Review - The Hex Hall Series by Rachel Hawkins

Hey Y'all,

Today I'm reviewing the first three books in the Hex Hall series by Rachel Hawkins.


On to the review!

Summary from Wikipedia:

Hex Hall is a best-selling trilogy of young-adult paranormal romance novels by American author Rachel Hawkins. The trilogy is centered around Sophie Mercer, a sixteen-year-old witch who is sent to Hecate Hall (nicknamed "Hex Hall"), a boarding school for magical beings, after a string of disastrous spells gone wrong. While there, she gets caught up in the on-going war between the Prodigium and the human organizations who seek to eradicate them from the world.


I'll admit that based on cover alone, I thought that this series might be more middle-grade than YA. Happily, I was wrong. Sophie is wonderfully snarky and a terrific main character. A lot of times you get an excellent main character but it's a bit of a downer if the rest of the characters don't meet your expectations. Not so in the Hex Hall series. Hawkins has done a great job of rounding out the story with creepy settings and excellent supporting characters in Archer, Jenna, Cal, Elodie, etc. Out of the three books, I'd say that Demonglass, the second book, was my favorite overall, but be sure you've got the third book at hand because it does end in a cliffhanger! 

4/5 Stars Overall
