ebook, 205 pages
Published March 13th 2012 by Hyperion (first published January 1st 2012)

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? (goodreads)


The finale book of Hex Hall series will let you find out (again) something we don't know. In the first and second book we find out about who Sophie and her father really are, the real Council, the Cassnoff family, and so on. In the last book we will know about who Sophie's mother really is and the real Archer Cross.

According to the second book, we have reference who the real villain is. So this villain tries to do dark ritual to some Hecate students. Some friends will be turned out demon like Sophie. But the newborn demons are never same with the exist demon. They will be uncontrollable and wild. As her magic is blocked, Sophie cannot help her friends. She has to find a way how to get back her power this time.

Spell Bound, of course, is different from Demonglass. It has less action than the second. So that's why some readers 'complain' with it. If you are kind of reader who loves action, you may be like them. Actually so am I, but this time I like the twist. Only one thing want to know is why Rachel Hawkins as the author doesn't write much about Cal and the Eye. I find less information about Cal, except the very basic information that you can get from Demonglass. And so is the Eye. The only way I get information about the Eye is from Archer Cross. Hawkins never let me "see" the Eye directly. Yeah, probably it is because of the POV. The novel uses Sophie's POV to tell what's happening to reader. As Sophie never meets the Eye directly except Archer, so readers will never have a chance to "see" the Eye directly.

Well, so let me give 3,5 stars again for this book. If you are really like fantasy and romance or sort of pararom, you will like this book. I bet it.
