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…

What can I say about this book? Well, for starters, it’s an amazing read from start to finish. It also has some great characters that keep this amazing story going.
If you haven’t read this yet, that’s ok, I’m going to give you a little run-down of how this amazing story goes without going into too much detail about it so you can run out and get your own copy to see what happens. *wink wink*
Violet is like most teenagers (and to whom this story revolves around), young and secretly in love with her friend. But unlike most teenagers, she has a secret about herself that only a few know about, and she is NOT one of them. She is Grigori, and she must make the ultimate decision about her future just after her 17th birthday.
Lincoln is strong and athletic, and is also secretly in love with Violet, but soon, he too, has to make the ultimate decision. And that choice could cost him everything with Violet.
And then we have Phoenix, strong, dark, mysterious, everything Lincoln is not. He too likes Violet, but unlike Lincoln, he makes his feelings known from the start.
Who will Violet choose? And what decision will she make about her future? You’ll just have to pick up the book to find out.
This book was, as stated above, amazing! I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that likes a good romantic love triangle and angels. Or anyone that just loves a good book.
