"Wicked Fallout is a twisty cat and mouse psychological thriller that will keep you turning pages right up to the unexpected end. A creepy mix of horror and psychological insight, Charron takes you into the mind of a killer and doesn’t let go."
~Eileen Cook, Author of WITH MALICE
Convicted of six murders when she was just fifteen, the notorious Ryann Wilkanson hasn’t been able to act on her darkest, deadliest urges for twelve years. She’s exhausted her appeals and has little hope of ever getting out of prison and back to hunting.
Until a media-hungry legal team mounts a campaign to do the impossible—get her immediately released with a commuted sentence.
Forensic psychiatrist Nancy Clafin has mere weeks to evaluate Ryann’s current mental state against her grisly past to determine if she’s changed. But under the shadow of her own questionable history, it’s not easy to separate her personal life from her professional duty.
At least that’s what Ryann is counting on.
Behind the cold steel doors of a Colorado maximum-security prison, will Nancy find a cold-blooded killer or a newly redeemed woman determined to right her past wrongs?
**This novel can be enjoyed as a standalone or as part of the Pretty Wicked series.

Reviewed by Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers' Favorite Wicked Fallout by Kelly Charron is Book 2 of the Pretty Wicked series. Ryann Wilkinson has been in prison for 12 years, convicted of the murders of six people. She has kept her nose clean, hiding her dark urges, seeking the day when she can start hunting again. She has failed every appeal, but she has just one more hope. A legal team has decided to take her case, to attempt to have her sentence commuted and have her released immediately. Nancy Clafin is a forensic psychiatrist and her job is to evaluate Ryann, to determine if she has changed during her time in incarceration. What will Nancy find – a cold killer who will never change her ways or a woman who is repentant for her crimes and has changed? Will Nancy recommend release? Has Ryann really changed or is she playing a clever game? Wicked Fallout (Pretty Wicked Book 2) by Kelly Charron is a great book. Although it is a sequel, I believe that this can be read as a standalone book; there is sufficient background from the first book given in this one. The story is told from two points of view – the psychiatrist and Ryann. It is written in the first person from both perspectives and this makes it feel as though you are listening to each person telling their story. The detail is amazing, very descriptive, drawing you into the story so you live it as you read it. It is a bit gruesome in places, but nothing that you wouldn’t expect to find in a book like this. This is an exceptionally well-written story, with enough character development to allow you to feel a connection with the two main parties to the story. Gripping story, one you will find very difficult to put down – there is much that you won't see coming and I sincerely hope that the ending is a lead-in to another book.
