Review: 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?
This book was everything, and so much more! I don’t think words can accurately describe how much I enjoyed reading this book. There is the perfect balance of action, romance, high school drama, and friendship that left me with nothing but a smile on my face. You know you have truly found an amazing author when the sequel blows the first book out of the water and Sweet Peril did exactly that. Anna’s father is absolutely hilarious and had me in tears at moments with his take no sh*t and stay away from boys attitude.
Kaidan… I have so much sighing going on, I just can’t contain my inner fangirl. I am in love/lust with Kaidan; however, Kope isn’t too bad either. I mean d*mn, once I learned more about him, he was digging a place out for himself in my heart. I loved how Anna is doing what she needs to do to survive but she is also having an internal struggle. Her moral compass never waivers in her quest for justice and it is awe-inspiring. Her and Kai are resilient, determined, and occasionally stubborn. It has been several days since I put the book down and these characters are still plaguing my mind.
Wendy poetically captures heart-ache in Kai’s lyrics, and accurately portrays the trials of young love while not losing the main story. This story has me bewitched and I am so excited to see how it all plays out, lets hope my fangirl heart can handle it.
