Review: Demonglass


It's summer break, and Sophie is going to spend it with her Dad and Jenna in England. Which just happens to be where Archer is. Sadly, I didn't see the location switch. It felt like Sophie was in school again, with most of the book, taking place inside closed quarters.

A more fast pace rhythm would have come in handy. Sophie is such a rebellious and strong-willed character, that I was hoping she would get into a lot more trouble. Instead we meet a group of characters that will remain underdeveloped, like Nick and Daisy; hurt feelings without just cause; and an ending that will make your jaw drop and say ''she did not just do that!''

On the plus side, seeing Sophie try to establish a relationship with her Dad was bittersweet.

Hopefully, book number three heightens the stakes.
