Entice (The Violet Eden Chapters #2)

Buy it: Amazon | KindleBook Depository
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.

Action and love. That's what this book is all about. So many mysteries surround the Grigori, and we learn a lot more about them. At the same time, we learn along with Violet that she can only trust herself. Everyone is keeping secrets; some have murderous intentions lying beneath friendly exteriors.

What makes it harder to discern the traitor in their ranks is the slew of new and entertaining characters that are introduced in this book. They are all fun and lovable in their own ways. It was hard to see where the betrayal would come from. There are so many things taking place in this book and so little time to form speculations before we're swept into another plot. It is not a light read at all.

The characters can be vague. The writing style is different from what I'm used to reading. It feels as though I'm watching everything from the air with all the characters wrapped in their little bubbles. It's new and interesting, kind of like a sci-fi/fantasy film that has you jumping from scene to breathtaking scene. The whole story has this air of mystery wrapped around it, and when the love scenes come in, they swept me off my feet. It's so beautiful, intense, and filled with passion that it keeps you reading, if only for that (and the fight scenes).

I recommend this book for paranormal lovers looking for another kind of read and definitely for fans of Embrace. If you haven't already read book one, however, make sure you do that before reading Entice, as the book jumps right into the plot!
