Description

ONE BY ONE, THEY'LL DIE...
Twenty years ago, wild child Jessie Brentwood vanished from St. Elizabeth's high school. Most in Jessie's tight circle of friends believed she simply ran away. Few suspected that Jessie was hiding a shocking secret-one that brought her into the crosshairs of a vicious killer....

UNTIL THERE'S NO ONE LEFT...
Two decades pass before a body is unearthed on school grounds and Jessie's old friends reunite to talk. Most are sure that the body is Jessie's, that the mystery of what happened to her has finally been solved. But soon, Jessie's friends each begin to die in horrible,
freak accidents that defy explanation....

BUT HER...
Becca Sutcliff has been haunted for years by unsettling visions of Jessie, certain her friend met with a grisly end. Now the latest deaths have her rattled. Becca can sense that an evil force is shadowing her too, waiting for just the right moment to strike. She feels like she's going crazy. Is it all a coincidence-or has Jessie's killer finally returned to finish what was started all those years ago?

    Wicked Game accomplishes the remarkable fete of being over the top, melodramatic at times, and utterly mundane and boring at other times. Unfortunately, there wasn’t a whole lot in between these two extremes.I knew I wouldn’t like this novel right from the opening scene. It was a dramatic scene, but it was so overwritten with cliché and forced melodrama. Instead of creating tension, it made me roll my eyes. There are times to turn up the intensity, but the execution from the authors was lacking. The characters were bland. Some were vanilla, and others were not remotely likeable. At the top of the list of the unlikeable (or maybe it was just the silly name they gave him) was The Third. I mean, who would call somebody The Third? I didn’t find the protagonist, Becca, at all likeable and I found her reaction to rejoicing after learning she was pregnant after literally her first date with her old high school sweetheart beyond unrealistic.The antagonist wasn’t so much a character as a cardboard cutout with no characteristics that resemble an actual human being. Bad guys are generally very difficult to get right, but this villain was especially poor. I can’t say there was much I liked about the novel and I would not recommend it.Carl Alves – author of The Invocation

    It's a paranormal thriller as well as a romance...heavier on the paranormal. It's also a very long book and it was sometimes made even longer by the author...for some unknown reason... repeating lines verbatim in several different chapters. In spite of that small flaw...the characters are well developed and, even with its length, you just have to find out what was going to happen. There were lots of twists and turns and lots and lots of red herrings to keep the reader in suspense. Many times I I thought I knew who did it, but I didn't actually figure that out until nearly the end. I always have felt that If a writer can keep the mystery going until the very end then they have done their best job. Any mystery and suspense or thriller fan will love this trilogy...and this is only book 1.

    This book is definitely forgettable. Half the book is about high school friends reuniting to rehash whether their friend Jessie left town or whether she really did die. Another 40% of the book is spent with a series of pointless deaths. The remaining pages of the book attempt to tie the story together but fails miserably. It kind of tells a story of incest and some man who is trying to kill two women who he thinks are the devil spawn but it doesn't really go into too much detail. The book is written by two authors and you can definitely tell when one person is dominating the writing more than the other person. I really disliked this book but felt the need to finish it. I would rate it at most a one out of five.
