Alexei and Memory: A Match Made In Heaven, so great
June 4, 2019
In this brave new world that has been evolving since Silence fell, Humans, Psy, and Changelings have come to new accords. The PsyNet remains in great danger of failing and causing a catastrophic loss of life, perhaps the essential end of an entire race. The empaths known as Es have only recently been allowed to use innate talents to shore up the deteriorating universe of the mind that is the Net for all Psy. They are still learning how to use nascent abilities. Empaths are usually known as healers and protectors, but Memory Aven-Rose’s gift seems very different. After she is rescued from a very long captivity by Alexi “Sexy Lexie” Vasiliev Harte while he is on patrol in the Snow Dancer territory, her unusual and previously enslaved empathic abilities look to be a possible game changer for the fracturing PsyNet. Memory’s new found freedom comes with many challenges and costs to her personally since she has been mentally and literally chained for so long. As she struggles to learn to function freely in the world and with other empaths, Alexei, who is a snarly protective wolf dealing with some devastating issues of his own, takes her for a wild Changeling ride.
Alexei is one of Hawke’s strongest, most loyal lieutenants with a big heart that bears the brunt of a tragic problem with his heritage. One of the worst anathemas in the Changeling world has stained his beloved family causing Alexei considerable grief and pain. Memory is determined to shake that growly golden wolf right out of his dark emotional pit no matter how actively he resists. Once she is truly free, Memory realizes that choosing a known hell over unknown heaven is not acceptable for herself or that stubborn wolf.
Those who are working to save the PsyNet including the uber Cardinal and de facto ruler, Kaleb Krychek, desperately need more help. They are running out of answers so a critical breach is becoming a reality. Memory’s abilities may offer some hope if she can learn to utilize them and not just see herself as a wreathed in darkness. Other more lethal Psy are “waking up” to powers that had been suppressed. These powers might prove to be another major hit to Psy survival. And while Memory is learning to live fully in the world for the first time, she is being stalked on two fronts by dangerous enemies.
This precarious new world order rests on the edge of a knife, but many in the coalition, some former enemies, work together trying to save it. With access to the PsyNet opened to her for the first time and a growing connection to Alexei despite his resistance, Memory has the opportunity to turn something dark into light and to find love in the most unexpected of places. Harte is an apt name for Alexei because he has a lot of it and would do anything, make any sacrifice to protect Memory, especially from himself.
Memory may be a small, not very physically strong Psy, but she is mighty enough to tangle with a man who is all wolf with a heart as big as the Sierras. Book three in the Psy-Changeling Trinity series, so much has changed for all the races since the fall of Silence… some of it good, some bad, and with more changes on the horizon that may put this vastly different landscape under even more pressure. Ms. Singh's finely crafted heartfelt story will please fans drawing out some very deep emotions demonstrating how love shines a light in the dark, casting out evil and filling up the broken and damaged places in the heart and mind.
