Review: Demonglass

Demonglass (Hex Hall #2)

 Title: Demonglass
Author: Rachel Hawkins
Series: #2 of Hex Hall
Genre: Young Adult, Urban Fantasy.
Age restriction? Teens, 13+
Published: 1 March 2011

Fun and feisty, a wondrfully enjoyable sequel to Hex Hall.

Description: 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. ...more

REVIEW:  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.


  1. Nice review! I haven't read Hex Hall or Demonglass but they are in my closet waiting to be picked is reviews like this that makes me want to put all my books to the side and read it! :)

  2. (Weekend Review Club) Well, I just wrote a comment but I think Blogger ate it - it came up with an error message. So I don't know if it went through or not...if so just delete this one! LOL. Anyway, haven't read either Hex Hall or Demonglass yet, but they're definitely on my TBR list. I'm glad to hear that this sequel lived up to the first book; it's always severely disappointing when a book isn't able to do that. Thanks for sharing the great review!

  3. I read Demonglass! I thought it was much more intense than the first book, but I really enjoyed it.

  4. I thought so too, Sonia. Glad you liked it.
