Sweet Reckoning (Sweet Evil Trilogy #3) by Wendy Higgins
Sweet Reckoning (Sweet Evil)
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.
Man I am sad this series is over. I want more Kaiden and Anna! So Sweet Reckoning is the third and final book in the Sweet Evil Trilogy (though there will be a book from Kai's POV covering all three books so I cannot wait for that to come out!!!). It starts off with everyone having to be really careful to not be noticed doing anything wrong. The Duke's are suspicious of Anna and her friends so they have been watching them closely. They finally have started to let up since for the past months they haven't stepped out of line, but the Duke's are worried that Anna is the one from the prophecy. Obviously they don't want that prophecy to come true as it would be bad news for them so things are a bit tricky.
One of my favorite parts came pretty quick, quicker than I thought it would. I will say that I literally did a happy dance around the room when I got to the part where they figure out how to fool Kai's dad into thinking Anna is not the one that the prophecy is about. I mean it is what I thought they should do anyways, but when it happened so early in the book I was just like YES! I love them! So so good.
So they are able to fool the Duke's for a bit, and try to assemble as many allies as they can, but things come to a head at the end. I will say right after I finished the big showdown I was like yes!! Way to go! Oh no, that means this will be over soon...but then I thought about the big showdown and it was a little not as epic as it could have been. There were some parts, like the sword's roll, which were not really that key of a part. I mean the sword is talked about a lot so I did expect it to play a main roll in the showdown at the end, but it didn't really. Still I did enjoy the book. I was sad when it ended and now I will just have to wait to read Kai's version of events. I cannot wait!!
