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.
Aden is fending off the zombies that he had accidently animated from a cemetery when Mary Ann Gray walks by. Somehow her simple presence causes the undead to crumble and the four loud voices in Aden's head to go silent. Of course, having silence for the first time in his whole life, Aden is compelled to follow the pretty teen in hopes of learning how she does it. Mary Ann and Aden find themselves attracted to each other, as if they were long lost siblings. Yet at the same time, they feel a wild urge to run away from each other in terror.
Mary Ann soon spies a large, black wolf following her everywhere. It seems to understand her words and actions. At the same time, Mary Ann is having problems with her boyfriend, Tucker Harbor, who is becoming violent and her best friend, Penny Parks, who is keeping secrets.
Aden is having more problems than usual too. Dealing with the other boys at the ranch is bad enough, but then the girl from his visions appears. According to Victoria, one week ago he had attacked her people (vampires) with overwhelming energy. Her father, the king, has sent Victoria and her werewolf bodyguard, Riley, to observe Aden. Vlad would decide Aden's fate once Victoria reported back. To top it all off, vampires and shifters are not the only beings that felt the blast of energy. Aden has become a magnet for anyone with supernatural abilities. Mary Ann falls into that category too. She is a neutralizer. No one can use their magical abilities when she is near.
As the four begin to form a wary alliance, things begin spiraling out of control. Crossroads, Oklahoma, is about to be flooded with all types of magical creatures and the collateral damage would be devastating.
***** FIVE STARS! Even with my long synopsis I have not touched upon even half of the plot, subplots, characters, or events. Whenever I began to believe that things could not possibly get any stranger, fascinating, or dangerous, the author would prove me wrong. As for the ending, the story does not end in a cliff-hanger; however, many threads are left dangling. The next title, Unraveled, will continue where this one stops.
Author Gena Showalter has created a fascinating world with strange and intriguing characters that readers cannot help but feel drawn to. From the first page, until the last, my eyes were compelled to keep reading long past my bed time. I guess that is a good word to describe this story: compelling. *****

Throughout the book the point of view changes between Aden and Mary-Anne, so I felt as though I got a full story because Aden and Mary-Anne help put together different pieces of information that add to the story. I also felt like as the story progressed even though the point of view changed the story almost melded together and who was telling it didn't matter. Changing point of views made sense and almost helped the story flow better. I am guessing the title of the book is supposed to be a reflection of that.
Aden is a very likable character, he has had a hard life and you are really rooting for him in this book because he just cannot seem to catch a break. Mary-Ann is also a great character, she is sweet and thoughtful, but needs a little fun in her life and Riley is just the guy to give her that. I liked seeing the relationships grow between Aden and Victoria and Riley and Mary-Ann, it is interesting how all four of them really balance each other out. I know that sounds a little weird, but that is how I felt about them, I look at each of them as 1/4 of a circle, when they are all together they are whole. Okay, I am not doing a good job explaining this, but I think if you read it you will understand what I mean.
The only other downside for me in this book was the ending, I felt like everything was really rushed or just happened really fast. The climax built up and when you finally get there the ending happens so quickly I got to the last page and went "Wait, what?" I felt like I was left with questions, the biggest one being I am still not sure why Aden and Mary-Ann are drawn together, and what caused everything to stop, literally, when they first see each other. I am afraid I might have missed something, or maybe those are questions that the next book will answer. Either way, Gena Showalter has done her job because I am now counting down to the release of the next book because I have to know the answers to those questions. I know that the voices in Aden's head are a bit confusing, but that is not enough to put me off of this book. I also know that I sometimes read too quickly and you cannot do that with this book or you will miss something, you need to read this one slowly. I am very intrigued to see where these four characters are headed next and thought that as a whole the book was good. The next installment is called Unraveled and comes out this August
