Wicked Quote: “Power is what he craves. He collects it so he can turn it into wicked glory, the glory of ruling everything and everyone. 

I just read the first book in this series, 19721475 Wicked Hunger, and absolutely loved it. You can read my review and get a little more info about this new series HERE. I love the covers also. That’s what made me request Wicked Hunger, and after I read the synopsis, I was sold. Glad that I did because this is a great series so far.

Brief Synopsis

Vanessa and Zander are good at lying. Their whole life is a giant web of deceit made in an effort to conceal the deadly secrets that plague their family. As if the Roth family need anything more to worry about, a vicious plot to expose Van and Zander for what they are is uncovered. When it becomes apparent that someone close to them is at the center of this devious plan, the fight to maintain control and keep their cover ensues. It’s a seemingly impossible battle because something is causing their powers to stir stronger than ever before… and it won’t stop until Van and Zander give in to their Wicked Hunger.


Van and Zander are forever resigned to the Wicked Hunger that lives within them. The hunger to cause pain to others. It is something that they have had to get control over for all of their lives. While Zander resorts to playing football to keep his hunger in check, Van dedicates herself to dancing and teaching others how to. When a new girl, Ivy, comes into school, she rattles the monster within them that is begging to be set free. Never have they had to fight so hard to control their hunger, than when she is in their proximity. Zander is drawn to Ivy, also, in a way that has nothing to do with his hunger. Or does it? Van just wants to find out what Ivy knows and why the girl is dead set on bringing her “differences” to light. She doesn’t trust her no further than she can throw her.

This is absolutely one of the best stories I’ve read pertaining to this subject. Well, it’s the only story I’ve read like this. It’s very well written and the characters just jump out of the pages. I love how the story moved and kept me on the edge of my seat. When Van and Zander find out the truth, their lives change forever. Having lived and believed that there is no rhyme or reason to their hunger, it especially changes Zander. Van has always believed the opposite, that their was a purpose to their hunger. Many interesting characters along the way.

Very good start to a great series. I, for one, can’t wait to read the next book!
