Product description

Product Description


Three Brothers are born into a line of witches that extends back to Salem, Massachusetts and beyond that to Ancient Egypt. But being a witch in a mortal world does not come without consequence and there is always the deadly risk of exposure.

The beautiful, contemporary and gothic sprawling metropolis of Treadwell, Deane County is a place of mystical energy and power, and its mortal inhabitants are ignorant of their Supernatural neighbours. Aaron, Noah and Perry Pogue, along with Pilar and her Romani Coven are Treadwell’s guardians, fighting the forces of evil against Rafaela, the sinister Avatarian Demigoddess. When the Pogue Brothers’ power is compromised and they struggle to put their differences aside, the city’s last line of defence rests with Pilar and the Romani Triad – whose congregation is not without its own, Machiavellian problems.

4.0 out of 5 stars Complex supernatural roller coaster! 8 July 2017
By Jo Bird - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This book shows so much promise for a debut novel. The language is so beautifully descriptive in places with the author using visual and sound descriptions, particularly colour and music, to bring the story to life. An example is the supernatural storm over the town of Treadwell where I felt as though I was in the middle of it. The concept of the fight between different supernatural factions, the Pogue witches and the Romani among others aligning no with each side, is brilliant and brave. It would have been difficult for an experienced writer to pull off such a detailed work... and it's so close. I would desperately like to see it edited and beta read by experienced people, to tidy it up and present it in it's best light.

I admit I got confused by the sheer number of characters, their powers and often who they were fighting and I never really caught up with all of them. It would benefit from the character list being in the front of the book (I didn't find it until the end) and a family tree to aid the reader. I also found the plot a little confusing for much the same reason. There's so much going on and the action cuts from place to place and character to character quite fast with little or no linkage. But don't let that put you off, this book is wild action from start to finish, a proverbial roller coaster ride, and the basic plot premise can be followed well enough. If you're a fan of the supernatural, witches, demons, vampires, then this has everything you need.

There is a cliffhanger ending which, given the complexity of the book, was not a surprise and not much of the plot was tied up at the end. I would have preferred more answers, less complexity and no cliffhanger. However I did enjoy the book and the characters, locations and action are wonderfully described. A solid 4stars.

I was given a copy of this book by the author in return for an honest and unbiased review.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great Debut 6 May 2017
By MishkaGirl - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a debut novel by T. R. Kester and a good start to what looks to be a promising writing career.
The Pogues and the Romani take center stage in this story which revolves around the magical town of Treadwell.
The story has loads of action - supernatural, kidnap, magic, betrayal - the mind boggles.
There are some editing/repetition issues but the writing overall from a new author is very, very good.
I am not an avid reader or fan of supernatural but I did enjoy this well told tale.
Note: The story ends on a cliffhangar, there are so many questions yet to be answered.
Overall, a solid 4.5* read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Buffy meets Charmed 14 June 2017
By TheVampireBookworm - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
All those of you who were around when Buffy and Charmed were popular, you'll surely recognize their influence on this book. These two universes merged together (with the emphasis on the witch part, sadly for us vampire lovers) and added even more creatures, making it a unique mix.
Tha's what I saw potential in - the plethora of cool creatures with awesome abilities making the book interesting. However, too many can be a bad thing. Unfortunately, the author kept adding so many characters throughout the book that neither of them got enough story into their background and thus their appearance in the book felt shallow and artificial. For a long time I couldn't wrap my mind around them all and felt confused by the constant addition of more characters and then I realised that I couldn't develop any feelings toward any of them (be it negative or positive) and because of that I couldn't care less who won at the end. Which is sad because when I read a book about the battle of two sides I want to be able to choose and cheer for one of them. Here I couldn't.
Speaking of battles - that's something the author does well. Pretty much in every chapter there is a fight between two parties including a lot of effects and moves. Those of you who are into this kind of thing, you'll be happy. To me, it felt like a script for a movie or the said TV shows. The action was great but sometimes it felt like the plot was on vacation and the purpose of the book's existence was mainly for these scenes (those of you familiar with Greek drama imagine this: exposition, rising action, rising action, rising action,...oh wait, did we just jump right to the catastrophe?!).
You know how I hate trilogies and other -logies because I feel like the publishers just want to squeeze more money out of people and force the authors to artificially prolong a story which would be wonderful in one book but comes out too diluted in a series? Here, it was the exact opposite. If the author focused more on fewer characters and developed the story by putting in more background info, it would be a very adventurous series. But in just one book it felt rushed and not consistent.
4.0 out of 5 stars You guys I really liked this book 14 December 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Note: I was given this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Something Wicked is the first book by T.R. (Troy) Kester and I believe that he is an self-published author. The story revolves around two strong magical families the Pogues and the Romani, the Pogues are witches while the Romani are a witch/gypsie hybrid. They protect the world from evil magical beings and their main location is in the fictional town of Treadwell, Deane County. Treadwell is a magic haven and there is something else special about it and your gonna have to read to find out.

You guys I really liked this book, it is chock-filled with the supernatural. Also let it be know that I am a bit of a geek. I love all the geeky stuff like Star Wars (original trilogy), Harry Potter, anime, manga, Star Trek (new stuff), comics and graphic novels (because they are two different things), magic and so much more. I am also a big fan of action movies so imagine my delight that this book has so many battle scenes.

I really enjoyed the story so much and I hated to give Something Wicked the rating 3.75 stars. Unfortunately I had to give it a lower rating because I had some issues with this book. Some of the facts about the characters got mixed up and there was repeating in parts where I feel it was unneeded. The main work was goo it's just that the writing needs to be fine tuned and it needs editing a little more. I know that Troy will improve and I am looking forward to that.

I love that Something Wicked reminded me of Charmed (American TV series about witches) and had all of these pop-culture references, stuff I actually knew. The characters were multilingual and Troy put the word mean in the paragraph, loved that. There were so many supernatural creatures mentioned and the different levels of witches and demons. The huge family trees of these two clans was amazing and I wish Troy would put it in the book because you wouldn't believe who is related to who.

Overall 3.75 stars

Something Wicked had magic, family issues, betrayal, magical powers, loads of supernaturals, other realms, kidnappings, Buffy references and other pop-culture, "romance", evil plots, high level fighting skills, flashbacks, assassins and so much more. This book was like an tribute to the stuff I love. Something Wicked ended on a cliff-hanger, so many things were left unfinished and the questions I have need to be answered. I look forward to the next book in this series is Something Secret.
