Demonglass (Hex Hall #2) by Rachel Hawkins

Oh my... what an amazing book! Be careful, don't start reading this one unless you already have Spell Bound. Trust me.

In Demonglass we follow Sophie to her trip in London the summer right after everything in the first book happened. Accompanied by her best friend, the vampire, Jenna and her betrothal Cal, as we soon discover, Sophie visits Thorne Abbey, the place where her father lives and her Grandmother Alice was turned into a demon. But what she finds there is even more surprising than she expected, there are other two demon-kids living in Thorne Abbey along with few of the Councils members. Sophie will try to find as much as she can about the two other demons, her father, the history behind Alice's transformation and of course herself, all the while running from the Eye and discovering who is actually raising all these demons.

This book was AMAZING. I was a little sad that it wouldn't take place at Hex Hall, I really loved that school, but still it was amazing. Everything I was expecting, action, drama, sarcasm and a lot of surprises, both good and bad along the way. After reading halfway through the book I couldn't stop there was so much going on, so many new discoveries and secrets revealed and so much yet to be discovered.

As always I loved Sophie and her sarcasm, this girl had me laughing every other sentence. And Archer, oh Archer, how much I missed you! I was really glad he was back. All the moments he spend with Sophie were simply magical.

I can't really say anything else about this book cause I am afraid I would just start posting spoilers. I mean... I am still socked from the ending. Massive CLIFFHANGER. You have been warned!

  1. Thanks for the post and keeping spoilers off your page. I tweeted, it looked too good not to. :-)

  2. I read Hex Hall last fall and still haven't read this, I was putting it off because of the cliffhanger and now I haven't found the time to pick this series back up even though I want to find out more about Archer!

  3. Like Heidi, I read Hex Hall ages ago and have yet to read this one, I think I was waiting for more of the books to be released before reading them again. I know I will need to re-read Hex Hall, there is so much I have forgotten!

    Great review!

  4. Great review Veronica. I totally agree with you. I love Sophie and Archer, they are awesome together.
