Do you believe in magic?
Jacobey’s book, The Wicked Awakened, grabs from the very beginning.
Two friends, Sarah and Karen, go to a bazaar and find a necklace which, when Sarah holds it, feels an electric current go through her. Karen buys it for Sarah for her birthday, and the man selling the item tells her it has magic in it. However, even though Sarah was into the goth look when she was in high school, doesn’t believe in it anymore; unlike her friend Karen.
Slowly Karen brings Sarah back to believing and that is all I can tell you. You need to read what happens to Sarah; I do not want to ruin it for you.
I highly recommend The Wicked Awakened even if you do not believe in magic!

The end of the world is coming, or so they say, and that puts Bailey Dewitt on a crash course with Armageddon. Orphaned, she and her young brothers find themselves living with their renegade uncle as part of a group of survivalists. She struggles against them, searching for a way to escape, but every discovery only terrifies her more.
For Caleb Cross, the Ranch is a way of life. The members of their group are family, and none should come between them. Smitten from the moment he met Bailey, his choices are no longer easy, his path no longer clear. He wants to welcome her and the twins into their fold and hopes his kin will agree.
But the elders who lead them aren’t interested in the troublesome girl. They are plotting for the time they will be rid of her and expect Caleb to go along with their plans – he is after all one of them.
At first, Bailey resists Caleb’s charms but soon must admit that she desperately needs a friend. She has no intention of anything more, but when the elders make their move, she is forced to trust him with her very life.
They both have hard lessons to learn. Relationships built on secrets and lies don’t come with guarantees. When the world falls apart around them, some things are Irrevocable.
This is a remarkable book! A real page turner!
Jacobey’s characters are believable, and you find yourself sympathizing with them, loving them, hating them.
Her story keeps you wondering what’s going to happen next to Bailey; a teenager who lost her parents and, along with her six-year-old twin brothers, is uprooted from their home in Illinois to live with their uncle in a place called The Ranch.
Bailey’s life is at stake, and she has to do what she can to save herself.
You will really love this book!
I highly recommend it!
