Goodreads Synopsis:


Violet Eden thought she was getting things under control. Then all hell breaks loose--literally. In the war between angels and exiles, she's about to face the biggest baddie of all time. Except she's not nearly ready.

The dark exile Phoenix is still messing with her head--not to mention her heart. And her undeniable attraction to Lincoln has gotten downright dangerous. When Hell unleashes its worst, Violet must embrace every facet of her angel self to save the people she cares about and the world as she knows it. But death is not the worst thing she will face...


This series is one of my favourites (I probably say that in all my reviews, because it is so true). I honestly don't know how to write reviews for these books without saying the same thing, about how amazing Jessica Shrivington has done with this story. So much comes to head with this book, and it made me crazy watching as things begin to unravel.

After the ending of Emblaze, everyone is on high alert with Lilith being released from the underworld. What can I say about this book, that probably hasn't already been said about this series. I love how Violet has grown over the course of the books and really come to tackle just about everything that is thrown at her, and at the end of the last book the biggest thing was thrown at her. Her mother has now come back... This on top of everything else that Violet must deal with would really kill anyone else, but despite all the issues I think Violet handles things well.

The one thing that slightly gets on my nerves is the back and forth between Violet and Lincoln. I just wanted them to make a decision regarding their position as soul mates, and it kills me to see them loving each other and yet also staying away, it just always seems like they can't make up their mind. I think this book was especially difficult for the relationship of these two.

Violet must come to terms with how her choices have affected her and those she loves, and now she has to make the biggest decision of her life to help save everyone around her. This book was the most difficult for me to get through of this series because of all the emotions. I really felt what Violet was going through and how hard any decision she made would be because of the consequences. The last few chapters really took me by surprise, realizing how some of these characters evolved and everything that had to happen for Violet to do what she needed to.

I can say I am very happy that there is another book coming out after this one, because the ending was disappointing for me and actually made me want to throw the book across the room. After everything that happens, the decisions that Violet makes (as much as I can understand) really made me emotional. Violet learns so much about herself in this book that things are difficult for her. I'm excited to see how Jessica Shrivington adds to this series, I'm not ready to say good-bye to any of these characters, they are too real for me now.

  1. Okay soooo I completely agree with you that this series is great and that Violet really does grow up SO much throughout the books. I'm glad that continues!

    But the back and forth between Violet and Lincoln drives me a bit crazy. I need to be in the right mood to read these books, for that reason alone. And now I'm worried with your little hints about the ending and how their relationship continues in Endless!

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
