Book Review: Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins

Hard Back: Demonglass
Author: Rachel Hawkins
Pages: 368
Publisher: Hyperion Book CH
Release Date: March 1, 2011
Genre: Young Adult/Paranormal Romance

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? {Goodreads}

Oh Rachel Hawkins you sure know how to keep my heart racing. How could you just end this book in the manner that you did? You are starting down the path of another fave YA author of mine with your cliff hangers, ahem, Cassandra Clare. You are breaking my heart. Lol. Okay, let’s get to it.

FANCYTASTIC… Oh man. First off, one complaint. Not enough Archer. Other than that, no real complaints. We pick up in Demonglass with a nice little focus on the lovely and mysterious warlock, Cal. Yum. I really enjoy that Rachel just doesn’t hold back and you are thrown a few curve balls in the early chapters of the book.  We know that Sophie is determined to get over to London to go through the removal process, that should probably be capitalized. Oh well. Jenna is allowed to spend the summer with her, including … yep you guessed  correctly, the studly Cal is present on this trip as well. When the four arrive at their destination Sophie realizes there is some major shiz going down. She is introduced to two other demon children. My first instinct was Addams Family, Wednesday Addams more appropriately. To make matters worth, Archer is supposedly is being cited in London and did I mention we have one super charged love triangle. Is anyone else torn between Cal and Archer? I know I am. To sum up this book it was action packed and I just can’t get enough of Sophie’s sense of humor. Spell Bound is sure to be a HUGE success. I cannot wait to see where this story is going to go. Thank you Rachel for writing this one of a kind series.
