Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 8 Up—Aden Stone is not your typical 16-year-old. Since birth he has had four souls trapped within him that possess special powers: the ability to time travel, raise the dead, possess a body, and predict the future. As a result, he has spent his whole life in and out of mental institutions diagnosed as a violent schizophrenic. Now able to control the voices in his head, Aden has moved to Crossroads, OK, to live in a halfway house for delinquent boys. His goal in life is to find a means to free these souls and at last be at peace. When he meets Mary Ann Gray, she miraculously acts as a neutralizer, and for the first time in his life, he truly feels normal. The two become fast friends, establishing a sibling-type bond. Little do they realize that when they first met, their connection sent a power surge throughout the world drawing every paranormal creature from fairies to vampires to Crossroads on a quest for power. To complicate matters, Aden becomes romantically involved with a vampire princess and Mary Ann with her werewolf bodyguard. Together the teens must figure out a way to protect themselves, and all of humanity. This fast-paced, action-driven plot has many unexpected twists and turns. Well written, with a unique story line and strong characters, Intertwined is fresh and original at a time when there is an overload of paranormal romances on the market.—Donna Rosenblum, Floral Park Memorial High School, NY

Customer Reviews

The book is very well written with a very good story.
Kristi Gilleland
There was just too much emotional turbulence between the characters and too little character and plot development.
H. Sapiens
The ending left a lot of questions, too many for my taste, but it's clear that this book is just the beginning.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Gena Showalter's Intertwined has a fascinating premise: Aden, the main character, has four other souls living within his head whom he constantly hears. Each soul has a special "gift", such as time traveling or raising the dead, but it's Aden's habit of conversing aloud with the souls that has landed him in mental facilities and foster homes since the age of three. Needless to say, it's been almost impossible for Aden to make friends, and the fact that he knows exactly how he will die (thanks to one of the souls) doesn't help his situation. Until he moves to the D and M Ranch for troubled boys and receives a vision of a beautiful girl who will become his love interest; suddenly Aden is eager to find out if the girl he sees briefly is the mystery girl and he gets himself enrolled in the local school in order to find out. Only Mary Ann is not the girl, though she does become a friend. Instead, the beautiful vampire Victoria reveals herself to Aden, accusing him of "calling" her into his life. Thus begins a relationship that finds Aden battling the undead, the school bully, a bunkmate, a werewolf, and assorted other paranormal creatures as he searches for a way to set the souls trapped within free and possibly even get the girl in the process.

Whew. That's a lot of description to pack into a little paragraph. Trouble is, that's only the tip of the iceberg with Intertwined. It seems that each new chapter brings further complications and characters to muddy the waters and make Aden's life more difficult. And that is the biggest problem with this book: it's so convoluted with plots, sub-plots, and coincidences that I'm still not sure what was the main focus.

Somewhat confusing, with the many different story arc's but still a good read once you wade through the layers of the main and subplots of the book. Sadly, all the layers seem to only take away the ease of reading and relating to the main characters - let alone the four souls trapped in Adens head. It just makes it all little hard to follow with so much going on and so many mythical creatures popping up in what felt like every turn of the page.

The biggest let down for me by far, was that the story was sold to me on the fact that the it was about a person with 4 souls trapped inside of him and that each one had a different ability. Seeing the future, Possessing another, Waking the Dead and Time Travel - which was amazing to read when it finally happened throughout the book. I just wished there were more interaction with the trapped souls. In my eyes with the

whole mix of the many different things going on in this world that Gena Showalter has written, the main plot as I saw it (the four souls) had somewhat fallen to the wayside. In the end things were tied up with the souls a little bit to quickly for what I was expecting and left me with questions that I will only hope to see the answers for in the books to follow.

As a whole it was far from bad, just a little jumbled and confusing. Those few flaws wouldn't and won't prevent me from purchasing the next in the series as I look forward to learning more in the future and to find out just where the author will take us and her characters next.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Intertwined is a book that is complicated. The main character Aiden has a complicated problem (extra souls in his body that talk to him all the time and have strange powers). He meets a girl (Mary Ann) who effects him in a complicated way that he's intrigued by. He also falls in love with a vampire girl who he knows will one day kill him. And there's a werewolf that falls for Mary Ann who is also the protector of Vampire girl and who hates Aiden.

The plot plods by with things conveniently working out and strange subplots and extra characters being introduced that don't really matter that much to the plot and everything just gets more complicated and then conveniently works it's way to the end while not tying up most of the loose ends.

Had the author chose to just focus on the many souls plot or just the plot with the mystical creatures then perhaps this book would have been better, but as it was written it was just too complicated and convenient to the point where I didn't care much when the end came around. I did finish the book (which I can't say about everything I get) so it wasn't that bad, but I'm not going to be reading it again.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Aden has been in foster care since he was three years old. He's had four other souls living in his body for even longer than that--as far back as he can remember, in fact. These souls are constant voices in his head, and each brings a special power to the table. Because of these souls, Aden can time-travel, wake the dead, possess the bodies of others, and see glimpses of the future. Also because of these souls, Aden has spent a significant amount of his life in mental institutions.

Now Aden is sixteen, living in a group home in a new town, and he meets a girl. This girl's very presence silences the voices in his head, for the first time ever. Aden is intrigued, and finds himself being pulled toward this girl. Meanwhile, he also ends up having to grapple with werewolves, vampires, and other creatures of mythology.

I liked Aden and his struggle to be normal, and it was interesting to get to see some of his past and the way he interacted with the voices within. The premise of his character was fascinating, and I would have liked the chance to see how his story worked out.

It was disappointing that this story ended abruptly, obviously making room for a sequel in which things will be wrapped up. Although I liked Aden's character, I didn't find any of the other characters interesting enough that I would want to read a second book about them.

Another problem I had with this book was that it tried to fit in too much fantasy. Aden's ability and the way he was dealing with it made a great story. When the other characters started to appear and the reader found out that there were vampires, werewolves, witches, fairies, and goblins wandering around as well, it just began to feel too unfocused.
