Wicked Sense

Wicked Sense (Singularity #1)

Published: 9th August 2012

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Fantasy
Age: Young Adult
From: Ebooks For Review

Summary:

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 liked: I felt that the story was laid out really well and that even though the pace for this story was fast, it wasn’t rushed (something I usually find in books that feel fast paced). The characters also felt relatable because of how they acted, like normal high school kids for the most part. You know, except for the the whole part where they do magic too. I think Boulder was one who surprised me quite a bit, especially when he stuck up for Drake. The story was also engaging enough to keep me coming back to it even after just a few chapters in to find out what else there was that I didn’t know that was happening with the Witches Coven, because there were certainly some things I wanted to know. The dual POV was always labeled and worked really well for the story, and even though this story is labeled as a paranormal romance the romance part isn’t a really big part, it serves as a small portion of the overall story.

What I didn’t like: Sometimes I felt the writing was a bit choppy and I wish the chapters had been longer because as soon as I seemed to be settling into either Skye or Drake’s POV it would switch so it never felt like I got truly comfortable with either character narrating the story.

Overall Review: With well developed characters and a really good plot that kept my attention for most of the book and had some really interesting scenes that had a touch of humor. I really liked the characters and I can’t wait to see what else they go through in the next book!

Recommend?: Yeah, it’s a good read that I enjoyed, I look forward to eventually reading the second one if I get the chance!
