Saturday Pages: Sweet Reckoning by Wendy Higgins!!!

As the final entry of this week's Saturday Pages I have a long and impatiently awaited final book for one my recent favourite series, and one that made me give a chance to angel books again!

It isn't part of any of my challenges and as such it was one of my very "ME" reads, so much that I started reading it at midnight (as soon as it downloaded into my Kindle) and finished it at 5 am!

Sweet Reckoning (The Sweet Trilogy, #3)Sweet Reckoning by Wendy Higgins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sweet Reckoning was one of my most highly awaited books of the year, and after Sweet Evil and Sweet Peril being so amazing, and Sweet Peril totally avoiding the middle book syndrome, Sweet Reckoning had some serious shoes to fill, but thankfully it did so without disappointing me at any point!

As hard as it will be, because I feel like I want to talk about all the spoilers and awesome and swoony and shocking things, I will keep this review spoiler free, but of course expect spoilers for both Sweet Evil and Sweet Peril.

After the evilness that was the final chapters of Sweet Evil, I loved how Sweet Reckoning started with Anna feeling like she had to be strong and she had the will and the motivation to fight. She's part angel and as sweet as they come, but she's strong and determined to fight for what's right! Anna has to be one of my favourite main characters ever. She has so much growth all through the trilogy, but she never loses herself, her changes have always been consequent with who she is. She's grown to accept herself as a Nephilim, with the good and the bad, she's learnt her limits and how to fight, how to hold her own against the Dukes and their minions...

And if we're talking about character growth, I think the one that had the most character growth and change is our dear Kaidan. He started the series as a sexy bad boy that doesn't feel like he deserves to fight for something better, and we end up with an amazing Kaidan, that's still sexy and naughty but it's ready to fight for himself, for the other Neph and most of all, for Anna.

I was quite dreading what might come in this book, and to an extent I was right, there was plenty of heartbreak in this book, but there was also a lot of happiness and moments of happy tears. There were also plenty of swoony and sexy moments but they never seemed out of place in the overall arch of the story. Every moment for Kai and Anna was one more reason to fight.

I'm not sure how to talk about the plot for this one without accidentally spoiling something, so I'll just say that there is quite a lot of action, with Anna and the rest being part and coming together and having to part yet again. Preparing and plotting and eventually having to work in less than ideal conditions. The showdown was resolved in a way I wasn't exactly expecting and it had heartbreak that I would have never thought would happen.

What absolutely cinched the 5 stars for this book for me, and what made me weep and ugly cry was the epilogue. After everything, this was just amazing and so fitting... *sigh* Sweet Reckoning had plenty of smiles, tears and swoons and it's the perfect ending for this fantastic trilogy. Read it. NOW.
