Review: 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?

I think this one may have had it all.

Annoying Cliffhanger: Check

I’m so glad that we finally got to meet Sophie’s dad, James. I mean he just seems awesome.

There are some new characters including Daisy, Nick and Lara, who just happened to be Mrs Casnoff’s sister, now I can tell you that I was just as shocked as Sophie.

Although Lara seems nice, she wasn’t all she made out to be, but come on I should have known that it was just too obvious, she just seemed was too nice.

Cal wasn’t the quite person we were used to and there was a shock there too, including the ending which was one of those OMG moments. He kind of made up when Archer, swoon, wasn’t in the book but I still missed him terribly maybe even as much of Sophie.

Jenna even had a shock announcement to make to Sophie. We also got to meet her girlfriend, which to be quite honest I nearly forgot existed but never mind she did seem alright from what we got from Rachel.

I didn’t mention Elodie, now I love this character and was so happy when she may have appeared in the book, but I’m not going to tell you that you want to know READ THE BOOK, trust me on that.

This was one of those books that I couldn’t put down. Can’t wait till the next one it just seems so far away.
