The Wicked

The Wicked is a stunning paranormal romance that will have you reading into the night. I enjoyed this book a lot.

As the blurb states “Nexi Jones knows two things--being half Guardian is tough--being half Witch is simply problematic. With her Guardian duties put on hold, she begins the grueling task of discovering her magical abilities, which tend to be unpredictable, at the best of times.” With that blurb I was expecting lots of action and interesting foibils and that’s just what the author delivered.

Nexi was a wonderfully strong heroine and she did not let people boss her around. But she didn’t take that too far either…she walked the fine line between being rude and getting things done. The hero, Kyden, was also strong yet tender and a bit powerful. Nexi and Kyden's realationship was great. The romantic scenes were exciting. I also liked the action scenes as Nexi's powers were fun and facinating. The villains were also well done. The author also made this story more believable by having Nexi train in advance for her powers. It just made it more read. Each character in this book was interesting in their own way and together they make a great book to read.

With enough trouble controlling her powers--the added rivalry between the two tough Guardians leaves Nexi in urgent demand of a fire extinguisher.

But when tragedy strikes the very core of the Otherworld, Nexi needs to shape up as she lands herself knee deep into vampire society--a world run by vampire Mistresses who offer their assistance in unearthing a deadly plot of revenge. But as the truth begins to unravel, Nexi begins to discover that the Otherworld isn’t the only place where Supernaturals exist--and there is something far darker than thirsty vampires lurking within the shadows…
