Win HEX HALL & DEMONGLASS by Rachel Hawkins!

Welcome to today's tour stop to celebrate the release of Rachel Hawkin's follow up novel to Hex Hall entitled Demonglass! As part of today's stop, one lucky winner will receive a set of both finished books. Details below. Good luck!

Hex Hall (Hex Hall, #1)

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 tagalong 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.

As a series of blood-curdling mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her.
Demonglass (Hex Hall, #2)

Sophie Mercer thought she was a witch.

That was the whole reason she was sent to Hex Hall, a reform school for delinquent Prodigium (aka witches, shapeshifters, and fairies). But that was before she discovered the family secret, and that her hot crush, Archer Cross, is an agent for The Eye, a group bent on wiping Prodigium off the face of the earth.

Turns out, Sophie’s a demon, one of only two in the world—the other being her father. What’s worse, she has powers that threaten the lives of everyone she loves. Which is precisely why Sophie decides she must go to London for the Removal, a dangerous procedure that will destroy her powers.

But once Sophie arrives she makes a shocking discovery. Her new friends? They’re demons too. Meaning someone is raising them in secret with creepy plans to use their powers, and probably not for good. Meanwhile, The Eye is set on hunting Sophie down, and they’re using Archer to do it. But it’s not like she has feelings for him anymore. Does she?

Official Rules:
1.You must be 13 year or older to enter.
2. Open to entrants with a valid U.S. or Canadian mailing address only. 
3. Entries must be received by Midnight EST on March 30th 2011

Tina said...

I haven't read the series yet so I'm not sure what super powers are on the table. But, if I had to choose ... I guess witch. I could probably do spells and change my powers.

If I'm having to pick a creature that goes to the school, then I would want to be a werewolf. If I could just pick any superpower I want, then I'd want to be able to time-travel!

When one mentions powers I tend to think superheroes, but I think I would definitely go for being telekinetic/telepathic (very handy).

I'm a nurse so healing abilities would be nice. Also, I've always wanted the power of telekinesis. Thanks for the giveaway!


Jessica Rose said...

It's kinda tough to choose between Vampire and Shapeshifter BUT if I had to choose I'd have to say Shapeshifter. I think it would be kinda nice to be able to change how you appear and "escape" the drama and problems of your original self for a little while.

I would love to be able to do many things like Sophie but i would LOVE to have the power to have any book i would love to read at my fingertips. And i would LOVE to read this book, ive seen the ad for hex hall in a magazine and fell in love with the summary and i bought the book. I took me about two days to read it because i couldn't take my eyes from it. I would stay up till 3 o'clock on school days just to read it. I also reread this book 4 times (no joke) it was amazing and i think the Hex Hall 2 "Demon Glass" will be much better than my favorite book Hex Hall. I would love it read, please please please please please pleas please pleas please please please please please please please please.... give me a chance to read it :)

Melissa said...

i would choose to have all super powers in the world- can i do that?
if a creature attending hex hall i would either choose witch or shape shifter still not to sure. but speciffically for super powers i would go with either mind reading ( i know what ur thinking, so twilight) telapathic or telikinis

Juliana L. Brandt said...

I have always thought, if I could have any super power it would be to fly. It's not exciting but it would be fun and it wouldn't encroach on other people.

~The Book Pixie said...

Teleportation, hands down. I get the feeling it's the only way I'd ever really get to see the world and since I'm an amateur photographer, I could take my camera anywhere!
