I finally finished reading the Hunger Games and loved it! The pacing was just right. It was slow enough that I could savor the story but fast enough to keep me interested in the plot and on the edge of my seat. Every page was vivid, adventure-filled, and packed with suspense. As you can guess by now, I hate having to wait for things to happen in a story.
I like to think that Wicked Game is the same way. Reno, Zach, and Jonah are not spending a leisurely graduation vacation abroad doing nothing but relaxing. They become embroiled in a competitive game against each other and, since it’s their last outing before settling into the “real world” they are all playing to win. The pace is fast and the plot is gripping. The pawns in the game have their own complicated lives and that doesn’t make things easy for Reno, Zach, and Jonah.
