Book Review: Spell Bound by Rachel Hawkins

"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?" Goodreads summary. 

Spell Bound was a worthy end of the Hex Hall trilogy (I actually shed a couple of tears at the end there, if you have read the book I guess you know why). This book, along with the two first, are full of wit and banter which I love about this series and I'm sad that I couldn't just dive into another one after I finsihed it. There seemed to be a lot of jumping in time in this book which made certain scenes feel a little bit cut short, but at the same time I'm pleased that Rachel did it this way since the story and the plot didn't suffer any from it. I would reccomend this trilogy to all YA lovers who have a thing for sassy heroines with paranormal powers.

One of my favorite quotes from the book: 
"I’m so happy to see you that I wouldn’t care if you’re secretly a ninja sent from the future to destroy kittens and rainbows." 
— Rachel Hawkins (Spell Bound (Hex Hall, #3))
