Staff Reviews

Wendy Higgins’ debut novel Sweet Evil is an exciting new look at angels and demons.  Anna has always known that she is different from other kids.  Her senses are supercharged and she has the unique ability to see and feel people’s emotions.  She always assumed that she was alone with this ability, that is until she meets Kaidan.  Now she is discovering that her heritage is not the typical teen story.  Her father is a fallen angel, or demon, and her mother is an angel.  The fact that she was born from theses two conflicting types of angels is completely unheard of.  Not only is she learning about her parents, but she is also learning that due to her father’s betrayal she is expected to do the work of Lucifer.  Now she has to learn to deal with her ever changing emotions towards Kaidan while she tries to avoid working as a demon.

I was a little skeptical when I started reading this book.  I was afraid that the seven deadly sins theme would be too trite and cheesy, but Higgins did an incredible job with it.  The offspring of the demons are all very interesting characters and even though they each represent a specific sin or vice their characters are developed enough that you want to learn more about them.  There was never a time when I thought they were one dimensional or limited due to their “sin label”.  Higgins did a great job showing Anna as a very naive teen who has to quickly grow-up and learn the harsh realities of life.  I am really excited to see how the story progresses.  I finished the book and immediately had to get book two, Sweet Peril, which luckily was just released.  If you enjoy reading about fallen angels, this would be a great series to read next.

Fans of Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series will be drawn to Wendy Higgins's sexy, thrilling Sweet Evil series.

What if there were teens whose lives literally depended on being bad influences? This is the reality for sons and daughters of fallen angels.

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 Anna, the ultimate good girl, has always had the advantage of her angel side to balance the darkness within. It isn't until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage and her willpower is put to the test. He's the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.

Forced to face her destiny, will Anna embrace her halo or her horns?
