Waiting on Wednesday: Demonglass (Hex Hall #2) by Rachel Hawkins

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming releases we're anxiously awaiting!

Coming March 1, 2011!


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?


My thoughts: The cover art for this was released just last week. Isn't it stunning? I love it! I read Hex Hall this past summer (I WILL find a good day to post the review soon. Swear.) and really enjoyed it! It was such a fun read and it definitely kept me turning the pages! There were some major twists at the end that I just don't know what to make of, so I cannot wait for the sequel - I hope it answers some of my many questions.  I love that Sophie's a demon. It's the other side of the coin from what we usually see. Really, it all comes down to choices, doesn't it? To quote a wise old wizard: "It is our choices, Harry, that show us who we truly are, far more than our abilities." I don't think Sophie could ever be evil, and I don't want her to lose her powers...but it's definitely a tricky line to walk. I can't wait to see what happens with Archer! I really loved him and I'm wary of what was really going on toward the end of book one. Hurry up and get here, March 2011!
