It doesn't disappoint, in fact-- Ms. Hawkins never disappoints. <3NEW UPDATE GUYS. 15th February, 2013!Rachel gives us a new sneak peek of School Spirits!Before [...]

    2. 3.5 stars The story about Prodigium and Brannicks from the enjoyable Hex Hall series continues in this book but this time, Isolde or “Izzy”, Sophie’s (the famous Sophie of Hex Hall series) cousin becomes the heroine.Izzy is a trained assassin of dangerous otherworldly creatures and was born to do nothing but rid the world of evil. Nothing seems to scare her except uhm, high school. Can’t blame the poor girl. Lol. Unluckily, Izzy has to immerse herself in Mary Evans High School or MEH (lo [...]

    3. 3.5 stars Confession time: as someone who is still suffering from Archer withdrawals a big fan of the first two Hex Hall books, I was a little nervous about the prospect of a spinoff series. I'm happy to report that School Spirits finds the author back in fine form, this time with a character that was introduced in Spell Bound.Remember the girl who talked to the Torin, the guy stuck in the mirror? Izzy Brannick is now fifteen, and her family has a long history as hunters of supernatural creature [...]

    4. Despite my disappointment with the last Hex Hall book, Spell Bound, that series still belongs to one of my absolute favorites. Why? Well, I can only name a handful of books that have made me feel fluffy and warm inside, and at the same time make me guffaw in laughter while being on the edge of my seat.Rachel Hawkins' writing and characters has never failed to bring a smile in my face and I absolutely love it. And thus, despite previous disappointments, I was really looking forward for this spin- [...]

    5. THE REVIEWWhy this book?I liked Rachel Hawkins Hex Hall Trilogy What I thoughtThis book leaves you wanting more, there’s so much left unresolved. That being said I really enjoyed this book, the characters were great, I loved Dex. The plot was fun and entertaining. It was interesting seeing Izzy living in the real world. The funniest part was when she figured out that girls go the bathroom together. My ex used to make fun of me for that alot lol. It needed more romance but what we got was sweet [...]

    6. A 3.5 star rating for sure! It missed that snazz of Sophie's sarcastic humor, but it still had that action and intrigue that I love in Rachel Hawkin's writing style. School Spirits had that touch of silly humor as readers will see right in the beginning in the first chapter. The story starts after a chapter or so with Izzy taking a turn for new, when she attends high school in order to solve a mystery and take care of it the Brannick way! To intrigue you, the mystery is that a ghost is slowly tr [...]

    7. Hiii remember this series?? I'm pretty sure here are other Hex Hall fans There is the Hex Hall trilogy and this is the first book of the spin-off series but what the fuck happened!!!!??? This book was fabulous so why hasn't it been continued? And the author is nowhere active on social media but she has other series she's writing. Won't she ever come back to this please does anybody know!???? After 5 years it's still driving me fucking crazy !!!!! UGH WHY ON EARTH WOULDN'T YOU THESE BOOKS ARE MEG [...]

    8. This book is fabulous! The funny thing isI thought this was the first book of the Hex Hall series,haha! But when I started flipping through the pages, I suddenly couldn't stop.That's when I thought I'm glad I've mistaken this book to Hex Hall.^^This is a story of a young monster fighter who has a ghost haunting mission in a high school.And learning to manage high school for the first time, Isolde(Izzy)the main character of the story met a few friends who all happened to be a PMS(Paranormal Manag [...]

    9. Actual rating: 2.5 starsBecause of my love for Rachel Hawkins' Hex Hall series, I dived into this book fully expecting to be blown away. But it didn't happen. School Spirits is extremely different from Hex Hall. While HH was a book that made me crack up constantly, SS was a book a lot more serious. Even though it does contain some jokes in the book, they all failed on me. The jokes felt forced, and it felt like the author was trying too hard to make you laugh, but failed.I'm going to divide this [...]

    10. 3.5 stars - I was happy with School Spirits but had to round down because I think book 1 of Hex Hall was just a little bit better.If you took the offbeat humor from Hex Hall and incorporated elements from Snow White (talking mirror), Vampire Academy (dreamwalking), and Anna Dressed in Blood (ghost hunting), you'll end up with the peculiar formula for School Spirits.The rest of the day passed uneventfully. I guess after you've beaten someone up with a dodgeball and flirted with a monster, most an [...]

    11. I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I rate this book 4.5 stars.I'd been meaning to read a book by Rachel Hawkins as people have loved her Hex Hall series (still need to read that), and boy, am I glad I did! School Spirits centers on Isolde Brannick, who is one of the few remaining evil hunters in the world. Little does she know that fate will have her going to high school for the very first time. The job is this-- to rid the school of a menacing ghost that has b [...]

    12. YAHOOOOO! thank u,racheal hawkins!!i felt unsatisfied by just 3 books.The ideal comparison 4 this series shall b "bloodlines"the vampire academy spinoff was out just 8 months after original and was almost as good. it would be very interesting to see what happens in this series! so again, THANK YOU!if some fans feel it doesnt live up to original, it is mistake 2 make a spin off BLAH BLAH BLAHthen i just want to tell you-GO TO HELL! I AM REALLY ANTICIPATING THIS!update.ank u all 4 liking this simp [...]

    13. We all must have either heard of or read Rachel Hawkins' Hex Hall series. That being said, the main characters Miss Hawkins had created in that series, Sophie, ended up becoming one of my most admired and favorite "bookish" role models/heroines for life. Now, let's go down one, two, or five levels from that awesomeness and we arrive at School Spirits. I'm not saying I didn't enjoy this book but I recommend not going into this book with your 'spirits' set high (haha, you see what I did there?). I [...]

    14. Also find this review on Don't Stop Readin'I’d give this 3 stars, because it wasn’tthatbad, (but yeah, it was pretty bad) – BUT I had givenSpellboundandDemonglass3 stars and when comparedSchool Spiritsto them, it deserves nothing more than 2.Like I said, this waspretty bad.First of all, Izzy wasn’t even slightly cool. She was a badass, but a boring badass, and what use it that? We all loved Sophie inHex Hallbecause she was soooo funny but its like Izzy doesn’t even know what humor mean [...]

    15. Why OH Why does it have to be MAY Hawkins? I mean REALLY? Are you trying to give us a Heart Attack!!!!!!! I absolutely LOVED hex hall and when i saw the spin off, i was likeThis is going to be AWESOME!!And than i see MAY 2013. YOUNTIS.Publish it NOW!!!! Okay, i'm over reacting a little bitHawkins.

    16. Fun fun fun! I simply adored Rachel Hawkins series, Hex Hall, and was rather sad when it finally came to an end, but I was happy to learn that we were getting a spin-off. I wasn't ready to let go of this world just yet and I'm happy to say that Hawkins hasn't lost her touch. School Spirits is just as fun and marvelous as I'd hope it would be. Like all the Brannick women, with their fierce green eyes and blazing red hair, sixteen year old Isolde has all the wonderful traits that comes with huntin [...]

    17. Eigentlich würde dieses Buch vier Sterne bekommen, wäre da nicht das Ende und die Tatsache, dass es, wie es aktuell aussieht, keine Fortsetzungen geben wird. Unter diesem Aspekt kann ich dann einfach nicht mehr als 3 Sterne geben, denn das Ende war einfach MEH. Es ist auch nicht eines dieser offenen Enden, die man so stehen lassen könnte, denn die Liebesgeschichte endet MEH und das mit der Adoption Ehm also ich fand nicht, dass das so gut zu den Charakteren gepasst hat. Trotzdem habe ich Scho [...]

    18. 2 stelle e mezzoPer carità, carino. È un libro adattissimo per staccare dal tran tran quotidiano. Un libro che ti fa compagnia, insomma, che alleggerisce che trasmette allegria, ma dopo 4 libri del genere dall’autrice so già cosa aspettarmi. Anticipo le sue mosse e le azzecco pure, questo non va bene. Non mi hanno convinto i personaggi, per niente.Isolde avrà pure avi antichi e super potenti… ma non sono riuscita a farmela piacere. Dex è il solito bel ragazzo pieno di cose e frasi già [...]

    19. See more reviews at YA Midnight Reads 3.5 stars Thank you Hyperion for sending me this review copy. No compensation was given or taken to change this review. '"This is being a Brannick, Izzy. No one said it would be easy." And with that, he was gone.' The long awaited spin-off series to Rachel Hawkin's best selling, Hex Hall trilogy. We are once again swept into the world of paranormal- vampires, warlocks, witches and faeries alike, and this time, instead of the kick-ass and sarcastic Sophie, we [...]

    20. 2.5/5I loved the hex hall series that Rachel Hawkins wrote and so dove into this one. Extremely disappointed.

    21. I absolutely loved the Hex Hall series, so I was naturally looking forward to this one. I can't even explain how excited I am to report that SCHOOL SPIRITS exceeded all of my expectations and delivered a story that I miraculously loved even more then the original series. Full of unique characters, a perfectly cute romance, an intriguing ghost story, and the laugh-out-loud humor that Hawkins is known for, this book will not disappoint.It was refreshing to have a new voice in this one while remnan [...]

    22. This would have been a 3-star book for me if it hadn't been for the end. You have a pissed off ghost who is dangerously wreaking havoc, and to find out who was behind it all and the reason why it happened - what a major letdown.As for the rest of the book, I enjoyed it but not nearly as much as the Hex Hall series, sans the last book of course. The series hadn't been mind-blowing, but I really liked it because it had an interesting concept with witches and demons, The Eye and the politics involv [...]

    23. When I saw this book listed in netgalley I immediately prayed to all the book gods that I would be approved for it. A few days later I looked like this.See, I loved Hex Hall, I enjoyed the story and the characters and when I heard that Rachel Hawkins was going to do a spin-off series I jumped for joy, but was admittedly a tiny bit worried what it would be about.In School Spirits, we're better introduced to the Brannicks. If you've read the Hex Hall series, you might remember them as the family o [...]

    24. My rating: 3.5 of 5 starsA copy of School Spirits was provided to me by Disney-Hyperion/Netgalley for review purposes.Izzy Brannick comes from a long line of monster hunters. Her family hunts them all for the Prodigium, the council that governs them all. The council that her cousin Sophie Mercer is in charge of. Izzy hasn't been the same since her sister went missing on a job both of them were supposed to be working on. She blames herself since she was supposed to be with her but ended up lettin [...]

    25. 3.5 stars - Spoilers I really enjoyed the Hex Hall trilogy — the books weren't perfect, but all in all they were fun, light and rather charming reads. I was happy that there'd more of that to come in the spin-off about Sophie's cousin, Izzy Brannick. -The most disappointing aspect of School Spirits was the storyline — it wasn't that it was bad, it was just that there wasn't a whole lot going on. Izzy's mum sent her to high school to investigate the suspicious-possibly-ghostly-supernatural de [...]

    26. 2.5 starsMeh.I just don't really have a whole lot of feelings about this book, good or bad. It's one of those inoffensive, decently written book with a heroine and antagonists lackluster enough so that I've little about which to complain. Everything is average. The writing is decent. I don't love it. I don't hate it. I can read it all the way through without getting so bored that I switch to another book on my ereader.School Spirits is a spin-off of Rachel Hawkins' other YA series, Hex Hall. We [...]

    27. It was an incredibly fast read. The story was just kinda eh. And I could really read the first and last page and instantly knew the story. Not that great.

    28. School Spirits is the first in a spin-off series from the Hex Hall books. And though I own the Hex Hall series, I was worried when this showed up in my mail that I wouldn't be able to read it, since I haven't actually read Hex Hall even a little bit. Being completely buried in books right now, and heading into what is inevitably my busiest month of the year, combined with the fact that I haven't read HH, I figured the best thing would be to set this on a shelf and let it languish for a bit wh [...]
