Publication : April 2013 by Harper Teen

This is the second book in a series. This review will spoil you if you haven’t read Sweet Evil.

Goodreads’ summary : Anna Whitt, the daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, promised herself she’d never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She’d been naive to make such a vow. She’d been naive about a lot of things.

Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school’s party girl. Her life has never looked more bleak. 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 traveling the globe with Kopano, son of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soon 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 between them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: is loving someone worth risking their life?

Oh how I missed this world !

Sweet Peril takes place months after where Sweet Evil left us. Anna is working for her father. At least she is trying to convince the spirits of it. Obviously, she is still desperately in love with Kaidan.

There’s travel in this one. Anna’s father is sending her alongside Kope all around the world in order to find allies nephilims. Soon, the twins are aware of it.

I really love what Anna has become. She is much more strong minded, and has become such a badass kickass female ! She may be one of my favorite characters, for 2015.
I found really interesting the interaction between Anna and Kope.

Finally Kaidan changed his mind about the whole situation (see how I’m desperately trying to avoid spoilers, here ?!)
In my opinion, his change of mind seems a little too sudden. The atmosphere helped, so I was just “meh” about that part. The Meh quickly become an “Oh yeah” though.

I was so not expecting the end, especially the final plot twist. It promises a really interesting sequel.

There is a lot of characters development in this book.

  • First, Anna. I already told it, way stronger, kickass female. She does what she needs to in order to stay alive.
  • Kaidan wants to prove himself worthy. That’s interesting. And totally in contradiction with his actions to keep Anna safe.
  • Kope is taking more place in this book. We get to see his best and his worst.
  • Marna is still the same but she’ll become more important in the future.
  • Ginger surprised me. A good surprise. She is more human in this book.
  • Blake is less dark and edgy in this one. On the contrary, he is bringing a light humor.

What I liked :
– the plot and the narration
– Anna/Kaidan
– Ginger’s behavior
– New nephilims to learn about

What I didn’t like :
– Kaidan’s quick change of mind
– the jealousy part, way too predictable.

Anyway, I really really enjoyed this book. Plus, it got me out of my reading slump !

5 stars
