Here’s a review for Wicked Sense in my stop in the tour. Enjoy!
About Wicked Sense
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. Skye’s job gets even trickier when she clashes with intimidating rival witch Jane and meets charming new classmate Drake.
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.

I love witches! Well, not really but books about witches. And this one is another awesome read in that list. Fabio has crafted such a wonderful set of rules, magic and world in this novel that I was pulled right in into it. We land smackdab in the heat of things, conflict first, explanation later. I love that! Even in a book or in a movie or in a show. I just want to get to the action asap! Haha! See how impatient I am?
And it gets better because it’s told from both Skye’s and Drake’s POV and he-said-she-said is so my thing! Seriously, I can live reading he-said-she-said romances forever. Hahaha! So okay, they like each other but the romance did not take the frontseat and I like that about this book. The mission to find the Singularity is still the priority and honestly, I sometimes get sick of novels that forget their plot and just focus on the romance. Because if it’s a paranormal romance, I dunno, I guess paranormal comes first? Never mind what I’m saying.
Even though it seems like this novel would be such a cliche, I dunno, it felt refreshing and fresh even for a YA novel about witches and cute boys. Goes to say that with the writing skill, you can still carve out a name for yourself even in this witch-saturated literature landscape. The characters were so great I’m missing them right now! This was a quick read and I hate it because I wanna spend more time with Skye and Drake! Heehee, I’m such a predictable teenager. Haha! Her growth throughout the novel and how she dealt with everything, it’s just so perfect. These characters are not whiny and THANK GOD FOR THAT. Seriously, sometimes I pull my hair out with whiny YA heroines. Haha!
Anyway, I think I’m just babbling but you have to get my point: GRAB A COPY OF WICKED SENSE AND READ IT! Yeah, I typed it loud and clear so there’s no reason for you not to read this. And Fabio, can we have the second book already? Gah, waiting kills me!
