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, 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 underwold of intrigue and danger—but not everyone will come out alive…

This review was updated on May 11, 2012.
What can I say about a boy wearing regular clothes? At first glance, I think he’s hot. After I read the book, I kind of imagine him holding two silver daggers, which only brings me more attracted to him.
He forced himself to focus. Several yards away, the headstone teetered back and forth before tumbling to the ground and shattering. Rain had fallen this morning, and droplets sprayed in every direction. Handfuls of dirt soon joined them, flying through the air as a disgustingly gray hand poked its way free.
First off, Emilia did give me this book and thought I would like it. Secondly, I want to say, Emilia how dare you give me this book?! I didn't think I would like it but then I fell in love with it. Emilia, you have to get me the second book or I will never forgive you.

Now I usually don't get to crazy about romances, especially paranormal romances, but this one had other things that made the book swoon worthy.

Aden Stone has four souls stuck inside him. He doesn’t know how they got there; he just knows he has to live with them. That would suck, since they never really shut up and they have some unnatural powers. These types of things get him in a lot of trouble. People think he’s crazy. Since, they are always talking inside his head, he talks back to them. If you saw someone talking to themselves or maybe even arguing with themselves, you would marked them crazy right away. Not only that, but the weird things that happen around Aden because of these four souls. No wonder he pretty much hates his life.

Then he meets Mary Ann Gray. The girl, who quiets the voices and takes their powers away. He does everything he can just to be near her, so he can have a normal life. But then his and Mary’s lives began to become more abnormal.

A werewolf is following Mary and talking to her, inside her head that is, and Mary thinks she’s going crazy. Aden has now a vampire princess, who he has seen in one of his visions, and he is willing to do anything for. They discover that when Mary and Aden first got close together, they sent out a power that is now calling every supernatural being to them. Their lives are now in danger and so are those around them.

I fell hard for this book, and can’t believe I never gave this a chance. I can’t wait to devour the sequel.

Even though, I love Aden and his inner people, Mary Ann Gray was my favorite. She was able to take in all the strange things and accept them, even though she was totally freaking out in the inside. Great book and can't wait to continue on with the series.
Gena Showalter has a sequel already out for this book called Unraveled. The third book for the series is called Twisted which will be released August 30, 2011.
