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 Archer to do it. But it’s not like she has feelings for him anymore. Does she? - Goodreads
Sophie is still the fun, sarcastic, loveable girl I knew from Hex Hall. After all the bad stuff she went through in the first book, her character has definitely grown. She’s easily one of my most favorite characters ever. We get to see some of Archer in the book, although not as much as in the first book. I really liked Archer from the beginning, even though I never know when to believe him. We get to see another side of Cal in the book as well. (Oh, to be in Sophie’s shoes right now.) Jenna is a really wonderful friend, and I wish she had a bigger part in the book. We are also introduced to Sophie’s dad in this book, who I really like, as well as some other interesting characters.
The story was absolutely wonderful, and kept me guessing. There were so many different things going on, which made it really hard to put the book down. The ending is a huge cliffhanger. HUGE! I’m anxiously waiting for the next book to be released, because I need to know that’s going to happen next.
Overall, I loved this book. I love this Series! I just can’t get enough of it. Happy Reading!
