Review: Unraveled

Unraveled 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…" (From author's website)

My Review:
The second book in the Intertwined series does not let you down. Aden and the gang are dealing with the witches' curse while something seems to be going on with Mary Ann which affects her relationship with Riley. One of the things I liked about this book is we get to learn more about Victoria who I felt a little indifferent about her in the first book. Aden tries to figure out how to be the King of the vampires who are demanding he dates other girls so he can choose a Queen. There is a new adversary in the form of fairies. The pace and character interactions are amazing and some scenes will make you laugh out loud. Once again Mary and Riley's relations was my favorite and I can't wait to see more of it in book 3 Twisted where we will see Victoria and Riley's POV which is super exciting. There is an even bigger cliffhanger at the end that could be a game changer for Aden and Victoria.
