"I LOVED this book. LOVED the romance." - JILLIAN DODD, best-selling author of That Boy and Stalk Me

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 absolutely loved this novel. The author did a remarkable job creating characters with strong unique voices. Reading from both of the main character's points of view gave me insight to their fascinating stories. Drake's thoughts and the dialog with his friends are hilarious. He is the perfect balance for the mysterious and more serious witch, Skye. Wicked Sense has great plot twists and characters you grow to love as their relationship and the quest developes. I can't wait for the next in the series.

Witty, smart, and addictive! A brilliant debut novel: original voice, well-developed plot, and believable characters, with flaws that made them likable and real. The romance is sweet and innocent, although satisfying. I rooted for Drake and Sky all the way throughout the novel. But my favorite character was the antagonist - Jane, with her mean, strong personality and a goal-oriented (or rather obsessed) actions.

Oh how I loved this novel. It was intriguing and interesting and I couldn't put the book down until I had finished it. The author have built up a hidden world of covens and witches, with potions, charms, rituals and spells, where things aren't as they seem. The characters are intriguing and well written with good back stories. There is no love triangle in this story, it's just a sweet and simple love story. Simple and simple, it's a bit hard when you've got to find the Singularity before anyone else does.  I very much liked how the novel was written, in first person, altering between the two main characters. It was interesting to read a story where the protagonist/s weren't the "chosen one" for once.  Though I did suspect who the Singularity was, I'm not sure how things will turn out from there at all. I simply cannot wait to read more of Fabio Bueno, I very much enjoyed the book and I will read the sequel as soon as I can.

Wicked Sense is so much more than just a book about witches. It's about courage, trust,and the ability to know when to let go and rely on your instincts. The book is told from the perspective of the two main characters, Skye (the witch), and Drake (the unassuming cute boy who falls in love with her.) The characters are fresh, endearing, and funny, but the plot line steals the show. The book opens with Skye arriving in the U.S. from England, and attending a high school in Seattle. Unbeknownst by the student population, she is on a mission to find a powerful witch (the Singularity) before the Night Witch (Jane) can get to her. She meets a cute boy, who falls for Skye, and eventually helps her in her hunt for the Singularity. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Wicked Sense and am looking forward to the next one.

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.

I like the premise for "Wicked Sense"; the way the witches are written is excellent! It's good to show the base form of the witchcraft, and not just having a witch be able to do everything possible under the sun magically and it actually took some work to accomplish some of his/her spell work. I had a hard time connecting with the characters, and I felt they were a little flat; especially the side characters. Drake never really grew on me; he just seemed kind of dumb, and in the next books I hope he grows into a man with some strength rather than being a little boy. I did like Skye, but I do hope she starts to become more independent and not worry so much about what others think, and that she will really find herself. I think towards the end of the book, Skye really starts to grow, so I have high hopes for the next books in the series!

A good fast paced story, that will keep you wondering just who is the Singularity? It's also about family. We have our two main characters, Drake and Skye. Both families have their unique challenges, but the bottom line is they are family, and families are there for each other. The one down side was, while I found the book exceptionally well written, I did not like the use of the b word. Call me old fashioned. (Women can be jerks too, you don't have to use the b word all the time.) That is really the only problem I had with this book. The author gave me a copy for an honest review, and I look forward to the next book in this series.
