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…
First off, I have read a lot of awesome reviews on Embrace! I went and checked out all of the giveaways and blog tour stops for Embrace also! I was lucky enough to win a copy from a giveaway, and I was so excited!!! I couldn't wait for it to arrive so I checked it out of my School Library, and read it in 3 days!
Embrace is about a girl named Violet Eden who went suffered through a really bad situation in her life and moved away with her Dad to a new school. When Violet was born her Mother died shortly after giving birth to her. Violet has two best friends which are Steph and Lincoln, but Violet soon finds out that not everything and everyone is as it seems.
Violet has always had feelings for Lincoln, but has never had the guts to tell him because she thought he wouldn't feel the same way about her. Well, she was wrong! There is way more to the story than that. On her 17th birthday, Violet's Dad gave her a box that was from her Mother. He told her that her Mother told him to give it to her on her 17th birthday. After this night Violet and Lincoln's relationship will be changed forever. There are secrets that Lincoln has been hiding from Violet and he kept holding off on telling her. When she shows up to his house one day she over hears him talking to someone about the secret he's been hiding from her and she finds out everything! While angry with Lincoln, Violet seeks comfort in Pheonix a guy whom she met on her 17th birthday.
In this story you will be constantly wondering what is going to happen next! It is so so so GOOD! I stayed up literally all night one night reading this book. The ending will leave you breathless and addicted. I couldn't get to the sneak peak of Enticed fast enough, and it still left me WANTING more. Violet will go through a big journey of finding out who she really is and who the people in her life really are. I really enjoyed reading this book, and anxiously awaiting Enticed!
Okay, so now for my rant! I wanted to punch Pheonix in the face towards the end, and I felt so so bad for Lincoln! Now don't get me wrong a part of me still likes him and I can't wait to find more about his character's history in the next book! I am team Lincoln all the way :) Steph was an amazing best friend and at first I thought she was shallow, but as the story progressed that changed. The characters make you feel like you actually know them. Jessica did an awesome job of making me care, and feel involved in this story.
If you haven't read this book yet, you definitely should. It is an AMAZING debut, it doesn't even seem like a debut to be quite honest. Jessica Shirvington is a talented and amazing Author.
