Born without magic, seventeen-year-old Helena "Hex" Wayward is an embarrassment to her power-hungry relatives.
As the weakest member of the world's most deadly magical family, Hex learns early how to avoid confrontation. There's no defending herself against an errant curse or the pit-demon that her cousins like to summon during family reunions.
Wayward was a very enjoyable read. Fast paced, it had enough action mixed in with romantic elements to keep things interesting.
Hex is a strong and independent character and she's consistent throughout the story. I love that she is a little sassy and cynical. She was the really what kept me coming back. She's an outcast not just in school, or in her family, but also in the secret society she supposedly belongs to.
The development of secondary characters was good as well, although the I felt that I need more closure with the villain, however I can hope that it will be addressed in the sequel. the preview of the sequel was also a nice teaser and even in that one chapter it's apparent that there is more depth to Hex than even shown in Wayward.
Wayward:The Witch Wars Saga is available for $12.99 at Amazon and in e-book format for $0.99 also at Amazon.
