Arc Review: Sweet Reckoning by Wendy Higgins

Title: Sweet Reckoning (The Sweet Trilogy #3)
Author: Wendy Higgins
Release Date: April 29, 2014

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:
Sweet Reckoning is definitely the best book of the trilogy. I am feeling so much emotions happening at once but the dominant emotion I feel is happiness. Sweet Reckoning was epic. It was AMAZING. It is everything I hoped for and more. I loved, Loved, LOVED this book.

Sweet Reckoning picks up where Sweet Peril leaves off. The battle on earth is about to begin with Anna in the lead. This book kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I was so scared for her and everyone else. I just wanted everyone to be ok.

Many times this book left me feeling anxious, shocked, dismayed, and other times I just burst out laughing.  And can I say how much I love Kaidan? I definitely fell deeper for him by the end of this book. Words cannot express how much I love him.

What I loved most about this book is the overall feeling of hope it brought me. Everything seemed so bleak, no one knew if they were going to survive what was to come. Even with all of that, they had to believe and hope that they would get through it.

The secondary characters just added to the book. We get to see everyone one last time: Ginger, Marna, Kope, Blake, Zania, Patti, Jay, Veronica and of course Anna and Kaidan. I think Anna has the greatest character development in the series. In Sweet Evil, she was innocent and which each book she had to come out of her comfort zone.  She was a little unsure of herself. In Sweet Reckoning, she is a strong woman who knows what needs to be done and she is ready to fight; for herself, her family, and most importantly her one true love, Kaidan.

I am so sad now that it is over. I will certainly miss the Nephs and the world Wendy Higgins created. Sweet Reckoning is one of the best series ending books I have ever read.  My heart is so full of happiness.
