So I have decided to do my very first review and what better way then to showcase a new book and a new author. Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins I picked up on Tuesday and took the chance to enjoy a little magic!
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 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 clearly not your average teenager, with powers that go wrong she is forced to go to a school with misfits. What a brilliant and yet basic concept. Very well written, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I was drunk with magic and couldn't help but continue to read. Had I not had to work I would have finished it the day I got it, but I had to have a little self control. Rachel Hawkins is brilliant and I think if anyone wants an excellent read of magic, love and teenage problems this is certainly the book for you!!!
4 out of 5, the writing was great, you could feel her pain, though giving 5 would just seem cliche (plus I give ratings away loosely because anything I'd rate I tend to love!!!)I look forward to the next installment of the Hex Hall Series!
Next review will be Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
