Sweet Peril (The Sweet Trilogy Book 2) by Wendy Higgins
I have a new fan crush on Wendy Higgins! This was such a fun YA read, and I must read the third book ASAP!
The first half of this book is spent on plot development, which was wonderful. The first book centered mostly about Anna and her relationship with people around her, so it was nice to see the plot moving in a solid direction. Here in book two, Anna has discovered a prophecy that changes everything in the realm of the Nephilim, and with the help of her father and fellow nephilim Kopano, she sets out to fulfill it. Anna and Kopano travel the globe searching for allies in the possible future battle for good, and face many dangers while they do so.
I loved the friendship that built between Anna and Kopano. Kopano is a great guy trying to overcome his demons, literally. As a side character he had great presence and as a reader I’d like to know more about the mystery that is Kopano. Zania was also a great side character, her story sad and tragic, but the author gives us tidbits of hope for a happy future for her.
The scenes with Kaidan! Holy friggin hell they were beautifully written!! I just soaked up all of the lusting and angst between them and enjoyed. Ms. Higgins writes my kind of romance angst and I loved every minute of it. Kaidan developed quite a bit in this book, his search to be a better man showed real depth and conviction.
Overall, this book was riveting and much more developed than the first one. I look forward to reading the final installment and finding out what happens to all my favorite characters when it is released later this month! 4.5 out of 5 stars for this book.
