"Aden Stone is not your typical 16-year-old. Since birth he has had four souls trapped within him that possess special powers: the ability to time travel, raise the dead, possess a body, and predict the future. As a result, he has spent his whole life in and out of mental institutions diagnosed as a violent schizophrenic. Now able to control the voices in his head, Aden has moved to Crossroads, OK, to live in a halfway house for delinquent boys. His goal in life is to find a means to free these souls and at last be at peace. When he meets Mary Ann Gray, she miraculously acts as a neutralizer, and for the first time in his life, he truly feels normal. The two become fast friends, establishing a sibling-type bond. Little do they realize that when they first met, their connection sent a power surge throughout the world drawing every paranormal creature from fairies to vampires to Crossroads on a quest for power. To complicate matters, Aden becomes romantically involved with a vampire princess and Mary Ann with her werewolf bodyguard. Together the teens must figure out a way to protect themselves, and all of humanity. This fast-paced, action-driven plot has many unexpected twists and turns. Well written, with a unique story line and strong characters, Intertwined is fresh and original at a time when there is an overload of paranormal romances on the market."Wow, is the only word that comes to mind. This book has it all, vampires, witches, werewolves, time traveling, ghouls, demons, faeries, and more. I can't wait for the next book in this series!. I read it in one day as I could not put it down. So much happened in this book, I felt as though I had already read two or three books in a series. Showalter could have easily made 2 or 3 books out of this and you would not have felt cheated. I have always loved her adult books but she has outdone herself with her first YA paranormal. This is definitely a book that adults will love and teens will get excited over.
