                                   Love will kill us all.

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…


Holy crapola!! This book was so not what I expected. Talk about me thinking that Emblaze was so unoriginal and boring. Violet really becomes mentally and physically stronger here and is becoming less annoying in that way. Endless left me shocked and a bit teary eyed at the end. As stakes get higher and Lilith back who is trying to kill all the Grigori children, Lincoln and Violet’s feelings getting harder to control, and on the search for 13 ingredients to something real significant. I must say, plots don’t come any better than Endless. As the story progressed I found myself constantly talking to myself:

“This was way better than I expected”
“Well duh! Didn’t all the reviews say it was the best?”
“Apparently there’s a love triangle”
“Apparently you haven’t been concentrating on reading so shut up”
Yeah okay I kinda got preoccupied on talking to myself like a weird person normally does.

Anyway, Phoenix really showed his kindness to Violet and I finally began to like him, though he was still pretty darn annoying and dark most of the time. This really made me feel sorry for him and it can only say more about how brilliant Shirvington’s writing has grown onto me.

“This was so unprepared for so many twists!”
” love love love!!!”

The tension between Lincoln and Vi was amazing! Unlike the other books, I was so empathetic and just so intrigued by them. I fell in love with then and was heart broken to hear Vi’s misery at the end of the book. It conjured so many emotions for me and before you know it tears fall. Just a few, wasn’t the most emotional, I just got a tad teary. The tears only came when I read this ‘…Steph was crying’ I swear me and Steph are soulmates, as that just made me sad. If Steph dies in the next book, let’s just hope my soul doesn’t shatter.

Here is me at the end of the book.
“What! No way! There has to be a sequel!!!”
“Stop gaping and get on Goodreads”
*searches*
*sighs* “Oh thank goodness!”

When the reviews say that the book wrecked them, I can sort of agree, I wasn’t really to attached to the characters so that was alright. However, the shock really hasn’t been recovered yet, I was expecting this book to be the last and also I preempted that there would have just been a ‘and they lived happily ever after’. But no, this book left me stunned and eager to read the next. Good job Shirvington!!
” I really want the next book, I died in reading this”
“Good for you Mel”

And these lingering words say.. Love will kill us all…
