Twisted by Gena Showalter
SIXTEEN-YEAR-OLD ADEN STONE HAS HAD A HELL OF A WEEK. HE’S BEEN:
Tortured by angry witches. Hypnotized by a vengeful faery. Spied on by the most powerful vampire in existence. And, oh, yeah. Killed – twice.
His vampire girlfriend might have brought him back to life, but he’s never felt more out of control. There’s a darkness within him, something taking over . . . changing him. Worse, because he was meant to die, death now stalks him at every turn. Any day could be his last.
Once upon a time, the three souls trapped inside his head could have helped him. He could have protected himself. But as the darkness grows stronger, the souls grow weaker – just like his girlfriend. The more vampire Aden becomes, the more human Victoria becomes, until everything they know and love is threatened.
Life couldn’t get any worse. Could it?
Aren't these covers absolutely fantabulous?
This book initially caught my interest with the "psychic abilities" phenomenon and I thought that maybe this book would be a more modern version of Dark Visions by L.J. Smith. It was nothing like it.
The beginning of the story starts out with the overused boarding school and the girl-who-thinks-she's-a-freak-and-who-doesn't-know-what's-really-happening-to-her routine. Now don't get me wrong, sometimes this routine isn't bad, and here it isn't horrible either, it's just predictable. The new girl meets the bad boy and BOOM! an instant connection. I personally didn't feel like this connection was well connected.
Violet is a little clueless, but otherwise, she's a likable character. She's on the school fencing team which I really like about her character development because with all of these female characters in YA paranormal romance, they hardly ever participate in any after school activities. Aiden doesn't seem like the dark, tortured soul Ms. Cook tries to make him out to be, in fact he reminds me of Aiden from Being Human, who you sometimes just want to yell at and pull out your hair in frustration whenever you listen to him.
The plotline like the boarding school routine was predictable. I never felt like I didn't know what was coming. Also, when reading this book I found a strong resemblance to Twilight. Almost everything about it screamed Edward Cullen!
I know it sounds like I've been dissing this book tremendously, but it actually was a decent read. I encourage you to pick it up from your local library or borrow it from a friend, but I wouldn't waste your money buying it.
