Review: Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins

Book two in the Hex Hall series

About Demonglass

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?

This book continues almost where Hex Hall left off.
I like how we got a layer deeper into the characters and we get to know them a little better.
There’s the whole issue with Chloe’s dad and there’s a love triangle between Sophie , Cal and Archer.
The book is a little slow in the middle but I didn’t feel it because of all the things that were going on at other times in the book.
Sophie must now juggle with some very hard decisions about herself and her future.
She struggles with her emotions and doing the right thins. She has a difficult time finding out who to trust and what the whole truth is.
Demonglass was for me even better than Hex Hall, it’s even more intense and I felt that I’m as a reader got answers to a lot of my questions from book one but I then got a whole bunch of new questions that hopefully get’s answered in the next book.
The ending, what can I say. There we have a cliff-hanger and a big one.
I’m a fan of this series and I will have a hard time waiting for the next book. I look forward to the release.
I give Demonglass 5 out of 5.

I'm so glad you enjoyed this book! I LOVE the Hex Hall series and thought Demonglass was even better than Hex Hall! The "triple Hex" (third book) is the book I'm looking forward to most in 2012. Well... so far anyway!
