“Hailed as “impossible to put down,” the Hex Hall series has both critics and teens cheering. With a winning combination of romance, action, magic and humor, this third volume will leave readers enchanted.

Just as Sophie Mercer has come to accept her extraordinary magical powers as a demon, the Prodigium Council strips them away. Now Sophie is defenseless, alone, and at the mercy of her sworn enemies—the Brannicks, a family of warrior women who hunt down the Prodigium. Or at least that’s what Sophie thinks, until she makes a surprising discovery. The Brannicks know an epic war is coming, and they believe Sophie is the only one powerful enough to stop the world from ending. But without her magic, Sophie isn’t as confident.

Sophie’s bound for one hell of a ride—can she get her powers back before it’s too late?”


I finished reading this book last night, and I needed to calm down before I write a review. (This contains few spoilers, so watch out!). I’m too depressed, too sad, and too frustrated. I know I should have not taken this book so personally, but I’ve grown to really like Cal, and it has hurt me damn much on what has happened to him. He didn’t deserve it. It was too much. I hate Hawkins for doing it to him, she didn’t even give him a chance to be happy. And I also hate myself because I’m so affected. I know, this is not about Sophie and Archer since he’s out of the picture already, but hey, why did he has to die? I don’t really get the point there. Anyway, I was also hoping that Hawkins will right a little love story between Cal and Elodie, but no! It didn’t happen! Just a slight comment from Elodie about making Cal change his mind about her.

Yeah, this whole review is all about Cal, and not about the book, but I hope you’ll understand my sentiments and I’m seriously grieving right now. It’ll take me a whole bunch of happy books to cheer up. Maybe if I’m not this sad anymore, I can give a proper review. LOL!
