BookWhisperer Rating:

It has been two years since Violet Eden walked away from the city, her friends, her future and - most importantly - her soulmate, Lincoln. Part angel, part human, Violet is determined to stand by the promises she made to save the one she loves.

Living in the perpetual coldness of a broken soul she survives day to day as a Rogue Grigori in London.

But when an unexpected visitor shows up at her door, the news he bears about someone she swore to protect leaves Violet with no choice.

Even worse, she fears that this might all lead back to the night she tries hardest to forget. And what was taken without her permission.

Violet is going back to New York ... and she knows exactly who is going to be there.

With Phoenix in her dreams and Lincoln in her heart she knows it is only a matter of time before the final choice must be made.

The End!!!! Such a bitter sweet word in reference to the Violet Eden series. These books are stories are so momumentally detailed that while every book offers roller coaster ride to the end of the book they are also very exhausting. All of the other stories were minimal compared to the complexity of Empower. Anyone and Everyone that we have come to love and hate over the past books have an appearance in this last installment. The consistent teeder todder of romance between Lincoln, Pheonix, and Violet will come to an all consuming resolution. While it was everything that I had been anticipating, and the ending that I was looking for, it also tugged at my heart strings and I was left with a very emotional goodbye. This was a very sorrow filled story that takes on a much different feel from the past, and the trials that we have experienced previously are nothing compared to the emotional devestations that will be offered here. This was wonderful conclusion to the series. Everything seems to have been wrapped up nicely, and a stage was set for our imaginations to lay out the future. Watching Violet grow has not been easy, but it created such a powerful masterpiece that was a pleasure to read. I can not believe how much has happened, and it is all coming to a close. I don't know that we will ever see more of the Grigori and Exiled world, but it has been worth the grueling minute. After such an impressive display of talent I look forward to seeing more from the author my only hope is that she can continue the same level of splendor with all her other works. The bar has definitely been set high! ~BookWhisperer Reviewer Jax~
