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?

This book pretty much blew my face off it was so good!!! Ahhhh!

First of all, I love Archer Cross. The way he first shows up in this book had me acting a darn fool while I was reading it. He is just perfectly great. And Sophie is one of my favorite characters to read in any book. There are things that she says that I literally was laughing and looking around for someone to share in the hilarity.

I was OMG-ing for most of this book, and I am anxiously awaiting the next one because the end of this one was just . . . well, it was great. But now I need to know what happens!

If you haven't read this series yet, you are missing out!
