Hexed by Michelle Krys was such a fun and great book to read. I was reminiscent of Rachel Hawkin’s Hex Hall series, but Hexed had its own spin on witches and magic. Hexed one of those fun, paranormal books I read this year and I recommend it a lot.
In Hexed, we meet Indigo Blackwood and she always lived not so normal life. Her mom runs a “magic shop” and is so focused on guarding a special family Bible. When Indie, sees a man die right in front of her eyes, her whole life turns around. The action kicks up and we see the novel come into a full circle. Her mother disappears; she meets a duo of men with dangerous men, and Bishop. I love how Michelle Krys lightened up the YA, paranormal genre. We all need that light, fun book with some paranormal aspect and Hexed is just that. I love the character’s names and Indie was fun. But at times she was so clueless; I wanted to roll my eyes over that. Like come one, use logic and your head Indie to find the clue out.
While Hexed had some great things, it suffered a lot from its light and fluffiness’ that bogged down the book. I just felt like the book was a big cheat. Indie does all these things and in the end it just comes down to a disappointing ending. What was up that? Are you serious? And the plot was a mess. I thought Indie, Pagie, and Bishop kept going in circles and didn’t have any depth to the story. Beyond the surface, I noticed a lot more things that weren’t good. It was good, not disappointing, but maybe not as memorable.
Give Hexed a try if you are in need of a light and fun YA paranormal read! Look out for this one coming in June!
