Spellbound by Rachel Hawkins

For Review: Simon & Schuster
Published: 29 March 2012

From Goodreads: 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?

I'm always a bit apprehensive when I'm reading the last book in a series - just in case I don't like how it ends but I devoured this one! I was really excited to catch up with Sophie (and Archer!)

Everything I loved about the first two books is present in this one. Sophie is as sassy and sarcastic as ever. Archer is still wickedly hot and Jenna is perfect as Sophie's best friend. And, of course Call is still his sweet and caring self. We also get to meet a whole host of new characters and I loved them all!

The story is fast paced and totally addictive. I enjoyed every minute! I'm sad the series has ended but I'm glad Rachel Hawkins ended it on a high! While I would have liked a different outcome for one of the characters (you will know what I mean when you read it) I still loved the end and the sacrifice made. Contradictory I know - but I think it worked really well.

I'm super excited for whatever Rachel Hawkins gives us next!
