Since coming to Crossroads, Oklahoma, former outcast Aden Stone has been living the good life. Never mind that one of his best friends is a werewolf, his girlfriend is a vampire princess who hungers for his blood, and he’s supposed to be crowned Vampire King—while still a human! Well, kind of. 
With four—oops, three now—human souls living inside his head, Aden has always been “different” himself. These souls can time-travel, raise the dead, possess another’s mind and, his least favorite these days, tell the future.
The forecast for Aden? A knife through the heart. 
Because a war is brewing between the creatures of the dark, and Aden is somehow at the center of it all. But he isn’t about to lie down and accept his destiny without a fight. Not when his new friends have his back, not when Victoria has risked her own future to be with him, and not when he has a reason to live for the first time in his life….

REVIEW
In this second installment of Intertwined series, the questions I was hoping to be answered, were in some ways answered.  I’ve known what’s Mary Anne’s power was – a Drainer.  But its origins, was still unanswered.  The romance is still there, and there’s a LOT of things in this installment that’s been introduced.  It is really fast paced in the sense that there were a lot on the main characters’ hands – a lot to take in and a lot of teleporting, it’s crazy.
These are the things/questions running through my mind on this book:
  • Vlad, the original vampire and king, father of Victoria is alive but still not kicking. I wonder what  kind of kicking will happen in the next chapters.
  • Mary Ann, finally knew her power (a Drainer), which is a threat to all living things since she sucks all energies.  Is there a possibility she would be able to control her power?  
  • The souls – Caleb, Julian and Elijah – who were these souls?  The mystery of the fourth soul, Eve, was solved, being Mary Ann’s mother, but what about the other three?
  • Caleb seems to be connected with the witches and have a strong desire for Marie, a witch.  What exactly is going on with these two?
  • I’m still curious what Aden said to Dr. Hennesy in one of their sessions when the doctor hypnotized him.
  • The Victoria-Draven challenge over Aden. Who will win?
  • Aden, the Summoner.  Aden, the beast tamer.  How does these two titles came to be? How was he able to have these powers?  Who are his parents? Victoria turned him in the end, but they have switched.  Victoria have the three souls, Aden has the beast.  What does that mean?
There are a lot of questions raised in this book and I hope to find them out in the incoming installments.  How many books in this series are we talking about?
