Wicked Sense by Fabio Bueno, Book Review

General Information
Genre: YA
Publisher: Booklings Publishing
Published: September 17, 2012
Book Summary: (Per GoodReads)
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.


My Thoughts
Amazing. This book has YA elements, romance elements, fantasy/mystical elements and still reads so easily and enjoyably that I never wanted the story to end!  Fabio tells this story from both lead characters perspective and that truly is my favorite part!  I love that as a reader we know what both characters thought of events or people. It enriched the story and kept me rooted to the book.  Seriously I could not put it down!

All the characters are so rich in their development that I felt like I could see them in my own neighborhood or as people I might have gone to high school with.  The relationship dynamics between family, friends, ex's, etc. were spot on and done in a way that humorous.  I loved the scene where Skye had a truth spell in play!  So good to see a macho man telling his actual thoughts which were quite sincere and sweet.  Additionally, all characters are this developed, not just the main...in fact some of the characters I am most excited to see grow and what happens with them are not the main, but some of the secondary..I am rooting for you Priscilla!

It is the beginning to the series, but the great part is that the other books in the series are available to read when you do finish this introduction to a world of magic, teenagers and a deception of epic proportions.  You will be left with questions of how can this happen, will they be successful, what is going to happen to make the truth come out, etc.

This is a beautifully written story that will grab your attention for many reasons and hold it to the end.  I am thrilled I was able to read it and cannot wait to start reading the next in the series.
