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 angel, part human. She has felt the influence of both light and dark.

When Hell unleashes its worst, Violet must embrace every facet of her angel self to save the people she cares about and the world as she knows it. But death is not the worst th

‘Everything is about to end, isn’t it?’ I asked
Lincoln stroked my hair and ran his hands down my arms before kissing me – just a light kiss on my lips, but one heavy with his love and I soaked it up.
‘Not us, Vi. Everything else may end, but not us. What we have ... We’re endless.’

With a title such as ‘Endless’ you would expect that this would be the final stop for Violet, but as Jessica has informed me many times before, there will be another two books in the Violet Eden Chapters... becaus
"Everything else may end, but not us. What we have ... We're endless."

You hear that? It's the sound of me ugly crying in the corner of my room because I have so many feels. This is my favourite book in the Embrace series and it was my favourite book up until I read A Court of Mist and Fury. There's just so many feels in this book and I'm so so in love with this story, this world and these characters.

This book ends on a very very evil cliffhanger. One of the worst I've ever read actually. To

This fourth book in the Embrace series (aka. The Violet Eden Chapters) will leave you happy, breathless, frightened, unfathomably heartbroken and dying for the next book to come out! It may also leave you wondering how much pain and suffering one person can overcome, but you won't be able to stop yourself from finding out.

Can and will Violet make the ultimate sacrifice to save as many others as possible and destroy Lilith? Will she and Linc finally get to complete their bond? You'll have to rea

Oh dear lord, why do I read these books? The fact that I have read three angel books in the last two weeks is going to require me to add an "angel" category to my shelves, which will throw them all off....all I can say for myself is that this blasted series kind of snuck up on me and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't enjoying it.

Before I go further, I should mention that there are several "things" about this series that would make more discerning readers want to toss these books into the recycle b

I am probably going to be in the minority with this book.. BUT, I have to say after reading the books in a 4 day time span because I was totally HOOKED into the story and these characters.. That while I did LOVE the ending for Phoenix,(PERFECT!!) I HATE the ending for Violet and Linc.. and really all of the rest of the characters except her parents! OMG, REALLY!!??? I hope there is another book because if not, I may have to come back and change my stars.. :( Am I the only one that thought Violet ...more

Seriously???? SERIOUSLY!!!! I cried REAL tears when I finished this book. Had to come and review it immediately! I am still shaking...still have the "I could cry any minute" feeling in the back of my throat. Oh don't worry peeps, it's not a spoiler - it's just because I have finished "Endless" which quite frankly wasn't endless... because I have finished it in under 2 days! Sheesh! Anyway, I am now sad as I have a l-o-n-g wait for the next book and the of course, Jessica Shirvington has left us ...more

OMG Jessica ..... I don't think I have cried so much reading a book... not an ending I expected ... loved every heartbreaking minute of this final book ... but why! !!! UGHHHHHH
I have always loved Phoenix in the other books but I fell in love with Linc more in this one...

What ?... This may not be the last book ... Oh relief ... Ok all is good ..I am happy with that ...

I just finished Emblaze and when I saw that the next installment is not to be released till next October next year firstly I died a little inside but then I just know it will be worth the wait
Ai Haibara
I'm reading this for Phoenix only.
Please please please let there be chapters in his POV *fingers crossed*
Really loved it! But, the ending! Can't wait for the next book!!!


October. Really? I mean, REALLY??? That's like... a life time away!!! -.-
Can't wait for more action, and bad ass exile butt whippin'. I need it now!!! ;)

Let's hope Vi and Lincoln can fiiiinnnnallly get together. Their frustrating dilemma is leaving me tearing out my hair. By the time it comes out, I'll probably be bald.

Well, now that's out of my system, I need to find another series to get addicted to!

Review originally posted in:

I like how the girl in the cover really represents Violet! Violet often ties her hair in ponytail and wears black shirt like the girl in the cover. Plus, I like the blue colour theme of the cover too!


Is love endless?

Endless is one beautiful and exhilarating ride. While I really enjoyed Embrace, Entice and Emblazed, the first 3 books in the series, Endless is the strongest book out of the whole series. I can ensure m

4.5 SOBBING STARS. Having read this book for 5 hours straight and sobbed and cried like a baby for the last hour I can safely say that I NEED the last book. HOLY MOTHER OF PHOENIX. I don't even know where to begin. It's a bloody brilliant read, gripping, intense, plot twists, love and the fate of loved ones in peril. Phoenix, baby, what are you doing to me? Violet! STOP IT YOURE KILLING ME. Lincoln! Omg I don't think this will be a coherent review but the emotions and feels are just too much. I ...more

What just happened??? Ok, I'm in again. I said in the last book that if Violet and Lincoln didn't end up together that I would boycott. Welp-EVERYTHING happened in this book (and not what you are thinking). This plot got tricky! My throat still hurts from swallowing my heart multiple times along the way. It was so action packed and heart-warming, and heart-breaking that I don't know what to do with myself now. These characters are such a family now, and Spence...buddy. Phoenix...mannn.

This book is second best out of the series- Empower is the best. The way Violet and Lincoln end up in the end was excruciating to read. It cut me in half to feel Violet's pain. It's the most intense book I've ever read. I actually cried!

Agonizing isn't a word that does it justice. Every time I read it, there's a ripping pain that just doesn't go away. It's hard to explain, but this series is so painful and innately good.

It's always so hard to read the last book. I've read this series countless

Neve Baskar
I would give this book a 6 if i could. The plot was fantastic and so was the story telling. It was much better than the other books and characters were beautifully developed. The plot ultimately shattered me as the twists were completely unexpected. There was a strong female lead who rose above the numerous challenges she faced. Lincoln and Phoenix were the best male personas you could hope for.

I'm in tears ....
Major venting... so don't read unless you have read the book or don't care about me ruining your experience of doing so!

Okay as soon as I finshed this book I wanted to rip in it half.
I initially gave it 1 star! Now I'm reconsidering only because there is hope for a another book. If the series ends with this book - my rate will go back to 1 star and Shirvington will be recieving a very heavy and raging letter!

I usually hate being associated with supernatual romance, but I have a soft spot for t

What to say about Endless... The writing was superb as always. Jessica Shirvington is as flawless as ever. The writing flows seamlessly. If I had one gripe about this book, it was that the first half seemed slow.

You start off right where the last book stopped. Lilith is back as well as Evelyn, Violet's long thought dead mother. Violet not only has to work through her emotions of dealing with her Mom, but there is the EVER present tension between Vi and Linc. Should we or shouldn't we bond. UGH!

After flooding my family room with tears, I am so devastated and demented after reading this book. All that is coming out of me right now is fume...ready to torch someone who crosses my path. Jessica Shirvington has really stirred up my emotion. I feel like my heart has been pulverized. I can't believe the ending. It is worst than the classic Romeo and Juliet. Gah! I hate Vi for what she has done to Lincoln. She doesn't deserve him. She should have just left him the way he was. Why even bother r ...more
