Book Description
They're weak, he thought bitterly. I hate the weak. I'm not weak. I'll show them – I'll show them all!

A white-faced boy tromped begrudgingly down a hillside stomping snowdrops into the frozen ground. In the nearby woods, black mist swirled mysteriously at the base of a large fir tree, as two figures vanished as quietly as they had come. Before the roses, before the dusk came a time of innocence and laughter.

Nestled quietly in Washington State, the town of Wenatchee is where Lucas Bevan moved when he was four. Living with his mother and a stepfather who inflicts misery, Lucas has the most depressing existence a teen could have - apart from his Becky.

Then along comes Marcus - streetwise and guarded. He gives Lucas just the hope he needs. But Marcus has a secret with unimaginable consequences.

Snowdrops Wilt at Dawn is another instalment in the Demonic series. Bitter, twisted and gripping it shows how easily you can be drawn in!

My Thoughts
After first meeting Marcus in Roses at Dusk, I couldn't wait to see what he got up to in Snowdrops Wilt at Dawn, and lets just say that he is as dark and mysterious as ever.
The amazing Maree Ward-Russell has managed to snag this readers attention right from the first words.
We are drawn into the misery that is Lucas's life and you feel for him and hope that things get better. Then his world is torn apart, or is that put back together, when he meets Marcus. 
We are  taken on an emotional roller coaster ride, as Lucas, and Becky try to put the puzzle together, but there is always just a little bit missing, and some things just aren't what they seem.
We are given just enough detail to keep the story moving forward, without spoiling the progression towards an ending that will leave you totally torn.
I can't wait to see what will come next in The Demonic Series.
