Three years ago, Sophie Mercer discovered that she was a witch. It’s gotten her into a few scrapes. Her non-gifted mother has been as supportive as possible, consulting Sophie’s estranged father–an elusive European warlock–only when necessary. But when Sophie attracts too much human attention for a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, it’s her dad who decides her punishment: exile to Hex Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, faeries, and shapeshifters.
By the end of her first day among fellow freak-teens, Sophie has quite a scorecard: three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a futile crush on a gorgeous warlock, a creepy tagalong ghost, and a new roommate who happens to be the most hated person and only vampire student on campus. Worse, Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her only friend is the number-one suspect.
As a series of blood-curdling mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her.
I’ve been wanting to read this book for forever it seems like, so when I signed up for the Something Wicked Comes Event I knew this would be the perfect book to review. Hex Hall was funny, light hearted, and was just an all around good read! I really enjoyed reading this book!
There was so many wonderful characters in this story. I thought the main character, Sophie, was hilarious! She cracked me up! I don’t think I’ve ever laughed out loud so many times while reading a book before. Also, just like at any other school, there was a group of mean girls and man, where they mean especially Elodie. Then there was Archer Cross aka Sophie’s crush aka Elodie’s boyfriend who was definitely a swoon worthy male. I could totally see why pretty much every girl at Hex Hall had a thing for him!
This book had tons of twist and turns, and it constantly kept me guessing. I could not figure out who the bad guy was and that usually never happens. I almost always have some idea who it is. This time around though, I just could not figure it out!
Overall, I’d say Hex Hall was a very enjoyable read and I’ll definitely be reading the other two books in this series to see how this story continues!
