What the community says about Hex Hall
- "This was a book that I was highly anticipating even before I knew what it was about. I loved the title and couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I finally got my copy. I devoured it in about a day, and absolutely loved it. Hex Hall was an exciting read with a mystery involved. It also has a wonderful "vampire, witches and werewolves oh my" factor, faeries too. Ms. Hawkins has created a fun, and vibrant world. The twists and turns of the story will keep your turning the page. There was a bit of a cliffhanger at the end of the book, so I'm really looking forward to see what is going to happen with Sophie.""Although this may encase the all too familiar secret- witch plot, it will appeal more intensely to an audience who may have dealt with out-casting. This protagonist goes through multiple events under the stress of a teen, while dealing with supernatural matters. "

- "Teenage years tends to be really special times when one grows up and starts reflecting upon those years and how one was very naive and clear-headed. The story of Sophie in Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins, a teenage character who is different than most people around her, is very representative of young ladies and accurately depicts the implicit emotional struggles. What I found fascinating about the events that are meant to be fiction and made up, is the notion that these events could somewhat be translated to our inner fights, fights with our inner demons in our heads that pertain to us starting from teenage years to adult ages. Those demons in our heads always try to demean our emotions and belittle our self-esteem. Rachel Hawkins is truly marvelous is capturing these phenomena in metaphorical sense through the life of Sophie""This was an okay reading experience with the story being somewhat lacking of character story telling. I think the main character Sophie is troubled and she finds her way out of it. I like the setting and think the development of the story was good. Now I await the next book in this series. "
- "This story is an interesting take on the teenage witch trope. After a misadventure the protagonist finds herself attending a magical reform school with werewolves faeries, vampires, and demons. The rules and limitations of this world lends itself to some absurd situations, and the protagonist is refreshingly witty. A great pickup for young readers.""While I'm a little annoyed that they call male witches "warlocks," for a "magic school" type book, this one isn't so bad. If you like supernatural fiction and witchcraft, and are the sort of person who liked things like The Craft, Buffy, Charmed, Halloween Town, or even Winx Club, this might be something you'd enjoy."
- ""Hex Hall" is a novel about boarding school. I found myself getting through the pages quickly, and liking the fact that on every page there's some kind of action. This is a lighthearted book that aims to please people who want more of an afternoon read. I enjoyed it! I recommend this book."
- "Books set in high school could fill many library shelves. There are classics going back half a century if not more. This book, Hex, is one I hadn't heard of but apparently it has highly favorable reviews on Amazon. While somewhat a cliched story, a teenage witch, the author must be good at pivoting from the typical fare as this has very high reviews from a wide-range of reviewers. "
- "I needed a book to read that was like the Lux series I just finished. I found Hex Hall. My best friend recommended it to me, in fact. It's the first book in the Rachel Hawkins' fantasy and adventure series. It's all about a teenage girl who goes to a school for people with powers, much like the X-Men, which I also LOVE. This is a great book and really fun. Check it out!"
