Wicked Power is what he craves. He collects it and turns it into wicked glory-the glory of ruling everything and everyone. Even after Vanessa and Zander Roth barely survive the Eroi's attempt to expose them for what they are, they aren't safe. Sitting balanced on the edge of impending death and unthinkable power, they reluctantly turn to the other Godlings for help. What they find and learn while being trained by the arrogant leader makes them question whether they are being trained to be a weapon for good or evil. Soon enough, Van and Zander find themselves once again on opposing paths. A lot of things happen to Godlings as they near their sixteenth birthday, including the impending full strength of their hunger. When Van starts exhibiting some strange abilities, which include a heightened intuition and frightening visions of the future, she soon learns that she's not like the others. She knows she must do everything she can to protect her secrets from their leader, who will use her as a weapon if he finds out. Thankfully, Van is not alone. She has the help of her best friend-and the one boy she shouldn't be falling in love with-Ketchup. While Van is dealing with her own problems, Zander finds himself embracing the training of the Godlings, even though their methods are cruel and harsh. He finds himself clinging to the hope that he can redeem himself, even after falling into Ivy's trap and putting their family's lives in danger. Along the way, Zander finds himself falling for an unlikely accomplice, who has him wondering if he even loved Ivy at all. Redemption and protection both take a backseat 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. Wicked Power is the second book in the all-new paranormal series, Someone Wicked This Way Comes.

She wrote her first novel when she was sixteen years old, but spent ten years rewriting and perfecting it before having it published.
Native to New Mexico, DelSheree and her husband spent several years in Colorado for college and work before moving back home to be near family again. Their two children love having their seventeen cousins close by. When not writing, you can find DelSheree reading, painting, sewing and trying not to get bitten by small children in her work as a dental hygienist.

I can't believe I am going to leave the first review. I received Wicked Power because the author took pity on me. No actually she provided me with a copy for an honest review, and honestly is what you are going to get. In Wicked Hunger, Van and Zander Roth are sister and brother trying to figure out who they are. They have a hunger that they just don't understand. There older brother, Oscar, has given in to his hunger and is locked up in an institution. In Wicked Hunger, Zander meets a girl (Ivy) that he both loves and wants to kill. From Van's first meeting of her, she knew that something was wrong. It is a book that is a must read, and it is currently free on Amazon. In Wicked Hunger, we also get to meet Ketchup. At first he seems like a minor character, but he ends up not being so minor. Wicked Power continues that story of Zander and Van. Oscar is also included. They have finally find out what they are, and they are shocked and also hurt that they were never told. They had no idea that their hunger could be controlled, and that they are more out there like them. The one person that has stuck by Van and even Zander is Ketchup. He knows that one wrong move and Van and Zander could kill him. But oddly he is the one person that makes Van sane. And in an amazing and touching scene from the author, Ketchup's name is revealed. Wicked Power is a book that you are not going to want to put down. The plot is awesome and there ways it goes that I never saw. This is just not your typical YA paranormal. Its not about vampires or ghosts or shifters. It is about two teenagers that are trying to discover what they need to do. Van, Zander and even Oscar are led to Wicked Glory...
