Review – Emblaze by Jessica Shirvington
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.
My Thoughts: First up I have to say that I really love this series! Forbidden love, angst, betrayal and action – what’s not to love? Jessica Shirvington has not disappointed fans with her third book in the Violet Eden Chapters.
Once again the relationship between Violet and Lincoln takes us on an emotional rollercoaster and while reading my heart ached for them both. I have always been on Team Lincoln, but I couldn’t help feeling a little sorry for Phoenix at times.
Violet’s Father has never really been a parent to her but it was good to see him step up and start to take his roll seriously in Emblaze and I’m expecting that he will play a larger part in the next book Endless. Anyone who has read the book will know why :)
Many of the characters we were introduced to in Enticed are back in Emblaze and it was nice to see how the relationships between them and Violet had developed.
If you are a fan of the Violet Eden Chapters you will not be disappointed with Emblaze :)
