Hex Hall was one of novels I wished I read earlier. Actually, I came across the book over year ago, but haven’t had a chance to get it, till now. What captured my attention was fact that it was about witches, magic and I always been fascinated with that, ever since I read Harry Potter. Hex Hall had so much more, witches, demons, faeries, mystery and even murder. Every page had me on the edge of my seat. I’m eager to find what happens with Sophie next, what adventures, dangers she will face next.

 When Sophie was 12; she discovered she was a witch. The powers that only seem to get her into trouble. When a spell goes wrong, causing too much exposure to humans, Sophie’s father who is powerful warlock, as punishment sends her to Hex Hall, an isolated reform school. On first day, she manages to make three powerful enemies, who look like supermodels; crush on warlock who is also unavailable, and a vampire roommate, who is most hated person at Hex Hall.

Things turn for worse, when a mysterious predator begins attacking students. Jenna, who is Sophie’s only friend, instantly becomes number one suspect. Sophie attempts to try and prove Jenna’s innocence. But that least of her worries when she finds out that an ancient secret society, determines to destroy all prodigium, including her.

  First, I need point out how much I adore the cover for the book, it’s stunning and unique. It was unlike any other covers that I seen while reading a book, it’s the type of cover that will attract reader’s attention, that’s for sure. Now, the story in general kept me on the edge of my seat. This is another novel that I had a hard time putting down. It grabbed my attention from first page, and more I read, the more intense the got, and more curious I got, of what is going happen with everyone next. Sophie, I liked her from beginning, even if she did manage to get herself in trouble, constantly. The way she stayed such loyal friend, to Jenna even when everyone was accusing Jenna of being a killer. Also way she didn’t even hesitate in killing Alice at end.

Archer & Sophie. I thought the tension between them, in beginning and especially when Sophie realized her feelings for him, was what made it more interesting, fact that they didn’t fall in love right away. I could, that Archer truly cared for her, even when I found he was the bad guy, he had a chance to stab her, yet he didn’t. The fact that he was crying, indicated that he did care for her. I did not see that coming though, Archer being the bad guy, he just didn’t seem the type, which was shock to me. I am curious what Sophie would do; say if she did come across him again. Another surprise, was finding out that Sophie was a demon.

All through the book, I kept wondering who was killing the students, somehow I had feeling that it wasn’t Jenna. I enjoyed every aspect of this book, I would highly recommend checking it out.
