It’s time.

Evil is running rampant and sweet Anna Whitt is its target. Nobody knows when or how the Dukes will strike, but Anna and her Nephilim allies will do anything necessary to rid the earth of the demons and their oppressive ways.

The stakes are higher than ever, and Anna is determined that the love she feels will be her strength, not a liability. But trying to protect the ones she loves while running for her life and battling demonic forces proves to be perilous—especially as faces are changing and trust is fleeting. When the Duke of Lust sends Anna’s great love, Kaidan Rowe, to work against her, Anna must decide how much she’s prepared to risk.

In the most sensual and fast-paced instalment yet, Sweet Reckoning brings all the beloved Neph together one last time to fight for their freedom.


For a conclusion to a paranormal trilogy, this was a bit of a disappointment to me, sadly.

This book is paranormal, yet it felt more contemporary, which for some may be appealing, but for those who are expecting a riveting action packed ending to a angels/demons trilogy, it is kind-of disappointing.

Most of the book focused on the love aspect extremely heavily, and left very little room for the whole ‘world’ aspect of the novel to be dealt with. Although I did enjoy many of the love type parts, I found myself thinking ‘when is this going to stop and actually get into the book’, it just got old after a while when nothing was really happening.

The ending was super quick and felt like the whole three book issue was solved in literally 2 pages, making it rather anticlimactic. Honestly, I was looking forward to this huge battle and all I got was 10 pages tops, of talking and BOOM everything was solved…

The epilogue was super super sweet though, and I really did enjoy that! Oh Kaidan.

All in all, I did enjoy this series however I feel it got progressively worse with each book, and was a let down in the end. This is not to say that I didn’t enjoy the series though, because I definitely did! Just less dragging was needed in my opinion, too many pages, too little action.

Yeah that’s it,

Kate 🙂
