Nalini Singh is an incredibly talented author and her newest book is a testament to her visionary creativity. "Allegiance of Honor" is a novel that brings the reader back into the world of the Psy, shifters and humans at the tipping point of a new governing system. Old bias’ and new fears make this a parlous time for each community. Radicals are fighting for control while other factions are fighting for stability and equality. In the midst of this explosive conflict is the newest generation of children that are not bound by the Psy’s chains of Silence. This newest generation is a beacon for those who want change in the world and a target for those who resist the change.
Nalini Singh is a great author and does an incredible job of creating and continuing this story line. I enjoyed the novel but did find it in many aspects a wrap up or overview of what had occurred. It was great to visit previous characters and see their stories develop further but this novel is not for a reader who is looking for new romantic couple and their story. It is at its core a mystery novel within and involving previous characters. A good read if the reader knows what the book is and not assuming it is a new novel with a new love story.
The “unparalleled romantic adventure”* of Nalini Singh’s New York Times bestselling series continues as a new dawn begins for the Psy-Changeling world…
The Psy-Changeling world has undergone a staggering transformation and now stands at a crossroads. The Trinity Accord promises a new era of cooperation between disparate races and groups. It is a beacon of hope held together by many hands: old enemies, new allies, wary loners.
But a century of distrust and suspicion can’t be so easily forgotten, and it threatens to shatter Trinity from within at any moment. As rival members vie for dominance, chaos and evil gather in the shadows and a kidnapped woman’s cry for help washes up in San Francisco, while the Consortium turns its murderous gaze toward a child who is the embodiment of change, of love, of piercing hope: a child who is both Psy…and changeling.
To find the lost and protect the vulnerable—and to save Trinity—no one can stand alone. This is a time of loyalty across divisions, of bonds woven into the heart and the soul, of heroes known and unknown standing back to back and holding the line. But is an allegiance of honor even possible with traitors lurking in their midst?
