Violet Eden is Grigori - part angel, part human. Her destiny is to protect humans from the vengeance 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.
Being Enticed sure sounds like fun but dangerous at the same time. Healing by making out with someone to transfer your power sounds like a fun way to heal.
The story was better but I also felt that Violet thought way too much about everything she did. It annoyed me to no end that she would even question Lincoln’s feelings for her when it was rather obvious in the beginning. I can’t help but giggle when Violet describes how Lincoln fights. In a way I get how in love she is, yet I can’t help but find humor in it because it’s so darn cheesy. I do love how confident she is in his abilities and I truly enjoy Lincoln and all of his sweet and kind remarks. Oh Phoenix sure knows how to stir the kettle. I wish we could find out more about his past. The bad-boy image is just so attractive don’t you think?
The twists and turns this novel had to offer far succeeded the first book and I rather enjoyed this one more. The plot does develop but not as fast as I would have liked. I thought the middle could have been shortened and have the characters doing something other than trying to find the Scriptures. Violet was indeed distracted by him but I’m guessing Phoenix planned it that way.
The villain in the end didn’t end surprising me because I was gunning it was that person after all. I felt rather smug that it was said person. Yet I also love it when an author spins another character a different way and it also takes me by surprise.
I can’t wait until the next book in this series. I hope it’s just as good as this one.
