Book #109: Spell Bound by Rachel Hawkins

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?

Where Demonglass ended, Soul Bound begins. In the last book, we learn more about Sophie’s father’s side of the family and meet the big baddie. In this book, we are given Sophie’s mother’s side and a whole lot more family dysfunction.

The snark of Sophie is still there and probably a superpower on its own. I find a kinship in Sophie with her humor in the face of danger. I definitely laugh and make jokes in the middle of terrible situations. I’m also a nervous talker, something Sophie seems to have as well.

This book has more action than the first and second. It introduces more myth and the history of some of the characters. We also get to meet the Brannicks (a family I actually like).

In all, the book was a fun read. It was equally as quick and did give a satisfying end to the trilogy. My only downside about it was that I wanted more. I have had a taste of Hawkins and I’m entertained enough that I definitely want to read more of her work.
