IE Reviews~Beautiful Demons

It’s time for another non-Indie Elite member (but fabulous indie author) short review. Today’s review is of the first novel in the Peachville High Demons trilogy, Beautiful Demons by Sarra Cannon.

My thoughts:



There aren't many books that can suck me in so immediately and keep me engaged, but this one definitely did. The mystery, the characters, the hint of paranormal, it was all perfectly balanced and wonderfully executed. I'm reminded of another series by a famous author, something about secrets and circles, that will remain unnamed ;), and I've got to say Beautiful Demons is BETTER.

If you enjoy a little magic, a lot of intrigue, and a story that sucks you right in, don’t miss this one. My only complaint, it was a little short. But that’s probably because I was enjoying it so much that I wasn’t ready for it to end.

The Goodreads blurb:

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.

  4. I agree! A great read that has you turning page after page, but they run out so quickly. I was impressed with the quality and shine of this book - proves that are some terrific indies out there.
