<<Blurb of Wicked Fate<<
What if you lived in fear of yourself?
For Mage McPherson being afraid of herself is just the norm. Thanks to that fear, being a loner in a small town never bothered the mysterious Mage. Once she received her secret abilities, she figured being alone was the safest way to be. That all changes during her sophomore year at Summerville High when Adam, her equally mysterious secret crush, starts to notice her.
Afraid that she might harm Adam, Mage must learn to either control or deny herself. With Adam by her side she's more powerful than she’s ever been, but is she powerful enough to defeat her worst nightmare? She learns a hard lesson about love and magic when her destiny comes to collect.
<<Review of Wicked Fate<<
Set in Summerville, SC, this book holds a special place in my heart. Mage is misunderstood and lonely, spending her free time isolated from the world, speaking only to the spirits that inhabit her home. It’s a lonely life for her. Instead of having one of those characters that makes you want to strangle her, Mage is a protagonist that we can all be proud to read about. She’s headstrong and smart, two characteristics that I find to be seriously lacking in a lot of books these days. No whimpering and whining for this chick!
And then there’s Adam...Mr. Yumtastic himself. Every girl’s dream: smart, handsome, and a genuinely nice guy. I literally wanted to pack my bags and head for Summerville in hopes of finding him for myself. I know, Mage has staked her claim, but a girl can dream, can’t she??
Okay, so let me first say this: Tabatha Vargo, I seriously hope you’re already writing book two because the ending...Grrrr! Mrs. Vargo takes you on a ride that is both magical and realistic at the same time. There is that whimsical quality, like Mage and Adam’s first Christmas (insert AWWWW), but there’s also so many facets that are rooted right here, making it accessible to everyone. You feel as if you could be just like Mage. The characters are well written and entrancing and the story is fast paced and sucks you in. An immensely well written book that I believe has the potential to take over the YA world.
I don’t think I can put into words how much I enjoyed this book. It may seem as if I endorse every book I read, but that is not the case. But today, for Wicked Fate, I’m telling you that if you don’t read it, you’re seriously missing out. Now, I must head out so that I may do some harassing of Mrs. Vargo to get that next book into my hot hands!
Tabatha has been writing since she could pick up a pencil. Her first publication was a little poem in her elementary school paper, from that point on she was hooked. When she was a teenager, she traded in her girly magazines for personalized writing notebooks.
At nineteen, she met her own personal prince charming and writing took a back burner for a while. She is now married to that prince and the mother of a beautiful six-year-old princess/rock star. Once her daughter was born, writing came back into her life, and she finished her very first novel in May of 2009.
She is pursuing a Bachelors in English and hopes to one day teach while continuing to write.
As a stay-at-home mom and full-time student, Tabatha enjoys the freedom of spending a good bit of her days doing what she loves the most…writing.
