"Gwen Jane's modulated breathing didn't alter, her expression didn't change but her words held her heart. If you ever feel unsafe, we'll come. Day or night, snow or rain, we'll find you."
From Shield of Winter (Psy-Changeling #13) by Nalini Singh. The book was released on June 3rd and it went to the top of my TBR pile. Finished it yesterday and loved it. Like the others in the series it features two people who find each other in spite of their differences. Both Ivy and Vasic are psy but with very different training and backgrounds, Ivy an empath and Vasic an Arrow. Together they have to work to save the psy from destruction since Silence has been broken and the psy web is killing people.
From Goodreads - Assassin. Soldier. Arrow. That is who Vasic is, who he will always be. His soul drenched in blood, his conscience heavy with the weight of all he’s done, he exists in the shadows, far from the hope his people can almost touch—if only they do not first drown in the murderous insanity of a lethal contagion. To stop the wave of death, Vasic must complete the simplest and most difficult mission of his life.
For if the Psy race is to survive, the empaths must wake…
Having rebuilt her life after medical “treatment” that violated her mind and sought to stifle her abilities, Ivy should have run from the black-clad Arrow with eyes of winter frost. But Ivy Jane has never done what she should. Now, she'll fight for her people, and for this Arrow who stands as her living shield, yet believes he is beyond redemption. But as the world turns to screaming crimson, even Ivy’s fierce will may not be enough to save Vasic from the cold darkness…
