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?

Short and Sweet:

Sweet Peril was everything I had hoped it would be and more. After loving Sweet Evil so much, I was afraid that this second installment might have the dreaded middle / second book slump. But oh no, Sweet Peril took the story to a completely different level.

Sweet Peril picks up where Sweet Evil ended. Anna is now doing the work for her father, despite her desire not to. However, with so much on the line, Anna knows that one slip might mean the doom of her and her friends. What was great about Sweet Peril was not only the complexity of the romance, but the addition of new characters. Plus, there is the possibility for the love triangle. While it could have gone horribly wrong, Wendy Higgins made it oh so perfect.

Final Verdict:

After Sweet Peril, I have to say that I am more in love with this series than ever. Plenty of answers are given with the addition of lots of new questions. Loved every moment of this sequel, and am dying to see what happens next.
