April's review of 'Demonglass' by Rachel Hawkins

Demonglass (Hex Hall #2) by Rachel Hawkins
Publication Date: March 22, 2011
Publisher:  Hyperion Books
Number of Pages: 368
Format: Hardback
Buy: Amazon | Barnes and Noble
Description:  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?

Sophie is determined to go through the removal to get rid of her powers. Too bad that nobody is on her side. Summer is approaching, and her dad has come up with a deal. Sophie gets to spend the summer in the England countryside with her dad. If Sophie still wants to go through the removal process when summer is over she can. Sophie puts in the deal that Jenna has to come, and is surprise to find out that Cal is also coming. And not only is she spending the summer with him, but they are betrothal to each other. The surprises doesn't stop there. When they finally get to their new summer home, Sophie is more shock to see that there are two demon teenagers there. 

Even though her crush, Archer, is working with the Eye, and would kill her in a minute, she just can't get over him. And secretly hopes that she runs into him since there's been sightings of him in London. In the first book I was all for Team Archer. But his involvement in the Eye, well I couldn't see any happy endings for these two. And I think Sophie is very stupid for still being in love with a guy that try to kill her. I fell in love with Cal in this book. 

What a book without a problem? Someone is raising demons. The reveal who is raising them will make your jaw drop. Nonetheless this book was amazing. 

Rating: 5/5
