Book Review - Everlasting Embrace

Title: Everlasting Embrace
Author: Charlotte Blackwell
Series: Embrace (book 4)
Publisher: World Castle Publishing
Release Date: April 2012

Sophia Pierce has walked the earth for over a century. She’s struggled, but finally found meaning to her existence. She found love, friendship and an amazing family. Now with the love of her life by her side, Sophia feels strong enough to conquer anything. Even raising a baby, born as his mother died at the hands of the Cerberus, evil Vampires. Sophia helps her best friend deal with the loss of her husband and raising their daughter. Stronger than ever, Sophia isn’t prepared for everything she’s about to learn.

Good versus evil seems like a pretty easy concept, but that’s not always true. When an Angel hunter comes for Nathanial’s friend, Ben, a Nephilim, Sophia and the Pierce family vow to protect him. Ben finds safety in the new Supernatural school created by the Pierce family, their shape shifter allies and the Magnificent Ones. With Caspian at the head of the school, things are bound to get exciting.

Everlasting Embrace will take you on an exciting journey, of danger, love and life. When one love leaves, can another be found? Can that love return to you once they left? Sophia Pierce will learn the answers to this and so much more as she helps the ones she loves heal.

My Review
If you have read my reviews from the previous books in the series, you will know how much I love these books. Charlotte is amazing and I have been waiting to hear from her about this one. So when I received this book from her on Tuesday I literally screamed in excitement. 
I love the world Charlotte has created and with every book it feels like I am coming home and catching up with old friends. Sophia feels like a sort of sister and it's almost like having a catch up with her when I open the book. 
This book carries on where book 3 left off and there are a lot of pieces to pick up, the Pierce family are recovering from deaths, demons, monsters and new discoveries. Sophia and Nate are totally made for each other and left looking after Nate's little  brother Nik, btu they couldn't be happier. 
A war is kicking off between them and the Cereberus group and now Angels are sticking their necks in too. It just keeps getting more excitement and this book really has everything - marriage, death, love, war, school, holidays, blood sucking, butt kicking and awesome powers.
Another difference with this book is that not all the story is told by one person, there are chapters told by Sophia, Ebony, Caspian and the new, awesome Michael. Angels may be in this story but they aren't all peace loving, some are out for destruction and the Pierce family must do their best to protect their friends.
I read this in about 2 hours, when I had to put it down I couldn't wait to pick it back up again, I just had to know what happened. Charlotte's writing style just sweeps you into the story, makes you feel at home and involved. And I love the mix of action and romance. 
The Pierce family may not be violent blood-sucking vampires, but they aren't wimps either - they have a purpose and beliefs and are not afraid to fight for them. They kick butt on a whole new level.
If you haven't read this series yet, I strongly suggest you do, it just keeps getting better. Here's hoping it's not too long before book 5. :D
