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
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
Archer to do it. But it’s not like she has feelings for him anymore.
I've read Hex Hall, it was pretty good. This one sounds just as good, maybe better. And the cover is awesome. :)
