Publisher's Summary

Most 16-year-olds have friends. Aden Stone has four human souls living inside him: One can time travel. One can raise the dead. One can tell the future. And one can possess another human.With no other family and a life spent in and out of institutions, Aden and the souls have become friends. But now they're causing him all kinds of trouble. Like, he'll blink and suddenly he's a younger Aden, reliving the past. One wrong move, and he'll change the future. Or he'll walk past a total stranger and know how and when she's going to die. He's so over it. All he wants is peace. And then he meets a girl who quiets the voices. Well, as long as he's near her. Why? Mary Ann Gray is his total opposite. He's a loner; she has friends. He doesn't care what anyone thinks; she tries to make everyone happy. And while he attracts the paranormal, she repels it. For her sake, he should stay away. But it's too late....Somehow, they share an inexplicable bond of friendship. A bond about to be tested by a werewolf shape-shifter who wants Mary Ann for his own, and a vampire princess Aden can't resist. Two romances, both forbidden. Still, the four will enter a dark underworld of intrigue and danger - but not everyone will come out alive....

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 fell 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.

The Questions?

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.

A credit not very well spent.

I was disappointed with this book, but not because it was meant for teens and I'm not. The problem for me was too many unbelievable and implausible things in the 4 main character's behavior. Nobody gets angry and talks to their father the way the human female lead does in this novel. Much less walks out of the house saying she's going to go stay with someone else. Yeah right! That whole seen was so completely unbelievable I had to stop listening for a while. Then there's the male lead of the story who has all these powers, one of which, he nor we as the reader, is aware of because the author doesn't really write the incident into the story. We are just told about it by a vampire girl, (another lead character), after pretty much every supernatural creature in lore comes looking for the male lead as if he had gotten on a phone and called them. In the just plain dumb category, our hero seeks help from the previously mentioned human girl. Only the help turns out to be something he could have just looked up on the internet then investigated for himself. He's certainly written smartly enough to have done this on his own. I guess when you're writing for teens the story and plot simply don't have to make as much sense as it would if you were writing for an adult.

The pace of the book opens does well and promises some good action. Then it fizzles in the middle only to get good at the end, but the author screws us again with the ending. The book is continued and the story doesn't have a satisfying ending in this, the first novel. The reader is just left hanging with unresolved plot points. I really do think Gena Showalter is a talented writer, but I wouldn't give this book a shot unless you really like the genre AND the second book is available so that you can buy them together. Just listening to the first book will leave you very unsatisfied with how you spent your credit.

Also, is the reader doing helium? Her voice sounds very childish
