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.
