Hex Hall by Rachel Hakins
Get It | Add It
Supernatural/Paranormal, 323 pages
Published March 2nd 2010 by Disney-Hyperion

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.

This one gets a total BEACH READS stamp of approval.

  1. AGREED with all of this! Just pure fun! I was lucky enough to read HH right before DG came out...but then had to wait for SB!! I still haven't read the new series yet, eep!

    Such fun!

  2. Sonia - it IS fun!

    Bonnie - her new series is a spinoff of this one, and though I think this was a stronger first book, they were both super fun, and School Spirits had a lot going on in it - lots of room for series growth!

  3. Yes to all of this! I KNEW you would love this one since you enjoyed School Spirits. I really did as well, but there's just something about Sophie's awkward humor that I just love and kept me coming back for more. This series has no right to be as good as it is given the story, but I don't even care how she does it, because Rachel Hawkins is a marvel at making me read a book in one sitting and love every minute of it.

  4. That is EXACTLY it, Heidi! It has no business being as enjoyable as it is, but damn, is it ever?! She's so super engaging!


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
