Dusty Reads (15)

Posted by

Dusty Reads is a weekly meme, hosted here, featuring a book that has been sitting unread on my home shelf for some time. To participate, add your link at the bottom. 
If you wish, you can grab the button and find more information here.

My pick this week:

(Hex Hall, #2)
Rachel Hawkins
Released March, 20011

Goodreads / Purchase

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 read Hex Hall at the start of the year and I really enjoyed it, bought this one right away and just never got to it. I’ve been seeing the third book popping up on WoWs lately so I really want to read it soon before it comes  out – And before I forget what happened in Hex Hall. Did you read Demonglass? What did you think?

    Demonglass was definitely one of my favorite reads of last year. It is also the only book that has ever made me change my mind about what guy I felt was right for the main female character. I am sure you will enjoy this one when you are able to get to it. I warn you though, there is a major cliff hanger at the end.

    Hex Hall had me LOLing, so was really excited to get Demonglass. It did not disappoint. Sophie brings the snark. Archer brings the swoon. And the end brings OMGWTFCLIFFHANGERDOOM! Really ramps up the stakes! Can’t wait to read your review of it!

  8. Jackie's Little World
