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…

Again the characters is what makes me love Chloe Neill's stories. The friendships and relationships between Lily, Jason, Scout, and Michael continue to grow. I'm very much looking forward to finding out more about Sebastian and what he is going to bring to the series. Both stories in the Dark Elite series are quick reads that will leave you laughing out loud many times during the book. Lily is finally settling into what she is and starting to learn more about what exactly she can do. HEXBOUND moves a bit faster than FIRESPELL did which was nice. I found myself having to be reminded that Lily was only 15 years old, since she is so independent being in a boarding school and all it was easy to forget. I thought HEXBOUND continued the Dark Elite series well.

I gave it a 3.5/5
