106 – Spell Bound (Hex Hall #3) by Rachel Hawkins

So, I finished this book last evening.  I wish I could say I was happy with it and how the series ended.  Anyway, here’s the Goodreads summary.

“Hailed as “impossible to put down,” the Hex Hall series has both critics and teens cheering. With a winning combination of romance, action, magic and humor, this third volume will leave readers enchanted.

Just as Sophie Mercer has come to accept her extraordinary magical powers as a demon, the Prodigium Council strips them away. Now Sophie is defenseless, alone, and at the mercy of her sworn enemies—the Brannicks, a family of warrior women who hunt down the Prodigium. Or at least that’s what Sophie thinks, until she makes a surprising discovery. The Brannicks know an epic war is coming, and they believe Sophie is the only one powerful enough to stop the world from ending. But without her magic, Sophie isn’t as confident.

Sophie’s bound for one hell of a ride—can she get her powers back before it’s too late?”

Um…not really that impressed with this book. I feel like the author tied everything up way to quickly. For as much drama and terrible things that were happening to the main characters in the first two books, I expected the “carrying out” of the plan to bring down the bad guys to take half of this book. I didn’t expect it to come out all perfect in the last 10% of the book. It just seems like a cheap way to do it.

I didn’t expect much because this book/series is a more juvenile young adult than the usual young adult books I read.

I don’t know. I was just really disappointed in how this book was carried out. It wasn’t bad…just not as good as the other two in the series.
