Review: Hex: A Witch and Angel Tale by Ramona Wray

Like most girls at Rosemound High School, seventeen-year-old Lily Crane is acutely aware of Ryder Kingscott. Hands down the cutest guy in school, Ryder is cool, mysterious, and utterly untouchable…especially for Lily. For when she touches someone, Lily instantly learns all about their lives. And while such a skill might seem nifty, in truth it is wrecking Lily’s life. 

So she is shocked when Ryder asks her out — and even more shocked to discover he has a rival. Lucian Bell is the gorgeous new kid who can’t take his eyes off of Lily. Being pursued by two hotties should make a girl happy, but Lily is skeptical. The boys act as if they’ve met before, hating each other with a passion that could only be rooted in a dark, dangerous past. A past full of terrible secrets. The kind of secrets that could get a girl killed.

Hex: A Witch and Angel Tale was not at all what I expected it to be. I thought it would be a book full of fluff and cuteness like the cover makes it out to be, but it was so much more. I enjoyed it way more than I thought I would. Sure, it was a little slow for me at first, but the story ended up being heartwarming. Ramona Wray is such an enticing writer that after the first thirty pages or so, I was absorbed in the story.

The book follows Lily, a girl with an unique ability: She can see the past and present of anyone she touches. Then, she meets Ryder, a very good looking boy, and everything she knew changes as he starts to pay attention to her. Ryder is such a sweet guy that it is very easy to love him. The best part is that when Lily touches Ryder, nothing happens. Throw in another good looking boy named Lucian, and we have a love triangle.

If you like books with romance, suspense, and mystery, then this is the book for you. There is plenty of action, and the mystery of the book will keep you guessing. Hex: A Witch and Angel Tale is an enjoyable paranormal fantasy. I definitely recommend picking it up.

Rating: 4/5

  1. Isn't the cover just adorable? But do not be fooled Hex, A Witch and Angel Tale is nowhere near the adorable, light, bubbly read that the cover may portray. This book was so much more than just a light read.
