Wayward (The Wayward Trilogy, #1)
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.
When the dark magic inside of her -- magic that she never dreamt even existed -- erupts in a violent display, it kills a member of a rival family.
Now, Hex's family hopes to use her magic for their own sinister purposes and their enemies just want her dead. Abandoning her magic will leave Hex defenseless but she's seen how quickly power corrupts even the best intentions.
Caught between the seductive sorcerer who wants her power for his own and the forbidden love of a human boy, Hex has to make a choice:
Save her life or save her soul.
Ever have a book you are not totally 100% sure on how you felt about it? This is one of those for me.
On one hand it was really good. I liked most of the characters and the supernaturals in the book where pretty different from others I have seen. The main character has a good attitude. She learned early how to take care of herself.
On the other hand I just never totally got into the story or the world. I would for brief periods of time but then I would find myself not really there and wanting to get to the end. I was a little confused about what they actually where, witches with magic but who also seemed to suck out humans souls like vampires. I never knew if this was just some of them who did it, if it was a need for them or just something they liked to do.
But it was still a good read. I still had to know what was going to happen and how things would end.
