The blurb pulled me in and read like it would be a book that would be right up my street, so I decided to read it on the off chance it would be exactly what I was looking for.
However, what I got was so much more. Kelly Charron is a new author to me but I quickly learnt that she must be some kind of evil genius. The concept was absolutely brilliant and very cleverly constructed. In fact there were a few parts that were so intense, they gave me actual chills as we delved deeper into this story a 15 year old serial killer. The blurb may have pulled me in but the words captivated my attention.
Getting to follow the story from the mind of the killer was an exceptional idea and gives us a better understanding behind the motives of our Main character's actions.
Pretty Wicked is edgy and a little dark in places, with a little twist thrown in to keep things interesting. The author clearly has a natural talent for stories such as this.
I absolutely loved this and can't wait to read more from this author.
Reading the synopsis got me in immediately. I read a lot of books about chasing serial killers, I couldn't resist the opportunity to follow along with the killer. There's no mystery, we know Ryann is a murderer. But will she get caught? I knew this was a YA novel, and it was the quick and easy read I expected. Really enjoyable and tense. I wasn't sure if I wanted Ryann to get caught or get away with it! She's been planning murders for years, reading stories about famous serial killers she calls the "Greats" and learning about police work from her father. Once she finally feels ready and carries out her first attack, she can't get enough. Who doesn't trust the cute, perky cheerleader that tops off at about five feet tall? It's almost too easy. It's also a new addiction, and her friends and family start to get suspicious about her changing behavior.
I received an ARC from Net Galley and Dark Arts Publishing in exchange for my honest review. My opinions are my own. Thank you!

Pretty wicked will make you ask that question immensely. We’ve all read a book about people being murdered or hunted, but never really from the murders point of view. I was immediately intrigued when I found out that’s how this book was written. For the most part, it’s coming from our MC point of view, Ryann, 15-year-old aspiring serial killer. This book will have you hooked from the first page. You’ll want to keep turning pages as Ryann pulls off the most lavish murders her small town has ever seen. I couldn’t put it down, I had to know how it would end! Being the first book of the series, it definitely leaves you wanting more and more. It had me questioning the nature of being born evil or simply becoming evil, but not from the expense of a hard life. She carefully chose who she would bring down. She started off like any murderer; cautious and careful. After things started getting hectic, she started slipping. Will she get away with being a 15-year-old serial killer? You’ll have to find out for yourself on September 30th!
Overall, it was a fantastic book and I would recommend it to anyone! I cannot wait until the second book, Wicked Fallout.

Oddly enough, you want our pretty killer to be caught...and you don't. And don't get me wrong, she's not a vigilante (no Dexter here) - she kills people who bug her. Or who just randomly catch her eye. But darned if you don't kind of like her all the same.
She's bold, bright, and evil.
This is simply a good thriller and I'd happily read the author again in the future!
