"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is Demonglass, the sequel to Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins. I really enjoyed Hex Hall which I reviewed here and it still remains the one YA book with the most funniest and memorable line EVER from it. Basically, Sophie is tucked up in bed and some girls come and wake her up to go on some sort of initiation/adventure and say to her something along the lines of "We just need to hear five words from you" and Sophie replies with the best line EVER..."Are you freaking kidding me?". BRILLIANT. So yeah, I'm definitely looking forward to reading this and laughing my socks off as I love Rachel's sense of humour. Here is the Goodreads description for Demonglass:
"Sophie Mercer thought she was a witch.
That was the whole reason she was sent to Hex Hall, a reform school for delinquent Prodigium (aka witches, shapeshifters, and fairies). But that was before she discovered the family secret, and that her hot crush, Archer Cross, is an agent for The Eye, a group bent on wiping Prodigium off the face of the earth.
Turns out, Sophie’s a demon, one of only two in the world—the other being her father. What’s worse, she has powers that threaten the lives of everyone she loves. Which is precisely why Sophie decides she must go to London for the Removal, a dangerous procedure that will destroy her powers.
But once Sophie arrives she makes a shocking discovery. Her new friends? They’re demons too. Meaning someone is raising them in secret with creepy plans to use their powers, and probably not for good. Meanwhile, The Eye is set on hunting Sophie down, and they’re using Archer to do it. But it’s not like she has feelings for him anymore. Does she?"
OMG I HOPE SHE DOES is my answer to that! Can't wait for a bit more of sexy Archer. Lets talk cover love - I LOVE the cover and of course I have to get the US hardback to match my copy of Hex Hall. It's not that I don't like the UK covers, I just prefer the US ones. I don't think I'll be able to get hold of an ARC for this so I've signed up for a book tour. I just hope it gets to me before release date! Demonglass is released in February, 2011.
So, is this on your wish list? What else are you waiting on?
