OK…this is the second in a trilogy I began earlier this year. I read the first book in the series, Hex Hall, back in February. You can read my review of that book here. So, since I was trying to fill up the couple weeks between finishing the Fever series and when J.K. Rowling’s new book, The Casual Vacancy, comes out, I decided to get to the rest of this series since my co-worker said she’d loan them to me. Here’s the Goodreads summary of this book.
“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?”
I liked this book. I think it was a great continuation of the story and I’m pretty interested in seeing where the author takes it.
I liked seeing how Sophie is learning how to better control her powers and really kick ass with them. I really liked that we finally met Sophie’s father.
The only thing I didn’t like was the ending! And that’s only because I don’t own the next book and couldn’t start it right away. It was definitely a cliffhanger!
