Love will kill us all.Angels are real. They aren't always kind. Violet Eden is certain of all this because she is Grigori--part angle, part human. She has felt the influence of both light and dark.When Hell unleashes its worst, Violet must embrace every facet of her angle self to save the people she cares about and the world as she knows it. But death is not the worst thing that Violet will face. For her, the endless question "Can love conquer all?" will faintly be answered.
I love Jessica Shirvington's Violet Eden series. As excited as people were about the first book, Embrace, it sometimes feels like it's become really underrated. In my opinion, it just keeps getting better and better with every book, and it was no different with Endless. To put it simply: I loved every moment.
With Lilith freed from Hell, the Grigori have a lot to deal with. But Violet is more concerned with what came out of the volcano with Lilith: her mother. The mother who's been dead for seventeen years. As if she didn't already have enough on her plate. But if Violet has any hope of ever having some kind of relationship with her mother, she first has to stop Lilith before she destroys the Grigori. With the help of the people she cares about, Violet might just have a chance to send Lilith back to Hell. But along the way, Violet has to sacrifice so much. There's one thing Violet isn't willing to sacrifice, though. But doing so might be her only chance at beating Lilith once and for all.
I remember when Embrace, the first book in this series, was coming out and everyone was excited about it. Since then, it feels like the level of excitement has gone down even though, to me, the series just keeps on getting better with each book. So Endless? I loved it. Every time I pick up one of her books, Jessica Shirvington manages to completely draw me back in to the world she has crafted in these books. And with everything going on in Endless, it didn't take long for me to get sucked back in. Endless took me on an absolutely crazy ride. It was one of those books where I couldn't seem to turn the pages fast enough while at the same time yelling at my Kindle and wanting to chuck it across the room. But the yelling doesn't mean I didn't love the story. Everything that happened did so for a reason. Or at least it better have, otherwise there will be some angry yelling at the next book. And with that ending, you can bet that I am dying to read Empower, the next book. But I'm also a little afraid of everything that has the potential to happen in Empower.
I feel like every time I review the books in this series, I say pretty much the same thing about Violet in each of those reviews. But I can't help it, I love Violet. She's such a strong person, and even four books in, she still surprises me. But as strong as she is, Violet also has this incredibly vulnerable side that makes me love her even more. And if I'm talking about Violet's vulnerability, I have to talk about Lincoln and Phoenix. I love Lincoln and Endless made me love him even more. Lincoln was also one of the reasons I yelled at my Kindle a lot. But Phoenix is actually the one who surprised me this time around. As much as I was starting to really strongly dislike him, he really comes around in Endless. The character I can't get enough of, though, is Spence. He just always manages to put a smile on my face. But there always seemed to be more going on with Spence. At this point, I would totally read a story all about Spence.
I loved Jessica Shirvington's Endless. This is story that took me on an absolutely crazy ride, but I loved every moment of it. Now I'm just counting down the days until I can read Empower and see how it all ends.
