PNR Audio Review: Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh

Audiobook, Unabridged

Go deeper into the world of the Psy and the changelings, where a gifted woman sees passion in her future-a passion that is absolutely forbidden by her kind...

Used to cold silence, Faith NightStar is suddenly being tormented by dark visions of blood and murder. A bad sign for anyone, but worse for Faith, an F-Psy with the highly sought after ability to predict the future. Then the visions show her something even more dangerous-aching need...exquisite pleasure. But so powerful is her sight, so fragile the state of her mind, that the very emotions she yearns to embrace could be the end of her.

Changeling Vaughn D'Angelo can take either man or jaguar form, but it is his animal side that is overwhelmingly drawn to Faith. The jaguar's instinct is to claim this woman it finds so utterly fascinating and the man has no argument. But while Vaughn craves sensation and hungers to pleasure Faith in every way, desire is a danger that could snap the last threads of her sanity. And there are Psy who need Faith's sight for their own purposes. They must keep her silenced-and keep her from Vaughn...


I don't know what difference, if any was, about the production of this audio verse the first book on audio but the narrator did a much better job with the male voices this time around; helping me enjoy the listen more.

While the narration was MUCH better this time, the story level was about the same in Visions of Heat as it was in Slave to Sensation. By that I mean, I enjoy the concept of the Psy-Changeling world but the main characters that have been introduced so far are just lacking something. There are some secondary characters I am more interested in, so I can’t wait to get to their respective books.

I liked the couple well enough but I wanted more. Faith was a little more damsel in need than Sasha was in the first book but that’s only be she lived a more sheltered life. The Psy keeps their F-Psy “locked” away from the rest of the world because they are more imbalanced mentally and emotionally. A high percentage of them go crazy by the time they hit their 50s. Also the F-Psy makes tons of money for the Psy world with their predictions so they are seen as property.

Vaughan is your average good guy, dark alpha that has a hard time letting people get too close to him. Yes, he is sexy but I’ve seen this character type too many times to be really impressed with him as a lead.

I don’t know if it’s truly that I’m not loving this series or if it’s just that I’m having a PNR burn out. I do plan to continue this series but I’m going to take a little break and come back and maybe have a fresh ear when I listen to the next audio.

  1. Well, I wanted to see if it blew you away so I could move it up the list, but it seems that's not gonna be the case.

    1. To be fair, nothing has really blown me away lately. I'm kind of in a reading/listening funk at the moment. ;)
