Peachville High Demons #1: Beautiful Demons by Sarra Cannon (Young Adult, 10/10)

October 2010, Dead River Books 
136 pages, Ebook 
Personal Copy 

Content: murder, some gruesome parts, lots of tension 

Summary from Sarra's website

 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.

Nayuleska's thoughts 

When I adore a book, and it's totally right for me, I know it pretty much after the first page. This is exactly what happened with this book. I love it! I was glued to the pages as Harper's power is revealed, I was hooked by the mysteries going on in her new home. I adore stories where the character isn't at home (for several reasons) and is under the care of others. It was nice how Harper isn't completely alone in the world - she meets people who have their own agenda, but they do give her an unexpected hand when she needs it. I'm looking forward to devouring the rest of the series, which will hopefully be just as engaging as this 10/10 read!

I've had Beautiful Demons for over six months and haven't read it. I am glad to hear you like it - maybe it will get bumped up in the TBR pile. :)

Maybe if you read this and liked it you'd like the Mythos Academy books...I don't know, though.
