School Library Journal
Gr 10 Up—Lucifer is many things: she is a thief, she has supernatural abilities, she is fiercely loyal, and she has a strong sense of right and wrong. She is also an attractive young woman with luminous amber eyes. Her real name is Luci Jennifer Inacio Das Neves. For the most part she steals wondrous items for money and for the thrill of the chase, but sometimes she finds herself working for other motives. When an evil man named Dietrich wants her to steal a powerful object called the carasinth for him, he threatens to kill her employer and friend Val if she does not comply. What follows is a fast-paced and astounding story with plenty of fight scenes, gunplay, explosions, otherworldly adventures, and blood. LOTS of blood. The creativity of the story is matched by Rios's breathtaking art and the astounding colors. For example, in order to find the carasinth, Lucifer has to go to the morgue, cut open the dead body of a 300-pound man, and enter Quandrin's lair through the door created by his corpse. The strange liquid world she enters is jaw-droppingly detailed, realized in amazing technicolor hues. Nelson created the character of Lucifer for his "Fall of Cthulhu" graphic-novel series (Boom!), but this is Lucifer's first stand-alone collection, and it isn't necessary to have read the other series to enjoy it. Hexed is sure to generate a whole new legion of fans for this amazing thief.—Andrea Lipinski, New York Public Library

    Great Occult Storyline

    The main character is a pretty interesting girl. With a name like Lucifer, how could you not be? A teenage witch-thief is pretty cool and her intro at the start of the book is great. There is also some other really great occult moments. The story held steady and ended with a pretty good ‘how she’s going to get out this’ moment.

    The artwork was a perfect fit. It was a mixture of indie, anime and expressionism. If I could change anything it would be the colors, they were slightly bland.
