From the New York Times bestselling author of Shards of Hope, Shield of Winter, and Heart of Obsidian Discover the exhilarating risks of passion in this breathtaking Psy-Changeling novel...
Adria, wolf changeling and resilient soldier, has made a break with her past—to face a devastating new challenge: Riaz, a SnowDancer lieutenant already sworn to another. For Riaz, the primal attraction he feels for Adria is a staggering betrayal. For Adria, his lone-wolf appeal is beyond sexual. It consumes her. It terrifies her. It threatens to undermines everything she has built of her new life. But fighting their wild compulsion is 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.

Während alle anderen bisherigen Hauptpersonen schon in den vorherigen Büchern eingeführt und vorgestellt wurden waren Riaz und Adria nur Randpersonen. Aus diesen beiden einen Band zu schreiben, der die Geschichte optimal fortführt und zu denen der Leser eine genauso innige Beziehung aufbaut wie zu ihren anderen Characktere erschien mir schwierig. Doch die Story um Adria und Riaz ist perfekt. Beide gehen vorbelastet in diese Beziehung doch die Hoffnung, das Vertrauen und die Kraft, die sie in diese Beziehung investieren, lässt den Leser mit ganzem Herzen auf ein Happy End hoffen. Ein weiterer Höhepunkt dieses Buches wird durch die übergreifenden Handlungsstränge rund um die Pfeilgardisten und das Ratsmitglied Kaleb erreicht. Und wer das Ende gelesen hat kann das nächste Buch gar nicht mehr erwarten. Also viel Spaß mit einem ganz und gar außergewöhnlichen Paar.
Nalini Singh did it again!!

- I really didn't like Adria. She seemed overbearing, cold and bitter and even though I tried to tell myself that being in a BAD relationship could do that to you I just couldn't shake my feelings of dislike towards her.
- I was completely convinced that the fact that Riaz had already found his mate, but couldn't be with her would ruin the love story in "Tangle-of-Need". There are just some things that absolutely don't work for me in romance books and a man who wants another woman while having a relationship (or even just sex) with someone else is one of them.
- There was just no way any story could measure up to the standard Nalini Singh set for herself after writing a book as perfect as "Kiss-of-Snow". It's just not possible.
These were my thoughts AFTER I finished "Tangle-of-Need":
Nalini Singh is a genius and I'll never ever doubt her again!
I can't even describe how much I loved this book. It did definitely measure up to "Kiss-of-Snow". I was so convinced that the mass of prior bad experiences that Riaz and Adria dragged into their relationship would make it impossible for me to enjoy their story. But while there were some painful moments, their individual and shared developments were utterly satisfying and heart-warming. Unbelievable but true, this was a truly happy story. I found myself smiling throughout this whole book and at the end I almost cried some happy tears. But since I'm made of harder stuff than that I didn't. I just had something in my eye.
Riaz is just as ferally adorable as all her other heroes and even though I had my reservations about Adria I couldn't hold on to them for more than 20 pages. She's such a strong and affectionate person despite the things she has gone through. I respected her for her courage and was amazed by the way she handled Riaz's dominant and instinctive antics.
What made me almost as happy was the fact that we got to read a lot about the Arrows Aden and Vasic, as well as Kaleb. For the first time I had a feeling that I actually got a glimpse at the person behind the icy exterior of the teleporter, while Kaleb remains as big a mystery as he was before and after reading the last chapter of the book I simply can't wait for his book.
Other than that I was delighted that Nalini Singh gave all of the Snow Dancers, as well as some of the Dark River cats some page time in "Tangle-of-Need". Especially Hawke and Sienna have been featured generously and I'm happy to announce that they are just as great as the were in "Kiss-of-Snow". Prepare yourself for some delicious scenes.
If you haven't already ordered the book you should do it now because this is a story that you just don't want to miss!
