Embrace the Forbidden

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 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?


I read a quote in this book that simply resonated with me and, I felt described the deeper meaning of every other word that was written on these pages:

” The mind is its own place, and in itself

can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven”

I loved this book, and the reason it’s only getting 4 stars is because I strongly believe the other two novels in this trilogy will be even better.

The first half of the text reads much like a contemporary, due to the road trip aspect (which I loved so much). I found majority of the story to be quite realistic, despite the fact that it’s paranormal based.

The characters were very enjoyable to read about, which I find other paranormal books can sometimes lack in, unfortunately. I’m not usually one to fall so easily for the ‘bad boy’, but my gosh did I love Kaidan Rowe! *swoon*

I was really impressed with the originality of the story, and the various things Wendy Higgins brought to this novel, whether that be the complexity behind the world/culture or simply the seven deadly sins take.

I cannot wait to see what the rest of this trilogy has to offer, and what the heck is going to happen between Kaidan and Anna!

I recommended to:

All lovers of paranormal. Those who enjoyed Hush Hush, Paranormalcy, and Cassandra Clare, I feel would most likely enjoy this one too!

Yeah that’s it,

Kate 🙂
