Emblaze (The Violet Eden Chapters #3) by Jessica Shirvington

Add to Goodreads

Once again Violet Eden faces an impossible choice ... and the consequences are unimaginable.

Violet has come to terms with the fact that being part angel, part human, means her life will never be as it was.

Now Violet has something Phoenix - the exiled angel who betrayed her - will do anything for, and she has no intention of letting it fall into his hands. The only problem is that he has something she needs too.

Not afraid to raise the stakes, Phoenix seemingly holds all the power, always one step ahead. And when he puts the final pieces of the prophecy together, it doesn't take him long to realise exactly who he needs in order to open the gates of Hell.

With the help of surprising new allies, ancient prophecies are deciphered, a destination set and, after a shattering confrontation with her father, Violet leaves for the islands of Greece without knowing if she will have a home to return to...

PurchaseBook Depository


This is easily the best instalment so far.  Picking up shortly after where book 2, Entice, left off, I was right in this story from start to finish.  

The Grigori have the scripture Phoenix wants to raise Lilith,  the Academy is intrigued about Violet being the only angel of the Sole, which may not be a good thing, Violet and Lincoln know they are soul mates but after seeing Rudyard and Nyla, know they can't be together and Violet's dad has finally taken an interest in Violet's life at the worst possible moment.

These are just some of the threads that Jessica Shirvington juggles effortlessly in a novel that packs action from start to finish, a great storyline and all the romance & angst we have come to expect from Violet and Lincoln and Violet's connection with Phoenix. 

If you enjoyed Embrace and Entice, then I suggest you don't miss this next instalment.  If you have not yet read this series and you are a fan or action, romance and kick ass angels, then put this series next on your reading list.

A very definite 5 stars for Emblaze!
