Sweet Evil (The Sweet Trilogy #1)
by Wendy Higgins
16-year-old Anna can see emotions. Each emotion that she can feel and see has a distinct color. Anna goes with a friend to a concert and first sees Kaidan Rowe, who is the drummer in the band. Kaidan doesn't have an aura, he only has a “concentrated starburst of bright red at his sternum.” What I found refreshing about Anna is that she is poor but she isn't snotty about it. I hate reading about rich, pampered girls with their Prada and Gucci. Things I don't have now and definitely never had growing up. Also, I hate reading about snotty, bratty girls too. She is an honest to goodness good girl, which means she is probably being set up for a fall from grace. Anna has supernatural abilities. Her senses are stronger than normal, she never gets sick and her body heals injuries faster than humanly possible.
Nephilim are supposed to tempt humans and cause them to fall. They are all half-demon, children of humans and demons or fallen angels. Except Anna is a child of a demon and a pure angel, an angel of light. Each Nephilim have their own vices that they use to tempt humans: wrath, adultery, substance abuse, lies, gluttony, greed, envy, lust, pride, theft, hatred and murder. Anna is substance abuse and Kaidan pronounced (Ky-den) is lust.
This book is so good. It is full of supernatural conflict, excitement, lust, love and sweet, sweet evil. 5 stars.
