Okay so I really enjoy this particular series. It is fun, imaginative, occasionally romantic, but really it is just a great break from reality. It is the epitome of a day off book; so light and airy. This one followed up nicely, but for the first time I had an inkling of where it was going and what was happening. It felt a little rush with less detail and story than the last couple books. Some really cool secrets were revealed in this book that kept it going for me. Didn't get to see as much of my favorite character, her vampire friend and roommate at Hex Hall. It also had less history and more everyday stuff which, I thought, took away from it a bit. The great thing about this series is reminds me of the books I read growing up like The Babysitters Club. They make me feel good, I like to research the secret and feel a part of the story. At this point, the books can go anywhere, it will be fun to see what happens to Sophie and whether or not they get more action packed and unexpected, though I do not see another one in the making as of yet.

Review of Demonglass

Summary -
Just as Sophie Mercer has come to accept her extraordinary magical powers as a demon, the Prodigium Council strips them away. Now Sophie is defenseless, alone, and at the mercy of her sworn enemies—the Brannicks, a family of warrior women who hunt down the Prodigium. Or at least that’s what Sophie thinks, until she makes a surprising discovery. The Brannicks know an epic war is coming, and they believe Sophie is the only one powerful enough to stop the world from ending. But without her magic, Sophie isn’t as confident.

Sophie’s bound for one hell of a ride—can she get her powers back before it’s too late?
