Review: Beautiful Demons

Title: Beautiful Demons (Book 1 of the Peachville High Demons series.)
Author: Sarra Cannon

Book Summary:
          “Harper Madison isn't like other girls. She has extraordinary powers, but her inability to control them has gotten her kicked from so many foster homes she's lost count.  Shadowford Home is her last chance, and she hopes Peachville High will be the fresh start she needs.  But when evidence ties her to the gruesome murder of a Demons cheerleader, Harper discovers this small town has a big secret.”

            This book is a page-turner with an ending that will leave you scrambling to get book two.  I can already tell that Beautiful Demons lays the groundwork for a marvelous series.  Harper makes many startling revelations that invoke more questions and not nearly enough answers to satisfy my mounting curiosity.  Especially since Harper finds it impossible to stick to the rules —even if this is her final warning…
This book features two very different romantic interests.  I’m looking forward to the second book to see how things play out between these rivals!  Beautiful Demons is a magical book that transports you into the mind of a confused girl who just she wishes that she were normal.  Haunted by a past she can’t escape and uncertain as to what her future will be, Harper starts her life over. Again.  This book will captivate you and leave you wondering… “What’s up with those cheerleaders?”  Wonderfully alluring and severely mysterious, Beautiful Demons will shock you when you least expect it!

The Cover:
This cover by Robin Ludwig Design, Inc. is GORGEOUS.  Having the girl looking down at the necklace creates a truly wonderful effect.  The bright blue of the stone really stands out and is completely accurate with the details in the story.  This cover art draws your eye and makes you never want to look away.

I give this book 4 out of 5 hearts: Great book and a lead into, what I believe will be, a must read series!

  1. This book sounds really cool, I absolutly love the cover!

  2. I love this whole series so much. Sarra Cannon was my first Indie author and she opened up my world so much. It is just fantastic. The girl knows how to write. I cannot wait for the final book in the series. But honestly, I will be sad to see it go!

    "What's up with those cheerleaders?" -- Since that's exactly the sort of question I would have asked in high school, you're making me wonder about my weird classmates on the cheerleading team. ;-)

    I think it would be interesting to find out how many fans of extraordinary characters who just want to be normal are normal readers who just want to be extraordinary. Not that the agonies of the former seem to help the latter be happy with what they have, though.

  6. Sounds good! And sounds like there's some love triangle going on there too. I love that. Great review! :)

  7. I have this on my Kindle just waiting to be read, but I haven't gotten around to it. Honestly I haven't heard much about it so I'm happy to see that someone enjoyed it.
