Refresher:  Harper moves to orphanage in Peachville, where she joins the cheerleading squad and discovers that they are witches who gain power from the demons they enslave.

Since you are probably getting sick of my endless praise of the Peachville High Demons series, you will appreciate what it means that Shadow Demons is my favorite book so far in the series. (As of this point there are 5 in the series, and I, of course, hope that #6 will be even better, but even if it is average for the series, it will still be awesome.) This is the book where we finally start getting some real answers about what is going on with the Order of the Shadows, both in Peachville and more globally. And I do so like that point in a series where we start to have everything explained, while of course being left with new and more interesting questions.

For most of the series, Harper has been trying to see good even in all the people around her and hoping to find a way to get free of the Order without hurting the people who have been kind to her. But now the lines must be drawn, and she needs to decide which side she’s really on. Fortunately, she gets some hard and fast evidence of who the bad guys are that makes the decision relatively easy.

Another fun thing about this fourth installment is that we get to meet some demons other than Jackson. You know, who aren’t being held captive inside of other witches. Although, as a friend of mine points out, the shadow demons are in serious need of a rebranding. No one is going to believe that they are the heroes of the series with a name like “shadow demons.” Of course, “Order of Shadows” doesn’t scream “morally wholesome” either, but I think if the demons started calling themselves “Beings of Energy,” they might have an easier time convincing people to take their side.

Well, I can’t really say too much more without giving away even more spoilers than I already have. In another couple of weeks, I’ll write a review of Rival Demons, and after that we shall be sadly Jackson-less until Sarra Cannon finishes #6. But we shall wait because we know that more time will only make it more fabulous.
