Used to cold silence, Faith NightStar is suddenly being tormented by dark visions of blood and murder. A bad sign for anyone, but worse for Faith, an F-Psy with the highly sought after ability to predict the future. Then the visions show her something even more dangerous - aching need...exquisite pleasure. But so powerful is her sight, so fragile the state of her mind, that the very emotions she yearns to embrace could be the end of her.

Changeling Vaughn D'Angelo can take the form of either man or jaguar, but it is his animal side that is overwhelmingly drawn to Faith. The jaguar's instinct is to claim this woman it finds so utterly fascinating and the man has no argument. But while Vaughn craves sensation and hungers to pleasure Faith in every way, desire is a danger that could snap the last threads of her sanity. And there are Psy who need Faith's sight for their own purposes. They must keep her silenced - and keep her from Vaughn.

Book 2. I was excited for this one because of Vaughn! Please I was curious to continue this series. I want to see Silence fall darnit!

In this one, we have Faith and Vaughn. Faith is a F-Psy. She is highly sought after for her ability to predict the future. However, things have been very dark lately. She is being tormented by dark visions of blood and murder. Everyone is at risk. She goes to the changelings near her who protect the defector Psy for help. Changeling, Vaughn, can be a man or jaguar, but is it his animal side that is drawn to Faith and wants to save her from the Silence and from the other Psy who want to harm her or hurt her...or both. 

Ooo Vaughn. Poor thing. 

Also - poor Faith. She is falling apart. I would not want to be a F-Psy. Or any Psy. They are cold. Faith especially so since she just is forced to use her gifts for business reasons. She has to keep a lot of walls up because F-Psy will eventually lose their minds (or so they say). No thank youuuuuuu!

The romance was the main focus in this one. More so then the previous, but honestly...the solution to all their problems was an easy one. SOOOOO I get why they needed to love first and become mated first before they could see the easy solution. 

My only issue with this one was how quickly they were lusting for each other and acting on those feelings especially with how many walls she has to have up. It for her and how sensitive she is. I feel she should've put up more of a fight personally.

Loved the narrator. She is perfect for the characters...especially the PSY. 

I'll give this 4 stars overall. I really enjoyed it and I love Vaughn. I do wish Faith put up more of a fight. ;) lol. The narrator was fantastic! I can't wait for the next.

I just finished this one today for the Readalong and yes, Vaughn and his playful cat. I agree about not wanting to be an F-Psy. No way, Jose! I do love a few of the Psy especially in a romance with the sensual Changelings, but in general, I'm with you particularly for those vicious council members. I'm loving the narrator, too.

I read this one so long ago. Psy/Changeling was one of my first big romance series that I read. I remember thinking book 2 was a lot like book 1, but I still loved it. This series is soooo good. But you have a while to go before you see some action over ending Silence.
