Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins - ADVISABLE

Hawkins, Rachel Demonglass (Hex Hall #2), 359 p. Hyperion (Disney), 2011.  Sophie has had a pretty intense year at Hex Hall, but summer isn’t going to be any better.  The Dad she has never met has come to take her to England for the summer – into Thorne Abbey – the Council headquarters.  Surprises abound for Sophie.  Not only is she a demon (thanks Dad), she is also betrothed to Cal (since birth, basically) and she and her dad are not the only demons.  Not only has someone else has been creating demons, but the Eye is operating pretty heavily in England and Archer Cross has been seen close by.  Sophie has a full on mess on her hands.  I really like Sophie, but this is at least third series I am currently reading that has almost the exact same basic story plot:  Girl, boarding school, magic powers, secret enemies, hot guy as the adversary/love interest.  Oh, I like them – I’m just starting to confuse them.  And what is with the cat on the cover?  Again?  No mention of cats in the books – except that Sophie doesn’t like them.  Weird.  MS, HS – ADVISABLE.
