In Peachville, there's a fine line between good and evil.
That line is about to be crossed.
I have been a huge fan of this series since the very first book, and they just get better and better. Shadow Demons is the 4th book in the series, and it is also my favorite, The plot ensnares you from the beginning, with lots of twists and turns, mystery, and suspense. One of the most intriguing things about the books in this series is the fact that, from moment to moment, you are never quite sure who is good and who is evil. Shadow Demons is no exception. At one point, you think you know exactly where that line is drawn, and then the story twists and you realize that perhaps you were wrong. It makes you want to keep turning the pages to find out what happens next. It is one of those books that just has to be read in one sitting because you are hard pressed to put it down and walk away from it.
Cannon creates characters that are very realistic and believable, drawing you into their own stories, Harper is a great leading lady in the plot, really pulling the reader into her story. She was so well developed that you very often felt the very same emotions that she was feeling within the storyline. There were moments within the story when she was dealing with Jackson and his refusal to come clean with his secrets that I felt her frustration and just wanted to slap Jackson on her behalf! Jackson, although somewhat frustrating at times, was also a sympathetic character that you couldn’t help but like. Even the less likeable characters, like Lydia Ashworth, were able to pull you in emotionally, even if because you were angered by them. As an avid fangirl of the series, I highly recommend the entire series (Beautiful Demons, Inner Demons, Bitter Demons), as well as the new Shadow Demons. The next, and sadly last, book in the series, Demons Forever, will be out sometime this fall and I will be first in line to get it!
