The Sweet-

For the very beginning you are pulled in to this enthralling story that has magic, love, evil and so many secrets you can’t NOT want to read till you find them all out. The author creates a world that is both dark and enticing to readers who love YA and paranormal alike.

Cannon is able to create amazing depth not only in the main characters but the town of Peachville itself. The story is full of plot twist and turmoil that can almost be felt as you read along and want so much cheer Harper on and guide her into the right direction. You find yourself screaming at our main heroine almost like you do when watching slasher movies. “THE ANSWER IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU!” “No, DON”T DO IT!!” and “RUN YOU IDIOT!”

I can honestly tell you that I am now hooked on this series and proudly own the first 5 books now on my kindle! I would recommend this to any one who likes a good mystery full to the brim with drama and magic!

Rating- 5 out of 5 cupcakes!
