The sequel to HEXED. Indie has spent the last few weeks frantically searching for Paige. She's tried every spell imaginable, but witchcraft has gotten her nowhere, and she's going crazy with guilt. Despite what her warlock boyfriend, Bishop, tells her, Indie knows it's her fault her best friend was kidnapped by the Priory. And with the Priory destroyed, finding Paige feels more hopeless than ever—especially when Indie discovers that Paige isn't even on Earth. She's trapped in Los Demonios, an alternate dimension of Los Angeles filled with evil paranormals. No one who has gone there has ever come out.Fueled by terror and loyalty, Indie is desperate to find a way into the underworld prison. She'll worry about getting out later. But facing the dark world's most dangerous witches and warlocks on her own means keeping her plan hush-hush—and forging alliances with some sketchy people, including a seriously sexy sorcerer. Sometimes a witch must keep secrets from the people she cares about most. And sometimes she isn't the only one with secrets. . . . Praise for HEXED “Wicked fun!” —Amy Plum, author of the Die for Me series “A perfect mix of action, romance, and humor—Hexed kept me riveted until the very last page!” —Amy Tintera, author of Reboot“Fast-paced, with sizzling tension!” —Victoria Scott, author of Fire & Flood
I was a big fan of Hexed. I absolutely loved the book and wanted desperately to read the sequel even as I was still in the middle of reading the first. Hexed was one of those books that I just knew I was going to love, and so Charmed was already a winner for me. I couldn’t wait to see what was next for Indie and Bishop (my all-time favorite love interest). And I am happy to say that I wasn’t disappointed.
While Hexed is my favorite of the two books, Charmed was the growth and the maturity that was needed for several different characters, including, and most obviously, Indigo and Bishop. Indigo’s growth was evident compared to where she was in Hexed. She’s one of my favorite female characters because of her strength and her overall attitude about doing things herself without unnecessarily relying on a love interest when she doesn’t have to.
Bishop is adorable, flirtatious, funny, and doesn’t try to demean or control Indigo, like boys from other some YA books often times do. Sure, he gets pissed with some of her choices, but he at least understands why she does the things that she has to do. Bishop and Indigo are the perfect pair and I ship them to the grave.
There were several secrets revealed in Charmed that has Indigo questioning everything she had ever known, including a certain secret about her own mother. The more I think about it and the actions Indigo had to take while recusing her friend Paige, the sadder it becomes. Despite that, the story had a beautiful ending.
All I want now is another Michelle Krys book set in this universe because there is a lot more to be seen from Indigo.
