This fantastic read should NOT be read as a stand-alone. At least read Kiss of Snow first. I’m sure it could be but you would be missing out on a lot. With each successive addition to this wonderful series Ms. Singh adds more threads to the intricate tapestry that is the world of the Psy-Changeling. There is so much going on and there are so many characters that if you’ve not read the previous books you will probably feel a little lost. And you should read the other books because they too are terrific.
In Tangle of Need the SnowDancer wolves and DarkRiver cats are dealing with the after effects of the Pure Psy attack that took place in Kiss of Snow. Because of the attack wolves were brought in from all over including Indigo’s young aunt Adria. When Adria and Riaz meet the chemistry is off the charts but neither are in a good place for a relationship. Meanwhile the healers are trying to figure out what to do with Alice Eldridge to bring her out of her coma. Did Henry survive Siennas cold fire? Now that the world knows the Laurens survive what will Ming do? Who is the Ghost. Who will ultimately win the Arrows loyalty? And most importantly how will the upcoming civil war and possible collapse of the Net effect all?
