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.
Wicked Sense was the winner of the 2012 Sandy Literary Contest – 1st place – YA category.
I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.
Wicked Sense is a young adult romance, the first in a series about the Singularity, a witch who has unusually strong powers. Skye is a witch who is assigned to Greenwood High in Seattle to try to locate the Singularity. She meets and falls for Drake who has never had a real girlfriend but is willing to give it a try with Skye. She also finds a good friend in Priscilla and a mortal enemy in Jane, who is also a witch.
Fabio Bueno’s writing is easy to follow. I liked the different chapters being from the different points of view. It made the story seem more real and it helped me understand the feelings of the characters.
There were aspects that were unique, such as the idea of the Singularity or that each witch has two charms; however, the story itself was pretty predictable. I knew who the Singularity was pretty early. Even though there weren’t many surprises, I still enjoyed Wicked Sense and I’m look forward to reading the next book in the series.
