Just as Sophie Mercer has come to accept her extraordinary magical powers as a demon, the Prodigium Council strips them away. Now Sophie is defenseless, alone, and at the mercy of her sworn enemies—the Brannicks, a family of warrior women who hunt down the Prodigium. Or at least that’s what Sophie thinks, until she makes a surprising discovery. The Brannicks know an epic war is coming, and they believe Sophie is the only one powerful enough to stop the world from ending. But without her magic, Sophie isn’t as confident. Sophie’s bound for one hell of a ride—can she get her powers back before it’s too late?Hex Hall Spin-off!
There is a huge lost in this book. This person was always a bit on the background, but still managed to capture a piece of my heart. It’s terrible that it happened, but it was for a good cause.
Friendship plays a big part in this story and I like that. You always need someone in a battle and Sophie is depending on the people around her. And those people are fantastic. Her best friend Jenna, who supported her from the beginning. I think that their friendship is one of the best I’ve read about so far. They have this special connection going on. Her new made friends at The Brannicks, one of the most unsuspected people and of course her mother. She is tough! You can see where Sophie got her awesomeness from.
Like I said before, this book is filled with action. Things are spinning out of control and their world is soon collapsing into darkness. The demons are loose and they form a big danger. There is this constant tension and you’re just waiting for the big moment. The plot went a bit too fast for my taste, but I was still satisfied with the ending.
