This book was a good collection of several types of supernatural. There are vampires, werewolves, witches, fairies, goblins, demons and about anything else that goes bump in the night. Aden has had a tough life. For as long as he can remember he has had four other voices, people, in his head. They are his friends and constant companions. Until he meets Mary Ann. The voices in his head stop. The first part of the book was really great. It got a little slow in the middle, and a little repetitive. The ending was very good, but maybe a little rushed. The story goes back and forth between Aden's view and Mary Ann's view, so you get two sides of the story which is nice. It was overall a good book and I am anxious to read the second one! 4 out of 5 stars.
I was a little nervous to read this book. I've read (and re-read) all of the author's other books, but it took me a while to buy this one. I'm glad I did buy it, because it's not the stereotypical 'vamp/were' theme that's been popping up in the young adult section since the 'Twilight' hype. This book was not only funny, it also pulled at the heart-strings as well. I really felt bad for Aden throughout the book. But I digress, this book was amazing, and I recommend it to adults and young adults. It's a nice change from the Twilight stuff, seriously.
