The first novel in the spellbindingly sexy two-book series about a teenage witch in L.A. by Michelle Krys, author of DEAD GIRLS SOCIETY! Victoria Scott, author of Fire & Flood raves that HEXED is "Fast-paced with sizzling tension!" and Amy Plum, author of the Die For Me series, calls it "Wicked fun!"
Indie Blackwood is a popular cheerleader with a football-star boyfriend. On the surface, her life looks perfect. But when a guy dies right before her eyes and an ancient family Bible is stolen, Indie's world spirals into darkness. Turns out, Indie has a destiny. And it involves much more than pom-poms and parties.
If she doesn't get the Bible back, every witch on the planet will die. And that's seriously bad news for Indie, because according to Bishop, the hot warlock who has an uncanny knowledge of everything that matters, she's a witch too.
Indie is about to uncover the many dark truths about her life--and a future unlike any she ever imagined on top of the cheer pyramid. Want more HEXED? Don't miss the next HEXED book, CHARMED. ***

About Michelle Krys

MICHELLE KRYS is the author of Hexed and Charmed and the highly anticipated Dead Girls Society, coming November 2016. When she's not writing books for teens, Michelle moonlights as a NICU nurse. Michelle is probably not a witch, though she did belong to a witchcraft club in the fifth grade and "levitated" people in her bedroom, so that may be up for debate. She lives in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, with her family. michellekrys.com

The first thing I noticed about this book was the tag line, “Something witchy this way comes.” And that is from the Harry Potter song they had promoting one of the movies so naturally it attracted me to the book. Oh did I mention that cover also creeped me out so much? The model's expression never sat right with me. We meet Indigo and I just love that she has a unique name already. She starts off as this cliche shallow cheerleader, but she does go through a character ARC and changes her demeanor. I don't blame Indigo at all since that was one crazy plot twist that didn't need to happen, but I thought it was a turning point which makes her change. Kind of like a domino effect. I liked the world that was brought up and the witch war that was happening. I wanted more from the world and more explanations about how and why it started, but I'm guessing more will be revealed since it ended on a cliffhanger. I didn't particularly like any of the characters (except Paige) and wasn't swooning over Bishop, because I thought their relationship was too fast. I also found Paige to be the one voice of reason in the entire book and I want her to be more of a focus as well. As for the plot, I thought it was wonderful and the twists and turns were great. I really am curious to know more about why they're at war in the first place. Overall, if you're looking for a new witch themed book, make sure to check this one out. It combines snarky cheerleaders with magic!show more
by Giselle SM
Hexed is such a fun paranormal book that I absolutely devoured! Indigo is a strong character with a fantastic sense of humour, making her a great protagonist to read about. Hexed is a great debut from Michelle Krys, which is a satisfying story in and of itself while still leaving enough details to be handled in the sequel (Hexed is the first in a duology). Reasons to Read: 1. An authentic heroine: Indigo (a.k.a. Indie) is not the typical heroine you read about in YA books, which is precisely why I liked her so much. She has a strong personality, and a very sarcastic sense of humour so she's fairly snarky as well. She's snobby and extremely self-centred at first, too, so she isn't the type of character I'm immediately drawn towards. But this is exactly why reading Hexed was so refreshing for me, because Indie is not a perfect character. She has flaws, and the character development and changes she goes through during the book are striking as a result of this. She may be the type of character who takes a little bit longer to grow on you but she gets there, trust me! (I love characters like this, for example I'm reminded of Lady Mary in Downton Abbey. I also like the Buffy the Vampire Slayer comparison with Hexed, because there definitely is a Buffy/Cordelia vibe to Indie.) 2. Gradual romance: I appreciate a good love story as much as the next person, but I'm not a fan of insta!-love so the romance in Hexed worked perfectly for me. It's develops over time, although there seems to be an attraction element fairly early on which is nice since it adds just a bit of tension to keep the story completely absorbing. I also liked that it didn't feel super cheesy to me, and it didn't overpower the rest of the plot but instead the romance enhanced it. Bishop is a really great character, who's fun and hilarious along with being straightforward with Indie and complex. He's precisely the type of guy you want to root for! 3. A thrilling plot: There is a lot of action and excitement that happens in Hexed, and it's pretty much non-stop from the start. While Indie is still trying to accept some significant revelations, she's forced to deal with problems (both big and small) and figure out a way to get through them. And for the most part? She's doing most of the work all on her own. She's tough and a fighter, but you can also see some of these changes taking their toll on her (as they would). There are secrets and twists galore, which kept me turning the pages as fast as I could. There were a couple points in the story when I felt that I could have benefited from a bit more world building, simply because the magic and conflict featured in Hexed were very interesting and I would love to read more about how this world works and how it came to be. But I also never felt like I didn't have enough information to understand what's going on, and I'm fairly certain that most of my questions will be answered in the sequel.
