Hex hall review
Reading Level:Young Adult
First book in a trilogy
Three years ago, Sophie Mercer discovered that she was a witch. It's gotten her into a few scrapes. Her non-gifted mother has been as supportive as possible, consulting Sophie's estranged father--an elusive European warlock--only when necessary. But when Sophie attracts too much human attention for a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, it's her dad who decides her punishment: exile to Hex Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, faeries, and shapeshifters.
This book has a Harry Potter feel to it. I really like books about boarding schools and this is one of my favorites. Sophie thinks she's the worst witch ever when really she's one of the strongest demons created. I like how there's all kinds of creatures in this. There's so much variety.
Sophie has an obvious crush on Archer Cross but he has a girlfriend who hates her for no reason. Surprisingly enough I kinda liked Elodie . Jenna is the funniest vampire I've ever read about. She reminds me of Marissa with her creepy love of pink. Archer Cross is the love of my life. I love his sarcastic remarks all the time. Him and Sophie are a perfect pair.
The storyline of this is extremely exciting something is always happening. This has and will always be one of my favorite books :) .
By the end of her first day among fellow freak-teens, Sophie has quite a scorecard: three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a futile crush on a gorgeous warlock, a creepy tagalong ghost, and a new roommate who happens to be the most hated person and only vampire student on campus. Worse, Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her only friend is the number-one suspect.
As a series of blood-curdling mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her.
