Spell Bound


Author: Rachel Hawkins
Pages: 327
Publisher: Hyperion
Format: Hardcover
My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Summary (from Goodreads): Hailed as “impossible to put down,” the Hex Hall series has both critics and teens cheering. With a winning combination of romance, action, magic and humor, this third volume will leave readers enchanted. Just as Sophie Mercer has come to accept her extraordinary magical powers as a demon, the Prodigium Council strips them away. Now Sophie is defenseless, alone, and at the mercy of her sworn enemies—the Brannicks, a family of warrior women who hunt down the Prodigium. Or at least that’s what Sophie thinks, until she makes a surprising discovery. The Brannicks know an epic war is coming, and they believe Sophie is the only one powerful enough to stop the world from ending. But without her magic, Sophie isn’t as confident. Sophie’s bound for one hell of a ride—can she get her powers back before it’s too late? 
                                                                                                           



My Summary
: After nearly dying in the fire that burned down her father's home, Sophie wakes up in the middle of an eerie forest. Having followed Cal's direction, she went to find the Brannicks - a group of supernatural hunters that seem to have custody of Sophie's very-human mother. But if she was expecting a vicious horde of amazon warriors, she was sadly mistaken - the Brannicks are nothing but two teenage girls and their mother.

They also happen to be her relatives.

Now, without powers or anything to protect her, Sophie must find a way to stop the army of demons the Casnoff sisters seem intent on raising and get her powers back. But can she destroy the demon army when they happen to be in possession of the souls of her classmates and friends?

My Thoughts: I honestly could not put this book down until I was finished. After the end of Demonglass I couldn't wait to find out what happened to all my favourite characters. I'm a little glad everything went down at Hex Hall - after all, that is where it all began.

It's extremely difficult to talk about this one without giving too much away, but I will say this: if you loved the first two books in the series, you'll no doubt enjoy this final installment. There were enough heart-wrenching moments and laughs that just about anyone could enjoy it, no matter your genre preference.

Final Thoughts: I recommend Spell Bound and the entire Hex Hall trilogy to anyone who enjoys paranormal YA, romance, as well as anyone who's looking for something fun in their summer reading.
