My Feelings:

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.

My Review:
Hex Hall is a book that I devoured in a couple hours while waiting for my mother to arrive from work. I adored Hex Hall, indeed, I did.

Sophie is a fun character. I liked her from the start. At first I thought oh, wow cliché, a popular clique where Sophie wants to be part of. But I’m glad to say that she wasn’t like those other girls. She trusted her own instincts and made the choices she was comfortable with. I also liked her funny comments and the way she thought.

I also liked Archer. The romance wasn’t quite there, but I did feel something between them. Nothing too deep, just something familiar to a crush.

The plot was great. The author knows how to entertain a reader. There is suspense, action, awesome spells (there could have been more) and the story took a lot of directions to keep me surprisingly unaware what would happened next.

Hex Hall is a wonderful debut novel that kept me guessing till the end. I cannot wait to read the sequel next year!

The book sounds like I should give it a try.
The cover artist did watch 'The Craft' a couple of times too many though. :-p
