Paranormal Thursday #3

Paranormal Thursday is a new feature at Rather Barefoot than Bookless

In this feature you  highlight an author and a book that you really enjoy reading from in the paranormal genre. There are so many great books out there and so many awesome authors. So this is a chance for us all to recommend some books and authors to each other that we really like.

My pick this week!

The Violet Eden Chapters series by Jessica Shirvington
Book 1--Embrace
Synopsis: It starts with a whisper: “It’s time for you to know who you are…”

Violet Eden dreads her seventeenth birthday. After all, it’s hard to get too excited about the day that marks the anniversary of your mother’s death. As if that wasn't enough, disturbing dreams haunt her sleep and leave her with very real injuries. There’s a dark tattoo weaving its way up her arms that wasn't there before. 

Violet is determined to get some answers, but nothing could have prepared her for the truth. The guy she thought she could fall in love with has been keeping his identity a secret: he’s only half-human—oh, and same goes for her.

A centuries-old battle between fallen angels and the protectors of humanity has chosen its new warrior. It’s a fight Violet doesn't want, but she lives her life by two rules: don’t run and don’t quit. When angels seek vengeance and humans are the warriors, you could do a lot worse than betting on Violet Eden…

Book 2--Entice
Synopsis: Violet Eden is Grigori - part angel, part human. Her destiny is to protect humans from the vengeance of exiled angels. 
Knowing who to trust is key but, when Grigori reinforcements arrive, it becomes clear everyone is hiding something. Even Lincoln. The only thing Violet does know: Phoenix's hold over her is more dangerous than ever. 
The race to find the one thing that could tilt the balance of power brings them all to the sacred mountains of Jordan, where Violet's power will be pushed to the extreme. And the ultimate betrayal exposed. 

Enticed is the second compelling book in The Violet Eden Chapters.

I absolutely LOVE this series, and if you haven't read it, I hope you get a chance to!  The next book, Emblaze comes out in March.


  1. I'm not much of a fan of books with angels, but these have interested me. :) I see them aroung a lot.

  2. Nice! I have not heard of these before but they are going on my TBR.
