Review: Sweet Reckoning (The Sweet Triolgy #3) by Wendy Higgins

Happy Wednesday!  Today I am bringing to you the last in The Sweet Trilogy, Sweet Reckoning.  We will finally get to see what happens to the allied Nephilim.  When the Dukes really decide that Anna is a threat and her father is possibly a traitor then all stops are pulled and they throw many Nephilim her way to try to discover her secrets.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.

It’s time.

Evil is running rampant and sweet Anna Whitt is its target. Nobody knows when or how the Dukes will strike, but Anna and her Nephilim allies will do anything necessary to rid the earth of the demons and their oppressive ways.

The stakes are higher than ever, and Anna is determined that the love she feels will be her strength, not a liability. But trying to protect the ones she loves while running for her life and battling demonic forces proves to be perilous—especially as faces are changing and trust is fleeting. When the Duke of Lust sends Anna’s great love, Kaidan Rowe, to work against her, Anna must decide how much she’s prepared to risk.

In the most sensual and fast-paced installment yet, Sweet Reckoning brings all the beloved Neph together one last time to fight for their freedom.

Review:

Its time for the end.  It will either be Anna and her Nephilim allies or the Dukes.  Sides will be chosen and choices will be made.  The Dukes will send out the worst of the Nephilim to hurt Anna.  The only thing saving the others are that their focus is strictly on Anna and her father.  Soon, even Kaiden, is forced to work against her to continue the ruse that they have been using.  In the end some hearts will be broken and decisions that will change everything will be made.  It is the time a reckoning.  Which side will win?

This is the ultimate ending to this phenomenal series.  I had tears and cheers.  Characters you fall in love with will fall and you find your self crying out Why!  All of that aside, those are why this is one of the best endings of a series.  It wraps up what needed to be wrapped up along with some twists and turns that you don’t expect.  With the happiness of Anna and Kaiden comes sadness with other characters.  The world that Wendy Higgins created was one that I was truly sad to leave.  I wanted to know more about other characters and more about what happens next.  But, with all good series’ you will always be left that way.  I didn’t want to let go of Anna and Kaiden but in the end my heart was so full of them that it felt good to see the ending/beginning of their story.  All around this was a phenomenal book and story.  If my other two reviews haven’t encouraged you to snap this up then I hope this one has convinced you.  You are truly missing out not stepping into this world.

Review: Sweet Peril (The Sweet Trilogy #2) by Wendy Higgins

Happy Sunday!  Today I am sharing with you book two in The Sweet Trilogy.  Sweet Peril takes off where Sweet Evil left us.  This was a fantastic continuation of this series.  It dives us further into the world of Anna and the Nephilim.  The complications abound and so does the temptations.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.

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?

Review:

Now that Anna has had to begin “working” for her father whenever necessary things have become complicated. She hasn’t heard anything from Kaiden since he moved and her heart still pines for him.  But, now that her father has an intricate plan for them to try to overthrow the Dukes she and her fellow Nephilim, Kopano must go out and recruit others willing to fight for their side when everything goes down.  As time goes on things become more complicated and dangerous.  Will the Nephilim be able to join together before they are discovered?  Can Anna decide what is really important to her, her heart or the lives of those around her?

I adored the continuation of Anna and Kaiden’s story.  The addition of the love triangle between Anna, Kaiden and Kopano really highlighted the deep feelings between all of three of them and an interesting new side to the quiet Kopano.  We also get to meet more Nephilim and see the depravity that drives the Dukes and their children apart.  This part of the trilogy really dives into the heart of Anna’s father’s plan for her and the Nephilim.  Though his plan at first may seem self serving it truly is something that is complex and dangerous.  It is that part that really adds a lot of depth to Anna’s character.  But, there are also times where you see how she is still naïve in many ways.  Overall, I would whole-heartedly recommend reading this series.  You won’t regret it.
