Ah, Allegiance of Honor, how to write this review? There is a ton of stuff that goes on in this book. There isn’t a single couple in this book. It is written almost like it is the ending of the series. I had at one point thought it was the last book in this series. I mean, it is fifteen books in, and many series are getting dull before this point (not that I’ve felt this way about Psy/Changeling. Some of my favorite books are the most recent ones) While this has the feel of an end, it is not the last of the Psy/Changeling stories we will see from Nalini Singh. From what I understand, it is the end of the original series arc. There is another series arc set to come.

There is a ton going on in this story. We have people after Lucas’s and Sascha’s young daughter. We have Mercy who is about due to have her and Riley’s pupcubs. There are still issues with the Psynet. Father Perez is looking for his lost love. There is a missing BlackSea changeling. Work is progressing on the Trinity Accord to make peace between humans, changelings and the Psy. There is a scene that made me tear up (I won’t say more, so as not to spoil anything). There is also a large multipack celebration for the pupcubs. Like I said, there is a lot going on.

This was a really fun story. If it had been the end of this series, it would’ve been a great wrap up. We got to spend a lot of time with all of my favorite characters. I even started to like Nakita, which is not something I would ever think would happen. And with favorite characters, comes hated characters. Ming LeBon makes an appearance, too.

All in all, I really enjoyed my time with this story. The lack of romance will probably upset some, but for me, it has always been more about the overall arc. I read a ton of paranormal romance stories, but I read them more for the stories than the romance. Don’t get me wrong, I like the romances, but urban fantasy is truthfully a more fun genre for me. This series is more like a UF series in my mind with a different main couple in each book. It has such a strong series arc that the romance is almost secondary. Maybe it is just me. This story is more about family, be they by blood or by friendship. I loved watching characters who I didn’t think had the ability to have friends have so many by the end of this book. I think many of the characters were surprised by this fact, too.

Allegiance of Honor Audiobook Narration

4.5 Hearts

I continue to really Angela Dawe’s narration of this series. She did a phenomenal job with all the many voices she had to tackle in this book. The men and females were wonderful. Every character had very distinct voice that has followed that character throughout the entire series. Another thing that she really had to tackle in this book was the children. There had been children in past books, but not nearly as much as there was in this book. She did a great job with the little kids voices. Nada’s toddler voice with weird toddler words were great. The twin boys were really good too.

Author Nalini SinghI’ve been writing as long as I can remember and all of my stories always held a thread of romance (even when I was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his eyes). I love creating unique characters, love giving them happy endings and I even love the voices in my head. There’s no other job I would rather be doing. In September 2002, when I got the call that Silhouette Desire wanted to buy my first book, Desert Warrior, it was a dream come true. I hope to continue living the dream until I keel over of old age on my keyboard.

I’m Melanie and I live in Ohio. I have two horses and a dog. I’m an animal lover, avid book reader and audiobook listener. I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. My favorite paranormal creatures are shifters, doesn’t matter the flavor.


  1. Great review Melanie 🙂 I’m also okay with a lack of romance in UF. I tend to gravitate towards UF more and more lately.

    Is it Friday yet? I’m reading for the 3 day weekend lol

    • We are really close to Friday. I took Tuesday off too, since my mom is flying in tomorrow. Woohoo!!

      • Oh yay! I thought about taking Tuesday off, probably should have lol Hope you have a ton of fun w/ your mom 🙂

  2. I really really need to read this author! 🙂
    Thanks Melanie, great review! I’ve seen this one around.

    • She has two great PNR series. The other one starts off more UF with the same couple for the first three (??) books and then it starts switching between couples. I love both series.

  3. I loved this one too, so family oriented and yes rounding things out. It is a pity here in New Zealand the audiobooks are not available – world rights – so I read the books but know would reread them by listening if they were available. Will be interesting to see where this series goes in the new arc.

    • You just gave me my first reason to not move to New Zealand. I never had a reason to not live there, but a shortage of audiobooks would be a big one for me. Maybe they will release the audios there one day.

      • Melanie – well not so much a shortage (I still find plenty to listen to) but a definite avoidance of world rights on some by publishing companies. I should pester them I guess! Never know! It is the one reason though I’d move from New Zealand!!

  4. I thought I had already commented, maybe I’m losing my mind lol. I have reserved the right to not read your review because I am both jealous that you’ve already read/listened to it and I am no where near ready for this book (I have like 6/7 books to go before I catch up). 😛

    I am sure that this is a great review, and that you’ve touched on all that made it an awesome listen and story.

    • I completely understand. I’m the same way when I see a review for a book I know I’m going to read. I hope you’re enjoying this series.

    • I started off reading them, but switched to audio. You know me though, if I can listen, I will. I hope you’re enjoying this series as much as I have.

  5. I have always wanted to try this series but I find it so daunting when I find a series and it’s already 15 books or so in…sighs. Still might try it though…lol.

    • It is worth the try. It is a fun series. She does have another series that is a little bit shorter (Guild Hunter), which is just as much fun.

  6. I still need to start this series so I just skimmed your review, but I’m glad to see that it’s going strong this late in the game. I’m caught up on her angels and now I need to get to this

    • I love the Guild Hunter series too. If you like that one, you will like this one too.

  7. I really enjoyed this, but there was so much going on that I started to get lost. I loved seeing everyone again and catching up. My mind was lost in figuring out what was going to happen with the next arc. The Architect pretty much lists his order of revenge, but the other groups and Ming Lebon totally had my attention. This next arc of the series is going to keep me guessing and glued to the books.

    • I believe the next ARC is going to follow the next generation, but I’m not 100% sure about that. I have no idea what the story will be. I am very interested about The Architect and what is going to happen with Mig LeBon. I don’t think we’ve seen the last of either of them.

  8. Glad you enjoyed this so much, wonderful review for it. Have a Happy Fourth and a great weekend!

  9. I’ve read several of her books and really liked them.

    • I’ve read her two PNR series. I haven’t tried anything else by her.

  10. Yes, totally get it. UF is more fun for me as well and I love how friendships and family sound in this one. I was curious before I read that but that totally sealed the deal. I so cannot wait to dive into this long running series!

    • It is a long series and it really isn’t over yet. I’m so glad that there is more to come. I think UF fans will enjoy this series.

  11. That’s interesting that instead of focusing on one single couple it focused on multiple ones. It sounds like a fun way to wrap up a series or in this case a story arc. I am glad to hear you enjoyed this one so much and enjoyed spending time with your favorite characters. It sounds like a fun series!

    • It is a very fun series. it was an interesting way to wrap of this story arc. I can’t wait to see where it goes next.

  12. wow book 15? I’m so late! Iknow I have a book in this series but I haven’t read any. I really should do that!

    • It is a fun series. I recommend it. The Psy are a really interesting race. Singh’s take on shifters is interesting too. I hope you get a chance to try it sometime.

  13. Hmm yeah that wouldn’t work for me. I see it as a romance series since that’s the way the others have been done so suddenly not having a romance…ergs. Glad it worked for ya though!

    • I bet the next book would go back to a romance with a different couple for each story.
