The same with dialogue, action, humor, romance. Reading pushes me to develop my own stories, and that drives my need to write again. (less)

Susan Stec I give this whole series 5 stars. It's my favorite Young Adult series. I was memorized by the concept from book one.

Relationships, family, friends, love, pain—there is always pain—and a driving hunger for answers come together in a powerful conclusion that is sure to change the lives of Zander, Van, and everyone who knows them in the next episode of SOMEONE WICKED THIS WAY COMES.

I will be waiting, but not so patiently :)
