*Inner Demons – Book 2, 4.5 stars
Becoming a Demons cheerleader was the last thing Harper Madison expected when she moved to the small town of Peachville. Now that she’s an official member of the squad, her training can begin. Only, this is no normal group of cheerleaders. Harper isn’t there to learn dances and cheers. She became a cheerleader in order to finally learn how to control the magic inside.
The Peachville Demons cheerleading squad is really a training ground for a powerful coven of witches called the Order of Shadows. The training opens up a new world for Harper. It’s a world of beauty and magic beyond her wildest dreams, but also a world of pressure and impossible expectations.
A world where every secret hides an even darker secret.
When Harper began her training and found out what she was, The Order told her she’d learn how to use her powers if she followed their rules. Also she had to get a tattoo to be part of the Order. After getting the tattoo she found out her tattoo was something different from anyone else, ever. Well, since when had Harper done anything typical anyway, huh? So was a good or a bad thing?
Harper again had trouble with another kid in school. This time she was a witch. The witch seemed jealous because of Jackson. That witch ended up dead. Jackson got blamed for it. He went to jail. Only Harper searched for the real murderer.
Harper was still having memory lapses in this book, too, until Jackson helped her out with them. There was a whole lot of rigamarole involved with it, you’ll just have to read the book. It helped Harper figure out stuff about others as well as herself.
Harper learns some disturbing things about what makes the cheerleading witches into demons. She had thought the cheerleaders were nice and nothing was wrong with the magic they were all doing. Then she saw what truly went on during one of the demon ceremonies. It was frightening, making her wonder if the other girls knew what they were in for.
This book had more meat to it than the first book. The depth was in its description of the characters, thickening of the plot and spicing up the emotions between the people.
I liked the way the cheerleaders really came out and had more story to them, especially Lark. She gave Harper something that she could use. Of course there was another relationship that became something more later on too. Anyone that likes soap operas will truly love these small things that pop up in order to create madness later.
And the adults! The sinister adults are oh so mean! How can these kids get mean without the adults to have given them their start in life? They are after all, demons.
Storyline, concept, grammar, punctuation, fluidity, freakishness, icky characters, and plain mean girls and boys are all good in my opinion. Add mean adults.
