Spell Bound (Hex Hall #3)

SpellboundTitle: Spell Bound (Hex Hall #3)
Author: Rachel Hawkins
Rating: 4/5
Summary: 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 Thoughts: For this review, I'm going to make a list of likes and dislikes:
  • I love Sophie's wit! Her personality is what got me hooked onto the series. 
  • The introduction of the Brannicks in person
  • Spell Bound = drama=what I love=JOY :)
  •  I thought the first two books were fantastic, this one was a little slow for me. Nothing new happened in the sense that it was obvious Sophie was going to win. I was just waiting for it to happen and at times I was thinking, let's just get this over with already. Book two was so dangerous and mysterious and this one was just bleh!
  • I loved how the book wrapped up nicely, but, I am COMPLETELY SHOCKED at Cal's ending. I'm literally holding my self back from ruining the ending. IT IS SO SHOCKING. 
All in all, Spellbound is still a must-read, especially after the HUGE cliffhanger at the end of Demonglass.
