Reading Level: Young Adult

Sophie Mercer thought she was a witch. That was the whole reason she was sent to Hex Hall, a reform school for delinquent Prodigium (a.k.a. witches, shapeshifters, and faeries). But then she discovered her family secret, and the fact 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 either destroy her powers for good-or kill her.
But once Sophie arrives, she makes a shocking discovery. Her new housemates? They're demons too. Meaning,
someone is raising demons 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?

The first thing I have to say about Demonglass is, what an ending. Like, total cliffhanger of the worst AND best kind. I mean, love it but hate that I have to wait! UGH! haha. I'm definitely going to be die before the next book comes out. I literally can not wait to read it! Demonglass picks up right where Hex Hall left off.

Demonglass is the continuing story of Sophie Mercer. She was a student at Hecate but finds herself rushed off to live in England with her dad. This book was just as amazing as the first one and 9 times out of 10, that's almost impossible to do. Hex Hall was one of my favorite reads of 2011. It is full of action and romance and all things that make books amazing. Demonglass does not disappoint! I found myself loving it as much as the first one!

I don't want to say too much about 'Demonglass' especially if some of you haven't read 'Hex Hall' yet. But if you haven't, you need to! It's amazing!! I usually try to read my books in the order I buy/receive them but for this one, I couldn't wait. I knew how much I loved the first one which is what made me grab it right away! I am anxiously awaiting book 3 in the 'Hex Hall' series, if that cliffhanger doesn't do me in first! Definitely, definitely check out this series, it's amazing!!

  1. Hearing lots of good things about this one! Read Hex Hall a few months ago and bought Demonglass at the awesome sale price on Amazon as well! But I keep hearing about the killer cliffhanger so I keep putting it off! I've read too many killer cliffhangers recently and need to save some sanity for myself! Will definitely read this before Spellbound--the third book! Loved your review, makes me want to read it now, but am holding off like I said to maintain some sanity due to cliffhangers!
