Earlier times are covered by flashbacks, which frustrated the bejeezus out of me. The timing was akin to a commercial break, strategically placed before a major revelation is about to go to air. At these times I was desperate for someone to hold my hand, to placate me and help me wait out the return to the present. Fortunately the past and present tense was limited.
What astounded me in the first half was Zeth being off his game. He was second guessing his thoughts which were far removed from the confident man in previous books. I expected mellow, but where would the fun in that be LOL. Well, most of the guys were off their game except for the Barbieris.
Getting Zeth’s attention the way the Barbieri’s did in the last book was not a good idea. Persuasive is one thing, but this was demanding. No one demands Zeth does anything anymore. Zeth’s response had me worried, especially with his head space. His behaviour tripped off Sloane’s reactions and as a consequence, his Angry Girl was subdued.
Close to the halfway mark of the story, the pace began to pick up. So much so, that I was at 91% wondering how on earth I had read so fast! The twists had my heart pounding. I didn’t pick the instigators of the drama nor have the slightest inkling of the drama awaiting Zeth and Sloane. Wicked at this point was an understatement of the actions of the perpetrators.
I enjoyed having the other familiar characters around, well, some more than others. Not being a schemer of evil doings myself, I was shocked when I began considering methods of justice to inflict upon certain characters. There’s a secondary story with Mason struggling to overcome his grief. Like Michael, Mason is proving his worth as a man who can stand alongside Zeth.
The dialog written in first person POVs came across as too well spoken at times, especially during difficult moments where normally a person would be struggling to convey their thoughts so articulately. Even Zeth’s thought process felt wordy during the first half of the story. With hindsight, when I reached the end, it was clear why the story was paced and told as it was.
If you’re like me and have a few (coughs) series on the go, you’ll be pleased to hear this book contained sufficient background details to negate the need to freshen up on the series before diving into Wicked Things. My final thought was please let there be another book. I am far from done with Zeth Mayfair and am desperate the read on to see how he tackles this new chapter of his life.
Although Wicked Things deserved 5 stars for content and storyline, the editing definitely was sub par on this one. I know all errors are hard to catch, but there were several places where the wrong words were actually used. Had that not been the case I would have given it 5 stars.
