Back to the world of Psy-Changeling. This is a series that I’ve loved since I read the first book, Slave to Sensation, back in 2013. I’ve sense devoured the series and grab every new book as soon as possible. Now, the series has sorta spun off to the Psy-Changeling Trinity series, which moves out of the San Francisco area and to new characters.

In Ocean Light, we finally get to learn more about the water changelings. While most of the packs are mostly a single species, like the leopards, wolves and bears, the water changelings are all the different species into one group. They are lesser in number and many are more solitary than the other shifters, so have one group encompass them all makes sense. They still have a fierce devotion to their group.

Bowen Knight is a character we’ve known for several books now. He is the security specialist and leader of the Human Alliance. He got an implant to help block the Psy from ever attacking his mind. Problem is, that this blocker has a time limit on it. He will not live much longer unless it is removed, which would make him vulnerable to the Psy, which he isn’t willing to do. Black Sea changelings have offered to help.

Kaia Luna is a water changeling in Black Sea. Her sister is working to try to solve Bowen’s issue. Kaia is helping, because she does have a medical background, even though she gave it up for her first love, cooking. She has a very strong heart and is part of the glue that is keeping Black Sea together.

While a large part of this story focuses on trying to Bowen through his deadline without his death, there is also the vanishing of several of the Black Sea changelings. Because the oceans are so vast and so many of the changelings go out into the deep on solitary swims, it is very hard to keep track of everyone, but there are some that it is known that they are not just missing, but dead at the hands of fishing vessels and the Human Alliance does appear that they might be involved, which puts strain between Bowen and Black Sea.

I loved learning so much more about Black Sea and seeing how they all work together. Even with all the different species, they are still very much family. It was also interesting seeing how the animal’s personality affected the person too. I hope to see more of the water changelings in future books.

Ocean Light Audiobook Narration

4.5 Hearts

Angela Dawe continues to nail the narration of this series. I just love all of the voices that she chooses for characters. I think she really brings out their personalities. I think her pacing and tone are perfect as well. If you haven’t tried listening to Angela Dawe, I highly recommend her.

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. Glad you enjoyed your return to this world, Melanie. Someday I’ll start this series. LOL I do like the sound of the water changelings…that’s different. 🙂

  2. I’ve only read 2 of her books. One I liked and one I didn’t. This sounds good.

    • I really enjoy both this series and her Guild Hunter (vampires and angels). I haven’t tried any of her contemporary stories. I don’t think I LOVED either of the book 1s, but the more I read, the more I love this series.

  3. I still think about that thing you pointed out

    • I didn’t put that into my review because of spoilers. Still love the story.

  4. I was so eager to get the indepth look at the world of the water changelings that I almost didn’t care about the actual story. LOL Okay, I cared…

    I am eager to see what comes next after that finish.

    • Hahaha. I did love learning more about the water changelings. I knew the story would be good, because all of Nalini’s stories are good. I’m eager to see what’s next in this world too.

  5. This is such a GREAT series, I just adore each book in this world that Singh has created. I really loved these underwater changelings, they were so fun especially in how secretive they are about their true forms. Glad you enjoyed this one. 🙂

    • They were so secretive. It was interesting to see how this “pack” was so much different than the mostly single species packs we’ve read up until this point.

  6. I really enjoyed this one too. The water changelings are fascinating since there is such a variety. Angela Dawe is amazing. She’s one of my favorite narrators. She did such a great job with Ocean Light!

    • Angela Dawe does such a great job with this series. He’s one of my favorites too.

  7. I’ve only read and enjoyed the first book in each series but I want to get back to those as I did really like them. Anne – Books of My Heart

    • I hope you get a chance to get back to this series. It is a lot of fun.

  8. I feel like it’s been forever since I read this one. I do recall I was very happy to FINALLY learn more about the aquatic shifters. It’s been bugging me since they first came into the story back in the original series. I like how they are all different species that come together.

    This is a series I read – but I recently listened to a series narrated by Angela Dawe and loved her. I may need to do a re-read via audiobooks.

    • I’m so far behind on getting reviews posted. I think Angela Dawe does a great job with this series.

  9. One day I really will try this series. I’ve been trying to get caught up on series I’ve already started but the list is long LOL! I will add this to the pile though, a lot of people seem to really like it. Glad this was another good installment.

    • I know exactly how that works. So many great series out there, it is hard to get to them all. Then all those authors keep creating new ones too (how dare they, it’s like they don’t even care that our TBRs grow like weeds. JK LOL).

  10. Man I have got to read this woman! thanks Melanie

    • I love Nalini Singh. I read two different paranormal series from her. I’ve heard really great things about her contemporary romance novels too, but have yet to try them. I will one day.
