Review: Unraveled (Intertwined #2) by Gena Showalter

For once, sixteen-year-old Aden Stone has everything he’s ever wanted:

A home.


The girl of his dreams.

Too bad he’s going to die...Since coming to Crossroads, Oklahoma, former outcast Aden Stone has been living the good life. Never mind that one of his best friends is a werewolf, his girlfriend is a vampire princess who hungers for his blood, and he’s supposed to be crowned Vampire King – while still a human! Well, kind of.

With four – oops, three now — human souls living inside his head, Aden has always been “different” himself. These souls can time travel, raise the dead, possess another’s mind, and, his least favorite these days, tell the future.

The forecast for Aden? A knife through the heart.

Because a war is brewing between the creatures of the dark, and Aden is somehow at the center of it all. But he isn’t about to lie down and accept his destiny without a fight. Not when his new friends have his back, not when Victoria has risked her own future to be with him, and not when he has a reason to live for the first time in his life...

Intertwined was the first book I reviewed on my blog, so I was extremely excited to read the second book in the series, Unraveled. From the first page, I was excited to see what was going to happen.

So much happened in this book that it was definitely a wild ride. Aden, Mary Ann, Victoria, and Riley all end up dealing with something big. Like before, Aden had to deal with the souls in his head, but now he has to deal with being Vampire King along with his impending death involving a knife. Mary Ann has to deal with finding out what she actually is, and what she is is not pretty. I have to say I feel sorry for her. Victoria

This is just a few of the things going on, and there is lot going on. To add to the mix, all of the main characters have to deal with a meeting with the witches that they have no idea where or when it will take place. If Aden does not make the meeting, all of them will die.

I definitely liked this book. It was fun to read with all of the action and adventure. The story line was exciting, but there was too much going on. At the end of the book, we are left with more questions than answers. There is a cliffhanger that leaves you with even more questions, so I definitely want to know what happens next.

Rating: 4/5
