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?Hexed was a nice and refreshing read for me. There were a lot of things going on within it, but it always kept my attention and I breezed through it with ease. I don't read a lot of witch books, but I do tend to enjoy them and Hexed was no exception. I thought the concept was fun and I ended up liking all the characters. Hexed had a lightweight feel to it like when I'm reading a contemporary novel. It had the sorry best friend and ex boyfriend and all that drama that goes along with it, but all the same it was filled with that paranormal aspect that I can't help but love.
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.
Indigo is the main character and I ended up really liking her. She was kind of your typical teenager. She's a cheerleader and she her boyfriend was the most popular guy in school. I liked Indigo because her character was very realistic. She acted just like a teenager and I liked that. But then things started to happen to her and her life changed drastically. All her life her mom has had this old bible that was passed down through the family and all of a sudden it gets stolen. Things get crazy after that and soon Indigo finds out she's a witch. Along the way she meets Bishop and by the end of the book I really liked his character. Bishop was fun and brought a lot of humor, but when we were first introduced to him I was skeptically. He kind a sorta was a stalker, but then things started to get revealed and it made sense. I also liked Indigo's friend Paige. She added nice element to the book and I'm glad we got to know her a bit.
Hexed did have some romance and I have to say that I enjoyed it :) I can't wait to see where things pick up with that in the next book. Also, the book ended on that thing that we dread, a cliffhanger. But still I'm excited to see what the sequel brings. Hexed had so many different elements going through it. This book wasn't completely light though. There were some dark times in this book for the characters so keep that in mind. I would definitely recommend this book if it's a genre that you like :)
