Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite

Wickedly They Come, The Wickedly Series, Book 1 is a Christian-based young adult contemporary fantasy written by Cathrina Constantine. Jordan was a young child when she and her mother, Seeley, confronted The Black Order in an attempt to rescue Jack, Jordan's father and Seeley's husband. Asa Trebane was furious with Jack who had been his protege until he renounced his allegiance to the devil. While Jack died despite their best efforts, they were still able to release him from the cross he'd been nailed upon. As he lay dying, he told them where to find his manuscript, and his guardian angel told Seeley and Jordan about Jack's struggles against the proliferation of satanic cults. With the help of their guardian angels, the mother and daughter continue his efforts; however, Asa Trebane still considers Jordan his to consecrate to Lucifer.

Cathrina Constantine's young adult contemporary paranormal fantasy, Wickedly They Come, The Wickedly Series, Book 1, is a fast-paced and action-packed story about a mother/daughter team whose lives are devoted to fighting Lucifer's minions on earth and warning anyone who'll listen about the ever-present dangers they face. Seeley and Jordan are complex and believable characters, as are their two guardian angels, Zeke and Markus. Wickedly They Come is also a coming of age story as it shows the previously home-schooled young woman interacting with her peers for just about the first time. Constantine's battle sequences are dynamic and a lot of fun to follow, and her demons are suitably awful and terrifying. This is a well-written fantasy which, while predominantly Christian-based, is suitable for contemporary fantasy readers regardless of their religious background. It's well-written, has outstanding characters, and a convincing plot. Wickedly They Come, The Wickedly Series, Book 1 is highly recommended.
