I liked twisted. There are quite a few surprising twists to the book and others that I guessed where it was heading.
This is aimed at YA. Most of the characters are teenagers. The only parents we hear about are very disappointed ones. I wanted to shake and yell at them. I got involved in the book. This is a clean read. Their is way too much underage drinking going on.
Cayden is adopted. His sister Kylie is just months younger than him and is adopted too. Their adopted mom could not take her husband drinking so she left them with him. He is always drunk. Cayden finds that he has special gifts he is faster and stronger than normal. He is pretty good at hiding his talents. His sister does not even know.
Camilla is Cayden's best friend forever. Her parents are always traveling. She is lucky to see them at all. Dana Cayden's girlfriend is jealous of Cam. Camilla is tired of being alone all the time.
I can't wait to read the second book. I have lots of questions about some of the other characters in the story. How are they making their money. We really don't see much of Cayden's sister Kylie she is always with others.
Lots of drama, some action, some mystery, lot of relationships and special powers. It is entertaining to read and did not want to say goodbye to the characters yet.
I was given this ebook to read. The opinions are all mine.
Cayden seemed like a sweetheart, even though I think he was a little dense when it came to his love life. He did seem to mature in other ways during the course of the story though. He went from having to keep the largest part of his life a secret to being able to share it with his family and close friend. Along the way though he finds family he never knew he had as well as discovers new powers. He finds out that he may have enemies because of these powers, so it is even more important to keep them hidden.
I liked the relationship between Cayden and Camilla. The strong friendship and how they are both fighting feelings for each other that run deeper.
Even with the slow start, the book picked up and once rolling along kept up the speed. I would probably pick up the second book in the series as there is still a lot about Cayden and his family that remains a mystery.
Cayden and Camilla are so perfect together their names are an alliteration. Their natural, relaxed interactions, their ability to understand how far to push, when to fight, and when to keep quiet is remarkable. They care for each other so much, transcend their not-so-fabulous lives, and make the world a brighter place by being together. They’re chemistry isn’t the kind of lusty, sexual tension that’s common in YA, but something more honest, deeper. It’s actually kind of beautiful.
The story was unconventional, unique, and quite a refresher from the angels, demons, vampires, and werewolves.
The plot was a little slow at first but as the mysterious nature of Cayden’s powers are revealed, the massive amount of questions about his past, his capabilities, and what exactly he is will have you digging in, frantically flipping the pages seeking a dramatic revelation.
Cayden’s secret, his insecurities, and how alone he feels not only in his home life but in his confusion about his powers is moving. The exploration of his inner struggles, his fight to keep up his normal, popular image, and the war between who he really is, and who he wants to become is one everyone can relate to.
Cayden’s necklace. What a creative, brilliant idea! Also, I seriously hope someone with jewelry making talent takes fangirling to the next level, and puts them out for sale.
There were a few typos, spelling errors, and weird grammatical constructions. Also, several echoes (repetition of the same word in preceding sentences multiple times).
Cayden is stubborn to the point of pushing people away, and is really harsh when he’s frustrated. Although he is a strong protagonist, some of his actions are questionable (he dates a very superficial, bitchy, paranoid, and extremely jealous girl with no substance). For being such a genuine, nice guy he’s pretty blind to what’s in front of him. This is infuriating, and his distancing from his family, and friends makes him hard to get to know.
The pranks, training, and general fighting between the characters is hilarious. Their jokes are definitely something worth reading over and over for laughs.
