“More action-packed and just as compelling, A Want So Wicked is a worthy sequel to last year’s gorgeous A Need So Beautiful. Led by a strong and grounded heroine, Young’s characters are caught in a destiny of loss and forgetting. Their journey will draw you in.” (Kendare Blake, author of Anna Dressed in Blood)
“Fans of the first and others who enjoy gothic fantasy-suspense will relish this sequel with its archetypal triangle of Forgotten, Shadows, and Seers.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))
“Packed with mystery, unexpected plot twists, and enough romance to satisfy even the most diehard Twi-hards, this novel is just as riveting as its predecessor.” (School Library Journal)
Praise for A NEED SO BEAUTIFUL: “A clever and well-written fantasy.” (Booklist (starred review))
“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)
“A gripping supernatural romance…An imaginative twist on the timeless battle between dark and light.” (Kirkus Reviews)
“A beautiful, poignant, and gripping tale of love and sacrifice.” (Carrie Ryan, New York Times bestselling author of The Forest of Hands and Teeth)
“A Need So Beautiful is equal parts haunting mystery, edge-of-your-seat thrill ride, and epic love story. Charlotte’s story captured me-and still hasn’t let me go!” (Kimberly Derting, author of The Body Finder)
From the Back Cover
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?

A Want So Wicked picks up where A Need So Beautiful left off. We're thrown right into Elise's life, all the while knowing where she came from, even though Elise doesn't have any idea. It was a little easy to pick up on the good and bad in the novel, but that didn't make me enjoy it any less.
Harlin was even more wonderful in this book, and even Abe's charms worked on me every once in a while. Lucy was a fantastic secondary character. I felt for the relationship between Elise and Lucy, it's the type of sister relationship I wish more novels had.
Elise had me tearing up. As much as Charlotte's story pulled at me, Elise's did tenfold. Her confusion around her life and feels was so well written, it made my chest hurt. I wished more than anything the story would end differently than I knew it had to.
The ending was perfect and yet I hated it (in a good way). I'm just going to hope and wish there will be a third novel. I want more of Harlin and Elise/Charlotte's story.
My only criticism of this book would be the ending, and not because it was disappointing, but because it seemed rushed. So much of the book is spent building up to the ending and then the climax is a final quick burst. I sincerely hope, though I have heard otherwise, there will be a third book to round out this story!
Altogether a solid read. I will definitely finish the series.
