What's going to happen in Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling: Trinity series?
First off before we start—this post has spoilers for the Psy-Changeling series through Book 15, Allegiance of Honor—in fact if you haven’t read the Psy-Changeling series it won’t make sense. Don’t let this blog spoil the books for you!
When Nalini Singh made the announcement she’s moving to the next phase of the Psy-Changeling series—saying a soft goodbye to some of the characters—my heart literally stopped, especially since back in June I just talked about falling in love with this series all over again.
If you read series, especially any sequential series with open-ended story arcs, then you know that making a commitment to one is like a leap of faith—trusting that an author won’t let you down by taking the series in too uncharted territory (some is GOOD) or unshipping couples or abandoning the series—leaving some characters’ stories untold. Yes—I know it’s an author’s prerogative to do exactly that, but that doesn’t make the heartbreak any easier. We’ve all been left feeling like charred toast at one time or another.
Luckily, I’m a fast reader and discovered that a soft goodbye isn’t necessarily a final goodbye. Singh clarified that “if they have a natural part to play in a particular storyline in the future, you’ll see them again” and she will be “circling back to some previous characters who haven’t had their stories yet,” which luckily eliminated the need for a 200 joules shock to restart my heart.
