Review: Sweet Evil By: Wendy Higgins

Sweet Evil (The Sweet Trilogy, #1)Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Anna Whitt has known that she isn't "normal". She has senses that no other human could possess, she sees emotions and auras, and lately she has been able to see a mist floating with people. Her memory goes as far back as in utero. When she meets bad boy Kaidan Rowe - she realizes she is not alone - She is one of the Nephilim, she is the daughter of the fallen angel, Duke Belial aka Jonathan LaGray.
Anna goes to her father, who is in prison, to find out her story - a story he tells as love between angels, a separation, and a rejoining in human form. He tells the story of her mother, Mariantha - a Guardian Angel.
Part story of coming into oneself, part story good vs. evil, part story of free will and that of the Nephs, and part story of love of one you can not have.
I found this book to be entertaining. It was an interesting take on some beliefs and other fiction that I have read. There are times that it seems longer than necessary and that 100 pages could have been edited out, but there is a follow up book Sweet Peril that might have needed some much fill in.
