Liz Loves Books

I love to read and to talk about books. I review many of the books I read. I do not accept any author/publisher submissions for reviews. I do not read or review ARCs. I do not enter any giveaways or contests. I obtain the books I review by purchasing them at the same price they are offered to the general public at the time of purchase. My reviews are intended for the use of my fellow readers. They are not advertising or promotion. They are not beta reads or constructive criticism or editing or advice to the author. My only obligation to the author is to pay the price charged for the book at the time of purchase. My reviews are sometimes critical and I will not stop posting critical reviews just to spare delicate authors' feelings. I am happy to make new friends, but friend requests from authors or promoters who have few or no books (and/or friends) in common with me and write or promote categories I do not read (especially new adult) will be ignored. I used to read more self-published books. After recent meltdowns by self-published authors, I now only read self-published authors I've previously read or who have been recommended to me by fellow readers I trust. I also used to read young adult/new adult books but rarely do so now.

Mine to Possess (Psy-Changeling Series #4)

Mine to Possess - Nalini Singh Loved the premise and found it refreshing for the changeup from Psy/Changeling couples. Loved the additional world building and additions to the rebellion/intrigue storyarc. Loved the little bits of Kaleb Krycek manipulating the Council (and he better get his own book eventually gosh darn it!). Loved everything about Clay. Talin, on the other hand, was more difficult for me to like or love. She has my sympathy - she's been through a lot and she's a necessary element to the overall story being told in the series. However, she does a few TSTL things, and has that whole Romancelandia "Woe, I am bad for him! I must leave!" thing going on for most of the book. Doesn't help that the tight-knit Changelings and their Psy mates are reluctant to accept her at first. Overall, despite wanting to shake some sense into Talin, I enjoyed the book. It's not my favorite in the series but still very good.
