Overview

A Psy/Changeling novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Shards of Hope, Shield of Winter, and Heart of Obsidian..."the alpha author of paranormal romance" (Booklist).

A ghost returns from a leopard changeling’s past, making him question everything—even his base animal instincts…

Clay Bennett is a powerful DarkRiver sentinel, but he grew up in the slums with his human mother, never knowing his changeling father. As a young boy without the bonds of Pack, he tried to stifle his animal nature. He failed…and committed the most extreme act of violence, killing a man and losing his best friend, Talin, in the bloody aftermath. Everything good in him died the day he was told that she, too, was dead.

Talin McKade barely survived a childhood drenched in bloodshed and terror. Now a new nightmare is stalking her life—the street children she works to protect are disappearing and turning up dead. Determined to keep them safe, she unlocks the darkest secret in her heart and returns to ask the help of the strongest man she knows...

Clay lost Talin once. He will not let her go again, his hunger to possess her, a clawing need born of the leopard within. As they race to save the innocent, Clay and Talin must face the violent truths of their past…or lose everything that ever mattered.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Earth of 2080 continues a cold war with the chilling aliens the Psy in Singh's fourth fierce installment of the Psy-Changeling series (after Caressed by Ice). Half-human, half-leopard changeling Clay Bennett is shocked when lovely Talin McKade, wracked with illness and similarly half-changeling, returns to his life, having disappeared from his childhood 20 years before. Talin works at San Francisco's Shine Foundation, dedicated to helping gifted but needy children, and a growing number of her missing charges have been turning up sans brains. There's plenty of purring passion to keeps things hot as the Leopard shape-shifters Clay and Tally fall breathlessly in love, while the Psy continue to use children as guinea pigs for developing a hive mind. While this is paranormal romance at its best, newcomers are advised to check out the earlier adventures first. (Feb.)

    1.) Good but not my fave
    2.) Interested in Clay's story once I learned his background
    3.) Liked Talin but a little bummed by lack of Psy love interest
    4.) Good plot but it didn't progress the general arc of the series with respect to Psy-Changeling relationship as the others had

    Phenomenal Addition to the Series

    On what should have been a simple mission of rounding up rowdy Changeling teens, sentinel Clay detects the scent of a human woman he'd thought was long dead. Talin lied about her death to get some distance from the traumatic memories of her past. However, the street kids that she mentors start disappearing and Clay is the only one she can turn to for help. Clay finds it hard to forgive Tally for her desertion, but now that she's back, he won't let her go. In the hunt for the predators after the kids, Clay must reconcile himself to his past and Tally must cope with her future.Building the arc started in 'Caressed by Ice,' even more is learned about the Psy race and the world before the Silence Protocol. The Snowdancers make cameo appearances and the plot delves further into the DarkRiver world. With every book, Ms. Singh only creates further depth in the Psy/Changeling/Human world. Tally and Clay are well developed with full-fledged histories and Ms. Singh gives tantalizing glimpses into their future. Alas, the reader will have to wait until 'Hostage to Pleasure' to see these fascinating characters again.

    NUMBER OF HEARTS:  4 1/2 REVIEW:   Clay Bennett has been chasing

    NUMBER OF HEARTS:  4 1/2
    REVIEW:  
    Clay Bennett has been chasing a ghost for years.  Never in his wildest dreams did he ever think that that ghost would seek him out.    But that is what just happened.  The most important person to him in his life and someone who was suppose to be dead just stepped back into his life.  But along with turning Clay’s world upside down with the fact that she is a live, Talin brings with her many secrets.  Secrets that Clay may not be able to overlook. 

    Talin McKade is in dire need of help and there is only one person in the world that can help her.  But Will Caly help her after he learns what she did, who she has becomes and the fact that there can be no future? 

    Dang this girl can tell a story!!!!   Can Nalini write a bad story?  I think not!!  Clay and Talin have such a tortured past.  It broke my heart so many time while listening to this story.   It was great to watch both of them grow and learn to trust and love.   

    My only complaint about this story was that I was not wild about the voice that Angela picked for Clay.  But in reality it most likely was the perfect voice for Clay.  He all dark, dangerous and very animal.

    Serisoulsy in love with Nalini and the Psy-Changeling series!!

    5 Possessive Stars

    I am loving this series! I can't believe I did not pick these books up sooner. Nalini Singh is an amazing author who knows how to tell a story. The world she created is so in-depth and intriguing I get pulled in. Her characters work well together, complement each other, and the story is interesting and adventures. 

    “Mine to Possess” focus is about the main couple's complicated and enduring relationship rather than the world-building aspect of the over all story. We also learn about a new aspect in the Psy-Changeling world the Human side as well as finding out about the Forgotten. 
    Tally and Clay’s tragic yet inspiring love story was simply phenomenal. I liked that the main couple bonded as children and where separated by tragedy and violence which marked their destinies. They are brought back together by murder and mayhem and are now getting to know each other again.

    Mine to Possess is a must read! I recommend reading the Psy-Changeling series in order, so you can understand the characters and world that Nalini Singh as created.

    Loved it! 
    This love story of two childhood friends finding each other is emotionally powerful and sets itself against the full colored background of the
     Psy/Changeling/Human future world Singh has masterfully created. 

    Of all the heros in this series, I think of Clay as simply being hot. I can feel his possessive yet tender smolder through the pages.  I love
    the intimacy a shared past gives this couple and the twists and turns of this plot that make their love anew. 

    Another wonderful addition in this paranormal series that should be on everyone's shelf who love speculative romantic fiction. 

    If you haven't read this book or this series, you should, you will won't regret it.

    Another great PsyChangeling story by Nalini Singh. Talin, former

    Another great PsyChangeling story by Nalini Singh. Talin, former love interest of Clay, seeks his help with finding missing street children she works with. The only thing is that Clay thinks Talin's dead. When Clay sees her, game on. Clay decides no matter what has happened, Talin will never leave him again. I loved Clay's character but Talin's I'm still on the fence for. She was very flighty but it's understandable considering her background. While Talin is working with Clay, she has to fight her feelings and keep her secrets so she can leave him again when it's over. What she doesn't know is that Clay has already decided she is his mate, and he will never seek another. This story spends more time on the history of Talin and Clay instead of the missing kids which works. I like gettting to know my characters and creating a bond for future stories. I am anxiously awaiting the next book.

    Much more than a hot romance!

    This book is the fourth in a great series but can stand alone, if you haven't read the others yet (you will!). It offers a rich tapestry that keeps the reader riveted and turning the pages to the end. Character developement, action, and romance are cleverly woven to create a world you can reach out and touch. In this book Clay is teetering on the edge of going rogue as a leopard but is caught on the brink by the return of his childhood friend and true love, Talen. She is scarred from abuse in her past and suffering from a mysterious and progressive disease. Can they find their way back to togetherness and save each other and the stolen children that Talen is searching for? The friends and 'family that they interact with and the challenges that they overcome makes a (sometimes darkly) charming and exciting story.

    fantastic characters

    I have been eagerly awaiting this book since I finished Caressed by Ice 'within a day or two of its release'. I am pleased to say that I was not disappointed. Clay and Talin are well developed characters that just feel like they suit each other perfectly. I loved both of their backstories and I loved the fact that the book was so character driven. Many authors who write series make the mistake of spending too much time on past and future main characters, but Ms. Singh always makes sure that her main couple takes center stage. If you haven't read this series yet, start with Slave to Sensation and enjoy. You won't be disappointed.

    Nalini Singh has another homerun

    This is the 4th book in Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling series, and she just keep getting better. Mine to Possess tell of how DarkRiver leopard loner Clay is reunited with his long lost friend and one true love Talin. As they struggle with their relationship they must battle to forces of evil to save the live of innocent children. The story continues to carry and expand the Psy-Changling Universe giving get more depth to that world. I could not put this book down. It grabs you and keeps you fascinate with it's complex characters and riveting storyline.

    an excellent urban fantasy

    In 2080 the war of attrition between the Earthlings and the Psy continues unabated with hot spots seemingly bursting everywhere as neither side trusts the other. Half breed Clay Bennett was raised by a human mother in the human slums without ever knowing the changeling leopard that sired him. Two decades ago as a youngster without a guiding pack he failed to learn how to control the animal instinct of his nature and caused a deadly incident that still haunts him even as he has dedicated his life since becoming a Dark River sentinel.----------- Thus when Clay sees half-breed Talin McKade for the first time in twenty years, he is euphoric. She was his best friend as a child before the incident devastated both their lives. Like Clay, Talin has dedicated her life since the incident that shaped them she works at San Francisco's Shine Foundation helping needy children. Recently some of her kids have vanished only to return brainless victims of Psy experiments to create a hive. As the half human half Leopard pair reunite and fall in love, they work together to try to protect the young from the heinous Psy experimentation.------------------- The fourth Psy-Changeling tale, MINE TO POSSESS, is an excellent urban fantasy romance that stars two terrific half-breeds whose past contains warmth and friendship for one another, but also one shattering pivotal moment. There reconciliation is handled quite cleverly as they team up to save the children. The Psy is as insidious as ever however to fully grasp the complex Singh saga, newcomers should read the previous three superb thrillers (see SLAVE TO SENSATION, VISIONS OF HEAT and CARESSED BY ICE).------------- Harriet Klausner
