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 b

Oh my God! I swear even if I liked Intertwined, I haven’t expected Unraveled to be so good. I just couldn’t stop reading and I forgot to breath a dozen of times. The book is wonderful. While Gena wasn’t steady with her writing in Interwined, she got homerun with this one.

The narrative is excellent. The voices are much better to comprehend now, the story flies and the actions are perfect. I seriously was uptight the whol
As much as I adore these series, I can't stand it. I just find the characters unbelievably unbelievable, and the only thing that kept me going was to find out what was gonna happen in the end. Now that I have, I probably will end up reading the next book too. Should be intereting.

I read the first book in this series and enjoyed it enough that I wanted to read this next book in this series. I picked up a copy back when it was released. I started reading it and got about half way. However something happened and my interest got lost along the way. I stopped reading and this book ended up in my long pile of to be read books. I would pass this book many times and thought I need to pick this book up again and finish it. I finally did and at this time I started from the beginni ...more

One of the reasons I loved the first novel in this series, Intertwined, was because it was the ultimate paranormal read. You like vampires, it’s got em. Werewolves? Got those too! Fairies, witches, goblins, demons... you betcha! It’s like a creature overload and I love it.

Unraveled didn’t disappoint.

Intertwined was more of an introduction novel... you meet Aden, lean about his ‘abilities’ and you meet the three other characters; Victoria, Mary Ann and Riley. Unraveled is a lot more action! And

I'm beginning to think I need to eat my words when I say that the second book usually disappoints. As of late, that has so not been the case. After reading Intertwined, I might not have read Unraveled had it not been for that fact that I won a copy of it. I would have missed an excellent addition to a series I will be continuing!

Poor Aden! All he wants to do is have a normal life, attend high school, etc. But, now he's the king of the vampires. He has to make decision regarding blood-slaves, cha

Since I'm sucking at posting reviews I've decided to let Goodreads do the work for me. I'm hoping this will at least let me express my thoughts on the title at the very minimum even though it might not be formatted as I have in the past.

Unraveled (Intertwined, #2) by Gena Showalter

My initial thoughts after reading Unraveled:
Amazingly perfect. Awaiting the next book already! :)

Gena Showalter never fails to impress me.

What I love about Gena's YA series is that it's relevant to the young adult age group while so full of awesome that adult re

I'm back in Crossroads baby! I probably shouldn't be this excited about being back with Aden and his friends, considering they do have a death curse on them, but I can't help it. I couldn't wait to get back into this fantastical fictitious world created by Showalter. There's murder, intrigue, love ... and werewolves! Who wouldn't be?

Aden has found a way to be with the love of his young life, Victoria the vampire. All he had to do was kill her betrothed, the Vampire King who murdered her father,

Love Gena, Hated This Book

Aden Stone used to be considered a crazy, an outcast. Since coming to Crossroads, Oklahoma though life has been looking up. His home life at the D and M Ranch is pretty decent. He's trying to do well in school. He even has a friends and a girlfriend. So maybe some of those friends are vampires and werewolves, and maybe there are still three souls chatting him up in his head. Things could be worse, he could be about to be crowned king of the vampires in spite of the fact

Unraveled introduced very few new characters, which was a major plus. We're finally getting to see more of the many that showed up briefly in Intertwined. A lot of questions were raised in Unraveled. The problem is there were almost no answers provided. The book ends with a huge new issue without resolving any of the many issues that have come up in either book. While I enjoyed the ride, I found myself unsatisfied in the end, wondering when if we would ever actually be given answers or if the qu ...more

Ever since coming to crossroads Oklahoma, Aiden stone has been living the good life. Well if good life means a werewolf best-friend, a vampire princess girlfriend, and a supernatural drainer as a sister to him, then yeah its pretty good, not to mention the three souls living inside his head who can raise the dead, tell the future, and posses other bodies. Aiden knows that his life is going to end soon, by a knife through the heart, so he is trying to live it to the fullest. But when witches inte ...more

Alright, so Unraveled starts two days after the ending of the last book, and I have to say I liked Intertwined a lot better than this one(yes, I only rated it 2 stars but it was a whole star better than the second book). It was such a paranormalcy overload. The souls were enough fun without the vampires and werewolves and witches and goblins
and faeries and vampires and. . .

I liked the characters a lot less in this book too. Except for Victoria. I still hate her as much as before. Oh, and except

Okay, I have YET to read Intertwined(the first book) i saw this book at the Library so i started with it first.

All in All, this is a decent read.
The Voices Aden hears are actually the best part and I look forward to going back to Book 1 to get a better intro of them.

I love Riley and Mary Ann's relationship and their characters are very engaging in this book. I want a boyfriend like Riley :)

What I don't like:

Aden & Victoria.

Aden alone as a character without Victoria is pretty cool and I like

I don't know why I waited so long to get to the second book. The first was amazing, the second is just as great! I love this series so far. So different and unique that it's so much fun to delve into this world and get lost in such great characters.

In case you don't know, I love the souls. They crack me up! They are always seeming to cause Aden problems, headache and heartache. They keep Dan thinking he's not as okay as Aden tries to make him seem and they don't give Aden any sort of peace. But

I found Unraveled to drag a bit compared to the awesomeness of Intertwined. Eveybody is still trying to come to terms with Aden becoming the king of the vampires and they still have the witch curse looming over there heads as well as creatures still spilling from the woodworks trying to get at the new king, a title that Aden so totally has confessed he does not want and ponders over why Riley cant be the new king but yet there is a nagging moment every time he thinks of giving up the title.

Så var det en gång i tiden.
Men det förändrades då han träffade Victoria, vampyrprinssesan. Hon, hans nya bästa vän Mary Ann och hennes varulvs- pojkvän Riley gjorde Aden lyckligare än han någonsin kunnat föreställa sig att en person kunde vara.

Unraveled is a a good follow up to the series "Intertwined" it follows Aden through his struggles along with friends Victoria (vampire), Riley (Werewolf), Maryann (Neutralizer although later on something additional), and of course the remaining 3spirits one that can raise the dead, one that can pocess bodies, and one can see the future who had predicted Aden's death.

This is the continuation of Aden's story, which began in Intertwined. He's not the only one with new troubles and big secrets. Unfortunately, not all of the changes will bring happiness to those involved. Sometimes you can't catch a break...

Wow... this book has a LOT going on. Almost too much, but somehow the author does a really good job of keeping the flow and and not losing the reader. If you are into the supernatural then this book has it all; wolves, vampires, drainers, muters, souls stuck in someone elses head, goblins, fairys, witches, beast like dragons held captive inside the vampires... you get the point. The entire book follows two love stories and both of them get an A+ from me. I appreciate that there are no triangles ...more

I was so excited going into this one and I was glad that I stayed that way the entirety of this book. I am surprised I have not read this series sooner because this book has everything I love in a book including the romance and the plethora of mystical creatures (witches, goblins, demons, werewolves, vampires, fairies, ALL OF THEM!) I recommend this series to anyone who is looking for a quick, enjoyable read. I plowed through the first two books and now I cannot wait to get my hands on the third ...more
The first half was filled with boring teenage relationship drama, but the second half reminded me why I liked the first book in the series. The aftertaste tells me the author might have bit off more than she can chew. There's just too many different kinds of supernatural beings littered on the pages for any of them to be characterised properly. Mary Ann and Aden had theirs sketched in the first book.
It was ok. I think the book could have been a good 200 pages shorter. The excitement really starts near the end, leading up the fact that there will be another book in the series. I'm getting irritated by Mary and would like to see more focus on Aden, but he does some irritating and stupid things, too. I've always wondered why authors give characters two names, why can't he just be "Aden" and not "Haden"?
