Sophie Mercer thought she was a witch, which was why she was sent to Hex Hall, a reform school for delinquent Prodigium (aka witches, shapeshifters, and fairies). But that was before she discovered she's a demon, and her hot crush, Archer Cross, is an agent for The Eye, a group bent on wiping her kind off the face of the earth. What’s worse, Sophie has powers that threaten the lives of everyone she loves. Which is why she decides to go to London for the Removal, a risky procedure that will either destroy her powers forever—or kill her. But once Sophie arrives, she makes a shocking discovery: someone is raising new demons in secret and planning to use their powers to destroy the world. 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?
Oh Sophie, how I love to be enveloped into your life like this. I picked up Demon Glass yesterday on my lunch hour and am already done with it! One of my favorite parts of this book is watching the relationships grow. Sophie and her father are really complete strangers in her mind as the story begins and they grow to care about and trust one another. We also seen change and growth in Sophie's relationships with her friend Jenna, the healer Cal and the new people brought into her life.
There were some times in reading this that my mind paralleled to the Harry Potter's stories, but it didn't bother me so much it more made me really enjoying seeing life through Sophie's eyes. I consider this a top notch book and if your new to this series check out Hex Hall First!
