Twitter Tuesday - Rachel Hawkins

Okay, you guys already know how much we love Rachel Hawkins' HEX HALL series (check out our 5-star reviews for HEX HALL and DEMONGLASS), but late last week she posted an entire scene (and I mean entire...beginning, middle and end...not a snippet at all) because Sophie won the YA Heroine Tourney against none other than but one of our other all-time fave heroines, Luna Lovegood. And Rachel promised if Sophie won she'd write not one but two scenes -- one with Sophie and Archer and one with Sophie and Cal.

And because I imagine Archer looking like this, you can safely conclude that I'm Team Archer:

Here's the very beginning of "In Which Our Heroine Finds Herself In a Compromising Position in the Cellar. Again."

“Well, this is...awkward.”

I glared at Archer as I once again tried to yank my hand free from his. “ 'Hey, Mercer! Let's try on these enchanted rings! I'm sure putting pieces of magical jewelery on is nothing less than a totally stellar idea! After all,-'” I broke off to blow a hunk of hair out of my eyes, “it's never ended badly for anyone before!”

Now it was Archer's turn to scowl. “Okay, I would like the record to show that that was a truly terrible impression of me. And secondly-,'” he made an attempt at wiggling his fingers, but they stayed laced in mine- “you didn't have to put one on. There was no peer pressure happening here.”

Sighing, I braced my foot on one of the lower shelves and tried once again to untangle my fingers from Archer's. Our hands stayed fixed together, but Archer stumbled forward, practically falling on top of me. Flustered, I pushed him back with my other hand even as he grinned.

“You know, Mercer-”

“Shut up.”

“You don't know what I was going to say.”

“Something snarky that's also vaguely suggestive?”

Archer mulled that over for a bit. “Actually...yeah. Nice one.”

I rolled my eyes. “Awesome. Does your brain have other uses besides crafting the perfect comeback? Anything in there about these rings or how me might break the spell?”

I know you want to read the rest and it's right over here on Rachel's blog. Have you pre-ordered Spell Bound, yet? March 13th will be here before we know it.


  1. HELLLLLOOOO ARCHER! And Sophie I know WHY you choose this picture *snickers* I LOVE this scene! Can we beg Rachel to allow us to print it out and include it in the back of our books. LOL

  2. SQUEEE!!!! I love this series, thanks for the excerpt link! I love Sophie, and she totally deserved the win! I can't wait for Spell Bound and more of her snarky sarcastic humor... not to mention finding out what happens after all those ciff hangers at the end of Demonglass! ~ Jen @ A Book and a Latte

  3. Right there with you, Jen. I . CANNOT . WAIT .

  4. Wow. Team Archer!!!

    1. bookchilla - Always, but always...Team Archer. ;)

  5. This should have been part of hex hall

    1. Anon - Well I am an uber-fan of HH, so I second that thought. MOAR please. Always more. ;)
