More like 4.5 Stars. I really liked the tension and chemistry between Parker and Simon. As I've said before, characters always sell me on a book, pretty much regardless of plot. But the plot in Sacrifice the Wicked is also wonderful. You really feel the climax of the series building. Each page turned has more and more tension escalating. It was really hard putting this one down and forcing myself to sleep between reads. Beautifully done, Karina. Another book I've loved!
