Description

In the sequel to Suzanne Young's A Need So Beautiful, seventeen-year-old Elise 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. Readers of the Sweet Evil trilogy will love A Want So Wicked, a wildly romantic thriller that explores the nature of good and evil.

Review quote

"Although the message of this exquisite fantasy is deeply and spiritually profound, the author manages to convey it without sounding preachy or pretentious...The ending is beautiful, although bittersweet. A unique take on the age-old struggle of good vs. evil."--School Library Journal
