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?
Let’s just talk about how FANTASTIC this book is.
Looks like Anna’s not so innocent anymore. Well, okay so she kind of is. But she’s bada**! She can whip around and take people down, AND throw knives to rival Kaidan now.
You know, when I began reading this book I was sad because it felt like I wouldn’t get to see much of Kai, what with him moving all the way across the US. And then Anna and Kope started on their international travels to find allies to eventually fight the Dukes and fulfill the prophecy that Sister Ruth’s spirit revealed to Anna (if you have no idea what I’m talking about and you haven’t read the first book yet, you should probably start there;)). So it seemed like Kai would be playing a backseat role in this book. But alas! I got my fill eventually and let me tell you, it was worth waiting for. Anna and Kai are about the cutest, ever.
Yeah, this book is full of all sorts of tension you could think of, and those tensions are the stuff I love. Sexual tension, awkward tension, angry tension, hightened suspense–this book keeps you on your toes! Especially with this whole take-down-the-Dukes-because-it’s-your-prophetic-destiny plot. The whisperers are everywhere and just when they think they’re safe is exactly when they aren’t. Someone DIES and the rest of them witness it!
Talk about tense.
The best news about all of this? SWEET RECKONING IS ALREADY OUT!!! I love this book and I love this series.
