I liked Hex Hall, but I absolutely loved Demonglass! I originally thought it would be a light, fresh, and fun read like the first book of the series, but I didn't expected I to like it so much! In the previous book, Sophie finds out that she isn't a witch like she always thought, but that she's a demon, one of the two (her father is a demon also) in the whole world.
In Demonglass, Sophie sees herself as a monster and decides to go through the Removal, a process that will remove all her powers, despite the fact that it could kill her. So, along with her father, Jenna (her vampire best friend), and Cal (who happens to be her betrothed), she goes to England to the place where Archer is apparently hiding. Her father tries to convince her that the Removal is not her only option and so he teachers her how to control her powers. It is then that Sophie meets two others demons, Nick and Daisy, who were transformed when they were just kids. When the members of The Eye discover that someone is raising demons again, they become more aggressively determined than ever to kill Sophie and her father.
Sophie is such a great character! She's so funny and smart and she made me laugh out loud several times; I loved her sarcasm! Then there's the love triangle. Lately I have started to hate them, not because they are in every single book I read, but because they are, mostly, completely useless! This book's triangle doesn't make a difference. It was pointless, but I still really liked it and I appreciated the fact that Sophie doesn't think of these two guys all the time and that she focuses on very important things like surviving and saving her friends and her family from The Eye.
The end left me a little stunned. I didn't expected another cliffhanger! Luckily I already have the sequel, Spell Bound, and I will read it as soon as possible! My rating is five stars! Yes, Demonglass isn't certainly the best book of the year, but it made me laugh for hours, and after the first few pages I literally started to devour it! If you liked Hex Hall, you definitely should read this book!
