Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.
This week's pick is Hexbound (Dark Elite #2) by Chloe Neill, coming from Penguin January 4, 2011.
Summary (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…
My Thoughts: I liked Firespell, the first book in this series. Lily is a great character, and the world Neill has created has plenty of unique aspects. I definitely am curious to see where things go after the first book, and learn more about the side characters introduced in Firespell. I love this cover and think it fits well with the first.
