Book Spotlight and Giveaway: Wicked Hunger by: DelSheree Gladden


Book/Series title: Wicked Hunger/SomeOne Wicked This Way Comes
Author: DelSheree Gladden
Genre: YA Urban Fantasy
Length: 95,000 words/240 pages


Synopsis:

“Save him and hurt him, don’t save him and hurt him. Pain, either way. Delicious pain. Hunger will be the only one that wins. Hunger always wins.” 

Vanessa and Zander Roth 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. 

Zander will do anything to forget his mistakes, including pushing everyone away. He was barely surviving in his self-forced solitude before Ivy Guerra entered his life. The new girl in school, with her pink-striped hair and unyielding curiosity, incites something wicked inside Zander that can only be blamed on his family genes. Now Zander is forced to fight an internal war and make a choice between loving Ivy Guerra and killing her. 

Vanessa wants nothing more than to shed the strange powers she wields and be normal. Because if Van were normal, she’d be able to have normal things… Like a relationship with the boy she’s been secretly in love with for years. Unfortunately, her life is anything but ordinary. That boy who owns her heart just happens to be her brother’s kryptonite and a potential liability for her entire family. When choices between love and family loyalty have to be made, Van finds herself faced with an impossible decision. 

As if the Roth family needs 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. 

Wicked Hunger is the first book in the all-new paranormal series, Someone Wicked This Way Comes.

Blurb:

Vanessa and Zander Roth have spent their lives battling an uncontrollable hunger for pain and suffering that will either gain them limitless power or lead them to their deaths.

I loved this book! Read it a couple of months ago, and it has stuck with me. Zander & Vanessa are "wicked", yet also incredibly sympathetic. Nicely done!

This book sounds amazing! I would love to enter. My email is kaiuonalanilewis@gmail.com. And I would have to say my favorite ya book is Inquest by Delsheree. The whole trilogy, in fact is amazing. I am currently reading the third book of the trilogy and I cannot put it down! Like all of Delsheree's other books, Wicked Hunger, has to be a really good book.

I'm a big fan of the YA genre and have read most of the popular series out there (Divergent, The Selection, Twilight, The Mortal Instruments to name a few). That said - I'm definitely a DelSheree fan and this new series sounds like a perfect addition to my holiday reading. I loved her Inquest series so much I devoured them in a couple of days, then dove into the Invisible books and get excited every time I see an update for book #2 (a current favorite and one I recommend to others). nancelwilliams@hotmail.com
