Shirvington strikes again with the second book in the series, picking up only a month after Embrace (2012) left off. Seventeen-year-old Violet is still trying to come to terms with her powers, her strong feelings for Lincoln and her powerful connection to the Exile, Phoenix. She and the Grigori must race to locate the Scriptures before the Exiles use them in their bloody quest for supremacy. Things are further complicated by the possibility that a traitor lurks in their midst and by Violet and Lincoln’s desperation to understand whether their love will save them or ultimately destroy them. No matter how bad things get, Violet doesn't run because the war between Exiles and Angels is on and she's wanted by both sides!
