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.
I have to say, after seeing nothing but good reviews and 5 star ratings, I was expecting something great. Thankfully, Hex Hall was just that and much more.
I’m kind of a sucker for witches so from the beginning I knew this was a book that had to be moved up my TBR pile. :)
While the story was light and fun, it still had the mystery aspect and even a little suspense. I loved the history and background surrounding Hecate (not to mention the very visual scene after Sophie’s first dinner-- so cool!). My favorite character (besides Sophie) definitely had to be Archer. I loved their chemistry together and in every scene they never failed to make me smile. Jenna was also great and I loved that the vampires were actually looked at as the bad guys for once.
This was definitely a good start to what looks to me like an amazing series! I do kind of wish I waited a little longer to read this though, so the wait for book 2 will be a little more bearable. :(
Definitely recommended to everyone!!!
