Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In this sequel to Embrace (2012), 17-year-old half-human, half-angel Violet Eden is continuing her Grigori training in an effort to protect humankind from vengeful exiled angels—and still dealing with romantic feelings for fellow Grigori Lincoln. Things heat up when Violet’s exiled adversary and former lover, Phoenix, returns and long-missing Grigori and Exile scriptures are discovered. Violet remains an engaging, contemporary protagonist whose absorbing narrative interweaves intricate mythology, action-suspense, and romantic complexities. Vibrant returning and new characters—including Violet’s pal Steph, Grigori-in-training Spencer, and punk goth Zoe—further enliven the narrative, and the tantalizing ending will leave series readers anticipating the follow-up. Grades 10-12. --Shelle Rosenfeld

Review

"Strong, compelling and wonderfully flawed, Violet is the kind of heroine that will keep readers enthralled and rooting for her until the final page is turned . . .This is one emotional thrill ride, filled with passion and suspense, ending with a cliffhanger that will leave readers panting for the next book." - Kirkus Reviews

" Violet remains an engaging, contemporary protagonist whose absorbing narrative interweaves intricate mythology, action suspense, and romantic complexities. Vibrant returning and new characters-including Violet's pal Steph, Grigori-in-training Spencer, and punk goth Zoe-further enliven the narrative, and the tantalizing ending will leave series readers anticipating the follow-up." - Booklist

"If you're into The Vampire Diaries, you'll love this book." - Seventeen.com Book Club

"Fans (like me!) of kick-ass-warrior-chick books like Vampire Academy will embrace this series for the adrenaline-rush/heart-pumping romance combo it provides." - Justine Spark Book Club

"Amazing history, hot romance, twisted suspense and even a character named Phoenix! All packed into a complicated world that leaves Violet unsure who to trust. Unputdownable." - Justine Spark Book Club

"Could I love this series more? Fast paced action, a strong warrior heroine, a forbidden romance. The first book is super romantic, and this one is action packed." - Justine Spark Book Club

Those who have not read Embrace should look into reading that one first. The second book in the series, Entice, jumps right into the plot. Violet must learn more about the Grigori and she just might delve into a relationship with Lincoln. As Violet begins to figure out the difference between light and dark angels and even the difference between one light angel and another, she begins to realize that there are not many people she can trust other than herself. Violet is on her own in the Grigori mystery and people seem to be hiding things from her.

Lincoln is as easy to fall in love with as he was in the first book. His charismatic, loving, and "enticing" character will likely keep the reader reading even if he/she doesn't like the rest of the plot. The romance between Lincoln and Violet is more of the build-up variety, it's easy to get sucked in from the first page. Their characters feel so real together, their relationship enviable. The other characters are just as fun. The reader should be able to tell the Jessica Shirvington invested a lot of time on her secondary characters. The secondary characters are far from bland, they feel as alive as Lincoln and Violet. With the plot's action, mystery, romance, and intrigue and the larger-than-life characters, this book is recommended to young adult/teen readers.

Format: Hardcover
'Entice' is the second book in a young adult paranormal series that focuses on our heroine, Violet Eden, as she continues to come to grips with her new identity as a Grigori - part angel and part human. On top of this, she has to focus on the return of Phoenix (and what that may mean for her), the arrival of Grigori from New York, and her ever growing feelings for Lincoln. When word that Phoenix is looking for the Scripture spreads, Violet and her fellow Grigori must rush to get there first. Will they get there in time to stop Phoenix and who among them is betraying them?

After reading and loving the first book in the series, I had high hopes for this book. I'm glad to say that I definitely wasn't disappointed. The story picks up where the first left off with ease, and I was right back in the story before I knew it. The book is very well written and was fast-paced - which made me unable to put it down. The characters are multi-layered and very likeable, and we are able too see a lot of character growth in the second book. The amount of detail put into the backstory and the intricate world of the angels and Grigori that the author created is incredible. I absolutely loved all the varied aspects of it - the hierarchy of angels, the different Grigori powers, all the detailed history - I think that this is a huge strength for the series and it had me completely enthralled. The romance in the novel between Violet and Lincoln is perfect. They have a complicated relationship, but the love they feel is undeniable and pulls at your heart. I can't say enough about this book or the series to relate how much I enjoyed it. It's a mysterious and enchanting world that I can't get enough of - and now I will be desperately waiting for the next book (even though it feels like forever until it will be released). Very highly recommended!

Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

I'm addicted to this series and I'm angry at the Australians. Well, not angry. Jealous. They already have the third book (it doesn't come out in the US until March) and fourth book (I don't even know when this comes out in the US). I'm not allowing myself to look at the reviews for either of these books - it'll be too cruel.

Anyway, on to the review.

One of my issues with this book is the lack of Phoenix. I know he's the "bad guy," but I love him and I want more of him. (He didn't show up in the novel until page 122 and disappeared until 306, with sporadic appearances from then until the end.) When we first see Phoenix he reveals a very interesting connection between Violet and himself - and I LOVE it. I love this plot element that Shirvington throws into the storyline. So perfect.

Also, you can tell he still has feelings for Violet - and I think she still has feelings for him as well. Violet mentions there are times when she catches his eyes and can see pain/worry/love, etc in his eyes. I mean, if she doesn't want him, I'll take him.

Maybe one of the reasons I'm Team Phoenix is because I can't really see Violet's attraction to Lincoln. I feel ike we don't really see him enough to get it. He was present in the first handful of chapters in Embrace - and we've known Violet liked him before then, with her feelings returned - but then he was pretty much gone until the end of that book. (Ha, I just realized it's like Phoenix and Lincoln switched number of appearances for this book.) We know Lincoln and Violet had this "forbidden love," but I don't see it. The love aspect. Why is she so hung up on him? What makes him such a great guy? I don't get it.
