Series: Hex Hall #1
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.
Sophie Mercer is sent to a reform school for Prodigium after she cast a spell at her prom that doesn't go as planned. While at Hex Hall, Sophie gains enemies, a vampire friend, and a crush. Mysteries unravel and Sophie realizes that she may be in danger. A secret society is looking to destroy her . . .
I REALLY liked this book. That may be because it's a book about witches. I have always loved witches. When I was a kid I wished that I was one. Who doesn't want powers? Who doesn't want to be able to say the magic words and your room cleans itself? I have always been fascinated by witches. But that's not the only reason I liked this book. I really liked Sophie. She has a sarcastic sense of humor and is very witty. I'm like that and I really like that in a person. It brought humor into the story.
This is a really fastpaced and easy read. I was never bored and the plot never moved too slow. So if you're looking for a light and fun read full of magic, this book is for you. I just know that I need to find out what happens next in the life of Sophie Mercer. Luckily I already have the second book on my shelf waiting for me!
