Review: Demonglass

Demonglass (Hex Hall #2) by Rachel Hawkins

Published March 1st 2011 by Hyperion Books CH
Hardcover, 359 pages
Source: Bought at Bookdepository for $15.29



"Sophie Mercer thought she was a witch.

That was the whole reason she was sent to Hex Hall, a reform school for delinquent Prodigium (aka witches, shapeshifters, and fairies). But that was before she discovered the family secret, and that her hot crush, Archer Cross, is an agent for The Eye, a group bent on wiping Prodigium off the face of the earth.

Turns out, Sophie’s a demon, one of only two in the world—the other being her father. What’s worse, she has powers that threaten the lives of everyone she loves. Which is precisely why Sophie decides she must go to London for the Removal, a dangerous procedure that will destroy her powers.

But once Sophie arrives she makes a shocking discovery. Her new friends? They’re demons too. Meaning someone is raising them in secret with creepy plans to use their powers, and probably not for good. Meanwhile, The Eye is set on hunting Sophie down, and they’re using Archer to do it. But it’s not like she has feelings for him anymore. Does she?

8/10





This was one of those books that caught me off guard. For some reason it was so different from Hex Hall, but still just as good!

I must say this novel was undeniably funny and kept me giggling at random times. Rachel Hawkins creates a very interesting world with amazing characters. With just the right blend of action, romance and humour its definitely not a book to miss!

What an ending!! I can't wait for the next one!

Spoilers

Oh sigh another love triangle, but for now I'm on Archer's side! Some great twists and turns at the end there!

"Dad, she's just going to freak. And probably come here and get me, and then you guys will start yelling at each other, and I'll have to act out by wearing lots of eyeliner and doing the drugs ..."

"She was my assignment."
"From The Eye?"
"No, from the Boy Scouts. That Witch Dating badge just kept eluding me."
"Well, you must have at least three Total Douchebag badges by now, so that has to count for something."  

"None of this makes any sense."
"I'm beginning to think I should make that the title of my autobiography." 
 





Here is the Hex Hall trailer, I don't see one for Demonglass
