A Want So Wicked is the enthralling sequel to A Need So Beautiful. The story begins with Charlotte waking up inside a new body – as a girl named Elise. Elise Landon has no idea she is really Charlotte. She has a whole lifetime of memories all her own. But suddenly she starts seeing someone else’s memories and realises there is something very different about her.

When Elise takes a job at a local restaurant events start to take place that have her not only wondering who she really is, but also who the people in her life truly are. Even though Elise doesn’t know who or what she is, that doesn’t stop the shadows from coming after her.

A Want So Wicked blew me away. It was even better than the first book. It is definitely is a bit darker than A Need So Beautiful but that’s what makes it so great. The plot was very intriguing and moved at a steady pace, keeping me captivated from the first page to the last. It once again has a large focus on the timeless battle between good and evil but this time we see alot more into choices and their consequences.

I loved that Onika returns in this book and that we get to see some of her past and the reason she turned to the shadows. All of the characters are so emotionally complex and realistic that I couldn’t help but connect with and empathize with them. I was also really happy to see Harlin again in this story along with a lot of new important characters such as Abe, Elise’s father the pastor, Elise’s sister Lucy, and the old lady. But I think my favorite part of the story has to be the ending because it’s just so unexpected.

If your a fan of paranormal romance, angels, demons, and intrigue, then I highly recommend this series. Just make sure to read A Need So Beautiful first so that you can have a full understanding of the characters in A Want So Wicked.
