Max and Sophia know the truth of this saying, have wrested it from their traumatic childhoods when they were both abused or abandoned by those who should have cared for them most. That trauma has shaped them, honed them both into warriors for justice, and that quest brings them together in this, the terrific 8th entry in Nalini Singh's fantastic futuristic world. Joining forces on 2 missions - to seek out the force behind a concerted attack on Nikita Duncan's (the coldly Psi mother-from-hell...OR IS SHE?!)empire and to find justice for the victims of a sociopath, human cop, Max, and Psi J Corp operative, Sophia, are a perfect team for the job and a perfect romantic match. Tortured by their pasts, shaped by their flaws, theirs is one of Singh's most tender yet intense couplings to date. In past books we've been introduced to varying Psi powers: Sascha's abilities as an E (empath); Ashaya's M (medical) talents; Faith's all-seeing but hard to interpret F (forseer) capabilities; Judd's terrifying yet harnessed powers as a TK (telekinetic) and ex-military/assassin Arrow training; and now the J (justice) seeking Sophia who can literally pull the memories of very dirty deeds from the minds of criminals. Yet J's, like F's, invariably descend into insanity and Sophia's mental protective shields have deteriorated under the crushing blows of all that violence culled from the memories of others. Can Max somehow save her by pulling her from the Net...or will the twin Net Mind forces of Dark and Light have something to say about it? And as always we have the Changeling Pack at its protective best. We get to see Lucas and Sascha, Vaughn and Faith, Clay and Tally, and the lucious Dorian as they all play their roles in aiding the investigation and helping the wholly human Max to have his chance with Sophia. This is the first time we've seen a fully human character mate with either the Psi or Changelings in this world...both Tally and Dev had a little Psi in them...and Max holds his own and then some. As Silence continues to deteriorate into violence, it looks like this futuristic society of Psi, Changeling, and low man on the totem pole, the Humans, are hurtling toward some sort of showdown. And, man, will it be a doozy! Neat developments in both Nikita and Kaleb's characters also rev up the forward motion in this, my favorite of all the paranormal romance series. Fantastic!!!!!!!

I absolutely LOVED this book; it's one of my favorites in the series. One of the things I love about Nalini Singh is her attention to detail as she builds her PsyChangeling world. This book had everything for me: a breathtaking, gut-wrenching romance between Max and his Sophie, a very revealing look into Nikita's business empire, details about Sascha's pregnancy, visits with the DarkRiver cats, more information about the elusive Councilor Krychek, and a front row seat on the complex justice system and the ever widening rift between the members of the Psy Council. The tension is mounting and people are taking sides, choosing allies. It's about to get really nasty and boy, can we feel it!!!! I know most people would have preferred a romance between two changelings or a Psy-changeling romance, but humans live in Nalini's universe too, and she's made sure they're not shortchanged with this novel. Max is as intelligent, sexy, cunning, loyal and alpha as any changeling male, and I love him to bits. He's pretty spectacular, even for a 'lowly human'. Nalini writes romance that capture my heart as well as my mind. I'm forever playing connect the dots, trying to figure out what happens next. I can't wait for the next one....

I am undecided about this one. I loved this series from the start but this one and the last (Blaze of Memory) have not been my favorites. I really liked Max and Sophia but their feelings for each other seemed so rushed. It was worth the purchase and I do recommend it. At the end there is an excerpt from the next novel (Play of Passion) and it looks great. I've been waiting for Drew to get a novel since Caressed by Ice.

Synopsis Max Shannon is a good cop, one of the best in New York Enforcement. Born with a natural shield that protects him against Psy mental invasions, he knows he has little chance of advancement within the Psy- dominated power structure. The last case he expects to be assigned to is that of a murderer targeting a Psy Councilor's closest advisors. And the last woman he expects to compel him in the most sensual of ways is a Psy on the verge of catastrophic mental fracture. Max Shannon , human cop has been teamed up with Sophia Russo a Justice Psy who has been mentally exhausted doing her job. These two are paired to try to bring a sociopath killers victims bodies home and on a different front, find out if a Psy Councilors' closet advisors truly committed suicide. The chemistry is definitely hot between the two main characters , but they have to overcome tremendous odds to be together. This story is action packed and has an outlook on this world that will make you look on all the complexities of life. There is very few black and white answers in this book but various shades of gray. It is a wonderful story and definitely can be read alone but I feel if you read the other books in the series you will have a better appreciation for this novel.

In New York, Councilor Nikita Duncan finds too coincidental the deaths of several of her closest advisors and employees in the Bay area. She sends enforcer Max Shannon to San Francisco to investigate the recent deaths in order to ascertain if they were murdeedr as she suspects has occurred. Nikita trusts Max's sleuthing skills and as important his ability to thwart Psy mental influences even though he is human. Psy Justice operative Sophia Russo volunteers to assist Max although she knows that each new memory extraction may mean her death. She fully understands her mind is fracturing due to her hazardous work that also dramatically reduces life spans. This is due to the consequences of telepathic shields being lowered dangerously so the J agent can take down the barrier of the prey they extract their information from. Still she refuses to quit as she works closely with Max on his inquiry. This is a great police procedural romantic urban fantasy entry in a terrific series that seems heading to a pandemic cataclysm. Max is terrific as he understands the glass ceiling for primitive humans in law enforcement, but has unique skills that make him perfect for this investigation. The star-crossed romance enhances a terrific mystery as the world of Nalini Singh is deeply explored through the primitive cop and the Psy Justice. Harriet Klausner

My obsession continues. I love this book, this series. What a master this author is, weaving a story where there is so much uncertainty, so many surprises, and so much sensual passion. The resolution is so uncertain, this author creates a situation that has no answer, no fix. And just when she has me doubting things can ever work out, a way appears. I love that. No author has surprised me as much as this one has. One surprise in this book had me gasping out loud. Never saw that coming. No one's allegiance seems clear, at least among the Psy. I have no doubts where the changelings stand but I was pretty shocked at some of the turns among the Psy. I love that EIGHT books in, I still don't know everything and this world still holds me captive. Then the way this author writes so sensually. Sophia can't handle being touched. How does romance happen without touch? Oh it does. Sexy and hot, Max is patient and looks out for his J until touch can happen. So worth the wait. This the second one in the series that I've read without the central characters not being a changeling and I continue to be amazed that I love these stories anyway. The changelings are still there at every turn with there protective ways and pack mentality. And Max may not be a changeling but the man is an animal in so many ways. I love these books. I've discovered the cache of free short stories that go with this series on the authors website. And it's my next indulgence. Don't miss these books; they are the ultimate sensual indulgence for paranormal lovers.

This book was a let down. It was not interesting in the least and just a major bore. I love her series for the most part but this book was almost physically painful to force myself to read.

~ 4 Bonds of Justice Stars ~ I love this series. Love the characters. Love the factions. Love the world building.  Amazing! Fascinating! Interesting! Bonds of Justice is book eight in Psy-Changeling series by Nalini Singh. I had a wonderful time reading about Max and Sophia. We don’t see Max expect in Clay and Tally’s book Mine to Possess. It was a suprise to see him get his own book, but very rewarding, especially after being disappointed in the last bookBlaze of Memory. We get a great plot, lots of suspense, several new Psy being revealed, more in-depth into the Psy world and romance. I enjoyed the visits with past characters. We get to see how they are doing and the parts they play in the storyline. The Psy, at least most, are finally understanding that change is coming a type of awakening. I liked the progress of the plot with the Silence and the Council. I also liked the idea of the J-Psy, Justice Psy, they have a hard life. The concept as a whole, with the J-Spy, was interesting. The sexual tension between Max and Sophia was at an all time high. Their was no lack in making me wait and wait for the relationship to hit the critical point. As for Sophia she was a little flat I never really felt like I got to know her. Max I liked as a character, but was never completely enthralled with him. Another good book in the Psy-Changeling series. I can’t wait to read the next one.

Enforcement Detective Max Shannon has worked alot of high profile cases but this one is getting to him in ways he thought not possible. Watching Justice Psy or J Sophia Russo take the control away from serial killer was something to behold. J Psy must always be in control of their shielding but with the constant reconditioning required will eventually kill J Psy. Sophia Russo knows that she's flawed but Detective Shannon strikes a deeper need within her that she can't explain away. Sophia and Max are asked to work with Councilor Nikita Duncan because key people within and surrounding Nikita are turning up dead. As Max and Sophia start working more closely together, Sophia develops and craves to be touched by him. Sophia brings back memories that Max had forgotten like a gift. Max feels bone deep ache left by his brother River. Who is behind the killings? Can Sophia accept being touched? Can Max protect Sophia? Can River be found? Your answers await you in Bonds of Justice. I love seeing old and new character that have become favorites! I've liked Max since his introduction. Just knowing he was getting his happy ending is bright spot. Sophia appears tough as nails yet barely holding it together until she meets Max then everything changes for the better. I found the J Psy interesting and unique. I look forward to my next adventure in Psy-Changeling Universe.

I couldnt finish this book. I was enjoying the series an reading about 2 books per week until this one. I have not finished it and i have not wanted to continue with the series. I dont know why but this book just fizzled my interest in psy changlings all together. I will continue with her archangels books.
