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?A great second installment to the Hex Hall series. This book will make you laugh with Sophie's quips and sarcasm, make you swoon with it's delicious boys and finish it in record time because you just can't take the suspense.
We get to learn a lot more about Sophie's dad in Demonglass. He's very much like Sophie in someways and even though he hadn't met Sophie for most of her life, I think he makes a great dad. Although he's the reason Sophie went out to England, he does not have a big roll in the events that unfold. Demonglass was definitely not as simplistic as Hex Hall. We have more mysterious and a possible love triangle forming?
For those Archer fans, we do get to see more of him in the book, but new teams might be forming with Cal in the picture; who we find out is betrothed to Sophie. I don't want to give much away but if you enjoyed the first book, you will love the second one even more.
But what a cliff hanger! I can't believe I have to wait a year for the next one. Where's Jenna!?
