Sunday, September 9, 2012
Violet Eden is Grigori - part angel, part human. Her destiny is to protect humans from the vengence of exiled angels.
Knowing who to trust is key but, when Grigori reinforcements arrive, it becomes clear everyone is hiding something. Even Lincoln. The only thing Violet does know: Phoenix's hold over her is more dangerous than ever.
The race to find the one thing that could tilt the balance of power brings them all to the sacred mountains of Jordan, where Violet's power will be pushed to the extreme. And the ultimate betrayal exposed.
Enticed is the second compelling book in The Violet Eden Chapters.

Goodreads Summary

Those who have not read Embrace should look into reading that one first.  The second book in the series, Entice, jumps right into the plot.  Violet must learn more about the Grigori and she just might delve into a relationship with Lincoln.  As Violet begins to figure out the difference between light and dark angels and even the difference between one light angel and another, she begins to realize that there are not many people she can trust other than herself.  Violet is on her own in the Grigori mystery and people seem to be hiding things from her.

Lincoln is as easy to fall in love with as he was in the first book.  His charismatic, loving, and "enticing" character will likely keep the reader reading even if he/she doesn't like the rest of the plot.  The romance between Lincoln and Violet is more of the build-up variety, it's easy to get sucked in from the first page.  Their characters feel so real together, their relationship enviable.  The other characters are just as fun.  The reader should be able to tell the Jessica Shirvington invested a lot of time on her secondary characters.  The secondary characters are far from bland, they feel as alive as Lincoln and Violet.  With the plot's action, mystery, romance, and intrigue and the larger-than-life characters, this book is recommended to young adult/teen readers.
