If high school is all about social status, Indigo Blackwood has it made. Sure, her quirky mom owns an occult shop, and a nerd just won’t stop trying to be her friend, but Indie is a popular cheerleader with a football-star boyfriend and a social circle powerful enough to ruin everyone at school. Who wouldn’t want to be her?
Then a guy dies right before her eyes. And the dusty old family Bible her mom is freakishly possessive of is stolen. But it’s when a frustratingly sexy stranger named Bishop enters Indie’s world that she learns her destiny involves a lot more than pom-poms and parties. If she doesn’t get the Bible back, every witch on the planet will die. And that’s seriously bad news for Indie, because according to Bishop, she’s a witch too.
Suddenly forced into a centuries-old war between witches and sorcerers, Indie’s about to uncover the many dark truths about her life—and a future unlike any she ever imagined on top of the cheer pyramid.
I always like trying new authors, your never really sure what your going to get. I really enjoyed Hexed and will be getting the next one in the series.
Indigo thought she was just an ordinary teenager with a strange mother. Her mother always talked about witches but she never took her seriously about any of it. Her mother guards The Witch Hunters Bible and when it goes missing Indies life is turned upside down. She soon realizes that all that nonsense her mother use to talk about is real. Indie could be a witch and Bishop is there to help her develop her magic.
Indigo aka Indie is really just your average teenager. She is a cheerleader and dates a football player, but she is not all about being popular like others. She works at her mothers store and just wants to survive high school. Their is a little teenage angst but over all Indie is a decent character. She gets thrown into a situation and some really bad things happen to her so I give her kudos for pushing forward after the bad things happen.
Bishop is not really on my like list as I can’t stand his snarky remarks that he gives Indie all the time. For the life of me I can’t see why she even likes him, but I guess he grows on me a little, but not a favorite. Even Indie can’t stand his ability to not take anything dangerous seriously. I don’t know how many times I wanted to scream, “Would you just tell her what he wants to know!” Hopefully I will like him more in the second book.
I don’t read a lot of witch books so I am not well versed in them so I found Hexed to be interesting. There is a very sad part in the book that I thought drug on a little to long but then I know it wasn’t something that could just be forgotten. It just slowed down the pace of the book for me a little and I found my mind wondering.
Over all I enjoyed it and I think that if you are in to YA and witches then you might also enjoy it. If anyone else has read it I would love to hear from them and what they thought of it.
