Reviews for Embrace
Embrace was a fantastic read with a brilliantly woven love triangle, great characters, and a highly creative story.
In the beginning Violet is completely and utterly in love with Lincoln, who is one of her closest friends. After her seventeenth birthday, Violet learns that she is part angel, which makes her Grigori. Lincoln is her destined partner to fight exiled angels.
After Violet had already revealed her secrets to Lincoln, she felt highly betrayed by Lincoln that he would keep something so important from her. I really liked Lincoln and we don't get to see a lot of him, but seriously the guy is hot and being backed into a corner with no win-win situation seriously sucks. Especially when he does nearly whatever Violet asks of him.
When a character shows up out of no where, I always have some a lot of initial distrust towards that character. From the beginning I expected Phoenix to do something. I did not plan on liking Phoenix, because he is manipulative. He can read and alter emotions, which he does sparingly to Violet. When Phoenix reads Violet's emotions, he tells her exactly what she needs to hear when she needs it most.
For this reason there is no choosing of a team. I like both Lincoln and Phoenix. I'm not entirely convinced about the way things ended with Phoenix in the book. There's more to him than he is letting on. I'm seriously leaning towards Team Lincoln at this point though. We will have to see in Entice.
Violet is a strong character, who wants nothing to do with the Grigori. The choice about everything was taken away from her, so she decides that she will not embrace. Even with Phoenix constantly reminding her that she is a walking neon sign for exiles and that embracing would be to her benefit.
Despite the fact that Violet refuses to embrace, she gets thrust into the angel war. The war is only the beginning, sometimes it's impossible to outrun destiny. It's only a matter of who, what, when, and where. Not a matter of 'if.' Embrace was a fantastic read with a brilliantly woven love triangle, great characters, and a highly creative story. by Darla
