Well. I love Rachel Hawkins. Just when I think, "Meh, maybe I'm moving out of my YA craze" I read something that is so well written, enjoyable and intriguing that I can't put it down. Hawkins has done this to me twice now.
Sophie went through a lot last semester. I mean, she found out she wasn't a witch but a demon, she battled an epic feud with Elodie (Queen Witch, also acceptable to replace the W with a B), developed a huge crush on Archer Cross (a warlock and boyfriend of Elodie), made friends with the cryptic but kind healer maintenance guy Cal and, among other things, a steamy kiss she shared exposed her crush as a spy for The Eye - you know, the group of people dedicating their lives to killing prodigium?
So what does every good demon need after a crazy semester? A vacation! With her vampire bestie, the friendly neighborhood maintenance man and her long-lost father...in England! In a mansion! Where she finds she's betrothed! And oh yeah, someone is raising more demons! Fun!
Ready your "Team" shirts, girls! As much as Archer makes me swoon there is just something about a hulking Cal that has me cheering from the sidelines! Sophie is an incredibly strong heroine, able to handle much more than anybody should have to, and all the while she maintains a wit and sarcasm that is the best you'll find. Demonglass, like Hex Hall, has the right amount of paranormal mixed with the perfect amount of romance and enough snark to make you laugh out loud.
Book three, Spellbound came out on the 13th so I advise if you haven't already, stock up on all three at once so you don't have to keep running back to the store! This is one trilogy you will definitely want to read all the way through!
