Wicked (A Wicked Saga #1)FeaturedHot
Except maybe---owls. I don't think even she could change my mind about owls. And yes, they totally count as paranormal.
WICKED is not your average Fae story but it has all the elements I have come to expect and love in a JLA book; strong characters, witty banter, a great story and face fanning romance. It's fast paced action had me wishing I too could join the Order (for realz),and the plots twists and turns kept me on my toes right up until the very wicked ending.
WICKED is a great start to a new New Adult paranormal series and I CAN.NOT.WAIT to see where the story goes next in TORN!
BTW, Ivy is kick-ass and Ren is totally swoon-worthy, but I call dibs on Tink.

This was really well done! Amy Landon does a great job of bringing Ivy, Ren and Tink to life.
Definitely a fun read!
Wicked is no exception. We get to meet the main character Ivy who is taking classes, and working for the Order, an organization she grew up a part of based in New Orleans. She is strong and courageous in the face of what she fights day in and out. She is also a survivor, as she has lost her family and a boy she loved all due to what the Order is up against, but she is still functioning and very much a part of fighting the fae in disguise who love the city of New Orleans because weird stuff can go down and hardly anyone will even blink an eye.
Ren comes on the scene pretty early, and you can feel the chemistry and tension between them. Ivy is afraid to open her heart though because of all the losses she suffered. The synopsis also lets us know that there is something about Ren that will open her eyes to things about the Order she didn't know, and will make her question what she thinks she knows.
Tink amused me to no end. He is sort of a houseguest, and I love the conversations he and Ivy have. He is sarcastic, loves sugar, loves HP and Twilight and says he's watching for research.
The romance got very hot, and I loved every second. I was thinking it could be ya for a while, and then I was very pleased to realize it heated up to very NA or adult levels. It made me sigh for Ren and want my toes to curl.
I was beginning to expect one of the twists at the end but it didn't take away from my enjoyment. Can't wait for more in the series.
Bottom Line: Great hot start to a series I am excited about.
