Blurb:

Anna Whitt, daughter of a guardian angel and a fallen one, promised herself she would never do the work of her father- polluting souls. She’d been naive to make such a claim. She’d been naive about a lot of things.
Haunted by demon whispers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her schools party girl. And all the while there’s Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.
When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself travelling the globe with Kopano, son of the Duke of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soob becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues hetween them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: Is loving someone worth risking your life?

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Anyway.. brief summary.

So in this one Anna has totally embraced her bad side and is now seen as the wild party girl. Putting up apperances to the demon whispers who sre watching her.

Anna hasn’t heard from Kaidan for at least six months and her heart can’t take the loss of him. She needs him like she needs air.

But other than her love for Kaidan comes a prophecy from the angels themselves and it seems as though Anna is the one they are talking about. Telling her father everything, he hatches a plan to get othet Nephilim on her side and for that she must travel to places shes never been. But instead of sending her straight to Kaidan, her father sends her to Syria with Kopano to find Zania, the daughter of the Duke of Hatred Sonellion. But thats not an easy trip as they thought, seeing as Zania has a hatred for all men…

And then they have to leave for London to see the twins Marna and Ginger who are quick to ally with her.

Then a pit stop in Australia to get Flynn, the son of the Duke og Greed Mammon, on there side. Of course while there Anna totally gets it on with Kopana, learns something new about him and then eavesdrops on a phone conversation between Kopano and Kaidan… which isn’t the greatest conversation, especially as it leaves her even more heartbroken than before.

But then its time to face Kaidan and thats when things come to the surface. Can they both put their differences aside for the better good? And will Kaidan finally admit how he feels about Anna?

Holy amazeballs! Wendy did it again! This one was even more gripping than the second one and the scenes between Kaidan and Anna.. oh god!!!

Aaaaaahhhhhh!!

This one had it all, heartbreak, teenage drama, love, hopeful redemption, tense scenes and above all the most important thing; Kaidan.

I just…. Kaidan… no words can do him justice. Yeah he can be a cocky little shite but when his true colours surface when he’s around Anna, you can see that he’s vulnerable and in a desperate case of needing love.

And Anna… Anna was a little less naive in this one and really let her feisty side show through more which I liked. I love her friendship with Marna and how she was seen to care for Zania.

This story was more gripping than the first one cos a lot was riding on it. Kaidan and Anna’s feelings for each other played a big part in this book and at one point you are practically screaming at him to tell her how he feels. And when you learn more stuff about him, your heart just melts.

And Kopano. I like him and if Anna hadn’t seen Kaidan first then maybe they would have had a chance but they wouldn’t have worked out.

Kaidan and Anna have more raw and emotional energy between them and the sparks fly. They are made for each other.

And Blake.. gotta love Blake. He’s just the guy you want as your best friend (and boyfriend of course!) He knowd how to cheer you up and to take your minf off things and even though he puts on this mask like Kaidan you can see through it at times. I liked getting to know him better in this one.

This book is a brilliant and amazing sequel to Sweet Evil and even more questions are raised and it gets you thinking. Sweet Peril was definitely a more heart story as it tugged on you emotionally.

And what happend to one of the characters… I was just getting to like them Wendy! Shame on you. But I know why you had to do it.

Please read!!

I’m on to the last book now! Eeeeeek more Kaidan!
