Book Review: Demonglass

Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins
Check it out here!
Description: After learning that she is capable of dangerous magic, Sophie Mercer goes to England with her father, friend Jenna, and Cal hoping to have her powers removed, but soon she learns that she is being hunted by the Eye-- and haunted by Elodie.

Review: Just like Hex Hall, Demonglass is fast paced and action packed - it made for a very quick and fun reading experience. Demonglass's plot is just complex enough to keep you guessing but not so convoluted that you spend hours trying to figure out the folklore and who’s who.

In Demonglass the reader gets to know a different part of Sophie’s - her heritage and family life are front and center. She finally has a chance to get to know her seriously absentee father. He actually comes across as likable, and his relationship with Sophie is very endearing. I liked breaking out of Hex Hall and seeing a different part of her world. I was also glad to have Jenna and Cal along. There were some fantastic and interesting surprises from Cal, and Jenna continued to be a delightful sidekick and friend.

Personally, I’m not a huge fan of Archer, Sophie's love interest; he's so smug and self-righteous, but he’s around too and his and Sophie’s relationship is exactly how it was in Hex Hall - playful, fun, passionate and full of complications. I’m really looking forward to seeing how it plays out, especially with the twists in Demonglass.

Demonglass lived up to all of my expectations - it was just as good as Hex Hall, but be forewarned, this book ends on a major cliffhanger! It's not just unfinished business, but "Oh my God, someone might be dead"!

Bottom line: this is definitely a series worth reading if you’re a paranormal fan. It's fun, quirky, and delightful.
