From the Author
Let me tell you, Twisted was a monster to write. Take Aden Stone and the three souls trapped inside his head - each with an ability of their own, like predicting the future, raising the dead and possessing other human bodies--add in Victoria, a vampire princess who saved his life . . . only to possibly lose her own, as well as Mary Ann, a human far more powerful than the witches and fairies hunting her, and Riley, a sexy werewolf shapeshifter whose loyalties are about to be tested, and you've got an adventure that nearly killed me.
Okay, okay. Perhaps I'm exaggerating just a wee bit. But this book was difficult to write. There's a darkness inside of Aden, and that darkness is growing . . . overtaking him. He's becoming an indestructible vampire, while his girlfriend is becoming a vulnerable human. Talk about a cruel twist of fate! (Yes. I went there.)
On the other end of the spectrum, Mary Ann is on the run and dangerous to everyone she encounters. Riley is hot on her heels, and determined to protect this girl he's falling in love with. But. There's always a "but" with me, isn't there? Along the way, secrets are uncovered, old enemies resurface, and vicious battles are fought. And the outcome isn't what anyone expects.
Because I'm, what? Twisted. (Yep. I went there again.)
Here's a little teaser:
Aden took a menacing step toward her, then another. Victoria backed away slowly, trying not to be obvious in her cowardice. But he didn't stop coming, and she didn't stop retreating, and finally her back was pressed into a thick three trunk. She didn't know this Aden, and didn't know how he'd react to the things she did and said. Then he flattened his hands at her temples, his body brushing against hers and making her gasp, and she didn't know anything at all. He'd caged her in, surrounded her, becoming the center of her world.
"Do I have your attention?" he asked.
Wishing you all the best!

And boy oh boy this story definitely rocked! In the beginning I was starting to worry about Aden and Victoria, things were complicated between them. Their relationship seemed to be taking turns for the worst. Victoria and Aden both changed dramatically.
Like always it's hard to get into all the details without giving away spoilers. Mostly because SO MUCH happened! OMG 564 pages was soooo not enough! Aden's trying to adjust to his new changes from Victoria and rule the vampires since he's their king, but with challenges coming left and right he's having a hard time. Victoria seems to be losing her vampire-ness while Aden's gaining some, and don't forget she still has a challenge to take in order to keep Aden to herself from that other vampire b*tch--whose name is escaping me for the moment!
Mary Ann is on the run if you recall, with her ex Tucker in tow. She's trying to help Aden out by figuring out who his other souls' true identities are. And Tucker is still a bit of a problem, he says he's not under Vlad's control anymore because after stabbing Aden under his orders, he took off to be with her to help dull his demon-ness. But Riley catches up with them, ending his fun. Mary Ann gets onto something, something big! She makes more than one shocking discovery, and of course there's some serious stuff happening between her and Riley. She still loves him, but this THING that happened which I can't say, is BIG and it kind of puts a wedge between them that totally broke my heart!
Vlad is still on the fringe of things and intent on ruining Aden's life. While Aden is still trying to help the souls with their unfinished business, and he does manage to send one more soul onto heaven or wherever at the end. But then something else HUGE happens. BIG TIME HUGE for ALL the characters! The 4 had separated and we left them all totally hanging in the moment, so it's killing me to have to wait so long for the next book. And the choices the characters make are really nagging at me, because I want to know the results. I want to know how things will end! Something BIG is going to happen to all of them and I want to know what it is now! Not 2 years from now! Oh I hope that was just a rumor--which I kinda doubt--and that a new book comes out next year. Plus there's word of a spinoff series featuring Riley's bros! Which sounds good!
So there's my review! Sorry I can't say more! Just so much happened and I so loved it and it excited and killed me, I feel if I talk more I might say something I shouldn't, these fingers have a mind of their own when typing sometimes! The book is well paced as its predecessors so the action is hardly ever dull, just when you get wrapped up with one's telling, we jump to another character and get sucked into their p.o.v. A tremendous read!
This book was not on my TBR list for this week, but my 16 year old teenage son has been reading this series with me and finished the book last night. He was so shattered by the book that he insisted I read it immediately so that we could discuss it. That should give you a hint of the upheaval in this book...there is a LOT of it.
This is an amazing series and it needs to be read as a series. These are not stand-alone books in my opinion. There is too much story that continues to build upon itself. This is book #3 in a series that is supposed to end with the next book. How in the world it is going to end, I have no idea. Quite honestly, I don't think Gena knows how it is going to end at this point. Every book, she talks about how hard they are to write, but that effort is evident in the quality of the books, because they are very good!
There are a core of four characters that flow throughout the series.
*Aden- he was born with the souls of 4 other people living within his brain. He is 16 and throughout the series, he is trying to release those souls although they have been like his parents to him his entire life. He was raised in the foster system and spent most of his life in and out of institutions because of the souls and the prevailing thought that he is schizophrenic.
*Victoria- vampire princess and Aden's love interest. She goes through such a huge transition throughout this book as a person and vampire.
*Riley- wolf shifter and bodyguard for Victoria. His transition throughout this book was the most heart-breaking to me. I just hope that something changes for him in the next book. He is involved with MaryAnne.
*MaryAnne- human that is somehow connected to Aden. They were born the same day and when they met, it set off a chain of events that set off the entire series. At the end of this novel, she is in a very bad place...at least headed there. Things are not looking well for MaryAnne...thinking positive thoughts for book #4.
*Tucker- MaryAnne's ex-boyfriend and half-demon. He is in such a Catch 22. His story breaks my heart all the way around and I really did not like where it went in this book. Not sure that anything can change, but am still hoping for book #4.
This book really didn't end well for any of the characters. I can deal with that, BUT OMG, the next book isn't supposed to be out until June, 2013!?!?! I am not sure that I can deal with that. I think that I am going to have to go live with Gena while she is writing to make sure that she settles everything correctly for these characters that I have grown to love.
