Both attracted and repelled, he thought& Were they like magnets? And if so, did that mean she was like him? Or his opposite?
Aden has always been the outcast, but never alone. Four drastically different chatty souls reside in his head. They dont know how they got there or why, all they know is that none of them can get out. Left unable to do anything else, the spirits resign themselves to a life were all they do is narrate and criticize everything Aden does. There is never a moments silence in his head, until Mary Ann crosses his path. Whenever she is near, the voices disappear. He doesnt understand how it works, but he does know that if he wants more quiet he needs to spend as much time with Mary Ann as he can. Unbeknownst of them, their meeting caused a power surge that hurt every supernatural creature across the world. None of them are happy about the aching tug Aden created and they are about to let him know that&
Intertwined immediately drew me in. Not only did I never want to put it down, I also completely lost track of time.
Every fight was intense, horrible, and quick, taking me faster and faster along. The best of logic was torn apart by unanswerable questions. Romance budded within their midst and blossomed into passionate, loyal love. Intertwined ran from the beaten path of common love triangles and replaced it with unexpected romances, mutual untrusting tolerance, sibling-like caring, and ultimately& friendship. It was very refreshing to have characters who knew what they wanted and werent afraid to chase after it& even when everything went downhill. The characters supernatural abilities and nonhuman divisions, were amazingly well-developed. They were authentic and palpable.
Awkward moments of misunderstanding and touching intimate conversations were perfectly executed in present tense, allowing me, the reader, to feel them first hand. The ending was unexpected, gruesome, and left me wanting more.
I cannot wait until the next book comes out, and not just because of the cliffhanger last page. I hope it turns out just as intense, unputdownable, and unpredictable as Intertwined was.
