Demons Forever

by Sarra Cannon
Kindle Edition – Read March 4, 2013

Cost: $3.99 (As of this Post)

Length: 347 pages

Official Description: (This is book #6 of the Peachville High Demons series)

Harper has come so far from her life as a foster child. She never imagined what her future would hold when she was first brought to the small town of Peachville. Since that day she’s faced great evil, found some of the answers she’s been looking for, and fallen deeply, madly in love. But her biggest challenge and her greatest lessons are still ahead of her.

Despite living in the safety of her father’s castle in the shadow world, Harper knows there is a storm brewing just beyond the dome. Priestess Winter will never rest until she gets the Order’s blue ring back, and Jackson won’t let her forget they now hold the key to Aerden’s future.

When an unexpected visitor from Peachville arrives at the castle, bleeding and near death, his story brings Harper to her knees. Someone she loves has been kidnapped and it’s time for her to make a choice. Stay in the safety of the domed city? Or go back to the place where it all began?

My Take:

This book series has officially come to an end, and what a ride it was. I really enjoyed this series as a whole and I think the writing just improved with each book and the characters were just awesome. Harper and Jackson and gang are there for the “final” battle with the Order as Harper learns more about who she is and embraces both sides of heritage. We learn more about Priestess Winter and who Harper can truly trust, and there were some shocking twists. Ok not shocking, I knew they were coming I was just unsure of who would be performing them. I loved the touching moments between Harper and her Dad and just the whole book was really fun, there were some lulls here and there, but I don’t feel that this book was rushed in any way, the previous five books led us to this point, and it wasn’t disappointing. It leaves off with a satisfying ending, yet you still want to know more, and it appears there will be, just not in the POV of Harper.

On a side note, I love these book covers, I love that they all have a key piece on their covers and that the cover model is consistent and they all flow together. I look forward to more from Ms. Cannon and hope she continues to move forward and do well as an author.

Rival Demons

Rival Demons by Sarra Cannon (Kindle Edition) – Read March 2, 2012

Cost: $2.99 (As of This Post)

Official Description: (This is book 5 of the Peachville High Demons series)

After narrowly escaping death at the hand of the Order of Shadows, Harper finds herself thrust into the strange and beautiful world of the shadow demons. But crossing through the portal doesn’t mean she is safe. The Order of Shadows is determined to bring her home and transfer the Prima line to the Harris family. They send their most vicious hunters after Harper. Hunters who will not stop until they have found their prey.

Determined to keep her safe, Jackson takes her deep into an underground world filled with dangers of its own. Here, Harper will begin a journey that will teach her more about herself and her own path than she ever imagined possible.

But will her relationship with Jackson survive?

My Take: Oh my GOSH! That Ending….it’s surprising, I don’t even think there was foreshadowing to predict it… ok enough of that talk! 🙂

We start in on Rival Demons exactly where Shadow Demons leaves off. Jackson, Lea, Harper and Mary Anne enter the Demon world, and honestly it seemed to not fit entirely with the ending of the last book, and I was slightly confused for a few pages, but it had been a while since I read Shadow Demons. The story starts off in the action and sees some pretty terrific things going on with Harper. The bulk of the story is in the Underground, where the resistance is hiding in the demon world. Harper and Mary Anne are allowed in but they are very limited in what they can do. The demons don’t trust humans, and who could blame them? All of the human’s they’ve known have kidnapped and enslaved their kind, so Harper and Mary Anne are scrutinized, especially Harper. Jackson is distant and keeping secrets and Harper decides (eventually) to stop obsessing on her lack of contact, and the secretive nature of Jackson, and try to make herself a stronger witch.

I do like this series, this wasn’t my favorite book, but I think the next (and last) book will be VERY entertaining and action packed. I liked seeing the demon world, or glimpsing the demon world, and seeing what madness the Order has brought upon this other world. It’s true that a lot of people (in real life and in the story) look at atrocities that afflict the world and just choose to hide or ignore it because they are too afraid, or have too much doubt in themselves to effect what’s going on. This series, mostly this book, addresses that fact and sometimes it takes a loud and obstinate, and naive, voice to make a difference, trying is better than sitting around. I look forward to picking up the upcoming conclusion Demons Forever, whenever it’s released.

Shadow Demons

Shadow Demons by Sarra Cannon (Kindle Edition) – Read September 30, 2011

Cost: $2.99 (as of this post)

Cover: I like that these books have been consistent, they have the same cover model with an important artifact on the cover and the font and colors have all been the same. I like that, my son (who’s 6) says he wants to marry the girl on the covers…he thinks it’s the best cover of the books I’ve been reading lately. 🙂

Product Description: “In Peachville, there’s a fine line between good and evil. That line is about to be crossed.”

My Take: I can’t believe this series is almost over, just one book after this one. I liked this it is going out of the box that we’ve been in for the last 3 books. Harper is finding herself again, her true self not her fake glamour cheerleader self, she is seeing things for what they are, FINALLY, and that nothing is what it seems. It seems that there’s another evil after Harper, she hears Crow wings flapping, is seeing new strange people in town and she really wants to have a future with Jackson. She also wants a future with her friends on the cheer leading squad, the only place she’s ever belonged. She likes her power, but doesn’t want to enslave the Shadow Demon. I like the characters I don’t really feel indifferent towards anyone, I either despise them or love them. There are some good twists and the darn story leaves you on the edge…but you have to wait. Good writing, good story, looking forward to the last one.

Bitter Demons

So I keep changing my mind on how I want to do my book thing. I think I am just going to post my tiny blurb after each book, because really, I just forget stuff as time goes on and I try to remember everything important. So first I have to play a little catch up.

First off Disclaimer:

  1. I am not in anyway related to anyone who authors, publishes or whatever with any books, it would be awesome if I was but, I’m not.
  2. I am not a writer, or a book blogger per say, I just happen to read a bit and have opinions.
  3. If I decide to delve into a book past my regular non-spoiler fare I will put up flags for spoilers so you can stop reading!
Well that should cover it…again, not a writer so forgive my errors and lack of witty commentary.

Bitter Demons by Sarra Cannon (Kindle Editon) Read September 1, 2011

Bitter Demons is the third installment of the Peachville High Demons series and I will say that it was good. The start was a bit slow, and we’re starting to get a bit lackluster with the series, but it is still pretty good. Mainly the lackluster was the beginning once the story picks up it is pretty enjoyable. I like that we learn more about our mysterious Jackson and what roll he is playing in Peachville. We also follow Harper on her journey to become Prima, she still really doesn’t like the idea of being taken over by a demon, but who in their right mind would? We also find out what it means to be a Prima and meet some other futures. Of course there is tragedy that is along the same lines as the first two, but it takes on a slightly different turn. This book does a lot of explaining while we are trying to solve our mystery, there’s Ms. Shadowford, Harper’s Mom, Shadowford Manor and Harper herself. Of course we don’t have all the answers, but I hope they are coming quickly. There is still so much that can happen between Jackson and Harper, but is it even a possibility? The story is a good one, the writing is fun and exciting I can’t wait for more!

Inner Demons

Inner Demons by Sarra Cannon (Kindle Edition) – Read August 6, 2011

Cost: $2.99 (As of This Post)

Official Description: (This is book 2 of the Peachville High Demons series)

Becoming a Demons cheerleader was the last thing Harper Madison expected when she moved to the small town of Peachville. Now that she’s an official member of the squad, her training can begin. Only, this is no normal group of cheerleaders. The training opens up a new world for Harper. It’s a world of beauty and magic beyond her wildest dreams, but also a world of pressure and impossible expectations.
A world where every secret hides an even darker secret.

My Take: Inner Demons by Sarra Cannon (Kindle Edition) – Inner Demons is the second book in the Peachville High Demons series, and I really liked it. We get to learn a little bit more of what Peachville is all about and a little bit more about the mysterious Jackson. Of course there is a mystery, I guess really this whole series is a mystery of sorts, the mystery of Peachville, cause this town is not your atypical town. Anyway, the journey into discovering all the secrets is fun to traverse with Harper, though it seems when something is uncovered a slew of new secrets pop up. I think this is one of the better, Indie, young adult book series out there, it has more depth and intrigue than a lot of other books I’ve read. It leaves you wanting more and then you turn the ‘page’ and we have to wait for the next book (which I am currently reading).
