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.
Enticed is the second compelling book in The Violet Eden Chapters.
I’ve read Embrace not long ago, so the book was still pretty fresh in my memory when I started this one (always a plus, because this takes out the confusing I could have had. No, I started Entice knowing what had happen in book one, and really excited to find out what happen next. I have to say I was really happy with what we got in this sequel. I still have to say that it wasn’t better than book one (the middle book rarely is), but it was still pretty solid. We got to learn a lot more about the back-story of the Grigori, their history, and their mythology. That was something that I was really happy to get, because I had a couple of questions from book one that needed answers, and I got a good part of those. Still, there’s still some mystery, since there’s a third book coming.
I really like Violet more and more in this book. I feel like she is becoming more solid as a character, and I love seeing her interact with different characters than Lincoln (even though I ADORE him) and Steph. The three new Grigori (or maybe I could say the youngest ones) were just a great addition, especially Spence, who cracked me up. I found it really interesting to see more side of those part-angel beings. I just understood more about them because of that.
If there’s one thing that didn’t change, it’s how amazing Jessica Shirvington’s writing is. It was simply addicting, and beautiful. It was one of those books you just don’t want to put down once you start. I’m already sad to have to wait for the next one. Something nicely different from all those angel-themed books I’ve read in YA lately. Definitely one of my favorite series lately. It’s full of twits and mystery. How could I not fall for it?
