Demon Glass by: Rachel Hawkins
Syonpsis: 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?
Thoughts: HOLY HELL WEASEL that was fan-freaking-tastic!! Demon Glass is even better than Hex Hall and the ending will leave your mouth hanging open and desperately needing the third book.
***Don't read if you haven't read Hex Hall***
Demon Glass picks up just where Hex Hall left off. Sophie is a demon and her dad is the only other one... Something the people she loved neglected to tell her. Archer still hasn't been heard from, but Sophie shouldn't care, right? So when her father decides to take her and her friends, Jenna and Cal, to London she accepts. Sophie figures she can kill a few birds with one stone... Find out about her past, bond with her dad, and go through the removal to keep everyone safe. In London her trouble doesn't stop though. Turns out there are two more demons kids and someone is raising more. As the eye starts to get stronger and more problems start to reveal, Sophie finds herself in a whole new world of trouble. Oh yeah, and add Archer to that mix... It could only mean one kick ass story.
Demon Glass was freaken amazing. This has easily become one of my favorite series. I LOVE Sophie. I LOVE Archer. I LOVE Cal. I LOVE Jenna. And I even love her dad, he plays a fantastic role. All the characters grow in Demon Glass and become even stronger. Yet again, there are twists that are just like "UH WOW!" + a forbidden love + suspense... It's just a great book. Rachel Hawkins doesn't over do anything for me, the love is perfect, the friendships are perfect, the family is awesome, and the trouble is awesome hah!
If you read Hex Hall you HAVE to read Demon Glass... It's even better! Needless to say I am dying for the third book. I cannot wait!!! :)
