Overview

Fans of Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series will be drawn to Wendy Higgins's sexy, thrilling Sweet Evil series.

Sweet Peril focuses on the battle between light and dark, good and evil, within Anna Whitt, the child of a guardian angel mother and a demon father. Anna promised herself she'd never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She'd been naive to make such a claim. Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means earning an unwanted reputation as her school's party girl. And all the while there's gorgeous bad-boy Kaidan Rowe, the son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.

Anna discovers it is her fate to banish demons from the earth, and save the other Nephilim from their dark destiny. 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 their life?

Gr 9 Up—In this steamy sequel to Sweet Evil (HarperTeen, 2012), Anna Whitt, born to a guardian angel and a fallen one, finds herself bearing the weight of a prophecy that predicts her leadership in a Nephilim army that she must establish to rid the world of demons. Sick of being under the constant watch of threatening demon whisperers, she decides to play her high school's good-time girl and embraces a party lifestyle. Her father, Belial, the Duke of Substance Abuse, sends her off to recruit other Neph allies, with the aid of Kope, who carries a torch for Anna. The duo find themselves traversing the globe, from Syria to New Zealand, in order to convince others to join her cause. She not only has demons to contend with, but also Kope's lovesick glances and her own heartache for Kaiden Rowe, the son of the Duke of Lust. Higgins ensures that Sweet Peril hits every paranormal romance trope squarely on the head. Good girl tempted by seductive but distant British bad boy rocker? Check. Threatening demons that pop in right before a long-anticipated smooch? Check. There's even a handy purity clause in the prophecy that guarantees that the sexual tension stays high. Fans will sweep through Higgins's tale in anticipation of the trilogy's finale. The simple narrative style and straightforward plot make it a good pick for reluctant readers and dedicated genre fans alike.—Joanna Sondheim, Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School, New York City
VOYA - Barbara Allen
Anna is the daughter of a guardian angel and a fallen one. She is supposed to go around polluting souls for the underworld by making them drink and party. She only does this so that the evil spirits watching her will not find out that she truly does not want to hurt anyone. Anna has recently discovered that she is the key to a prophecy that will rid the world of demons that plague humanity. She must join forces with other Nephilim and give them hope that everything will turn out right. As it turns out, Anna is not the only child of demons that does not like hurting humans. Anna and her friends must put aside all temptations and differences to overcome the demons and fulfill the prophecy. This is the second book in Higgins's trilogy. It contains sex, drugs, alcohol, and rock and roll. Lust and vices are discussed in detail. Higgins paints a wonderful portrayal of the struggle between the forces of good and evil, and the teens stuck in the gray area in between. Love is also a key aspect of the book. Should you risk love if it means someone might die? It is, ultimately, a story of redemption for wrong doings of the past. It is a definite page-turner that will entice avid and reluctant readers alike. Reviewer: Barbara Allen
