book, and Judd s just as awesome as usual He s still one of my most favorite heroes in the Psy Changeling universe outside of Hawke, and he had some really great moments with both Hawke and Sienna The poignant moments that he had with his mate, Brenna, were great, and really spoke to the depth of love those two share Lucas and Sascha are also in the book quite a bit, with both of them helping both Hawke and Sienna learn to understand each other, fight against the Psy and Henry Scottand most importantlythe baby is finally born We also get to seeof Kit, whom I d been pretty indifferent to in past books Seeing him through Sienna s eyes makes me interested in his story There s also quite a bit with Walker and Lara who get an emotional side romance as well , Nikita and Kaleb, the Ghost, Vaughn, Riley, Indigo and Andrew I would have loved to seeVasic but you can t have everything and there is plenty in this book that made up for it The Arrow Squad has always intrigued me, and where they end up falling in this war on Silence still remains to be seen.We even get a flashback scene to that very first meeting between Hawke and Sienna I LOVED THAT Seriously I had been wanting something like that for years right along with a hint at the shenanigans that happened around Sienna s 18th birthday party and we got that too This book hit every note that I could possibly want it to hit and a few .Overall, the love story between Hawke and Sienna is an emotional one, and by the time they both come out on the other side, they truly are the alpha pair that I envisioned all those years ago when I read StS, and I noticed Sienna noticing Hawke and Hawke noticing back.To sum up this book in

    Hawke Snow SnowDancer Alpha and Sienna Lauren PsyExcept I never had a prayer when it came to you You re in my every breath and every thought, intertwined so deep inside me that love s not a strong enough word you have my devotion, your name branded on my soul, my wolf yours to command A hundred years It ll never be enough I want eternity Tears, slow and quiet, ran down Sienna s cheeks He wasn t finished You have the power to tear me to pieces, to wound me so deep and true that I ll Hawke Snow SnowDancer Alpha and Sienna Lauren PsyExcept I never had a prayer when it came to you You re in my every breath and every thought, intertwined so deep inside me that love s not a strong enough word you have my devotion, your name branded on my soul, my wolf yours to command A hundred years It ll never be enough I want eternity Tears, slow and quiet, ran down Sienna s cheeks He wasn t finished You have the power to tear me to pieces, to wound me so deep and true that I ll never recover I am super happy with the story of the imposing and dominant Alpha and the much younger but powerful psy girl Their story was building since several books until now In the previous books Hawke was always trying to avoid Sienna and Sienna always seemed to want something from Hawke.Their book starts in the same manner Sienna now is an adult who is playful and happy, she likes having a good time, she has good friends and she isbalanced with her powers Moreover she likes teasing Hawke secretly hoping that at some point he will break.Hawke tries to resist by running away all the time and by punishing Sienna all the time for little things, while he has vowed to stay faithful to the ghost of his intended mate He never succeeds to get her Sienna of his head The funny thing is that everyone has realised his feelings Some even tease him without taking into account that he is a scary Alpha wolf.I loved the fact that Hawke and Sienna dance and play around each other It is like they have started a mating dance without realising it.The problems that they need to face are two except the memory of a dead girl of course 1 Enemies who want to destroy the Snowdancer pack and who keep attacking 2 The finite of Sienna s life As her powers grow stronger, Sienna does not have much time left.But Hawke will never let her goAh baby, you know I do what I want Rubbing his chin on her hair, he squeezed her hip Man and wolf, we both adore you No way am I letting you go after the hell you ve put me through over the years Besides the story of Hawke and Sienna, there is also the secondary story of Walker Psy and Sienna s uncle and Lara changeling and pack s healer in this book, which I also found fascinatingWho do you belong to, Lara he asked quietly You It was a whisper Only you

    Update and it s as good the x time as it was the first time after another reread, I m happy to say I just love Hawke and Sienna This is HANDS DOWNS the BEST BOOK in the Psy Changeling series.It deserves 6 stars Kiss of Snow was everything I hoped for and so muchFinally, finally, after nine books of waiting, Hawke and Sienna finally had their HEA Nalini Singh had us waiting for a long time and it worked The anticipation almost Update and it s as good the x time as it was the first time after another reread, I m happy to say I just love Hawke and Sienna This is HANDS DOWNS the BEST BOOK in the Psy Changeling series.It deserves 6 stars Kiss of Snow was everything I hoped for and so muchFinally, finally, after nine books of waiting, Hawke and Sienna finally had their HEA Nalini Singh had us waiting for a long time and it worked The anticipation almost killed me But the delivery just amazed me.After many teasers, tidbits and rumors, Hawke finally wrestled his demons, misgivings and listened to his wolf and went after what he really wanted Sienna As the pack alpha, such a decision was not easy, and his struggles were evident and raw The age gap was a huge consideration on his side, a hurdle that felt as deep as a chasm His concern was understandable but Sienna, so mature for her age, kicked that notion to the curb pretty quickly And I just wanted to stand up and applaud her That girl was something else Sienna was strong, down to earth, knew exactly what she wanted, and was prepared for the outcome as well for whatever the future held and threw into her path She would conquer it all The sexual tension was literally explosive The wait for Hawke and Sienna s HEA was as excruciating as rewarding Both needed time to accept the fact that they were missing pieces to each other s happiness They completed one another With Sienna, Hawke could just be Hawke, and in contrast Sienna didn t have to be afraid letting go They complimented each other in the best of ways And filled the missing pieces to their happiness.Kiss of Snow is the best book she s every written and as a bonus, Hawke and Sienna s story continues in Tangle of Need One and a half books of Hawke and Sienna how PERFECT is that

    Unpopular opinion alert after waiting forever for Hawke s book, this disappointed me actually, I never said I was sorry Don t put words in my mouth, you lunatic Anyway, why didn t I like it First, there was a secondary love story going on between two of the possibly most boring beings on the planet Their story was like watching paint dry And, not the fun kind of watching paint dry Plain white wall paint.Secondly, it had a creepy feel to it, in a pedo bear way yes, PedoBear, I mentioned your Unpopular opinion alert after waiting forever for Hawke s book, this disappointed me actually, I never said I was sorry Don t put words in my mouth, you lunatic Anyway, why didn t I like it First, there was a secondary love story going on between two of the possibly most boring beings on the planet Their story was like watching paint dry And, not the fun kind of watching paint dry Plain white wall paint.Secondly, it had a creepy feel to it, in a pedo bear way yes, PedoBear, I mentioned your name Now go away You re creeping me out Hawke was at least 30 maybe even older because his hair has silver streaks in it, and Sienna was 19 Over and over again, the book tries to justify the age difference by saying how she is older than her age Grown up too quickly, etc Because of her great powers.Ummm, no She s still a 19 yr old virgin that this old guy is aggressively pursuing to take as his lover Eww Just ewww All I can think of is that Saturday Night Live skit I m grossed out and laughing at the same time And, Hawke is super aggressive with her He tells her that he is going to take her as his lover and then asks her if she is scared When she says no , he tells her that she should be Really He tells this young inexperienced girl that she should be afraid of sex with him That s his pick up line I did, however, like that this psy war that we have been waiting for, like forever, finally had some action And, I liked Sienna.Other than that kind of a let down.I need a break from this series for a bit Too much alpha male overload at the moment Anyone have any recommendations of something with an actual decent nice guy

    Favorite Quote You sure you want to play with the wolf, baby Favorite Quote 2 The crowd was chanting, kiss, kiss, kiss when Hawke walked inside.That was when Sienna learned the meaning of the term alpha.Favorite Quote 3 Scared Hawke s smile held no humor You should be baby Then he kissed her and it was no tender exploration, no playful tease This was the kiss of a man who knew precisely what he wanted.Hawke, alpha of the SnowDancer pack and Sienna, a Psy that has found refuge wi Favorite Quote You sure you want to play with the wolf, baby Favorite Quote 2 The crowd was chanting, kiss, kiss, kiss when Hawke walked inside.That was when Sienna learned the meaning of the term alpha.Favorite Quote 3 Scared Hawke s smile held no humor You should be baby Then he kissed her and it was no tender exploration, no playful tease This was the kiss of a man who knew precisely what he wanted.Hawke, alpha of the SnowDancer pack and Sienna, a Psy that has found refuge with the SnowDancers have been dancing around each other for some time now They both might have acted on their lust for each other but Sienna is just now 19 Sienna is also an extremely powerful X Psy if her powers get out of control, she can decimate everything around her Now living outside of Silence, no one knows exactly what is going to happen to her Her powers are extremely volatile She may be the only X cardinal ever born No X Psy has lives past their 25th birthday And that was within Silence.Hawke can t deny the attraction, but he lost his mate when he was very young Knowing a wolf only mates once, he doesn t know if Sienna can handle the demands his wolf would place upon her But as he says Pack is life, and Pack knows these two are meant for each other With their support and threats from Sienna s uncle these two take a chance.Meanwhile, the Psy Council is disintegrating Sides are being taken, betrayals are in progress There are those who want a race of Pure Psy where Silence is law While a civil war is on the horizon and some want to take the shifters down with them.Kiss of Snow is one of my most highly anticipated books of 2011 I fell in love with Hawke many books ago, and we finally get his story with Sienna First let me say I love how Nalini writes her shifters So sexy, sensual and physical And Hawke does not disappoint Some of the things that come out of his mouth melted me into a puddle of goo He calls Sienna baby a lot and it s hot He has to learn to walk the line between being Sienna s alpha and her lover He is of course alpha down to his core, and Sienna soon learns playing with his wolf isfun than she ever thought They play games, they dance around one another and in the end, they have a beautiful relationship.While the sexual tension is off the wall, halfway through the book, maybe even a little farther I was ready for it to progress tothan just tension There are so many almost moments they almost kiss, they almost embrace, they almost get physical But Hawke s phone rings, or Psy attack, or someone interrupts them At a certain point it became a little frustrating and distracting But by the end of the book I was able to look back on their moments together with fondness.Sienna is a X Psy, and kind of in the dark with how to control her powers and what her eventual outcome will be At a young age, she was taken from her home to be Ming s prot g She went into silence by the age of nine There is a lot of unknown for her out in the real world There is rumor of an elusive journal written in the 70 s that might give her some answers, and this plays in well in the book I think Nalini Singh does a nice job portraying Sienna she has inner strength and confidence, but when her power flares up she really loses all control.I have been disappointed in the past few books with how the Psy war has progressed or how it has not progressed In Kiss of Snow I think that storyline has a littlemeat I still wantmaybe justfrom the Psy s point of view But at least in this one, the Psy mean business and it feltlike they are a threat to the shifters.Walker Lauren, Sienna s uncle has a really nice romance in this one with Lara, the SnowDancer healer I really liked both of them and thought their romance brought a lot to this story We also get a lot with Judd, Sienna s other uncle since he is so close with Sienna and helps her with her volatile powers Oh Judd you sexy former Psy He has some great lines and one in particular very smexy scene It s so nice we get an intimate glimpse into some of the characters that have already had their book.Sascha and Lucas have a storyline that will make you smile I really enjoy the relationship the Cats now have with the wolves It feels like a brotherly relationship with good natured bickering very entertaining to read.For such an anticipated book, Kiss of Snow delivers I even think this one can be read as a stand alone You might be a bit confused on the Psy war, but overall I think it would read well on it s own Of course, this entire series is great, and I recommend it to everyone.Rating B
