Review: Unraveled

Unraveled (Intertwined #2) by Gena Showalter
Publication date: August 31, 2010
Genre: YA Fantasy
Pages: 572


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 been "different" himself. These souls can time-travel, raise the dead, possess another's mind and, his least favorite these days, tell the future.
The forecast for Aden? A knife through the heart.
Because a war is brewing between the creatures of the dark, and Aden is somehow at the center of it all. But he isn't about to lie down and accept his destiny without a fight. Not when his new friends have his back, not when Victoria has risked her own future to be with him, and not when he has a reason to live for the first time in his life….
I found the first one entertaining and definaly made me want to read this one. But the first one, Intertwined, was better.
The book is very much like the first. The pace was pretty good. It wasn't too fast but never slowed down too much. The story moved forward, but there was a few things I didn't like. One, the beasts inside the vampires made almost made zero sense. It just didn't feel right. Two, the direction that Mary Ann went. She was no longer this normal high school student mixed into this crazy world, she is now part of it. And that doesn't fit her.
The characters are pretty much the same as they were at the end of Intertwined. The souls are still the best and Aden is still just okay. And like I sadi before, Mary Ann just doesn't fit in her new role.
The last thing I have thought son is the ending. The fighting part of the ending worked and I enjoyed it. The part after that was not good. It was a little confusing and didn't fit.
Overall, I did like the book. It was nothing special but it never tried t be. If you liked the first one, i think you will like this one.
