SWEET PERIL by WENDY HIGGINS

Sweet Peril
by Wendy Higgins
Published: April 2013
Publisher: Harper Teen
Genre: YA, fantasy, romance
*This will not be a spoiler free review, as it is the second book in a trilogy*

"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?" -Taken from Goodreads


This is the second book in the Sweet Evil trilogy. Although I enjoyed this one, it definitely wasn't a patch on the first. 

The book started off as exciting because Anna and Kope were off travelling the world in order to gather allies for the impending battle against the Dukes but it then seemed to be more focused on Anna and Kaidan's relationship rather than the matter of the incident of which this book should have mostly focused on. It was only towards the end did it start to get very tense and had the same thrill as the first book.

The angst was just a bit too much for me to say that I really enjoyed it, as I said in my previous review of the first book, I completely understand why Kaidan and Anna act the way they do around each other, but I really don't need chapter after chapter reminding me of it. 

This definitely follows the trend of having the second book in a trilogy to be more of a filler book than anything else, so although it didn't capture me, I still enjoyed it because I am really interested in the world and the characters. 


3/5 STARS
