About the Book:
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…

Any doubts left after completing Firespell were immediately dissapated from the start of Hexbound. This novel was action packed from page one. Lily is not only a newby to the Adept Society, but she is a newby to magic in general. After suffering from an direct hit by a Firespell user she has miraculously appeared to have Firespell magic of her own. With help from her new Adept friends, and others maybe not easily considered friends, she has found herself growing in her abilites. Lily is a very take charge kind of girl that readers will fall in love with. Being new to the world of magic it is interesting to watch Lily's experiences; she seems very open minded which leaves her consistently questioning the nature of everyone she interacts with whether friend or foe. Being a rarity with the Firespell powers it seems Lily is becoming an interest of everyone in the magical world. Although, Jason's interests seem to go far deeper than her magic; that attraction between the two allows for a deeply romantically charged atmosphere. Unfortunately, I am not sure what the future holds for this couple especially with the regular appearances of one mysterious Sabastien. It seems that his attention is for far more than the simple teachings of Firespell. Above all else Lily is constantly looking for answers to questions about her parents. After having just discovered that they are not teaching Philosphy at the local college or on a sabbatical in Europe; she is discovering that her entire world has been packed full of lies and betrayals that she can't seem to unravel. With nothing but times; she spends her day learning,  night fighting everything creepy, and any spare moments looking for answers about her estranged family. With nothing but questions the future for the Dark Elite Series is unclear, but what is clear is the promise for a action-packed thrill ride of answers for the books to come.
