Fans of author Wendy Higgins, Sweeties as they’re known, will be pleased by the third and final installment of the Sweet Evil series.
Sweet Reckoning came into my hands when I
fangirled attended Wendy’s Why We Love YA Romance panel at Virginia Festival of the Book. I didn’t go looking to score the next book early. Wendy is just that generous with bloggers.
Sweet Evil is the story of half-angel, half-demon Anna Whitt.
What if there were teens whose lives literally depended on being bad influences?
This is the reality for sons and daughters of fallen angels. Tenderhearted Southern girl Anna Whitt was born with the sixth sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She’s aware of a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull toward danger, but it isn’t until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage and her willpower is put to the test. He’s the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.
Forced to face her destiny, will Anna embrace her halo or her horns?
Sweet Peril follows up on Anna’s promise never to do her father’s work 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?
Sweet Reckoning delivers on every promise. It brings back every relationship readers loved and every character who made us cringe and cry. And she gives us some surprises, too. BIG surprises. It has all the warmth I’ve come to expect from Wendy’s work and, like books that stick with me long after I’m done, there’s heartbreak tempered with hope.
Yes, child, it is a kissing book.
Happy reading, Sweeties.
The book launch party for Sweet Reckoning is this Thursday.
