When Kate Trillo finds her sister dead and the murderer still in her home, she gets back in touch with her magical roots and puts a curse on the murderer when he tells her his name. There's just one problem: He gave her the wrong name, and she's cursed his brother, an innocent man! In her quest to bring her sister's killer, Victor Fisher, to justice and undo the wrong she did to his brother, Ben, Kate travels to Greece, Turkey and, finally, Italy to find an ancient chalice and reconnect with her powers. Something Wicked (4), by Evelyn Vaughn, is a fast-paced battle between good and evil from beginning to end. Kate's character is real in that she makes mistakes and admits to being a bad person. Ben and Victor are well-drawn polar opposites.
