Book Review: Hexed by Michelle Krys

It's Bring it On meets The Craft in this spellbinding witchy series debut.

A stolen book. A deadly plan. A destiny discovered. 

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 when a frustratingly sexy stranger named Bishop enters Indie's world, she learns that 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 is about to uncover the many dark truths about her life—and a future unlike any she ever imagined on top of the cheer pyramid.

This book finally got me out of my reading slump! I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I couldn’t put it down.

Indigo (Indie) Blackwood doesn’t realize she’s a witch, until strange things begin to happen. Her mom owns an occult shop and does her best to keep a family bible hidden at all times. Indie always thought the book was useless—just something her grandma gave to her mom—but when two guys nearly kill her mom for it, Indie’s view of the family heirloom takes a different turn.

Now, she has to recover the book or risk unleashing death on everyone—on top of being stalked by a seriously-hot warlock. Will she be able to steal the bible right out of the sorcerers’ hands, or is the fate of the world doomed?

I really enjoyed this story. It kept me guessing what would happen next, and there was never a dull moment. I liked the relationship between Indie and Bishop. They definitely had some chemistry going on. Indie, for the most part, was a strong lead, but in the beginning, I just didn’t connect with her. She was too snobbish. Thankfully, she got better as the story progressed.

Overall, if you enjoy reading books with witches, magic, and a hint of romance, then I’d recommend picking this up.
