My top thoughts:
I can fully understand why Nalini Singh and this series are so popular. Here we are, 7 books in, and I’m continuing to enjoy the books. I know this one isn’t a favorite for a lot of readers because we don’t get as much of the Changlings, but I personally really enjoyed it still. I buddy read it with Anne again and she is also giving it 4 stars.
What I liked/didn’t like:
I think what I liked about Blaze of Memory the most was the deeper understanding of the Psy and also the Forgotten. I’ve come to a few new predictions (and one not new but more entrenched one) thanks to this book. So for me, it was very exciting and has me eager to see what will be happening moving forward in the series.
The romance was okay. I think probably because we don’t have a Changling in the couple it had a different kind of connection and intensity. Personally I don’t read for the romance near as much as the plot progression, so that absence didn’t bother me. And there were some things about this romance that were sweet/moving in their own, different way. I will say, this was the first book that I started to think we might not get our HEA… but of course we did. And, in typical Nalini Singh fashion, in a very fast, slightly-unexplained fashion with lots of questions left hanging. I’ve come to expect that a bit and will wait to see if the next book and/or short stories answer those questions. I think they will.
And, as always with this series, I listened to the book with the fantastic narration from Angela Dawe. She continues to deliver a performance that lets me get lost in the story and characters, even at 2x speed.
