Enter Sara’s most mysterious client and occasional lover, the wickedly sexy Magician, with a job that could yield the ultimate payday. All she’ll have to do is get behind Vatican walls… and steal the Devil himself.
But play with the Devil and you’re bound to get burned.
Pressure mounts for Sara to join the Magician’s ancient and mysterious Arcana Council, as militant forces unleashed by even darker powers seek to destroy all magic—including the young psychics Sara is desperate to keep safe. The Council may be their only hope. . . but it could also expose Sara’s own dark past.
From the twisting catacombs of Rome to the neon streets of Vegas, Sara confronts ancient enemies, powerful demigods, a roiling magical underworld about to explode… and immortal passions that might require the ultimate sacrifice. But oh, what a way to go.
No matter how the cards play out, things are about to get Wilde.
Our heroine is Sara and she has the ability to find and retrieve anything using her tarot deck to help her. It's a dark world she lives in with psychics being kidnapped and their organs harvested for black magic rituals. Sara is determined to help save as many as she can but this job working for Armaeus, aka the Magician, seems set to pit Sara against the Vatican and that's not a war anyone wants ! Okay, so go into the Vatican, find a stolen box, and bring it back, now that shouldn't be too difficult. Oh maybe there's the slight problem of the devil to contend with, but hey all in a day’s work right?
Oh boy, where do I start? Getting Wilde was fast paced and a very strong beginning to a series that's going on my wish list. I liked the feisty heroine and she seemed fearless at times. I imagined her as a cross between Indiana Jones and Lara Croft as it didn't matter what was thrown at her, she ruggedly stumbled on. The scenes in the catacombs really stood out and I could picture it easily in my mind. There is definitely chemistry between Sara and the Magician but can he be trusted? Those of the Arcane, like the Magician, are described as demigods and they do seem to have remarkable abilities. To say more here would ruin the book for others but in this world not everything is quite what it seems. Sara is tough but she is also compassionate and she certainly goes on a Wilde ride (pun intended!). Please write quickly Ms Stark as I can't wait to read more.
I have discovered a prequel One Wilde Night so I'm off to click my finger and urge my fellow paranormal fans to do the same!
