He is a fairly new alpha, one of a fractured clan, and who is trying to adjust to this new and changing world. Valentin recognizes that the icy and powerful Silver Mercant, Kaleb Krychek’s right hand, is his mate.

Review: Shards of Hope by Nalini Singh

Review: Shards of Hope by Nalini Singh Shards of Hope Author: Nalini Singh Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Opening shortly after the conclusion of the previous book, Shards of Hope shares the story of a post-Silence world, one which sees the fierce and deadly Arrows trying to adapt. Arrow leader Aden, along with one of his top commanders, Zaira, is taken captive by an unknown group, resulting in a temporary disconnect from the PsyNet.
