To be honest Demonglass was a much more enjoyable installment of the fantasy trilogy. I liked Nick and Daisy, one of the two new characters of the book, and Hawkins added this thing about (OOH SPOILAHS) Nick looking like Sophie's boyfriend Archer. At first I thought this was some kind of random saying so that the readers will get intrigued to buy the next novel. But when I read the third and last book (Spell Bound) it was... not what I had expected... OKAY SO ANYWHO I liked the plot better here, though it's darker than Hex Hall, the spellbinding sequel put me in a standstill and made me want to buy Spell Bound immediately (alas, I had to wait one boring year for it to be published).
