I explain AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH There Its not coherent, just like I suspected lolQ Is that a good or bad ahhhhhhhh A Bad, a very bad ahhhhhh I think its one of the most infuriating books I have ever read It made me want to cry in frustration, and bang my head against something hard preferably a wall But I didn t because everyone was sleeping at the time lolHalfway through the book I strongly considered stopping right there But I didn t because I didn t want to give up on the book just yet I think somewhere deep down I was hoping for the book to get better Man, I should ve just stopped there However, it did get a little interesting, for a little bit.I really got into it when Aden possessed the witch s body to get information I was like, Yes Finally this is getting interesting This was like halfway into the book From there until the part where they were in the cave with the witches and the fairies, vampires, and werewolves were outside of it fighting, I was happy This was towards the end of the book and I thought, Huh I think I m really going to like this ending and the book, for that matter after all Boy was I wrong After the incident with the witches and the fairies, Mary Ann had to leave town because the vampires and werewolves wanted to kill her view spoiler because they found out that she was a drainer hide spoiler That I can deal with.But you remember Elijah s oh so famous vision about Aden getting stabbed in the heart in a street Well it finally came true OMG We all knew that was inevitable, but Aden didn t even fight the guy who stabbed him And Victoria did nothing as well She could ve used her voodoo voice like Mary Ann calls it or something But noooo, nothing And that wasn t the worst part view spoiler After all that happened, Victoria took Aden back somewhere I m not even sure where and he asked some other vampire I think to turn Aden into a vampire This was me from this point until the end No, no, no, no, no, no, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I think maybe I could ve handled this, even though I wish he would ve stayed human.And it gets worse When Aden woke up, Victoria told him that she had the souls inside her head now, and that the beast that was originally inside Victoria was now most likely inside Aden My reaction WHAT THE HELL NOOOOOOOOOOO This is wrong Victoria only transfused her blood into his body to turn him, this wasn t supposed to happen This is soooooo wrong The souls belong with Aden, for crying out loud And why must everyone be asleep when I m wanting to hit throw something almost cries out in frustration I know, I know, that s a little extreme But thats how I felt takes a deep, calming breath hide spoiler The idea of souls being trapped inside of someone for apparently no reason that we know of yet is fantastic But this series was very disappointing After I read the first book, I decided to give this one a chance.Q Was it worth it A Not really.Plus, I didn t really like any of the characters That s weird because I usually always like at least one, and if the book is lucky enough,than one Victoria Never liked her She creeps me out, and I just plainly cant stand her Don t ask me why, cause truthfully, I don t know.Riley Don t care for him.Mar Ann Umm she s okay.Aden I wish I could say that I love him, but I cant I don t hate him either he s alright.And okay, maybe I lied, a little I actually do like some of the characters.Q Oh Which ones A The souls I love them And they re the reason as to why I even bothered reading this book Actually, they re the only reason why I read this book Unfortunately though, they were hardly mentioned For crying out loud I thought this was supposed to be about Aden, the souls, who they were before they died, and how in the world they got inside Aden in the first place I felt like they were put on the back burner for most of the book Grrrrr takes another deep breath And I hate myself because I m very tempted to read the third book I think in order for me to actually like this series, some things would need to be fixed in the following book 1 view spoiler That part about Aden loosing the souls, I don t know, miraculously has to be taken back Maybe turn it into a dream, or something similar a delusion I just cant accept that I cant hide spoiler 2 The vampires, werewolves, witches, goblins, fairies, elves, unicorns and everything else needs to go away so that 3 THEY CAN FOCUS ON THE SOULS

    As much as I adore these series, I can t stand it I just find the characters unbelievably unbelievable, and the only thing that kept me going was to find out what was gonna happen in the end Now that I have, I probably will end up reading the next book too Should be intereting.

    I read the first book in this series and enjoyed it enough that I wanted to read this next book in this series I picked up a copy back when it was released I started reading it and got about half way However something happened and my interest got lost along the way I stopped reading and this book ended up in my long pile of to be read books I would pass this book many times and thought I need to pick this book up again and finish it I finally did and at this time I started from the beginni I read the first book in this series and enjoyed it enough that I wanted to read this next book in this series I picked up a copy back when it was released I started reading it and got about half way However something happened and my interest got lost along the way I stopped reading and this book ended up in my long pile of to be read books I would pass this book many times and thought I need to pick this book up again and finish it I finally did and at this time I started from the beginning as it had been so long ago since I read this book Well I did get about half way again but this time it seemed that it took me a lot longer to get to the half way mark over this book and jumped to the last few chapters To be honest the ending was not as I had hoped and I was kind of glad that I had not spent all of my time reading this book to get to this ending Even though I lost interest in this series, I still do enjoy reading this author s books

    One of the reasons I loved the first novel in this series, Intertwined, was because it was the ultimate paranormal read You like vampires, it s got em Werewolves Got those too Fairies, witches, goblins, demons you betcha It s like a creature overload and I love it Unraveled didn t disappoint Intertwined wasof an introduction novel you meet Aden, lean about his abilities and you meet the three other characters Victoria, Mary Ann and Riley Unraveled is a lotaction And One of the reasons I loved the first novel in this series, Intertwined, was because it was the ultimate paranormal read You like vampires, it s got em Werewolves Got those too Fairies, witches, goblins, demons you betcha It s like a creature overload and I love it Unraveled didn t disappoint Intertwined wasof an introduction novel you meet Aden, lean about his abilities and you meet the three other characters Victoria, Mary Ann and Riley Unraveled is a lotaction And revelations I thought I knew these characters after book one but that was only the tip of the iceberg Whew I m a little heartbroken at some of those revelations I have to admit that, I was absolutely enthralled in Riley and Mary Ann s story Aden and Victoria, who Not that the parts about Aden and Victoria were boring, there were quite the opposite actually, and that ending, holy wow But I was justinterested in reading about Riley and Mary Ann, and I did not get nearly enough of them Even though this book is a little on the chunky side, it took me no time at all to read Mainly because I could not put it down Something was always happening to our fabulous foursome There are so many plot threads flying around, yet Showalter manages to weave them all back together You d think I wouldn t be surprised by the magnificence of it, I read so many of her novels And the ending I can t even describe my frustration How could you do that to me The one thing that knocked it down from a five star to a four, was because I thought it lacked any resolution sure we learned some new things and characters are taking different roads but nothing was really accomplished SPOILER I mean, sure, Aden got the witches to say this meeting is called to order and his friends didn t die but that s all I get Really Poo END SPOILER Overall, Unraveled is an captivating, action packed read full of all my favorite creatures I only demand one itsy, bitsy, teeny, tiny thing MORE RILEY

    I m beginning to think I need to eat my words when I say that the second book usually disappoints As of late, that has so not been the case After reading Intertwined, I might not have read Unraveled had it not been for that fact that I won a copy of it I would have missed an excellent addition to a series I will be continuing Poor Aden All he wants to do is have a normal life, attend high school, etc But, now he s the king of the vampires He has to make decision regarding blood slaves, cha I m beginning to think I need to eat my words when I say that the second book usually disappoints As of late, that has so not been the case After reading Intertwined, I might not have read Unraveled had it not been for that fact that I won a copy of it I would have missed an excellent addition to a series I will be continuing Poor Aden All he wants to do is have a normal life, attend high school, etc But, now he s the king of the vampires He has to make decision regarding blood slaves, challenges, and finding a Queen It was not surprising no one would accept that all he wanted was Victoria Not to mention he has to deal with the witches His abilities are really starting to come through, and I find him a really interesting character It s no wonder everybody wants a piece of him Speaking of Victoria, I liked learningabout her and why she is the way she is She seemslike a person now and not just a character throw into the story.I LOVED Mary Anne and Riley in this story Their romance is sweet and sometimes raw and emotional I like the new development of what Mary Anne really is I also really loved how that didn t matter to Riley I wonder how much trouble he will be in for what he has done to protect her It should make for some interesting subject matter in the next installment.I also enjoyed the involvement of the witches and the fae in this one I love it when a story twists how you normally think of a mythical creature although the fae weren t that different I did think the ending with the witches was really anti climatic It was way to abrupt, but I guess the author felt there werepressing matters at hand I really enjoyed the ending It was not I was expecting I can t wait for the next one
