Review: Intertwined by Gena Showalter

Intertwined (Intertwined, #1)  Hardcover, 440 pages
Published September 1st 2009 by Harlequin


Most sixteen-year-olds have friends.
Aden Stone has four human souls living inside him:
One can time travel.
One can raise the dead.
One can possess another human.
One can tell the future.
Everyone thinks he's crazy, which is why he's spent his entire life shuffled between mental institutions and juvie. All of that is about to change, however. For months Aden has been having visions of a beautiful girl—a girl who carries centuries-old secrets. A girl who will either save him or destroy him.
Together they'll enter a dark world of intrigue and danger…but not everyone will come out alive.

                                                              My Review:
Aden Stone has four human souls trapped in his head for as long as he can remember they've been there. Eve who can travel back in time,Elijah who can see the future,Julian who can raise the dead,and Caleb who can possess bodies.Everyone thinks he's crazy because he talks to himself and has been through institutions,medications and doctors trying to  help him overcome his "schizophrenia". And lately Aden has been getting tired of the souls and he needs to find a way to free the them so he can live a normal life. Aden gets transferred  into a new group home (Dand M) for young delinquents.This the last chance he has and if he messes it up he will be locked up in a psychiatric hospital. He has been dreaming of a beautiful girl that he will fall in love with so he is desperate to stay.Then he meets Mary Ann Gray and whenever she is around the four souls are quiet and peaceful. Mary Ann is Aden’s opposite; she has a lot of friends, is a good girl and never gets into trouble. The only thing they have in common is that they both lost their mother at an early age. But that doesn’t stop them from building a friendship between them.At first Mary Ann is a little skeptical about the truth, but soon enough discovers that there are more creatures living on this Earth. Aden and Mary Ann meet werewolf shape-shifter Riley, who becomes very protective of Mary Ann and is a bodyguard to vampire princess Victoria........which Aden can’t resist and soon they are on a journey into this new world, hoping to find answers to Aden’s past and his connection to Mary Ann. 

Intertwined is unique, gripping and packed full of adventure. Around every corner there's an unfolding mystery, I loved all the souls they were all really funny and defiantly made the story more interesting and unique my favorite couple would have to be Mary Ann and Riley I loved how protective Riley was of Mary Ann.I really liked all the characters in this book except at first I didn't really like Victoria but I started to warm up to her towards the end.I defiantly recommend reading this book it was very good read I can not wait to read the next in the series
