However, it is revealed that Archer is a member of The Eye an organization that wants to kill all Prodigium , having been adopted by them as a child in order to help them fight the Prodigium.
He was given the name Archer Cross after another warlock of the Eye. He feels conflicted over his family loyalty to The Eye and to Sophie. He is shunned from the Prodigium world and seen as a hostile enemy due to his association with The Eye, but does leave The Eye at the end of the series.
It is later revealed that his real name is Daniel Anderson. His parents were killed by his uncle, and his cousin Nick who had been born a demon had tried to kill him not once, but twice. He is betrothed to Sophie, and is in love with her. He is an extremely powerful white warlock, and has the unique ability to heal.
He was sent to Hex Hall when he was thirteen when he healed someone and has lived there ever since. To Cal, Hex Hall is his home. At first Cal and Sophie hardly spoke to each other, but eventually they become friends.
Grace was born a Brannick, but when she was 21, ran away from home and changed her last name to "Mercer". She went to England to find some other way she could help her family that didn't involve killing.
It was in England that she met Sophie's father James. When Grace found out that he was a demon, they had already been together for a year, and she was pregnant with Sophie.

Clarice not only hates the Head of the Council, she also hates James' daughter. Lara Cassnoff Mrs.
Cassnoff's sister. I swear I'm not doing it to be perverse, I just think I would have liked the book about forty times more 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, more compassionate and infinitely more 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 well.
There 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 more 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 more mature, more 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 out. As 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. View all 13 comments. Apr 27, Wendy Darling rated it really liked it Shelves: Still heaps of fun!
I love a good paranormal book as much as the next person, but sometimes they take themselves too seriously.
I'm happy to report that Demonglass retains the same sarcastic humor and a snappy, action-packed plot that is just as entertaining as the one in Hex Hall. Sophie is spending some time on her father's estate to figure out whether she's going to keep her awesome but pesky powers, and she's still secretly pining for her missing demon-hunter crush, Archer Cross.
Complicatin Still heaps of fun! Complicating matters is the revelation that cute-as-heck Cal has been betrothed to her for years hey, they do things differently in the otherworld and the afore-mentioned crush is part of The Eye, a group hell-bent on wiping out all of Sophie's kind. Kinda puts a damper on the relationship. The politics and power struggles within the Prodigium witches, shapeshifters, and fairies and with the demon hunters is growing steadily more complicated, and Sophie and her father must develop her gifts before time runs out.
It would be interesting to see more of the plotting ladies within the Prodigium and to have the tension ratcheted up with The Eye, but hopefully these will be further explored in future books.
The author does a fabulous job of moving the story along with cheeky attitude, however, while taking time out for real connections between Sophie and her BFF Jenna and between her and her dad.
There are also some brief but swoon-worthy moments with her guy, and you really breeze through this thing rooting for everyone to be happy. I'm really enjoying Sophie and her smart and snappy banter, and this series has fast turned into one of my fluffy and fun favorites. The full text of this review may be found in The Midnight Garden. Jun 09, Princess Bookie rated it it was amazing Shelves: My Thoughts: Wow, Wow, Wow, what can I possibly say? So of course I was looking forward to Demonglass but I wasn't sure if it would be as good.
Demonglass outshined my expectations, it was even better than Hex Hall!!!! We are back with Sophie who has spent the last few months trying to get over that fateful night she lost a lot. Her dad's back in the picture, her My Thoughts: Her dad's back in the picture, her friend is dead, her beloved Archer is missing or hiding.
Hawkins, Rachel - Hex Hall
Whats a girl to do? Her dad shows up and suggests taking Sophie back to his house or maybe not his house exactly and she wants to bring Jenna with her. Her dad agrees and he also suggests a mystery guest as well. Who is the mystery guest?
Remember Cal, he was the guy that was a few years older that stayed on campus when he graduated and more or less became the janitor. He heals people. Yep, that Cal. Why on earth is Cal coming I asked myself?
Well, on page 18, I got my answer and I laughed so hard I thought I was going to cry. I loved that!!!! Of course leaving the school, Sophie gets a strange feeling that all 3 of them will not be returning. Sophie and her friends go back to the mansion aka Thorne Abbey.
There they spend the next few months discovering secrets about Sophie's heritage, and just how powerful she really is. The Eye is still out to get her as well, and Archer shows up a lot throughout the book.
Of course Sophie doesn't know who she should really trust. When it comes down to it, everyone seems hunky dory on the outside but Sophie starts wondering about her dad's "friends," who Archer "really" is, and just how many people she can really trust.
With a new set of characters, more intensity in Sophie's life, the fact that the school may not be what it seems, and the Eye out to kill her, Demonglass was a hit! Let me finish by saying this, I really liked Archer in the first book but after getting to know Cal, my feelings started leaning towards him and I desperately wanted something to really happen between Sophie and him.
And everything he sacrificed made me feel so giddy I wanted to jump up and down with excitement. But of course she's still got it bad for Archer!
How do you choose between a super powerful warlock and a hot older healer? Decisions, decisions.
And of course it ends with such a cliffhanger that Demonglass will make people want to cry because as of right now, they can't run to the bookstore and get the next book! Write faster Hawkins! Loved Demonglass!!! Love Sophie, Cal, Jenna, Archer, her dad, just everyone!!! It's awesome. Love it. Its even nicer than Hex Hall! Beautiful cover! What I'd Give It: View all 14 comments. Feb 17, Mlpmom Book Reviewer rated it really liked it Shelves: Honestly, this is a really fun series and the I had no issues jumping right back into it even though it's been years since I read the first book.
Well written with a fast moving plot line and unforgettable characters, a must read for fans of the genre. View 2 comments.
My first thought about this book was that it was a lot sadder than the first. There were so many emotional turns in this book that it left me hanging.
Sophie is as sarcastic and as strong as she was the first book but she still has her doubts about who she is and her powers.
Her budding relationship with her father and the bumps in t My first thought about this book was that it was a lot sadder than the first. Her budding relationship with her father and the bumps in the road before the major earthquake at the end also adds to the list of good things with this book, the list being: Love Triangle Awesome Main Character Mysterious-Once-Good and Friendly-Characters Demons and much more that you'll have to find out for yourself Anyway, you should read this and maybe reread it since the second time for me was better.
Apr 04, Elena rated it really liked it. I literally read this in one sitting! Rachel Hawkins' books are so much fun and fast reads! And the endings always leave me craving more. May 16, Emily May rated it it was ok Shelves: I read this book in the space of just a few hours this morning. This was largely because there were some parts I had to skim-read.
I am so so disappointed in this sequel to Hex Hall , it's been a wishlister of mine ever since I put the previous book down and I honestly believed I would love it - it's even set in my homeland after all!
But I couldn't get into the story Basically, Sophie goes to hide out in the English countryside for f I read this book in the space of just a few hours this morning. At least they didn't quite have insta-love, that would have been too much to take.
What we do get is the suggestion of the inevitable love triangle why, oh, why with Cal now the other potential love interest. Let's face it - probably not gonna happen. Cal appears to be unfortunately, this comparison must be made the Jacob Black of this piece, where Archer is the Edward Cullen except he does actually have a personality.
The author seems to be going down the road of: Just forget it. This book wasn't interesting at all, we've moved away from the cool supernatural mysteries and gone into a story solely centred around love triangles and heartbreak. View all 17 comments. Mar 16, Anne rated it it was amazing Shelves: Demonglass picks up shortly after Hex Hall left off.
Sophie Mercer attends Hecate Hall ,or Hex Hall as the students have come to call it; a school for delinquent Prodigium witches, warlocks, vampires, werewolves, and faeries who have had trouble controlling their powers. In Demonglass, Sophie has decided to go through the Removal after discovering that she is a demon, not a witch like she always thought. The problem is that demons are rare Sophie and her father are the only ones currently in existence and volatile. Sophie has seen first hand what can happen if a demon goes rogue and she refuses to risk hurting anyone she loves.
The Removal is the only guaranteed solution. It will strip her of all of her powers but it will leave her covered in purple tattoo like marks and could also end her life.
Now Sophie is off to London, with Cal who I might add is delicious and Jenna her vampire best friend in tow, to spend the summer with her Dad. He is determined to prove to her that the Removal is not her only option. If only that was her only dilemma.
It turns out that Archer Cross, her former classmate and crush is an agent for The Eye, a group bent on wiping Prodigium off the face of the earth. But rumors say he has been spotted in London… The Eye has always been a concern for Prodigium. But with the discovery that someone is raising new demons, the Eye have become more aggressive then ever. A war is brewing and the ones responsible may be closer then they think. Demonglass was fantastic!
This installment is packed with new information and new riddles. Some family secrets are unveiled as well. And what YA book is complete without a little love triangle action?
It will be a long wait but will you can bet I will be picking it up as soon as it hits the shelves! I took in the dozens of mirros and muttered, "I think I'd rather use my head. Aug 03, Jo rated it liked it Recommended to Jo by: Contains spoilers for Hex Hall High Points.
Still so very hilarious. I really want to have a picnic with Ms Hawkins so I can eat sandwiches and get sunburnt just sit and laugh with at her YA pop culture references and snarky wit. I can imagine her being great company. Sophie… still loved her, but not as much as in the first 3. Sophie… still loved her, but not as much as in the first one.
Vampire Ponies. Or… um, not really see low points. But still.. YAY for England. Rabid demons. A much better plot than the first one. Holy guacamole. Low Points. The whole love interest shenanigans… sigh. I really want to read a YA book where an unruly American teenager gets sent to a boarding school over here and when they get here they meet someone and hear them talk.
Not that I can mock anyone because of their accent…. I make Shaun Ryder sound like Stephen Fry. I miss Hex Hall. They have the potential to go either way.
You… you do? OK, good. Just in case. She was still consistent well, until the end… which surprised me a little. I think Ms Hawkins did a great job with keeping Sophie as the character we all fell in love with in the first book but still allowing her to develop naturally.
She did, however, lose some well-earned Brownie points with her simpering simperiness when it came to the boys in her life. Come on, Soph. Right well… in my mind Sophie has three options when it comes to love interest. A until right at the end when he realises that… Whoops, you might lose her better do something quick to make her desire you. Saying that though, out of the boys, I am rooting for Cal. Door Number Three. Poor Soph, even a werewolf and a vamp look pretty good right now and decide to become a lesbian with Jenna and raise vampire ponies on a ranch in Texas.
Did I mention Door Number Three is bright pink?! And you get a cupcake when you open the door. But you know..
Best Friend. Papa Mercer. OK, I loved Papa M. Theme Tune. Of… um, one song. But yeah… this is exactly how I feel about you.
Lots of love and broken plant pots, Sophie. Mmmm, I love the smell of wishful thinking in the morning early evening. Angst Level. These points are for the ending which was all dramatic and exciting and WHAT.
But yeah I'm not even sorry. Recommended For. People who have read and enjoyed Hex Hall. People who think all British people live in country manors and drink tea high. I mean… um, high tea. People who are looking for a way to travel into London while dodging the congestion charge. Demons that are looking for a rollicking beach read.

She prefers to die herself then to lose control and kill someone else. The only thing that's stopping her is her father who makes a deal with her. She will go to live with him in the summer to get to know him and her own powers better and if she still want to go through the removal after, he will let her. When they arrive at England, she finds out that she will spend time with alot more people than just h After Archer fleed and Sophie saw Alice kill Elodie, she decides to go through the removal.
When they arrive at England, she finds out that she will spend time with alot more people than just her father. His second in command and Mrs Casnoff sister, Lara, is greeting them and seems to be around alot.
She also get's to meet two other Demon teenagers, Nick and Daisy, who are living with the counsil for years and don't remember anything about their lives before that,they don't even remember how they became Demons since Sophie's family was supposed to be the only Demons that were there. After a night out in a club Sophie and the others come face to face with the "Eye" and more specific with Archer who tells her about all the mysterious things and dark magic that happens in Hex Hall and they try to find out what exactly is happening.
On top of all that Sophie and her father are trying to decipher the book who helds the page on how to create Demons, only to find it's page missing. When she gets into trouble in class, the Vandy sentences her and Archer to organize various magic items in a dank cellar, but in time the two become friendly and Sophie begins to fall for him despite her efforts not to do so.
The situation takes a turn when Chaston is found nearly dead from blood loss, apparently the result of two small puncture marks that resemble a vampire bite. This event is eerily like the death of another student, Holly, the previous year and Jenna is the prime suspect, although Sophie cannot believe she is capable of such an act.
Sophie's life gets more complicated when the ghost of a young girl turns out to be her own great-grandmother, Alice, who has returned from the grave and wants to help Sophie with her magic. Despite another attack on a student, things are looking up for Sophie after Alice's arrival and even Archer seems to be turning toward her. As they begin to make out in the cellar one night, Sophie unbuttons his shirt, but when she touches his chest, the tattoo of an eye appears.
It is the symbol of a powerful group that is set on destroying the Prodigium and Sophie realizes that Archer is a member, but he escapes through a window and disappears.I really think that a bEarding-school story would have been far more orginal than this "followed-all-baking-instructions-for-paranomal-young-adult" boarding-school girly-girl, let's-kiss-the-presumably-hot-and-bad-but-taken warlock, "three-mean-girls-shall-you-be" wi t chy-washy is.
What's worse, she has powers that threaten the lives of everyone she loves. Suddenly, I noticed a faint glow coming from somewhere behind me. Crazy for Young A Now, that is one good twist! The characters were all awesome, the setting was great, and the plot was exciting! Oh but this character! Hex Hall[ edit ] The story introduces Sophie Mercer as a witch who is ordered to attend school at Hex Hall after a long series of unfortunate spells that threaten to reveal the Prodigium world to the general human population, the spell that sent her to Hex Hall was a love spell that worked way to well.
The novel ends as Sophie steps through the doorway. I'm not sure why I find it so difficult to explain why I find something so enjoyable, but for whatever the reason I do.
