Goodreads Synopsis:

Violet Eden is Grigori - part angel, part human. Her destiny is to protect humans from the vengence of exiled angels.

Knowing who to trust is key but, when Grigori reinforcements arrive, it becomes clear everyone is hiding something. Even Lincoln. The only thing Violet does know: Phoenix's hold over her is more dangerous than ever.

The race to find the one thing that could tilt the balance of power brings them all to the sacred mountains of Jordan, where Violet's power will be pushed to the extreme. And the ultimate betrayal exposed.


So I remember hearing all about EMBRACE when it first came out and I remember devouring that book, so when I got the chance to find out what would happen next I could not decline that. Just as with EMBRACE, I devoured this book in a matter of days, I can definitely say this is one of those few times that I loved the sequel so much better than the first one!

I found I liked this one better because I found the first book was more focused on Violet running away from everything, whereas this book has so much more happening and I find Violet has grown a lot in this ENTICE, I liked her character so much more. And on the topic of characters, let me talk about Lincoln... as much as I did like him in the first book I was a Phoenix fan, but after this book (which does not have a lot of Phoenix in it) I am all Team Lincoln!! He was so adorable and I really loved learning more about him and really delving deeper into his emotions. There were also a great bunch of new characters that are introduced in this book who were a lot of fun and helped out Violet's storyline a bit.

Just like EMBRACE the reader is brought into a suspense filled book right from the beginning. Shrivington really knows how to keep her reader guessing throughout everything, wondering what will happen. Though I did see one or two things coming there was still a lot of great surprises. I really love all the drama that comes out of everything that happened in the first book, like Phoenix saving Violet and Onyx now being a human (which really brought some great comedy to this book)

I did not want to finish the book just because I was so engrossed in the story I was sad for it to end, I also knew that the ending was going to leave a huge cliffhanger... and what a cliffhanger it was, I loved everything that happened and how the ending was brought out slowly until you just get hit with everything. I can not wait for the next book in this series and I feel like I need it NOW. This is a great series to get into, this is not like other angel books out there, Shirvington really delves into the mythology of things and explains everything well for her readers.
