Book Review - Raising Demons (Demonglass) by Rachel Hawkins (may contain spoilers)

Demonglass (A Hex Hall Novel)
Number of Pages - 368

Publisher - Simon & Schuster

My Review - 10 out of 10

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?

Best wishes

I am looking forward to receiving my copy very soon (it's on order). Sounds excellent. I read Hex Hall when it was released and I can't remember quite a lot about it apart from obviously the main points. I'm hoping I can catch up.

When I started this one I could not remember a lot from Hex Hall but I soon caught up and in the first couple of chapters it does remind you of what happened last time... :-)
