Demonglass Download ã 104 À Sophie Mercer's first term at Hex Hall turned out to be uite eventful First the ghost of her evil grandmother haunted her every move then her best friend was accused of murder and of course there was the discovery that Archer Cross aka the boy of her dreams was actually an undercover demon hunter which would probably be somethiThen a uiet holiday isn't really that likely And as Sophie struggles to come to terms with her new found demon powers she finds herself thrust once again into a world of dark magic and conspiracies The only thing that could possibly make things complicated would be for Archer Cross to show up again which of course he wouldn't would. You know how sometimes you just take a totally irrational liking to a particular character and when the story doesn't work out in their favour you just want to throw the book away Yeah that's what happened to me with Demonglass Also why is this book called Demonglass when the demonglass doesn't play any major role in the book Before I start the review I want to make some things very clear Objectively speaking this is a great book and very worthy of four stars Sophie is still as snarky and adorable as she was in Hex Hall I'm a little bit in love with her father and the plot has very many twists and turns than the first book It was an exciting breathless read SO what went wrong for me in Demonglass Two words Team CalI know I know it's crazy How can I prefer the clean cut All American boy to the dark troubled rebel Wasn't I the one who admitted to having a secret weakness for starcrossed lovers And Archer's so hot and Sophie's so in love with him BUT What can I say I still like Cal better I swear I'm not doing it to be perverse I just think I would have liked the book about forty times if Rachel Hawkins had decided to make Sophie get the hell over her crush on Archer especially since she knows he's helping to kill hundreds of innocent Prodigium and made her slowly fall in love with the kinder compassionate and infinitely mature Cal However this is not my book and since Rachel Hawkins has done a good job with the direction she has taken I will grudgingly admit despite my blind partiality for Cal that the book works wellThere is some great chemistry between Sophie and Archer and I like the fact that Sophie doesn't miss him and think about because of how hot he is but rather because she misses talking to him and hanging out with him In Demonglass Sophie finally meets her father who persuades her to come to England to get to know him and learn about her demon powers before going through with the Removal She also discovers that she is betrothed to Cal which makes for plenty of awkwardness Sophie Cal and Jenna go to England where they also discover two other demon teenagers Sophie discovers that the Prodigium is on the brink of war with the Eye and slowly begins to accept her powers her future role as Head of the Council and her love for her father Into the middle of this come several crises including the reappearance of Archer in her life the threat of someone raising demons and the knowledge that someone wants Sophie dead This book is not as simplistic as Hex Hall The humor and snark are still there but you can see Sophie growing up to be a mature astute person Her growing relationship with her dad a mixture of sarcasm admiration and eventually love is great to see While the first half of the book was fun and interesting the second half was heart poundingly good The plot takes several unexpected twists and turns and what I really liked about the ending is the fact that the villains are not cut and dried 'I want to be the most powerful person in the Prodigium' warmongers; instead they believe their path is the only way to save the Prodigium It's so rare to come across shades of grey in YA literature that I'm always glad to see even a hint of it I have to admit that one of the things that really ticks me off is when strong heroines fall apart in crisis situations I know it may be realistic and true to life but personally I like my kick ass heroines to be kick ass This is one of the things that put me off Mockingjay the fact that Katniss fell apart at the most crucial moment the pivotal point at which her skill was most needed I guess I think a heroine is only really strong if you show me she is at the time she needs to be Really strong people deal with things as they happen and give themselves the luxury of falling apart only later So I was a little disappointed that Sophie ends up so passive at a point when she is supposed to be strong and needs to lean on Cal after all That's the sort of underlying reinforcement of the 'little woman' syndrome that makes me want to pull my hair outAs for the romance the only thing I have left to say is that if Hawkins was going to fall into the Triangle Trap the least she could have done was twisted it differently However I must admit I am curious to see where the story will go in the next book in the series and all in all this was a fun exciting read I would totally recommend it

Could have worked on if she hadn't also discovered that she was actually the demon Archer was hunting So despite their issues Sophie is actually relieved to be spending the summer in London with her father But when your father is Head of The Council of Prodigium and your summer is being spent at the headuarters of everything magical. I feel a bit ashamed that the only part I've remembered is this scene “I'm sure you're wondering why I've brought you hereI moved to the center of the room my strappy sandals clacking on the marble floor I'm assuming this is where the punishment part comes in I said So do I need to clean all these mirrors or do I have to like stare at myself until I feel shamed or somethingSurprisingly Dad gave a tiny smile No nothing uite that abstract I want you to break one of the mirrorsExcuse meDad leaned back against the now drapeless window and folded his arms over his chest Break a mirror SophieWhat what my head Because I'm pretty sure that'd be corporal punishment and Mom would not be cool with thatWith your powersUgh I took in the dozens of mirrors and muttered I think I'd rather use my head” Which is still my favourite D I cannot help I love Sophie's humour and I love that her father has it as well I sort of felt like reading it for the first time because I just wanted to scream what The first book is slightly better but it was still awesome I love Nick and Daisy; they are so cute together I want of them And Archer is awesome as well But Cal is getting a bit on my nerves as well as Jenna is
