One demon prince may be festering in the bowels of hell, but Genevieve’s troubles are far from over. Prince Bamal, demon lord of New York City, still wants her. But this time, he wants her alive. All signs point to the lost prophecy and his desire for her inherent power as a Vessel of Light.

While Jude Delacroix spends his days and nights searching for the prophecy, another

So sorry I'm just seeing this question. The best answer I have is, not really. While it may feel that way at some point, Gen figures things out pretty quickly that there is no real choice. I can't say much more without adding spoilers. I hope this helps.(less)

Sealed in Sin is book two of The Vessel Trilogy by Juliette Cross.

“Warning: Contains a demon hunter with dark secrets, a sexy angel with ulterior motives, and demonic creatures running amok.”

Is it unusual to love a book so much that you frequently have to remind yourself that ‘this isn’t real, Carol?’ I think this might be m

5 - "You’re mine now..." Stars!

This is a dual review for the second and third books in The Vessel Trilogy; Sealed in Sin & Bound in Black. I decided to do it this way, because basically both books are equally awesome, and I can say very little about them for fear of giving away major spoilers.

The best part though, is that all three are now LIVE!

Wow! What a ride! I enjoyed Sealed in Sin and every twist and turn that this journey took me on ❤️ and now onto saving Jude from the bowels of hell :)
With one demon prince down and out of the picture, Genevieve must now deal with Prince Bamal. Bigger, badder and more powerful than Dante, the demon lord of New York City wants Genevieve, her powers as the Vessel of Light and to defeat the prophecy she is part of, controlling her with his darkness.

While Jude has gone off in search of the missing prophecy, Gen will come face to face with her guardian angel, a being who has watched over her, her entire life. But is Thomas looking for more from Gen
I really enjoyed book one of this trilogy but I absolutely LOVED this one! I was taken on a wild adventure ride that covered every emotion possible.

While Gen is growing into her position as a Vessel, there are always dark forces working against her and the other Flamma of Light. I struggled with her response to Thomas but held out hope for her relationship with Jude. Of course, I shouldn’t have worried. This book definitely picks up the pace where Jude and Gen are concerned and I loved every mo

Sealed in Sin not only saw Genevieve growing stronger in her powers and continuing with her training, but it had me anticipating at every turn as to what was going to happen with Gen, Jude, George and Kat. The journey they were on to find the other half of the prophecy, had them traipsing all over the world battling de

My feelings!!!!!! I’m dead!!!!!!

Wonderfully ingenious, Juliette Cross weaves a majestic spell that sucks you deep into The Vessel Trilogy world.

Genevieve’s powers as the vessel are growing but she hasn’t fully awakened, leaving her vulnerable to possession by evil.

While Jude is searching for the prophecy, a “guardian angel” named Thomas has made himself known to Gen. There is something connecting Thomas and Genevieve.

Thomas offers Gen the ability she covets but at what cost will the power transfer come?

Oh No!!! I need book three... that ending... I'm a little sad and anxious now...
Gosh... I liked book one but I LOVED book two... :)
Genevieve's character is maturing and evolving and she is growing more powerful every day. The race to keep her from being captured and possessed by the demons is tense and a full time job. Jude, her primary protector is such an intriguing character. I really like him. The tension filled connection between Gen and Jude is getting harder for them to resist. More spe

Mon avis en Français

My English review

I was curious to read this second novel after having a good time with the first one. I must say that it is quite in line with the previous one. So yes, still a good time with that same volume even if a little something is missing for me again.

The latest Genevieve’s adventure had resulted with the death of the demon prince who wanted to keep her with him. Some respite you might say after so many worries? But no, this is not the case, and our heroine has

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.

SEALED IN SIN is really a great urban fantasy. It's got it all, action, romance and plot twists, with some creative mythology included. Though SEALED IN SIN plays off of a lot of typical urban fantasy tropes - the girl who doesn't know she's special all of a sudden developing powers, the dark and mysterious protector guy, the possible love triangle- Cross really manages to take them and spin them her own way.

SEALED IN SIN introduces the reader to more

It took 3 days for me to finish this book, and it's ONLY because I had to adult. Absolutely in love, and can't wait to read the next one! More demons and sexy demon hunters, world traveling, romance, and realizing we are all capable of toeing that line between the light and the dark. Juliette Cross has created another world that you will wish you could escape to. Happy reading! ...more

Where to begin???!!!! My mind is so completely blown right now that I'm having a VERY hard time trying to form the words to express my love for this installment. And how the hell (LOL) am I supposed to do that without spoilers?!!!!!!!

This installment picks up about 2 months after the ending of the first Vessel. Gen is becoming stronger with her VS and has been successful in defending herself from the lower demons Kat and Jude have been using/baiting as training. But Kat thinks

I love this series! Book two has some new characters which was an interesting twist. I've decided that Thomas is a creepy stalker and do not like him. At all. I would very much like Jude to meet him and possibly punch him...preferably in the face or maybe the crotch. I was kinda hoping to read the rest of the prophesy but I guess we will have to wait for the next book! Speaking of 'waiting'... they finally did it!

Book 2 in the Vessel trilogy is wrapped in unpredictability. Though an HEA is expected, the road traveled in this installment is anything but predictable. Sealed in Sin picks up shortly after events in Forged in Fire cemented Genevieve as the most powerful Vessel of Light , the being of which a prophecy foretells will be the most powerful factor in the imminent battle of Dark and Light. Unfortunately, Genevieve blunders and in her naiveté' makes a series of poor decisions that compound and culmi ...more

So, this review will be easy. I loved the first in Juliette's Vessel Trilogy, Forged in Fire, but I freakin' ADORED Sealed in Sin. Perhaps because there's...well...delicious sinning involved. Okay, yes, that was my favorite part, because Juliette does a fan freakin' tastic job with intimate scenes. As with her world creation and snappy dialogue, her sexy times are incredibly rich. So much so I actually snapped at the hubby when he tried to interrupt me in the middle of one. :)

If book one was all about world-building and explanations, book two was all the fun stuff! Interesting secrets, new allies, and the intimate moments were so worth waiting for! That ending though...argh!! Talk about frustration!

Little bit of a let down.

I don't feel like writing a super long review so here it is short (kinda) and sweet (not really).

(Major Spoilers below!)

Here's my reasons.

First, this book is similar to book one in that it is slowwwwww. It takes until towards the end to even get to the interesting stuff.

Second, Gen's badass-ness has yet to be seen. She is weak and has to constantly be saved. Damsel in distress anyone?

Third, Gen EASILY cheats on Jude with her Guardian angel Thomas, and on to

Loved it! Definitely no second book syndrome here. There was plenty happening and quite a few unexpected revelations.

SEALED IN SIN ended up being so much better than the blurb. I was thinking Jude would be gone for the whole book and this Thomas person would swoop in and steal Gen's heart, which I would be so mad at and would have to boycott the book in the name of Jude, so good thing that didn't happen. Although there are some crazy love triangle like things happening, you will be happy to know there isn't really a love triangle. WOOHOO!

Beautiful, artful, creative, bloody brilliant, imagination used at it's finest. Miss Cross is truly a gifted writer. Her attention to detail is spectacular. I must say this book was not what I expected, but it exceeded my expectations by 100 %.
I'll start by listing my Likes (this is hard because I loved it all). Kat and George. These 2 need a book of their own!! *hint*(Starting from when Jude and George lost her) ;) I'm dying to know what happened to Katherine, Domina, and Saint George. :)

Wow!! Juliette has done it again!! Trying to wrap my brain around the right words to explain this next installment in the Vessel Trilogy. Gen is training and growing in her powers as well as her love for Jude. And then we meet Thomas...her guardian angel. Who's side is he really on? Will he come between Gen and Jude? And what about George and Kat??? We get a little more background story on these two, but just enough to whet the appetite for more!!! They definitely need their own book(s)!! Sealed ...more
