Embrace Review

 Rating: ♥♥♥♥

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… 


When I seen this book at walmart, I might have sorta kinda squealed just a little..I was SO excited, I'd wanted to read it so bad, and I didn't think I would be able to find it so easily. I had heard so many good things about Embrace. I love angel stories, and this isn't just another angel novel. It may even be better than Unearthly--anyone who has read Unearthly by Cynthia Hand knows how amazing it is!

As in most novels, the girl has 2 guys she has to basically choose between, but this is one of the hottest love triangles in Angel history! You have Lincoln, Violet's angel partner, and then Pheonix, an exiled angel..who could be either from light OR dark... ;)

I think I will always like Lincoln, but there's just something about the bad boys that always draws me in. Pheonix seems to be bad, but has a soft side too. I'm still not sure about him though. Violet seems to attract a lot of attention and action, good, bad and otherwise. In a way, she's really lucky to be half angel, but on the other hand, it just doesn't seem worth the price, with what she has to go through.

Embrace is a nicely paced novel, with just the right amount of action, love, and magic to keep you wanting more. 

Look for the sequels ENTICED in September 2012 and EMBLAZE in March 2013!
