Book Review: Wonderfully Wicked

PictureIn May, I spotlighted C.J. Burright and her new release, Wonderfully Wicked. And now here’s the review!

Breathtakingly romantic and exciting contemporary fantasy, Wonderfully Wicked follows Kalila, who has been haunted by realistic nightmares all her life, as she falls into danger – and love – with a mysterious man who appeared as her killer in her dreams. Lydon is not what she expected – he might not even be human, and he has other ideas about what to do with her than kill her. With Lydon, Kalila discovers the truth behind her nightmares and the strange destiny ahead of her.

The writing is vivid, the characters sharp and well-drawn. Sometimes I wished Kalila had a little bit less of a chip on her shoulder, but given her background (a childhood and adolescence spent bouncing from one dysfunctional foster home to another), I can see why she’d be wary even when the evidence says she doesn’t have to be. Lydon is dreamy (no pun intended) and tormented, and even when his actions appeared to be those of the evil man Kalila feared he was, I just knew that deep down inside, in spite of himself, he was honorable.

Wonderfully Wicked is a lot of fun, and I look forward to more of Kalila and Lydon’s adventures.
