Fans of Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series will be drawn to Wendy Higgins’s sexy, thrilling Sweet Evil trilogy. Sweet Peril, the second book in this hot YA trilogy, focuses on the battle between light and dark, good and evil, within Anna Whitt, the child of a guardian angel mother and a demon father. Anna promised herself she’d never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She’d been naive to make such a claim. Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means earning an unwanted reputation as her school’s party girl. And all the while there’s gorgeous bad-boy Kaidan Rowe, the son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.Anna discovers it is her fate to banish demons from the earth, and save the other Nephilim from their dark destiny. 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’ve missed Anna and Kaidan so much!
We learn a lot about some of our side characters, and Anna is sent on a mission to find certain Nephilim. She finds herself questioning a lot of things. One of them is how she sees things with Kaidan. There are a few moments where Anna sets herself up for heartbreak, and humiliation. But I think those instances gave her the confidence to face Kai, and give him a piece of her mind. You can tell Kaidan is hurting from the choices he had to make, but dang, cut a girl some slack.
I read this in less than a day. I couldn’t put it down. There is a decent amount of action, and some heartbreaking scenes. I just can’t imagine how I would be able to be there in some of these scenarios. I love Anna’s dad. He has her back, and wants to see her succeed.
Sorry this review is so short, but if you haven’t read it there would be too many spoilers. I know I NEED Sweet Reckoning now!!! I have to know how this trilogy ends, and what happens next.
