Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins
Publisher: Hyperion Books CH
Publication Date: March 1, 2011
Page Count:368

Description from Goodreads:

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?

When I finished Demonglass the only thing I could think was "OMG it can't be over!". I just sat there staring at it like more pages would appear if I wanted it bad enough...too bad that isn't how it works! 

 Sophie's dad finally shows up at Hex Hall and convinces her, along with Jenna and Cal, to spend the summer with him in England before she decides if she really wants to go through with the Removal. Once there she finds out there are other demons and her and her dad set out trying to find who has transformed the teens and why. Archer shows up and Sophie is still drawn to him and can't seem to stay away even though she knows they can't and shouldn't be together. There are some major revelations and some big secrets exposed in this book. Demonglass is the perfect blend of mystery, action, and romance and ends on a total cliffhanger!! I almost can't stand that the next book in the series won't be coming out til sometime in 2012! 

Definitely read this book!!


  1. Sounds like quite the ride-- I'll go see if my library has it! Your blog is inspiring me to read more books; I think they've definitely fallen second to the vast addictiveness of the internet over the past few years : (

  2. April, the first book is Hex Hall, make sure you read it first or Demonglass won't make too much sense!
