I really like this series and am both excited and sad that Sweet Reckoning is the conclusion. The pace of the series has really picked up lately and it is obvious that the end is near. While this book was not my favorite of the trilogy, I still thought it was a satisfying installment.
The last time readers saw Anna and Kai they were trying to find allies among the other children of the evil Dukes in order to complete a plan to save them all from an eternity of torture in hell. Unfortunately, one of their main allies was murdered and now they are scrambling to keep their actions a secret while figuring out their next move. Anna is still trying to maintain her cover as the daughter of the Duke of Substance Abuse which is becoming more difficult as the other Dukes begin to suspect her.
Sweet Reckoning allowed the author to show how much both Anna and Kai have grown over the series. Anna is still a genuine and slightly naive young lady, but she has proven that she can be just as tough as any other YA heroine when the time comes. Her positive outlook is always refreshing to read about and never seems preachy to me. Kai has still maintained his sexy bad boy personality though it is muted a little thanks to his relationship with Anna. I do wish we had gotten a bit more of the conflict he feels while maintaining his cover as the son of the Duke of Lust while still being in love with Anna.
The relationship between Anna and Kai is, obviously, very strong and the author portrayed this nicely. I will admit that there was one development in regards to the love story of which I wasn't a huge fan. But, I can see how it worked with the overall storyline. They both are great characters that work well together despite their different backgrounds and childhoods.
One of the strongest elements for me in this series is the side characters. Anna and Kai's fellow Nephs like Kope, Ginger, Marna, and Blake along with Anna's best friend, Jay, all play big parts in this installment which I loved. These characters are well-developed and designed to be very important in Anna and Kai's story. I also enjoyed the emphasis on friendship in these books.
In terms of the plot, there wasn't a ton of parts that surprised me. But, I was entertained and had a hard time putting the book down when I had to go do real life stuff. I do wish there had been a bit more action in the conclusion, but, overall, I was happy with the way that everything was resolved.
While this was not the best YA paranormal series I've read, I did enjoy the ride and look forward to seeing what Wendy Higgins does next. I definitely recommend the Sweet trilogy for readers who like nice girl heroines, bad boy heroes, and a unique twist on the angel/demon myth.
I read this book in one sitting and was pulled in immediately. We see Anna where Higgins left her in Book 2. She now has to deal with getting ready for the rebellion. She is more aware of her power and intuition and has definitely grown from the beginning. What happens in the book totally took me by surprise, I cheered, and felt pretty much every emotion possible. The ending was priceless. I really couldn’t ask for a better ending to the series and this will be on the top of my book hangover list for sure. I love how in Book 3 Kaidian and Anna have more moments together, but I kept feeling like something was going to come out and catch them and ruin it all. The moments between the other characters are great too, emotions run high but it creates the right amount of drama needed for the scenes. Higgins has a way of creating magic in her books, her writing flows easily and sucks you in. The series has a religious undertone but its not preachy. It balances well between dark and light and like I mentioned before there is a fight between those who want to be free, to love and to make the world a better place. It definitely was not cheesy. There are more mature scenes in the book that were not in the previous books so it may not be ideal for the younger readers.
Overall the series was fantastic. I will miss reading about the Anna, Kai, Blake, Ginger, Marna, Jay, Kope and Z. I wonder if Higgins would do books based on the other characters….that would be amazing. So go and check out this series since it is now complete. These are very easy reads for the long weekend. You are sure to fall in love!
