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?
It’s not often a second book is so good, but Demonglass managed to pull it off!! I think I said it already often enough but I somehow loved stories that involve boarding schools and such. But what makes this series stand out is the wonderful tone the characters have.
Sophie is one tough and sarcastic main character and I LOVE her snarkiness above everything else. But still, she’s just a young girl trying hard to come to terms with her being a demon and hunted by her first crush Archer!
The book starts some time after the events of Hex Hall and Sophie is still determined to get through the “Removal” to get rid of her Demon Magic. Her father invites her and Jenna (her Vampire girl friend) to spend the summer with him in England. To make things even more complicated he also invites Cal along – who I honestly and seriously forgot as a character from the first book. Yet, here in Demonglass he has a great role and I absolutely loved getting to know him better!
Of course, there is still Archer lingering in Sophies thoughts and although she knows he’s a member of The Eye she can’t forget this one kiss their shared. Also, he’s last seen in England – which might spice things up if the’d run into each other.
Loved the building relationship with her Dad and as I said above Cal showed to be a wonderful character and certainly can’t be missed in here. The book is really faces paced and there is a lot happening. you are never bored. Plus, mysteries over mysteries like: Who are Sophies new Demon friends that seem really weird although everyone is telling her they are good people?
But the biggest question remains what’s up with Archer and The Eye!
Absolutely horrible in a *I-can’t-believe-this-book-ends-here* way, I was seriously turning back and forth in denial that this is the way Demonglass ends. Now, a horrible wait for the next books comes.. But still, this series is wonderful, with captivating story lines and awesome characters!
It full deserves a truly bewitched raring here. Lot’s of new and captivating story lines will leave you on edge and lets you turning the pages faster and faster! But the best thing about this book for me are the characters and especially Sophie! I absolutely LOVE her sarcasm but still sometimes she’s so vulnerable although she tries to be so brave.
So if you haven’t start the series yet and love a good paranormal, boarding school, lovely romance mixed novel with great characters, then.. go ahead and pick up this series!!
