Wild and Wicked Things by Francesca May

Wild and Wicked Things by Francesca May is full of dark witchy magic with a slow burn sapphic romance.


World War I has just ended, and Annie Mason has arrived on Crow Island to settle her late father’s estate. She quickly falls into a world of dark magic and feels a strong connection to her enigmatic neighbour.

Review of Wild and Wicked Things

This tale alternates between Annie and Emmeline’s perspective with a few others here and there. The writing style is very atmospheric and captures the era well.

Although the writing is beautiful, I felt distant from the characters. Not many of them were particularly likeable, even knowing their origin stories. Usually, I don’t mind reading from unlikeable characters pov’s if they are interesting, but with this one, they felt one-dimensional.

The pacing went at a snail’s pace as well. Not much happens for the first two-thirds of the book, but things did eventually get exciting near the end.

I recommend this book to those looking for a sapphic historical fantasy read.
