The story Sweet Evil is a story of unobtainable love, new and great friends , sadness and one teenage girl's fight to take control of her own life. Anna Whitt is a 17 teen year old girl whom is adopted a an early age and lives her life as a normal teenage girl with a few hidden secrets. She has good hearing, night vision and can see people's auras.
Anna's life begins to change when she meets hot band drummer Kaiden Row and discovers that he too has the same powers she has. Together they go on a journey across country to the place of Anna's birth to find out more information about what Anna is? Why is she different from the others of her kind ? What is her connection to Kaiden? And what little information does her incarcerated farther have for her?
These are all the questions twist and turns that arise during the heart beating ride that is Sweat Evil. Higgins paints nephilim in a different light than any other writer ever has. We always assume nephilim were good because they are the sons and daughters of fallen angels who would do anything to get back into God's good graces. But not in this book! It has been a while since I loved every character in a book and thought them all to be believable.
The only real complex I have is Patty allowing Anna to drive clear across the country with some dude that Anna and Patty herself barely knows? I was thinking come on that is not real. And yes I do know that this is a fantasy fictional book and sometimes if you look to deeply into these stories you find an abundance of things that would not happen in real life but that was completely unbelievable. There is no way a mom adopted or natural would allow their 17 year old daughter to drive across country with some shady -looking teenage boy that she has only seen for the first time.
I don't care if he has enough money to pay for fifty gold elephants to personally carry her there. That whole scene is unbelievable! Um … really I think that was my only real gripe with this story, everything else made good sense and was in good timing...so with out further ado here's my personal rating system. Whoo! * crowd cheering * For the cover art I give a 10 out of 10 stars it was a beautiful cover and it is one of the few covers that actually resembles the characters described in the book. Great job! The characters a 10 out of 10 stars, the plot a 10 out of 10, the scenery/settings a 10 out of 10. The way Higgins described her places made me feel like I was actually there and I haven't felt that in a while! And finally the overall book experience a 10 out of 10. Whenever you are sad because you've finished a book and even sadder because you realize that you do not have the sequel in your personal collection and begin to feel like you are empty inside then that was one hell of a book you've read! Will I be reading the next to come? What do you think?
