If high school is all about social status, Indigo Blackwood has it made. Sure, her quirky mom owns an occult shop, and a nerd just won’t stop trying to be her friend, but Indie is a popular cheerleader with a football-star boyfriend and a social circle powerful enough to ruin everyone at school. Who wouldn’t want to be her?
Then a guy dies right before her eyes. And the dusty old family Bible her mom is freakishly possessive of is stolen. But it’s when a frustratingly sexy stranger named Bishop enters Indie’s world that she learns her destiny involves a lot more than pom-poms and parties. If she doesn’t get the Bible back, every witch on the planet will die. And that’s seriously bad news for Indie, because according to Bishop, she’s a witch too.
Suddenly forced into a centuries-old war between witches and sorcerers, Indie’s about to uncover the many dark truths about her life—and a future unlike any she ever imagined on top of the cheer pyramid.
Sometimes a witch must keep secrets from the people she cares about most. And sometimes she isn't the only one with secrets....
HEXED is the first book in the Witch Hunter’s duology. Indigo Blackwood has lived her life as a normal teenage girl, only having to worry about high school drama and her mom, who has The Black Cat, a witch store. Everything changes for Indie one night when she experiences a death of a stranger and the next day is being interrogated by sorcerers, who are the witches enemies. Want to know more? Read the book!
I expected more witch stuff in this book but that’s okay! The story stayed intense and intriguing until the end. There was never a dull moment. Either Indie was running for her life from sorcerers, dealing with “friend’s” drama or learning how to channel her witch energy with the help of Bishop, a warlock who kept following Indie to check up on her and soon became a friend.
This story was so sad! Not all of it (has to do with Indie’s family), but there were parts where I just wanted to cry because it was so sad and it is very understandable if you have read the book. Indie is a very strong girl for having gone through what she did. I would have probably stayed in bed until I had gray hair. Experiencing what she did just by reading it, had me with an ache-filled chest. Of course, Bishop was always there to help cheer Indie and distract her from what was going on, even if he was acting like a jerk.
I always like male characters that are jerks and Bishop is no different. He isn’t really a jerk, but has his moments. He is very sweet when he wants to be. He wears a leather jacket which makes him even hotter! When Indie saw the tattoo he has on his neck, my jaw dropped when she mentioned what it was. I hope my boyfriend never does that or I will throw a fit, I swear.
I really wanted more witch craft and that’s saying a lot because I’m not into witch stuff but this book was so good that had me wanting more! Thanks to this book, I will now be reading more witch books. I need CHARMED in my hands. I need that baby. I have to wait until next year (it sucks) to read what’s going to happen next. It leaves a cliff hanger! Authors are conspiring against the reader, wanting to crush our feels. The epilogue confused me but its because its in another character’s point of view; watch out for that so you don’t get confused like I did.
All in all, AWESOME story! Go check it out and support Michelle so she keeps writing more books! We need more!
