Control. Precision. Family. These are the principles that drive Silver Mercant. At a time when the fledgling Trinity Accord seeks to unite a divided world, with Silver playing a crucial role as director of a worldwide emergency response network, wildness and chaos are the last things she needs in her life. But that's exactly what Valentin Nikolaev, alpha of the StoneWater bears, brings with him.

Valentin has never met a more fascinating woman. Though Silver is ruled by Silence--her mind clear of all emotion--Valentin senses a whisper of fire around her. That's what keeps him climbing apartment buildings to be near her. But when a shadow assassin almost succeeds in poisoning Silver, the stakes become deadly serious...and Silver finds herself in the heart of a powerful bear clan.

Her would-be assassin has no idea what their poison has unleashed...




Review
Silver is one of the few who needs silence to survive. Valentin (Mischa) is a bear determined to coax Silver into breaking silence. Can Silver chose another way not that she is a woman grown or will silence be all that allows her to survive?
Silver Silence by Nalini Singh is the latest story in her psi world but first in the Trinity series. I want a Mischa!! He has a big heart, strong will, sense of fun and could kill you dead with one strike. Silver isn’t quite sure what to do with the bear shifter Alpha who is determined to uncover the fire within. I loved his sense of playfulness not only with Silver but also with his den. Ms. Singh did not make Mischa a caricature of a Russian although I will admit a few stereotypes slipped in. Mischa was a fully developed male with deep feelings and a strength of honor that was bone deep. And while Silver wasn’t used to anyone like Mischa, I loved that she did not allow herself to be seen as week; even when Mischa sees her at less than her best. I adored Silver and Mischa together. Family is important to them both and a willingness to protect at all costs was deep within both their dna. This story is well written. It is full of joy, pain and love. I can’t wait to see where Ms. Singh will take us as the Psy-Changling world continues to grow and change.
