I finished this book a couple days ago and totally forgot to put up my review. Anyway…I picked this book up pretty cheap at Half-Price Books. Here’s the Goodreads summary.
“Three years ago, Sophie Mercer discovered that she was a witch. It’s gotten her into a few scrapes. Her non-gifted mother has been as supportive as possible, consulting Sophie’s estranged father–an elusive European warlock–only when necessary. But when Sophie attracts too much human attention for a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, it’s her dad who decides her punishment: exile to Hex Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, faeries, and shapeshifters.
By the end of her first day among fellow freak-teens, Sophie has quite a scorecard: three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a futile crush on a gorgeous warlock, a creepy tagalong ghost, and a new roommate who happens to be the most hated person and only vampire student on campus. Worse, Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her only friend is the number-one suspect.
As a series of blood-curdling mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her.”
I really liked this book. I liked the paranormal world that Hawkins created and the differences between all of the Prodigium. It was interesting to see the differences, to her, between witches, weres, shifters, faeries, vampires, and demons. Not to mention how they interact with one another.
The story, featuring a teenager named Sophie, was interesting. I liked the idea of Hex Hall and how it’s the school for the “bad” kids. I’m curious to see where the story goes and how Hawkins will continue Sophie’s journey of self-discovery.
