The truth will set you free. Not. At least, not for Arrynna Doe. The only thing the truth will bring Ryne is a straight jacket and a room at the local, state funded institution, again. So she lies to her doctors, to her foster parents, to her best friend. Because, really, who’s going to believe there is a whole world filled with terrifying magickal creatures only she can see- faeries, witches, vampires, and werewolves, even dragons? That’s right, nobody!
Ryne has her routine mastered- pretend you’re normal, lie to everyone you know, ignore supernatural beings. And the routine works, until the day she acquires stalkers. Faerie stalkers.
As Ryne struggles to keep her days normal, she finds herself questioning the tenets’ of her life. Why can she see things that no one else can and why are these creatures suddenly interested in her? Because maybe there is more to it all than she ever dreamed.
Will she discover the truth? Or is she just as crazy as the doctors have always said? Either way, Ryne is facing a crossroads, and pretty soon she’s going to have to make a choice.
LW Tichy’s world in Tangled Web pulls on all the threads of our childhood fairy tales, with beings from the realms of Faerie walking glamored among humans. The character-building is credible, well-geared for the YA genre, and the descriptions are well-done, evocative and colorful without sweeping the reader off their feet in a flood of adjectives. The story provides a light and cheerful read that nonetheless draws on serious themes, from the need of a child to feel she belongs, to the power of trust and friendship. Definitely a worthwhile read with much to offer for YA and fantasy readers alike.
