Review: "Hexed" (The Witch Hunter #1) by Michelle Krys

If high school is all about social status, Indigo Blackwood has it made. Sure, her quirky mom owns an occult shop, and a nerd just won’t stop trying to be her friend, but Indie is a popular cheerleader with a football-star boyfriend and a social circle powerful enough to ruin everyone at school. Who wouldn’t want to be her?

Then a guy dies right before her eyes. And the dusty old family Bible her mom is freakishly possessive of is stolen. But it’s when a frustratingly sexy stranger named Bishop enters Indie’s world that she learns her destiny involves a lot more than pom-poms and parties. If she doesn’t get the Bible back, every witch on the planet will die. And that’s seriously bad news for Indie, because according to Bishop, she’s a witch too.

Suddenly forced into a centuries-old war between witches and sorcerers, Indie’s about to uncover the many dark truths about her life—and a future unlike any she ever imagined on top of the cheer pyramid.

My Review:
This is another book I came across while at Barnes & Noble. The cover (as always) captured my attention from down the aisle, and then I read the premise...(dun dun dunnn). It sounded good at first, buuuuut (<--and that's a big but) I'm just not feeling it.

The story was...I am not sure what the story was actually because the plot was ridiculous. To be fairly honest, it was child's play: basically the cliche that if the heroine doesn't get the bible back everyone is doomed. Then later, you come to find out it was all for nothing. By the end I was wondering why I was still reading this book. There's hardly any cool witchcraft, powers, plot, romance, awesome characters...
And for the love of all that is holy! The characters were so one dimensional. I was in a constant state of rolling my eyes; especially at the protagonist. Indigo is a vapid little cheerleader. Funny how she says she has the third highest GPA in her class...Ummmm, what school are you going to? And it doesn't count if you ride the short bus, sweetie. I swear, during the entire book she was a spineless, airheaded nitwit. First she blabs about the bible even though she knows to keep it secret, then she makes the bad guys "promise" to let her go. I mean, really? She's in LA, not Beverly Hills, get a brain and a backbone while your at it, girl!! Plus, the added romance/tension/whatever it is between Bishop and Indie was corny as hell. A major cheese-fest.
I tried sticking with this book, but I honestly couldn't wait for it to be over. The characters were nothing special, the plot was pointless and by the end I was like "where is the magic and witchcraft?". Here, let me help you out Indigo---Abracadabra..BE GONE! LOL, if only...(a girl can dream right?)
Favorite Quotes:
"It's all right." He looks out the window. "She's just pulling a Bella."
"A what?"
"A Bella. You know--guy does you wrong, so you punish him by practically killing yourself."

"Nooo" she says, throwing as much sarcasm into the word as humanly possible, "you definitely want to run toward the axe murderer."
