The only thing worse than being a witch is living with one.

Camellia’s adopted mother wants Cam to grow up to be just like her. Problem is, Mom’s a seriously wicked witch.

Cam’s used to stopping the witch’s crazy schemes for world domination. But when the witch summons a demon, he gets loose—and into Devon, the cute new boy at school.

Now Cam’s suddenly got bigger problems than passing Algebra. Her friends are getting zombiefied. Their dragon is tired of hiding in the RV garage. For being a shy boy-band boy, Devon is sure kissing a bunch of girls. And a phoenix hidden in the school is going to explode on the night of the Halloween Dance.

To stop the demon before he destroys Devon’s soul, Cam might have to try a spell of her own. But if she’s willing to work spells like the witch...will that mean she’s wicked too?

My Opinion

Cam’s momma is on a mission to find the hidden phoenix and prevent the city from burning down. Every hundred years the phoenix burns and with it everything for miles. Sure this will also allow her to take over the city but hey you can’t help but give kudos to her for trying. In order to save the city, she summons a demon. One that gets lose and lands itself in Devon’s body. Devon is a new boy at school that Cam has a crush on.

Cam’s momma keeps trying to teach her magic yet she resists. This is due to being traumatized as a child when she stumbled upon her momma casting a spell. Ever since Cam has thought she was being held captive by an evil witch that tricked her parents. She stays to protect the dragon and werewolf that the witch has caged. Cam is a bit of a wow is me kinda character. Devon the one who is possessed tends to go with the follow, which is a bit on the strange side. I mean he doesn’t freak out at all, instead is like yeah I’m possessed. 

I was so excited about this book, finally a new witch’s tale. One that includes demons… sign me up. Maybe my expectations for Seriously Wicked were too high. I found the story lackluster, I kept reading it because I honestly wanted it to pick up and capture me. It never did. I had issues with a few things within the story. Witchipedia? Seriously this is where she gets most of her information from? A mean girl who is named Sparkle? Umm… come on.
