Spell Bound by Rachel Hawkins Review
Title: Spell Bound
Author: Rachel Hawkins
Published: March 13th 2012
Synopsis 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 was smiling when I finished reading this book. Hex Hall was a great series to read. Spell Bound provided closure to all the questions I had in the previous books. Sophie evolve into a mature character but still with a little bit of her sarcastic remarks left. Also more back story of her mother was reveal in this book and more information about her love interest Archer Cross too. The identities of the Bannicks were reveal. They were not as Amazonian warrior like I thought they would be.
The love triangle in this story was nicely balance and not overwhelming. Sophie was wavering between Archer and Cal but she did decide on who she wanted to be with at the end..>o<.. Although I like the final battle with the baddies but it was kind of quick. It'd be awesome if it was extended. Sophie had to make a surprising decision at the end that can change her life too. Overall, Spell Bound was entertaining and provide a good ending to the series. I'll definitely check out other works by Rachel Hawkins.
