Title: Demonglass (Hex Hal #2)
Author: Racher Hawkins
Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult
Hyperion, 359 pages

Warning: Spoiler alert for those who haven't reading the first book yet.

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? (goodreads)


After causing too many problems in her first semester in Hex Hall, Sophie Mercer was visited by both of parents. This was the first time she met her father and her parents saw each other again since almost 16 years. James Atherthon, Sophie's father decided to bring her daughter to London and let her spend her summer holiday there. But the most of all it was because Archer Cross was a n Eye and Sophie had turned out that she was a demon.

Like in the first book, as a reader we follow the story from Sophie's point of view. And that's good to be made such a way, in order to make readers as innocent as Sophie. She will take us to some new information and knowledge about Hex Hall, the Council, and something really secret.

Kind of shock about some new information, Sophie's willing to destroy her power was stronger than before. She felt remorse for demolition that her (as a demon) power made. But something happened fast: two kids who inhabited with the council attacked its building. Thus Sophie rethought about the removal and tried to help recover the situation. Again, when she started helping, her father was caught by the council itself and finally Sophie turned out who was the real villain behind the scene.

The second book contains more actions the the first one. It is amusing and meets my expectation. A fantasy novel with magic specialist like this should have action in it, right?

OK, 3.5 stars for this book. :)
