Review: Spell Bound by Rachel Hawkins

Spell Bound (Hex Hall, #3)

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?

It was really interesting seeing Sophie without her powers and once again discovering secrets from her parents. I don’t like the fact her mother is always hiding things that could easily be the reason for Sophie’s death and the world is in a brick of doom, so nobody could be trusted.

It was different discovering these amazon ladies. But I actually liked the Brannicks because their family had a reason and a very strange sense of right and wrong. It’s fun to meet the girls and see the dual perspective of the reasons.

After the way Demonglass ended really dark and Sophie had no idea who could be alive. But I liked the idea of putting them all together to discover one way of killing the demons and also thinking about saving the world by just reversing the spell.

The school is worst them ever and it’s actually crystal clear to everyone who the bad guys are and their strange and absurd reasons for creating the demons in the first place. I liked the series better in the begin and the idea of Sophie being a bad demon was not my favorite part.
