Sophie Mercer thought she was a witch.For some reason I always have issues with the second book in a series. Demonglass is the exception to that rule... this book was AHHHH-Mazing! Oh yes, for those of you who have already met Sophie Mercer then you know she is not merely a witch, but something much more powerful. The story picks up right after Hex Hall ends and you know how that ended. Sophie waits for her father, hating what she is and looking for answers. She remains the bright, yet stubborn girl we have all come to know and love. Her witty-ness and sarcasm are still her defining qualities. I especially loved her inner dialogues and her sarcastic comments... I mean really, the girl is hilarious. Especially when it comes to her father and their moments of father/daughter bonding.
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? [via GoodReads]
In Demonglass you meet some new characters and get to better know some of the one's you 've already met. Sophie's dad being one of them. You also learn more of Jenna (Sophie's vamp-BFF) as well as Cal (the groundskeeper at Hex Hall). The plot is just as riveting as the first - with The Eye out to get her and Archer back in the picture, you can just imagine how riveted I was (wink-wink).
Demonglass has so many twists and turns it will leave you reeling. There's magic, danger, suspense and (ahem) a love triangle that will have you flying through its pages. The mystery and suspense will have you on your toes... I, for one, was never able to figure it out - and that cliffhanger ending.... WOW! Nothing is as it seems and I cannot wait to have my many questions answered. "Write-On Ms. Hawkins!" I will be
inpatiently waiting for Hex Hall #3.
