Something Wicked (Wicked #3)
Some refer to it as the Colony. To others, it's a cult. But few locals in the Oregon coastal hamlet of Deception Bay have ever been invited to the inner sanctum of Siren Song. Even the sisters who live here, far from strangers who might recoil at their unnerving psychic abilities, don't know all the terrors buried within its walls. . .

While I cant dislike the book I was not thrilled with it.
I have read better books in this genre.
The biggest hurdle that I had was not on the writing but on the way it read on my Nook. The page numbers were in the middle of the pages and the authors names also. Most of it was formatted as double spacing. Some areas were single spaced but 95% was formatted weird.
The murder possession theme was slightly weird but all in all an interesting read. I thought the changes of thoughts were a bi ...more
A dark supernatural thriller, Something Wicked will send a shiver up your spine. I'm sure I'll catch some flack for this, but it is my opinion that men write better horror than women do. I'm not so close minded that I don't give female authors a chance, obviously since I entered the giveaway for the book. In any case Lisa Jackson and Nancy Bush can give any male author of horror a run for their money.
This is the first book by either author that I have read. As I understand it, Lisa Jackson ten ...more

There were times that I had to stop and sift through all the information that was given about the characters. There were too many people to deal with at one time. The mystery was revealed too soon in the book. The only twist was Henry/Charlie and the fact that the one contacting him telepathica ...more

The book kept me reading but I only liked one character, the pregnant detective trying to solve several cases at the same time, endure teasing about being pregnant from the rest of station and be a surrogate for sister. I sort of felt that she was protecting me from the rest of the book. Even though, it w ...more

The characters were easy to picture in my mind. I enjoyed the various personalities. The evil person was intriguing even while being scary and deadly. There was just enough shock value and mystery.
