Unraveled (Intertwined Series) by Gena Showalter

I really like Gena Showalter's Intertwined series.  They have beautiful covers and the story line is always exciting.  Unraveled is the second book in the series.  Here is the Goodreads blurb:

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….

I really liked this second book in the series.  I have to say that as much as I love Aden, I also adore Riley.  The girls are kinda meh for me but the plot doesn't disappoint.  Poor Aden never seems to get a break.  Just when things are looking up, something bad happens.  I also am glad to see that there isn't going to be a formula where Aden loses one of the souls at the end of each book.  I like that the plot just happens as it happens.  This series is really good.  All the main characters are interesting and the supporting characters give richness to the story.  There is a fair amount of violence and sexual content but nothing that you wouldn't find in most after school specials or Lifetime movies.  I highly recommend this series for readers over 14 yrs.

Unraveled earns 3 Fairies from me for the interesting life that Aden leads.
