Peighton's best friend, and Scott's ex-girlfriend, is brutally murdered in front of Peighton's eyes, casting the blame on her. But Scott has a hard time believing that Peighton is to blame, and as a member of SPIRIT, he knows not to take everything at face value. Peighton was rescued by the mysterious Evan Reed, a man who seems to know more about what is going on than he lets on. Sometimes facing demons isn't just a personal journey, and it will take everything that Scott and Peighton have to defeat the demon that is haunting the town...
Up until this point I've been thinking that this series is good but I hadn't felt dragged into it (often nothing to do with the books and more often to do with the mood I'm in when I'm reading them) but Hidden Demons was different. Something about it dragged me in early on in the book.
Interestingly, compared to the previous SPIRIT characters, Scott and Peighton didn't seem to have particularly obvious supernatural powers and I actually kind of liked that. They did have some minor things like visions and Peighton's understanding of languages, but it worked well with the story. I really liked the fact that the two of them were normal people and were able to act against something that was a lot stronger.
I loved Peighton as a character, she was strong and independent, not wanting people to save her and actually doing something about it. But on the flip side she did have moments of vulnerability which made her more accessible as a character.
The love story was more subtle than other books as well, again something that I liked. There wasn't the same level of mental connection as the other characters and I thought that it worked, which was probably also affected by the fact the two of them had already met each other and formed a relationship through Dell.
This was the most enjoyable of the three books, I felt that I could really get into it!

and Pandora on random/shuffleSAMANTHA RICKETTS: 25-30 long hair, dark, feisty. Sam grew up in a haunted house being able to hear ghosts that her father (a scientist) help conjure up and capture. They torment her for her whole childhood and she finally breaks free of them become a mythology tutor. She wakes up to find herself in the field of a church which blows up and she is rescued by Zander but doesn’t let her guard down. Lieutenant Zander Smith: 25-30 dark hair, military man. Zander can see ghosts and uses his ability to help the military team find and destroy the ghouls that they trace. He is fascinated by Samantha when he finds her on the field. He has had run ins with the ghost in the old house that she used to live in and find s that he is very protective of her and very attached.ANNA NEUVILLE had lived in Burke Flats most of her youth, had seen the comings and goings of the strange little town, but for her there was nothing magical about the place. Scary, dark, secretive, and definitely a place of unrest-those were the words that she would use to describe how she felt about her home in the mountains. That was until she met William Stiles. FIRST LIEUTENANT WILLIAM STILES never liked being so close to any hot spot. Something in Burke Flats wasn't just hot, it was steaming, especially out by the marsh. He was a strong-headed lifer; there was no way he was getting out of the service anytime soon. He had entered straight from high school and moved up the ranks quickly, gaining a college education and taking command in Iraq several times. He had a Master's in Homeland Security and a Bachelor's in Strategic Leadership. He had never questioned his abilities until Anna stepped into his life.PEIGHTON WEAK She was the one that Dell always called in. There was nothing that Peighton couldn’t figure out when she’s put in the right situation. Having witnessed Dell’s death, Peighton set out to solve the mystery that surrounded Aldenville, and she had Scott by her side to do it. Peighton came with the highest recommendations in her field, and Dell always requested her when she stumbled on the black hole. She is an expert at dry cave diving and anthropology. SPECIAL AGENT SCOTT EMBRY Embry was an ex-Special Ops, if anyone could ever be one, who transferred to the FBI’s special new division after his medical discharge. It was strange to step into a world outside his own after living in the military ranks for so long, but at the same time he had seen some things on his tours that brought the rest of the “known” world collapsing down on him. The S.P.I.R.I.T. division of the FBI was a bit different than the military units deployed around the country. Most of the agents he knew were the first in after everything was cleared and taken care of, but with Embry and his canine companion, they seemed to be the ones that stepped in just as everything came to a boil and things weren’t looking good for the unit members.
