Sister's Say: Engaging, Electric, and Epic
Violet Eden is Grigori - part angel, part human. Her destiny is to protect humans from the vengence of exiled angels. Knowing who to trust is key but, when Grigori reinforcements arrive, it becomes clear everyone is hiding something. Even Lincoln. The only thing Violet does know: Phoenix's hold over her is more dangerous than ever. The race to find the one thing that could tilt the balance of power brings them all to the sacred mountains of Jordan, where Violet's power will be pushed to the extreme. And the ultimate betrayal exposed.

Yes, all of these!!! As those of you who have already read Embrace know, it was amazing! But Entice is in a category all it's own! I don't even have to words to describe how I feel. All I know is I have read A LOT of books, and this one is definitely one of the best!!! Do you hear that people??? ONE OF THE BEST!!!
This is a pretty long book, and Jessica doesn't waste one word of it. This book is heavy on plot and does not leave you wanting for anything. Everything put onto the pages of this book is important. If something was mentioned in Embrace or the first chapter of Entice be ready for it to have some significance by the last page. There are bloody battles, gruesome fights, deadly betrayals, ancient mysteries, glorious revelations, epic kisses, and broken hearts leaving no time for boredom. This isn't a plot that has been regurgitated over and over. It's imaginative and takes you to places that you would never expect! Ms. Shirivington uses common knowledge of biblical angels, but twists and turns it into something new and frankly surprising!
The twists and turns of the plot lead the Grigori all the way to the ancient and mysterious lands of Jordan. They are in a race with dark angels to discover the one thing that could give them power over each other. If the dark angels find it, then it could be the end of the Grigori forever. However, this isn't just a normal race. They can't just walk into the mountains of Jordan to find what they need. They must push all their Grigori powers to the limits and that of course can't happen without some serious repercussions. Trust me, no one will leave those mountains the same!
Jessica introduces new characters this time around and delves even deeper into old favorites. New sides are revealed to both Lincoln and Pheonix that will haunt you for days and possibly weeks after. Both are more flawed than you can possible imagine, yet you will find yourself drawn to them more than ever. And, in walks a group of new Grigori that are amazing! All of them add a new dynamic to the group of Grigori that make them feel like more of a family. And, I have to say a little extra about Spence!!! He's witty and impulsive and so much fun. I loved him so much and here's hoping that there is much more of him in future books!
I know I had a big dramatic description at the top, but in all seriousness, this is one of those books that sticks with you for days. You will find yourself remembering bits and pieces only to be awed even more as you think on them. I am notorious for being able to guess plots and endings. I have ruined many a book or movie for friends and family unintentionally. But let me say, that is why this series is so wonderful! I was completely shocked by so many things that happened! It sucked me in, cut my heart in two (several times) and left me satisfied but in pieces at the end. Go read this book!a Rafflecopter giveaway
