In this thrilling finale toKarina Cooper's Dark Mission series,New Seattle's witches will rise again . . .or fall forever.
Dr. Kayleigh Lauderdale possesses the only cure for what's killing the city's witches. Desperate to acquire it, the resistance sends their best agent, but Shawn Lowehas his own agenda and it doesn't include saving anyone—least of all, the daughter of his sworn enemy. He has to ignore the blistering attraction he feels the instant they meet, because he can't give in until he gets what he wants. He just never counted on wanting her . . .
Kayleigh can't believe how out of control Shawn makes her feel. He lies to her with one breath and excites her beyond reason with the next. A reckless encounter could steal her heart, while the danger hovering over the city may prove too much for either of them to handle. When the world turns upside down, it will take everything Kayleigh and Shawn have to hold on . . . to life, to hope, to each other.

Review by: Reading In Pajamas – Cori
Rated: 4.5 Stars
Karina Cooper’s Dark Mission series comes to a finale in One for the Wicked. This series is fast-paced, full of drama, action and romance. I picked up this book for review not knowing it was part of a series. I had to go back and read the first 4 books to understand the book. It was worth it. I loved this series and this book was a great finale! The worldbuilding in this story is incredible! I could not put these books down and devoured them. Shawn and Kayleigh are on opposites sides in this fight, but when they come together their chemistry is explosive and undeniable. When Kayleigh realizes she is on the wrong side and her father is really the villain she jumps in to help. This book was an incredible ending and I can’t wait to see what Karina Cooper has in store for her readers next. I highly recommend this series!
*Review copy was provided by Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.
To be more specific, though, Shawn is the kind of guy who wants to be an a-hole, but he can never quite be one. He tries to be a BA (and mostly succeeds), but he's also a bit of a vulnerable man. Kayleigh was the right woman for him, and vice versa.
I warmed up to Kayleigh sooner than I expected to, and really empathized with her. She got hit hard with massive things, over and over, within days. I really appreciated that though her upbringing was topside and she "should" be, by all accounts, a prim and proper, weakened woman -- she wasn't. She was strong throughout the book, and it felt right. Mentally strong and intelligent, she held her own.
Plot wise, this book was a race. I always applaud an author who, despite the reader's knowledge that there will be some sort of HEA at the conclusion of the book, manages to make me worry and fear for everyone's futures. It wasn't forced, and the chaos was brilliantly written.
All in all, thank you, yet again, Karina. Fabulous series. This final novel wrapped everything up nicely, but still gave me a sense that time went on. It wasn't butterflies and rainbows. The fight goes on, but this saga is complete. Absolutely perfect ending to this series.
