Review: Hexbound by Chloe Neill

Hexbound (Dark Elite, #2)
Hexbound by Chloe Neill

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. 

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…

*My Review*

   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.


  1. I have Firespell on my wishlist. I need to read it soon since Hexbound sounds so good!

  2. Hi Brandi, this is an interesting and beautiful review. And now another series I will have to check out!

    Have a great weekend!

    The Wytch's Mirror

  3. Sounds good. Obviously I'm missing out because I have yet to read book one. I love characters that make you laugh easy.

    Thanks for the review. I will have to check out the books soon.

  4. When I "found" the characters Lily and Scout in "Firespell" it was instantaneous love for the author's creation! Am really looking forward to reading "Hexbound" to see for my own self the "shades of gray" that you talk about Brandi.. Also really curious to see how things are going now that Lily has sort of kind of thrown in with the "Reapers" by association with Sebastian...

    jackie >_<

  5. Ooh interesting! I have this on my TBR pile. Hope to read it soon. But Shadowfever comes out Tuesday and that's what I'm tackling first! Plan on reading this one next though!

  6. Awesome, I'm going to have to check out this series, also thanks for the comment and follow, have a happy weekend!!

  7. Great review! I'm looking forward to reading this one. I've ordered it online and I still haven't gotten it yet but hopefully it will come next week.

  8. I really should read the first installment of the series, Firespell, sooner. Lily and Scout's relationship sounds fun. :')

  9. It's her second book in the Chicagoland Vampires Novel

  10. Lily and Scout really are fun characters, and I am really interested to see more with what is going on with Seb.
