Publisher's Summary

Embrace your fate.

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

I love the story it was a very good book saga

I love how strong their friendships have become in this one everybody needs a good group of friends but I did not like how the narrator was so breathless and everything she sound like she needed to catch her breath all the time but other than that what a good story

great ending to a great series

Would you listen to Sweet Reckoning again? Why?

maybe, the narrator was incredibly annoying gasping after EVERY sentence.

How could the performance have been better?

she could've spoken normally like in the first two books

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

really sweet ending

Any additional comments?

This narrator was amazing for the first two books but in this one she gasps after every single sentence. It was very distracting.

Narration irritating, great story

Where does Sweet Reckoning rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of my favorites

What did you like best about this story?

Everything! Wrapped up everything nicely * sigh *

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

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.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Many moments in this book moved me. Hard to pick just one...but the last scene was the most endearing.

Love the story

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?

Unforgivably Pointless Waste of Time

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?

Sex.

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.

Unforgivable.

I liked this book best out of the whole series.

I didn't know what to think of this series and every book just got better and better. The storyline pulled me in the more I read it. By the end I couldn't put it down!

Loved this series! Loved the ending!! An original story of dark versus light. I love that the demon forces were laid out in black and white.

Epic ending to an awesome series.

Oh the bitter-sweetness of the last book in a series, and the things that happen in Sweet Reckoning make you smile, swoon, and have several "Oh my Gawd" moments. Sweet Reckoning was definitely my favorite book out of the series. I loved where Wendy Higgins took the romance and relationship between Kaidan and Anna - it was downright hot. Didn't know my girl had it in her, but she does, and she ends up being a kick-butt heroine also. Kaidan had me totally swooning over him in this novel. I totally loved the person he became in this book. He wound up being quite the hero. All of the other secondary characters played big roles as well - Ginger and Marna - the twins, and their bittersweet finale. Then there is Jay, bless his heart, Patty, and of course my favorite of all, Blake. I still so wish Blake had his own book - I just loved him.

That said, the ending is epic and I thought Wendy Higgins concluded the series very well. She even provided an epilogue, which is something I love, and I totally loved this epilogue.

My Opinion: Fantastic series that young adult and adult fans of paranormal romance will love. Definitely buy it, you won't be disappointed.

Good story - not so sure about the reader...

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

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?

Who was your favorite character and why?

Kai - great hero/anti-hero.

What didn’t you like about Erin Mallon’s performance?

The reader on this audio book was pretty 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?

If this book were a film would you go see it?

No

Any additional comments?

Can I have my money back?

Baby Girl

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I recommend the series in general Anna is strong yet a goodie goodie i know some people can't stand that and yet the love interest she is paired with is the total opposite yet brings out a "different side" to her . The Nephilim in the series are raised differently based on their sin so naturally they are going to hate their parents for treating them badly

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sweet Reckoning?

Plane wedding and honey moon?

Which scene did you most enjoy?

“Halfway through the meal, while we were all laughing and telling stories, I made the mistake of placing my hand on Kaidan's upper thigh without thinking.

He let out a groan loud enough to silence the room. I slipped my hand back into my own lap, and Kaidan cleared his throat.

"Wow," he said. "The corn pudding is fantastic."

I snorted, which started a round of snickers. Patti smiled at Kaidan like he was a precious boy.

"Isn't it good? Anna found the recipe a few years ago. She's a great cook."

"Mm-hm." Kaidan gave a tight-lipped smile. "That she is.”
