Waiting on Wednesday: INTERTWINED by Gena Showalter

Jill over at Breaking the Spine started this and I believe that it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on. I have decided to participate because I have a list that can go on forever and ever and it is interesting to see what else others are "waiting" for also.

This week's selection is Intertwined by Gena Showalter. This book was my first WOW choice last January, but now that I have the cover art to go along with it, I believe that it deserves another posting. I am a big fan of this author and have read her other YA and paranormal romance novels. Then I read the premise of her new YA book and knew that I had to have this novel...NOW...and after you read it, you will want it also.


INTERTWINED by Gena Showlater
Hardcover: 496 pages
Publisher: Harlequin (September 1, 2009)

There’s something about the new guy at Crossroads High . . .

Most sixteen-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, for as long as he’s with 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. . . doomed. Still, the four will enter a dark underworld of intrigue and danger. . . but not everyone will come out alive. . .


WOW!!! This book sounds amazing and you can pre-order it HERE so...what are you waiting for :)

I'm all over this book. Gena is an amazing author. I've read just about all of her books. Her Atlantis series is my favorite but her Lords of the Underworld series is good too!

She's an author I can turn to and KNOW I'll be engrossed and completely satisfied while reading. She's the best!

And she's having a blog party this week! Head over and enter her contests:

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
