In Shadow Demons (Peachville High Demons #4) by Sarra Cannon

In Shadow Demons (Peachville High Demons #4, a Young Adult Novelette series), Harper learns more terrible secrets. People she trusts, those who are supposed to protect and guide her, betray her, and beliefs she held dear are exposed as falsehoods and lies.  Still, Harper holds true to her fundamental nature. She is more than ever determined to rail against the evil forces aligned against her. As Future Prime, Harper is expected to lead by example, but when she discovers and blows the whistle on a gruesome cover-up she sets off a series of events that put her in the forefront of an unprecedented rebellion.

This is another phenomenal, fast-paced entry in this series.  Harper is growing into her powers, maturing, and becoming more self-confident.  The world-building continues to expand as the author sets the malignant forces loose in heart-stopping action.  This book perfectly sets the stage for the final chapter which is expected to be released later this year.  Imaginative, quirky, and suspenseful this appealing series should not be missed. In my opinion, it has broad appeal for younger readers as well as for those of us who are simply young at heart.
