I have to say it. Tangle of Need is a horrible name for a book, and the cover is equally as bad, although not as bad as the earlier books in the series.
Nalini Singh really knows how to weave her stories together. This book wasn't just about Riaz and Adria, who didn't have much impact on me, but what is going on in the Psy-Changeling world. Singh is setting up for an explosive ending to the series, which I'm sure will shock and amaze all of her fans.
I really wanted to connect with Riaz and Adria, but I just couldn't. Their backgrounds are heart wrenching (especially Riaz's), and I liked them as a couple, but they not on my top list of favorite couples from this series.
I was so happy Hawke and Sienna appeared in this book almost as much as Riaz and Adria. We finally got to see their mating ceremony, and Hawke learning to deal with the fact that Sienna is an independent woman. There's a much awaited pregnancy between another one of my favorite couples in the series, and we learn more about the Arrows and Alice Eldridge. Also, who is the mysterious woman Kaleb has been searching for? I'm sure we'll find out in the next book.
The one mystery that has yet to be solved is who is the Ghost? I have it narrowed down to who I think it is, but I tend to suck at figuring out things like these, so I'm probably way off.
This book was a great addition to the Psy-Changeling world, and I can't wait for book number 12.
