April's review of 'Spell Bound' by Rachel Hawkins

Spell Bound (Hex Hall #3) by Rachel Hawkins 
Publication Date: March 13, 2012
Publisher: Hyperion Books
Number of Pages: 336
Format: Hardback
Buy: Amazon | Barnes and Noble
Description:  Hailed as “impossible to put down,” the Hex Hall series has both critics and teens cheering. With a winning combination of romance, action, magic and humor, this third volume will leave readers enchanted.

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?
 The final installment in the series pick up right where Demonglass had left off. All Sophie wanted to do was to find her mom. Cal had told her that she's with the Brannicks, which confuses Sophie. The Brannicks is an Irish family of women who hunt the supernatural. Putting her faith in Cal, she finds herself in the middle of the Brannicks compound. And the first big twist of the book is thrown at us, Sophie's mom is a Brannick and has been on the run from them all these years. 

Cal and Sophie's dad eventually find the way to the compound. And they set out for their long journey. And Archer isn't too far behind. I wouldn't say there's really a love triangle with Cal, Sophie, and Archer. Her heart clearly belonged to Archer. I just couldn't really hardcore ship Sophie and Archer. In this book everything comes to a full circle. There was a big sacrifice that just made me want to cry my eyes out. But other than that I was very satisfied with the ending.   

Rating: 4/5
