Product Description

About the Author

Sarra Cannon writes contemporary and paranormal fiction with both teen and college age characters. Her novels often stem from her own experiences growing up in the small town of Hawkinsville, Georgia, where she learned that being popular always comes at a price and relationships are rarely as simple as they seem. Her best selling Young Adult paranormal series, Peachville High Demons, has sold over 140,000 copies and been featured on Amazon's Top 100 eBooks for Children & Teens. The first book in the series, Beautiful Demons, will be adapted into a graphic novel by Sea Lion Books later this year, and a spin-off series will begin in 2014. She is a devoted (obsessed) fan of Hello Kitty and has an extensive collection that decorates her desk as she writes. She currently lives in South Carolina with her amazingly supportive husband and her adorable son.

Oh well, it's only a few hours of my life I'll never get back!! Not an unpleasant experience, this is a paranormal, teen-based story that plays on the demands of the school-yard hierarchy. Where does the 'outsider' new girl fit into the order of things? At the top with the cheer leaders and the jocks? Or at the bottom with the other misfits? Some interesting concepts and possible intrigues for future instalments......but without being able to connect with the characters......!!
An easy read that doesn't demand much from the reader other than time! - No interaction! No connection! No empathy! No emotional commitment! As a result of this I feel no all-consuming compulsion to read more of this series!!

This is a nice introduction to the Peachville High Demons series. Although we're aware that this is going to be a series with a supernatural/paranormal element to it, as an introductory book this only really touches the surface of what I think we're going to see in future books in this series.

Harper has been passed from pillar to post for years, going between foster homes where nobody wants to keep her due to the strange events that seem to follow her around. Nobody believes her when she says that she didn't cause the accidents to happen, which she didn't - at least not intentionally. Harper is being given a last chance by attending Shadowford, a home for wayward girls in Peachville.

At first everyone seems so perfect, it's a bit like the Stepford wives, but covers the entire town. However, things aren't what they seem and there is a dark and dangerous undercurrent which runs through the novel. It's the undercurrent that really draws you into this novel, you know throughout that there is something else lurking in the background but that you're not privy to what exactly it is. I like the way this is done, keeping you wondering what's happening that you're not being told about.

This was quite a short, quick read, which is the only real downside for me. I don't like the trend for a number of short books over a smaller number of thicker books but, that's just me and I guess I'll just have to cope!

An interesting teen book. Loved the main character. Was a bit too dark in places for me personally but others with that taste would enjoy it. I liked everything else about the story, a gripping read that kept you guessing what would happen next. I'll definitely be reading the next books in the series.

I got this as a kindle freebie, for that I am glad...

I personally thought this book was shallow and they characters within it didn't have any depth.

The story also came of as very vain... Poor girl changing everything about herself to join Peachville elite.

====MOCK HARPER POV====
"Last week you were being rude and mean to me and now you being all nice, why?" I ask.

"I realise it was wrong to treat you differently just because your poor without a family and live at Shadowford. There's something special about you, Harper." Drake replies.

I look up at him with big doe eyes... He said I'm special, sure he was a jerk to me and treat me like mud beneath his feet but now he said im special i think I have truly falling for him..

"Hey Harper, its me Jackson." I hear someone say.. "Get Lost, LOSER!" Drake replies... Ohhhh! He has so changed...
=======================

Too me she changes everything about herself to join the elite high... I won't join the cheerleaders, Now I'm joining the cheerleaders..

I always liked story that had an "underdog" and became something/someone, but not in sort of way..

The only thing that kept me reader until the end is what her role as Prima and that isn't even revealed in this book :@ My curiosity :@ This book is a prelude to the series...

I like many books, if the book has a good story premise, characters and plot that you want to read to find out what happens i generally like the book, but i was disappointed in this book.

This short book starts with 16 year old Harper moving to Stepford, sorry, I mean Peachville, because she has powers that she can't control that no one wants to admit they know about.

She moves there and quickly finds out that the town is split between the perfect and beautiful ... and the rest of them. She doesn't fit in as she lives in the Shadowford home, until some magic mojo is performed which suddenly affects her memory and her whole ability to judge people on who they are.

This book was ok but I'm not sure whether the jocks and the cheerleaders are actually the good guys or bad (I'm going with bad based on this book) and I'm certainly wishing to have known more about Jackson as he was the character with the most oomph about him.

This book will leave you with a lot of questions that remain unanswered which is supposed to make you buy the rest of the books to find out the answers. However, for me, I really couldn't care less what happens to 99% of the characters.

A very quick read and not enough hooks to get me to buy the rest FIVE in the series!!!

By Ancient Mariner TOP 500 REVIEWER on 20 Feb. 2015
Format: Paperback
I liked this book, but a reader should know what to expect going in. We aren't going for great depth here. The goal seems to have been to set out a fast paced witch-coven-creepytown-mystery anchored by a decent and articulate heroine, with a bunch of to-be-answered-later questions, a lot of foreshadowing and hinting, a touch of romance and a sneaky slam-bang ending to story arc one. Well, mission accomplished.

This book has all of the ingredients for a successful YA magical menacing mystery romance, and those ingredients have been combined in exactly the right proportions. It strikes me as awfully hard to get the balance right in a book like this. The heroine has to be sympathetic but not so angsty and whiny you want to slap her. She has to be a bit slow in figuring things out, (or you don't have a book), but not so slow you get fed up with her. You like a little romance, but she can't get swoony and weak kneed over every super-dreamy guy she sees. You want a few chuckles, but you don't want to mock the genre or your reader. You need a lot of secondary characters - friends, threats, quirky distractions, menacing competitors, possible love interests, mysterious adults, red herrings - but you need to sketch them in without interrupting the flow or pace of the book.

Here, I thought the author had achieved that tasty balance. The story zips along, but you get everything you need to enjoy it. It helps that the book is very well written and edited. No clunky dialogue or overwritten showboating weighs down or slows down the story. Everything is pretty sharp and well crafted.

So, a nice diversion and an entertaining find. An interesting choice. (Please note that I found this book while browsing Amazon Kindle freebies. I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.)
