HEXBOUND (A novel of the Dark Elite #2)
January 4th, 2011
Lily Parker is new to St. Sophia’s School for Girls, but she’s already learned that magic can be your best friend…or your worst enemy.
They say absolute power corrupts absolutely. Turns out, even a little magic can turn you to the dark side. That’s why Lily has to learn how to control her newly discovered paranormal abilities, on top of avoiding the snobs who think they run her school, nursing a crush on a cute sophomore with a big, werewolf-y secret, and fighting the good fight with her best friend Scout as they take on Chicago’s nastiest nightlife—including the tainted magic users known as Reapers.
Then Lily’s invited to a private meeting with Sebastian. He’s hot, powerful, and offering to help her harness the magic flowing in her veins in a way no one else can. He’s also a Reaper. Lily can’t hide her suspicions. But she’ll soon find out that the line between good and evil isn’t always clear…
I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Firespell, so I'm looking forward to book 2. Chloe Neill is one of my favorite authors, her Chicagoland Vampires series is absolutely fantastic (I drool for Ethan). She's wonderfully sarcastic, something that always appeals to me, and I consistently devour her books in one sitting. I love the cover as well, the colors are gorgeous and the type treatment is perfection.
