Slave to Sensation (Psy-Changeling #1) by Nalini Singh

In a world that denies emotions, where the ruling Psy punish any sign of desire, Sascha Duncan must conceal the feelings that brand her as flawed. To reveal them would be to sentence herself to the horror of "rehabilitation" - the complete psychic erasure of everything she ever was...

Both human and animal, Lucas Hunter is a changeling hungry for the very sensations the Psy disdain. After centuries of uneasy coexistence, these two races are now on the verge of war over the brutal murders of several changeling women. Lucas is determined to find the Psy killer who butchered his packmate, and Sascha is his ticket into their closely guarded society. But he soon discovers that this ice-cold Psy is very capable of passion - and that the animal in him is fascinated by her. Caught between their conflicting worlds, Lucas and Sascha must remain bound to their identities - or sacrifice everything for a taste of darkest temptation...

So I have a confession to make, I only started reading the Psy-Changeling series this month, I know I know how could I have missed this series for so long? Well what it comes down to is children, I blame the fact that I have been hopelessly out of the loop for so long on my kids ;O)

Slave to Sensation starts off the Psy-Changeling series and introduces us to the race of the Psy as well as the changelings who both are in the world with the human race as well. We are also introduced to the concept of Silence in which the Psy have been trained out of having emotions to prevent violence in the race.

Nalini Singh does an amazing job at world building here and in creating the three distinct races the Psy, the humans and the Changelings. Ms. Singh also mixes up the ethnicity and the animal traits in this future world so that anyone should be able to relate to any number of the characters she has created. This first book in the series concentrates mainly on the leopard pack, DarkRiver, and on a very specific Psy Sascha Duncan.

As first novels in a series can tend toward information dumping, Ms. Singh avoids that and tells a fantastic love story complete with some steamy, sexy scenes. This is a book that is going on my reread shelf for sure.
