Intertwined by Gena Showalter

Showalter, Gena. Intertwined. Harlequin Teen. September 2009. (ARC provided by B&T)

This was a decent book. I liked the multiple story lines (2 couples). I normally don't like the complication, but it worked. You have Aden who has 4 souls living in his head. He can also raise the dead and enter others' bodies. Then there's Mary Ann. She calms everyone down. When Aden's around her, the voices in his head shut up. When Aden and Mary Ann first meet, they cause a power surge that brings out all sorts of creatures. Witches, goblins, demons, fairies, vampires, werewolves—they all come to call. Not good in your average mortal town. Aden's love interest is Victoria, a vampire princess. Mary Ann's is Riley, Victoria's werewolf protector. The ending was a bit abrupt, but I'm hoping for a sequel. Best way to describe the book: Think The Silver Kiss meets Blood and Chocolate.
