Teaser Tuesday (1): Demonglass


Teaser Tuesday comes from MizB at Should Be Reading and is open to anyone. There are a few basic rules to this, though, in order to participate in this meme:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!
And that's really all there is to it... Now, that we've got all of that covered, I'd like to reveal my teasers for this week...

Demonglass (Hex Hall #2) by Rachel Hawkins
Release Date: March 1, 2011
Publisher: Hyperion Books CH
Pages: 359

"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?"

Here are my teasers:
"'Why did you want to bring Cal?' I asked.
Dad's fingers strayed to his suit pocket again. 'Council business, mostly. Alexander's powers are unique, so we'd like to interview him, possibly run a few tests.'
I didn't like the sound of that, and something told me Cal wouldn't either.
'And it will give the two of you a chance to get to know one another better,' Dad continued.
A sense of dread slowly began creeping up my spine. 'Cal and I know each other well enough,' I said. 'Why would would I want to know him better?'" (18 |359).
"Anyone who could block Prodigium Defense moves was a lot more dangerous than some random pervert. I was about to try Skill Fifteen, which involved both breaking his nose and potentially ending his chances of ever having kids, when my captor bent down and whispered in my ear, 'Don't even think about it, Mercer'" (130 | 359).
