Three years ago, Sophie Mercer discovered that she is a witch. Her non-gifted mother has been supportive, consulting Sophie’s estranged father a 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 exiles her to “Hex Hall”, an isolated reform school for wayward Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, fairies, and shape-shifters.
By the end of her first day, Sophie has three new enemies, a futile crush on a warlock, a tagalong ghost, and a vampire roommate. Worse, Sophie soon learns that an unknown predator has been attacking students. As a series of blood-curdling mysteries converges, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her.

I turned to leave, but the door slammed shut inches from my face. Suddenly,
a wind seemed to blow through the room and the pictures on the walls rattled.
When I turned back to the girls, all three of them were smiling at me, their hair
rippling around their faces like they were underwater.
The one lamp in the room fl ickered and then went out. I could just make out
slivery traces of light passing under their skin, like mercury. Even their eyes were
glowing. As I watched, the girls levitated, the tips of their Hecate Hall–issue
loafers barely brushing the mossy carpet. Now they weren’t homecoming queens
or supermodels—they were witches, and very dangerous ones at that.
Even as I fought the urge to fall to my knees and throw my hands over my
head, I was wondering, was this what I was capable of?
