Summary

Review Excerpts

"Cris Dukehart provides believable depth to Sophie and her high school cohorts. A fun, light [listen] recommended for YA collections and those who enjoy the works of Cassandra Clare, Maggie Steifvater, and others in the genre." ---Library Journal Audio Review

"Cris Dukehart handles the school's cast of characters deftly.…She conveys the book's teen appeal with youthful voices." ---AudioFile

"The plot twists and Dukehart's snappy reading will keep listeners plugged into this supernatural romp." ---Booklist Audio Review

"The story is well paced and plotted with tween-friendly humor and well-developed characters." ---Publishers Weekly

"Veronica Mars meets Percy Jackson and the Olympians in an appealing, if not groundbreaking, series opener." ---Kirkus

"Many clever touches (vampire Lord Byron teaches literature), spot-on depictions of classic teen situations (crushing on the queen bee's boyfriend), and an ending that leaves you hanging will have readers grabbing for the sequel." ---Booklist

Summary

On her twelfth birthday, Sophie Mercer discovered that she was a witch. Three bumpy years later, after a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, she's exiled to Hex Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, faeries, and shapeshifters.

By the end of her first day, 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 on campus. Then, when a mysterious predator begins attacking students, and Sophie's only friend is the number-one suspect, a horrifying plot begins to surface. Soon, Sophie is preparing for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her.
