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?
OhmygoodNESS, I freakin' ADORE this series! Demonglass packs just as much of a punch as Hex Hall, if not more!! Rachel Hawkins continues her story in this second installment of the Hex Hall Series bringing readers even more passion, mystery, danger, and some pretty darn evil characters. Fans of Hex Hall will devour this book.
Demonglass picks up a few months after the events that ended the first book. Sophie has been dealing with the fact that Archer betrayed her and all Prodigium by working with The Eye. And oh yeah? He tried to kill her. If only she could stop thinking about him...
A visit from her dad, the head of the council, sends Sophie reeling as she learns that she, her friend Jenna, and Cal will be spending the summer in London. Why will Cal be going? The answer to that question may come as a bit of a shock! Sophie is floored when she arrives at Thorne Abbey and learns that Nick and Daisy, two teenagers living at headquarters, are demons who were made. Who is raising demons? And will this spark the war that Sophie and her dad so fear?
In addition to that concern, Archer bursts back onto the scene in a powerful way and Sophie must make an important choice: Does she follow her heart and trust the boy she loves? Or does she listen to everyone in her life and avoid temptation? Allies and villians are hard to tell apart in this super exciting sequel.
Whew. Writing that was HARD! It's so tempting to reveal some pretty big spoilers but that would be criminal! Demonglass is action-packed and full of twists and turns. Frankly, I have no idea WHO our dear Sophie should trust. Things are definitely not as they appear and trusting the wrong person in this world can have dire consequences.
And the ending.... THE ENDING! Talk about a cliffhanger. I actually moaned a little, I was that annoyed that the story had to end. Lucky for me, book three is already out and bought and waiting on my bookshelf. I don't know HOW readers did it when they had to wait a year between books!
If you haven't read this series, I highly recommend you hop right on this train because these books are SUPER fun rides. Rachel Hawkins knows how to tell a story that is engaging, funny, full of action, passion, love, friendship, betrayal, and just the right amount of horror tossed into the mix. I love these books. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. You could too! Read them NOW! Enjoy! :)
