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.

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 had originally read EMBRACE back in 2012, but since it has been a while I decided to re-read it, because I wanted to read book about angels. I loved it the first time and I loved it 2nd time as well. I know that I had said few times before but EMBRACE was unlike other angel books that I have read, it didn’t only have good angels but there was also dark angels called Angel Of Exile. It filled with so much action and that’s what I loved about it fact that it wasn’t just romance. Plus there was mystery added in the mix. Right from moment that Violet read her mother’s letter, I knew that something was up and I didn’t have good feeling about it. I knew that from moment that she discovered that she was half anger was that her life would change forever. I did wonder about the constant training that she did with Lincoln and once the truth came out, it all made sense to me. He was training, preparing her just in case. Lincoln wanted for her to be ready even before her time came, he wanted prepare her just in case.

Phoenix & Lincoln : It was hard for me to pick who I preferred mostly because I loved them both. I knew that I shouldn’t like Phoenix considering how he acted around Violet most of time, the way that he followed her around. From that moment on I had a feeling that there was something off about him but I couldn’t figure what it was. Do you ever have a feeling that something was going to go wrong? That’s a feeling I had about him. I wanted to tell her not to trust him, but at same time I could tell that they had a connection. As for Lincoln I wasn’t sure how I felt for him and I wasn’t sure if he cared about Violet way that that she cared for him, he kept giving her mixed signals and even I couldn’t figure out what they meant. At least till he started acting all jealous when she started hanging out with Phoenix but now I know it was because he was trying protect her. But now that Phoenix had left I am curious to see if anything happens between Lincoln and Violet. Anything more than friendship.

Now look at the cover. How can you not want to read book with such beautiful cover? I love the fact that her wings are bit fades out and way that she is sitting and looking, it adds a dramatic look and you can tell that something happened here and you will wonder what. Just the cover itself will tell you some part of the story. Plus all of the characters and the descriptions and emotions in this book, will have you feeling all those emotions and that will make the story come to life for you. It’s hard to believe that this was a debut novel. It was breathtaking. It will make you wonder what’s next in Violet’s life? What challenges and adventures will she have face next? ASTONISHING DEBUT.
