The bottom line: A fun, dark, magical debut, I really enjoyed Hexed, though there seemed to be some minor pacing issues--on the whole, it was a lovely book! Highly recommended!
This book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Indie Blackwood seems to have it all: a hot boyfriend, a prime spot on the cheerleading squad, popularity. Never mind that her mother is a bit eccentric (and that's putting it mildly) or that cheer is like hell when best friend, Bianca, gets in a pissy mood. But when a mysterious Bible that her mother is weirdly possessive of is stolen, she sees a boy die right before her eyes. Suddenly a participant in a war that happens behind the scenes, Indie must gather her courage.. Or it might just be more than her social status at stake..
What I enjoyed:
-Indie, the hilarious, smart-ass main character--I could really picture hanging with her in high school, and I found myself laughing aloud at her antics more than once
-Bishop, the hot guy that Indie becomes close to in her quest to save her family--and herself--he was a real riot
-The premise of this novel was really cool--a witch that didn't know she was a witch!
-The humor in this novel really made it shine--I highly enjoyed it
-There were a lot of cool action scenes, especially as the end of the book neared
-Indie's weird, lovable mother--she was a great character in this book
-The ending--I can't wait to see what happens next!
What could've been better:
-I really, really didn't like Jezebel--I mean, there was already a horrible mean girl in the story with Bianca
-Most of Indie's high school friends
-There were a lot of pacing issues--it just seemed like it really took a long time for the ball to get rolling
I loved Hexed--an amazing, hilarious novel that will have you coming back for more! Highly recommended to fantasy fans! Next on deck: Fade by A.P. Kensey!
