So I've always been in love with Phoenix and Eden, and I'm wondering if anyone knows any other YA books that consists of the main character falling for the guy thats evil or bad?? Or just any YA books with a romance like the love with Lincoln and Phoenix? Shay Falling Under by Gwen Hayes has one love interest, but it's forbidden love and he's dark. A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J Maas has two love interests, but the "bad guy" love interest is more in book 2.
What was the specific quote that Violet said to Lincoln about what she experiences when he uses his power? Joselyn Lucio its like warm honey in the sun wrapping around her, or at least i think thats what she said. See 2 questions about Emblaze…. Lists with This Book. Community Reviews.

They're perfection in my eyes and reliving this story was the best decision I've ever made. This is my very close second favourite of the series and I adore it so much.
When I read the books for the first time, the first 3 books were out already so I had to wait for book 4 and 5 and let me tell you they were the longest wait ever. The cliffhanger on this book made me want to cry thinking about waiting for the next one but boy was the next one even worse You know by now that I love these books. The cliffhanger on this book made me want to cry thinking about waiting for the next one but boy was the next one even worse. I could gush about these books all day. Violet and Lincoln's story is spectacular and I just can't get enough. I still adore Phoenix, especially in this book onwards.
I love them so much. Jul 16, Andrea rated it really liked it Shelves: angels , loved-it. I love this guy. He so deserves his own book. I liked the little insight we got about is family or lack of albeit, it made me sad for him. If you could hug a fictional character, I'd smother him. His loyalty was relentless and every time that guy opens his mouth, I either gush or smile. The guy is amazing.. Apart from maybe Phoenix. Maybe the same. Which Spence.
Which I am getting to. I fell in love with him more and more by each chapter. At first, I could not believe that he could be that cruel and would intentionally get Rudyard killed, and thankfully, I was right. That part made me a little teary and I really, really hope that he gets his own HEA coming from a masochist reader, that says a lot or at least karma for saving those all those lives - human and Grigori, alike - from the volcano and tsunami.
How can Violet hate her so much. I mean, yeah, she abandoned her and her hubby and also traded Violet's "fate" but doesn't she at least deserve a chance to explain? Plus, she is your mother! And the ending. Oh my god, I feel so sorry for her father. He's so innocent in all of it but he keeps gerring burned, by his wife, then his daughter.. A supposedly dead wife. I cannot stand that woman. I wish I could do that. Dapper is still a mystery and I have a feeling we may never find out what he is. Or maybe what he is will be a major plot line of the story which is completely contradictory to what I just said so maybe I should just keep my thoughts about him to myself, yes?
I found myself liking Onyx more and more. He's different, honest - if I were in Phoenix's position, I would stop at nothing to kill you, Violet, honest - unless he has ulterior motives and amusing. Who would've guessed.

The scene where Lincoln and Violet are forced to kiss is so beautifully written. I guess because its' solely based on their love and not lust, which makes it all the more romantic. And the not she left him near the end was sweet, and I found myself, hoping too that he'd read it with a smile and not a frown, despite my leniency towards Phoenix. Can't wait till Endless and hope Phoenix gets something good out of all of it.
And fingers crossed for that Spence spin-off. View all 4 comments.

I don't know If I'm the only one here. But I love Phoenix- I have since book 1 and I will until the last one. How anyone can blame him for how he is is beyond me.
He was judged and cast out before he said a word. He's finally experienced love- a completely new, unknown and very scary feeling and he has no clue what to do or how to act. He's fighting the darkness inside that he never asked for and struggles for control every single day, he only wanted her to live him and he may have gone about th I don't know If I'm the only one here. He's fighting the darkness inside that he never asked for and struggles for control every single day, he only wanted her to live him and he may have gone about that wrongly, but how can he know this when no-one has taught him right from wrong.
He had no role models, no life education to tell him how to cope with these feelings he's experiencing. Instead he has to helplessly exist and stand there seeing the person he loves love another. Yeah I hate Licoln. He's done nothing wrong but because of him Phoenix is miserable and will never be with the person he loves. This love triangles getting boring.
Anyway the bombshell at the end of this book. Was well.. I hope book 4 is out soon thats all I have to say! Poor James!

This isn't real. You know what's real and it's hard and it hurts and we can't Damn it, Vi--we're real! I'd die for you, give up all my power for you. I'd give you my soul in an instant, even if it meant I had to spend eternity in torment--just for one moment with you as mine. May I direct you to the quotes above? Emblaze was an intense novel--not just in the insane plot, but also in the decisions that had to be made, and the love 'triangle' that we've been watching thus far.
Shirvington's writing has the ability to plant the reader right in the middle of the action--the reader isn't just reading about what happens, they are experiencing it right along with the characters. In this installment, we follow Violet, Lincoln, and the rest of the crew as they journey to Greece to stop Phoenix from unleashing Lilith from the pits of Tartarus. In my opinion, this novel had the best and most intense plot of the series thus far. There was action on every page--they were fighting exiles, or Phoenix stops in for a visit--there was always something new happening.
Add in a volcano and the possibility for mass destruction, and you've got one of the best book plots in the history of book plots! I once again enjoyed Violet as a character. She's relatable, knows her limits, and fights for what she believes in. She's willing to sacrifice anything, even her own life, for those that she loves, and that is an ever present thing in this novel. Her selflessness is very admirable. Lincoln--we finally see Lincoln's true feelings. I had been waiting for this profession for what seems like decades even through I haven't been alive more than one For you Lincoln-Violet shippers, your dreams will come true at the endish of this novel.
I know mine did! Spence is also what of my favorite characters. He's noble, brave, a little on the reckless side, but he really cares for Violet friends only!!! Now Mrs. I have a bone to pick with you! How could you leave us with that ending?! We have an unexpected character, an evil exile, and just whattt?!?!enter

To all you Aussies out there--I totally envy the fact that you have Endless. The fact that it doesn't come out over here until late this year is killing me. I NEED to know what happens! Do you here me?! That is all. Emblaze was the epitome of a great novel. It had adventure.
It had fighting. It had romance. It had everything that you could possibly want in a novel. If you have not yet read this wonderful series, you really should: I can guarantee you that you will not regret it. View 2 comments. Sep 28, Lola rated it it was amazing.
Thankyou Jessica for a read worth waiting for, just another twelve months till Endless. Love the idea of finding out how Linc and Vi are developing emotionally, phsyically and through their souls with their Grigori power and human selves its interesting to read about but I love how its more focused on her life and her as a Grigori warrior not so much her love for Linc or Phoenix. The climax when Vi is hanging on the edge and Linc admits all just had me fogging up my reading glasses and Spence gav Thankyou Jessica for a read worth waiting for, just another twelve months till Endless.
The climax when Vi is hanging on the edge and Linc admits all just had me fogging up my reading glasses and Spence gave great comical relief when things were getting so frustrating and heart racing as I felt all of Vi's emotions when her soul was clawing out of her. It was a great burden to feel those emotions so strongly through a character, how strongly she felt about Linc and the turmoil she faced with choices of her family and friends. It was also interesting to see how she was developing her powers along the way and I really got a sense of power as she was growing stronger.
I loved how Linc, even just by being there that night in the park hunting the exile or training her in the park was supporting and released pain that I had built up as I was feeling Vi's emotions - He really did help release the tension she was feeling and you know there is so much more to them that you cant explain or answer because it runs deep to the core that not even Vi or Linc understand.
I did feel, when Steph was healing fast that I thought she mightve been developing to be what Dapper could be - which wouldve explained that connection or vibe I got off when Dapper was defending Steph and always around her and being really nice but shitty when Salvatore rocked up and then he goes quiet, so thought then it might be that he had feelings for her or she might be supernatural like he is and he was guiding her and I was expecting that to develop a bit more.
But it turned out the complete opposite! Was really hanging out to hear Linc's reaction to Vi explaining that she can travel the realms and talks to her angel maker, the idea of her keeping things from him about her power and from others confused me but I feel will only be answered later on down the track - Now I know what you mean about waiting for the characters to reach the right spot before closing the chapters.
Only thing that bugged me was waiting a year for the next book - Enticed and Emblazed were realsed so close together which had me thinking you, Jessica, might be keeping it to a 6 month period between releasing books, but a year is a hefty wait! I know it will be worth it, but a year is ages away! View 1 comment. Did I really like Emblaze? Will I continue on with the series? So, what did I love about Emblaze? She takes charge of every knife in the road that is thrown at her and refuses to sit back and be protected by the men around her.
She is more than capable of kicking ass and taking names and is by no means afraid to do so. I also adore Lincoln, he is a total alpha and utterly oozes sexiness to me. He knows Violet so well and is perfectly willing to take a back seat because he recognizes just how capable she is and is constantly praising her for it.
Those are the two characters that are most talked about from the series but I have to say that the supporting characters here are just as great as the main ones. I also have come to really love the unique angel lore that Shirvington has so expertly weaved. The back history of the exiles and the role of the Grigori in the grand scheme of things all comes together so well to create a backdrop of an epic war of the worlds.
I definitely appreciate that while this is a tale of angels and those that have fallen, it does not feel like a religious tale at all. There was even a scene where Violet had mentioned seeing someone praying and was uncomfortable with doing so herself because that had never been a part of her life. I am always so pleased with the authors ability to have such religious figures be so present in the story and yet make religion feel like a subtle undertone to it all. Through the three books in this series that I have read I have loved Lincoln and Violet and thought that there reason for fighting their attraction to one another was well done and believable.
But by the end of Emblaze I have to say I am over it. I am done with the back and forth. I mean these two people KNOW that they are soul mates, they ache when they are around each other and they ache even more when they are apart. The worst part is, had they decided to stop fighting the attraction when Emblaze ended, I most definitely would have continued on with the series so I could have had the pleasure of finally reading about them together.

Dec 02, Libby Wyatt rated it really liked it Shelves: books-i-ve-read-in Please that needs to be resolved in the next book otherwise I'm not going to be able to handle it. Overall, I really did enjoy this book. It was reasonably paced and kept me reading for answers. Chapters ended on mini-cliffhangers so it was an addictive and fast read. I love Spence and Phoenix they're my baes but please just resolve the love, connection thing.
It's driving me mad! Jun 17, Kayla rated it it was amazing. This book was so freaking good- it was action packed and full of romance which I loved. I really enjoy this series and I'm looking forward to reading the next books. Mar 31, Amity rated it it was amazing Shelves: favs. Emblaze was great. I don't know what it is about this series but it just keeps getting better. Violet and Lincoln's relationship or lack of is heartbreaking. I just want to scream for them to be together. Its obvious thats what they both want!
But then at the same time I can't help but be curious about what would happen if Phoenix manages to get her back. Choices, choices! Again in this book there is a wealth of mythology and Jessica retells old tales weaving them into the Violet world Emblaze was great.
Again in this book there is a wealth of mythology and Jessica retells old tales weaving them into the Violet world seamlessly. So much of my love for these books is driven by the characters and their relationships but at the same time it is all balanced in a fast moving action packed plot. The grigori travel to Greece to try and stop Phoenix from opening up the gates to hell and Violet and Lincoln have to work with new grigori that are from the academy. I liked the addition of these characters, especially Morgan. It was nice for Violet to have another girl around besides Steph and you can tell that Josephine is going to be trouble in the future.
One of my favourites is still Spence. He is such a good friend to Vi even though he doesn't always agree with her decisions. Anyway, can I just say the scene where Violet has to wear all the jewellery to go and see the keeper hot, hot, hot! I will forever be picturing that spider web around her leg. The other part I loved was the Phoenix chapter. I was starting to get really angry at him for so many things but then reading that was like wiping the slate clean and I loved him all over again.
Now I just want to see him do the right thing but I have this awful feeling it is not going to go that way: And was it just me or did anyone else think we might be seeing more of the rogue grigori Gray. My hottie alarm sounded loud and clear with him!! These books are awesome, I don't know what else to say! I am left dying to read the next one and find out what happens. The ending was :0 oh James!! I also read in one of Jessica's interviews that there might be more than 4 books which I couldn't be happier about. The more of these books the better!

Quotes pulled from the ARC may be incorrect and may be subject to change. Violet is back in the third installment of the series and she is still just as confused.
When will my book be dispatched from your warehouse?
With all the emotional turmoil Violet goes through she manages to still be as strong as ever. It kil An Advanced Reader Copy was provided by the publisher for review. It killed me. I would have found it interesting if this series was written in dual perspectives. I kind of wished there was one of those lists in the back where you can see their names and who they are and what classification they are. It may be a paranormal read, but the characters are completely different.
The comparison of Twilight in the sense that there are warriors with special powers which I always found the coolest and the forbidden love she has with her soul-mate, plus the love triangle. Glad some questions were answered! Overall, a wonderful addition to the Violet Eden Chapters! May 05, Kelly Jones rated it it was amazing. I read all 3 books in 2days unable to put it down, the worst feeling in the world was when I finished it also like many readers sayin it was until October we would get another taste o this series : I am getting annoyed at the "can't be together" attitude but I have to say makes it more emotional The walking away from each other, ignoring, trying to hide from one another, the little moments of joy then the ripping out of your heart That's what love it, It reminds me of having a 1st crush I read all 3 books in 2days unable to put it down, the worst feeling in the world was when I finished it also like many readers sayin it was until October we would get another taste o this series : I am getting annoyed at the "can't be together" attitude but I have to say makes it more emotional That's what love it, It reminds me of having a 1st crush and how long it takes and holding onto the days where these little things happen.
Love in the beginning is a fantasy until u finally Get it, Phionex is like an x who has a place in ur heart as much as u don't want them too no matter how much they hurt u. I have never been pulled in so much by a series although I have read many many amazing books, I have never woken up to feel my heart feel like it has broken every time I remember what Lincoln said while holding onto her in the volcano, that I have to go to the book a re read it, I had all the same reactions of violet when she knew her best friend was taken, The way Jessica has written these books made me feel that I WAS violet, I was quite shocked at myself And apart from the big and obvious questions about next book, I just have one Violets dad, I was picking up on things, her dad being called "John" and the restaurant Wasn't that the name of her partner before he died when Evelyn and he were taking down lillith?
Also it seems to way to ironic that evelyn eve her last name when married was Eden am she is the only one able to take down lillith There is a link there I think Jessica has being knowingly or unknowingly leaving little clues through all the books So I say bring on October!!!

But through it all, Violet and Phoenix's connection makes them both falter in their moves and Lincoln must watch, unable to do anything or risk shattering a soul if one of them dies. It is here that Shirvington's eloquent language weaves passion, forbidden love and pent up desire into prose that left my heart aching and tears blotting the pages. Forbidden love, sacrifice, family, friendship; Emblaze has it all. I can't believe I'm going to have to hold out another year until the next one comes out.

I felt so sorry for him, I think in this book anyway I loved him more than Linc. Shoot me but whatever, Pheonix broke my heart. I want to make it all better, I don't want him to hurt. He deserves SO much more, he is so worthy of love it nearly kills me to see that he believes he doesn't. Intense book, it was amazing That speech that Lincoln gives toward the end of the book was one Wow is an understatement.
That speech that Lincoln gives toward the end of the book was one of the best speeches ive ever read.
That moment and everything to do with Phoenix were the bits ill be re-reading frequently. Cliffhanger warning!!!!!!!!!! October next year?! Why don't you just put me in a coma till then? LOL Jessica Shirvington is amazing, these books are going places. Actual Rating: 3. I think I have a love-hate relationship with it. Sometimes it's compelling and shocking, other times its cringe-worthy cheesiness had me rolling my eyes constantly. So Linc and Violet are soul mate partners. After what happened in book 2, they're resisting each other because they saw what could happen 2 them if they "joined" together.
I mean when Rudyard died and Nyla was left like an empty broken shell, well who could blame them? But then thi Actual Rating: 3. But then this was where the cheesiness and cringing comes in. Whenever Violet was around Linc, she just wanted to jump him basically. Ditto for Linc. Now the author made it so that this made sense since they're like SOUL partners so it was their souls wanting to entwine together. It makes sense if u constantly keep that in mind.
