Tangle of Need

Paranormal Romance – Urban Fantasy – Shapeshifter’s



Discover the exhilarating risks of passion in the breathtaking new Psy-Changeling novel by Nalini Singh, the New York Timesbestselling “alpha author of paranormal romance” (Booklist)…

Adria, wolf changeling and resilient soldier, has made a break with the past—one as unpredictable in love as it was in war. Now comes a new territory, and a devastating new complication: Riaz, a SnowDancer lieutenant already sworn to a desperate woman who belongs to another.

For Riaz, the primal attraction he feels for Adria is a staggering betrayal. For Adria, his dangerous lone-wolf appeal is beyond sexual. It consumes her. It terrifies her. It threatens to undermine everything she has built of her new life. But fighting their wild compulsion toward one another proves a losing battle.

Their coming together is an inferno…and a melding of two wounded souls who promise each other no commitment, no ties, no bonds. Only pleasure. Too late, they realize that they have more to lose than they ever imagined. Drawn into a cataclysmic Psy war that may alter the fate of the world itself, they must make a decision that might just break them both.

– 3 Tangle of Need Stars –

Tangle of Need is book eleven in Nalini Singh Psy-Changeling series. I really do enjoy this series with it’s fantastically interesting characters, factions and magnificent world building. That being said Tangle of Need feel below par for me in that it felt more like a filler book then about the actual couple Adria and Riaz. I still enjoyed and devoured the book, but was not Wowed.

I loved a lot about this book, but most of it felt like it was filler material and that we where learning more about other couples then the actual couple for this book Adria and Riaz. I had a hard time getting into Adria and Riaz. There relationship starts off rocky (which I have no problem with), but they never really did it for me. I did enjoy and think it was sweet how Riaz gave gift’s to attempt to get Adria to stay. 

I have to say I love seeing past mated couples and learning what is happening with them. We find out that someone is pregnant. Oh that was fun to learn. I loved seeing into Hawke and Sienna’s relationship. Seeing this couple together and growing stronger, plus talking about the future was so heartwarming. I also loved learning about Patient A aka Alice. I can’t wait to see what happens to our little scientist that has been in a coma for a very long time. 

Ms. Singh does such a wonderful job bring new things to life and keeping the plot of this series going. The new plot development in the Psy net is very interesting. Things are changing in the net mind and new and darker forces are coming into play. We also see more alliances forming and a civil war amongst the Psy.

Tangle of Need was a good read. I love reading about the SnowDancer’s and past characters. I’m intrigued to see what will happen in the next book.

Borrowed from library!
