Demonglass (Hex Hall, book 2)

by Rachel Hawkins

Rated: Mild

When we last left Sophie, she had figured out who was killing off the witches, but not in time to save Elodie, one of those popular girls/dark witches. (She wasn’t exactly the nicest person around, but she didn’t really deserve to die. …) Oh, and she discovered that Archer Cross, love of her life, was actually a member of L’Occhio di Dio (aka The Eye, an organization that’s out to eradicate the world of Prodigium), and they can never see each other again. In other words: life sucks.

So, how about summer vacation in England? (That makes everything better, right?)

She finally gets to meet her demon/warlock/powerful-dude dad, who comes to Hex Hall to take Sophie away from the frying pan and into the fire. Sure, the place they’re staying (Thorne Abbey) is huge and gorgeous and English, but there’s trouble brewing. There are two demons staying at the abbey, which means someone is “breeding” them. Then, there’s an attempt on Sophie’s life. And, to make matters worse, Archer saunters back into her life. Just when she thought she was getting over him, and learning to like the guy she’s betrothed to (don’t ask), Cal.

This book is just as full of smart, magical nonsense as Hex Hall was. And I’ll have to add Hawkins to my list of people who know how to write a kiss, because this book had some seriously swoon-worthy parts. They are snarky fun, books that are meant to be read in one sitting, engrossing and hilarious, with pretty wicked twists and turns.

Or, in short, awesome fluff.

Rated: Mild for violence and a couple instances of mild swearing.

    When you are in your MY PAGE of your 360 that is where you edit your page. YOU will always see the white sicteons at the top of each of your modules but people that visit your page don’t see them. To see what other people see when they visit your page go to the top of your page where you will see a drop down box. It will say view as seen by click on the drop down box and choose an option then click go. WHat you see next is how everyone from that category sees your page when they visit. If you have customized your page there is a setting in there to make each of your modules TRANSPARENT. Click on the little white box to the right of each section and it will bring up a color spectrum in the lower left corner of that box is the work TRANSPARENT checkmark that box next to it and your modules will be see thru. Hope this helped you out.
