Hex Hall series

Hex Hall, Demonglass, Spell Bound
Author: Rachel HawkinsRating: 4 stars average
Contains Spoilers

Sophie Mercer is the typical sarcastic, misunderstood teenager. The issue is she's a witch who has never met her father. After casting a spell on prom night and causing chaos, Sophie's father sends her off to a private reform school for the supernatural aka Prodigum. The troublemakers sent there include werewolves, shapeshifters, warlocks, vampires and faeries. Sophie's world is immediately turned upside down. Obviously, Hex Hall is not all that it appears to be.
A ghost, who is much closer to Sophie than she realizes, only shows herself to haunt Sophie. Sophie befriends her roommate, who is a vampire and accused of attacking students. Not only is Sophie compelled to clear her friend's name but she also makes enemies with the school bad boy and his girlfriend, who comes from the mean girl clique.
In the following two books we see character development with Sophie, her family and friends. The danger and action thicken. Hex Hall is the founding point for the series but soon we see Sophie travel overseas to battle evil and family drama. There's more to her human mother and warlock father than meets the eye. The predator attacking students soon evolves into something more complex involving a dangerous society, The Eye, hellbent on killing all Prodigum. As for the inevitable love triangle, Sophie is torn between a warlock and an Eye member. This series is addictive and fun. It gets tedious at times and the ending is disappointing but the journey is well worth it.
