**This book is the sequel to A Need So Beautiful. If you have read the first book, this review is spoiler free.**
When I finished the last line of A Need So Beautiful, I felt like the wind had been knocked out of me. It has been a long wait for book two and I was not disappointed. We meet a new Forgotten, Elise, but this story is a little more complicated. Many of the same players are back, but Elise is special and much of the book involves her struggle to understand who she is and what it means for the people around her. You will feel a bit like a Seer yourself as you watch the story unfold, already knowing what is at stake. There are new threats from the Shadows, and some old ones, as well. The combination of old and new characters made this quite the page turner.
A Want So Wicked was a fantastic follow up to A Need So Beautiful. Like its predecessor, I couldn’t put it down and I started and finished it in one day. (I may have stayed up pretty late that night.) I didn’t think I could get as attached to someone that wasn’t Charlotte, but Elise, while different, was just as engaging. Her circumstances were different, of course, but the way that she is written will draw you in. What to say about Harlin? He is the same, but a little more damaged and still recovering from his loss several months earlier. However, he is as kind and appealing as he was before, and it was so great to have him back for this book. I think one of the most appealing things about this story was the fact that we met new people, but still felt like our friends from book one were with us. Suzanne Young has written a sequel that is emotional, adventurous and highly entertaining. Don’t start this book too late at night because you will want to stay up way past your bedtime just to finish it!
I received this ARC in exchange for my honest review.
