Book review: Wicked Game by Jeri Smith-Ready

When former con artist Ciara Griffin gets a job as a marketing intern at a dying radio station, she’ll do anything to stop a corporate takeover—even if that means exposing the DJs’ undead status in an effort to boost ratings.

Wicked Game is a good story with a strong, engaging plot and interesting approachable characters.  Author Jeri Smith-Ready explains some old vampire legends in a way that’s interesting and plausible and at times even funny. Still, this novel is essentially just another vampire story, with nothing particularly new and innovative to lift it above the rest.  Readers will enjoy it, but more for the main character’s intriguing ability to turn a con than because of the vamped out DJs.

Two other titles to check out: Ill Wind by Rachel Caine and Bitten by Kelley Armstrong.
