Wicked Hunger (Book One: SomeOne Wicked This Way Comes)
“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.

“Power is what he craves. He collects it so he can turn it into wicked glory, the glory of ruling everything and everyone.”
Vanessa and Zander Roth sit balanced on the edge of impending death and unthinkable power. The Eroi hunting them hide in the distance waiting for their chance to strike, but the Godlings who have taken over the Roths’ lives keep them at bay for now. Their protection is the one benefit to having them around.
Even though the Godling training that the arrogant and insufferable David provides Van and Zander is indeed improving their control, his methods are cruel and harsh. Van is barely able to restrain her anger when it comes to David. Zander, however, embraces the training because it is his only hope of redeeming himself after falling into Ivy’s trap and putting his family’s lives in danger.
In search of a distraction from everything Godling, Van focuses on the nagging feeling that something terrible is on the horizon. The intuition strengthens into frightening visions and leaves Van fearing the future. She is desperate to protect her brother, but with her sixteenth birthday looming and the eruption of the full strength of her hunger on its way, she has her own problems to deal with.
Redemption and protection both take a back seat when a shocking discovery puts everything they have worked for in jeopardy. The choice between safety and freedom has never been more important, and in the end…they may not have a choice at all.
Faced with holding up their end of an impossible bargain, Van and Zander must choose between playing it safe and risking everything.
Zander has failed to reproduce the spectacular show of power David is so desperate to see again, which puts him on the outs with his supposed mentor. In order to keep their bargain with the Eroi, he's forced to work more closely with them, which means being subjected to Ivy's mind-stealing presence again. Fighting his hunger becomes secondary to convincing her the Eroi are wrong about her purpose.
Once the most detested of the Roth siblings, Van has now become David's pet. It's clear he intends to take her into his inner circle, but at what price? Van is forced to decide what she's willing to do in order to keep her family safe. If becoming David's protege is the only way... can she live up to his expectations without losing herself completely?
