This is part of a series by Ms. Singh and it would be best read after reading at least some of the previous books. It has a complex world where there are three groups of people; humans, changelings and psy. Each group has its own characteristics. This book is primarily about a group of psy and the figuring out how to stop a wave of death and destruction. There are changelings who play a part of the story but no humans. While this is a romance, and a very good one, it is also a story about hope and change. Ivy shouldn’t be attracted to an Arrow as they are known killers. Vasic knows that he is a killer and not worthy of love or a family life. They are paired together to work on stopping the collapse of the net psy need to live and to minimize the deadly actions that accompany the collapse. Their story is emotional and unexpected. The background is intense. I got so wrapped up in this story that sleep was not an option. I had to learn what happened. Absolutely fantastic story that I will probably read again.
The protocol of Silence has been ended but the psy aren’t sure what to do. For 100 years, they have controlled their emotions and now they don’t have too. But, scarier is the fact that there are outbursts of unexplained violence as sections of the net all psy are attached to becomes infected with a virus and collapses. It is thought those psy with the marker E might be the answer but those psy have been treated to remove that marker for years. Ivy is one of the treated psy. Regardless, her score was high and the psy has to hope she can work around the treatment. The Arrow Vasic is sent to get her. He was sent on this easy mission because he is close to going over the edge. Vasic is shocked when Ivy treats him as normal and isn’t scared of him being an Arrow. With the lives of millions on the line unless the E psy can figure out their role in keeping the net healthy, Ivy and Vasic begin a relationship that no one expected, including them! Will there be a happy ending or will the psy be doomed?
