Overview

Killing a priestess in the most evil organization of witches in the world has its consequences.

Harper Brighton is standing on the precipice of a great and terrible war. The sapphire demon gates have fallen, but the four remaining priestesses of the Order of Shadows and their ruler--the mysterious High Priestess--continue to enslave demons from the Shadow World to steal their power.

Harper and her friends in the Demon Liberation Movement target the emerald gates--a dangerous and far more cunning enemy than any they have ever faced. No one is safe. Destruction comes in the blink of an eye, and the entire human world finds itself frozen, locked in perpetual darkness.

Now, Harper must battle her darkest fears in order to save those she loves most. Will she lead them to victory or will everything they've fought for be lost forever?

Deception Always Waits For the Perfect Moment Gah!! Emerald Darkness is here it’s here it’s here and it’s BRILLIANT!! Harper!! Lea!! Jackson!! Aerden!! ZARA! I have missed this series soooo much Emerald Darkness will not disappoint. This is the first book of the Beautiful Darkness series but there is another series that takes place before the events in this! I’m like dying, dying, dying, dead! I need to know what happens next! Cannon delivers stunning new series of events with Emerald Darkness. Readers beware that ending was brutal and hopeful and overall pretty effing awesome!  I typically do my acrostic review using the title of the book, today I’m using the title of this exciting and new series!..  B-ound, Jackson knows he will never love another the way he loves Harper. It is time everyone else knows his hearts desires as well.  E-venings, Harper has made everyone aware of the many dangers threatening these moments of peace. Warnings unfortunately aren’t enough to keep Lea and Aerden from training past sun set.  A-lone, Lea knows she no longer has Jackson but the pain of losing her love haunts her still.  U-nbeknownst, Aerden’s love has been Lea’s driving force all these years the fact she doesn’t know that love was his is utterly heartbreaking.  T-rust, Jackson has been sheltering Harper but something awful is threatening Harper’s kingdom and soon everyone will know they are facing a powerful foe.  I-nspiration, Harper’s dreams are full of clues but something’s just outside of her grasp she cannot place what this means.  F-ear, revenge is surely on the horizon and soon an attack will set things in motion to eradicate the DLM once and for all.  U-seless, of all the information Harper has accumulated not a stitch of it has helped the DLM’s efforts.  L-ost, Aerden was a prisoner for so long he has forgotten what it means to be free. His past threatens his every breath and he fears he will never find his way again.   D-estruction, something valuable lies within Harpers kingdom but she doesn’t know what that is just yet.  A-ffliction, love has always been Harper’s greatest strength though the order views it as her greatest weakness they will stop at nothing to achieve their goals.  R-emorse, the people Harper has come to love and depend on are gone she want to get them back safely but she can’t help blaming herself along the way.  K-ing, Lea is tired of treading lightly needing answers she will walk into the evidence of madness.  N-aive, Aerden knows Lea’s distress is in vain they both have to figure out a way to get back to those they hold so dear.  E-scape, amid the flames Harper realizes the truth behind recent events. The time has come to prove to herself who she truly is.  S-ecrets, knowing full well things could go completely wrong won’t stop Harper from carrying out her plans. The time has come for action and she will not go lightly.  S-acrifice, knowing death is eminent the purest of souls will fight till her last breath in order to save her loved ones. Calculating evil will have the upper hand but there is love and where there is love there is hope.  That ending makes me want to scream like a mad person! This read, as is typical of Cannons books will give you a case of the feels. Joy, despair, revenge, love, anger, frustration, and most importantly hope. I cannot get enough of these wonderful characters. Cannon knows how to deliver an addictive story. I was hooked from the very first book and it just keeps getting better and better. All of the characters from the first series are there. There are also some new not so new characters that are a part of her other series, a spinoff of these stories. To be honest I’m going to pick up the first of that series next! Cannon never fails to deliver I can’t get enough this author is definitely one of my favorites because I know whatever I pick up by her will be amazing!  My Rating 4.5 Dreams, Drawings, Blood, Dome, Hunters, Time Stop, Emerald, Cage, Diamonds, Hunted, Madness, Prison, Warning, Fire, Attack, Clues, Decision, Sword, Potions, Green Shards, Sacrifice, Cocoon, Unforgettable Love, Wrath Unhinged, Dangerously Deliciously Filled Stars!

Super excited to have this book.  I loved the Peachville series (which I started when I got the first 3 books  free on barnes and noble) and was super excited when I heard that there was going to be a follow up.  This book does stand completely on its own and gives you enough information on the background without boring you if you have already been a fan.  I love the POV style because it lets you really get to  know each one of the characters very well.   If you are looking for an interesting read with witches, demons and plot twists this is a good one for you!

Emerald Darkness is the first book of the Beautiful Darkness series. The storyline starts soon after the Peachville Demon series (which you can get the first 3 books for free on Amazon). If you haven't read the Peachville Demon Series, don't fret, as this book could stand alone. This book is written in point of view style, with the name of the POV character written at the beginning of each chapter. The storyline has witches and demons fighting it out for the right of survival. The characters in the book all have something or someone at stake. The ending will leave you wanting more. It is hard to put down because you will develop emotions for these characters. I can't wait for the next book! I received an ARC of this book from Sarra Cannon for an honest review.

I loved reading the Peachville High Series and let me tell you, you are in for a good read. It is true you don't have to read that series to follow this book. Sarra Cannon did it again. She does a great job telling a story. I really like all the characters. The story was well written. It is kind of neat when she switches to the different characters point of view. Read on.......I am sure you will feel the same.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Harry Potter. Even though it is listed as a stand alone, reading the first part of the series makes it so much better. I am not sure Harper could realistically trust anyone after this book, but will wait until the second book to see how everything unfolds! Worth the time if you are looking for an easy read.

Great  I received an ARC of this book from Sarra Cannon for an honest review. This was a really good read. The different POVs from the characters kept the story interesting. Reading this story makes you feel like you are right in there with them. I was on the edge of my seat for almost the entire story. The ending will leave you wanting more. I cannot wait for the next book to come out in this series. Overall, this was an outstanding book and a great beginning to a new Sarra Cannon series.
