If you loved Hex Hall you are going to love Demonglass, I actually found myself enjoying it more than Hex Hall, there seemed to be more action in this novel then there were in the first book. Demonglass held my attention more than the first book and it had more intense plot as well. Demonglass added more mystery, like when Sophie tried figured out who turned Daisy and Nick demon. I loved the fact that there were so many unexpected twists. I’m eager to find out what happens next, with Sophie, With Asher, Cal and even Sophie’s Dad.
Sophie thought she was a witch, which is what landed her at the reform school. However, she soon found out that she was a Demon, one of the only two in world, her father being the first. Sophie makes the decision to go to London and go through removal, a process that can kill her. Her father invites her, along with Jenna and Cal, to spend summer with him in England before making that decision. She agrees.
When she arrives, she makes a surprising discovery, that her newest friends are demons too, expect they were made and nobody knows by whom. To make things more complicated, Archer, her old crush was last seen in England, and the eye is using him to track down Sophie. She finds the feelings she thought were gone, coming back. Forcing for her to make difficult decisions.
Demonglass had my attention right from first page till the very last page. I thought the title was very attention grabbing and the cover, it had a certain mysterious look to it that would make the reader to pick up the book. I had actually picked this book up in past when I saw it at bookstore, not knowing that it was part of a series because the cover caught my eye.
Now, to Sophie. I could see how much she developed through this book, how much stronger she had became. I remember she wasn’t as confident in the last novel. I enjoyed her determination to find out what was going on, for training with her father. There might be some decisions she made that I didn’t agree with, such as meeting Asher, behind her father’s back. I found myself to scream at her, wanting to talk some sense into her, but then I couldn’t blame her either. I love the bond she formed with her father, I actually didn’t think that would be something that would happen and I could tell he really cared about her, especially what he did for her, towards the end. I wasn’t sure if I liked him at first but I loved him by the end of the novel.
Asher & Cal : Even thought I love Asher, even if he is the spy, I found myself liking Cal even more. He wasn’t mentioned much in last book but he played a bigger role in this book. I could tell that he cared about Sophie, even before she had figured it out and I wish that he would made a move earlier then he did, but I found myself waiting for the kiss thought. I know for fact that she felt attracted to him as well. I loved the scenes between the two of them, it’s also making me curious if anything else will happen between two of them in next book. I saw a connection between Asher and Sophie, I could tell right away that they loved each other, and I loved the fact that they had forbidden sort of love going on. I felt heartbroken for Sophie when he was captured.
Demonglass was an enjoyable book; there wasn’t any aspect in the book that I didn’t enjoy. Rachel Hawkins knows how to capture your attention and keep your interest. I’m eager for the next book in the series.
