Lily Parker is new to St. Sophia’s School for Girls, but she’s already learned that magic can be your best friend…or your worst enemy.Publishes: Jan 4th 2011
They say absolute power corrupts absolutely. Turns out, even a little magic can turn you to the dark side. That’s why Lily has to learn how to control her newly discovered paranormal abilities, on top of avoiding the snobs who think they run her school, nursing a crush on a cute sophomore with a big, werewolf-y secret, and fighting the good fight with her best friend Scout as they take on Chicago’s nastiest nightlife—including the tainted magic users known as Reapers.
Then Lily’s invited to a private meeting with Sebastian. He’s hot, powerful, and offering to help her harness the magic flowing in her veins in a way no one else can. He’s also a Reaper. Lily can’t hide her suspicions. But she’ll soon find out that the line between good and evil isn’t always clear…
2nd in the Dark Elite series, 1st Firespell
I enjoyed Hexbound, being thrown back into a unique world of magic, of good and evil. Because that line is so easy to pick out sometimes right? That is what Lily is learning about, where those shades of gray really turn into black and white. I think that is her biggest journey in this book.
Lily and Scout crack me up- I love their easy relationship, Scout's sarcasm, and their dynamic. Both are shown to have flaws, and strengths in this book.
Both Sebastian and Jason are back in this one, and I am not really sure about either of them. Sebastian makes me wonder what all is really going on beneath the surface and is the epitome of gray to me. Jason is mostly a great guy but is hiding things.
I will definitely keep reading the series, I want to find out more about Lily's mysterious parents, what is going on with Sebastian, the thing I can't say about Jason, and of course more of Scout.
I would love to hear what you think of my review and/or this book.
