Product Description

Product Description

Small-town fifteen-year-old Mindee Vefreet thinks she’s going crazy when she sees a girl from school glowing in the dark. But when bad things start to happen around the glowy girl, it quickly becomes clear that what Mindee’s eyes can see is very real, and very dangerous.

Mindee is a seer, able to see hexes clinging to the victims of black magic. With no knowledge of magic or the occult, and no experience in breaking spells, attempting to break the hex seems almost impossible. Soon other people are getting hexed, the magic is turning lethal, and Mindee is drawing dangerous attention.

Because, to a certain type of witch, the only thing better than a good seer is a dead seer.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Hex Breaker's Eyes 15 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I received this book from Story Cartel in exchange for a fair and honest review.

This story is split into 3 parts which makes it easy to read one part before taking a break. The story is well-written and you can read it through without having to think too deeply about what has been said before. The pieces of the puzzle all come together in a satisfactory ending to each part so you are not left wondering what happened to who.

I would think that this book is definitely aimed at the Young Adult genre, maybe from 10 years of age upwards. Still, as a mature reader, this in no way diminished my enjoyment of this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars MEAN GIRLS Meets That One Episode of SUPERNATURAL 22 April 2014
By Kelly Garbato - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
(Full disclosure: I received a free electronic copy of this book for review through Library Thing’s Member Giveaways program.)

I wasn’t frightened until the girl started to glow in the dark.

“You seriously can’t see that?” I ask my best friend.

“See what?” [...]

Across the street from us, a girl is glowing. Well, I shouldn’t say that. It’s not like she’s painted in neon green body glitter or anything. But this girl’s got a real sort of, well, glow. There’s yellow light radiating from her. She looks like a low-watt bulb. I swear she does.

But Tamara doesn’t see it.

***

Fifteen-year-old Mindee Vefreet is just your average Wilfred Laurier Secondary School sophomore. Sure, maybe she’s not the most popular girl in school; her family doesn’t have a whole lot of money, and after her mother was institutionalized for schizophrenia, the kids at school started to whisper behind her back. And right in her face. You’d think that after her mother died, they’d back off just a bit – but you’d be wrong. Even now, years later, Mindee’s known as ‘the daughter of that psycho.’

But, for all intents and purposes, the only exceptional thing about Mindee is how unexceptional she is.
Until, one day, she isn’t.

One day, and quite unexpectedly, Mindee discovers that she’s a seer: her mind is open to magic, and she can see hexes manifest in their victims in the form of a glowing light. When Dina Jennings, a popular Mean Girl senior, begins to glow yellow, Mindee thinks that maybe she’s losing it like her mom. But when the light seems to interact with its surroundings in a very real and physical way – causing all sorts of misfortune for Dina – Mindee is relieved. And not a little scared. If she’s not going crazy, then just what the hell is going on?

With the help of her friends – BFF Tamara, Tam’s boyfriend Ryan, and their anime- and occult-obsessed friend Marlene – Mindee sets out to learn more about this strange and unwelcome new gift, and save Dina from a seemingly minor hex that’s continuing to escalate with its caster’s anger. Though they are able to find and destroy the talisman that binds Dina to her wenemy (witch enemy! you like?), in so doing they attract the attention of an older, more powerful practitioner of the dark arts. And she desires their very souls.

The first of a planned trilogy, THE HEX BREAKER’S EYES is a quick and enjoyable read: it’s kind of like MEAN GIRLS meets that one episode of SUPERNATURAL. (Malleus Maleficarum. OF COURSE I’m talking about Malleus Maleficarum!) I wasn’t quite sure what to expect – when it comes to books, I usually prefer science fiction to fantasy, even fantasy of the paranormal type – but I was pleasantly surprised. This book is hella fun. The narrator’s voice feels real and believable, and the plot moves quickly. In fact, Tennant doesn’t waste a second – he delves right into the story on page one (see the excerpt above), and takes off running. I can’t wait for the next books to drop!

My only complaint? The copious use of the b-word. Gendered slurs are not cool, yo!

3.0 out of 5 stars A unique YA paranormal story 1 May 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I won this book in a LibraryThing giveaway. The heroine is a high school student in a small town who suddenly starts to see someone glowing. It takes a while before she figures out what is going on, then it turns out she has a specific power. The romance in the book isn't with her, but between her best friend and a boy at school. She ends up with a small cohort of friends who help her save people who have been hexed, once they can figure out what is going on.

I was pleased that there was not only a lack of love triangles, but that the heroine's love interest stayed only that. The ending was a bit crazy and didn't fully make sense, but was quite dramatic. And I was surprised that they didn't even talk about why people would have different colored auras, and whether there was any way to use the color to figure things out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great YA Novel 21 May 2014
By Jay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I requested this book from the Author through Librarything Member giveaways after being drawn to both the title and the great cover. Although I found the Blurb for the book to be a little dry I decided to give the book a try. I was granted the book through member giveaways in exchange for an honest review.

My initial impression of the book is that's its a well written Paranormal YA Fantasy novel its was a good read but the target audience is clearly teens and Young Adults. I found the book to be a good read the author has a smooth writing voice which makes for a great reading experience. I started reading this book on may 20,2014 and finished on may 21,2014 I did not find any dry spots in the novel the flow was very good.

The Novel is about a young girl named Mindee who suddenly begins to see hexes.

Mindee and her friends Tam, Ryan & Marlene set out to break a hex attached to one of their school mates before it kills her by determining who cast the Hex and why.

The author does a great job with the authenticity of the characters. The story line is good I would recommend this novel to anyone who's into YA Paranormal Fantasy Novel.
5.0 out of 5 stars Well done and kept me coming back. 7 July 2014
By R.A. White - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book, and was surprised to see on goodreads that S.D. was a man. I say that because the main character is female, and usually I can tell when female characters are written by men. Maybe it's just I'm not particularly girly, so a less girly girl seemed good to me, I don't know. Anyway, I liked that Mindee didn't do lots of stupid stuff all the time like refusing to tell people about her stalker for no apparent reason and things like that. I mean, are real women that way? And she wasn't always thinking about boys, either. Occasionally she did, but not enough to get annoying. Two thumbs up to S.D. for creating an interesting character without a love interest (or a love triangle, uhg.) I don't MIND a love interest, but I've found that writers tend to rely on them and add them when it's not really great for the story. I also liked that Mindee was proactive even though she wasn't exactly excited about her situation. Yes, she has a special ability, but no, she's not just driven along by fate. Oh, and while the book stays open for sequels, it's not a cliff hanger. Thumbs up again.
Mindee IS a 15 year old girl, and the book is definitely intended for a young audience, but I still had fun with it. The writing was good, with few typos, although the Canadian spelling did throw me off a few times :). The only thing I really didn't like was that it's told in the present tense. I don't enjoy that in general, and there were a couple times near the beginning where the tense shifted, which confuses and annoys me, but after that there were no more issues. I'm glad I didn't put it down when I first came across those shifts because it really was a fun read.
Language: There is some profanity. Not every other word, or anything, but enough that those sensitive to it might get annoyed a few times. I believe the book is intended for older teens.
Sexual Content: None.
Overall Message/Plot: No messages that I noticed, but the plot was well done and the rules were followed. There were times when I questioned whether the author was breaking his own rules, but when I went back to check, it turned out I had just misread something or misremembered. I will definitely be getting book two, The Hex Breaker's Heart.
