The Hex Files: Wicked Never Sleeps
Welcome to Wicked.
Wicked—the paranormal sixth borough of New York—is home to witches and goblins, werewolves and necromancers, elves and vampires…and former Detective Dani DeMarco. Dani’s busy with the grand opening of her family’s pizza parlor, when a knock on the door leaves her face to face with the stunning, yet lethal vampire in charge of the NYPD’s supernatural branch—Captain Matthew King.
There’s been a high profile double homicide in the Sixth Borough, and Dani’s peculiar talent is the only hope to untangle the web of lies and magic connecting the dead victims. As the case spirals into a pulse-pounding chase, Dani’s not sure what’s worse: the fact that a ruthless killer has his sights set on her, or that her feelings for New York’s most infamous vampire have returned…
All is fair in love and war, but passion is downright Wicked…
Uncaged Review: This is a fun book, and a great start to a series that is a spin-off in a round-a-bout way from Magic and Mixology series. I’ve never read this author before, and this book has a lot going for it, well flushed out characters, nice world building and plenty of action. It does have some “romance” in it, but it’s a bit too tame for my tastes. The author does a good job, and I didn’t find any flat or slow spots, the book kept its pace very well.
The author tells this story in different POV’s, which is nice to be able to see the story unfold between more than one view and that will change from chapter to chapter.
All in all, I had a fun time reading the book, and I’d probably like it a bit more if the romance was a bigger player, but for those readers who don’t care about that should have a fun time reading this one. Reviewed by Cyrene
