Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkings Book Review

edition language  English
original title  Hex Hall
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.
 My Review -

Let me start by saying that the cover sells the book alone.  Many times I caught myself grabbing the book upside down.  Love the artwork.

Book One from the series is one of the best books I have read in a long time. I absolutely love witches and the fact that this book was about them caught my attention.  Hex Hall has witches and so much more! I was not able to put down the book until I read the last page.

Sophie is a teenage witch and just like any other normal teenager has a hard time fitting in.  While trying to help a suffering friend she casts a spell that goes terribly wrong in front of the whole school.  She is sentenced to Hecate High School as school for prodigium students that had problems living among humans.

It is a captivating story with evil witches, love interest, suspense and unexpected twists and turns.
