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 . "

In the second installment of Showalter's Intertwined series, Aden and Mary Ann continue their breathless adventures in a world where, as Aden puts it, all myths are true. Aden has unexpectedly succeeded to the throne of the vampires, which only his vampire girlfriend Victoria seems willing to accept. It's enough to make every fairy in the vicinity want to kill Aden, in fact, despite fairies' natural propensity to protect humans. Meanwhile, Mary Ann is developing confidence in her relationship with werewolf Riley, but a pall is cast over their romance by a witches' death curse scheduled to manifest in five days. These are the simple problems. Showalter layers on complexities, and readers may feel frustrated as she attempts to recap the entire first book while simultaneously launching the next stage of the manifold plot. The frenetic tempo eventually settles, and though readers may have lingering questions about some aspects of the world Showalter constructs, the narrative develops clarity and romantic tension. But not closure: there is, inevitably, a further installment to come. Ages 13–up. (Sept.)
