Fans of Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series will be drawn to Wendy Higgins's sexy, thrilling Sweet Evil series.
Sweet Peril 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?
Sweet Peril Review – Book 2 of the Sweet Evil series.
Damn it, Anna!! She was so good in book 1. She had her moments of embarrassing desperation but that’s nothing compared to Chapter 2 in this one. Oh man! Why? Why? Why? For a virgin she sure is easy.
So so so so delusional!! She continuously contradicts herself when it comes to Kai. She acknowledges that she’s delusional and yet hurts every time Kai dismisses her and acts like they had this whole epic affair that entitles her to everything about him. When in actuality, they only spent a week or so together. Ugh!
And damn her friends are stupid enablers. She was doing good until they pushed their noses into her business.
It’s so good to see her finally start seeing how little she knows of the world she belongs to and her inner monologue and intentions make up for delusions towards Kaidan. I also really liked that she was aware of her lack of skills to protect herself and does something to fix that. Things have a way of working out but the journey was a bit ugly…
I loved seeing how Anna and John’s relationship just blossoms and to see the demon actually have feelings towards his daughter.
Now we get to see what the big fight will be. How it’s shaping up to be. But the Dukes definitely have it coming.
Can’t wait for the Neph to come together and fight for what they deserve.
