Tangle of Need: Riaz & Adria's Story- Coming June 2012

Post by tabitha on Tue May 31, 2011 10:22 am

From Nalini's Newsletter:

Exclusive Extra: The Next Psy/Changeling Stories
I'm happy to announce that the next Psy/Changeling book will be coming out June 2012 (tentative date).

The book will feature SnowDancer Lieutenant, Riaz, and a fellow SnowDancer you met in Play of Passion. Her name? Adria. Yes, there will be fireworks!

I have a feeling the Arrow, Aden, will play a strong role in this story, as will Councilor Kaleb Krychek. More info to come as I get further into the book.

A chapter-length excerpt will be available in back of Archangel's Blade (September). We'll put it up on the website then, too.

I'm also contracted to write two more Psy/Changeling novellas. I'll likely be working on these next year, so they'll come out the year after. I'll talk a bit more about them once I begin writing the novellas.

Isn't Adria Indigo's Aunt who is unhappily married to a less dominant man (Martin)? & I thought Riaz found his mate whilst he was travelling in Europe but she was married so he left...

I'm not excited about Adria at all! I thought she was such a weak/lame character in PoP: a so called dominant character (as Indigo repeated stated) who apparently put up with emotional abuse for what, 10+ years, with her lover/mate? (Wasn't Adria mated? Got to go reread PoP.) I recall thinking she sounded like a "submissive" instead to just live with the crap her partner dished out for so long.

I don't think she was mated - they were just long term lovers.
Spoiler:
And as we learned in KoS if the mating bond isn't "finalized/accecpted" it appears you can find another mate.
Soooo, I guess we'll see!

We were talking about this on goodreads as well. Yes, Adria is Indigo's Aunt (though only 4 years older or so), and she's been "off aond on" for 10 years with a jerk named Martin. Since Riaz met his mate and she was married, he didn't claim this mate since he said she was happy. Of course....it could have been Adira that he met, and she may have been somewhat happy with Martin at the time, but I don't remember it saying they were married (yeah...I'll have to re-read that as well). But still...there is the possiblilty that Riaz saw Adria as his potential mate. I really don't think he'd have mentioned it to Indigo or anyone since the mating didn't happen, so why make anyone uncomfortable by naming this person?

I do wonder why Adria never showed up in KoS. Unless I missed it somewhere. A lot of SnowDancers came back in for the battle scenes, but I don't remember her being mentioned at all.

I don't think they're mated -

PoP pg.266
“Evie isn’t back yet, but my aunt, Adria, and her lover, Martin, will also be there. They’re flying in from near the Oregon border.”

Ebooks are awesome. I love being able to search for individual words! Smile

Hmm, I don´t think that there´s any possibility for Adria and Martin to be mated, ´cause they´re not - or especially Martin is not - accepting eachothers peronality/ character/ dominance...
I´m not sure if I`m really looking forward for this book. I´m interested in Riaz and his found-my-mate-but-she´s-already-taken story, but Adria is noone I was interested in at all...
Also I´m missing the cats and I would have loved to be introduced to some new character or pack

Still I´m like: Oh boy, is it already spring 2012??

Lol. I think I feel the same as you, cept about the cats. I'm glad we're staying with the wolves a while longer. I love their dynamics. the cats are just meh to me. I like some of them, but on the whole -i'd hang with the wolves. Laughing Laughing

(plus, we've seen a lot more of the cats, right?)

DarkRiver:
Slave to Sensation (Lucas & Sascha, Psy)
Visions of Heat (Vaughn & Faith, Psy)
Mine to Possess (Clay & Tally, Forgotten)
Hostage to Pleasure (Dorian & Ashaya, Psy)
Branded by Fire (Mercy & Riley, SD)

SnowDancer:
Carressed by Ice (Brenna & Judd)
Branded by Fire (Riley & Mercy, SD)
Play of Passion (Indigo & Drew)
Kiss of Snow (Hawke & Sienna)

Other:
Blaze of Memory (Dev, a Forgotten, and Katya, Psy)
Bonds of Justice (Max, human, and Sophia, Psy)

So, actually, we've seen a lot more Psy than anyone else (Sascha, Faith, Ashaya, Katya and Sophia....not counting Judd and Sienna, which I suppose I should, but since at the beginning of the books they're technically in the SnowDancer pack, I wasn't sure if I should include them or not).

Once Riaz & Adria's book comes out, the total number of books will be even between DR & SD, but more wolves will be main characters.

If you count the novellas (there have been 3 of them) I think the balance of stories tips back to the cats. The three novellas:

Beat of Temptation (Nate & Tammy)
Whisper of Sin (Emmet & Ria)
Stroke of Enticement (Zach & Annie)

I think I got those right. The novellas are why it's always felt to me that we've spent more time with the cats than the wolves, also Luc and Sascha's continuing story through pretty much all the books has added to that feeling.

Love the idea of Riaz' book but I don't know if I'm very enthused about Adria. She was only in one scene though but she did come accross as pretty angry and sad and kind of bitter. I generally really like Nalini's h's though so I'm willing to give it a try.

My main hope for the story is that we stay in SnowDancer territory and get to see the continuing stories of Hawke/Sienna and Walker/Lara and Judd/Brenna.

OMG, I got a adrenalin Shot when I read Adria & Riaz. Together? OMG, I don't think I was that freaky even when I heard KoS was announced. And I didn't even read it yet. Two months to go to months to go ... buuhuuu
OMG, Maybe I should run to the next library and back home.
I don't know but Aunt Adria makes her so old. I mean, I always thought Indigo was old, and yes I know, she's not THAT old, but she always acts like that and then imagine her AUNT! Omg, If I hear that Aunt Adria & Riaz ... I'm thinking of an old Lady in her sixties.
I don't even like Adria. Can't even explain why. I love Riaz, but I hate her.

Lol, that was my first thought, too. "Adria?? That´s Indigos AUNT, right?? OMG she´s OLD!!!"
She´s like 34 or so, am I right? Just remember that she´s 4 years older than Indigo and Indigo is 30 years old...

If you've ever been in love with someone but unable to make the relationship work I think you'd be more sympathic towards Adria as she was just trying to stop Indigo making the same mistake in the scene where we met her in PoP.

Of course I know that, it's part of my charme! ;D And it's a mutual feeling, so I think it's okay. We can keep adoring each other.

Aah, Lady Jaye, I didn't mean to. It's just that I don't like them. Well, I don't dislike Sascha and Lucas, but I'd hope for more Brenna and Judd, Walker and Lara, Sienna and Hawke (not because I like them as a couple, but because there a lots of things that have to be told - Like her being a soldier AND his mate et cetera). Lucas and Sascha are.. mhe. Idk, I got some nicknames for the couples.

Sascha and Lucas are the nymphos, Vaughn and Faith the creeps, Tally and Clay are emo, Dorian and Shaya just weird, and so on. I'd rather read some emo-stuff.


Wednesday, 4 p.m.

Dear diary.
Today Clay told me I'm a brat. I was very hurt by that statement, considering I'm a grown woman. He has to treat me like one or I'm not going to talk to him anymore!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After taking a shower I talked to one of his stupid Changeling friends, the blond one with the weird mate. They're always kissing each other and don't even care about how I must feel then. I mean, they should make me feel wanted, but no, they have to kiss each other, just because they just mated, will get a baby, have survived a psycho-attack, did save the world from global warming and killer-rabbits. Ego-Suckheads.
Okay, I have to get out of bed now, because stupid Jon's calling for help. Such a fucker, no one ever thinks about me, but I always have to care for everyone. Life's so unfair.
See you in hell,
Tally.

But no. We get all "Oh, life's so wonderful and I'm an E-Psy, and pregnant (not anymore) and oh, why don't I have sex with my mate a bit and then some? Maybe I should give my child away to have more time to have sex with my mate.. Yes, that's a good idea. Hmm.. who'd want a child? I'm such a nice person, always thinking about what others need - for example my child."

Mheeeeee.


And huh, she's not that much older and I don't think the story'd be soo weird or anything. I just wish there was NEW stuff. Not as in change of location or new characters but as in: THE FORGOTTEN! THE ARROWS!! KALEB!!

LOL Patricia! Too funny!

I love Luc and Sascha but I think their story arc was wrapped up pretty nicely in KoS. I'm guessing that Nalini will be writing more about the wolves, the Arrows and Kaleb in the next 4 books and 2 novellas that are coming out.

I'm going to say right now that I think (I hope I hope) she'll probably end up following Hawke and Sienna's relationship sort of in the same way that she followed Luc and Sascha for these past few books so that we do get to see how they handle things like her being a lower ranking soldier and him being alpha and how they are an alpha couple together.

Ha, but there's Baby (I will keep calling her that, yes, I will!) and she has a connection to the Forgotten. I think they'll keep their part in the upcoming novels and novellas. :/

Well, lol. I like Luc and Sasha too, but I was never truly invested in them. Their story was always meh to me. (in fact, StS was ho-hum to me). I always loved the others, like Indy and Drew, and of course, my baby.

although, I would love to see Hawke's relationship with Naya, lol.

Plus Pat is right, their relationship is a mix of "perfect" and Nympho. not much if you ask me.
