Goodreads Summary

Wicked Circle is the fifth installment of the Persephone Alcmedia series. I finally, FINALLY, was content with Seph’s and Johnny’s relationship. I honestly loved them together and couldn’t find two more perfect lovebirds than them. Once Johnny changed into his werewolf king position… he changed his personality, as well. Sadly, it wasn’t for the better. He says things that start ruining the lovely relationship and I’m really angered about it. This book has multiple POVs, not just Johnny and Seph, but others, too. At first, I was like “What. Is. This. MADNESS!?” but after a little while it was nice to see what everyone’s POV was and it wasn’t just one continuous outlook. I felt like I got to know the characters much better this way.  When Seph and Johnny are having problems, Menessos comes swooping in to be a shoulder to cry on. This just complicates the love triangle and it’s harder on her already complicated life.
The plotline was great. Even though there are tons going on, I never felt lost or like something was out of place. I really think the different POV’s helped everything move along at a rapid pace. It always kept me on my toes. I wanted to yell at Johnny almost all of the time, but I was still interested in what everyone was doing and saying. This is definitely my second favorite book out of the series. The first was the last installation when Johnny was trying to get his memory and powers back. Sadly, he didn’t get his memory and only got his powers. I find that to be okay! Like I’ve been saying the whole series, I’m picking up the next one, and you should too!

  1. Switching character perspective is always a tricky venture. I love when it's done right, but if it's done wrong, it can really pull you out of a story.

    This sounds like a series that I really need to backpedal on and pick up! I love when I come across a series that alreay has a good amount of back books. Makes it easy to BINGE! ;-)
