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 Acher to do it. But it’s not like she has feelings for him anymore. Does she?
What I thought:
I loved the first book and the second was just as good. We get a lot of twists and turns in this that keep the story entertaining and interesting. I really do have to say I love Sophie's snarkiness. I think it works great for the character. It isn't overplayed or used in inappropriate situations (even though she does think about it) but enough to lighten the tension.
I do look forward to the next book, since this ended on such a huge cliffhanger. After reading, I wish I had waited for a couple more books to come out before getting to this one. Cliffhangers are not my thing. I really like to have the main story wrapped up and not wondering for months or a year to find out what happened, but I do plan on reading more. I think the story is great and has major potential so I definitely will be on the look out for the next book.
