When you think of #WickedGoodReads, what type of scary characters do you think of? Vampires, witches, ghosts? … but what about books where it’s the person standing just behind you that you really need to be afraid of?! Those can really creep me out too. Here are 3 fantastic #WIckedGoodReads with Dangerous People.
The Rook, Daniel O’Malley
A Rook is a high-ranking member of a secret organization called the Chequy that battles the many supernatural forces at work in Britain. If that isn’t enough to make you sweat, our main character also possesses a rare, potentially deadly supernatural ability. Her former employer had better watch their back.
“The body you are wearing used to be mine.” So begins the letter Myfanwy Thomas is holding when she awakes in a London park surrounded by bodies all wearing latex gloves. With no recollection of who she is, Myfanwy must follow the instructions her former self left behind to discover her identity and track down the agents who want to destroy her.
The Chemist, Stephenie Meyer
I really wasn’t sure what to expect with this book when I learned who the author was, but it was such a good read! I was hooked from the first page. How scary would it be to wake up tied to a table by the worlds deadliest chemist holding a syringe? Pretty damn scary, I’d say. Also, pretty handy to be a chemist when you’re being chased by a government agency who want you dead.
She used to work for the U.S. government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn’t even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning.
I Am Not A Serial Killer, Dan Wells
A sociopath as the main character? Yes, it’s bound to get interesting. This book has a twist that’ll drop your jaw to the floor.
John Wayne Cleaver is dangerous, and he knows it. He’s obsessed with serial killers. Dead bodies are normal to John. He likes them, actually. Now, for the first time, John has to confront a danger outside himself, a threat he can’t control, a menace to everything and everyone he would love, if only he could.
