Review: Wicked (A Wicked Saga, #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Wicked (A Wicked Saga, #1)Wicked by Jennifer L. Armentrout
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

Things are about to get Wicked in New Orleans.

Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart.

Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers stalking the streets. Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny. Deep down, she wants… she needs more than what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for her.

But as Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes she’s not the only one carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. There’s something he’s not telling her, and one thing is for certain. She’s no longer sure what is more dangerous to her—the ancient beings threatening to take over the town or the man demanding to lay claim to her heart and her soul.


Unforgettable scenes, funyy, witty, sexy dialogues, Jennifer manages to create yet another novel with unforgettable characters.

Into the lush scenery of New Orleans, Ivy fights for humanity's protection. With a heavy past to bear, and threats on her future she meets Ren, who also carries secrets of his own.

Well, of course we get to have swoon worthy moments of the two as also the best side character in all of Jennifer's works. Tink, as he is called gets to offer a tone of laughter in the whole novel and I hope to see more scenes with him in the next novel.

Ivy also as a character loves anything that has to do with "Supernatural" and she doesn't miss the references. Her relationship with Ren develops in the span of a month but it is not insta-love. I really appreciate that into a novel.

As for the ending of the book, it's a cliffhanger, really, really a cliffhanger, where you will not know the reactions or even guess if Ivy will be alive or even safe.

A must read, I highly recommend it!
