Quote saved. Love Interest. Well, in the beginning I could take Archer or leave him. Yeah, he was fine…. He coasted. That was until the end when he suddenly got much more interesting. And ripped, apparently. Best Friend. Lesbian vampire.
Jenna was fantastic and, although Sophie was sometimes a bit unnecessarily cruel to her Um, wallowing in self-pity?! I have to admit when she came out of the coffin my eyes did begin to roll and my lips began to curl, my natural reaction to vampires.
Theme Tune. OK, when I first picked up this book I was all smitten and smug smuggen? But then Ms Hawkins with her devious twists and turns which I will not divulge completely blew that out of the water.
So I thought I was snookered. But then I thought, no.
Because I love this song and it is perfect for seducing unsuspecting warlocks in a basement this book…. Witchy Woman by Eagles Angst Level. This book is relatively tame in the angst level.
Although… I gather the sequel is going to be a lot darker. Recommended For. People who are looking for a new fictional best friend that will make them realise how boring and ordinary their lives are.
People who would be able to think of witty responses to a werewolf lunging for your jugular. People who are sick of others being suspicious when they ask them to join their secret coven.
People who will always lust after the groundskeeper.
People who wish their detentions had been that fun… mmmhmmm. Although, I probably would have more luck finding a prom date than finding someone to go on Air for the third time in a row.

It took several tries to get past the first couple of chapters, but once Sophie finally gets settled in at Hex Hall things start moving along. The witchy battles are pretty cool, there's good build-up of the mystique behind the school and behind Sophie's past and powers, and the author does a nice job with creating a variety of different characters with distinctive voices.
I especially liked BFF Jenna and the super cute and witty Archer, and Sophie herself turns out to be a pretty kick-ass heroine. It did take me a little while to get used to the author's voice, but the humor actually gets to be really good as the story develops and I've gone back to giggle over certain passages again.
Overally, this is a really terrific debut and a fast-paced, entertaining read. It's always a plus when a YA author manages to surprise her audience with twists and turns in the plot too, and there are a couple of really good ones here that will leave readers on the edge for more.

The author manipulated these fantastic characters pretty well and created interesting conflicts and twists although personally, I think the plot could use a bit more action.
This is highly recommended especially for young readers or even old looking for a light, enjoyable fantasy read. View all 56 comments. May 11, Emily May rated it really liked it Shelves: I was so pleasantly surprised by this book, almost as surprised as I am by the fact that I actually decided to read it.
I'd all but given up on young adult novels that feature any of the following: Young adult fantasy and urban fantasy seems to have been constantly churning out more of the same, but Hex Hall really ticked all the right boxes for me. Granted, a boarding school for witches and whatnot isn't exactl I was so pleasantly surprised by this book, almost as surprised as I am by the fact that I actually decided to read it.
Granted, a boarding school for witches and whatnot isn't exactly original and it's a hard field to compete in when you're up against the likes of J. Rowling , but I liked Hawkins' laid back and kind of chick-lit style writing. The novel reminded me of something in between Vampire Academy and this TV show that I used to love when I was a kid called 'The Worst Witch', maybe I'm wrong but I'd be willing to bet that not many people outside of the UK have heard of it.
Anyway, you basically have all you expect from a regular high school: But then you also have the added trouble that comes with supernatural creatures and magical powers: I won't say that I expected to hate it, but I did expect to be bored. I never imagined there would be moments that made me laugh out loud and annoyingly stereotypical bad boys that are actually hot enough to get away with being annoyingly stereotypical bad boys.
Yes, you heard me right: Maybe my mid-life crisis came early but I thought Archer was really hot. I think I liked him most because he had a sense of humour and didn't say really stupid cliched phrases like "I'm wrong for you because I'm so badass" - okay, maybe it doesn't quite go like that but I hate literary heroes that believe they're so bad that they've earned the right to apologise for it.
My point: Archer wasn't like that. The mystery was alright but it wasn't my favourite bit; the novel's strength was in the characters and the dialogue, not in the plot behind it all.
Probably was what stopped me from giving it 5 stars, my full marks demand a better story. But what the heck, it was fun, I enjoyed it a lot, and I now have every intention of reading Demonglass.

After six years. So, here I'm and this time in English. The main character is 16 which is a little younger than books I usually read right now. But honestly? I did not care at all! Sophie is so damn hilarious. I love that girl! Nothing changed here. I was pleasantly surprised, how much I've laughed. Really liked this one. View all 8 comments. Dec 07, Rachel E.
Carter rated it liked it Shelves: I really liked Archer but I wasn't very drawn into the plot or the main character. The author has a fun, fast-paced writing style that is easy to follow and plenty of humor to go around, but I was not a fan of the cliff-hanger ending for a first book in a series.
I will get around to the sequel at some point but this is one of my more light-hearted fantasy reads. I think it would have been a hit for my middle school self: View all 6 comments. May 09, Natalie Monroe rated it it was ok Shelves: Elodie [his girlfriend] is stupid and dull. Also known as YA's embarrassing puberty years. I tend to stay away from books published during that time since they're filled with unhealthy romantic relationships and girl-on-girl hate.
YA now is like college you, all grown-up and cringing at the occasional photo of your tween self that po "Archer is smart and funny in addition to being hot. YA now is like college you, all grown-up and cringing at the occasional photo of your tween self that pops up on Facebook. Hex Hall is juvenile YA. The writing is a more inane version of Meg Cabot 's style, filled with cutesy internal monologues and pop culture references. The plot is an typical mystery type without much punch.
And the girl hate. God , the girl hate. They looked amazing in the fugly gym uniforms. I thought it was heading that direction for a while and was sadly let down. Yeah, sure, she passes Sophie her powers in the end. Cry me a river. What power? The power to tear each other down? It was ridiculous.
Ethics aside, it's a damn good tactic. The feminism in Hex Hall reminds me of this movie I watched recently: White Chicks. I know, it's been out for over a decade, but I wasn't interested until I saw a gif of one of the protagonists telling the other to hold his poodle, so he can beat someone up.
It's not devoid of female bonding—Sophie and Jenna's relationship was nicely done—but it relies on knocking down other women to build the home team up. In White Chicks, it's the fake Wilson sisters and their friends against the spoiled heiresses who are willing to sleep their way onto the catwalk. In Hex Hall, it's Sophie and Jenna against the witches' coven who are obsessed with power and their looks. I'm sure you're all tired of me banging on about feminism, but it's something I unconsciously look for when I read.
I weigh other factors too obviously—plot, pace, characters, the realistic aspect, etc, but gender equality is up there. If a book is awesome enough, I can overlook certain aspects, like Six of Crows 's arguably archetypal ending view spoiler [of a hero needing to rescue his girl. View all 20 comments.

I've seen the same story time and time again in books like Secret Lives , Evernight , Firespell , and it is just boring me. The teachers don't seem to give a damn about discipline-explain to me why the werewolf who attacked Sophie on her first minute on campus got no punishment? Is attempted murder seen as acceptable at this school?
The only one who was given a stern talking to was the guy who saved Sophie by using magic to protect her from the werewolf! Strange moral code from the head teacher don't you think?
As usual in these books, the kids do what the hell they like with the teachers ignoring them, which defeats the whole purpose of the school in my opinion. These kids are sent to this school because they can't control their power so surely they should be watched closely!!! I hate stupid plots like this. View all 19 comments. Jul 06, Alexandra Bracken rated it it was amazing. I can't even tell you how many times I laughed out loud or had to put the book down because I was laughing so hard!
Sophie Mercer is now officially one of my favorite heroines and I just might be a little bit in love with Archer Cross, too. I can't say enough wonderful things about this book, only that you need to pick it up ASAP when it debuts next March. I'm only sad that I have to wait so long to read the next book in the series!!

Actual Rating: My last Rachel Hawkins one didn't attracted me that much and It's not an original plot. A young witch who screw up and let humans see her magic.
Firstly, how can she be that dumb to show her magic to others like nothing? Who she doesn't even know that well and is like "let me be your fairy godmother. Ops, sorry And there she makes frien Actual Rating: And there she makes friend with this pinky girly vampire who is her new roommate view spoiler [And I loved how the homosexual card was played here.
Jenna is so sweat and her relationship with Sophie was really awesome. I really liked that we have a book that finally portraits that having a gay girl friend doesn't means she will be different, or that she won't like pink or be feminine or even that she will like you. Now what about you? Definitely something cutesy ending in ie. Sophie is too slow and sometimes she was too dumb. Although I kinda liked when she was really useless as a witch because, well, we are useless.
That would have been cool. Instead I raised the stake to about shoulder height and took two, maybe three shuffling steps forward. Then viselike fingers clenched my throat, the stake was wrenched from my hand, and a sharp stabbing pain shot up my right thigh as I landed on the ground with a thump that knocked the breath out of me.
There were people or monsters that were really well introduced and they never appeared again. Or were just a cameo in the corner of the story. I also expected more from the professors. Not a Minerva McGonagall kind of development, but something. There were also things told over and over again, like the reader didn't get it the first time. And the second. And the third Her life is thrown into further turmoil upon the discovery that her great-grandmother, Alice, is actually a demon who is responsible for the deaths at Hex Hall who was raised by the dark coven to help Prodigium defeat The Eye.
Sophie ends up killing Alice with a special sword made of demonglass a rare substance only found in hell , and learns that since she has demon blood, she could revert to demon nature and kill someone she loves, as did her grandmother, killing her grandfather.
Sophie decides to go to London, and go through the Removal, which will take away her demon side. After learning that she is not a witch but in fact a demon , Sophie requests to go through a process known as The Removal. Her father who's actually the head of The Council, James Artherton, denies her request, persuading her to visit him in London at Thorne Abbey over the summer to learn to control her powers.
She agrees to his proposal and travels to England with Jenna and Cal.
Upon arriving, she meets the remaining members of The Council as well as two children, Nick and Daisy, who had been turned into demons. Sophie and her father begin to work on mastering her powers, culminating in Sophie helping her father steal an ancient spell book they believe will help them turn Nick and Daisy human once again. However, they discover the relevant pages in the book have been removed. Feeling neglected by and resentful of Jenna, who is enamored with her new girlfriend and desires to move away and join a vampire coven, Sophie begins to bond with Cal and attempts to befriend Nick and Daisy.
While at a Prodigium night club, Sophie and the others narrowly escape an attack by The Eye, who are looking for Sophie. Among the members of the attack is Archer, who secretly gives Sophie a magical coin she can use to communicate with him.
Sophie ignores Archer's repeated attempts to talk to her, though later gives in when Archer attends her birthday party in disguise. After Sophie is attacked at the party, she and Archer use a portal called an Itineris to travel to Hex Hall, where they are attacked by humans that were used to be turned in to demons also known as ghouls. Upon returning to England, Sophie confesses everything to her father, including the fact that she suspects the Casnoffs the headmistress of Hex Hall and part of the Council to be behind Nick and Daisy's demon transformations.
Elodie, who was previously murdered by Sophie's great-grandmother, appears as a ghost to warn Sophie of Archer being attacked by Nick. Sophie convinces Cal to heal Archer, who is immediately imprisoned by Sophie's father. The next day, Sophie is sentenced to go through the Removal, and her powers are rendered useless. The Casnoffs' reveal they were indeed behind the demon raisings and subsequently force Sophie's father to go through the Removal as well.
Cal instructs Sophie to use the Itineris to go to her mother, who is currently staying with the Brannicks, one of the enemies of the Prodigium, and he kisses her.
The novel ends as Sophie steps through the doorway. Sophie arrives at the homestead of the Brannicks, an ancient female clan that has been at war with the Prodigium, whose numbers are now dwindling.
After being reunited, Sophie's mother explains that she was born into the Brannick's clan, but chose not to fight in the war against the Prodigium.
At first wary of one another, Sophie and the Brannicks slowly begin to warm to each other. Meanwhile, Sophie reluctantly finds herself a companion in Elodie, and the two discover that Sophie is able to tap into her powers while Elodie is inhabiting her body. After some time, Jenna and Archer manage to find Sophie, though almost immediately they are transported back to Hex Hall via a spell cast by the Casnoffs, who are using the school to imprison all of the recent Prodigium students.
