Please note this is a review of the third book of The Violet Eden Chapters and there may be spoilers in respect to earlier books, Embrace & Enticed.
Wow, the prologue took me by surprise and reduced me to a sobbing mess. I just cannot imagine being her shoes. It was utterly heartbreaking –especially since I’m a mother myself which then brings me to my inability to sympathise with Violet & her anger. I know the reasons for her anger but I just can’t understand it.
The stakes have gone up considerably and Phoenix will do everything to get what he wants. Or at least, that’s what it seems like. Phoenix is another character whom I found confusing. I guess Violet found him a bit confusing too though she still has hopes for his humanity.
I didn’t really feel the presence of Lincoln in this book though he IS present. And had stepped up to the mark too –especially in his leadership which I liked. The tension between Lincoln & Violet has also ratcheted up though both are doing their best to ignore it. Don’t worry though, there is at least one scene which is swoon-worthy!
The best bits in this instalment for me is the prologue and the last chapter. Man, Jessica Shirvington certainly knows how to end a book! In Emblaze, Violet if faced with many choices –on which many lives & destinies depend upon. It was full of twist upon twist and was set ablaze with action. The most action-packed instalment so far and I’m loving it. I’ll be jumping on book 4 as soon as I can get a copy!
