This series just keeps getting better and better. Some of my questions from book 1 were answered...but now has raised some new questions. The magic in this book is so fun and reminds me of Charmed, which I always enjoyed watching. The cheerleading aspect of the story is still really great and works well.

Brooke, Lark and Allison are all great characters. I can't wait to learn more about them and their pasts. I won't talk about Drake and his arrogant ego. All I can say is Harper better set his as

Wow! "Inner Demons" is another great addition to the Peachville High Demons series. How much did I like this second book? Well, let me tell you I gobbled down the first and second book in a matter of hours and now I am off to read the third book in the series.

In this installment, Harper Madison has it all. She is a member of the cheerleading squad and she is dating the rich,handsome quarterback, Drake Ashworth. So, what is the problem? Harper feels as if something is wrong and she cannot quite p

I’m sticking with my original 4.5 but giving the 5th star because I loved the reread and I think knowing how much world building got done in the thick of all the action I’m giving it a bump.

There is a whole lot more going on in this one. We learn so much about their world without any info dumps. Harper’s conflict is evident through the whole story but even more so in this one. She finally is a part of something but it feels all wrong. She’s got the prize of the school (even if he is a douche), p
This is a strong follow on from book 1. It wasn't till about a third of the way in that it started to develop further with development on Brooke's character whilst the relationship with Lark maintains a certain level of camerarderie. More information regarding Peachville and it's inhabitants is revealed and the story ends with a suitable level of anticipation for the next book.

Having a great time reading Harper's story and i am a certainly a fan of paranormal series. Jackson's mystery is intriguing! Can't wait to read book 3!

I preferred Inner Demons to the first instalment of the Peachville High Demons series.

Harper didn't agree with whatever was being told to her. She really tried to help her friends and work out why her memories were being taken away from her. She was brave but not quite brave enough which I actually liked. Maybe I'm just speaking for myself but I wouldn't walk into a room full of witches with the slim chance of saving a friend. I liked that she thought logically about what she was doing, apart fr

Actual rating - 2.5

Inner Demons was an okay read, but it could drag.

Harper was an okay character again, but sometimes she could be a bit stupid.
She was told that something was dangerous, but went ahead and done it anyway. As the story continued, she done it more, but on a bigger level.

The pacing was quite slow, so i felt bored in some parts. Due to that, it felt longer than what it was.

Overall, an okay sequel, but not as good as book one.

Dear Sarra,

I hate you. I'm supposed to be writing and instead I spend all of my time reading your books.



p.s. I don't really hate you.
This book followed the same path as book 1. But keep with it book 3 is better.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this series!!!! Highly recommend!! Gonna be sad when it is over.
4.5 Stars
This is the second novella in the Peachville High Demon series and, I must say, I found it just as engrossing and enchanting as the first book,Beautiful Demons. Told from the perspective of the young recruit, Harper Madison, the dialogues are deftly handled. The uncertainty and angst of the sixteen-year-old protagonist, Harper, resonates throughout. However, through it all, Harper struggles to make the right choices and to discover who she is and what she truly wants to become. She is s

See more reviews on my blog!

It seems like I am devouring this series. I finished the second book in about a day and a half, same as the first! These books just keep surprising me. I think I know what will happen and then it doesn’t happen. That’s a key factor to a great book. Another thing I love about these books is the chapter titles. I know that’s a pretty random thing to comment on. But, if you’ve read the books you probably know why. It always keeps me

Inner Demons is the sequel to Beautiful Demons.

It picks up right where Beautiful Demons left off. Now an official member of the Demons cheerleading squad, Harper soon learns that things are not as they seem and something may be horribly wrong. While seeking answers, she discovers she may have put herself in a very dangerous position that she may not be able to get herself out of.

It is full of surprises, twists and turns. Harper finds out a little more about the town of peachville and a little o

This one was just as good as the first one. It developed a lot of the characters a bit more, and we really get to see Harper grow. You learn more about the town she is from, but there are still many questions about her situation. I enjoy the way this author slowly lets you in on the secrets, without making you so irritated to be left in the dark.

One thing I didn't mention in my review of the first one is the chapter names. I really like the way the author chooses each name. Each chapter is named

Each "book" of this series is less a stand-alone novel, and more a chapter in an ongoing, larger saga. Inner Demons picks up a few weeks after the last one ends. I'm glad there's not a lot of time rehashing past events, we just jump right in and get moving. Plot-wise, things pick up. We get a bunch more info here on what the heck's going on, and I really appreciated it.

It's still YA-lite, sweet cotton candy to delight your taste buds, but I was on board for the action, the revelations and deepen
This is a perfect sequel to the first book! I found it generally more interesting than the first but that might just be me, because I love rushing to all the action and answers - the hardships of an impatient bookworm!
In this volume is follows Harper after her initiation into the cheer leading squad, which then answers many questions about Peachville, magic and The Order/ The Others

Personally I'm reading all three as one because of my Ebook so I love it as just one big book because it doesn't

Good follow up.
Romance doesn't develop believably,
but whatever. The story is interesting
in itself either way.

If you're sick of vampires/warewolves/ghosts,
give this series a try! The covers may
look cheesy, but I was pleasantly surprised
by how different the story was, and how un-whiny
the female protagonist is (yay!).

Picks up where Beautiful Demons left off. Answers some questions but creates more questions. I like Harper and Jackson. Drake is an a**. I'm not sure who to trust. I have to get book 3 now. I want to know what happens.

Fun with new hints to what's going on but not everything. In a way reminds me of a series called the Secret Circle.

I'm still enjoying the fast pace if this series, and the price (free), but it really does need to get out of cliche land. Not very original, and as usual for teen books, the heroine is always the last to figure out the glaringly obvious plot points. It's not suspenseful. It just makes her look incompetent and stupid. At least the lame pseudo love triangle has mostly resolved itself, I hope. I have one more free book to get through, then we'll see. There's just enough mystery right now to keep me ...more

Absolutely fantastic book, gripping, and engaging. I'm an older reader, and I think she does a great job of navigating issues all teenage girls go through. I just purchased the 4th book, and will start on the 3rd book after writing this review.
