Book Review: Sweet Reckoning by Wendy Higgins

Sweet Reckoning by Wendy Higgins
Published 29th April 2014 by HarperTeen
Paperback, 400 pages
Synopsis:
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.
In the most sensual and fast-paced installment yet, Sweet Reckoning brings all the beloved Neph together one last time to fight for their freedom.
My Thoughts:
My bittersweet heart feels nothing but euphoric joy. Sweet Reckoning—which should be renamed to Sweet Feels…okay so maybe that sounds like an uber cheesy erotic novel but yeah, feels—has given me everything from intense sadness too immense happiness. I don’t think my heavy heart can take all of the emotion. 

As the saying goes, everything comes at a price and it really does fit in with this series. Throughout the books we’ve seen our main protagonist overcome many problems but it doesn’t always end well. In this epic finale Anna has to decide whom she’s fighting for and what she’s willing to give up in the process. I’ve really enjoyed watching Anna blossom from the weak, timid little girl we first met into a hardcore all singing, all dancing badass! 

Because this is the finale book in the trilogy I don’t want to give too much away by rattling on. However, can we just take a moment to discuss the ever so sexy and endearing Kaiden Rowe? Like Anna, he has taken on many challenges throughout the trilogy. We’ve seen him question his purpose and deny himself of what is natural to him in order to save the people he loves. As far as character development goes I think Wendy nailed this one perfectly.

Truth be told, I never thought we’d see the day that Kaiden and Anna have the chance to be happy together but it seems that Ms Higgins ships them just as much as we do. Enough so she’d give us what we all want and damn, I’m not one to read and tell but… it was mighty fine! How can something be so sensual yet so sweet at the same time? 

In this action packed, mind blowing conclusion we see Anna do everything she can to not only save the Nephilim but also mankind from the terrible demons that prowl the earth and revel in all things evil. The book isn’t always serious though, we get some heartwarming and humorous scenes that’ll either have you giggling like a schoolgirl or shedding a tear or two. Sweet Reckoning sees the return of many favourite characters as they join together in order to help Anna rid the world of all things horrendous. This trilogy is so much more than your average paranormal/fantasy novel and I think that the finale was definitely worth the wait as it was everything I could’ve hoped for.
