Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

Hex Hall (Hex Hall #1)
Rachel Hawkins
Published March 2nd 2010 by Hyperion Book CH
Genres:  Young Adult, Fantasy, Paranormal, Magic


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 tag-along 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.

My Thoughts

Sophie does a love spell and it goes terribly wrong.  She is punished and is being sent Hecate Acedamy, where other people like her go to school.  Sophie is a witch and her roommate is the only vampire at the school.  When three witches mysteriously die or almost die, the school becomes very invested in what is going on!  

I liked all the different supernatural elements.  I liked how witches, vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters and faeries were all incorporated into this book.  I liked that they all went to a boarding school together, definitely makes it a very interesting school.  

I kinda wish there was a little bit more character development.  Like I wanted to know more about Sophie and her dad.  Maybe, I will find out more in the next books in the series.  The writing was really simplest, which can be good but I wanted more dept.

I really liked the ending though, it was really good twist to the whole story.  I am curious to find out what will happen with Sophie.  I am definitely going to continue on in the series.
