Review, March 15:As much as it literally hurts rating this book four stars, I have to do it. I will admit to anyone who wants to hear that I have pretty much been obsessively waiting for this ending since I read Hex Hall on my birthday two years ago. Really. I have waited so long, and as much as I want to say it was perfect it wasn't.Not to say it wasn't enjoyable. In fact, I absolutly love it. I love the humor, I love the twist in Part two. I adore Sophie, Archer, Jenna, and Cal, and I so wish [...]
Are you trying to make me insane, Ms. Hawkins? What happens if I die before this book comes out, huh? I will have been left with the cliffhanger of Demonglass as an ending. I hope you're happy with yourself . .Okay, okay, I am bordering on the melodramatic, I know. I just can't believe this book's release is so far away! That ending was evil. Not demon evil, but evil enough.
I amSpellbound.Every time I read a book by a Rachel, it seems I am instantly captivated. Let me just recall some of these lovelies. Rachel E. Carter, Rachel Higginson and now Rachel Hawkins. Maybe it also has a lot to do with my awesome big sister being Rachel too.Now, now, let’s go to the review.As much as I would like to say this is the best book in the series, I could not do that because honestly, compared to the first two, this is not as great butere’s a BIG BUT (no pun intended. serious [...]
Is someone having fun conspiring against me?2012?!Is this some kind of joke?Should I be laughing?Probably I should, but no, I will kill somebody and then I'll feel better.*Thinks about killing some certain author but what if that certain author has a fourth book? Who would write it then, right? Kills a mosquito instead*No, I don't fell better.IWANTSpell Bound!*Starts creating a diabolic plan to, somehow (time machine?), drop in 2012 and come back with the book*
I need this book soooooo bad! After that ultimate cliffhanger I was like whatwhatwoah.at couldn't have been it.I actually kept on turning the page to see if there was a secret couple of pages that I was missing. WHY ,HAWKINS, WHYYY?!This is just cruel. :((( I think all of my favorite authors are conspiring against me to have totally awful cliffhangers and not publish their books for extended periods of time. SighhhEdit: Ohhh I do like the name of the book. Spell Bound! Woot! All I'm saying is So [...]
I want this like Sophie Mercer wants Archer Cross. (In my bed with me now! Because that's where I read books)The above is my pre-reading review. Liked it! I always need more Archer though. Wonder what the spin-off series is going to be about. (view spoiler)[I kinda hope the little Brannick girls. (hide spoiler)]PSA Unrelated to the book but important. ["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>
Was it just me or was anyone else truly and utterly disappointed with this book? I really, really, really liked the first two, but this one just didn't do it for me - not because Sophie didn't choose the guy I was rooting for but becasue the whole book itself was pretty blah.First of all, I LOVED Sophie in the first two books. This one, not so much. She was just downright annoying. "Hellalicious? Duck, duck, demon? Brannicks, magic and hell, ohmy?" Really?!?! I know Hawkins was writing Sophie as [...]
D' Epic BattlesHarry's versionAragorn's versionSophie's versionThere are lots of reasons why I gave it two stars or what we called OK stars rather than the Liked stars.The Hex Hall has been highlighted or well known for its being fluffy, charming and funny. And that’s why I liked this series. This third book on the other hand is too darn dark to be neither these three. sigh!Initially I had problems with the "whole book". I never felt fully immersed with it. I felt like a ping pong ball that co [...]
I need this now!! "HOLY HELL WEASEL" ! Look at the purple on the cover! PRETTTTY. Want, want, want so much!___"Holy hell weasel" perfection. Spell Bound is faultless and a brilliant ending to the series. I could not have asked for more.Spell Bound picks up where we left off in Demon Glass Well kind of. Sophie's powers have been sealed off and she now finds herself with the Brannicks. But they have a plan and Sophie is the key. Then, suddenly, Sophie finds herself back at Hex Hall and she'll need [...]
Want it Need it!!! I kept hitting next page on my kindle at the last page. that's just plain old evil!!! >.< I should protest the next book, but I WANT IT!!! and for some reason, I'm rooting for Cal Archer I trust him as far as i can throw him.4/5/12- finished the book in one sitting. I was suspious at first with the begining but all turned out beautifully besides one parte you Archer! Curse you! Lol (team cal always!!)
Pre-review:Am I the only one who have grown to dislike Sophie and think she's becoming increasingly annoying during the first two books?Am I the only one to think Ms. Hawkins' supposed 'humor' and witty remarks are getting old? Am I the only one who thinks witty remarks are nice, but if they were spoon-fed to us in almost every single page of a novel, then I will have to say 'enough is enough'?In another words, I don't have much high hope for that third book of the series.Short Review:1.5 star.I [...]
Sophie finds herself on enemy territory. She doesn't know if Cal, her father and Archer made it out safely. She doesn't know what happend to Jenna. She doesn't know why her mother is with the Brannicks and she doesn't really know where she landed.The latter question is answered when she gets attacked by a redhead girl with green eyes.But when she finds her mother she discovers that all her life has been a lie. Her mother is one of the Brannicks, which makes her one of them as well.Her family are [...]
The series has been losing steam since the second book. Scenes, actions and plots in this book feel overly simplified and rushed. (view spoiler)[Sophie breaks Lara's control over her - a control over three generations and two bloodlines, a main plot device - done over several sentences in one paragraph. The underworld scene - apparently the underworld is a cavern, a small one at that, and they walk couple of hundred yards in it, then it's done.Given the amount of hardship the characters are drag [...]
I'm not sure how long has it been since I've read Demonglass, but while reading this one, it felt like it has been too long.It's like my brain lost it's ability to remember details from previous books and at some times, I was lost.I forgot names, relationships and some pretty big events that happened before this book.However, page by page, I remebered most of it.This was an okay last book in the series. It was not an epic finale and I can't even call it a conclusion since it left open door for a [...]
This book was really good! But it is my least favorite book in the trilogy, and it's not because it was bad, it's because everything in this book was just so fast pace I had trouble grasping onto what was going on. Still a great book though!
I finished reading this book last night, and I needed to calm down before I write a review. (This contains few spoilers, so watch out!) I'm too depressed, too sad, and too frustrated. I know I should have not taken this book so personally, but I've grown to really like Cal, and it has hurt me damn much on what has happened to him. He didn't deserve it. It was too much. I hate Hawkins for doing it to him, she didn't even give him a chance to be happy. And I also hate myself because I'm so affecte [...]
RATING: 2 Out Of 5Major. Let. Down.How un-surprising that the last novel in the Hex Hall series would be a major let down and be utterly disappointing. Eghh its infuriating some of the events that transpired in the novel and readers you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about when you read it. The novel is un-funny – though it does try very hard to be so, but I’m afraid it falls short in the funny department. Looks like Hawkins used up all her cans of funny in the previous two books, and [...]
Wow! This series really is enchanting!No wonder,I was also bewitched in Rachel Hawkins' School Spirits which is clearly btw not a sequel to Hex Hall,nor Hex Hall is a sequel to School Spirits.But both have a different kind of entertaining stories where in the other series,you'll find the story of Izzy(Isolde) while the other is about Sophie.I can't believe that the newly introduced characters here were actually the characters I was missing in School Spirits,(though they were already mentioned in [...]
Solid ending to this series. I liked how it concluded.
Esta serie definitivamente y NO SÉ POR QUÉ se transformó en un guilty pleasure impresionante. Sé que es mala, sé que es cliché y sé que es olvidable, pero algo me enganchó y me encantó. Este tomo, el desenlace de la saga, fue más interesante y dinámico que el segundo y las escenas finales fueron muy emocionantes. Se la super recomiendo a chixs que estén comenzando a meterse en la lectura.
First thing first. I love the ending. (view spoiler)[Though, happy endings are too mainstream, it seems to me that the ending of the third installment of this book, this whole trilogy was heart-warming and pure happiness. I can picture Sophie smiling, holding the hands of Jenna and Archer, also smiling too. (hide spoiler)]The story has started when Sophie enter the Itineris and came up in the Brannicks homestead and in just that particular beginning, a revelation has shocked Sophie. Me too. I re [...]
It wasn't terrible beyond belief, but I didn't connect with it. I enjoyed the interaction between Sophie & Elodie, & Torrin was a decent side character. I didn't even mind Cal's resolution, per se.But guys, the forced humor. The inappropriately timed snark. The constant barrage of lame-ass jokes. ENOUGH. STFU. Sophie barely opens her mouth unless it's to say something humorous (or the author's version thereof). True, Sophie has always been a smartass, but in the past she knew when to shu [...]
This book was a crazy ride, and I loved it! It was a great end to the trilogy, but I'm going to miss the series!Check out my video review! youtube/watch?v=uMbHME
Rachel Hawkins knows how to make me smile !
Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars!I don't want to write this review. Instead, I want to hide in the corner with a blanket and some tissues so I can read this book all over again because: It. Was. AMAZING! Taking place right where Demonglass left off, Spell Bound starts off running and doesn't slow down at all. Every time you think that something is going right and the cast will finally get a break, something else goes wrong that leaves you flipping pages faster than before. Hawkins knows how to write a [...]
Popcorn! If I had to pick a mood-food to go with these books it would have to be a big buttery bowl of popcorn. It just goes so nicely with the theme of entertaining and fun as hell!I'm gonna keep this brief since really all I have to say is that I freaken love this series!!It's fun and funny, it's exciting and completely consuming. It doesn't have one dry moment. I love the writing and the zingy dialog. The characters are incredibly easy to love, the romance is giggly swoon-worthy and the story [...]
Carino! Fresco e simpatico, questo libro mi ci voleva proprio in questo periodo!Sophie è una protagonista che sa prendersi in giro, che trasforma, grazie a delle battute mirate, le situazioni più difficili in qualcosa di molto più simpatico. Certo, mi aspettavo un pochino di più da questo ultimo volume, e si, sono acida, ma lo pseudo triangolo tra Cal, la stessa Sophie e Archer mi è sembrato, lasciatemelo dire, INUTILE, così come il sacrificio di Cal alla fine. Cioè no, non ci sto. E si, [...]
Left me mostly bored, the author really fell into some of the pitfalls for what not to do in a sequel. Introduce forgettable, almost pointless characters that appear infrequently and leave little impression? Check. Resolve the cliffhangers from the last book in the most passive way possible? Check. Less action/character development/plot than the previous ones? Check. I'm just glad this one ends rather cleanly so I don't have to keep reading this series.
