Embrace your fate.
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 installment yet, Sweet Reckoning brings all the beloved Neph together one last time to fight for their freedom.

I read and review Young Adult lit!
The only reason I didn’t return Sweet Reckoning was so I could at least have the satisfaction of giving it a one-star review.
After supporting the trilogy from the beginning I am so utterly appalled by this anti-climactic final instalment I urge everyone to not waste their time or money.
Turns out ridding the world of demons is so simple that Anna didn’t even break a sweat!
I estimate the yawn-worthy climax took only 40min of the 10hr+ run time
So what’s Sweet Reckoning actually about?
The author is clearly a Stephanie Meyer type – so religiously repressed about sex she had to write three books establishing her protagonists’ undying love and even marry her off just so she could write sex scenes without feeling guilty.
Higgins actually has an angel come down for a post-coital high-five to make it clear this union was totally cool with god.
Yes, the main action of Sweet Reckoning is, literally, Anna finally getting some action.
How many times?
How many ways?
How many places?
Don’t worry - you’ll get all the details you can stomach!
Sure Anna is supposed to be ridding the world of pure demons but there’s sex to be had so she skims the bible on the way to the final show-down and hopes for the best!
There is no planning, plotting or preparation.
No training, scheming or strategizing.
We’ve spent three books leading up to a complete and total non-event!!
Anyone who has read the first two entries would be better off reading some free fanfiction then paying for this mess.
Addicting series, a page turner throughout each book. A perfect mix of supernatural, suspense and little romance.
One of my favorites
Everything! Wrapped up everything nicely * sigh *
Normally I like this narrator a lot, and most of her performance is amazing. But in this book, she gasps after each sentence. It is extremely irritating and distracting.
Many moments in this book moved me. Hard to pick just one...but the last scene was the most endearing.
I really like this series. I didn't notice it so much in the other two books, but I feel like the narrator needs some oxygen. What's up with her deep breaths after each sentence?
A very satisfying ending to this trilogy. Very well done. So refreshing when the author doesn't leave you feeling like crap after the series ends.
This book starts where the last book ended--with Anna Whitt and Kaiden Rowe, working under Balil's instructions to recruit nephilim allies against the Dukes.
The Dukes are suspicious of Anna and her father, so Anna and Kai have to be very careful as the epic confrontation between the Dukes and her offspring Nephilim draws close.
The events leading up to the confrontation were more angsty than the actual event. Anna made me proud. She was strong, in the midst of her fears and she was finally a leader in this one. She took intiative and made really good decision.
I loved Jay and his new role, I was happy that Capone go this HEA and I just enjoyed this series immensely. Way to end this one on a great note

Already am right now :)
Poison Princess and Endless Knight by Kresley Cole. I can't really explain why other than the great writing. I can't quite compare. Maybe it's because the Kresley Cole Arcana Chronicles deal with Tarot Cards and teens who represent the major Arcana trump cards and the nef in the Sweet trilogy represent demons. Also both "kids" in both series have supernatural power.
Erin does a great job with the accents and voices. She sounds very natural. I really like her as a narrator.
A few but I'm not going to spoil it for people who haven't read it yet!
"Good story - not so sure about the reader..."
The final chapter in the Sweet triology was good - but not great.
Earlier in the year the end of the Divergent triology left me raging with anger, as it was just THAT BAD. A few weeks ago the ending of the Partials triology left me smiling and happily content. It pretty much tied up all loose ends and had a great finale too.
The end of the Sweet trilogy was, well, meh!. I'd been hoping for so much, but most of the book just seemed to be about sex, sex, sex - and wanting to have sex, sex, sex.
Don't get me wrong, the very last chapter ALMOST had me in tears, but I'd loved these characters sooo much over the years that ANY sentimental stuff would have set me blubbing.
To put it in a nutshell: Too much sex, too little time spent with/on the demons. From book one I had expected an epic WAR between heaven and hell - huge, intense, all-encompassing.
Sweet Reckoning didn't have a war. It didn't even have a Harry Potter meets Voldemort. It just had a party in a nightclub with a few naughty clubbers....
Good, but not great.
ALSO: The reader on this audio book was pretty much awful. She sounded so choked up with emotion at some points that I thought she was having an asthma attack. There was literally a gargle from her during one dramatic scene - surely that could have been edited out?
Kai - great hero/anti-hero.

Can I have my money back?
