Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins

“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?”

It’s Meaghan again! I just finished the second book of the Sweet Evil series, and liked it way more than the first book. Review below!

“We had a secret knowledge that demons couldn’t fathom. They saw love as a weakness, but they were wrong. Love would keep us going, love was our strength.”

Stars (Out of 10): 8/10

Overall Thoughts: I definitely liked this book wayyy more than the first. The tension between Kaidan and Anna definitely let up a lot, and Anna became stronger. A plot also appeared, so it feels like there’s a reason to actually continue with the series! Overall, I’m actually excited to read the last book now and see how it all plays out.

SPOILERS BEGIN HERE

The Good: We saw growth in our characters, a plot that appeared, and Kaidan finally stopping his on and offness towards Anna, which I was getting really sick of.

The Bad: I feel like Jay and Veronica, and Anna’s entire normal life in general, kinda disappeared without anyone seeming to worry about that. How did she explain away her party lifestyle to Jay and Veronica? Her classes didn’t suffer? At least she’s graduated now, so the lack of a “normal life” can make more sense for a while.

The Characters: I think we definitely saw some growth in Anna this book. She became stronger, both physically and mentally, and actually talked back to Kaidan about he was so on and off and how it wasn’t fair. I also liked that we got to see more of the other Neph, and learn more about the others outside of their circle.

The Plot: Oh dear plot how I had missed you in the first book! We finally know why this story is even being told, and what hopefully will happen by the end of the series!

The Favorite Character: I really liked Zania and Blake, but Anna is becoming cooler too.
