I appreciated that Indigo never really mastered her emotions. What teenage girl can? Maybe for ten minutes. This also helped the story ring true. And allowed for more conflict and tension because readers realized she would run straight into the arms of trouble unprepared.
The minor characters of Paige and Bishop were well-drawn, as well. Of course, we only get to see them from Indigo’s perspective, and she isn’t an unbiased observer.
Paige is the unpopular next door neighbor who comes through as a true friend (more cliche). Bishop is an orphan warlock (male counterpart of witch in this series whereas Potter had wizards) with plenty of secrets of his own.
It was difficult to put this book down. I ended up reading it on three consecutive evenings. By the last 100 pages, there was no chance I would stop reading until I finished.
I don’t spoil stories with my reviews. Suffice it to say there are several wrenching twists that are unexpected. However, they aren’t unbelievable or unsupported.
There are more bad guys in this story than good. We get the impression we’re supposed to side with the witches, but their ruling body, The Family, doesn’t win my adoration. If you prefer an obvious black and white in your good and evil battles, this book won’t give you that.
As in life, plans never go as planned. Indigo loses more than she gains. The ending is happy - sort of.
My least favorite thing about the book was the fact that the resolution included the set-up for the next book in the series. It was done well, not coming off as a cliffhanger. If you don’t want to bite, just don’t read the Epilogue.
I usually like paranormal books but found this quite hard to read. Reading this book made me so frustrated, the characters were annoying and to me seemed really immature. I couldn't even get half way through the book because of how much the characters annoyed me. Even writing this review is getting me worked up because I'm trying to think of exactly why I didn't like it.
The romance in it was terrible, really there was no romance worth noting, I found it lacking and childish, there was no chemistry what so ever between the characters
The fake friends and then the neighbor. All characters were terrible. The neighbor was meant to be the winning friend but again I found that character completely annoying
I wish I could get my money back. I don't know what the people are thinking writing raving reviews about the book, either they are getting paid to do so or just have bad taste in books. Save your time and money it is not worth it!!
It bothers Indie but she manages to put it out of her mind until they are called to the principals office the next day. 2 strangers claiming to be the police are there. Indie finds them off but there's nothing she can do other than answer their questions. When the principal leaves the room the guys attitude immediately changes. For some reason Paige is frozen and the men grill Indie about a certain book, her mums bible. Why are they so interested in that old thing? Little does Indie know that the book is precious and her life is about to change from that second on!
Well this was a pleasant surprise! I loved Hexed. Such a fun yet compelling read.
Now Indie isn't the normal heroine but I loved her. She was very witty and sassy! She is the typical beautiful high school cheerleader. She has her circle of friends and sticks with them. She is more worried about her reputation than anything else and thinks that being seen with a nerd is social suicide. Paige is said nerd and has been trying to be friends with Indie for ever since they live next door but Indie hates to be seen with her. So ya, Indie is pretty shallow but she is also smart, spunky and brave. We see her character develop from being who she was to someone special. She becomes a worthy heroine!
Then there's Bishop. At the start he just seems weird, very stalkery but I still loved him. He was strong, brave, handsome and very very funny!! Despite his outward appearance you just know there's something underneath and throughout the book we do see that side of him. His chemistry with Indie was unmistakable as well. Even though she tries to hate him, she cant. He gets under her skin and I loved seeing their interactions!! I also loved the fact that there wasn't any insta love between Bishop and Indie. She cant stand him at first but sees the good side of him after a while
The secondary characters were amazingly written as well. Paige is the kind of friend everyone should have. Deeply loyal, brave and smart. Even though Indie didnt treat her the best she still manages to be there for her when needed. Then there's Indies mom. She owns a witchy store and always tells Indie that the bible is special. She is kinda kooky but she loves Indie fiercely.
Overall I loved Hexed. A fun yet action packed Witch book. At times laugh out loud funny and at others bawl your eyes out sad! As for the ending!! WHY!!!! I need book 2 like yesterday ;) A fun, fast paced read that will stay with you even when you turn the last page! Michelle Krys is definitely one to watch and I look forward to more from her.
Within the first few pages I knew I was going to love Michelle Krys writing style. Her writing is fun, her characters are so realistic you feel like you know them and it reads more like an actual story that you take place in rather than a story you are reading.
Immediately I liked Indigo. She got on my nerves several times, because she could have an annoying attitude, but altogether I loved her snark and sarcastic nature. Bishop is sexy. That’s all I really have to say… Another bad boy that immediately had me in his clutches! As I mentioned above the character building was fantastic, despite the paranormal element, I felt these characters were realistic and very relatable. Especially the teenagers!
The plot itself was unique and well done. I loved that Indigo’s mom owned Black Cat, a “magic” store… It really reminded me of a shop from at home, coincidentally also a favorite ;)
As a debut novel, Michelle Krys blew this one out of the park. It’s by far one of my favorite debuts I’ve read this year and I will be picking up her future books without a doubt. I definitely recommend Hexed to anyone… Although it’s paranormal, Michelle’s fun writing style and great plot lines will suck you in from page one!
