Review: Silver Silence by Nalini Singh

Reviewed by Jen

I’ve been a fan of the Psy Changeling series for a long time. And if at any point you would’ve asked me which of Nalini Singh’s heroes were my favorite, I would have said without hesitation, the ice cold Psy men who are thawed into emotion by their heroines. Kaleb… Judd… my beloved Arrows… now they have some serious competition in a lovely gentleman bear named Valentin.

I absolutely, completely, 100% fell in love with this changeling. He is head over heels for Silver Mercant and he is unwavering in his devotion to her. As far as I’m concerned, he says everything right; he does everything right; he is sexy; he is powerful; he is all of the things.

Silver, you may remember was Kaleb’s assistant for a long time. She is part of a powerful Psy family that works a little under the radar. Now she is the head of a worldwide emergency network, which brings together Psy, Changelings, and humans to work together to help each other. And the wrong people are taking notice of her good work.

Someone tries to kill Silver. And the bear who was trying to court her ends up bringing her back to his den in order to keep her safe. Silver is Silent, well, mostly. She has always had a small soft spot for Valentin. But once she is in his home, and sees what and amazing Alpha he is and sees more layers to the man, it gets harder and harder to resist his overtures.

I love how we are still getting surprised by new Psy designations like we get with Silver. The way her Silence breaks is different from everyone else in the previous books, which is cool. And as much as I loved the wolves and the other Changelings we have been exposed to in the past, they’ve got nothing on the Bears. I. Love. The Bears.

Just about the entire book takes place in Russia, so there is a little bit of the Russian language peppered in. I was cool with that, but as dorky as it sounds I loved all the little bear expressions even more. It was so endearing.

There are no Snow Dancer answer or Dark River folks in this book, but Kaleb is there and we talk about all of the major changes that have come about in the series. It still feels very cohesive with the other books.

I did get a little tired of the whole “Silver Fucking Merchant” moniker, but otherwise I really had no complaints about this book. I did not want to put it down. I cried twice. I laughed so much more. And I was totally satisfied with the ending. Nalini Singh is made of awesome.

  1. I truly agree, Nalini Singh is made of awesome. I’m still working on this book, but I laugh every time I hear someone says “Bears”, like what can you do?? LOL I’m tempted to ask you what made you cry, but I don’t want to spoil it. I love the bears, especially Valentin. When he claims to be a teddy bear, I wholeheartedly agree!
