It starts with a whisper: "It's time for you to know who you are..." On her 17th birthday, everything will change for Violet Eden. The boy she loves will betray her. Her enemy will save her. She will have to decide just how much she's willing to sacrifice. Dangerously exciting and darkly romantic, EMBRACE is a compelling novel of good and evil, seductive desires and impossible choices. A centuries old war between fallen angels and the protectors of humanity chooses a new fighter. It's a battle Violet doesn't want, but she lives her life by two rules: don't run and don't quit. If angels seek vengeance and humans are the warriors, you could do a lot worse than betting on Violet Eden. LINCOLN: He's been Violet's one anchor, her running partner and kickboxing trainer. Only he never told her he's Grigori—part human, part angel—and that he was training her for an ancient battle between Angels and Exiles. PHOENIX: No one knows where his loyalties lie, yet he's the only one there to pick up the pieces and protect her after Lincoln's lies. In a world of dark and light, he is all shades of gray. Two sides: Angel or Exile. Two guys: Lincoln or Phoenix. The wrong choice could cost not only her life, but her eternity...

I completely fell in love with this book immediately. I couldn't put it down! This was the first book I read that dealt with fallen angels and I wasn't disappointed, You can really connect with the characters while reading, I felt as if I was experiencing all of Violets anger and confusion as if I ...
This book was so good and I gave it five stars. I was really annoyed in the middle at the character of violet and I was going to give the book a lesser review but the end made the rest of the book even more lovely. This is one of the first books that I read that deals only with angles. The book did ...
I don't know whether I love these books more because of the amazing story, a wonderfully easy read, or the fact that the author is Australian. Either way, I love them. EMPOWER HURRY UP AND BE RELEASED SO I CAN BUY YOU. (2013)
I've never truly been one for books that have abit of religion based facts mixed in with the story but this had just enough to give an interesting background to the angels that are discussed through out the, book. The situations were very unpredictable for me, as it didn't have me already knowing wh...
I was hooked from early on with this, the authors way of writing was different to other young adult authors. Maybe it was the fact that Violet was turning seventeen right at the start and therefore we had none of the sometimes annoying sixteen year old stuff that is in others.That being said, Violet...
