Three years ago, Sophie Mercer discovered that she was a witch. It's gotten her into a few scrapes. Her non-gifted mother has been as supportive as possible, consulting Sophie's estranged father—an elusive European warlock—only when necessary. But when Sophie attracts too much human attention for a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, it's her dad who decides her punishment: exile to Hex Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, faeries, and shapeshifters.

By the end of her first day among fellow freak-teens, Sophie has quite a scorecard: three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a futile crush on a gorgeous warlock, a creepy tag-along ghost, and a new roommate who happens to be the most hated person and only vampire student on campus. Worse, Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her only friend is the number-one suspect.

As a series of blood-curdling mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her.


My Thoughts

This book is phenomenal. Usually, for me, first books in any series are the best, becasue it brings you the timeline and you meet all the characters. This was not the exception, I was hooked from the start; the characters and the plot are very well presented. This author is very good at keeping secrets because I never expected that end at all, but it was very successful.

I loved the Characters, especially Sophie. Mainly because she wasn't the typical girl who does nothing and is afraid of everything (The Bella Swan effect), this girl was strong, has courage, at all, she was a worthy heroine; she didn't stand by waitting to be recued, she faced what had to be faced.

Sophie Mercer thought she was a witch. That was the whole reason she was sent to Hex Hall, a reform school for delinquent Prodigium (a.k.a. witches, shape-shifters, and faeries). But then she discovered the family secret, and the fact 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 either destroy her powers for good-or kill her.

But once Sophie arrives, she makes a shocking discovery. Her new housemates? They're demons too. Meaning, someone is raising demons 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
I, honestly, don't understand the fact that this book is called Demonglass, since that sword was presented in the previous book and has no relevance in this; I remember that it was only mentioned because Soph has the mark from used it before, so for me the title has nothing to do with the plot of this book at all. But anyway, now we left Hecate Hall to go to where it all started, she meets her father and it begin to look like a real family relationship (which I think is too hasty, because he has spent her entire life away from her).

I liked this book so much as the previous one; Soph is still the girl I want her to be, no fears, strong and independant; but I waited too much for Archer to appear (wich doesn't seem fair to me).

I'm intrigued about the conspiracy and everything that comes with it, in addition to the origin of her mother; which I already has my suspicious. And now the tangle of her fiance. All this leaves me on edge, I wish the next book so badly.
