Each vampire DJ plays the music of their era on their shows. This allows them to stay connected to their time while reading the news and the weather connects them to present day. This, along with their obsessive- compulsive behaviors, keeps them sane. Without the station, the vampires would “fade”. After getting to know the vampires, and especially the cute 90s grunge-rocker Shane, Ciara is determined to find a way to save the station. She comes up with the idea of “hiding in plain sight”. She proposes that they change the station call letters to WVMP and tell everyone that the DJs are vampires. While people certainly won’t believe that vampires exist, it will intrigue people and make the DJs overnight celebrities. But some vampires are not too thrilled with this campaign and they will do anything to protect their secret.
Jeri Smith-Ready has created a heroine who has flaws and struggles with right and wrong, which is a refreshing change from the sweetness and light heroines of the past. She writes with humor and passion and gives her vampires distinct personalities, which make the reader, want to discover more about each of them. I am very excited to report that Wicked Game is the first of a series. The second book, Bad to the Bone, will be released May 1, 2009 and I cannot wait to read it. I was especially thrilled to discover that Jeri is a local author and that the town that this story takes place in is actually somewhere that I used to live. Wicked Game is a huge hit!!
