First, there are the local residents who form a scripture-spouting posse and kidnap Tammy to "defend" Duvall, Texas, against witchcraft. Next, someone saddles her with a secret package chock full of dangerous visions, just as the president of WAM-the World Association of Magic- arrives with his entourage to investigate her. And who worse to examine Tammy's entanglement with off-limits and drop-dead gorgeous wizard Bryn Lyons than his ex-girlfriend? Not to mention that the clash between the locals and the magical visitors leads to a series of unnatural disasters that may doom them all.

While the fate of the town hangs in the balance, one thing's certain: this would-be witch is ready to rumble, Texas style.

I do so enjoy Frost's humor. And YAYS, no Zack in sight! Woot woot!

This installment kicks off with one kidnapping after another. All in the same day. And every time, it's Tamara. As always, she runs to Bryn, our favorite borderline-dark-side wizard.

Halfway Hexed really sets the stage around Bryn. Humanizing him in a big way and earning some major sympathy points. Of course, I was already behind Bryn but hopefully this just solidifies his and Tamara's relationship. There's no flipping way she's going back to Zach.

Tamara gets delivered a brooch which sparks her first ever vision. And it's of Bryn's mother. So there's finally a need to truly get to the heart of this famous prophecy that gives reason that Tam and Bryn should never be together. There's a hellalot of issues with the townsfolk and the Conclave. Lots of kidnapping, car smashing, truth serums, and poisonings. Oh, let's not forget the Biblical plagues and it is Texas so *everybody* has a freaking gun. Never a dull moment, ya know? And when Tamara starts her chatting with inanimate objects the fun just gets better and better.

And then we meet Andre, Bryn's best friend, who is as awesome as awesome gets.

Loved the ending! It left me wonderfully giddy, and a very happy girl. 4 out of 5 stars.
