From the Inside Flap
Discover the exhilarating risks of passion in the breathtaking new Psy-Changeling novel by Nalini Singh
Adria, wolf changeling and resilient soldier, has made a break with the past. Now comes a new territory, and a devastating new complication: Riaz, a SnowDancer lieutenant already sworn to someone else.
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 realise 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.--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Having both returned to the SnowDancer den to lick their wounds, the last thing they want is to get involved with each other. Except the attraction between them is so strong, and all wolves need to touch...
The Psy-Changeling series is back for its eleventh instalment, continuing the recent focus on the wolves. Riaz is a gorgeous lone wolf, charming, smart and dominant, but best known for going his own way. Adria is a dominant female with strong nurturing instincts, but is emotionally battered and heart-worn. Though they frequently snap and snarl at each other, there's no denying their chemistry - or their ability to heal each other. Whatever else is going on with their hearts, they make a dynamic pair.
But this story isn't just about them. There's a lot of Hawke and Sienna scenes as we see how they're coping after the events of Kiss of Snow, while the intriguing Psy Councillor, Kaleb, also gets a fair chunk of story as his mysterious search draws towards its end. We also see more of the Arrows, Aden and Vasic, as they try to deal with the deepening fractures in the Psynet. And those are just the main side plots - there are plenty more appearances from old characters, but the Riley and Mercy scenes are my favourites.Read more ›
On top of that, the whole 'mating bond' concept (i.e causes, reason, ect) seemed badly developed and just a way to justify the character's plot line (Riaz feels bad for liking Adria etc...). It just didn't seem plausible or believable (and yes, I am aware this is under the category 'fiction'.
Hawke and Sienna had more screen time (pardon the expression) than the main couple, and it would have been okay if the book had been advertised as their second book or something along those lines.....but it was not...
All in all, I was disappointed; this book is definitely not on the same level as the first books.
Still....I'll be reading the next one!
For me, Adria and Riaz were never a particularly interesting set of characters, and as a couple they failed to set the pages on fire. They were pretty much delegated to being side characters, especially in the first half of the book, and when we finally do see more of them, it is too late. The main problem with Adria and Riaz is not the comparatively small number of pages, but the fact that they were an uninteresting and unengaging couple and their plot was CONSISTENTLY the least interesting part of the book and it felt like their story was only vaguely connected with the important plot developments taking place. Their story felt weak and disjointed from everything else, and convinced me that this book is nothing more than filler.
Frankly, Adria and Riaz were not bad as a couple or as individual characters, albeit everything they do we have seen before and better in previous installments of the series, but their story would have been better told as a novella or short story. There simply isn't enough in Adria and Riaz's story to sustain the approximately 200 pages they were allotted in Tangle of Need.
A part of the issue with Adria and Riaz s that they are dull, unengaging and unimaginative. We've seen everything before and nothing new or interesting is added to the mix. Riaz is a boring, one-dimensional character, and can pretty much be described as a lesser copy of Hawke (with the exact same issues).Read more ›
I enjoyed ToN. In my opinion it was much better than KoS. I enjoyed everything about it EXCEPT the supposedly main romance between Riaz & Adria. I confess that I started to skim/skip their bits of the story. I enjoyed Hawk & Sienna (though it did start to get a bit cloying) in this book way more than in KOS.
As for the fiasco about the MATING BOND, I've decided to ignore that bit as well. I mean, one of the main reasons that I so loved this series and bought the first 9 books is because of the mating bond. Just like there's been no mention of Tally (Tasmin) again I'm hoping that this foolishness will not be mentioned in future books. It will be forgot.
I'm hoping that we'll see some of the Forgotten Psy in future books.
As for Sienna, reading Kiss of Snow I thought she was 21. But now having read Tangle of Need it kinda says on page 199 that she's lived for 19 years - a bit too much of an age difference for me between Sienna and Hawk.
All in all, not much romance but I loved seeing the other 'cast' members. I also 'heart' Judd. I liked it enough that I MAY buy the paperback edition when it comes out (maybe).
