A Want So Wicked
Author: Suzanne Young
Genre: Young Adult
Format: ARC
Publisher: Balzer+Bray
Release Date: 6-26-12
Elise is a normal seventeen-year-old girl until the day she wakes up in a desert park, with no idea who she is. After that episode, her life takes a bizarre turn. She’s experiencing unexpected flashes of insight into people’s lives—people she’s never met before. Strangers frighten her with warnings about the approaching Shadows. And although Elise has never had a boyfriend, she suddenly finds herself torn between two handsome but very different young men: Abe, the charming bad boy whose effect on her both seduces and frightens her, and the mysterious Harlin, who’s new to town but with whom Elise feels an urgent, elemental connection—almost as if they are soul mates. Now Elise begins to question everything about her life. Why do these guys both want her so desperately? What are the Shadows? Why does the name Charlotte inspire a terrifying familiarity? And who is Elise, really? – Goodreads

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!
