LOVE WILL KILL US ALL
Violet Eden thought she was getting things under control. Then all hell breaks loose-literally. In the war between angels and exiles, she's about to face the biggest baddie of all time. Except she's not nearly ready.
The dark exile Phoenix is still messing with her head-not to mention her heart. And her undeniable attraction to Lincoln has gotten downright dangerous. 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 she will face...
This series… I have no words for this series. Every single time I read the newest book, I am amazed at how it is EVEN BETTER than the previous one, and I can say with confidence that Endless is better than all the previous three books! Rating wise, this series has increased from a 3.5 for Embrace, a 4 for Entice, a 4.5 for Emblaze and now a 5 for Endless.. are we looking at an "All Time Favorite" for Empower? YES PLEASE! The Violet Eden Chapters series is the only angel series that I love and wouldn't mind rereading again. This series is full of action, heart wrenching scenes, laugh out loud moments, and a ton of character development and fantastic secondary characters and a plot that has never dragged, even 4 books in. 
When I received Endless in the mail, I was so excited I honestly couldn't wait. I knew I was going to love it since I now completely trust Jessica Shirvington and I'm glad I wasn't disappointed one bit. This is a series spoiler free review. I was so happy when I finally got back into the world of Violet, Lincoln, Grigori, fallen angels, and the exiled angel we all love to hate. Of course with that we have our solidified secondary characters that I have grown surprisingly attached to, especially Zach, Griffin, Steph, and even Dapper and Onyx. We do get more parental page time than before. I know I have complained about the lack of parents in both Embrace and Entice but I'm happy to see the development occur. Of course in Endless, the stakes are even higher, with the entrance of an old powerful and evil antagonist, and Violet and her crew's need to ally with some of their own old enemies and figure out who is truly on their side. 
I just thought the plot of Endless was so full of thrilling scene after scene. Everytime I wanted to put the book down, when I reach the end of the chapter, something happens and I can't help but read another chapter to find out more. The cycle sometimes went on until I find myself still reading two hours later. So many things happen and the momentum never slowed down. I personally liked it that way and appreciated how I was able to witness how every little piece of the plot is starting to come together, especially since Empower, the next book, is the last one of the series. Sometimes long series suffer from abrupt endings, but with what I've read from the synopsis of Empower, Shirvington seriously knows what she's doing. My favorite couple, Violet and Lincoln, went through a rough patch in this book (like they haven't in every other one right?) and I'm anticipating how she's going to tie up that plot line. Their romance is one of my favorites. I can't wait for Empower to conclude this fantastic world Jessica Shirvington has created. However, I am sad that it is the last book. Definitely pick this series up, and my recommendation to always read Embrace AND Entice then judge the series. I wasn't that fond of Embrace but when I picked up Entice I was HOOKED.
