Publisher’s summary: Embrace Your Destiny
Anna Whitt, daughter of a guardian angel and a fallen one, promised herself she'd never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She'd been naive to make such a claim. 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. 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 the Duke 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 your life?
Anyways, enough about me; let’s talk about Sweet Peril. Right from the very first page, I was instantaneously sucked into the story and I was almost totally satisfied before I even got started! Well, actually, there’s an amazing scene that isn’t really on the very first page but its close enough and pretty much at the very beginning of the book that I’d say it “almost” totally satisfied my craving for this second book in Wendy’s Sweet Trilogy series. But, without a doubt, I was definitely fully satisfied by the end! And a heads up...this review is going to be heavily surrounding the characters because I think that is one of this book’s/series biggest strengths.
First thing I loved about this book is that we get to meet two new Nephilim in Sweet Peril! I loved learning about these new Nephilim, and I grew attached to them the moment they showed up on the pages. And then, near the end of the book, we’re introduced to this other young Nephilim from afar who had me totally freaking out! I’m thinking Wendy might have just introduced us to a whole new evil complication. I’m getting chills thinking about it right now.
For all you Kope fans, there’s a lot of him in this book, and I’m actually really happy with it. I can’t say that I would have liked it if I knew beforehand that he would be in the majority of this book, but I’m so happy now that he was. I think that in Sweet Evil I didn’t really allow myself the chance to get attached to his character too much, mainly because I thought of him too much as a complication. Yes, I think that, in a sense, he’s part of a love triangle…but not really. But in Sweet Peril I actually allowed myself to connect with him, and I just love that guy.
Then there are the twins! How can you not love those girls???!!! There are enough of them in this book that we get to love them even more and I really hope that they will be in the majority of the last book.
Last, but not least, there’s Kaidan! Kaidan, oh Kaidan! I love you!!! I’m not saying too much about him because it’s just too much of a spoiler, but…why oh why Kai are you a fictional character?
There is a lot of craziness in the end, and when I was finished with Sweet Peril I was absolutely thrilled with the entire book. I can say that my only negative feelings are that I now have to wait for the resolution. I’m thinking that this is a series I’ll read over and over again.
