Book Review: Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins

Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins:
Warning contains spoilers if you have not read book 1, Hex Hall.

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?

HUGE Cliffhanger! – Seriously how can a book end on such a cliffhanger!!  The next book doesn’t come out for a year… Even with the cliffhanger I really enjoyed this book. I flew threw 360 pages in no time at all and can’t wait for book 3.

Loved Sophie’s snarkiness and all the twists and turns in the story.  This was a sequel that did not disappoint.  There is a little love triangle going on – although I’m fairly certain how it will end, (because it’s a very lopsided triangle) however I honestly would be happy with either choice.  Which is an interesting change because usually I’m really rooting for one or the other.

For those who enjoy YA paranormal stories I recommend you give the Hex Hall series a try.
