Fans of Sarra Cannon's Peachville High Demons series have been waiting patiently for the new season of PHD to start.
Monday 11th May 2015 (today) brought us the release of Emerald Darkness. Book one in the Beautiful Darkness series. A continuation from the PHD books, Emerald Darkness uses the same characters, plus some new ones, and a few from the Sacrifice Me series also written by Sarra Cannon.
Emerald Darkness is a young adult book, set in a world of witches and demons. The story follows Harper, Jackson, Lea, Aerden, Zara and many more as they continue in their battle against the witches of The Order. Aiming to close all demon gates, across the world.
Sarra has given enough of a background story in Emerald Darkness in order to read this new season without reading the PHD books first.
Pay close attention when reading the book, you will notice each chapter is written from the point of view of one of the characters. To make this extremely easy to understand, Sarra has added the name of each character at the beginning of the chapter. I found this to give this book more of a personal feeling. I was getting to know the individual characters, rather than the whole story being told from one point of view. Sometimes a book in this style, can feel 'choppy' but the chapters flow through and into each other seemingly seamless.
Being a 31 one year old reading books aimed at young adults, I sometimes have doubts as to whether I really should be reading these type of stories at all. Sarra's way of writing makes the story accessible for people of all ages. She really has mastered something quite special.
