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.

My thoughts:

I love this series so much! I've come to the conclusion that one of my favorite types of characters to read within the young adult paranormal genre is angels! I feel like they're so exciting and each story can be so different! 

Jessica Shirvington's angels in the Violet Eden Chapters are a group called Grigori and they're purpose is to protect the earth and humans from the dark fallen angels.  Each member of the Grigori has an "angel maker" and depending on how powerful and what type of angel decided to be their "maker", the Grigori member has certain powers.  I've explained it really badly but if you read the books, it's all really fascinating! 

Violet, as we know from Embrace, decided to embrace her inner Grigori and now she is working with her partner Lincoln and taking out the bad angels.  But of course, we know that she is head over heels in love with Lincoln but it's strictly forbidden for them to ever be together which really sucks because he is one of my favorite guy characters! While reading Embrace, I was really torn between Lincoln and Phoenix because they both seem like really great guys! But after reading Entice, I was shocked at the level of cruelty Phoenix stooped to to be able to get what he wanted.  I really hope in the next book we see more Phoenix because I really think that he still has feelings for Violet.

I definitely recommend Embrace to anyone who hasn't read it yet and really likes angel books! I was captivated from the first few chapters and I just flew through Entice! I give Entice 4 hearts for being a very exciting adventure with twists and turns that I was not expecting!
