Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins

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

Talk about getting what you asked for!
This book had me on the edge of my seat for the last chapters and, if I'd had any nails left, I would have been biting them. It was a perfect read. Sophie has changed since we first met her in the first book. Now she's not that afraid of speaking for herself but she is heartbroken over what went between her and Archer. That being said, I suggest you go to the library or bookstore (or wherever you get your books from) and pick Demonglass. It was such a thrill to read and it left me gasping for air. Seriously. I read many books and get excited often. It took me two weeks to read the book because when I first picked it up I loved but then something emotional came up and... well, I was overwhelmed. It happens to me a lot. So my friend gave me the book again and I finished it the same day. It was so... exciting, amazing, awesome....
So, go and read it. You will see a lot of other characters and find out (if you don't already knew) Sophie's betrothed among other stuff left unsaid.

My rating: 3.5
