Embrace by Jessica Shirvington
Book review by Hush Hush Biz book reviewer Jamie Campbell.
Violet Eden was the typical teenager. She went to school, dealt with a nearly-always-absent father, and crushed on the only boy she couldn’t have.
Yet as she celebrates her seventeenth birthday, her entire world changes. With the newfound knowledge that she is destined to fight the forces of light and dark, Violet years for a return to her normal life.
But there is so much more to her fate than she realises. Caught between the love of her life that doesn’t seem to want her and the boy who makes her feel so… intensely, she doesn’t know what she is supposed to do.
With her biggest decision still to be made, her future is up for grabs. But will she side with the light? Or is the allure of the darkness too much to resist?
A brilliant start to the series, Embrace, is a beautiful, touching, and intense journey deep into the world of angels and demons. The love story intertwining the characters is perfectly done and leaves you yearning for more. With a debut like this, I can’t wait to see what else is to come.
