There’s something about the new guy at Crossroads High . . .
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, for as long as he’s with 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. . . doomed. Still, the four will enter a dark underworld of intrigue and danger. . . but not everyone will come out alive. . .
I must say, Intertwined wasn't as good as I thought it would be. I'm not saying it was bad, just not like I expected.
If you're a fantasy/ paranormal fanatic, you should read this book. From vampires and werewolves to fairies and witches to so much more, it's got it all. I'ts also go some action, suspense and mystery thrown in there, too. It may be a long book, but it's a pretty fast read. The suspense keeps you into it so you must know what happens next.
I think the main reason I didn't like this book as much as I thought was because of the romance. I was expecting a lot more out of it. Neither of the relationships were very good, I thought. They both moved too fast and weren't very real. When I first looked at this book, I was expecting most of it to be about the romance, but as it was, it's just not a very big part of this book.
Even through this, though, it was still very good. The writing was good and the plot harly ever got slow.
