Sophie Mercer was a funny character. I felt a lot of second hand embarrassment from her, but it's okay. She's a protagonist that I like, which is good. She has a very determined personality and isn't willing to give up on her beliefs. A true rebel at heart.
Archer is a cutie. He's funny and sweet and can weird magic well. He's definitely a keeper. Though, it took a while for me to like him since his name is Archer and for some reason I don't find that name too attractive. (Sorry Archers reading this)
There are two big plot twists that happen in this story. The first I was not expecting and the second I was. Not entirely expecting what happened but something along the lines of it.
I'm giving this book a 7/10 stars. It was a really fun read. Especially since I love to read about supernatural beings, as you could probably tell from the other books I've read.
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 tag-along 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.
