“Two months after dying, Graylee Perez wakes up in her twin sister Charlene’s body. As a witch, can anyone blame her mother for attempting to bring her back to life? Now Gray’s stuck sharing her sister’s body every 24 hours. Raj McKenna is rumored to meddle in the black arts, not to mention he’s after Gray’s invisibility spell and worse—her heart. But Raj might be the only one powerful enough to save Gray from fading away forever… The race is on for Gray to find a way back inside her own body before Charlene purges her from existence.”
Charlene and Gray are two twins, identical in personality but completely opposite in all other regards. When it comes to boyfriends, clothing and their abilities – educational or magical – they wildly differ. Gray is struggling to cast spells, until she realises that Charlene is blocking her power, a discovery that hints at Charlene’s cruel nature. But the depths of her malice don’t become apparent until she ‘accidentally’ kills Gray. Distraught and desperate, their mother tries finds a way to bring Gray back to the life – but the only solution is for both twins to share Charlene’s body.
Gray struggles to adjust to the change, forced into Charlene’s revealing outfits and to keep up appearances with Charlene’s smarmy boyfriend. As time goes on, she realises that Charlene is none too happy with the arrangement either – so much so that she’s planning to purge Gray from her body completely, which will kill her. The only one who can help is Raj, a seemingly twisted, self-centred and arrogant schoolmate who has connections with a powerful warlock. Will he be able to get Gray out of Charlene’s body before her sister removes all trace of Gray – forever?
Entangled has an interesting and fresh concept. It’s tied up a little hurriedly, but is on the whole a well-written novel from a promising author.
