Tangled Roots is a standalone novel--you don't have to read any of the Beyond the Eyes books first.
After eighteen-year-old Carrie Jacobson discovers she was a witch in a previous life, she seeks to reawaken that part of her soul. With the help of an eccentric enchantress and a boy who is more than he seems, Carrie succeeds and is spellbound by the memories of her life in Europe during the 1600s as a powerful witch named Isadora. Carrie reverts to her bewitching, more volatile form and sets out to break a curse she cast long ago on her coven.
Carrie’s boyfriend Tree cannot help feeling uneasy about the changes he sees in the woman he loves. When Carrie’s past clashes with the present and dark magic intoxicates her once again, Tree must take drastic matters into his own hands and attempt to save Carrie from herself.
With Tree’s help, will Carrie be able to resist the allure of her new powers? Or will she plunge into the deep end and give into them?

So, it says at the beginning of the book that this is a companion book to the Beyond the Eyes trilogy… but that it can be read as a standalone. It CAN be read as a standalone… and I DID read it without having read the trilogy… but I would NOT recommend doing that. There were characters referred to that were obviously important to the trilogy… and they were mentioned repeatedly… but they were traveling and not in this novel. There were also characters in this novel that had past experiences somewhat briefly mentioned with minimal explanation… but they played important parts in this novel. So while I was able to figure it all out… it would have been MUCH more enjoyable had I read the trilogy. All of that said… I can say I really enjoyed the author’s writing style. Not everyone writes a story from multiple character perspectives well… but I felt like Rebekkah Ford did an exceptional job. Each chapter would start with the character’s name (mainly Carrie and Tree/Jack) and lead flow through the story that way. As I said… I didn’t read the trilogy… but if the author’s writing is consistently done in the style and quality used in Tangled Roots… I would feel comfortable recommending the trilogy followed by this companion book. (Oh… and I LOVED Rex. I wish there had been more Rex.)
Tangled Roots is fabulous, and here’s why: the details and background information is one-hundred percent accurate; the writing and characters are vivid and alive; and the story is tight and interesting. This novel is a sub-story of some characters in Beyond the Eyes, but also stands alone quite nicely. Carrie always feels like an outsider, she doesn’t have a special power like her friends and boyfriend. After having a bout in the hospital with a serious condition, she is told she’s a witch. As if that’s not bad enough to deal with, her life is about to become a nightmare; and she likes it. Demons, witches, and light walkers, all a part of Carrie’s life; how will it end? I highly recommend Tangled Roots to all ages; the storyline will be of interest to all ages. I was given an ARC in return for an honest review.
Tangled Roots This book is the best yet. It is a stand alone but alsp companion to the Beyond the Eyes Trilogy , it carries the story further with familiar characters, Tree and Carrie . They were in the first 3 books, but now they have a mission that fate has them being the only ones that are able to carry out . Think if you were used to strange happening and the possibility of a different realms out there and that the world has mysteries and evil that most of us know nothing about . How would you handle it if you had to intervene , to save yourself and others In this book Carrie is trying to unite with the past and a witch that is really trying to cause havoc. Carrie is a witch in her own right. Not to give the whole book away but Tree who loves Carrie must watch as she is taken over. Carrie is doing what she must. All this makes for a wild ride. Can Carrie prevail and can Tree save Carrie ???? I loved this book and the author is great in her story telling, you feel the pain, love and suspense
