The Sisters of Witchdown, #1

Hexed is pretty cool. It is the first book based on the comic of the same name. I have to say that this Hexed book was much better than the other story with the same name that I read last year. Where that one had a lot of things in the plot that just didn't make sense this one was great. It explained things when needed to and didn’t leave you hanging too badly.

Although this one does have a cliffhanger it’s not one that will make you scream for book two.

The characters in this one were great. I really would love a prequel about Lucifer. She was a great kick butt character and I really want to know more about her and her hex.

I could really relate to Lucifer as I’ve been pagan for over 20 years. When people had ghost issues I was the one they turned to. So it was nice to have a story with an account of something like that. It felt very real.

The story lost me a little around the middle. It got a little redundant and the ending was a little predicable, but it was still worth the read. It was a great story with a wonderful blend of the real world and the paranormal. It reminded me of a combo of Mirrors and Insidious (movies) and Sisters of Blood and Spirit by Kady Cross. This book and SoBaS are very similar in their own ways and both are wonderful!

There is no real big cliffhanger, nor a love triangle

Book Blurb for Hexed


Luci Jenifer Inacio das Neves, Lucifer for short, isn't your typical teenaged girl.  She's a thief who survives by stealing bad things from bad people in the magical and mystical underworld hidden beneath our own.  So when a policeman's daughter, Gina, is kidnapped by a force he can't explain, Lucifer is the only one who has a chance at getting his daughter back.  

With the unsolicited help of Gina's friends, including Gina's boyfriend David, Lucifer's investigation leads to the unfortunate truth of the kidnapping.  Gina was taken to an otherworldly dimension by a creature of unspeakable evil: one of the Seven Sisters of Witchdown.  Against all odds, Lucifer must use every magical tool hidden in her trick bag to steal her way into the Shade and bring Gina back before the Sister sacrifices her for her own dark ends.  But the closer Lucifer gets to Gina, the closer she gets to David.  And David to her.  Lucifer must risk her life by confronting demons, witches, and the cruel demigoddess controlling her destiny - all to save the one girl who stands in the way of Lucifer finally finding love.
