After Reading: Embrace
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…
Alright, I'll admit it, the absolute best part about this book? Totally Lincoln. I kind of want to just move into his house and be all "hey, man, you can train me!" Because I think that would be cool. So, yeah, this was a fun read, and I am probably going to have to go purchase ENTICE this afternoon so I can keep reading. I'm a major sucker for angel books (gee, I wonder why?) and I decidedly liked the spin on this one. Looking forward to seeing more of the characters in the next couple of books and getting to know the world a little better!
Have you read Embrace? What did you think?
