Wicked Crown by Luna Joya, the first installment in The Wicked series, is a captivating fusion of urban fantasy and romance that plunges readers into a mesmerizing world brimming with enchantment, magic, and intricately developed characters. The story revolves around supermodel Vori and Perry, a former high-flying lawyer with a shadowy past. They find themselves reluctantly partnering in an extraordinary quest that leads them into the mystical and perilous realm of the Goblin Court. Vori's binding blood vow to the ancient witch Baba Yaga compels her to seek six amethyst stones, and, in a bid to evade an arranged marriage, she persuades Perry to become her fake husband. What unfolds is a roller-coaster of supernatural escapades, where sparks fly between the protagonists as they navigate the treacherous political landscape of the royal Goblin Court, confront a menacing adversary, and unearth their intertwined history.

Luna Joya excels in delivering a meticulously structured plot that seamlessly interlaces fantasy, romance, and suspense. The pacing is masterfully orchestrated, with tension escalating at precisely the right moments and an abundance of action to keep readers perched on the edge of their seats. The main characters are multi-dimensional, and their evolution as individuals and as a couple is both heartwarming and emotionally resonant. Joya adeptly delves into themes of trust, redemption, and the inexorable pull of destiny, making the story a blend of the magical and the relatable. Wicked Crown is an enthralling page-turner, showcasing Luna Joya's storytelling prowess and leaving readers eagerly awaiting the next chapter in this spellbinding series.
