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.

One of my favorite types of books to read is witches. So when I was asked by the author to read his book Wicked Sense I knew I could not pass up the offer.
Witches are not supposed to exist. These magical beings are not real. Or so the everyone thinks. Skye knows better, she believes in witches and it just so happens she is one. She is part of a coven of witches who are in charge of protecting the veil and making sure no one breaks it. Skye is sent from her home in London to Seattle to attempt to find a new and powerful witch who possess great power. So great that if she is not found this will mean trouble for the coven and the world itself.
On the first day in her new school Skye runs in to some trouble with a girl named Jane, who is also a witch. Jane is bad news and Skye knows it. While at lunch Skye meets a boy her age names Drake. Although shy, Drake approaches Skye and gets to know her. Skye knows she must not let a boy or anything else get in the way of finding the Singularity witch. Against her better judgement she agrees to hang out with Drake. When bad events start happening to Skye she knows someone is out to get her. Buy why and who? Drake soon discovers something it not right and needs answers but what he find out will change everything is has ever believed in.
Witches are real, the veil is now broken and a rouge witch will do anything it can to destroy Skye's chance at finding the Singularity witch. If she did not have enough of her plate Skye begins to fall for Drake and will do anything to protect him.
Wicked Sense is a quick read. I think I finished the book in like 2 days. The story was quite captivating and moves fast. Although I felt there were a few holes in the story-line I still enjoyed reading it. Skye and Drake are interesting characters and give the book such charm.
The romance was flawless, no insta love. The author took his time with having them fall in love slowly and perfectly.
As this is the very first book in the series I know the upcoming books will give more of a back-story about Skye and the coven but it felt to me like something were missing while I was reading. There were a few slow parts that dragged a bit. I honestly did enjoy reading the book and while I was not totally engrossed by the story but it really is a nice start for this series.
If you like books about Witches and Warlocks, spells and magic then this would be a fantastic read for you.
