Review: The Sweet Trilogy #2, Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins

Sweet Peril (The Sweet Trilogy, #2)

Blurb from Goodreads

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?

My Thoughts
Although this is one of the most anticipated books of 2013, I didn’t feel in a rush to read it since I didn’t quite like Anna Whitt, the narrator and the main character of the story. Then, most of my friend like, 90% of them read it as soon as it released and gave it at least 4 stars. They tempted me, so here I am a week after it was out writing its review.

I liked this book better than its prequel, Sweet Evil.
There are significance improvements in this second book of Sweet Trilogy. Anna isn’t a clueless-helpless-innocence-naive nephilim anymore. She prepares herself with martial arts, she (sort of) works for her dad and she knows her role and willing to take part of the mission. I like her here. I also found Kaidan as her love interest more interesting for me. I liked that he stay away from Anna to keep her save. His love for her but kind of hesitate to let her in add the tension to their relationship. I’m eager to know what will happen next. And the demons, the whisperer and other bad guys are truly evil here which I like because it brings something to look for and more action to the story.

But I have one doubtful thing. Can the demon be erased from the earth? It sounds a wishful thinking for me. Demon represents bad and evil things. As much as their evilness, there will always be dark alongside the light.

In the end, this book makes me begin to love Anna, Kaidan, Patti, Kopano, Blake, Ginger, Marna, Zania and even the Dukes.
Result: 4/5 Stars
