Book Review #43: Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins

I rate this book 4.5 out of 5 stars.

(Finished Reading: 10/01/14
My 2nd book this year.)

Sophie is a demon who hasn’t yet learnt how to control her powers. She spends a school holiday with her best friend Jenny, who is a vampire. They stay with Sophie’s father who has rarely been around in Sophie’s childhood years.

The stay at a temporary headquarter, where they have the power to decide what happens to those who use their powers amongst humans which in turn expose their race and other supernatural beings to danger.

Archer Cross was once a member of the reform school that the girls attended. He’s now been named a traitor and is wanted and trailed to death for endangering the supernaturals and is believed to have joined the enemies, “The Eye”.

Sophie has feelings for the “wrong” boy whilst being betrothed to another man. She knows what she “should” do but her heart tells her otherwise.

I really enjoyed this 2nd book, surprisingly more than the first of the series. More relationship drama, more protectiveness and bad behaviour on Sophie’s account.

I love magic. With every good book I read, I fall deeper into the magical realm. Being pulled into the world where vampires, werewolves, fairies, witches and demons exist amongst humans.

Well done Rachel Hawkins, a highly recommended book. One of the reasons I gave 4.5 stars was because the 2nd book hasn’t essentially ended. It is unfair to leave a book the way this one has ended as you are forced to read the next book. I’d much prefer if book 2 was just super long.
