What a fun, enjoyable read! I was a little weary of this book at first because I had read such good things about it, but at the same time I wasn’t sure I’d be able to get into a paranormal-fantasy galore book… and I was still reeling from the fae world in The Iron King. Well, I had nothing to worry about!
Hex Hall is a school for the Prodigium – witches, warlocks, shape-shifters, werewolves, faeires, ghosts, and you-name-it set somewhere near Savannah, GA. It’s a murder mystery with a twist I have to admit, I didn’t see coming, even though I thought parts of it were fairly predictable. I quickly liked Sophie, the protagonist. She’s the “girl next door” with unrefined powers and full of witty jokes and come-backs. I had a few laugh out loud moments. I really enjoyed reading this book and can not wait to read the rest of the series!
