Wicked Sense by Fabio Bueno (Singularity Book One)

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.

The one thing that really stood out in this book were the characters. All very intriguing, each person added to the story and in an entertaining way. The book is separated between Skye and Drake's perspectives. But I had a hard time not liking the side characters as well and continued to look forward to the interactions with them as well. 

This story is well paced and I found it hard to put down because there was always something building up to the next and I didn't want to stop in the middle. The way the author introduces the Witch's background and the idea of the Veil as well as enemies was fun, but I did feel that it lacked in the history of how they were unable to stay more out of mainstream and social media. Pagans existing for hundreds of years, the connection to them today and how they maintained to stay hidden would have been great to learn more about. 

Not that this story lacked in any way.  Great characters, dialogue and pacing really helped to keep the story interesting. I always tend to enjoy the villain the most in stories and June was a good one! 

As the Singularity is about to come into her powers, the deadline is approaching fast and the danger that hangs over both worlds is looming.
