This book is the second book in a series called The Hex Factor.
Now Xanthe knows the truth about the mysterious X’s that she keeps seeing, and she’s put the person responsible in her place, she’s hoping for a little time to just be a normal teenager before having to get to work as a True Witch.
But her counterpart Hexing Witch has different plans. She has gone to London to team up with other Hexing Witches to get revenge on Xanthe for shifting the power of balance to the side of good.
Xanthe follows, and finds herself facing a small army of Hexing Witches alone, in the middle of what seems like a natural disaster. It will take all of her strength and mind to fight them, and a lot of help from a new friend to get back home in time to save her last chance to bag herself the boy she’s always wanted.
I have no idea if there will be a third book or not in this series, but I will be keeping my ears open for if there is.
