Charmed (Witch Hunter #2) by Michelle Krys
Indie has spent the last few weeks frantically searching for Paige. She’s tried every spell imaginable, but witchcraft has gotten her nowhere, and she’s going crazy with guilt. Despite what her warlock boyfriend, Bishop, tells her, Indie knows it’s her fault her best friend was kidnapped by the Priory. And with the Priory destroyed, finding Paige feels more hopeless than ever-especially when Indie discovers that Paige isn’t even on Earth. She’s trapped in Los Demonios, an alternate dimension of Los Angeles filled with evil paranormals. No one who has gone there has ever come out.
Fueled by terror and loyalty, Indie is desperate to find a way into the underworld prison. She’ll worry about getting out later. But facing the dark world’s most dangerous witches and warlocks on her own means keeping her plan hush-hush-and forging alliances with some sketchy people, including a seriously sexy sorcerer.
Sometimes a witch must keep secrets from the people she cares about most. And sometimes she isn’t the only one with secrets…
The Witch Hunter duology is Michelle Krys first series and she did a pretty good job. Hexed was light reading, I swept right through that book and I am normally a slow reader. It was interesting, action- packed and best of all had magic. Michelle does it again in the sequel to Hexed aptly named Charmed.
This book takes place a few weeks after Hexed and let me tell you if you thought the shit hit the fan with the previous book then you haven’t seen nothing yet. Indie’s best friend Paige, is in a hell dimension, all around LA teens are missing and a group of sorcerers have something else up their sleeve and not everyone is going to make it out alive.
After everything that happened in Hexed Indie has become a better person and I loved that growth in the first book but she isn’t done yet. Indie grows even more in Charmed and she learns even more about the person she is. Indie struggles with things and doesn’t want to do the wrong thing but makes bad decisions because she is a person and people make mistakes. Her personal relationships takes some hits but things work out how they are suppose to.
I didn’t think much of Indie’s aunt Penny and I have to say that she does a complete one-eighty in Charmed, her growth is a little shocking but maybe not to unrealistic. After all a lot has happen to her in the past couple of months and we get to know more about what has happened to her in the past.
Okay a few things I did have a trouble with, one the Family is just as bad as the Priory. These two groups are not the good guys (even when one pretends to be). Quite frankly the Family is more irritating than the Priory, they go around saying they are the good guys when in actuality something needs to be done. Also what is kind off in this is how some things aren’t resolved and left open, while others are just magically okay.
Charmed was a good, a fast-paced read with witches, warlocks, sorcerers, magic markets, hell dimensions, an evil plot, magic and most of all friendship. After all this book is about Indie who was trying to find a way to get her best friend back. How far would you go for friendship, to do the right thing and save the day.
