Review: Beautiful Demons by Sarra Cannon

Beautiful Demons by Sarra Cannon 
Peachville High Demons 
Book 1

Beautiful Demons is the first book in the Peachville High Demons series.
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 read book 2! 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 follow the rules - even if this is her final warning...

The main character, Harper, is very relatable. Not so much for the fact that she is a child in the foster care system, but of wanting to belong. Everyone wants to belong. So that makes you feel for her and want to see how her life ends up working out. Harper's back story gives you a little insight to what paranormal aspect this book has, and everything that happens once she moves to Shadowford really makes you not want to put this book down. Shadow ford itself is very mysterious and makes you wonder what really happens in that house. 

This book features two different romantic interests. I'm looking forward to the second book to see how things play out between the two rivals! Beautiful Demons is a magical book that transports you into the mind of a confused girl who just wishes that she was 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 wonder ... "What's up with those cheerleaders?" Wonderfully alluring and severely mysterious, Beautiful Demons will shock you when you least expect it!

I won't spoil it, but it was a nice ending to this book, and a little curiosity to the next book, which I cannot wait to read!

Rating: 5/5
