Review of Wicked Sense by Fabio Bueno


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.

I loved this book. I couldn't put it down once I started reading it. The beginning was really interesting.
It tells about a Skye who is a "Sister" on a mission to look for the "Singularity", a powerful witch who is also being searched by foes. She arrived as a transfer student at Greenwood High School wherein she met Drake, friends, and foes. Skye has the power of both the Allure Charm and True Sight Charm which was the reason why she was sent by the "mothers". Skye's and Drake's forms a relationship with the help of their friends and along the way they also face dangers. 

It was very interesting to read both Skye and Drake's point of view. I really could connect to these characters and they were very likable from the start especially Drake. Skye's has a strong personality but she also has those teen problems especially insecurity because of her Allure charm. For her she would probably look ugly if it wasn't for that charm. It's also due to ex - boyfriend, Conner. 

Now, there's a character I hated the most. Connor is the rare male witch and is one of the mothers' chosen leader. Connor is pretty much a playboy and very conceited. He's power is the Trust Charm and that power speaks for itself. Well, there are other reasons why I hated him and you'll figure it out once you read this book.

I really enjoyed reading Drake's point of view. Drake is very sweet and I really like his personality. Did I mention that he's hot as well? Well, if not, he definitely is. It's nice to know what a guy thinks especially for his age. Drake is lucky that he has good friends who support him despite their teasing moments. He is also supportive of Skye and also a good older brother. His relationship with his sister was in that awkward phase but because he was able to share things with Skye, she was able to help him reconnect with his sister. 
The story line was very interesting. It also had its funny moments but what I love most were the sweet moments. Despite it being a series, the ending was good.

I look forward to reading the next book!
