I will say one thing; this book hooked me on the first few
pages. It just draws you in, and is so well written, I was very impressed. I also love how it takes place in Seattle, so close to where I live, that it just felt more real. I love books that are written well about witches, and this is one of those.

I loved Skye, she is a very strong and fun character,

As if high school isn’t treacherous enough on its own, it is even more difficult if you are trying to date a witch. Drake met a girl, not just any girl Skye just happens to be a witch. Now Drake is hurtled into danger around every corner. Someone is trying to get to him and Skye and they need to figure it out fast before one or both of them end up dead. If that isn’t enough pressure they also need to find the ‘Singularity’ an extremely powerful girl/boy that has more magic than anyone

I really hope Fabio Bueno is a fast writer because I want to read more from him!
I honestly could not put this book down and found myself up reading into the wee hours of the morning.
I really like it when an author tells you at the beginning of a chapter who is speaking and narrating it. Fabio does just that in the title of each chapter so there is no guessing. He gave each character depth and personality, so you really got to know them and cheer them on. In Jane’s case you want to push her b

The book starts out good from the beginning. All the characters are believable and someone that you could have gone to school with. Skye starts out a bit weak but slowly empowers herself with Drake and Priscilla's help. She is sent to a high school in Seattle to find a very powerful witch, the Singularity, that has been born in her generation. She has the rare power of true sight, which should help her find the individual, where others have failed so far. She is able to overcome her attachment t ...more

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.

I can't wait for the sequel.

I LOVED this book. LOVED the romance. Loved the story. The main character is on a mission looking for THE MOST powerful witch EVER! This witch just "got her powers" and could cause all sorts of problems in not only the world, but can you image what would happen if the dark witches ever got control of her great power? Add to that a hot crush, an arrogant ex-boyfriend warlock, and high school, and you've got a great book. I loved the ending and am hoping there will be a sequel.

Wicked Sense is a phenomenal book! Fabio has done a great job of mixing teenage awkwardness and humor into the characters of Drake and Skye. The blurb line of "dating has never been this hard" is spot on for these two. And yet, Drake and Skye have bigger problems than their relationship status!

Wicked Sense is a great paranormal read filled with mystery, magic, and memorable moments! I loved the revealing of the magic world through Skye's eyes. And she was a great main character. I felt even tho

I like the unusual, I like out-of-the-box thinking. With Wicked Sense, Fabio Bueno delivers. (Gotta love his name, right?) The characters were well fleshed out and strong. I enjoy characters who are firmly rooted and make decisions that keep the flow of the story moving at a steady pace. He has created a world that was plausible and very interesting. I loved the way he set the novel in Seattle, a city I could identify with. The bottom line – I was caught up in the author’s writing style and stor

I was given this book by the author in return for an honest review

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I loved following Skye in her search for the "Singularity" and with the help of her new boyfriend "Drake", she manages to do it. This was a really fantastic read and is a definite must for anyone who loves witches.
I can't wait to see what the author writes next

Mr. Bueno has a good grasp of high school dynamics, as Drake and his buddies joke around and interact like a genuine group of teens.

Read full review in the 2012 Holiday issue of InD’tale Magazine.

Fabio's writing is smooth - easy to read and engaging. His characters are vivid - easy to like and easy to hate. And the mysterious Singularity, the thing the whole story hinges on, kept me guessing right up until the end. Definitely a fun read!

I decided to read this one, however, after I included the cover in one of my Cover Snark posts.

Thanks to NetGalley for a digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

There are some things about Wicked Sense that I thought were really good, and some things that I thought were just sort of meh. A lot of people really loved this one, but it just didn't do it for me. I'm not saying it was bad, but I couldn't connect with the characters enough to really get into the story.

I thought the Veil was a plausible way to explain why the witches didn't run around announcing that they had

Wicked Sense is the story of Drake and Skye who meet when Skye arrives as a transfer student at Greenwood High School; Skye is a witch, and she has the powers(charms) of Allure and True Sight, she was the best fit to come to Greenwood to search for the Singularity, a witch who has powers greater than any witch known; but there are other forces that also search for the Singularity and they will do what is necessary to possess this great power.

Jill Swanson-Diaz
This was an awesome book from start to finish! Wicked Sense was another one where I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I love books of this genre but sometimes they tend to blend together. Fabio has an intriguing and fun take on the constructs of magic and life as a witch. He was able to produce an excitingly original story with a great cast of characters. You are thrown right into the plot and the explanation comes later. This is something I really enjoyed about his writing style. I also liked t ...more

I didn't really know what to expect when I started this novel, but I was intrigued by the synopsis. I have read witch-related books but they haven't really screamed 'I'M AMAZING' at me. However, I really enjoyed Wicked Sense! I loved the characters and was hooked to the plot.

This book is told through two different POVs, which I think worked really nicely. We could see different ways of interpreting things from both ways; a female, Skye, and a male, Drake. I think the author did this qu

What I liked: The story was laid out in a way that made sense and paced fast, but it wasn't rushed (something I usually find in books that feel fast paced). The characters felt relatable because of how they acted, like normal high school kids for the most part. They had drama and problems which didn't seem over dramatic or unbelievable. You know, except for the the whole part where they do magic too. I think Boulder was one who surprised me quite a bit, especially when he stuck up for Drake. The ...more
This book was hard for me to read. It was very interesting however I just did not like having to jump back and forth with the POV’s. To me when I am reading I prefer to read from one POV not from two separate POV’s. However, please be aware that this is my opinion, to form you own opinion please support the author and acquire your own copy.

Growing up I was fascinated with witches. I would read anything about them that I could get my hands on. Every year I would read about The Bell Witch in Adams

The book is based around 2 main characters; Skye, a ‘Sister’ (Witch) and Drake, a regular guy. Skye has been sent to Greenwood high school to search for the Singularity (a very powerful Witch) and meets Drake. The closer they get to each other the more involved he gets in her search, and the closer they get to the singularity, the more their relationship blossoms.

I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads in exchange for an honest review.

What a wild ride! I love paranormal books and witch ones especially are extra interesting because every author portrays them so differently. I really liked the main character, she was funny and sweet and intelligent. In one of the rare scenes when she told someone off it was very amusing.

Her relationship with Drake works well with the novel, it feels like a very natural and typical teenage relationship.
Mmmm... I don't know how I feel about this book. It started out not so good. I didn't like much the characters, I couldn't get emotions out of them most of the time, and the story bored me a little sometimes, for the lack of dialog and connection with the characters. At least for about the first half of the book. Skye and Drake got on my nerves sometimes, and they were even a little cold, emotionless. I wasn't impressed with their kind of relationship. They didn't touch me emotionally when toget ...more

I really enjoyed this book, which was surprising to me. I am usually not a fan of anything that falls within the paranormal genre. This book was definitely a paranormal book that I can enjoy. It is a cute story about two kids, Skye and Drake. Skye is a witch, sent to Seattle to track down the “Singularity”, a super witch. Drake falls for her, and together they try to save Skye’s coven from untold harm. I really appreciated the fact that the book wasn’t 100% supernatural stuff, and what was there ...more

I haven't posted a review in some time, but I wanted to give YA readers a heads-up on this great debut book from author Fabio Bueno. It's the first in a series (which I'll be looking forward to).

This young adult paranormal features a teenage witch, Skye, who is given the mission to find a new particularly powerful witch before things go amiss. She runs up against Drake, a non-witch teenage boy who nonetheless can help her figure things out.

The beautiful cover and the blurb hooked me from the start.

Wicked Sense's cast is as vivid as the characters in a good TV show. I was delighted with Skye’s and Drake’s friendships and relationships with their families. Since I’m a female, it was especially fascinating to get a peek of the male dynamics.

The villain of the story, Jane, intimidates everyone with her biker attitude. We see only a tiny glimpse of her human side but she works great as a menace.

No punches are pulled for the characters

“She eyes me. 'What is this all about?'
It's my turn to shrug, upsetting the rocks on my back. 'I don't know. Girl talk. I mean, you can have any guy you want, so why don't you just pick one?'
Priscilla doesn't answer at first. I'm glad I chose this moment: she's actually pinned down and cannot run away. Finally, she says, 'If I can have any guy I want, I'd like to have every guy I want.'
'What do you mean?
She gives me an exasperated look. 'I'm only seventeen, Skye. I'm not looking to settle down just yet.' She probably misunderstands my shocked expression, because she adds, 'I mean, I'm not saying you're wrong or anything, but it's just not me, you know?”
