Lillie's Review: Storm Echo

Storm Echo
by Nalini Singh
Publisher: Berkley (August 9, 2022)
Series: Psy-Changeling Trinity, 6
Genre: Paranormal Romance (M/F)

NYT bestselling author Nalini Singh takes us into the hearts of two fractured people in a world on the brink of a psychic Armageddon . . .

Silence has fallen. The Psy are free to feel emotion. Free to love. But Silence was never a prison for Ivan Mercant. The biggest threat to his future lies dormant in his brain—a psychic monster that wants only to feed. And now, the brutal leash he’s kept on that monster is slipping. He prepared for this day, for the end of Ivan Mercant . . . but that was before he met Lei.

As primal as she is human, this wild changeling brings color into his life, laughter to his soul. Then the dream shatters in a rain of blood, in silent bodies in the snow. Lei is gone. Vanished without a trace . . . until he meets strangely familiar eyes across a busy San Francisco street.

Soleil Bijoux Garcia is a healer who has lost everything. She exists in a world of desolate aloneness . . . till the day she finds herself face-to-face with a lethal stranger. The animal who is her other half knows this man, but her memories are tattered fragments. Sorrow and a need for vengeance are all that drive her. Her mission? To kill the alpha of the DarkRiver leopard pack.

But fate has other plans. Soon, a deadly soldier who believes himself a monster and a broken healer might be all that stand between life and death for the entire Psy race.

Lillie's Review:

What a ride!

Storm Echo picks up right where Last Guard ended with the event many of us were anticipating/dreading. And it was just as fascinating as I was hoping it would be. This book answers some of the questions we’ve all been speculating about. And opens up new questions.

I loved every part of Soleil and Ivan’s romance. Two people broken more than a little, fighting through grief and pain to heal themselves and each other as they find love. This is the perfect sunshine/grumpy trope; it just takes the sunshine a little longer to break through the clouds. 

But as much as I loved the suspense arch and romance, what really stole the show for me were the Mercants. Ivan is who he is because of the love and loyalty of Arwen, Silver, and Canto. And especially Ena Mercant. Outwardly Silent to the world, the furious and unwavering love Ena has for her family grabs me by the heart in every scene with her and won’t let me go. I may have a slight crush on Ena that’s not going to end. 

Storm Echo is easily a 5 star read. Nalini Singh did it again. 


Thanks for the review, Lillie!


Until Next Time,
