Hex, A Witch and Angel Tale
Aah, to fall in love with a book within the prologue? Not an easy thing. I didn't fall, I got captured. Hex has something some of these other YA books seem to be missing. Something I couldn't quite put my finger on. Knowledge. Not something you can learn from college. Life. That's it! Hex has knowledge and Hex has life. There's so many people wanting to run out and write a book to say that they are published. This is what they are missing. Ramona doesn't just have a gift for writing, there's something deeper there. I don't know what it is but it's brilliant! I can't wait to see what she gives us next!
To tell you that Lily was just an ordinary teenager is simply out of the question. She can't have a boyfriend because anyone that she touches, well, lets just say she finds out way too much information on them, and then ends up passing out. Guess you gotta take the good with the bad. Her best friend is Jane. She goes by J. They are as close as can be. They know everything about each other.
Out of nowhere, Ryder Kingscott, who has never bothered to talk to Lily before, has now confronted her, and wants to take her out. Seriously? He doesn't just want to go to prom, he wants to date also. This just doesn't make sense. She tells him it sounds confusing, he tells her he'll be waiting.
Weeks go by. All she can think about is Ryder. How cute he is. How she wants to go tell him she's ready,but he never talked with her before and suddenly wanted to jump into a relationship? He knew the name of her cat? How? Stalker? She wanted him! Finally she was ready. Enough of this! A couple days after the 'official' couple news had spread the school, Ryder asked Lily to touch him. Something in her thought he must be crazy, but something in her also thought he knew what he was doing. When the touched, nothing happened! This was amazing!
Now, at school, in walks a new guy, Lucian Bell. When Lily turns to Ryder she sees his eyes blaring. Lucian wants to sit next to Lily but Ryder isn't having it. Lily wants to learn more about him and Ryder seems to know all the deets but won't share. Once Lucian finally gets Lily alone he tells her that Ryder isn't who she thinks he is. There was a hex put on her and Ryder was sent here for a purpose. He doesn't love her. He's going to hurt her.
This can't be! What's going on?!
