Book Review: Demonglass by Rachel 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?" Goodreads summary

I enjoyed Demonglass as much as I enjoyed Hex Hall, the only reason I gave it four instead of five stars is that the storyline isn't completely new to me anymore, but the book was still really really good. 

The story picks up a few months after the first book and spoiler alert: England, jeeeeey! That's all I'm going to say about that. In this books Sophie has to deal with her origins and a love interest who is a part of the group set out to kill her kind, isn't that lovely?
I love how I can't guess what's going to happen in these books, they are full of surprise and humor. And really hard to put down! All who are into YA paranormal should give these books a go, as well as you who think you're not into this spiel; you might just change your mind. 

My favorite quote from the book:
"After a moment we started talking about the trip again, and I made Jenna laugh by wondering aloud if there was such a thing as vampire high tea. "And when you ask for Earl Grey, you actually get Earl Grey," I summed up, sending Jenna into another fit of giggles."
