In the beginning I couldn't put the book down, mainly due to the characters- Each one so different but unique. But the pages stop turning fast as I fe..Show More »ll upon the middle of the book. Everything just felt so long and drawn out. I had to really push to get through it. But eventually the plot picked up again.
The ending of this book is not complete. There's no plot resolution. Your just left hanging not knowing any answers. It's like they took one solid book and ripped it in half to make two.
YA or Adult---YA
Tearjerker --- No
Laugh worthy--Not really.
Action--- Yes there are a few fight scenes.
Gruesome--- Minor- there's some description that makes you cringe a bit.a
Love---- Yes but it's not presented as a deep everlasting love. (at least it was to me)
Worth the money to buy?
I'm a bit iffy... My advice is wait until the second book in the series comes out. ( If you can) Due to the fact there's no plot resolution in the first.
This is a great book. The nararator is wonderful, if you think it starts off slow, just give it a chance. I was very pleased overall and can't wait ..Show More »for another! If you like other Gena Showalter books, you will not be disappointed.
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 s..Show More »eries, 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. Everyone changed so drastically so fast that I found myself wondering who are these people and where did the wonderful characters I loved so much go?
When I first picked up Intertwined I was blown away, I mean vampires, werewolves, witches, necromancy, a couple of interesting wildcard paranormals and two love stories, this book has everything I love about the genre. I invested in this intriguing story and got involved with these characters. I looked forward to the continuation of these books every long year. And now I feel like the author just trashed everything I invested in.
I think Gena Showalter is the truly twisted one here. To wait a year for a book that makes me think even the author wasn't happy with the direction so she went completely insane with the characters, extra light on the storyline, and destroyed everything just so she could have a do over.
This book is about 98% filler. I get the idea of Twisted, but with a weak storyline and without the anchor of the characters and romances the fans have grown to like it became muddled and confusing at times. Showalter let go of everything all at once so it was hard to hold on to the bits and pieces I came back for. Just when I find a familiar character or relationship, it's pulled out from under me and I'm left flailing for some point of interest. Twisted was executed poorly and was an unnervingly drastic change from the previous books. I wish the author would have just kept the important parts, left out the weird character developments, and moved on with the story.
As for the audiobook version I was really confused because the main lead character is a guy but the narrator for some reason is a girl. She didn't have any range either. I think this is one series that would benefit from a duo male/female narrating combo.
