Violet Eden thought she knew all the secrets ... she was wrong. I now had little doubt. I felt the intensity in that one burst of emotion from him, felt his desperate need to eliminate me. Any small glimmer of hope that might ve been there - that somehow Phoenix would change, would be that guy I first got to know was gone.

On her seventeenth birthday Violet Eden s whole life changed. One minute she was a normal teenager obsessed with her art…and Lincoln. The next she has to get her head around the knowledge that angels do exist, both light and dark and she s not altogether human either. Violet is Grigori part angel and part human. Oh, and Lincoln knew it all along.

Coming to terms with her destiny is tough, but Violet thought she knew all the secrets. She was wrong. The ancient battle between exiled angels and humanity is far from over. And now Violet has to learn to live with her feelings for Lincoln while working with him to stay alive and stop the exiles discovering the key to destroy all Grigori. It isn t easy. Especially when the electricity between her and Phoenix ignites and she discovers his hold over her has become more dangerous than ever.

Searching for the answers she needs will take Violet halfway across the world to the sacred mountains of Jordan, where ancient stories come to life and her warrior spirit will be called upon to make things right … but even then her choices have consequences she never saw coming.

A captivating combination of mythology, romance and a kick-arse heroine make this book impossible to put down. Lose yourself in the Violet Eden Chapters latest book, ENTICED.


Enticed is the second book in Jessica Shirvington’s YA paranormal series, The Violet Eden Chapters, set one month after the events of Embrace. Embrace ended with seventeen-year-old Violet Eden struggling with all the usual teen problems; a crush on a guy who thought of her only as a friend, struggling to connect with her distant father, who was never the same after Violet’s mother died, and all of the extra issues such as fallen angels and being a Grigori, part human part angel.

Violet is training with Lincoln and having trouble making the difference between killing the evil angels okay and killing in general, just bad full stop. The book was so well researched with all the biblical references, characters and legends. Shirvington has created some pretty original characters- Violet, Lincoln and Phoenix, who we get to know better in this second book.

Can’t wait to see how this end in the next book in the trilogy.
