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

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

SUMMARY FIRST: 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…

WHAT I THINK: It was a fun read. Not exactly one series that makes you an addict and a fan of it, but it’s fun enough to make you want to finish it, and enjoy your reading. IN the sequel of Firespell, Lily continues her adventure as an Adept and student of St. Sophia in Chicago, with her new BFF Scout. In this book, it was just like the previous one. There’s an equal amount of mystery, solving, being “detective”, cool whatever gifts, gadgets and stuff, and action too. However, I think I know what made it none that so special–the problem in the story was solved so easily, I mean it was long before they put an end to the problem, but in the end, it was just too easy. okay, there were a couple of hindrances and problems here and there, but it was solved easily, no heart-stopping moments even for 5 seconds, where the readers are supposed to wonder how the main char are going to step out of that situation..Anyway! it was still a good read. I just hate the parts where Scout and Lily exchanged a lot of words with each other knowing the limited time,and not yet starting the thing Scout was about to do to end the whatever. Also, at the last chapter, just when you thought the author was about to end the paragraph,and the words seemed conclusive enough, surprise, surprise! another paragraph. I don’t know if I wanna laugh or be frustrated. Anyway, in the end of it all, I was right, Sebastian was there! lol. something’s brewing!!!
Lastly, my thought about this series was there was no, I don’t know, real interaction with the main villain to bring him down slowly. I’m quite afraid this will turn out to be a lot of books in a series. I just hope not! Last, last! I still think her parents are Adepts or something. and with the last book, or next books, they’ll show up,! hah. predictions. predictions. lol.
