Description

Sophie Mercer thought she was a witch, which was why she was sent to Hex Hall, a reform school for delinquent Prodigium (a.k.a. witches, shapeshifters, and fairies). But that was before she discovered she was a demon, and her hot crush, Archer Cross, was an agent for The Eye, a group bent on wiping her kind off the face of the earth. What's worse, Sophie has powers that threaten the lives of everyone she loves. Which is why she decides to go to London for the Removal, a risky procedure that will either destroy her powers forever-or kill her. But once Sophie arrives, she makes a shocking discovery: someone is raising new demons in secret and planning to use their powers to destroy the world. 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?

    Not sure what I was thinking reading another YA series this one was a pretty quick read though and entertaining for a long drive
  • (5/5)
    Rachel Hawkins first book in this series Hex Hall was enjoyable and a great read but the second book Demonglass was absolutely incredible! I had read a few pages of it yesterday and then I woke up early, 6:30AM and decided to get some read time in before I started my day. Once started I couldn't put it down and kept reading till done.Boy, it has a HUGE cliffhanger at the end and now I have to start the next book in the series! Thank goodness I bought it for my daughter so I can go and get it started. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves a good paranormal type series!

    I flew through this book. When we come in we are about 6 months after the events in Hex Hall. Sophie is still at the school, and while she has somewhat come to terms with everything that happened, she is determined to go through the Removal. The Removal will remove her powers and could possibly kill her, but it is something she feels that she must do in order to protect those around her. After 6 months of waiting her father finally shows up on the day that she is thrown into the lake "swamp" and must pretend to drown and then use her powers to save herself. Only, no one told Sophie that a demon could not escape the pond...
    At first her father seems kinda uptight, but I guess as head of the Council, he should be.. We soon get a glimpse of just where Sophie got her sarcasm from. Her mother, father and the headmistress of the school are all trying to talk Sophie out of going through with the Removal, and with good reason; who really wants to see their child die?
    Sophie's father makes her a deal, spend the summer with him in London and then if she still wants to go through with the removal he will allow it. Sophie insists that her best friend Jenna; the vampire, be allowed to go too. Her father agrees and then adds that Cal; the groundskeeper, will be joining them. Sophie then learns that while she has been at Hex Hall with Cal, she has been his betrothed. And then to find out that he knew all along, upsets her. Sophie is still hung up on Archer, even though she pretends not to be.
    As everyone sets off to London, Sophie has a feeling in the pit of her stomach that they will never return to Hex Hall. Once arriving in London and finally getting to where they will be staying, Sophie realizes that there are two more demons, and they are staying with the Council; well what is left of them.
    The book didn't go as fast, nor where there as many twists and turns as in the first, but with Archer making an appearance a few chapters in, the story line picked up. They Eye "hunters" are actively hunting Sophie, as she is heir apparent to the Head of the Council and really no one wants a demon to be in charge. But Archer saves her, so you can tell that maybe he still feels something for her. The story pretty much revolves around finding out who made the two demons, Nick and Daisy, that are at Council Headquarters and Sophie getting back in with Archer.
    There are a few fights, nothing big and then at the end there is a major infiltration of the Council, and we learn just who has been making the demons. When the story closes, Sophie is powerless thanks to the Council, her father and Archer are trapped in the cells below the Abbey and she is told to go to the Brannick's ( also hunters).
    I was disappointed in the ending and believe that the story could have went a little farther, so that we weren't left with so many questions. I can't wait till the third book is released so I can find out exactly what happens next.

    Total cliffhanger!
  • (3/5)
    A fun and quick read. Demonglass suffers a little number two syndrome- clearly a bridge between book one and book three of a trilogy, I didn't feel like anything was resolved and it was a little frustrating to end on such a cliffhanger. Quite a few new characters introduced, but we don't get to know them completely. Regardless, it has been years since I read Hex Hall, and it was no problem diving back into Sophie's world, and good thing I waited- now I have Spellbound to start reading immediately!
  • (3/5)
    While I realize that the purpose of a cliffhanger ending is to get you to read the authors next book, I would appreciate a little more closer then this author seems to want to provide. The book was slow moving and I couldn't really get into it the way I did the first one. There are too many questions left unanswered at the end, and i'm not sure I will bother reading the next book to get them.
  • (4/5)
    A great read. I've found that just about every trilogy has a bit of a sophomore slump in the second book, but I enjoyed this one a lot. Fast paced, lots of action and such great characters! And such wonderful snark! Witty dialog can redeem a so-so book, but when you have a great story *and* witty dialog, it's a joy to read and I don't want to put it down.

    Luckily, my impulse book buying habits had me buying both this book and the third one at the same time. It's not a *major* cliffhanger, but it's not a small one, and I was thrilled that I could close this book and immediately pick up the third and keep on reading.
  • (5/5)
    Much more exciting than part 1. Full of non-stop action, two loves, despair, agony and all the stuff that create teen angst, with a dash of magic. An excellent read.
  • (4/5)
    Yet another great book.. I think I actually enjoyed it a teensy bit more than Hex Hall; however, I did not laugh as much.

    This book continues where the first left off with Sophie deciding to go through the Removal after she finds out she's not actually a witch, but a demon, and a very powerful one at that. She flies to England with Cal (Love Cal-Archer can go away) and Jenna to meet her dad and spend some quality time with her as he is determined to change her mind about going through the Removal. While in England she finds out she's betrothed, she meets other demons, and she comes face to face with Archer again.


    Once again, another cliff-hanger ending and I'm sitting here pulling my hair out. Can't wait till the 3rd installment is published. :)

  • (5/5)
    Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins is the sequel to Hex Hall. Sophie has gone to England to have the Council remove her powers. Doing so, means, being with her estranged father.Cal and Archer are there too, to be the trilogy's love triangle. While Archer is the sexy, bad boy, Cal is the quietly, loyal type. Frankly, they're both wrong for her and potentially dangerous to Sophie and the Council.While Sophie is adjusting to life in the English countryside, she learns more about the battle brewing. She also learns that she's not alone and that fact opens up a can of worms.Although I'm not the target audience, I did thoroughly enjoy the second book. Although there's a love triangle, the book mostly avoids the usual pitfalls of these paranormal YA novels.

    I loved it! Good suspensful ending!
  • (5/5)
    I'm thinking I should have had Spellbound ready to go immediately. The end of this book was total "WTFery," in the words of Liz.

    Sophie can't seem to stay away from trouble. It finds her everywhere, even on another continent. It's great seeing her dad. They are a lot alike. Some secrets are let out regarding Cal. He's such a sweet guy, but it seems like he's too sweet sometimes. I think Sophie needs to pay attentions to his actions because there may be something between them......

    Then we have Archer. I still haven't decided how I feel about him. He's charming and witty, except he works for the friggin' Eye. I guess 1st crushes are hard to get over. Still, you have to wonder what was real and what wasn't. It's hard to trust someone that betrayed you.

    Nick and Daisy are freaky little demons, literally. I don't get good vibes off them, and didn't the entire times. I spent half the time wanting to punch Nick for being a total jerk to Sophie.

    Jenna and Sophie's friendship is tested a few times. But what good is a BFF without fights every once in a while. They do learn a few things about the other. Things they lie to themselves about.

    I will be reading Spellbound soon because I have to know what the crap is going on. Secrets from the Council are spilled, but there are some things I'm still not certain of, and I want to know the answers.

    OMG. That ending. That plot twist. That love triangle. This is easily one of my favorite series ever. I cannot wait to read book 3. SO GOOD.
  • (3/5)
    Sophie now knows that she isn't a witch but a demon. After her confrontation with Alice, she has decided to go through the Removal but she can't until she spends the summer with her father, and head of The Council, in London. A summer with her father is the last thing she wants but with her best friend by her side, she agrees, if only because her father can prevent her from going through the Removal and he has promised her that if by the end of the summer she still wants to go through with the removal, he will let her. Only, once she arrives where they will be staying, she discovers that two of her new housemates are demons too. Someone is creating demons and their reasons cannot be good. Can Sophie discover who is behind raising the demons before a war breaks out?I enjoyed this novel. It was chop full of suspense, action, adventure, and, of course, drama. I do not usually like drama, at least the high school variety, I'm not sure why, just not usually my thing, other drama, sure through it my way, however, despite there being rather a lot of it in this novel this book was still very enjoyable. My main complaint would have to be the obliviousness of the main character, Sophie. However, given that this book is a teen fiction and it takes place in a high school, more or less, I cannot really say that it is truly a negative to the book. After all, I knew it was a high school book, it says so, so it was what I expected. All in all, the book is well written and the characters are very believable and realistic, all magic aside, and the plot was very enticing and action packed. I would recommend this book to anyone who can stomach high school drama and who enjoys coming of age, witchy, stories. I highly anticipate the third book in the series.

    When I finished reading Hex Hall, I couln't wait to start with Demonglass, although I was a little worried that it wouldn't be as good as Hex Hall.

    That worry was completely unfounded, I'm happy to report. In Demonglass, the story started in Hex Hall is taken to breathtaking new heights with more of the characters you've come to enjoy and grow fond of. The developing love triangle between Sophie, Archer and Cal is believable and I thoroughly enjoyed the lesbian relationship between Victoria and Jenna. MOAR LGBT RELATIONSHIPS IN YA PLOX.

    All in all a highly satisfying sequel adhhering closely to the "the same but different" rule. Hey, there's a reason why this rule is there: it works!

    Who would like this? If you liked Hex Hall, it's difficult to see how you wouldn't like Demonglass.
  • (3/5)
    Sophie is a teen demon with all the angst of a regular teen plus the stress of learning to control her powers. She is crushing on a witch killing witch and betrothed to a healer...This was the second in a series and I am looking forward to the third.

    *Review in progress*

    In some ways I enjoyed this more than the first one., and in others a bit less. To start, I liked the writing better. I didn't feel the topics and style were geared towards teens only. WHile a young adult book, this one did not rub me in the annoying way the first book did.

    However this book did not really grab and easily hold my attention either. Easily put aside and forgotten. Especially the middle of the book. I struggled to get through it. Nick and Daisy do not help. They bored me.

    I am liking Cal's character more and more and I have mixed thoughts on her dad. He is too career focused but I think he has a good heart. The ending has me really wondering what is to come next.
  • (4/5)
    Pros:
    * We meet Dad!
    * We learn how Alice became a demon
    * They were betrothed?!

    Cons:
    * Nick and Daisy were a bit stereotypical
    * What is Cal really feeling?

    I liked this one a lot more than Hex Hall.
  • (4/5)
    I enjoyed this book more than the first, and I think it did a great job building on the first one. The plot was clearly planed out in advanced and it shows! It still had a lot of corny lines thrown around and some of the character reactions were a little unbelievable. The one that really bothered me was Sophie's reaction to her absentee dad's return to her life. I highly doubt that a teen who's deadbeat dad never had the time of day for her would welcome him so readily and completely. I also had some issues with the Sophie/Archer/Cal mess. I found Cal to be a much more defined character than Archer, and wish there had been more about him. Overall it was a great sequel.
  • (5/5)
    Ok. To be honest I wanted to lower the rating on this book because of the serious cliffhanger. In my opinion cliffhangers are like the authors being lazy, they don't want to spend the time to wrap up the book before the next book so they will just chop it off and leave it be. I HATE CLIFFHANGERS! That being said, I don't think Rachel Hawkins is lazy, she is a lovely women and writer but I just really really hate cliffhangers.

    Now that you know this book ends on a serious cliffhanger I will say the book is excellently written and keeps you on your feet through the entire book. I found it a tab bit predictable because I knew who the "bad guys" were from the beginning, I could just feel it. I still enjoyed getting to the reveal though. I hate this type of villain most though because they believe what they are doing is right when in essence it's not. The self diluted or something seem to just be excellent villains.

    The plot is smooth and easy to read. The characters are complicated and remain basically unchanged. I heart Cal, I am on Team Cal, I wish Sophie would just be with him, he is hot and awesome. Give up on Archer and just be with him. On that note, Team Archer's will be happy about this book, we see him here and there through the whole thing. *eye roll*.

    Excellent book, BESIDES THE CLIFFHANGER, and of course I will read the next one, I have no flipping choice.

    Cal. Freaking Cal is too cute. I would have want him for myself if he was real. It's just sad that the girl in books always(maybe not) fell for the guys that challenges, thrills and endangers them. Why do they always chose bad-ass boys?

    But whatever. Archer isn't that bad. I think something happened in the past for him to be able to join the Eye. I think it's a set-up or something. And okay, he is cute, too. (Do I even find ugly boys in books? No.)

    Going to read the next book :)
  • (3/5)
    Sophie, Jenna and Cal go to England to stay with Sophie's father so that she can learn how to control her powers and make an informed decision about going through the removal. The Eye is still after Sophie and they still seem to be using Archer to do it. Or are they?

    I still really like Sophie. She is still sarcastic and fun and watching her learn about her father and what he's like is definitely interesting. He doesn't come across as someone who would keep such a huge secret from Sophie as what she was and I do wish we had gotten some insigth into.

    I will say that I am extremely sick of the whole love triangle thing in YA. Archer and Sophie are star-crossed lovers. Does Cal really need to be in love with Sophie? Was it really necessary? I just felt like the whole star corssed lovers thing was enough especially when you include the developing relationship with her dad and the politics of the council. I'm also just kind of over Archer as a whole. He didn't feel as developed in this book as he did in the last and I was honestly just getting sick of him.

    The Committee itself came across as interesting and dangerous. There seemed to be an extreme lack of checks and balances in the structure and I could feel both Sophie and her father's frustations with it.

    The book ends on a cliffhanger and in a way that almost makes me wonder if it's a complete book or a just a bridge to a third volume. Enough happens that it definitely works as a full book, but I feel like too much happens too. It doesn't feel like it has it's own independent story because none of the plot threads feels entirely resolved (even though one kind of is.) For some reason this whole thing just felt unfinished to me and as of right now I just can't shake that feeling.
  • (4/5)
    I liked this book a lot! It expanded the world from the first book. Sophie got a chance to grow and make decisions (some good, some bad) and she got to build a relationship with her father. She also started learning how to embrace her magic. But I would have liked to have seen more Cal. He sounds like my kind of man.

    Really enjoying this series. A few minor niggles about Sophie's supposedly-British dad who says things like "come spend the summer with me". I know, I always complain about things like this, but if you were casting a movie you'd have a man with a British accent in the role. So why have the character with an American turn of phrase in the book? Sigh.

    Oh, and England isn't an island (though I do accept that Sophie probably wouldn't know that!). And British people don't think in kilometres. And I'll shut up about this now...

    Oh, where do I start with this one? It's one of those books that is so good, it's difficult to review. And that pairs with it's the second in the series, I don't want to spoil anything, I want everyone to have the pleasure of reading it themselves. When I finished the first book in this series I was pleased that Demonglass had already been released, and was looking forward to picking it up. There was something very comforting knowing that it was there waiting for me when I was ready. But life got in the way (as usual) and it was a while before I could get to it. But when I did it was just as good (better?) than the first. I spent way too many nights staying up way too late reading, and it consumed my thoughts for many of my waking hours. Many of my favorite characters were back (I won't spoil it by telling you which, but if you have read the first, I’m sure you can guess) with some new, very interesting additions. I liked the final setting, as it's been expanded out to the world, and we are not longer confined to the island the school is on.I will say I had a serious gag moment when the author tried to combine Romeo and Juliet and a love triangle (take from that what you will). Really Ms. Hawkins? I love the story, by that made me want to smack myself. For my taste, the ending was a bit abrupt and open ended. It makes me crave the sequel NOW, and irritates at the same time. In fact, I will go so far as to say that it physically hurt when I finished, knowing I was going to have to wait for the next one. (if you are interested, amazon.ca has the release date for the next one as March 13 2012). I guess I will have to try and find some great reads to distract myself in the meantime.Suggestions?

    And just then, that feeling washed over me again, the strange psychic impulse I’d been feeling since I left Graymalkin. But this time, it wasn’t dread that washed over me, or fear.It was happiness. Hope.—SophieThe cliffhanger ending of Hex Hall totally got me right on the spot, and within a few days, I had already got the second book on hand and read it instantly. And I have to say that truthfully, I thought this one was as good as the first one, and even better.Demonglass told us about Sophie's life when she decided that she would go through Removal, so that she would not have to be demon again. That she would be just like everyone else, perfectly normal. But her father, totally disagree with her decision, convinced her to spent her holiday with him at the countryside. Little did she know that her father was not like how she thought he was. And when her supposed-to-be-okay father-daughter-time turned into something much more dangerous, Sophie must made her decision between love, family, friend, or the world.Personally, I love how the plot in Demonglass had less sagging compared to Hex Hall. It was fast paced and thrilling, yet it was slow enough to make it clear for the reader what was exactly happened. There was a lot going on this book, but Rachel managed to put it all into one and it flow quite flawlessly. the twist on the end of the book was great too, again with the cliffhanger, and it really made the reader curious about the continuation.Sophie Mercer, still being the main character of this book, was more developed too than in Hex Hall, with her showing more of her soft side but still balanced with her usual yet unique sarcastic attitude. It was nice to sometimes see a girl that was independent and can made her own decision, as well as acted out on her own and with her way.Archer Cross was showing a significant development as well, with him being more in depth and more flesh and blood. He was shown to be actually very hurt and broken inside, and personally, I think the writing was so well I could not help but to sympathize with him.One thing I'm not quite fond of this book was the love triangle. Sophie and Archer, I could get it. But the new guy? It was all so sudden, and truthfully, I can't quite believe that it was actually love or something entirely different. It is just not real enough.Overall, I have to say that I really love this book. If you like fantasy and funny read that can make you laugh, but still have an interesting story line, I would really recommend this one.
  • (5/5)

    I posted this statement on various websites when it happened, but when a book causes me to swear vehemently at it for the last half, and then force me after finishing it to lay facedown on my bed saying: Ican’tican’tican’tican’t over and over again. That is a sure sign that it is a great book.
    I was actually a little bit worried about this one at the beginning, mostly because I was worried that it would succumb to the trilogy problem of the second book. This book also introduces something of a love triangle so I was really worried about that as well (1. Because I don’t really like love triangles much, and 2. Having the love triangle introduced in the second book is an interesting tactic that I wasn’t sure would actually work.)
    I can assure you, however, that this book does not disappoint. In fact, in some ways it’s better.
    This book takes place in England, away from Hex Hall. Sophie, Jenna and Cal are taken by Sophie’s father to England. Mostly to keep Sophie safe over the summer, but there are other reasons as well.
    Like I said before, something of a love triangle is introduced in this book. Except, it’s kind of not. Like, in Prodigium society witches and warlocks are betrothed, except they don’t necessarily have to go through with those betrothals if they don’t want to. So, yes, Cal and Sophie are betrothed. Except she’s not really interested and aside from a few sweet moments they share, it’s pretty obvious she’s still in love with Archer - the warlock who works for the anti-Prodigium group.
    Which is good. Because I adore Archer. Really I do. In a lot of recent YA books, the bad boy type is attempted and fails miserably. But Archer does a pretty good job of it (he also is a toned down version of the evil!boyfriend trope. And we all know how much I adore that trope). He doesn’t make as many appearances in this book as in the previous one, but when he is in the story it’s pretty great.
    In essence, Sophie is taken to the current Council headquarters in England, were she meets two other demon kids - Nick and Daisy (oh, Nick. I couldn’t help comparing him to Nick Ryves, my dear favourite demon/human from The Demon’s Lexicon.) She was under the impression that her family were the only ones who were actually demons, but then she meets these kids. Her father then explains to her that Nick and Daisy were created much like Sophie’s ancestor, Alice, and he was searching for a way to reverse the process.
    Now, ok, I was a bit put out - I guess - about the fact that Sophie gets along so well with her absentee father. I mean, I’m not entirely sure that it would work like that. I didn’t mind that she got along really well with him, because I thought he was a great character. I guess I just wanted a little more teenage abandonment angst. Then again, Sophie isn’t an angsty character so I guess that does explain that.
    During the course of the summer, though, Sophie (with the help of Archer) discovers a plot that could prove even more dangerous to the Prodigium than both their current enemies combined.
    Then, I mean, just as a note I spent the entire last 50 pages swearing at the pages. Because the ending is AMAZING. I really like the pacing of these books. The endings are just complete rushes of action and it’s great. I also wasn’t expecting the end at all so that was just great.
    Also Rachel Hawkins is one of us (the infected few who watched Hex and spawned these kinds of novels) so, basically, she’s the greatest and I really would like to meet her. To sob about Hex, mostly.

    Did not at all feel like the usual trilogy middle book "buffer". There's so much supernatural YA flooding the market, and yet I find this series surprisingly entertaining. The dialogue is hilarious.
  • (4/5)
    Initial thoughts: So good! Hex Hall was my favorite book of 2011. I found it fantastic. Hawkins does it again with this sequel! The story moved perfectly, dialogue was engagingly witty, and overall this was so much fun to read! (Till the end... Can I have book 3 now, please?!)

    Review:
    Writing a review for sequels is tough. You have to direct it to those who both have read the original and those who may have stumbled upon your review and haven't read the original novel. I'm going to keep this review for 'Demonglass' pretty short and sweet and try to keep as many spoilers out of it. I want you to enjoy this book and its many surprising plot points just as much as I did!

    'Demonglass' is a fantastic read. Seriously, it is just as good as its predecessor, 'Hex Hall'. What did I love about this novel? So many things! First off, author Rachel Hawkins did a perfect job of reminding us what happened in the original novel without hitting us over the head with the entire plot of 'Hex Hall' all over again. The story starts off soon after the ending of 'Hex Hall'. Plot points are arranged perfectly and the story flow is fantastic. 'Demonglass' is always engaging and always entertaining. I don't recall it dragging at all, which has been a problem in most YA books I've read as of late! Just like the original, Hawkins doesn't let one element overtake the entire novel. 'Demonglass' is equal parts action, romance, and humor.

    Sophie's self deprecating wit was spot on and quite welcome! Archer, well, I adore Archer. If only he were real! The banter between Sophie and Archer-- loved it. Adding to this already phenomenal cast of characters is the introduction of Sophie's father and the further development of Hex Hall's groundkeeper, Cal.

    Sophie's father was a great addition. I loved his speech patterns (which sounds odd to mention), but he had a particular way of speaking that made him stand out, yet still seem related to snarky Sophie. Truthfully, I remember Cal being mentioned in 'Hex Hall', but not much other than that. He had more of a supporting character role in 'Demonglass'. I wouldn't go so far as saying that he evens out a love triangle, but I liked learning more about him and look forward to seeing what happens next with his character.

    'Demonglass' gets 4 out of 5 stars. This sequel doesn't disappoint. If you liked 'Hex Hall' at all, then find a copy of 'Demonglass'. It's just that good! (Minus the cliffhanger ending-- that was just plain mean!)
  • (5/5)
    After developing a serious love for this series when I read the first book earlier in the week I tried my best to wait a little before reading book two; to prolong the experience, I guess. I lasted a whole two days before I caved and just dived right into this one! Book twos in a series are often less than exciting but Demonglass didn't disappoint me in the slightest. I loved it from start to finish. I honestly couldn't handle tearing my eyes away from the pages.

    Hex Hall really left us off on a huge cliffhanger. Sophie was just after discovering she's not a witch at all... she's a demon! She wants to go through 'The Removal' which has a high chance of killing her. This book shows us Sophie's journey as she learns more about who she is, where her family came from and what she can expect from her future. The more knowledge Sophie gets about her situation, the more confused she becomes! I honestly would hate to have been in Sophie's position and I think she handles it really well. I love that she can manage to be hilarious even during the most awful of times. Her sarcastic attitude made me laugh out loud more than once!

    In Demonglass, we really get to know more about the other characters in the book which I was so happy about. Sophie's relationship with her dad is rocky but blooming! It's so cool to watch them get to know each other after all these years and to see all the little things they have in common. We also get to know Cal more which is awesome. He was really in the background in Hex Hall so I didn't form much of an opinion about him at all. But now he's one of my favourite characters! He's so sweet and in his own way, funny.

    We meet loads of new characters in this one and they're all fascinating. I spent a lot of this book wondering who was on whose side and all the twists took me by surprise! Anyone who loved Hex Hall will love this one and if you haven't read Hex Hall yet, I highly suggest you do so! I am so excited about starting on book three.
