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, shape-shifters, 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?


My Thoughts:

Demonglass is the second book in the Hex Hall series, it start a while after the first book ends. We all remember that in the end of the last book Sophie decided to go through the removal which is a process to get rid of the supernatural power because she didn’t want to have to loss it and kill someone she love like her mother for example.

Of course, when her father heard about her decision … he finally decides to show up. When they met he told her he won’t allow her to go through the removals but she insists that she don’t want to be a monster … and seriously if I were in her place I will think a little bit, I mean it doesn’t have to be like that for her … she’s only quarter Demon she may never lose it and kill any one why does she have to go all the way and be such a negative person … anyway her father then suggests taking Sophie back to his house and she wants to bring her best friend Jenna [a vampire] with her. Her dad agrees and he also suggest to take Cal as well ... and why cal that what any one will think right … I mean it not just me … anyway you will have to read the book to find this out. 

However, when the three of them left the school Sophie gets a strange feeling that all 3 of them will not be coming back … The three of them spent the next few months  in the mansion aka Thorne Abbey. There where Sophie discovered just how much strong she is and all about her secret and heritage.

Also she meets new people or friends should I say unstable friends to be accurate … and for her surprise these friends are just like her Demons … which mean that there are someone out there are creating demons but why and for what this is what this book is really about … and while she at it she finds out that she can’t trust anyone and start to suspects her father co-worker … also she start to figure out who Archer really is.

Overall, I really loved Demonglass even more than Hex Hall but the fact that it ends with such a cliffhanger I mean it is not like we can run to the bookshop and find the next book of this series displayed … I really look forward for the third book Spell bound which will be release in [March 13th , 2012]  :D
