Synopsis: 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.
Sweet Evil is a provocative paranormal romance with angels, demons and a sinful twist.
The paranormal concept behind this novel is something different than what I have encountered while reading paranormal romance. In the novel Nephilim, the children of fallen angels, live on Earth and embody a sin. Their most important work is to pull humans into sin. Sweet Evil explores the concepts of nature versus nurture ideas of sin. The book made me think about how we make sense of the bad things that others do.
Higgins writing is fun and addicting, and will appeal to teens and YA readers. However I did feel like some parts of the plot were spoon fed, we are told too much instead of being shown and allowed to create our own opinions.
