The stakes are definitely upped in Charmed the second book in Michelle Krys' Hexed Series.
Ever since Indie found out she was a witch, and her life went through the ringer it seems to be non-stop. She doesn't know where her BF Paige is at, but she will STOP at nothing to find her. Even if it means going against the people who care for her (and are just trying to keep her safe.)
Basically the story revolves around Indie trying to find Paige and when she learns that she's trapped in a witch/wizard prison she finds a way to get there, and along the way meets some helpful (and hot) guides. Not only that, but she learns truths about others and herself that could either break or make her.
Indie is definitely becoming a favorite of mine for so many reasons. I mean sure she started off kind of bratty and snobby, but she's grown so much. She's caring and loyal to a fault, determined, strong willed and like I said will stop at nothing to find her friend. :) I enjoyed seeing her powers become something more than just flying, and what not.
Then you still have Bishop hanging around. We really didn't see a whole lot of him like I wanted. :( We did get to meet another yummy character named Cruz (see a paragraph above).
There are definitely some unfortunate events that happened that made me wanna cry.
