Indigo Blackwood has followed her best friend to popularity in high school.
She’s a cheerleader and dating one of the best looking guys in school.
This is against all odds since she could instead easily be considered the daughter of that weird woman who runs an occult shop. Since that would be accurate.
But then strange things start to happen. A guy drops dead in front of her. Her mother’s ancient “bible” of witchcraft goes missing and she gets some odd, offbeat visitors at school.
Not long after that Indie’s life begins to change forever…
Hexed surprised me.
This is a fast-paced book with humor and intriguing paranormal suspense. I went back and forth between thinking Indie was pretty unrealistic and not loving her to finally coming around a bit later… In fact, I had a hard time with ALL of the characters for a while but did find myself begin to thaw.
Hexed is fun, yet surprisingly violent, with dark twists that take the book places I did not expect. There’s romance – though that was part of my issue with the characters. Again, it got better – but for me Hexed strength is its plot versus its characters. At least for now.
I can see how Hexed could make a good start to an entertaining witchy series.
By the cliffhanger ending I can say I was prepared to read more!
