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…
Jessica Shirvington did an amazing job with this book, you feel for the main character, Violet so much and what she's going through. You connect with how mad she gets when she finds out that the only person that she'd ever connected with lied to her about what and who she really is. And you can't help but feel her connection with Lincoln. Throughout the book you feel how much they love one another and how protective he is of her.
I also couldn't help feeling a bit of an attraction when Phoenix entered the picture. At times I was glad he was there with Vi, but knew that something was off with him. This story is unique and brings a new and unique perspective on the word, Angels. I'm super excited for the second installment to come out in September, I'm hooked.
PS - Keep an eye out later next month as we're going to be interviewing Jessica Shirvington and she will also be guest posting on Just Us Girls, we're very excited!
