Intertwined


Author--> Gena Showalter

Review--> 4/5

Release Date--> September 1st, 2009

Product Description from Amazon.ca

Most sixteen-year-olds have friends. Aden Stone has four human souls living inside him:

One can time-travel.

One can raise the dead.

One can tell the future.

And one can possess another human.

With no other family and a life spent in and out of institutions, Aden and the souls have become friends. But now they're causing him all kinds of trouble. Like, he'll blink and suddenly he's a younger Aden, reliving the past. One wrong move, and he'll change the future. Or he'll walk past a total stranger and know how and when she's going to die.

He's so over it. All he wants is peace.

And then he meets a girl who quiets the voices. Well, as long as he's near her. Why? Mary Ann Gray is his total opposite. He's a loner; she has friends. He doesn't care what anyone thinks; she tries to make everyone happy. And while he attracts the paranormal, she repels it. For her sake, he should stay away. But it's too late....

Somehow, they share an inexplicable bond of friendship. A bond about to be tested by a werewolf shape-shifter who wants Mary Ann for his own, and a vampire princess Aden can't resist.

Two romances, both forbidden. Still, the four will enter a dark underworld of intrigue and danger but not everyone will come out alive....

Review;

Intertwined is a great read. It’s a supernatural romance but one unlike I have read before. Intertwined is a multi narrative book, switching between the narratives of Mary and Aden. Although I usually get annoyed with books that switch narratives, I find I can’t get as “into” the book when authors do this, with Intertwined this wasn’t the case though.

Through Aiden’s eyes readers get to experience the life of someone who has four souls living in his head, you get to see him meet a mysterious “girl”, and you also get to watch him meet Mary. Through Mary’s eyes you get to see how she’s not as simple as she thinks she is, you get to see her meet a wolf, and through her eyes you learn that being ordinary isn’t so simple after all.

I really enjoyed Gena Showalter’s Intertwined. I thought that the plot was interesting; at times a little busy but it definitely kept me absorbed in the book. For two days when I wasn’t reading this book, I was counting the minutes when I could. It may have cut into my studying for Aegean Archaeology, but I thought it was wroth it. I will eagerly be awaiting the next book in this series, Unraveled.
