Mini Review: Embrace by Jessica Shirvington

Embrace by Jessica Shirvington
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire (March 6, 2012)
Length: 400 pages
Format: Hardcover

Summary from Amazon:

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..


This book has a whole new twist on angels. It was nice to see a new angle. For the most part, it was exciting but sometimes I felt like it slowed down a bit. I feel bad for Violet because she is always being used or lied to. I liked Lincoln at the beginning but then he turned "I like you but we can't be together but that doesn't mean you should be with him" on Violet. I also liked Phoenix but then he ended up having too many secrets and weird stuff. I loved the part where she Embraced! It was interesting seeing light and dark of someone. 
3.7/5 stars.
