About the Author

Writing has always been my passion, and my stories have always had a touch of romance to them, even if they were about a superhero with laser eyes. Creating unique characters and giving them happy endings is what I love to do, and I even enjoy the voices in my head.

There’s no other job that could make me happier.

In 2002, I received the call that Silhouette Desire wanted to publish my first book, Desert Warrior, and it was a dream come true. I hope to continue living this dream until I’m old and gray, typing away on my keyboard.

I was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand, where I’ve returned after spending three years living and working in Japan. During my time in Japan, I took advantage of every opportunity to travel around Asia, and I’m always planning my next adventure.

Throughout my life, I’ve worked a variety of jobs, including lawyer, librarian, candy factory worker, bank temp, and English teacher. Some might call it inconsistency, but I see it as fuel for my writing.

Editoral Review

Nalini Singh’s Weapons Training is a riveting action-packed thriller packed with intense fight scenes that will leave you on the edge of your seat. Singh has become a household name in the world of romantic fantasy novels, but her latest release showcases her ability to venture into other genres and excel at it.

The book takes place in a future version of earth where countries are no longer governed by politicians but by powerful corporations who have their armies to engender their interest. The protagonist of the book, Alice, is a member of the Ghost Squad, a team of elite soldiers trained to carry out covert missions to protect the interests of the corporations.

Alice has just lost her partner, and she is assigned a new partner, Max, who she finds out is from a rival corporation. As they carry out their missions, they begin to uncover hidden truths that shake the foundations of the world they thought they knew.

Singh’s writing is fluid and descriptive, allowing readers to immerse themselves in the world she has created fully. The pace of the book is exhilarating, and every chapter adds to the mounting tension that leads to a satisfying conclusion.

The characters are well developed, and we watch them grow as they question the morality of the world they live in. The book tackles themes of loyalty, trust, and corruption, which are all relevant to society today.

Singh draws parallels between her fictional world and what is happening in reality, which makes the book all the more enjoyable. Singh doesn’t shy away from addressing tough questions, and she handles them with a deft hand, leaving readers pondering long after they have finished the book.

Overall, Weapons Training is another fantastic addition to Nalini Singh’s already impressive catalog, and it shows her versatility as a writer. The book is a must-read for fans of action-packed thrillers and anyone looking for a book with an underlying message that challenges the status quo.

With its well-crafted plot and excellent character development, Weapons Training is a book that will stay with you long after you turn the final page. The Washington Post highly recommends this book and awards it a rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars.
