Entice is the second book in the Violent Eden Chapters by Jessica Shirvington. This is a series you definitely need to read from the beginning. Entice picks up right where Embrace left off. Violet has embraced and now she has to figure out what exactly that means. She already knows she's not like the other Grigori. She's also in love with her Grigori partner, Lincoln. There are rules and consequences that make their relationship impossible. Violet is also reeling from her relationship with Phoenix, who also has a dangerous hold over her. To make matters worse Magda, a Grigori member, is making the moves on Lincoln.
Entice is a great sequel to Embrace. There is non-stop action and adventure. Entice takes the Grigori group to Jordan where mysteries start to unfold. There are a few new characters introduced that really add to the already great cast of characters. I love that Onyx is back. He's such a great evil character. I also am a huge fan of Violet's best friend, Steph. Her character grows a lot as well. She's no longer hiding her smarts.
Violet undergoes many trials and tribulations throughout Entice. Her character has changed from the first book. The only complaint I have about this book is that Violet's dad is not around. He loves her in his way, but gives her no guidance what so ever. Violet embraced and became a Grigori, and he has no idea. He's so wrapped up in his own pain that he doesn't see her. I know that her dad not being around is a plot device to get him out of the way so that Violet can go traipsing around the world, but it seems like this is common in young adult books. Other than that, it's a great story and one that I would recommend.
