Gena Showalter's writing and imagination does not fail in this book. *But* there was too much plot. Way too much going on. Aden's story was fascinating, as was Mary Ann's. How their lives intertwined and all the elements that went with it was intriguing and intense and . . . too much. You have the alternating POVs, the different story lines, subplots for each POV, and, on top of the main aspects of the story, you have *their* subplots. Does that make sense? And honestly, I could guess the plot from the very beginning. Way to go for not masking the hints very well. Sometimes NO hints are the best. Could have flat out told me exactly who Eve was the first time Aden sees Mary Ann. Also, I really hate poetic, cryptic sentences that make you scratch your head afterward.
Yeah. It was just a lot to have in one book. Hope the next is less of a tangled web and more of a flowing story.
I'm a big Twilight fan and this book sounded intresting so I decided to give it a try but I just didn't like it. The idea is pretty good but I just though the characters were strange. The girl is in love with a wolf. She knows he's a shapeshifter but she has never seen him human or really talked to him and the few times he has talked into her mind he is rude. I just didn't get it. It's ok if your looking for something to pass the time but it's not one I would listen to again. I auctually can't even remember how it ended, I think I fell asleep listening to it and didn't care enough to rewind it.
I truly enjoyed this book. It has a "Twilight Sage" feel to it, but still enjoyable. The only thing I did not like about the book was the abrupt ending. The author provides much detail throughout the story and then it just ends.
The narrator was superb! I enjoy listening to her.
Gena Showalter is a fine author! I've listened to all her books that Audible has available.
I like Gena Showalter's adult books very much. This, however, has too much teenage angst for me. Everything causes angst - boyfriend, boy friends, girl friends, shapeshifters, Dad, voices in one's head, new school, bullies, memories being wiped clean -- the usual high school stuff.
Very enjoyable the characters are not typical, and something for everyone! When you think you know who's who Surprise! Worth the credit!
I think this book would be in the top ten I have listened to.
Kept me guessing and waiting to see what happens next.
She brings the story to me so I can go on walks and not have to sit around to read it myself!
Listened to it twice in a row!
If you like books along the lines of hounded or Twilight then this is a great series to get into. After finishing this book, I immediately downloaded the second. I am a person that like the twilight serious even though being inside the head of a teenage girl got very annoying at times. Intertwined has some of those concepts and moments but its not as over done and usually seems a bit more realistic. The fact that its a teenage boy helps alot as well. (from a guy's perspective anyway). The premise of the book is unique even though it uses many of the same ficitional beings (i.e. vampires, werewolves) however, it includes many more and it is very interesting the feuds and interactions between each of the beings. The story has many layers and that keeps the reader from getting bored.
The narrator is pretty good as well. She covers alot of different voices and they are pretty distinguishable so you know who is speaking pretty quickly. The story has alot of twists and turns that keep you intrigued and wanting to hear more. There are some tedious times but as in most books its better if you over explain than not explain at all and leave the reader wandering what is going on. Overall this was a good book and I'm half way through the 2nd book Unraveled and its getting even better. I recommend that if you like this genre this book is worth a shot.
I have read a lot of books and I was hesitant to get this book but I am surprisingly glad I did !!!!!
I love all the twists and turns this book takes you in I am hopping the next keeps the same characters
I think she really brings you into their lives with out knowing it you are sucked in wanting to know more
I am not really sure there is too much to explain in just a slogan
I loved every second of this book and can't wait to start the next one !!!
