ARC Review: Sweet Reckoning

Sweet Reckoning
Sweet Reckoning by Wendy Higgins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s time.

Evil is running rampant and sweet Anna Whitt is its target. Nobody knows when or how the Dukes will strike, but Anna and her Nephilim allies will do anything necessary to rid the earth of the demons and their oppressive ways.

The stakes are higher than ever, and Anna is determined that the love she feels will be her strength, not a liability. But trying to protect the ones she loves while running for her life and battling demonic forces proves to be perilous—especially as faces are changing and trust is fleeting. When the Duke of Lust sends Anna’s great love, Kaidan Rowe, to work against her, Anna must decide how much she’s prepared to risk.

Sweet Reckoning, on the whole, was a great end to the series. It has a good pace, a great storyline, a formidable heroine and a well-written ending. Anna is gearing up for the battle of her life, which means until then she has to lay low and hide her intentions from the Dukes. The Duke of Lust, particularly, is suspicious of her and is literally trying to sniff out her true nature. Secret meetings with the other Nephs become risky, particularly those with Kai, because they can’t be caught in love with each other. Even their allies have to protect their own loved ones, and that was the major arc of the story. The Nephs are tired of being oppressed by their fathers, and sick of leading humanity astray. They all take little moments of joy, only to go back to the drudgery of their life. So, now they finally stand up to their fathers and take back their lives.

Anna is a lovable character, with her shyness, sweet nature and her dorkiness when it comes to Kai and in this book, she grows into a warrior. There are quite some action scenes in the book where she kicks ass, and even when she doesn’t, her bravery in the face of the demons is worthy of applause. Her chemistry with Kai, well – that was off the charts in this books. Prepare for some sexy times guys, because they literally don’t keep their hands off each other for about half the book. Jay and Marna’s relationship was also sweet and heartbreaking. Overall, the atmosphere of the book was dangerous sprinkled with good family times. The only thing that I found a bit unnerving was the whole purity thing for Anna – I get that it is an angel book, which means it derives a lot from Christian mythology but it was getting too religious at times. The rest, however, was amazing and I honestly couldn’t picture a more beautiful ending to the series.

Received an ARC from Harper Collins via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review
