A Conversation” by Nalini Singh

A short story that’s 4.1 in the Psy-Changeling paranormal romance series based in San Francisco and revolving around a silent war between the Psy and Changelings. The focus in “A Conversation” is about the Rats’ alliance with DarkRiver.

This short story is a freebie offered on Nalini Singh’s website.

My Take

This was an intriguing look into a pack of shapeshifting rats who have entered into an alliance with DarkRiver. While there have been a few references in the series about the rats, there hasn’t been anything with any depth. With “A Conversation”, Singh gives us this short, a very short, look into how the rats have benefited from this alliance. And how unexpectedly beneficial it’s turned out to be.

It’s amazing how much information Singh has provided about the rats in this short.

The Story

A casual conversation between alpha and his right-hand exposes their thoughts and surprise.

The Characters

Teijan leads the Rats. Zane is now his right-hand man. Aneca is Zane’s daughter. Rissa is Zane’s mate.

DarkRiver is the cat pride in the area.

The Title

The title is exactly what this is, “A Conversation”.
