Description: 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.

 Endless picks up right where Emblaze left off. Not only is Lilith back, so is Violet's mother. After the shock they were able to "hide" her from the council for a few weeks. But of course nothing stays secret for long. And of course they demanded that she has  to come to New York with Violet. After being separated from her for 17 years, her dad refused to let her go without him. While Steph, Salvatore, Dapper, and Onyx travel to Egypt to search for a mysterious potion, the rest of the gang head to New York, including Violet's dad who refuses to leave Evelyn's side.Once in NY, Evelyn and her dad is thrown in a confined cell. And Violet must go through testing in three weeks time; which she knows she has little hope of passing with so many Assembly members against her. Which is the least of her worries, with Lilith having Phoenix kidnapping children.

The whole book had me in a emotional roller coaster.  The Lincoln and Violet moments in the book were AMAZING! But with typical YA books the happiness is short lived. And then there's Phoenix, which I completely adore. I thought he had completely lost all of the good in him, but I knew he wouldn't stay completely evil. He redeems himself. And even has a heartbreaking scene. And of course Salvatore is awesome as always. And Violet and Evelyn's relationship rocky at first improves by the end.

The ending is completely heartbreaking. I'm so glad that this wasn't the last book like it was originally intended. Which even if I didn't know that, if the ending was twisted a little it would of made the perfect conclusion to the series. But I'm glad there's going to be more books, and can't wait to read them.

Overall the book was amazing. But I did feel like it drag on for a bit.

Rating: 4/5
