Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins

March 1st 2011, Hyperion-Disney
359 pages, Hardcover
Won from Tynga’s Reviews
2nd in the Hex Hall Series
Young Adult Fiction

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?
Opinion:

OMG! How annoying is it when a book ends on a cliff-hanger? This entire series so far has ended on a huge cliff-hanger; basically in the middle of a sentence type cliff-hanger. I didn’t mind it in the first because I had it waiting on my bookshelf ready for me to read.

Team Cal here! I’m not sure how anyone is team Archer. I just don’t get the appeal.  I get it on a writing level for reasons I can’t discuss as it’s spoilery, but not on a reader level. He has repeatedly deceived everyone including Sophie. I don’t understand trusting him now.

Not to mention the steaminess of Cal. He rescues her again and again even when she has betrayed him. His magical talents would come in so handy as a husband as well. He could calm her down with a wave of his hand.

Jenna isn’t as present in this book and the new friends are generally creepy and not really there, so on a secondary character front this isn’t the strongest book. She spends more time with her uptight father than anyone that’s interesting.

Do you remember Maxwell from “The Nanny”, well that’s her father. The best scene with her father thus far is the one with the mirrors. I do expect him to much more dynamic in the next book.

While it ended in a cliff-hanger it also gave us so much foreshadowing that we get the gist of what the next book is going to be about. And it’s gonna be beyond amazing. So much betrayal from all sides, and hopefully some killing for some evil “witches”.

The plot didn’t slow down from page one. There was plenty of action balanced with great character development within Sophie.

This is one of those OMFG how good can one book be! The only drawback on this book is the cliffhanger.  Okay, I’ll shut-up now, but I could keep talking for ever about this one.

  1. Awww, I love Archer but I do have a soft spot for Cal. He's absolutely lovely and it was really tempting to root for him. Alas... ;)

    I'm still in a state of CAPSLOCK over that cliffhanger. I definitely need that third book ASAP!
