Publisher's Summary

A destined prophecy: "The White Warrior will be one with Lucifer and God will weep."

Haunting visions and supernatural talents are the norm for the 16-year-old warrior, Jordan, and her mother Seeley. Together with their formidable angels they find themselves in peril when a wicked sorcerer is determined to fulfill the prophecy to his lord, Lucifer.

After an ominous vision of spirits inhabiting teenagers in a local school, Jordan enrolls in the social culture of teendom at Elma High to combat soulless demons. She encounters Mark, a mysterious new classmate, who is hell bent on keeping her unscathed from the forces of evil.

The battle between Heaven and Hell is escalating - and Earth is their battleground.

    "Interesting but a little confusing"
    Would you be willing to try another book from Cathrina Constantine? Why or why not?

    Possibly but it would be fairly low on my list as I have so many other good books to read.


    What didn’t you like about Andrea Emmes’s performance?

    She sounded like an electronic voice, the reading was quite unnatural.


    Any additional comments?

    An interesting story but a little confusing in places, with a lot of characters. It felt a bit like I was starting in the middle of a series. Jordan doesn't make a very convincing heroine. For someone with such power, she seems so careless and often makes things worse instead of helping. I enjoyed the different relationships she had with her possible boyfriend, Thrill, and her angel, Marcus.
    I received this audiobook at no-cost from Audiobookworm Promotions. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

    Story
    "a classic fight between good and evil"

    Wickedly They Come the first book in a series called The Wickedly Series written by Cathrina Constantine. Sixteen-year-old Jordan and her mother, Seeley, are demon fighting warriors. Both have personal angel guardians that protect and help them fight demons and evil. Unfortunately, Jordan has always been a target for Lucifer and demons because of a prophecy that states that she will become one with Lucifer, a big win for evil against God. But as Jordan, gets older, her personal needs change and she decides to stop home-schooling and attend the local high school, with the added hope of combating the increasing evil that is gripping teens. Now, even as she struggles to keep herself safe outside of school, Jordan quickly enters a group of aspiring teenage witches in an attempt to save them from their forays into evil.

    This novel was is a combination between a coming of age story and a fight between good and evil demons. The fight between good and evil is classic, with God, Lucifer, angels, and demons. Jordan and Seeley are devout Christians and the fight between good and evil is intertwined with that. Jordan and Seeley were full characters, but every other character did not seem to have a lot of depth. There was a lot of well-developed action and gore, which kept the story moving and exciting. This is also Jordan's coming of age story. Jordan leaves home-schooling to enter high school and it allows her to fight Lucifer’s minions on her own and on her own terms for the first time. However,  I did find Jordan’s actions frustrating because she seemed to be rushing into things too quickly. I think that this feeling came from the fact that a lot of Jordan’s training during her childhood was not really part of the novel.  The high school portion of the story is fairly accurate, complete with normal teenage drama, angst and intense crushes, which made the story believable.

    The narration by Andrea Emmes was really good. She did a great job of capturing the teenage sass of the high school girls as well as the evil voices of different demonic characters. The production quality was good as well. I would recommend this novel to anyone who likes young adult paranormal novels about fighting evil.

    "Story was OK."

    This was a good read and I enjoyed it.... I just can't put my finger on exactly why I didn't love it! This deals with Jordan and her mother, Seely, and the fallout, for them, from when Jordan's dad changed his allegiance from The Black Order! The Black Order don't take this lightly and try to do everything in their dark powers to make Jordan one of them. But Jordan, along with her mum and their guardian angels, fight back.

    Even though this was an extremely fast paced and intense read, I found it lacking in something. I'm not sure what, but I know that I never really absorbed the story as much as I could have. I found it hard to like Jordan at times and found it hard to believe some of the things she did! Ex, she went to someones house, by herself, even though she knew this person to be evil! Of course, things happen after, but I just could believe that she would have done that! She seemed a little too savvy to do something so stupid.

    Same with the rest of the characters. I never really liked any of them and didn't care too much about them. I felt like there was something missing here too! Maybe it was just me, but the overall feeling of the book was just Meh! I liked it, just didn't love it.

    Now, the narration is a different story. Andrea Emmes reads extremely well. She has a variety of tones and cadences and knows how to draw a reader in. I loved her portrayal of Jordan and thought she really brought the story to life. it's just a pity I couldn't connect with it!

    *I received a free coy of this but voluntarily reviewed it. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.*

    "Swept away"

    Loved the story. It swept me away. Especially from midway on. It was a tad wordy in some parts. The descriptions of the fights were brilliant. I especially loved that the narrator was very distinct with the voices so it was easy to tell who was speaking.

    "Not up to par with Supernatural"

    This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBoom dot com.

    Audible has this in the religious section, which I feel is misplaced. This is more fantasy. The story was fast paced, but I felt the cast was a little too large. From the beginning it was difficult for me to adapt to everyone. I was hoping we'd see the main character transition to the powerful warrior, but I felt it wasn't quite up to my expectations. The narration was great, though.

    "Great Story"
    If you could sum up Wickedly They Come in three words, what would they be?

    Fun, Exciting and Action-packed


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Wickedly They Come?

    The battle where everything comes to a head


    What does Andrea Emmes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She really embodied the characters that she read. I would listen to her again.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I couldn't stop listening. It was an amazing story and the author is just simply great!


    Any additional comments?

    Wow! This book really grabs you from the beginning. The way Jack comes into the story all the way to the very end. I love how the author hints as there being more to this story even though we get an ending that is very explosive. This was my first book from this author and I am happy to say it won't be my last. This is a story that has many characters in it but you never lose track of what is going on. There is a little bit for everyone. I was rooting hard for Jordan and Seeley. Not only a definite book to read but enjoy immensely.

    "A generally alright paranormal first in a series"
    Any additional comments?

    I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook for my review.

    My quick-fire thoughts: This book won an award?

    And now for more detail, I suppose.

    Look, I'm a huge fan of shows like Supernatural and Buffy - these are perfection in my mind of paranormal awesome. So I like to read books in the genre because of this. But not all books quite live up to my expectations. Like this one.

    The premise was interesting, a girl who is destined to be a warrior against evil as the evil ones want to consecrate her to the Devil. Ok, good start. I'm intrigued. But the plot itself really didn't show how this girl is to be a warrior. She spent most of the time almost getting killed, and then just sitting around. Not much actually happened as far as Jordan becoming something awesome as I was expecting her to do.

    Let's talk about the general cast of characters - Jordan's mom is the main warrior, yet she also didn't quite do much to protect her daughter. Who really protected this girl? Angels. YES! A book with angels. But, and this is spoilery, but the actual victory over evil dude part? An accident. Or, it sure sounded like one. Ooh let me run away and oops trip and die. Not quite the epic battle of bravery and warrior girl proving her worth, is it? And our new frienemy witch girl who appears to play for both good and evil? I was hoping for some character development on her end, but she pretty much was mean girl with witchy powers and isn't redeemable.

    Now, moving on to the audio portion of our discussion. I liked the audio. The narrator did a good job with the voices and the pacing and was pleasant to listen to. I did find myself zoning out and needing to back up a few times, but I think that might be more due to the plot not gripping me than the narration.

    Overall, I don't have much to say huh? General 3 stars, good effort, maybe a good start to a series that might end up awesome, who knows.

    Anyone else read this?

    "It will only work for teenage girls"
    Any additional comments?

    I have received a copy of this book in audio format from the narrator in exchange for an honest review.

    Jack belonged to the Black Order, but changed sides after falling in love with Seeley and having Jordan, their daughter. The members of the Black order could not take this and killed Jack, promising to hunt Jordan too, to consecrate her to the Order. Jordan has been homeschooled for several years until she turns sixteen, when Seeley decides to send her to high school. There, Marcus, her guardian angel will take care of her and defend her against the dangerous people from the Black Order.

    What I liked from this book was how the characters were constructed. Jordan and Seeley were very well depicted and their relationship felt real. The rest of characters were plain, and I was especially annoyed by Ronan and her girl friends. I guess their behavior is normal in sixteen year old bullies, especially among the girls, but the group dynamic would make the book to work only among teenage girls. Other YA books could be enjoyed by other age groups, but I don't think this one would. Not with me at least.

    I had troubles to get into the story, but I think it was due to several things. First, I did not completely understand the motivations of the Black Order to get Jordan. Okay, her father was a traitor, but that does not seem to be to me enough motive. Is Jordan special in any way? We will probably know more about that in future books, but in this one it is not very clear. I just expected something bigger to be gained or lost. Second, Marcus was appearing and disappearing all the time without explanation, and it was like it just served Constantine to make things complicated to Jordan at certain point, kind of deus ex machine.

    And third. Okay, this is personal and will probably be different for other people. I am an atheist, and I find the fact of talking about god as a real thing (even in a fantasy book) a bit disturbing, or more like something that makes me roll my eyes again and again. Also, the need of Jordan to check with the priest and be assisted all the time by a guardian angel is a bit... childish. I do not want to be disrespectful to believers, but I think we should all try to fend for ourselves, and a character in a book should inspire the reader, and that is, taking the reigns of her life and troubles, to gain responsibility, and fight, without expecting somebody to save her skin.

    I missed some moments about their daily life not related to the hunt, like Jordan in class. It is like they spend the whole book running from the Black Order, which is true, but I think it would have helped to set a frame for the story.

    At some point we hear the name of 'Ronan' instead of 'Jordan' (6:14:58) and I had to go back to double check it. I guess the editor missed this.

    Andrea Emmes' narration helped to bring the characters to life, and she made it a very enjoyable listen. I had troubles at times though, to discern between Jordan and her mother, which made difficult to follow a couple of conversations. For the rest, the narration made the book better.

    All in all, it was an okay book. It will mainly work for teenage girls, I think, and the religious aspects may not sit well with everybody.

    Three starts for the book, four stars for the narration.

    Good start to a series. Overall an interesting, entertaining and enjoyable listen. It's a fast paced, engaging story that is constantly moving forward with plenty of suspense, action and twists .

    Audible has the story listed as Religion & Spirituality, that needs to be changed, in my opinion this is a paranormal/fantasy thriller.

    A game of cat and mouse between Angels and Demons/Heaven & Hell in a classic good vs. evil story. Sorcerer's, Angels and Demons. A good, interesting cast of characters both good & evil.

    Jordan is walking a fine line. She would like nothing more than to just be a normal teenager. She is anything but normal. She is a White Warrior chosen by God to fight demons. Her father was a member of the Black Order( a satanic cult) and changed his allegiance after falling in love and the birth of his daughter. Her father has died and the Black Order wants to claim Jordan. They have a prophecy to fulfill and Jordan is the key.

    I'm looking forward to the next book to see where the author takes the story.

    The story does not always flow smoothly. There were a couple of times especially in the beginning of the story I had to rewind because I thought I missed something.

    Andrea Emmes did a good job with the narration. Her voice fit the story. She has a distinct voice that is easily recognizable. Clearly spoken with an even pace. She has some really good character voices, but there are times other characters (Jordan & Seeley) sound the same making it difficult to always know which character is speaking. She did however make the characters and story come to life through her narration. Overall an enjoyable listen.

    I was given this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher at my request and voluntarily provided this review.
