Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins
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?
Why did I pick this?
It’s pretty obvious. I read the first one and could NOT wait to read the next. The first one I fell in love with right away. I love the covers of all these novels. (of course)
Soooo….what did I think?
If you’ve read and like the first book you’ll absolutely DIE in this one. I freaking LOVED it! Again! Rachel Hawkins did another amazing job with this series.
This book completely keeps you guessing. I had no clue what was going to happen next. I knew the whole book was drawing me in and it seemed like I could not read fast enough. I didn’t want the book to end. Especially the way it did. I felt like I was running towards this HUGE ending to see what happened next….then toppled over the edge of one of the biggest cliffhangers…..ever.
I am so thankful that I only have to wait two months for the next one to come out. If I had to wait let’s say 6 months….I would have been pulling my hair out.
Archer fans and Cal fans will be extremely satisfied in this book. I know I was.
I loved how Sophie is growing through out these novels. She learns new things and starts acting more grown up. Still have the sarcasm which I love. I couldn’t live without some Sophie sarcasm.
Jenna is still one of my most favorite characters and the relationship that she has with Sophie is so precious. They are the perfect duo.
One of the other best parts of this book was the blossoming relationship between Sophie and her Dad. It was so awesome to read/watch. Sophie thought her father didn’t care when in truth it’s the exact opposite.
This series is quickly becoming a personal favorite of mine. I love every single character in these books. Sophie especially. She can always make me laugh. Especially when she interacts with Archer. Those are some of the best lines in the book.
These books are such a great, fun read. I can’t wait to see what happens in the last one. It all comes down to this last moment! *bites nails*
On an honest note….
I know I ramble and I repeat a lot. But these books are seriously becoming a favorite for me. I love books that can make you laugh, cringe, gasp, and melt all at once. These are those books! If you haven’t read them yet, I suggest you do.
The books are quick read but so very worth it!
Yay for quote time!! 🙂
As I stomped across school grounds, all I could see was Cal sitting with my dad in some manly room with leather chairs and dead animals on the wall, chomping on cigars as Dad formally signed me away to him. They probably even high-fived. Okay, so it’s not like either of them are exactly the cigar-and-high-fives type, but still.
“Wow, Cal,” I said feeling a little bit like myself for the first time since I’d walked into this crazy house. “You will be able to have some awesome slumber parties in here. All the other girls are gonna be so jealous.”
My brain was spinning. Demons, missing students…Why had my life suddenly become Nancy Drew mystery from hell?
Go get the books!!! 🙂
