Book: Wicked Sense
Author: Fabio Bueno
Release Date: September 10, 2012
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.
We’re excited to be hosting Fabio Bueno’s novel, Wicked Sense, as part of his blog tour! Wicked Sense is the first novel in the next great YA paranomal, Singularity series. And to give props to Mr. Bueno, Wicked Sense is the winner of the 2012 Sandy Literary Contest – 1st place – YA category. Congrats!
Let me start off by saying that I was excited to read this book because of the whole witch aspect. I mean, it’s time for us to shelve those summer beach reads and immerse ourselves in books about witches, ghosts, and goblins. Halloween is upon us after all! And Wicked Sense is the perfect book to start off the fall season.
Wicked Sense takes you on a magical journey through high school with a witch who is looking for the Singularity, most powerful witch in the world, with her boyfriend- Drake- who bless his heart, just wants a normal date with Skye.
The problem with finding the Singularity is that she doesn’t know she’s a witch, nevermind, that she has all these powers that are left to be detected.
Skye’s power is that she can sense traces of magic in people- other Sisters and such- hence why she is sent by the Mothers to search for this girl, who is about to hit her prime. Meaning, her magic is about to come to play, ten fold. But finding this girl isn’t easy for Skye because she’s hiding her aura.
But finding a girl who gives off no traces of magic isn’t Skye’s only problem. She’s faced with another witch in the area, Jane, who is also out looking for the Singularity and her powers for not so many good reasons. Jane is a Night Witch and if the wicked witches of the west get a hold of the Singularity, well, expect all hell to break loose.
This book was cute in a way that Drake is just trying to date his girlfriend. He never imagined being thrust into a whole other world, all the while having to come to terms with Skye’s ex, another witch, is also in Seattle.
A quick read, Wicked Sense, is a fun book that takes you through the turmoils of new relationships, with major obstacles in the way. Chanting spells, bumps on the head, and an earthquake; even a skinny dipping adventure thrown in. All the while, looking for the Singularity might be closer to home than any of them ever thought.
I’m looking forward to the second in this series to see how the Singularity deals with her new found powers and how Skye and Drake fair with their new relationship.
