Sophie thought she was a witch. That’s why she was sent to Hecate to attend school with other paranormal kids. But when she finds out she’s a demon, her world changes. In Demonglass, she moves to England to live with her father, and Jenna and Cal come along. While Sophie is figuring out her powers, she considers going through The Removal to rid herself of them entirely. Add to the mix Archer Cross, her demon-hunting ex-crush, and Sophie has her hands full.
I got to Demonglass a lot later than I intended. And as a result, once I started reading it, I realized I didn’t remember that much about Hex Hall. And honestly, now that I’ve waited months to review Demonglass, I can’t remember much about that either. Bad blogger. Don’t you hate when that happens?
I liked Hex Hall a lot (despite my failing memory). Unfortunately I did not feel the same way about Demonglass. Demonglass takes us away from Hecate to the English countryside, and I missed the boarding school part of the story. It also kind of felt like there was a lot going on that I didn’t quite follow.
I will definitely read the third book, Spell Bound, due out in March. I still really like Sophie and the boys are pretty crush-worthy. Sometimes middle books don’t live up to the rest in a series so I won’t let my lackluster feelings for Demonglass deter me from finishing.
