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?
I finally was able to get this book. After having spent the entire day yesterday working on my English essay, I decided to give myself a well-deserved break by going to Indigo. What did I find? THIS BOOK! I just had to buy it then. After all, I really wanted to read it. I ended up starting it in the Metro, and I wasn’t able to put it down until I had read it all, which means at midnight (Which was a bad idea, as I had gym class this morning. I’m so dead…)
The story is good, funny and extremely entertaining. There is everything you need to create an entertaining book. I laugh so much while reading it, I must have look really crazy in the Metro. Oh well, it was worth it. The ending is honestly killing me, because I really want to know what will happen! I don’t want to say too much, because I don’t want to give anything away, but I simply can say that I’ve loved it.
You finally get to know the father of Sophie. He as the same kind of sarcastic and witty comments Sophie has, which I love. What can I say about Sophie? I love her more and more every time. She is growing as a character, but what I really like about her is her personality and her comments. She just makes me laugh. Cal seems a little strange to me. I can’t seem to decide if I like him or not. Jenna is the best friend any girl could ask for. Finally, Archer is just too awesome. He’s a bad ass, he is sexy, and he is nicely sarcastic. What more can you ask for?
Hawkins just knows how to make me laugh. It was the perfect book for me to read, after having spent the entire day working on a stupid essay. It just made me happy, distracted me, and entertained me.
All I can say is that I loved it. 10/10!
