Demonglass by Racehl 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, 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 LOVE THIS SERIES SO MUCH!!!!!!! ha ha sorry for the slight freak out but oh my goodness I love it.
I think the main reason I love these books is because I love Sophie. She's so sarcastic, fun, and slightly ditsy at times but not in the way that makes you go "oh my gosh shut up you stupid girl!" I love that Sophie can make the scary situations she gets into funny, but shes also a great thinker. I think i have a fictional girl-crush on Sophie. Archer and Sophie well, I've loved them since Hex Hall and I was glad we got to see more of him in this book (although what he's doing I'm not going to say). A nice surprise in this book though were the characters of Cal and Sophie's dad. They were both talked about in Hex Hall but we really got to know them in Demonglass, I really hope to see more of them in the next book.
I love the rhythm of this series.Hawkins spends exactly the right amount of time describing the things you want to hear about and making the parts the could be boring more interesting. The humor in this book is amazing. I laughed out loud multiple times.
Not sure if I can wait until 2012 for the sequel, ahh please come soon!
