  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 thing that Violet will face. For her, the endless question 'Can love conquer all?' will finally be answered.

Best book in the series so far!!

  This is the series that I fell in love with.  Finally in book four I have been rewarded for the patience that I used, the same patience that was wearing thin in the last book.  The premise that kept me coming back for more, despite the battering it suffered because of the triangle has conquered my love once again.  Shirvington has brought back the important stuff and though not everything was happy, it was a far better turn of events than I could have expected.  However, you can't have the good without the bad, and this book brought out everything between as well.

  Taking off right where Emblaze left us, Endless is the non stop read I have been waiting for in this series.  Jessica Shirvington really delivered a plot to hang on for and a story to pull me right back into this series.  There was so much to accomplish in this book and so many places to go but everything was managed without over doing it.  I found that the pacing was basically perfect and every twist took the steps that I really feel the plot needed, the series needed.

  Violet has more than come into her own.  Yes, she occasionally still pulls away from what she really wants and is as stubborn as all hell.  I think the reason I have struggled through the last couple of books was because she really has amazing potential.  That is once she stops worrying over her love life and the two guys that pull at her in different ways.  Endless was like an awakening of many things for her and she was able to step up and do what needed to be done despite everything.  This is not to say that I didn't feel there were some things that she should have fought a little bit harder or not just let go of but overall her growth was in leaps and bounds in this book.

  All I have to say about the triangle of Lincoln, Phoenix and Violet is that I hope that it is over.  Though it seems to be there is still another book and sometimes things that seemed finished... aren't so much.  I did love what happened in this one with the romance, mostly that is.  However, I have a greater respect and understanding for what happened.  This does not mean I like it but I accept it anyway.

  This is my favorite book in this series and I can now say that I seriously look forward to reading the last book.  I have had the spark I felt when I first picked this series up lit once again and I hope that the next book turns it into a fire.  For those of you that have picked up this series and loved it from the start this book will be your biggest treat so far.  For those of you that haven't picked it up or remain on the fence, hang in there because Endless will make this series worth the effort!!

  Griffen was standing at the head of the dining table, while Lincoln had moved to back wall and was leaning against it.  Everyone else had taken seats.  I chose the empty space beside Dad.  It was strange having everyone together and in my home.  My two worlds had collided and I desperately hoped it was a good thing.
  When I didn't immediately smile back, as if sensing all of my fears for our tomorrows and my sadness about the things I   we   had to leave behind, he grabbed my hand.
  Honey and spice and all things dangerous are nice.
Their suggestion was to do everything I could to look weaker than I really was   a concept that went against my nature. But I could try.
  Yeah, that's right.  I can feel you leaking your calm crap into me and I've had about enough of my emotions being messed with to last a lifetime.  He didn't need telling twice.  The trickle of his power moved away from us and he gestured to the front pew.
  "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, nut not us.  What we have... We're endless."
  I stood and wiped away the tears with the back of my hand.  Phoenix had been wrong about a lot of things.  But he'd been right about one thing: "Love has killed us all."
