This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.

 


 

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?

 


 

I enjoyed this book and I think everyone who is a fan of Hex Hall will like the ending. Sophie’s story’s wrapped up and the loose ends we’ve gotten during the first and second book have more or less been solved. As much as I’d like to say that this is the best book since it’s the ending, I can’t. The best book is still the first one.

I like how the characters in the series has become endearing. Sophie makes me smile and laugh a lot, Archer is very charming, Cal oh Cal and finally the adorable Jenna whom is my favorite character. All of them managed to make me laugh.

We didn’t get the epic finale many people had hoped for, simply because of how Hawkins is writing. It wouldn’t have befitted this quirky type of book. I hate the ending to be honest. I would have loved there to be a different ending, but honest to god I couldn’t find a better resolution.

The reason for only giving it three stars is simple; it felt so rushed! The book could have used more pages.

Still recommendable! Overall, really good series.
