Review: Ocean Light



New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh dives beneath the surface of her Psy-Changeling world into a story of passionate devotion and selfless love…

Security specialist Bowen Knight has come back from the dead. But there’s a ticking time bomb in his head: a chip implanted to block telepathic interference that could fail at any moment–taking his brain along with it. With no time to waste, he should be back on land helping the Human Alliance. Instead, he’s at the bottom of the ocean, consumed with an enigmatic changeling…

Kaia Luna may have traded in science for being a chef, but she won’t hide the facts of Bo’s condition from him or herself. She’s suffered too much loss in her life to fall prey to the dangerous charm of a human who is a dead man walking. And she carries a devastating secret Bo could never imagine…

But when Kaia is taken by those who mean her deadly harm, all bets are off. Bo will do anything to get her back–even if it means striking a devil’s bargain and giving up his mind to the enemy… 


Warning! Mild spoilers below.




Ocean Light actually picks up where Silver Silence left off. As you may recall, the leader of the Human Alliance, Bowen Knight, was shot through the heart by a sniper in order to protect his sister. While he was on the brink of death, Bowen’s heart was replaced with a mechanical one. Sadly, having his heart replaced doesn’t save him from the ticking time bomb he has in his Brain that will kill him in a couple days. Ironically, the time bomb, actually a chip, was voluntarily inserted into him because Bowen demanded a way to keep the Psy out of the minds of humans. However, its been years since the implantation and the chips have begun to degrade which could lead the deaths of those who have them and Bowen is the first one showing signs. Now Bowen under the care of the BlackSea changelings medical team at their base in order to find a way to save Bowen. Its at the base where Bowen meets changeling Kaia Luna who’s just like Bowen and has reasons to mistrust a specific race (In Kaia’s case: humans). Not to mention, a friend of Kaia becomes the next victims of Sea changeling disappearances but not before giving Kaia proof that the Alliance is behind the disappearances. Nonethless, Bowen and Kaia slowly fall for each other as they search for the one responsible of the disappearances while also racing against time to find a way for Bowen to survive.

Overall, I highly recommend Ocean Light to lovers of this series because Nalini Singh takes fans to another world. Actually, scratch that, she takes us under the sea. We finally get to learn more about water shifters who are a very interesting and different from the other changelings we have met.  Another thing I love about this installment is Nalini Singh shows us the hardships of creating a world where everyone is united especially if people have be done harm by another race. However, its not impossible because Bowen and Kaia both managed to get their HEA after getting through their past, beliefs, and mistrusts. Once again I really enjoyed Ocean Light and I look forward to the next installment Nalini Singh has planned.
