ONE FOR THE WICKED by Karina Cooper is an interesting Paranormal Romance/Science Fiction/Fantasy. #5 in the "Dark Mission" series and the finale.While, "One For the Wicked" may be read as a stand alone, I feel you need to read all four to better understand the characters, and the plot. See "Blood of the Wicked","Lure of the Wicked","No Rest for the Witches(A Novella)","Sacrifice the Wicked",and "Wicked Lies". Follow,Dr. Kayleigh Lauderdale and Shawn Lowe on a journey of love with a bit of betrayal along the way. Filled with witches,enemies,the resistance,revenge,passion,desire,prejudice,secrets,betrayal and of course love. What happens when a witch meets a sexy bodyguard,"One For the Wicked",of course. A wonderful and powerful conclusion to the "Dark Mission" series,and one if you have followed along you will hate to see gone. Ms. Cooper is a wonderful storyteller,who using engaging characters and a great storyline. With a few twist and turns added in for extra measure. If you enjoy paranormal,romance, science fiction,fantasy and love than you will not regret picking up "One For The Wicked". Received for an honest review from the publisher.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:
*eARC provided by Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review

Oh Karina, way to go out with a bang! So intense, so HOT, so...absolutely amazing!! While I am super sad to see the series end, I am beyond honored to have been able to enjoy the ride, and thank you for leaving us all with this epic piece of your imagination. :)

So, how to sum up for those reading this review who have yet to take the DARK MISSION plunge? The series is set in a delightfully dark & somewhat dystopian world where it's church against 'other' and prejudice and bias have left the witches fighting for their lives. However, it's so much more than just the church bigots and the witches, and each and every book of the series revealed more and more complexity, mystery, and mayhem - all thrown together with some seriously emotional moments and incredible romance.

Our hero has been hell bent on revenge against our heroine's father - the man solely responsible for turning his life upside down sixteen years previously, so when he's presented with the opportunity to use his enemy's daughter as leverage, he jumps at the chance.

Unfortunately, it's not as easy as all that... Kaleigh and Shawn have an instant attraction, and no matter how much either of them fight against it, knowing that giving in goes against everything they've respectively been taught throughout their lives, nature takes its course and shakes things up (in more ways than one).

So how does it all end? Oh come on, I can't tell you that! You're just going to have to read it for yourself. I CAN tell you that Karina wraps things up beautifully with a strong couple who fights hard for their HEA while fighting just as hard to stay true to themselves, she brings back previous characters, which allows the reader necessary closure and ties up some lose ends from earlier installments, and she delivers it all in an action packed, intriguing, romantic, emotional, and utterly entertaining read that she should be very, very proud of.

LITERAL ADDICTION gives One for the Wicked an easy 5 Skulls and would highly recommend it. And while the books can be read as stand-alones, I do strongly suggest that you read the series from the beginning - in order - starting with the prequel novella, Before the Witches. Trust me, it makes things even better! :)

Oh, and random side note...I will never look at my studded leather cuff bracelets the same way ever again! ;-) [Now if that didn't make you want to read it just to see what the heck I'm talking about, I don't know what will!] Take the DARK MISSION plunge, you won't be disappointed. ( )
