Book Description (from Goodreads):
Anna Whitt, the daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, promised herself she’d never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She’d been naive to make such a vow. She’d been naive about a lot of things.
Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school’s party girl. Her life has never looked more bleak. And all the while there’s Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.
When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself traveling the globe with Kopano, son of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soon becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues between them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: is loving someone worth risking their life?(
I read Sweet Evil (Book 1 in the Trilogy) last February and it became one of my favorite books, this week I decided to listen the Audiobook and I loved too. The narration by Erin Mallon was really good and I liked the different voices she made for the characters (especially Anna and Kaidan).
After finishing the Audiobook I searched for Sweet Peril in my Kindle, I found it and I couldn’t help but start reading it, I needed to know what was going to happen with Anna, Kai and Kop. From page one I was engaged to the story, I loved the writing and how things started to take its place.
In this book we learn more about the story between the Nephilim and the Dukes, and also about Anna’s role.
I like how well developed and interesting are the characters in this and the previous book (Sweet Evil), and I particularly enjoyed reading about the relationship between Anna and the rest of the Neph (especially Kai, Kop and Marna), and the interactions she has with her father Belial.
To me, the story has it all to be an enjoyable reading, is exciting, there’s romance, intrigue, some twists and best of all, I was satisfied with the way this sequel ended (I won’t give any spoilers here).
This was another great book by Wendy Higgins and I really recommend it (as well as Sweet Evil, Book 1), I’ll definitely be reading Sweet Reckoning as soon as is released (I already pre-order the book and the release date is April 2014, sniff sniff).
Ahhh and to deal with months of waiting until Book 3 is released… well I think I’ll be buying and listening the Audiobook of Sweet Peril.
