Goodreads Summary: 

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.

What I Thought:

I loved Sweet Reckoning so much!  It feels like it’s been a while since I’ve had strong feelings of love towards a book and it feels good to be excited about a series-ender!

There is so much going on, and I couldn’t ask for a better resolution to an awesome series.  I just love Anna so much, and she’s not the same girl we first met in Sweet Evil.  We is such a strong person because she has people who she can really on for help, and love and caring about people are her strengths that help her fight the Dukes.

And Anna and Kai!  I am so glad things worked out well for them!  I really was hoping that things would go in their favor. Which it did, with some surprises along the way.  I did not see that coming at all!  But at the same time, it really did fit with everything going on.

I really am going to miss a lot of the characters, who really are awesome.  Like Kope and Marna and Ginger and Blake.  And Jay and Patty!  I just have a lot of love for these characters, but one who really stands out is Patty.  She’s been so good to Anna, and she really is a big reason why Anna was the one who was able to free the Nephilim.  There were so many tears by the end of the book, with the battle and everything going on and what the dukes were up to…

Speaking of the dukes, I liked how confused they were by Anna’s ability to use the Sword Of Righteousness. It was slightly amusing, until they learned why.  Still, the dukes are pretty interesting characters, with not wanting to change wasn’t surprising.

Reviewing Sweet Reckoning while giving only minor spoilers is a lot harder than I expected!  But there are things that I don’t want to give it away since Sweet Reckoning came out so recently.

Still, Sweet Reckoning seemed to have a different feel to it than the previous books did.  On the one hand, I’m glad, because they have reason to want everything to be over and there’s hope and love and trying to keep everyone safe.  But at the same time, there wasn’t the huge battle I was expecting (because it does seem typical for this kind of story).  I mean, there was battle and everything, but it wasn’t the huge clash.  But the small battle that it was really fit.  So, basically, I’m not sure what to think about this.

Let’s Rate It: 

I LOVED Sweet Reckoning!  It’s such a good conclusion to one of my favorite series, and I loved how everything turned for almost everyone.  (There are a couple of exceptions, but it also fits them, so I can’t complain too much).  Sweet Reckoning gets 5 stars.
