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.
I've been looking for a new paranormal lately, and I've always had a thing for witchy endeavors. Hexed sounds like it might just fit the bill. Despite the fact that I'm a little concerned about this one having the opportunity to fall into the petty and predictable trap, I do like that the main character seems to defy the norm for paranormal protagonists. I like that. I also love the cover font because, well, I choose books by their covers, obvs. What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?
