Vanessa and Zander Roth are good at lying. They have to be when they are hiding a deadly secret. Day after day, they struggle to rein in their uncontrollable hunger for pain and suffering in order to live normal lives. Things only get worse when Ivy Guerra appears with her pink-striped hair and secrets. The vicious hunger Ivy inspires is frightening, not to mention suspicious. Vanessa’s instincts are rarely wrong, so when they tell her that Ivy’s appearance is a sign of bad things to come, she listens. She becomes determined to expose Ivy’s secrets. Vanessa tries to warn her brother, but Zander is too enamored with Ivy to pay attention to her conspiracy theories. One of them is right about Ivy … but if they lose control of their hunger, it won’t matter who is right and who is wrong. One little slip, and they’ll all be dead
About the Author
I live in New Mexico with my husband and two children. I love expressing my creativity through writing and painting and I get a lot of my inspiration from my family and from the culture and beauty of New Mexico. I write mainly Young Adult urban fantasy, but my writing interests are ever expanding. I am also currently in the Dental Hygiene Program at San Juan College, so 90% of my waking hours are devoted to thinking about teeth for the time being!
I loved Wicked Hunger. I’ve never read anything written by Delsheree Gladden before, but I’m gonna start soon.
Delsheree writes for YA and as a co-YA author, I’m extremely picky about some YA books. Some of them don’t capture their characters the way YA speak of today, and then they end up sounding a lot like grown ups. I didn’t find this with Wicked Hunger.
Vanessa and Zander were two really strong developed characters and Delsheree’s writing style made the novel an easy read.
At first I have to admit, it sounded like another vampire story, but when I came to the part that it’s a family curse, I couldn’t put it down. She put’s you in both Vanessa and Zander’s head and I know writing male pov isn’t easy for women to do. I think she really did well with Zander. He didn’t sound as if he was created by a female and I just have to say WELL DONE DELSHEREE.
Story plot, I’m not going to give anything away. It is a book well written and should be bought. A must read for YA, Supernatural and Paranormal lovers.
I promise you will sit at the edge of your chair, with all the lights on with this one. It has a bit of everything in it.
Awesome story Delsheree, and I can’t wait to read the second one.
