Waiting on Wednesday: Demonglass (Hex Hall #2)

Waiting on Wednesday recognizes that we as bookies pine for books. This post is about what I am impatiently waiting for right now. It was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Many of you may remember how much I LOVED Hex Hall by the fabulous Rachel Hawkins. But did you know that the sure-to-be terrific sequel Demonglass is coming out in three short weeks on February 15th?! Obviously, if you haven't read the first book READ NO FURTHER IF YOU DON'T WANT SPOILERS!!! Fair warning.

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 Archer to do it. But it’s not like she has feelings for him anymore. Does she?

From Goodreads

After the whirlwind ride that was the first book, this one seems to build upon subplots only hinted at in Hex Hall. I am truly looking forward into delving into Sophie's true nature as she must confront the reality of her existence & everyone else's too. This series seems to be taking off quite well & I am looking forward to a deeper understanding of the inside workings of this magical world. Rachel's writing has bewitched me & I love it!! What are you waiting on this week?
