The storylines in the Psy-Changeling world just keep getting more and more complex. The fact that they do is not only a testimony to Singh’s ability to expand on her universe, whilst maintaining unique romance stories. After reading eleven books in the same series, all with their own, unique romantic partners, I was expecting to begin to feel same same about the storylines. It is hard to have a series with such a common thread have enough variety to keep one enthralled. Especially when it is not focused on one, single character’s development.

The idea of Riaz and Adria was a unique one in that Riaz was already mated, so it was difficult to see how these two could have a successful romance. However, as I just mentioned, Singh managed to find a new spin on an old theme and tell it in a way that shocked and surprised me. The choices that both characters made weren’t exactly what I envisaged, and the journey was an indescribably suspenseful one.

Sienna and Hawke are frequently visited in Tangle of Need, their roles as the alpha pair of one of the most powerful changeling groups in the world necessitating such an inclusion. However, the transition throughout the series from a tale focused on one couple with the appearance of others, to a story of full-blown war with a constantly present cast of characters has been a slow and steady one. This change in the theme and format of the stories helps to highlight the greater theme of the series, and make sure that readers fall in love with Singh’s Psy-Changeling novels again and again and again.
