So, this is it. The legendary Spell Bound. The cover. Is awesome. Once again it ties into the story, which you all should know by now, is something that I adore. I hate it when covers don't tie in.
Now onto the actual story. It picks up right where Demon Glass leaves off. Sophie has to find her mother and so she takes the Iteneris to try to find her. When she finally gets there things get iffy. I know Sophie has been through a lot, but she seemed a little off her game. She wasn't as funny as the other books, but I think that might be because of all the crap she's going through: *highlight to view spoiler* Her moms a Brannick, she's a Brannick, Archer is back, she likes Cal yatta yatta. *spoiler* Now come on! Cut the girl some slack right? Nope. Crap hits the fan and things get messy.
Now, I was sad because this is the end of the trilogy, and I LOVE this trilogy. I ADORE Rachel Hawkins and the way she writes. But the ending. COME. ON!!!! WHY?! JUST! ARGH! The ending had me sobbing. I read the dreaded page that I'm talking about and I just started bawling. My girlfriend thought that I had somehow broken my foot or something because I literally sobbed like there was no tomorrow.
Le sigh. There is nothing I can do to change what has happened, but in any instance I love this book. I give it 3 stars. I can't bring myself to love the story as much as I should because of what happens in the story, and because I'm being a little whiner because the series is over. I hear there's going to be a spin off, but it's going to be with different characters, which I'm not a huge fan of anyway. I recommend this to anyone who has read the Hex Hall series, for obvious reasons, and to anyone who likes original stories on witches and the supernatural.
