Although Aden might seem crazy to some - talking to thin air, acting peculiar around cemeteries, etc. - he is far from it. The voices inside Aden Stone's head are real. He has four human souls living inside him - Eve can time-travel, Julian can raise the dead, Elijah can tell the future and Caleb can possess another human. He has spent his life from one institution to the next, being prescribed all sorts of pills and at the mercy of his doctors and caretakers.    Now, living …

Somehow, I expected a boy meets girl supernatural love story along the lines of Twilight and many others. Well, that is sort of what I got, but I got so much more. Not only does Aden have one power, he has four, each with a soul attached that talks to him in his head and makes others think he's crazy. Then of course, there are werewolves and vampires and High School. You just cannot go wrong with this story. The author takes many genres and throws them into the pot and makes it work, excellantly! …

Aden Stone wishes he was just a normal guy. Instead, he's spent the majority of his life shuffled in and out of various foster homes and mental institutions, all because for some reason, he's got four souls living inside him aside from his own. Aden doesn't know how they got there or how to get rid of them, so in the meantime, he just has to deal with four distinct voices constantly babbling inside his head and the side effects of each soul's unique ability, to time travel, predict the future, raise …

Nothing like a little zombie action to start off a novel, Intertwined, the latest Young Adult novel by Gena Showalter, starts off with a bang - or maybe a grunt. Aden Stone finds himself in a cemetery, big no no for him, since he happens to have the ability to raise the dead - and once they are raised, well they do what every zombie likes to do - eat some human flesh. I know what you are thinking, `Zombies, that is like soo last week," so lets add some ghost whispering, and then some vampires, how …

Gena Showalter's Intertwined has a fascinating premise: Aden, the main character, has four other souls living within his head whom he constantly hears. Each soul has a special "gift", such as time traveling or raising the dead, but it's Aden's habit of conversing aloud with the souls that has landed him in mental facilities and foster homes since the age of three. Needless to say, it's been almost impossible for Aden to make friends, and the fact that he knows exactly how he will die (thanks to …

Aden Stone hears voices in his head, four voices to be precise. As a result he has been shipped to several different foster homes and several different mental institutions throughout his entire life. The voices in his head are loud and constant and Aden communicates with them regularly by speaking out loud to them. To his psychiatrists and people around him he appears to be schizophrenic; but he's not. The voices in his head are real; they are souls trapped in his body, each one containing a special …

Aden has a reputation for being a little nuts. These ignorant, ordinary humans have no idea that Aden is actually sharing his body with four other people. There's Julian who raises the dead, Elijah who can predict the future, Eve who has the ability to jump from one time period to another and Caleb who can inhabit other bodies. This is a lot for a teenager to handle.     When Aden moves into a new town and attends a new school, he is pleasantly surprised when he meets Mary Ann. …
