Goodreads Blurb: 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?
I’m thinking I should have had Spellbound ready to go immediately. The end of this book was total “WTFery,” in the words of Liz.
Sophie can’t seem to stay away from trouble. It finds her everywhere, even on another continent. It’s great seeing her dad. They are a lot alike. Some secrets are let out regarding Cal. He’s such a sweet guy, but it seems like he’s too sweet sometimes. I think Sophie needs to pay attentions to his actions because there may be something between them……
Then we have Archer. I still haven’t decided how I feel about him. He’s charming and witty, except he works for the friggin’ Eye. I guess 1st crushes are hard to get over. Still, you have to wonder what was real and what wasn’t. It’s hard to trust someone that betrayed you.
Nick and Daisy are freaky little demons, literally. I don’t get good vibes off them, and didn’t the entire times. I spent half the time wanting to punch Nick for being a total jerk to Sophie.
Jenna and Sophie’s friendship is tested a few times. But what good is a BFF without fights every once in a while. They do learn a few things about the other. Things they lie to themselves about.
I will be reading Spellbound soon because I have to know what the crap is going on. Secrets from the Council are spilled, but there are some things I’m still not certain of, and I want to know the answers.
