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.

Buy The Book - Beautiful Demons (Peachville High Demons #1) by Sarra Cannon
Another Amazon freebie, another chance to come across a new author. That is exactly what I love about these freebies, although some I am very glad I never paid for. This isn't one of them.
Harper has been moved from foster home to foster home and she's on her last chance and Shadowford Home will be that last chance. Of course things are never what they seem and Sarra Cannon really does well in a short space of time to create an intriguing magic based world.
The book is more novella in length so it is short and there isn't much time for us to really get to grips with everything that is going on with Harper but it is nicely set up for Book #2. Yes, there is a cliffhanger! I really enjoyed this and whilst I found Shadowford very creepy, I liked the way it was all set up and I will definitely be reading the others. Although this works as a freebie and intro for the series, more of these freebies do intrigue me to try more of those books I wouldn't normally read. This one is a bit YA based but as a short read it's worth having a read as it won't take you long at all to read.
Thanks for reading!
