"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 one night Lily and her friends are attacked by creatures like nothing they've ever seen before. And in the aftermath, she realizes she'll have to use her growing powers sooner then she thought - because she's smack in the middle of a paranormal turf war that could tear Chicago apart ..."
Lily and Scout are going to need all their skills to stay alive in this book. They are battling not only the Reapers but a new enemy. Some sort of creature that looks like a rather large rat with very big fangs. Scout will learn new spells, and Lily will learn new ways to control her Firespell.
This is the second book in Chloe Neill's Dark Elite series and I'm enjoying it immensely. Forget the YA tag the publishers put on it. It's a book for anyone who likes Magic, Powers, Werewolves and other things that go bump in the night.
This is definitely a FIVE STAR READ.

Review from Blkosiner's Book Blog
I enjoyed Hexbound, being thrown back into a unique world of magic, of good and evil. Because that line is so easy to pick out sometimes right? That is what Lily is learning about, where those shades of gray really turn into black and white. I think that is her biggest journey in this book.
Lily and Scout crack me up- I love their easy relationship, Scout's sarcasm, and their dynamic. Both are shown to have flaws, and strengths in this book.
But I would say that it falls somewhere in the second book syndrome. Sure, there were things to move the plot along, but I never felt like there was a set climax, or really much of a resolution. I want MORE.
Both Sebastian and Jason are back in this one, and I am not really sure about either of them. Sebastian makes me wonder what all is really going on beneath the surface and is the epitome of gray to me. Jason is mostly a great guy but is hiding things.
I will definitely keep reading the series, I want to find out more about Lily's mysterious parents, what is going on with Sebastian, the thing I can't say about Jason, and of course more of Scout. by Brandi Kosiner
