The "smoldering heat, epic romance, and awesome action"* of Nalini Singh's New York Times bestselling series continues as two Arrows are caught in a chilling conspiracy that spans all three races...

Awakening in a darkened cell, their psychic abilities blocked, Aden and Zaira break free from their mysterious prison, only to find themselves in an inhospitable landscape far from civilization. To survive they must make it to the hidden home of a predatory changeling pack that doesn't welcome outsiders.

And they must survive. A shadowy enemy has targeted the Arrow squad, and Aden will cross any line to give his people hope for a new future. Zaira has no such hope. Too damaged to return from the abyss, her driving goal is to protect Aden, the only person who always comes back for her no matter what.

But Aden's passionate determination may not be enough. The emotionless chill of the Silence Protocol existed for a reason: for the violent, and the insane, and the irreparably broken...like Zaira.

It hurts me to say this but I didn't really connect with this book and it's probably my least favorite of the whole series. Nalini Singh's writing is still spot on and her storytelling is wonderful but I struggle with her characters in this one. I liked Aden but he also felt a bit flat to me, like so much of his personality is still being suppressed. The real struggle for me was Zaira, I just couldn't connect with her and frankly, I think Singh did too good of a job convincing me of Zaira's damaged nature. Her obsession with Aden was also a little unnerving and it's didn't seem particularly healthy.

Too much repetition of the heroine's tortured past and feelings. However, this is one of my 2 current favorite authors and my favorite series of those she creates. The last 2 in the series feel weaker than all previous, which I have reread 3 times. I recommend the series heartily.

Book #14 of Psy-changeling series, preceded by Shield of Winter and followed by...#15. Fun, exciting story of Aden, the leader of all Arrows and Zaira, a "broken" combat arrow. Long story, that start off really good. I like their struggle and escape. I also like the time Aden and Zaira spend while healing. I didn't like the repetitiveness of Zaira's "Monster" story. But overall great book.
