"Successfully blending science fiction, fantasy, horror, romance, and coming-of-age genres, the novel is intended as volume one in a three-part series."
"...the story’s original characters, well-constructed plot, moving portrayal of teenaged angst and lust, and effective blending of genres should satisfy young adult readers looking for a fresh new fantasy series."
"Sweet Desire, Wicked Fate is presented in a gripping way, and is guaranteed to keep readers on the edge of their seats. The characters in this book are well thought out, and it is a delight to meet some really unique and original characters along the way. I also enjoyed the romantic element of the teenage couple in the book. Jaden, as the central protagonist, is immensely likeable and one automatically finds oneself rooting for her. Overall, Wray Ardan has written a compelling story with superbly drawn teenage characters, and ones that young readers will especially connect with. An enjoyable read!"
