Sophie Mercer thought she was a witch.
That was the whole reason she was sent to Hex Hall, a reform school for delinquent Prodigium (aka witches, shapeshifters, and fairies). But that was before she discovered the family secret, and that her hot crush, Archer Cross, is an agent for The Eye, a group bent on wiping Prodigium off the face of the earth.
Turns out, Sophie’s a demon, one of only two in the world—the other being her father. What’s worse, she has powers that threaten the lives of everyone she loves. Which is precisely why Sophie decides she must go to London for the Removal, a dangerous procedure that will destroy her powers.
But once Sophie arrives she makes a shocking discovery. Her new friends? They’re demons too. Meaning someone is raising them in secret with creepy plans to use their powers, and probably not for good. Meanwhile, The Eye is set on hunting Sophie down, and they’re using Archer to do it. But it’s not like she has feelings for him anymore. Does she?

Discovering she’s a demon was priceless, but I guess is understanding with all the secrecy and the reasons her family was so worried about her spells. But I liked her father and even enjoy her month of vacation in London. I though it was extreme to get a Removal so early on live, but after everything that happened on hex hall I get her.
I liked dear old daddy and the way he tried to help her and teach at the same time. It was fun to see the chaos these two could create together, but dangerous times also made her father work to understand why there are more demons being created.
Also, fun part: remember Archer? The boy Sophie had a crush on during her first year in Hex Hall? He’s back and he really works for The Eye, so reasons are definitely kill first question later because things are getting more strange lately than ever.
I never saw that person as the bad guy, but I totally understand the appeal and why everyone was on the secret except Sophie and her father.
