Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins Author or This or That!
Posted by Krystal Larson at 9:43 AM Wednesday, April 25, 2012
1)Hamburger or Cheeseburger
2)Mountains or Beaches
This one’s hard…I LOVE both, but I’llgo with beaches.
3)Vanilla or Chocolate (there *is* a right answer to this one)
Chocolate. Did I get it right?!
4)Standalones or Sequels
*sighs* Sequels…although I detestcliffhangers. Then again, there’s something very satisfying about a standalone…probablythe lack of a cliffhanger.
5)Winter or Summer
6)Telekinesis or Teleportation
7)See, smell, touch, taste, or hear
In order for me: touch, see, smell,hear, taste
8)hand or leg
9)TV or Computer
Computer all the way!
10)red, blue, green, purple, orange, yellow, white, or black
What if there were teens whose lives depended on being bad influences? This is life for sons and daughters of fallen angels in Sweet Evil.
Tenderhearted Southern girl, Anna Whitt, was born with the sixth sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She’s aware of a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull toward danger, but it isn’t until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage, and her will-power is put to the test. He’s the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.
A cross-country trip to meet her father forces Anna to face the reality that hope and love are not options for her kind. When she confronts her destiny, will Anna embrace her halo or her horns?
This book has a fresh, different look on the Nephilim, one that is heavily detailed in the novel. The reader will meet Anna, the main character, right away. Anna doesn't know who her father is, she is cared for by Patti, her stand-in mother. The prologue will draw the reader in right away and begin the mystery behind Anna's birth. The last statement will have the reader wondering and be explained perfectly later in the book. Although Anna's life has been relatively normal thus far, she has to be ready for change....according to a few, her destiny demands it.
Meeting hot, charismatic boys with weird ulterior purposes happens all the time, right? Not really, but when Anna meets Kai her story takes off. The reader may be taken with Kai at first, but as he/she sinks further into the story, Anna's choice is not so clear. Kai can be impulsive, protective, rude, and angry. He isn't the ideal boyfriend, but he knows what Anna is experiencing. Anna was by far my favorite character. Through this book she is brave, determined, and kind. The reader can easily relate to and like her. Her choices in the book are admirable; she has a couple of faults, the reader may want to shake her once or twice, but those faults serve to make her character more believable. The other characters, particularly the other Nephilim, are fun to get to know. They will probably take the reader by surprise, their personalities are not the "norm."
If you are a reader looking for romance, mystery, intrigue, action, and fantasy, pick up this book! Days after reading this one, I found myself remembering Anna and the surprising ending. The author writes the scenes so that they flow perfectly. With a fairly complicated, ever-changing plot, the reader could get confused, but the author provides more than enough detail to prevent this from happening. This book is highly recommended to young adult/teen readers.
