S u m m a r y :

I slowly opened my eyes. The sun speared its first bright rays of golden orange into the sky and I leapt from the cliff, with the sorrowful knowledge that no matter what the outcome, at least part of me would die that day... 

Violet Eden is dreading her seventeenth birthday dinner. After all, it’s hard to get too excited about the day that marks the anniversary of your mother’s death. The one bright spot is that Lincoln will be there. Sexy, mature and aloof, he is Violet’s idea of perfection. But why does he seem so reluctant to be anything more than a friend? 

After he gives her the world’s most incredible kiss – and then abandons her on her front doorstep – Violet is determined to get some answers. But nothing could have prepared her for Lincoln’s explanation: he is Grigori – part angel and part human – and Violet is his eternal partner. 

Without warning, Violet’s world is turned upside down. She never believed in God, let alone angels. But there’s no denying the strange changes in her body ... and her feelings for Lincoln. Suddenly, she can’t stand to be around him. Luckily, Phoenix, an exiled angel, has come into her life. He’s intense and enigmatic, but at least he never lied to her. 

As Violet gets caught up in an ancient battle between dark and light, she must choose her path. The wrong choice could cost not only her life, but her eternity...

Reason for waiting:
I've been waiting for this since its release last year oversea's. I'm so excited it's now going to be released in the U.S! I saw Kristy (thestorysiren) had gotten a snazzy cover like this one as a review copy and I kinda really like this simple cover. I hope they keep it!

The book itself sounds really really interesting. I'm always curious about angel books, they're always so different like how a lot of Dystopia's have completely different world's and rules, I like how it's the same way with angel books!

  1. This is a great choice, Marie! I actually have the first two of these in the AU copies (love those covers, too!) I haven't had the chance to read them yet, but the story definitely sounds amazing!
