Title: Sweet Evil (The Sweet Trilogy #1)
Author: Wendy Higgins
Format: Paperback (HarperTeen | Borrowed)
Summary (Goodreads): Embrace the Forbidden
What if there were teens whose lives literally depended on being bad influences?
This is the reality for sons and daughters of fallen angels.
Tenderhearted Southern girl Anna Whitt was born with the sixth sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She’s aware of a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull toward danger, but it isn’t until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage and her willpower is put to the test. He’s the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.
Forced to face her destiny, will Anna embrace her halo or her horns?
My thoughts: This book was amazing but sadly I took a week to read it. How contradicting. I read this book immediately after Unearthly by Cynthia Hand. Which is a good thing though as I didn’t have to “switch” mode as I always have to when I’m reading a new book of a different genre. This has became one of my fav angel books. Its even better than Lauren Kate’s Fallen series.
Rating: 5/5 stars
Things I liked:
~The pacing (it was acceptable). Yes there are parts whereby things are slow but those parts are necessary to make us to better understand the upcoming climax.
~The characters. Anna’s a great female protagonist. Wendy Higgins did a great job in showing how Anna became a bad-ass, daring girl from the timid, always wants to be on the safe side kind of girl. Oh and Kai….. drools, he’s the perfect bad-ass rich male protagonist for this type of situation. In some books, such guys just pisses me off as they just don’t fit well into that situation or they don’t enter in the right time.
~ The whole concept behind this story. If not for the great world building, the whole story would have crumbled. It would be a torture as we don’t understand the world that the characters live in. Am i right?
I would really recommend this book to anyone who likes angel books or who has enjoyed Unearthly. Yes every book has flaws but the flaws don’t stand out as much as the good points of this book.
