Book Review: Mine to Possess

  • ISBN-10: 0425220168
  • ISBN-13: 978-0425220160
I have read all the books in this series and this one is as strong as all the others. While they are romances and the stories are driven by the relationship of the hero and heroine - there is alot of action, alot of intrigue and alot thrill/mystery. Nalini Singh is a gifted story teller and she knows her craft well and she executes brilliantly!

I will say this - the first three books in the series work well as stand alone stories - and while this story is strong - the love affair between Clay and Talin is poignant, beautiful and powerful - but Nalini is carrying the series arc - driving the overacing plot a good bit in this book and I think if you have missed the first three books- you would still have a pleasant read this round - but you would miss many of the finer points.

I also like the way she takes on some really huge social issues - the series is full of them - but in this book Talin is a surviver of abuse - and horrible abuse at that and it takes years for Talin to cope and find herself and her courage is beautiful - but I also admire that Nalini does not glose over the difficulties and the trauma nor does she get on her soapbox. It is in my opinion very well executed!
