Editorial Reviews

Review

  • "A chilling story, filled with trials, tribulations, and numerous close calls. The plot is strong, well thought out, and unpredictable. I was riveted from the very first word to the very last." ~ Taylor Jones, reviewer.
  • "Constantine's battle sequences are dynamic and a lot of fun to follow, and her demons are suitably awful and terrifying. This is a well-written fantasy which, while predominantly Christian-based, is suitable for contemporary fantasy readers regardless of their religious background. It's well-written, has outstanding characters, and a convincing plot." ~ Jack Magnus, Readers' Favorite
  • "This book starts off with action and doesn't let up, aside from the usual sections of character development. Cathrina has a natural talent for creating believable, likable characters and kick-butt heroines that any reader will admire." ~ Stephanie Faris, Best Selling Author

This book was so good I couldn't put it down. I would recommend age groups from teens to adults. The suspense is over the top. The concept of good and evil is the main topic but the way she writes it sets you on the edge of your seat. I read it in a week which I rarely do but I just loved it!

Wickedly They Come by Cathrina Constantine is dark, ominous YA thriller. I love dark and ominous and it's perfect for older YA and adult readers.

The story revolves Seeley (love that name) and her daughter Jordan. Jack, (Seeley's husband and Jordan's father) belonged to The Black Order, then abruptly changed his alliance after falling in love and having a daughter. This doesn't set well with the evil powers that be at the Black Order and after Jack's death they want Jordan to be consecrated as their own. It's now up to Seeley and Jordan to fight them with the help of two angels, Mark and Zeke.

I don't give away spoilers or too much of the plot in my reviews, but this was a fast-paced, action packed story sprinkled with humor. The characters were well developed both good and evil, adult and teenager. Ms. Constantine nailed her writing of normal teenage angst. Jordan must deal with a new school, trying to fit in with new friends (some of which may not be her friends) deciding if her feelings are for the handsome angel, Mark or the hot thrill seeking high school heartthrob all while being stalked by demons.

It was a perfect fit for those of us who love dark (a bit gory and graphic, but not overly so) paranormal tales. But beware, the wonderfully eerie ending will leave you wanting more.

At the first few pages of “Wickedly They Come” by Cathrina Constantine a reader is drawn into paranormal world where angels and demons fight a never-ending war to protect the human kind from darkness of evil. The story reminds us that evil never rests. Even when defeated, the evil will come back stronger and wickeder. Any move, comment or confiding in those Jordan thought of as her friends was a trap. Jordan and her mother, Seeley can point out demons in the crowd. They fight them, with the help of their assigned archangels. Jordan and her angel, Marcus, share the special bond. But when she decides to go to high school instead of being home-schooled, he follows in his teenage human body. Teenage girls drool over him while boys befriend him, but not every girl is an ordinary hormone spiked, with head in clouds. Ronan is more, she is a witch dabbling in dark powers. The Black Order makes her promises of giving her Marcus all to herself and she accepts. Will she help the devil or betray him?
Things get bad, really bad for both, Jordan and Ronan. Having angels on her side, Jordan survives, though it was close call for her. Ronan, on the other hand, disappears, presumed dead.

The ending of the book is eerie and unexpected and will leave you waiting on your toes for the conclusion in the next book.

Jordan watched her father die because her parents refused to let a cult consecrate her to Lucifer. Over the years, she trained with her mother and their guardian angels. She's a warrior for good with with a powerful desire to help people. At sixteen, Jordan finally gets a chance to go to high school and get a taste of the normal teenage life. Except nothing is ever going to be normal for her. Demons strive to gain more power and Heaven struggles to fight them. Jordan has the strength to make a difference. If she doesn't end up in the Devil's clutches herself.

A fantastic first book in this paranormal YA series. We have traditional demons and angels with a modern twist in a grand fight between good and evil. There are several layers in the plot. Tendrils of darkness have dipped in everywhere, and you wonder who to trust and what might come next.

Jordan has a fierce young voice. Her strength is amazing, but she is a teen after all and she desires a regular life. Her mother Seeley is admirable in that she continues the fight against evil as she can even after what happened to her husband. Markus is my favorite character and I can understand why the girls at school swoon over him. The villains are despicable. Perfect for this dark tale.

I'll definitely be picking up more books by Cathrina Constantine.

This was a fantastic book! I really enjoyed the main character Jordan and how she seemed to want a normal life even though she couldn't have one. I also liked how she always stuck to what she believed in. Markus was an interesting character, but I think one of my favorites was Thrill. He kept life interesting for Jordan. I also enjoyed the mother-daughter bond. I don't see a lot of that in YA - at least in a lot of the books I've read. It felt more genuine in this book - Seeley's love and concern for her daughter. Aside from the characters, the plot was riveting! It really kept me guessing all the way. I am definitely looking forward to reading the next book in this series!

Wickedly They Come is an intense, dark, won't want to put it down until you get to the end kind of novel. It was the sort of story that had me thinking and asking questions as I read. I was always happy to see my questions answered later on in the novel which made me smile because Ms. Constantine had set me up.

Jordan and her mother, Seely were wonderful characters and I found myself liking and rooting for them. They grew as individuals by the ending of the book and I enjoyed the transition. Saving humanity was their main focus and they took their destinies seriously.

Dealing with a teenager, even one who is a warrior and can kick demon ass can be difficult. Ms. Constantine portrayed this wonderfully. More than once I wanted to take Jordan by the nape of the neck and steer her in the direction she should go, but as a stubborn teenager she had to make mistakes and then live with the consequences.

I wasn't expecting the book to have romance, but I got some and it made me happy. Almost as happy as the vivid fight scenes.

One issue I had with the novel was the use of the omnipresent point of view. But once I got the grasp of what Ms. Constantine was doing, it was easier to adjust to as the novel unfolded.

If you are looking for a novel filled with action, teenage angst, good versus evil, and yes a little bit of romance, then Wickedly They Come is for you.
