If high school is all about social status, Indigo Blackwood has it made. Sure, her quirky mom owns an occult shop, and a nerd just won’t stop trying to be her friend, but Indie is a popular cheerleader with a football-star boyfriend and a social circle powerful enough to ruin everyone at school. Who wouldn’t want to be her?
Then a guy dies right before her eyes. And the dusty old family Bible her mom is freakishly possessive of is stolen. But it’s when a frustratingly sexy stranger named Bishop enters Indie’s world that she learns her destiny involves a lot more than pom-poms and parties. If she doesn’t get the Bible back, every witch on the planet will die. And that’s seriously bad news for Indie, because according to Bishop, she’s a witch too.
Suddenly forced into a centuries-old war between witches and sorcerers, Indie’s about to uncover the many dark truths about her life—and a future unlike any she ever imagined on top of the cheer pyramid.
Indigo….you’re awesome. WICKED! For me thats only the word that can describe this book 😉 Haha see what I did there. Of course you did. So this book was…..I loved it. It was fantastic. It has been such a long time since I’ve read a witch book, but I am so glad that I found it. The last really great witch book that I read with Residue Laury Falter and since you all know that I loved that book, I am officially saying that I think (I think) that I like this book better than Residue (even though Residue what fantastic) It was funny, wicked, and witty. And one of the great things about this story was the characters. they were just so complex and all had their own very unique personalities that makes you love every single one (except the cheerleader and Indie’s boyfriend.)
Lets start with Indigo. I loved her. She had so much characters development throughout the entire book and loved every single thing she faced. She started out as the perky cheerleaders who wouldn’t be in danger for her life. and by the end of the book she turned out to be such a funny girly badass. Girly badass. She was also so smart. If you read the book and you saw what happened at the end with that plan. You know that plan. Yeah that one. The one that was ALL Indie’s idea. SO SMART! I did not see that coming. I’m so proud *wipes tear* she’s grown up so fast.
Then there is Bishop. Bishop. Bishop. You have been added to the fictional boyfriend list. First I have to admit he was a bit. Just a tiny bit. To self-centered for me, but he grew on me. He turned out so sweet and witty and just plain awesomeness. Plus him and Indie together. I SHIP THEM SOOOOO HARD!!! I was a bit annoyed with them during the course of the middle of the book because of what happened while they were training but then they fixed everything and everything turned out to be okay and everything I read turned out to be fantastic and it was just a very happy meal.
Now for the rest of the characters. The cheerleader and the boyfriend. Just stop okay. I don’t like them. AT ALL. Annoying since the first page. The mother was just the sweetest thing ever, I really wish we got see more of her in the book. I loved Aunt Penny. She was amazing. But as I continued to read the book I started to dislike her even more. I was a bit mixed with her, and I don’t know how I’m going to feel about her in the second book.
Overall the book was fantastic and I am so excited for the rest of the series. There is so many people I would recommend this book too especially all of you. just read it! Take a chance on it. It was amazing for me maybe it will be amazing for you too 🙂
