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.
My hope for a great final book looked like came true when I started reading this book. The first few chapters were really good. There were so many things happened at the same time with good pace. One moment I felt an adrenaline rush with Anna and another moment I was swoon over her relationship with Kaidan and other characters. It held my attention and made me glue to the story.
Unfortunately it didn’t last long. At 40% of the story, the middle part of the book, it was quite drag on with Anna and Kaidan romance. I love them, don’t get me wrong. I was also happy that they finally can have their relationship but at the same time it was kinda lose focus on their main role in the grand scheme of the series. Their romance has bigger part of the book, more than what they have to deal over the Dukes and the demons. Looking back now it was their willing to put their relationship aside for the greater role that made me liked this series. I remember that I wasn’t quite impressed by Sweet Evil but its ending, when Anna let Kaidan go that made me continue to Sweet Peril. And in Sweet Peril, although they couldn’t deny their feeling anymore, it was their role that they put first. I know that it’s Anna’s love that is considered can save the neph, so it was quite understandable if they show more romance in this book. But still I kinda hoped there are scenes which they prepare for the battle, rather than they go with the flow and suddenly know what they have to do at the last minutes. In the end it wasn’t as grand as I thought it would be and a bit anticlimactic for me.
I think this is a good ending for the series. It isn’t as epic as I thought before I read it but is still good, nonetheless.
