Wicked Grove by Alexia Purdy

Wicked Grove (Wicked Grove, #1)Book Description:
Most places, supernatural nuisances are easy to exterminate, but in Wicked Grove, magic runs wild.

As operatives of the elite Wicked Grove Supernatural Regulatory Agency, three fiercely independent and unstoppable siblings, Amy, Jay, and Craig, know the risks that come with the job. Get contaminated by one of the magicals, and you’re screwed. Scratched by a werewolf? You’re going to be howling come full moon. Bitten by a vampire? You might as well stamp “bloodsucker” on your face. You certainly won’t be welcomed at the agency anymore. It’s a no-brainer.

When Amy is captured by a malevolent faery tribe unlike any encountered before, the race is on to rescue her before she’s assimilated and lost forever. These creatures are not easily swayed, but there is one who can possibly help her escape. He also wants to return to the human realm, and he is tied to the faery tribe. It might backfire, but with Amy’s memories fading with each passing moment, she’s forced to make a desperate choice which could incite an unprecedented preternatural war and destroy all of Wicked Grove.

This is the first installation of a new, breakneck, supernatural thriller series from USA Today Bestselling Author Alexia Purdy.

My Thoughts:
Absolutely loved this book!  Awesome start to a promising new series.  The 'triplets' are the best supernatural hunters that the agency has.  Craig, Amy and Jay have a connection that they learned from their mother, but possibly it runs deeper than any of them imagined.  When Amy is captured by the faeries, her brothers aren't going to rest until she is back and safe.  Amy has always been strong willed and is going to escape, even if she will be the first ever do successfully do so.
There was a wonderful mix of characters here.  A lot happened and I loved getting to see Hayden again.  I cannot wait to see where the author takes this next, I have my hopes but we shall see!  Loved the story overall and the little details.  Heart break, family ties, revenge and  a whole host of other things are crammed into this book and you won't want to put it down.
It was a 5/5.  I will wait impatiently for the next in this series. Thank you to the author for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
