The spellbinding sequel to Hexed--now in paperback!


In this sequel to Hexed, a modern day witch hunt is going on in L.A. Indie risks her life to save her friend Paige, who, along with a group of other mortal teens, has been abducted and taken to Los Demonios, an alternate dimension of Los Angeles, where the most evil and murderous witches and sorcerers are sent after they've been tried for a crime.
MICHELLE KRYS lives with her husband and son in Thunder Bay, Ontario. She works part-time as an NICU nurse and spends her free time writing books for teens. Michelle is probably not a witch, though she did belong to a witchcraft club in the fifth grade and "levitated" people in her bedroom, so that may be up for debate. Charmed is her ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Very good second book. I hope there is more of these characters eventually. I love Indie and her powers, I love Bishop and how responsible he is, but also how charming and silly he can be, forgiving and honest. Jezebel's sacrifice!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from wow. Everything she said she hated or wouldn't do in the first book, she did in this one. Indie basically did the opposite of everything. Indie become Bianca in this one. Indie is a hypocrite. I wish I can take back reading this duology & read something more idk interesting, education, a better fanatsy read, anything. Nope!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Review from Esther's Ever After I had a lot of fun reading Michelle Krys' debut, Hexed, which came out last year, so needless to say I was looking forward to reading the sequel! Indie is a great character, and one who stands out to me from most other YA heroines. She's a little bit sassier, and it's also interesting to me to see a character who (at one point) was considered one of the cool, popular girls rather than the more common, bookish type. And it's precisely that attitude and spunk that leads Indie to continue on her journey in Charmed. Reasons to Read: 1. Indie's loyalty: One of Indie's remarkable character qualities is the loyalty she exhibits towards those she cares about. And the events in Charmed show just how far Indie is willing to go to help others... and it's pretty darn far! She isn't the type of person to back away from a challenge or anything difficult. Instead, she tackles those problems head on and tries her hardest to find a solution. It's an admirable quality and one that will endear her to readers. 2. A closer look at this world of witches and warlocks: Hexed was our introduction to the world of magic that Michelle had created, and while it was mysterious and interesting, we didn't get to learn that much about it in the first book. Charmed is a much closer look at what's going on here, and we also get to visit Los Demonios with Indie, which is a whole new experience and very eye-opening for her. And with this new world comes new secrets, of course... The beginning of Charmed moved along at a slower pace than I like and particularly so given the immediate problems. The stakes are incredibly high, yet Indie is forced to run through the motions to appease her aunt and act more like a normal teenager. And I get it - I can understand why Penny would insist that Indie obey the rules, but it didn't seem to fit the story and it didn't really seem to fit Penny's character either. And overall, that made this a slower read for me. As well, as much as I loved learning more about Los Demonios and the people who are trapped there, I also felt like there wasn't too much attention paid to them. There's a lot going on in this world, and not much of it is dealt with nor solved by the end. But Indie's story is told and it's told well. Michelle has a talent for writing, as evidenced by Indie's clever thinking and feisty attitude. And the action in the story is very well-told.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great series I loved the first book (Hexed) and was looking forward to reading Charmed. I was not expecting to love it even more than the first. So much adventure, danger, romance, intrigue and so unpredictable. I love Michelle's writing style and I hope to read more of her work.
