Review: Embrace (The Violet Eden Chapters #1)

Embrace (The Violet Eden Chapters #1) by Jessica Shirvington

Publisher: Hachette Autralia, 2010
382 pages, paperback
Source: Purchased through Dymocks
Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal, Fantasy, Romance, Supernatural

Synopsis (from Goodreads):
It starts with a whisper: “It’s time for you to know who you are…”

Violet Eden dreads her seventeenth birthday. After all, it’s hard to get too excited about the day that marks the anniversary of your mother’s death. As if that wasn't enough, disturbing dreams haunt her sleep and leave her with very real injuries. There’s a dark tattoo weaving its way up her arms that wasn't there before.

Violet is determined to get some answers, but nothing could have prepared her for the truth. The guy she thought she could fall in love with has been keeping his identity a secret: he’s only half-human—oh, and same goes for her.

A centuries-old battle between fallen angels and the protectors of humanity has chosen its new warrior. It’s a fight Violet doesn't want, but she lives her life by two rules: don't run and don't quit. When angels seek vengeance and humans are the warriors, you could do a lot worse than betting on Violet Eden…

My Reivew:
Embrace is about Violet Eden, her mum died the day she was born and on her 17th birthday weird things start happening. She is having weird dreams and she gets cuts from these dreams and these markings start to appear on her wrists. she also gets a letter from her mum that her father has been saving for this occasion, it talks a lot about heap of things and she finds out this majorly huge secret that the one person in her life that was her anchor and his name is Lincoln.

When she finds out this secret that he knew and she doesn't know who she can trust anymore and she also meets new people and also meets this new guy Phenix. I really loved this book I've seen a lot of mixed reviews about it, but I wasn't going to let those reviews get to me. This book had awesome quotes, awesome moments sad, angry and happy.

I loved how different this book is to other storylines that feature angels, I loved all the characters, Im extremely a big sucker for love triangles the fact that it had that it was entertaining as hell for me, I thought it was just dark and a lot of things were happening left, right and centre it was a slow book but it kept going and going and going and was great.

My Rating:
