Waiting on Wednesday - Demonglass

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Demonglass (Hex Hall #2) by Rachel Hawkins
Publisher:  Hyperion Books
Publication Date:  March 1, 2011

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?  (Summary taken from Goodreads)

As much as I like the cover of  Hex Hall, I love Demonglass's cover.  Sophie looks quite sassy here, in a "Bring It...I'm ready for anything you're going to throw at me" kind of way.  I like that the designer carried over some of the elements, so that it's obvious that the books are part of a series, but at the same time you can easily tell which book is which.  And of course, I can't wait to read more about Sophie's family. And Archer, we can't forget about him...definitely looking forward to more scenes with Sophie and Archer.
What are you "waiting on" this Wednesday?
