For once, sixteen-year-old Aden Stone has everything he’s ever wanted:

A home.


The girl of his dreams.

Too bad he’s going to die…

Since coming to Crossroads, Oklahoma, former outcast Aden Stone has been living the good life.  Never mind that one of his best friends is a werewolf, his girlfriend is a vampire princess who hungers for his blood, and he’s supposed to be crowned Vampire King – while still a human!  Well, kind of.

With four – oops, three now -- human souls living inside his head, Aden has always been “different” himself.  These souls can time travel, raise the dead, possess another’s mind, and, his least favorite these days, tell the future.

The forecast for Aden?  A knife through the heart.

Because a war is brewing between the creatures of the dark, and Aden is somehow at the center of it all.  But he isn’t about to lie down and accept his destiny without a fight.  Not when his new friends have his back, not when Victoria has risked her own future to be with him, and not when he has a reason to live for the first time in his life... 

Review: This is the continuation of Aden's story, which began in Intertwined. He's not the only one with new troubles and big secrets. Unfortunately, not all of the changes will bring happiness to those involved. Sometimes you can't catch a break...

Aden's a uncrowned vampire king with a vision of his own death, Victoria's being challenged for Aden, Riley and Mary Ann are fighting within themselves and with each other. The vampires, witches, and fairies are slavering for Aden's blood. Now he needs all the help he can get to prevent a war. Will he be able to do enough and will it be in time to save his friends?

I did enjoy the story and the writing was excellent. Ms. Showalter is a wonderful writer and I appreciated the detail and intricacies of the plot lines very much. I'm not sure how many books will be in this series, but I do look forward to the next installment, since I'm now hooked on the story. I think, perhaps, that this book creates a whole lot more questions than it answers. Enticing, yet frustrating!

The Intertwined Series: Intertwined (1), Unraveled (2), Twisted (3) 


  1. Great review! I was a little on the fence about Intertwined because I found it super confusing...I like the sound of this though :)

  2. Great review --it was an okay book for me and moved the story along but I'm on the fence about the next book. I only care about riley/mary ann.

  3. This series seems to have gotten a lot more complicated...LOL. I enjoyed Intertwined, but for some reason I'm hesitant to put this on the TBR. Don't know what that is.
