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.
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.
Hex Hall was a great Paranormal YA! I loved Sophie's thoughts, and her snark, it was awesome, and it really brought her to life for me. It was funny, quirky, and a joy to read. Glad that I did.
I enjoyed the story, and the romances. They were budding, and they were blooming. And the jealously! Pure cat fights, but words instead of fists and nails. Awesome!
I liked the creation myth, since it's different from what's out there, and the mythological creatures the author chose to have in her world, I thought that the choices complemented each other.
All in all, a very good book, and I highly recommend it to anyone who reads YA, or just likes a light-dark novel!
