Review: Spellbound (HexHall #3) by Rachel Hawkins


Spell Bound (Hex Hall, #3)

Title: Spellbound
(Hex Hall #3)
Author: Rachel Hawkins

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
?

Review:
I am officially glad I read this series. From the first to the last, it got exceedingly better.
In this book, you follow Sophie and the gang (Jenna, Archer, Cal) as they find out even MORE stuff they didn’t already know. They are now working with the Branniks, who really aren’t as evil as they were led to believe. (Though I don’t really agree with how they raise their children)
The whole mission in this one is to stop the evil Casnoffs. But now that Sophie’s magic is sealed, and her dad’s power was stripped in the removal, they don’t have much to work with.
Then, unexpectedly, all of the children who were already sentenced to Hex Hall were magically dragged back, including Jenna, Archer and even Sophie. They are held on lockdown there, while the Casnoffs decide to train the children and turn them all into Demons. (Holy Crap right?)
Anyways, I enjoyed the story. I didn’t like one small part in the end (but to make the story good, someone always has to die, right?) However, I did like the way it ultimately ended up.
I felt like I could see how the characters grew, and made hard decisions that really changed who they were.
Overall, this was a great book, and a fantastic end to a good series.
Rating: 5 Stars
