Constance started to keen as the air around us began to thrash and twist, the caustic scent of ozone burning my nose. As I watched, her dark gold hair began to lift and kink into knots.

“I’m here. It’ll be okay.” It was the last thing I said before my best friend’s little sister went supernova in the second-floor girls’ bathroom, taking me with her.

A month ago, Mo Fitzgeral...more

Another fantastic series that picks up with a start. Poor Mo. She is being passed around, lied too, manipulated, by all the people who are supposedly "looking out for her." I don't think I have shook my head so much as I read this book. But YAY, for a strong heroine.

The plot of this book is filled with many twist and turn. Mo is dealing with the after affects of what happen in the first book as well as dealing with more family problems. I really like that in this book, the reader gets to see mor...more

FINALLY! A book with a freaking love triangle that’s actually a love triangle. Gah! I’m just so excited that this book was so different. Often I find myself picking out whom the main character will end up with. I think if the heroine has some kind of feeling for two male characters the reader should feel the same way. It seems pointless if the reader knows whom she’ll pick at the end. Why add a guy the heroine or the reader won’t even consider and complicate the plot? Fortunately, Tangled is not...more

Meine Gedanken zum Buch:
Bei dem zweiten Teil der Torn Trilogie ist es für mich nicht leicht eine Rezension zu schreiben. Zu einem habe ich das Buch wieder total schnell, innerhalb von zwei Tagen, gelesen und wollte auch immer wieder wissen, wie es weitergeht. Aber was ich herausgefunden habe und was sich abgespielt hat im Teil ‚Die Wächterin‘, hat mir nicht immer gefallen oder war zum Teil nicht nach meinem Geschmack.

Dieses Mal dreht sich das Buch weniger um die übersinnlichen Aspekte und es kom...more

Mo (Mouse) Fitzgerald is still adjusting to life without her best friend Verity and the knowledge learned from the events in Torn, including her new role in a supernatural world she never knew existed. As if that wasn’t enough…Mo has her own personal family drama going on that has nothing to do with Supernaturals and everything to do with organized crime and family secrets.

TANGLED picks up shortly after the end of TORN. Mo managed to help stabilize things f...more

I adored Erica O’Rourke’s first book, TORN, and I won’t lie: I had very high hopes when I went into TANGLED.

Well, I can honestly say that my hopes were met and then some. This sequel takes the twisted, complex plot from book 1 to a whole new level.

Okay, first off: Mo. I adore her–I adore that she’s not The Chosen One, but only the The Chosen One’s BFF. I adore that she goes from being a character to whom stuff happens to a character who makes stuff happen. Her strength–and sometimes misguided ch...more

4.5 stars!

Tangled by Erica O’Rourke is an amazing continuation of Torn, the first in this brilliant series, one that everybody needs to read! If you love magic and the mafia, you’ll love this trilogy.

Wow. Tangled was awesome. The stakes in this book are higher than ever (there’s a good chance Mo won’t make it out alive! YIKES!) and the romance is sizzling between Colin and Mo. Okay, yeah, I’m a Colin girl. Luc is okay, but COLIN. COLIN. HE’S COLIN. How can you NOT like him...more

Tangled is filled with deception. Mo lives the life of a normal teen while also living a secret magical life. She creates a web of lies as she keeps her magical life a secret from those around her. Even Mo’s normal life isn’t really so normal after all. Her uncle is a mobster and her father is finally being released from prison after many years. Mo’s life hasn’t been easy and she is guarded with her heart. I really like that her family became a part of the story.

What’s this about magic? Well, th...more

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy

Like TORN before it, TANGLED is another perfectly titled book. That one word says it all about Mo and her increasingly complex life. Her life, her heart, her choices are all hopelessly tangled together. Her uncle is the Godfather of Chicago and her dad has been in prison most of her life. She wasn’t supposed to fall for her mob appointed body guard, but then again, she wasn’t supposed to end up as a magical savior—or destroyer depending on who you ask—e...more

I guess, one of the things that I dislike most about this book is the characters. Which is pretty damning.

Between Mo who keeps switching back and forth between Luc and Colin, and everybody else who are dang unlikable, I just couldn't stop gritting my teeth in frustration.

I mean, all of them are flawed and I'm okay with that but none of them are likable except for Lena, Luc and Colin and Mo. The others, I just want to pound their head in. I mean, there's Jill who is pretty much Queen Bitch, Const...more

Even though I am an adult I find that I really enjoy reading the young adult genre. And it is books like TANGLED that keep me simply entranced. I found this book to be an absolute page turner.

Mo is struggling to be a normal teenager, to get good grades so that she can escape her Mob family by going to college in New York and trying to decide between two men. She is still struggling from losing her best friend a month ago but is making a new one. Now if only the magic and her Uncle Billy with the...more

Tangled by Erica O’Rourke
YA Paranormal Romance- Jan. 31st, 2012
4 stars

Tangled is the second in the YA paranormal series about witches called ARCs.

In the last book Torn, Mo Fitzgerald discovered that her best friend, Verity was an ARC. However, she was unable to save Verity from her evil aunt. Depressed and feared, Mo is now an outcast at her high school. Verity’s younger sister, Constance hates her but is now coming into her ARC powers and is distrustful of Mo and does not believe she is gainin...more

I just...

I can't...

I just can't do this anymore.

No, really. I was preparing to write this really outraged, snarky review about Mo turning into this bratty, slutty "KISS ME KISS ME KISS ME - now go away until I say so" heroine that just about every YA novel has because that's FEMININE SEXUAL FREEDOM TAKING CONTROL HECK YEAH or some crap like that, but then I realized that I had already written a very nice rant about love triangles for a different book. Pretty recently too. And one before that......more
Truly Bookish
All Mo wants to do is get away from the magic and the mob but they just keep pulling her back in. Tangled picks up about a month after where Torn, the first book in the series, ended. Torn was all about avenging the death of Verity, Mo’s best friend, but Mo had to make sacrifices to get justice. Having done what she needed to do, Mo just wants her normal, invisible life back but no one will let her have it ever again.

The series is partially set in Chicago where Mo’s uncle is connected to the mo...more

After the loss of her best friend to magic, Mo feels it is her obligation to make sure that Verity’s younger sister, Constance, is watched over. When the powers that be realize that the magic is broken, and Constance gets her magical powers early, the Quartoren call upon Mo to fix the magic again. Mo in return asks that someone train Constance so that the girl is able to control herself. It is a big risk Mo takes, yet she realizes what her duties are as the Vessel.

In between dealing with the Qu...more

The second book in the Torn trilogy finds Mo settling back into her old life - her life before magic, prophecies, darklings (shadowy, evil magical creatures) and the mysterious Luc. Mo is doing her best to pick up the pieces of her life but it's not long before she's pulled back into Luc's world. Mo agrees to a Covenant with the heads of the Arcs (magic-users) in exchange for her dead best friend's younger sister - Constance recieving help and training after she begins to manifest uncon...more

n the second book of the Torn trilogy, Mo Fitzgerald is trying to get back to whatever normal life she can have. But it sure isn’t easy. Constance, Verity’s little sister, has just started developing her magic skills, but has no idea that it's even happening, so of course, cannot control what it does to herself and those around her. Mo has no choice but to call on Luc to come to the rescue. When he in turn asks for her help, she feels she cannot say no because she wants to help Constance and thi...more

Constance started to keen as the air around us began to thrash and twist, the caustic scent of ozone burning my nose. As I watched, her dark gold hair began to lift and kick into knots. “I’m here. It’ll be okay.” It was the last thing I said before my best friend’s little sister went supernova in the second-floor girls’ bathroom, taking me with her.

This was such a shock for me, because I never expected it to be much better than the first book! While "Torn" was an okay book, "Tangled" was definitely great! I don't know what exactly made me love it, but I just did. The characters were amazing, and I loved the love triangle! The story almost never got boring, and everything was just fun! Mo, the main protagonist, was a determined and strong character! I especially loved how she didn't just immediately fall for the "magic" guy, but fell in lov...more

Eh...this was kind of dissapointing, compared to the first book. Torn was awesome. I loved every page of it. I find it a very unique type of book that has magic, but without the witches and warlocks. So I was very excited to read Tangled. I did enjoy it – however, not as much as the first book.

The Good
- Like I said, I like the type of magic shown in this book, and the story just got even more intense.

- I really like the romance here...which is a love triangle. I only like love triangles that ac...more

Dear Erica O'Rourke,

Why do you have to end every book with the world's most epicest ending? I fall so in love with the characters and their story, then I make the mistake of not having the next book with me and I sit there with EPIC disappointment.

Basically, Tangled was everything I was hoping for and I was SO excited about it. Once I started, I couldn't put it down, which became REALLY problematic when I had to do things like take an exam or tutor or ya know, go to class. It was even MORE prob...more

Title Thoughts: I love how it fits so well on so many different levels.
Cover Thoughts: I'm not too crazy about this cover. It seems so different from the first.

I must admit that this book didn't suck me in as well as the first. Maybe I'm comparing the two too much, but I can't help it. It took me until about half wave through to get hooked. Part of it could have been that I loved the first one so much and my expectations were through the roof.

Nevertheless, this book still won me over. I love the...more

Readers dive, head first, back into the world of Mo Fitzgerald in Tangled, book 2 of Erica O’Rourke’s Torn Trilogy. The magic isn’t through with Mo just yet, which is unfortunate because the Chicago Mob isn’t finished with her either.
Tangled is high on drama as Mo is forced to make impossible decisions. She’s trying to keep her family and new friends safe and out of the way of the magic and the Mob. Life since she took her place as the Vessel in an Arc prophecy has become more demanding of her t...more

Ever since Verity was murdered and Mo survived Constance has hated her, now it appears she has magic powers and so needs Mo’s help. As Verity’s little sister it makes sense she would be magic, but since neither of their parents have powers, as a matter of fact they are both completely clueless, it is kind of head scratching but necessary for the plot.

In getting her revenge Mo thought she had fixed things, but in the world of magic things are going terribly awry. Luc is back to ask for her help a...more

Mo isn't quite who she used to be. On the outside she still looks like the same girl but on the inside she is growing and becoming so much more than all of that. Even though she thought she had done all she could and has fulfilled what was expected of her she can't just go back to her life. I mean she can't just become who she was when she just isn't that girl any more.

This book left me torn and conflicted in so many ways it is NUTS! Not in a bad way, I really enjoyed this read. Unlike the firs...more

My Thoughts: I remember first seeing Torn and I was hesitant to read it, but once I did I enjoyed it a lot so when I heard there was going to be another book in the series, I was very excited.

In Tangled, we are back with Mo and her crazy life. She’s still divided between Colin and Luc. She’s still battling her uncle's business and her “other” business. Mo has a lot on her hands. She had to stop an evil prophecy and learn just how to deal with real life in the process. Now she’s out to save her...more

I read the first book in this series, Torn, (review here) and was very happy I had the second book on hand to start right away. I was eager to see what was going to happen next with Mo and what the Arcs were going to ask, well demand really, she do now.

We left Mo after she fixed the magic for the Arcs and thought she was out of the magic world for good, yeah right. She is trying to get back to her life before she lost Verity, but she is slowly realizing that her life is never going to be the sa...more

Meine Meinung
Weiter geht es mit Mo, die zwischen der Welt der Mafia und der Welt der Magie gefangen ist. Wie auch schon in “Die Erwählte” zieht sich die Story am Anfang ein bisschen hin. Trotzdem schafft es die Autorin ein gewisses Gefühl für Mo und ihr Leben zu übermitteln. Obwohl Maura (Mo) die Magie im letzten Buch reparieren und sich für den Tod ihrer besten Freundin Verity rächen konnte, hat sich in ihrem Leben nicht sonderlich viel geändert. Noch immer haben die Mafia und ihr Onkel mehr...more

I write books about girls who make their own fate and fall for boys they shouldn't.

I live outside Chicago. I like to travel but I'll never really leave this city.

I prefer cookies to cake (even cupcakes), television to movies, and autumn to all the other seasons.

I like sushi, naps, coffee, and driving stick shift.

I hate fish, emoticons, bridges, and talking about myself.
