Title: Sweet Evil & Sweet Peril
Author: Wendy Higgins
Genre: YA/Paranormal Romance/Fantasy
Release Date: May 1, 2012 & April 30, 2013, respectively
I have recently finished the second novel in the Sweet Evil trilogy and let me tell you guys, it definitely has its' fair share of sweet and salty! The main character, Anna, is a sweet Southern girl whose simple and clean life is turned upside down when she realizes that she is of angelic descent, or a Nephilim. She meets Kaiden, the British bad boy, and we all know where it goes from there. The novel has a good amount of REAL humor, which is great because not many books make me laugh, they just come through as a sad attempt at humor. The dialogue is pretty darn witty, so we get a sense of the characters' differing personalities.
Now, let's talk characters! (Oh goody, my favorite part!) Surprisingly, my favorite character would not be Anna for many reasons: she continuously mopes over Kaiden after their breakup and she keeps trying to contact him like a lost puppy, which annoyed me to heck because I wanted her to stand up and say "Hey, I don't need him, I am my own person and I can handle the world on my own!" (huh, all of my reasons revolve around Kaiden...) Although, I do find Anna to be the most relatable because I also am the quiet girl who blends into the background. My overall favorite character would have to be Kaiden! I mean, come on, he's British. I respect how he tries his best to make his actions for the betterment of Anna, like attempting to stay away from her and standing up for her at the end of Sweet Evil (no, ma'am, absolutely no spoilers!).
Overall, I would have to give Sweet Evil and Sweet Peril a combined rating of 4/5 stars just because Anna became so freakishly obsessed with Kaiden at some parts and would not stop bringing him up.
If you love angels and demons and all that sweet stuff mixed in with a dash of romance and adventure, the Sweet Evil trilogy should top your reading list!
P.S. The third book, Sweet Reckoning, comes out Spring/Summer 2014!
