Présentation de l'éditeur

Growing up in a conservative polygamous community, Eliza Christianson was a young woman of faith who could never quite wrap her mind around the fundamentalist aspects of her religion. Thanks to her older brother Jacob, she managed to survive adolescence unmarried, even enrolling in classes at the University of Utah. Eliza always suspected God had more in store for her than just to be some man’s third or fourth wife; nonetheless, she is surprised when Allison Caliari seeks her out for help. Allison’s daughter Madeline has been recruited by a doomsday cult led by a cruel man known only as the Disciple, and she wants Eliza’s help to get the girl back. One of the few leads Allison can offer is a fateful one: Jacob and Eliza’s brother David, a “lost boy” shunned by the church. Eliza sets out to convince David to help her infiltrate the cult, and she ventures to an abandoned dumping ground in the Las Vegas desert to rescue Madeline. The third installment of Michael Wallace’s enthralling Righteous series, The Wicked tears off the veil of religious fanaticism as seen through the eyes of an extraordinary heroine. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Michael Wallace has hit another home run! 2 juin 2011
Par Kristie Leigh Maguire - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Michael Wallace has hit another home run, knocking it out of the ball park with The Wicked from The Righteous series. This time the focus is on Eliza and yet another of the Kimball sons, Caleb Kimball, who calls himself The Disciple. The Disciple gathers his flock of followers around him in the desert outside of Las Vegas where he prepares his Chosen Ones for the end of the world.

I can't seem to get enough of this series. Thank goodness Michael has left the door open for a possible 4th book in the series with the ending of The Wicked. One can only hope this is the case.

I love Michael's writing style. The only way I can see that he hasn't been picked up by one of the Big 6 publishing houses is by his choice. It certainly isn't from lack of skill and story telling. Michael, you rock!

Five stars in one respect, one star in others 8 avril 2012
Par Shanagan - Publié sur

I've read the first three of these books, and have finally decided that though they are well-written (those reviewers who mention typos & grammar issues must've picked up on something I missed, as I think I recall one typo in all three books) overall, I simply do not like them. While they do drag in areas, for the most part the author has done a good bit of very nice writing. I'd love to see the author ditch this series and focus on non-religious fiction. This is very much a split review, I know.

So, good writing aside, I do feel that the author is trying to straddle a line between being "factual" and titillating (both in a traditional sense and in an almost equally prurient "outsider peeking into a closed society" sense) but the books are filled with subtle (and sometimes not-so-subtle) mainstream LDS proselytizing. If that's your cuppa, great, enjoy. But considering these are not filed under a religious category, it is frankly pretty annoying to be hit over the head with some of the subject matter that is written as fact (w/out any spoilers, I'm just saying that the whole David storyline was deeply irritating).

In short, as we get to know the characters better, the less I liked - or related to - any of them. Perhaps that is my own prejudice showing, perhaps it is the author's intent for whatever reason. Perhaps because I am not LDS, fundamentalist Morman or a member of a Judeo-Christian organized religion I simply can't get into that groove. So, I appreciate Amazon's .99 cent special for the first three in the series, but I wouldn't recommend them to any of my friends for any more, or less, than that.

I Loved this book! 6 juin 2011

I had to work this weekend and had a hard time reading in between, but I was hooked. I love these books can't wait for the next one. I had a hard time putting this book down once I started. I am so glad I found his book The righeous. It was worth it. I love that you get to see more of Eliza and the brother David in this one. Most of the characters were back that were in the other two.

Wallace's stories are wonderful! 14 septembre 2011
Par DC from WA USA - Publié sur

Just finished Wallace's latest in the Righteous series and it just keeps getting better. The continuation of this story flows well. The character's remain true to previous writings and yet I think you could read this story independent from the others. But this would be like eating one Lay's potato chip. I will follow this story to the end and also read the excerpt for The Red Rooster which I picked up. It also looks like a great read.

Keep 'em coming Mr. Wallace. You have a gift that was meant to be shared.

This guy writes really well 7 septembre 2011

I think I've now read all of the books in this series, and will start on Wallace's other books next. He's got a real talent for this kind of writing. His characters ring true rather than being caricatures, and his plotting is well-timed and executed. There's plenty of suspense and unpleasant surprises to hold the reader's interest.

Highly recommended.
