Author: Fabio Bueno
Publisher: Booklings Publishing
My rating: ★★★★✫
I got to know about Wicked Sense via Ebooks for Review. Every now and then I pick a book from their list that sounds like something I would read. Young adult, fantasy… yes, that was right up my alley!
What the book is about
Witches inhabit our world, organized in covens and hiding behind a shroud of secrecy—the Veil.
Skye’s London coven sends her to Seattle’s Greenwood High to find the Singularity, an unusually gifted witch who may break the Veil and trigger a dangerous new era of witch-hunting. Things get complicated when Skye meets a charming new classmate, Drake. Skye’s job becomes even trickier when she clashes with Jane, an intimidating rival witch.
Drake falls for the mysterious Skye, but odd accidents, potion mix-ups, and the occasional brush with death kind of get in the way of romance. Once he discovers Skye is a witch, he goes to war for her, even though his only weapons are a nice set of abs and a sharp sense of humor.
Fighting off wicked Jane and the other dark forces hell-bent on seizing the Singularity’s immense power, Skye and Drake will risk everything to save the covens.
Going on a date has never been harder.
What I think about the book
You get to know both Skye and Drake and their point of view. I must admit that I am never a big fan of multiple points of views in one book, but in this story it just works really well. The chapters complete each other in such a way that it’s almost natural and it gives the book a certain pace that I liked. Therefore I finished the book in just two days, while I have not been reading a lot lately. Well done!
I totally fell for both Drake and Skye. Drake seems to be perfect for her and he is the kind of guy who accepts people for who and what they are. His past has not been easy, but still he can find ways to make friends and trust people, or at least Skye. She is determined to stick to her task, especially after her break up with her ex Connor, but she can’t help falling for Drake. Even though that part might be a bit cliche, it is okay because the book deserves a good love story.
Guess who is diving straight into the next part of the Singularity series? Yup, me! I am really glad I have discovered this book.
