Sixteen-year-old Aden Stone has had a hell of a week. He's been:
Tortured by angry witches. Hypnotized by a vengeful fairy. Spied on by the most powerful vampire in existence. And, oh, yeah, killed--twice.
His vampire girlfriend might have brought him back to life, but he's never felt more out of control. There's a darkness within him, something taking over...changing him.

Gena Showalter is officially on my shit-list. I don't mind if the tone of a series changes slightly, but if I all of a sudden feel like I'm reading a completely different series, I'm not going to be happy. This book isn't just darker. It's like going from watching My Little Ponies to watching the Saw movies.

First of all, let me start with the fact that Aden, our main character suddenly has a new personality, because Gena Showalter can't write realistic nice guys. No. She has to write he-man, vi

SERIOUSLY????? W.T.F. Happened to this series?

I LOVED the first book. Second book okay not as good as the first one. Third book THIS ONE...WENT TO THE DOGS!

It's too dark.

Aden is a cold ass monster. WHO turns the Hero into the Villian?

Victoria turns into a sniveling, insecure whiney twit!

Mary Anne. Do we even KNOW what her purpose is anymore?

Riley. Our strong sexy werewolf gets brought down hard!

Please shoot me now, I seriously thought that this is the last one in this series!!! So when I started I was excited to hear how it would be end and how it all would end... But when I came to the last 100 pages I was getting worried that she could not leave me like this and how the heck the story could end in only 100 pages..

When I read the last page I knew it... and I was relieved and angry at the same time. Relieved because I get more story and that I can spend more time with Aden, Vic, Mary

Are you F-ing kidding me. OKay so first things first. Aden is no longer Aden. He's a cold blooded son of a bitch that at the end of the story decides to go back and change everything? like are you kidding me? Second, the only reason i read this series was because i liked Riley and Marry Ann but at the end i couldn't even tell if they were together. Third, Riley and Victoria sleeping together was a pointless thing to bring up because all it did was cause the character's dignity to fall into a big ...more

Twisted is one amazing story! It had my mind whirling with all the events that happened in such a short time. It's the third book in the Intertwined novel and it definitely isn't winding down to a stop, instead it's getting to full speed. This is one of the better YA series I have read in such a long time.

I can't express how much I love the premise behind this series. I love the souls trapped in Aden's head and I love the new family he's formed with Riley, Victoria and Mary Ann. Such a great dyn

I've been following this series since the beginning and man, I'm not sure how it can get any better. I cannot believe how long I have to wait for this one!! I'm not sure if I can make it... I might self destruct!
Alejandro Zea Henao

O-Kay, I do have to admit that at the begging of the story I was a little frustrated (A lot actually ) that Aden turned into this heartless, power hungry, blood craving guy (but who doesn't let power fall way over their heads every once in a while). But the thing is, it actually went along with the story! He was fighting the inner turmoil of his ever growing beast and the past emotions of Victoria. Through the story we see the chang

I hope she brings this series to a close soon. Like, maybe the next book? Please. The story drug on and on, getting more and more convoluted, and then... BAM! Out popped an ending that set my teeth on edge. (view spoiler) Or possibly I'm just losing interest in these books. It wasn't tru

I really love the color scheme - it's pink and purple and surprisingly doesn't look to feminine. The arrangement of the word "Twisted" looks good. Even though it looks nice, it definitely doesn't fit with the rest of the covers of the series :/ This one won't look coherent with the first two, and that bugs me.

I'm also not liking that they didn't even mention what's going to happen to Riley and Mary Ann, seeing as they're the only reason I even read this series.

And um... 304 pages?! That's it?!

I followed this book since the beginning and have waited FOREVER to get it and it truly shattered my heart to see it flop like a fish out of water.

I know you guys are probably surprised because honestly, I was too. The first book, Intertwined was freaking AMAZING (Yep, all caps amazing) and the second book Unraveled literally left me speechless because I could NOT believe a second book of a series KILL the first book and shredded

What an aptly named disappointment. If you're looking for a continuation of all the wonderful things happening in the first two installments of this series, than be prepared to get nowhere fast.

Normally I write a brief summary of the book and then an evaluation but I am truly at a loss for a real concrete storyline. Yeah Aden got somewhere with the souls in his head but Showalter spent a majority of the book on Aden's new alter ego and complete character reversals for our two main couples. Ever

OH NO! This can't be right! Please tell me this book did not just end the way it did and the next book in the series does not come out in 2013. 2013?!I mean, reaaaaally? *pulls hair out and screams in frustration* Well, Ms Showalter, welcome in the club of Richelle Mead, Cassandra Clare, Julie Kagawa, KMM, Chloe Neill, Carolyn Crane and all those authors who broke my heart with their book endings lately.

THAT WAS THE WORST ENDING TO A SERIES I HAVE EVER READ!!!! Did Gena Showalter really end this series with this book??????? WHAT????? I refuse to believe this is the ending and I have created my own in my head where everyone is happy, all the bad people are dead, and all the souls in Aden's head are gone. There were so many loose ends!!! The last souls left in his head. Vlad. The vampires. Riley's wolf form. Dan and the delinquent kids. Shannon. Aden as vampire king. SO MANY MORE!!!!

So basically take what I like about the Story(Riley and Mary Ann) and make me hate it.

and take what I loathe about the Story(Aden/Victoria) and make me hate it more.

Like Unraveled, the story works best when the Story is not focusing on the Leads(Aden/Victoria).
Characters like the ones at the Halfway house, The Vampires at Victoria's home, Tucker, Soren,
and to a lesser extent Riley and Mary Ann interest me. I like the storylines of all these characters

Victoria's character is RUINED. She was annoy

This book really deserves two ratings or maybe no ratings. The rating I chose above reflects how I feel about the way the story played out. So, as far as everything else is concerned this was a good book. The characters were well written and the story very compelling.

Basically, I hate things that leave me feeling insulted. Yeah, this it turns out qualifies.

Okay I have read 1572 pages only to be told it was all a pointless waste of my precious time and brain cells. Psych, nevermi

Gena Showalter did not disappoint in this third installment of The Intertwined Series! Our Aden has come so far from the sad boy who just wants to fit in somewhere and be able to stay there for more than a month.

This is a series that really needs to be read in order to fully appreciate the journey Adens been on and how far he's come. Aden has/had 4 souls in his mind that most Psychiatrists attribute to Schizophrenia but what they don't know is that each of those souls has a unique supernatural

THERE IS GOING TO BE ANOTHER BOOK IN THIS SERIES. I don't care if there's not one announced or whatever, or that she's currently working on new series, BECAUSE THIS ONE IS NOT OVER.
it's just not. there were far too many loose ends left untied at the end of the book. and, the ENDING! that can't be the ending, I'm sorry, it just can't.
so. there will be another book in this series. and that is final.

so, beginning of this book, some graphic and bloody scenes with Aden and Victoria. And then, VIctor

Twisted is the perfect title for this book. Gena Showalter has literally twisted the world that Aiden lives in leaving me feeling lost, confused and a little peeved at the ending. One of the reasons I have enjoyed the series so much is because the characters are genuine. It was Victoria’s tenacity, Aiden’s selfless humanity, Maryann's Sincerity and Riley’s fierce loyalty that originally drew me deeper and deeper into the story. Twisted breaks these characters and finds them stripped of all they ...more

My Review:
This book was not on my TBR list for this week, but my 16 year old teenage son has been reading this series with me and finished the book last night. He was so shattered by the book that he insisted I read it immediately so that we could discuss it. That should give you a hint of the upheaval in this book...there is a LOT of it.

This is an amazing series and it needs to be read as a series. These are not stand-alone books in my opinion. There is too much story that continues to build up

Well the story is exactly as how it is named "twisted"!!! I too felt that the storyline was at least 70% filler! It had a good storyline, it captivated me. The first and second book were great but once it reached the third book things took a turn for the worst. And the sexual relationship between Riley and Victoria, despite the fact it happened before she met Aden it was very unnecessary and made my stomach churn! It deflated the love between the characters putting tension and mistrust there. An ...more

Right, I'm going to burn these books and never look back! Every character did an about face, it was pure chaos and I don't mean in a post modernism sense. I read a novel for a few reasons, the story is captivating - this one isn't. It is all over the place and has been since the beginning of the series. The other reason is because the characters are interesting and likeable - that's it - except now its not. So I now have no reason to continue this series.

Twisted is the perfect title for this book, because that is what happens, things get totally TWISTED! It seems like everything for the foursome went from bad to worse, and no matter what they do they cannot seem to make things right. Aden's war with Vlad is getting out of hand. Mary Ann being on the run is helping matters, and it seems to be mucking it up more. Both couples are fighting and bickering...

This book was a little more angsty and dramatic than I like, but I still enjoy the story.

Where to start?!?! I loved this book. I thought this was going to be a trilogy, but once I got to the end, I was not going to accept that there was only going to be 3 books. Gena's site says there is going to be a 4th book, but no date yet. I beg and plead to whomever controls what book she writes when. I must know what happens next! I have run so many different possible scenarios through my head. I need to know! I recommend this series to anyone who loves paranormal. If you like vampires and sh ...more
