Title: The Wicked
Series: The Magical Sword, book two
Author: Stacey Kennedy
Nexi Jones knows two things-being half Guardian is tough-being half Witch is simply problematic. With her Guardian duties put on hold, she begins the gruelling task of discovering her magical abilities, which tend to be unpredictable, at the best of times. At least, she has her luscious Guardian, Kyden to keep her grounded. That is, until the military-built, Ryker returns with a keen interest in being a constant thorn in her backside. With enough trouble controlling her powers-the added rivalry between the two tough Guardians leaves Nexi in urgent demand of a fire extinguisher. But when tragedy strikes the very core of the Otherworld, Nexi needs to shape up as she lands herself knee deep into vampire society-a world run by vampire Mistresses who offer their assistance in unearthing a deadly plot of revenge. But as the truth begins to unravel, Nexi begins to discover that the Otherworld isn't the only place where Supernaturals exist-and there is something far darker than thirsty vampires lurking within the shadows...
Nexi is back in The Wicked, book 2 of The Magical Sword series. If you thought The Willow was great, you will soon find out that Stacey Kennedy was just getting warmed up. This book is everything the Willow was times 100. The romance and sexual encountes are vamped up, the action is explosive, the mystery is nail biting and if you loved all of the characters before, you are sure to enjoy the new additions even more.
We pick up where we left off, with Nexi discovering her inner-witch and finally honing in on her powers. Problem is, she can’t control it. In walks Briar. A beautiful foul-mouthed witch with spunk. She helps teach Nexi control, and will have you laughing with her sauciness. Along with her new teacher, is a new pet. Attuning to your witch also seems to bear friuit with the ability to connect with a cat and that is how Nexi gets Willow. A sassy, princess of a cat that chooses Nexi as its caretaker, or the other was around if you ask Willow. As Nexi tunes into her powers, she realizes she is more powerful then anyone could have imagined with the ability to do things no other witch could do. Her life seems to be moving in all different directions, but all is well because she has her rock to steady her, Kyden. He is there every step of the way for Nexi, sometimes a little too protective, he proves his love by forcing himself to take a step back and give Nexi the reins of Independence she thrives on, while still being a complete bad-ass *swoon* Even though he lets her take the lead, he also won't let anyone move on his girl including equally handsome and total rival Ryker. Other that having to keep her jealous boyfriend and Ryker from killing each other, her life is still good, if not a little crazy until her increasing powers. That is until The Otherworld is hit with numerous murders all bathed in mystery. The murders are adding up, the supernatural world is in an uproar and Nexi's life hangs in the balance of it all when an evil witch, Astoria, with incredible power comes for her; and Magnus, the leader of the Underworld wants her to join him. Will she be able to defeat Astoria and the lure for power that Magnus offers or will she succumb to evil, or even worse…death?

This book is rated 5 fangs!
All I can say is that this book is Amazing! I already re-read it twice, so that in itself is saying something - I'm not usually a re-reader. Nexi is witty and always tells it like it is! I love kick-ass heroines with equally bad-ass heroes that try keep up with them!
