Waiting On Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine and is a fun way to see what books other bloggers just can't wait to get their hands on!




HEXBOUND (A novel of the Dark Elite #2)
Chloe Neill
Young Adult
January 4th, 2011

From Goodreads:

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.

  10. I almost put this one as my WOW list week. It was down to Hexbound or Invisible Things, which I picked. I just finished Firespell about a week ago, and I loved it! I was already in love with Chloe Neill's Chicagoland Vampire series and I am so glad she branched out into YA. Anyways, great choice!! Yay, Hexbound!
