Demonglass (A Hex Hall Novel)
By Rachel Hawkins
359 pages
Book 2

Summary: Turned out that Sophie isn’t a witch, she’s actually a demon, and there is a good chance she could kill someone if her powers get out of hand. In order to get control of her powers, Sophie, Jenna and Cal head to England to live with Sophie’s dad and the council. However, it looks like things are about to get dangerous, because Sophie isn’t the only demon there...which means someone is raising them to fight.

Review: Demonglass was a good sequel to Hex Hall. The writing was still fluid and fast-paced and the characters charming. Readers get a bit more back story in Demonglass as it sets the stage for the third book. Having a greater context to the world that Sophie lives in added more depth to her as a character. She was still the witty and sarcastic girl readers loved, but with a little bit more substance. While there wasn’t as much humour or action in this novel, there were still quite a few plot twists to captivate readers. A good second book that will no doubt leave readers wanting more.

I still have to read Demonglass but I'm glad to hear there was more growth in Soohie's character in the novel! :)
