Once again Violet Eden faces an impossible choice ... and the consequences are unimaginable.

Violet has come to terms with the fact that being part angel, part human, means her life will never be as it was.

Now Violet has something Phoenix - the exiled angel who betrayed her - will do anything for, and she has no intention of letting it fall into his hands. The only problem is that he has something she needs too.

Not afraid to raise the stakes, Phoenix seemingly holds all the power, always one step ahead. And when he puts the final pieces of the prophecy together, it doesn't take him long to realise exactly who he needs in order to open the gates of Hell.

With the help of surprising new allies, ancient prophecies are deciphered, a destination set and, after a shattering confrontation with her father, Violet leaves for the islands of Greece without knowing if she will have a home to return to...

Every time I finish one of these books, I find myself heaving a great sigh. Not out of relief, or frustration, but out of love. I love this series so hard! The books are long. They are impossibly detailed. And I just can’t get enough!

It’s tough to convince people to read a series based on a review of the third book, without giving away any spoilers. Especially when I tell them that delving into it will be a real commitment. Each book does have its own plot, but you can’t possibly stop at one! If you’re lucky enough to live in the UK or Australia, then you have five books ahead of you. If you’re in North America like me, you’re still waiting for the release of the fifth book. I have been pacing myself with the series so that I don’t have to have a gigantic gap in the series. I made that mistake between books 1 & 2, causing me a lot of grief. I was having an awful time remembering all the details. You know how at the beginning of a TV episode, they like to recap what happened last week? Well, when a book came out last year, I need something similar.

I have a short attention span for books. If the book is long, then it really needs to be exciting to keep me entertained, otherwise I start to eye up the next book on my stack. I haven’t been bored even once with Shirvington’s books! They are thrilling and fast paced, and even the character development leaves my heart pounding. I just wish the characters didn’t have so much self control! The sexual tension is boiling me alive! GET WITH THE MAKING OUT ALREADY!! 😉

For those of you who are thinking of starting the series, let me encourage you. Worth every page! They are books about angels, but without bringing religion into the mix. The cast of characters is among my favorite of any series, especially the villains! And while there is sexual tension, alcohol consumption and violence, I would still give it the mother’s stamp of approval. In fact, your teenage daughters would probably love you forever if you brought this home for them. *hint hint* (PS It won’t even break the bank! Did you see how cheap the kindle version is??)
