Onto Wicked, I loved it :) Ivy is great, fiesty yet vulnerable, like-able if a bit prickly. My favorite kind of protagonist. Ren is charming as the male lead, though he reminded me a little of Aiden St. Delphi in that he's mature and takes his responsibilities seriously, but has a funny side too. And he's massively caring and protective of Ivy which is aahh,swoon.
But Tink is my favorite character from this book. He's hilarious, and the banter between him and Ren at the end is priceless. He's got Ivy's back too, and you know there is more of an agenda there than he's let on. Hopefully we'll find out more when Torn is released in the summer.
I love Jennifer's inimitable writing style and this book is up there with the best of her best. Pacing is great, and I was hooked from the start. The plot was predictable in places, but I still really enjoyed it. The whole thing with Val and what Ivy is - totally guessed it, even with the bum steer. Also where were the Elite with this big threat hanging over New Orleans? Surely they would have sent in the cavalry? The other thing that didn't make sense to me was how David and Ren were both suspicious of Val (you could tell) yet they assigned her to room that held the gateway? Again, didn't add up.
JLA loves her cliff-hangar endings, and so do I. This was isn't a total killer but I'm still dying for the next book. Ivy is facing a real dilemma and I'm intrigued to see what she does. She can't tell Ren, not that he would turn her in, but she'd involve him in it if she confided in him. Yet she can't run either, as then they will all be hunting her. So she's kind-of damned if she does, and damned if she doesn't.
If you're a fan of JLA, or of new adult fantasy in general then you should pick up a copy of this book. You won't be disappointed.
I loved how it had a more adult angle to it than other fantasy fiction books i've read but that's it's main good point. The whole thing was predictable even when it tried to steer you away from the obvious prediction. I'll read the other ones as I have a soft spot for the characters. Especially Tink. Their development was not as in depth as it could be but gave you enough information for you figure out each characters personality.
She's a good writer but i've read better nonetheless her story line is promising and i'm not dying to read the next one but fairly excited.
I recommend you read it, it has the ability to be one of the best books you've read within this genre or one of the worse.
It depends on you.
Ivy Morgan is a college student by day and a faerie hunter by night. She's part of The Order which is a group that has dedicated their lives to protecting people from the faeries and sending them back where they belong. One night, Ivy stumbles across a faerie she can't kill and realises that something huge is going on. Enter Ren Owens. Ren knows more than he's letting on and Ivy is determined to crack him.
Ivy is a kick ass female lead. She's knows how to fight and she doesn't let anyone push her around. She's stubborn and stands her ground. She's also absolutely hilarious and completely loves food, which made her even more awesome.
Ren is a very mysterious character. He's hot, snarky, broody and charming. I couldn't help but love him. He's got a lot of secrets and knows more about what's happening than he lets on.
So Wicked revolves around the fact that their are Ancient fae's wandering around in New Orleans when they should have been locked back in their own world. Something huge is going on since more than one Ancient has been spotted and hundreds of fae have been making their way towards New Orleans. Ivy is the only one that spots what's going on, but no one believes her - until Ren shows up. And it turns out the fae are going to try to open the hidden doors that keep them locked out from Earth.
I adored everything about the story line of Wicked. I loved the setting - New Orleans is perfect for creepy supernatural going on's and reading about Ivy and Ren wandering about in New Orleans made me even more desperate to visit - I'm dying to try some beignets! Tink was probably my favourite character in the book, he was just so hilarious! He had me laughing my ass off most of the time and I don't think the book would have been the same without him. I also really liked Val. She came across as a bit of a flake, but her and Ivy were extremely close.
Ivy and Ren had some super hot chemistry. Ivy was determined to fight her attraction to Ren until a very hot scene between them in club showed Ren how Ivy really felt about him, But even then. Ivy still fought her attraction due to a mistake she made when she was younger that led to something horrific happening. But Ivy and Ren were fantastic together.
The ending was full of action. The fight scenes were fantastic and I loved seeing Ivy get all bad ass, but then THE BETRAYAL! I never saw that coming and I was completely sidelined by that twist. And then at the very end Ivy discovered something about herself that I'd worked out half the book ago, but w/e, at least I knew I was right and it'll definitely make book two interesting!
Overall, Wicked was a fantastic New Adult paranormal read. I love that there's a bit more variety in NA appearing now and I'm hoping for some more paranormal! I'd definitely recommend Wicked if you love some paranormal and don't mind more mature romance.
