Book Review: Dark Elite Series Books 1 & 2 by Chloe Neill

Firespell is the first installment in the Dark Elite series by Chloe Neill.  We meet Lily Parker a witty no none-sense girl who is sent to Chicago to attend St. Sophia's School for girls after her parents take a once in a lifetime trip to study in Germany. Lily is prepared for the bratty rich girls and tough course schedule but when she learns that she possesses the rare magical gift of Firespell and discovers that her parents may not be who she thought they were the only thing keeping her sane is her magical bff, Scout.

In book two, Hexbound, Lily has joined the fight against the Reapers with Scout and her rebel magic wielding friends,is finding more clues about her parents' past and is learning to control her powerful magic.  Add a potential relationship with a werewolf and a  strange relationship with her should be enemy Reaper, Sebastian, and this is a great addition to the Dark Elite series.

I gave this series a three because although I did find it highly entertaining it felt a bit young to me.  I would recommend this series to the younger side of the YA spectrum. If you are looking for a very quick, easy, action packed story with a funny heroine and entertaining side kick, I would definitely give The Dark Elite try.
