Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The second Hex Hall novel follows young demon Sophie Mercer to a huge, gorgeous English country estate with her powerful warlock father, where she can learn more about her heritage and decide whether to go through with her decision to remove her magical powers. Sophie is surrounded by handsome boys: her crush, demon-hunter Archer Cross, and the hunky but taciturn magical healer Cal. Although this second title lacks the plentiful humor of the first, narrator Sophie�s delivery is still delightfully brash, and the many action scenes lend a cinematic feel. An abrupt ending sets up readers for at least one more title. Grades 7-11. --Debbie Carton


"Brisk pacing, sparkling romantic chemistry and genuine heartache will satisfy fans and attract new readers to the series." ---Kirkus --This text refers to the MP3 CD edition.

Hex Hall, the first book in Rachel Hawkins' YA paranormal series was an entertaining read that I thought held the promise of developing into an excellent series. And, with Book Two, Demonglass, it most definitely has. Hawkins has bumped up her game with this book and I'm already anxious to have Book Three in my hands.

The author knows her stuff. Well-written and wonderfully paced, Demonglass has a good mix of action, dialogue and humor, three elements Hawkins has chosen to top off with just the right touch of angsty romance. Best of all, many of the plot intricacies are filled with those oh-so-intriguing shades of grey I tend to love. Who's good? Who's evil? Who's a bit of both? Readers will be trying to determine just that right along with the heroine.

The Setup: After watching her demon grandmother murder her classmate toward the end of Book One and learning that she herself had demon blood, Sophie Mercer makes the decision to undergo the "Removal", a dangerous procedure that - if she lives through it - will take away her powers. As Demonglass begins, Sophie's father arrives at Hecate Hall and informs her that he wants her to delay the Removal until he has had a chance to work with her in controlling her powers. He's confident that, with training, Sophie will never be a danger to those she loves. Reluctantly, Sophie agrees, and the two of them fly to Thorne Abbey in England, a huge manor home that is serving as temporary headquarters of the Prodigium (supernatural beings) Council. Traveling with them are Sophie's best friend Jenna (a vampire) and Cal, the Hecate Hall groundskeeper, an interesting and attractive young man with the power to heal others.

I love it when sequels are as strong as--or better than--their predecessors. It doesn't always happen. I can think of more series that failed to live up to their hype than I can ones that surpassed what was expected of them. Demonglass, the second entry in Rachel Hawkins' Hex Hall series, is a book worthy of standing next to its sibling on the bookshelf. If you thought Hex Hall was fun and quirky, you'll be pleased to know that the second novel in the series is as well. In fact, Hawkins packed the kitchen sink this time around. Demonglass is even spunkier than Hex Hall. This is a series that I never expected to love. I don't read many paranormal novels and I didn't expect much going into the first book. If you recall from my review last month, however, I fell in love with the world Rachel Hawkins created for us. Her characters are witty and fresh. Paranormal stereotypes don't exist; rather, they're turned on their heads.

One of the most interesting things about Demonglass is how fresh it was. Starting the novel, it didn't feel like a rehash of the same old story being drawn out for no necessary reason. There's purpose in everything that goes on. While there's a little angst (because, really, can you think of a single book that doesn't stir things up a bit?), it's not the usual dreck so frequently found in YA literature. Main character Sophie doesn't sit around feeling sorry for herself and whining about her lot in life. No, she's so kick-ass, she's going to do something about it. Without spoiling things for anyone who hasn't read Hex Hall (in which case, what are you sitting around here for? Shoo! Go read!), huge revelations are revealed toward the end of the first book. These things are dealt with here.

Sophie is about to have an imminent breakdown of demon proportions! After watching her classmate die, killing her demon great grandmother, finding out the boy she loves is in league with a group who wants her dead, and that she is a bona fide demon offspring, then her summer holiday should be a snap, right? Of course, where would be the fun in that?

In Demon Glass, Sophie meets her father for the first time, and is whisked off to London to spend time with him and to meet the other slightly creepy council members of the Prodigium. Jenna is along for the ride, and even Cal, who I didn't think would make that much of an appearance, but as it turns out has a definite role in the story. Once at Thorne Abbey, Sophie's mind is even more boggled as she meets two demon teens who were not born as demons but created, which in turn creates a lot of trouble for the council as both The Eye and the Brannicks are out for blood at this monstrous crime. Sophie, working with both her dad, and later Archer, has to find out who is behind it before a war truly begins...that's if she can manage to stay alive first.

Demon Glass is full of Sophie's sarcastic comments and witty repertoire as seen in Hex Hall, but the author cleverly gives Sophie and the rest of the crew emotions that you can easily connect with. The plot was great; the action phenomenal, but the only thing that gave me pause is the bad guys. Close to the end it's pretty obvious who was making demons, but in my mind I still thought there might be a twist changing it up, but there isn't. It's still a great novel, and I cannot wait for the next in the series to find out what happens to all of them! A definite cliffhanger!
