The first two books in the series are Intertwined and Unraveled. I highly recommend reading them in order to get the most out of the series, otherwise because of the complex nature of The Intertwined Series I fear you'd get lost and even worse, you'd miss out on some fantastic reading!
So, here is my review for Twisted!
Twisted (Book #3 of the Intertwined Series)
August 30, 2011, Harlequin Teen
Hardcover; 304 pages
THE FAERYS VIEW
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 was born with 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 ability such as the ability to raise the dead, to see the future, etc... you get the picture. His life has been a living hell of abusive mental institutions and foster care homes until he meets Dan, an ex-football player who lives on a ranch with his wife and truly has the heart to help troubled teens. He takes a chance on Aden and is with us throughout the entire series, he is the one 'Adult' that has remained constant in Adens life.
Twisted is focused primarily on Aden and Victoria's journey-it is much darker than the two novels before it which I found kept things at a really exciting pace and I wasn't quite sure what to expect from Aden, again, adding a factor of 'What's going to happen next' which I loved! Aden is fighting for his life, his sense of self and his love while undergoing changes that bring out the darker side of his nature while Victoria is undergoing the exact opposite-it's truly amazing and kept me on the edge of my seat!
MaryAnne and Riley (Grrrr....now there's a hunka' burnin' love for ya!) are working on their own issues. MaryAnne is a drainer, meaning she drains all supernatural’s of their strength-to the point that she doesn't require food anymore. The Witches and Faeries want her dead along with Aden and the death spell the witches cast still hangs over their heads. There is the introduction of new characters both friend and foe while some old foes are still hanging around, the gang just doesn't know it. So much going on!
I love the storyline, plot twists and the characters of this series! I am never let down and find myself caring for the characters like friends and I'm never ceased to be amazed by Gena's plot twists-she's brilliant!
The Faery says READ THIS SERIES!
