Review Time! This is the second book in the Violet Eden Chapters written by Jessica Shirvington who is an Australian Author! The first book is Embrace ( Review Here ) I'm having Jessica on the blog tomorrow for an interview AND we're giving away 10 sets of both Enticed and Embrace! TEN WINNERS! Thanks to Hachette for the review copy!
(Goodreads) Violet Eden is Grigori - part angel, part human. Her destiny is to protect humans from the vengeance 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.
The Short Story? - The plot keeps getting better and better! Picking up from where the story finished in Embrace, Enticed is a fantastic sequel to an exciting new series about our favourite mythical creatures! Angels ( and angel/human hybrids - Grigori!) !!! Action-packed, great characters and a refreshing new take on Angel Mythology. Get ready for Violet Eden, she's the next big thing!
The Long Story ? - Quite frankly, I went thought this complete faze where I was obsessed with YA paranormal romance, I still adore PNR, it my genre of choice but I'm also reaching out to other genre now! The thing about The Violet Eden Chapters is that even though it's a PNR, it's quite normal. Violet has daddy issues, she still attends school, she's into art, she still takes exams and goes shopping even among all the chaos! I love how Jessica has combines essence of "human" even among all the action! Which brings me to my next point...
The action! I liked Embrace but I loved this one! Fast-paced, action packed and educational. Lots of research must have gone into this novel, mostly religious history but it's all so interesting! Jessica has weaved history with fiction, creating a whole new take on on "this" particular historical event! She's expanded on what was already fiction about "religion" and taken it to a whole new level. Apparently Lilith wasn't just the first vampire but the mother of the first angel/human hybrid! Twist and turns and a killer- ending! I don't think I can wait for the next one!
Jessica has also further developed the characters during Enticed. We see Violet growing up and becoming more mature. We see her question her actions and take care of the people she loves most. Lots of emotion developed with Lincoln ( main love interest ) as well. Jessica has also introduced new characters!!! Readers are introduced to a trio of Grigori from New York ( cute boys) and their mentors, the characters are the highlight of the novel for me!They make everything, so much more interesting!
I strongly encourage all you Aussie readers to pick up the Violet Eden Chapters and for all you international readers to keep an eye out for it! A heated love-triangle, action-packed storyline and a heroine you're sure to like, The Violet Eden Chapters are amazing! Looking for something unique? Pick Violet Eden!
Rating - 5/5
