Review: TANGLE OF NEED

Tangle Of Need by Nalini Singh
Book 11 of the Psy-Changeling series
Narrated by Angela Dawe.
Genre: adult urban fantasy
Format: hardback & audiobook

About Tangle Of Need:
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.

My Thoughts:
This is the book which brought my "following" of this series to a halt. It took me several years to finish reading this book even with the convenience of the audiobook. I guess it gotta happen sometime, to any great series or good author. Hopefully, Nalini Singh would have gotten her grove back by the next book...

This is the first Angela Dawe book that I've listened to. She reads with a cadence that is almost like a singsong that I am not fond of at all. However after a while, as I get sucked into the story, the singsong fades into the background. However one has to listen carefully because she does not pause between scenes. She reads on. So if you were not paying full attention, you get confused about the story line changing without notice. So not good in an audiobook bought for the convenience of an audiobook... I often listen to audiobook while driving to work and home. So i don’t really pay 100% attention to the audiobook as I am paying more attention to the road. In other words, not the kind of audiobook I can play while driving. Brings the rating of this book down to the boots!
