    This was a waste of time. It was forced and very stilted. Probably one of the worst books I have ever read.

    First off: I absolutely love the concepts of the Violets. If you don't know what they are, don't start here. This is the final Violets book. And all of the little details that Woodworth thinks of add a lot to building a great alternative reality. But I have to give it only two stars because the writing in this one was mediocre (there are 4 characters with nearly the same name, and it's just distracting). Generally, I felt the story's a little weak, when the concept is just SO great.Maybe the publisher rushed him to get this book out the door. But there's just a little too much re-capping the previous stories, the character development is weak, and I found the ending (more than) a little disappointing. (view spoiler)[Really? She wasn't sure about if it would work out with Cal, but she's willing to let the NAACC win to stop him from goin to jail? *sigh* (hide spoiler)]Overall, it's still a quick easy read. Can't say much more than that.

    I love this concept. I can't get over how Mr. Woodworth keeps revealing more and more about the Violets and how they function. I love how the series is progressing. He is really showing how full his characters are that he's developing and adding different characters for you to care about as he kills off others to make you feel it. I'm not going to write a plot summary since so many others have already did this. I will say that you need to read the previous books for you to get the complete picture of Evan. He's back and badder than ever. I loved the science of how a Violet works and how the brain nodes function. I didn't really like how fast the book wrapped up. I felt that Mr. Woodworth skipped over some things very quickly that I'm hoping he explains more in detail in his next book. I highly recommend this book and the series.

    This is the last entry in the Violet series and as such brings us back to the first book. Numerous characters from the first book reappear and the story, while not the same, resonates with it. I had several problems with this book, the first of which being that the author never seems to cut Natalie a break. For every scrap of happiness she gets, she has to give up 10 fold. While there is a 'happy' ending to the story, it wasn't happy enough for me. (view spoiler)[The Corps essentially wins after 4 books. How is that happy? (hide spoiler)] This wasn't supposed to be the end of the series. The publisher decided against more books because of declining sales. By making book 4 the last in the series, it devalues all of the books.

    This is the final Violet mystery. It starts on something of an up note, because it looks like Natalie has finally found a way to use both her love of art and her Violet abilities together, as she always wanted. Unfortunately, this makes her a target for a black-ops plot within the NAACP itself. It also ties back in neatly with the Violet Killer from the first book.Again, though, I find myself docking it a star because of how annoying the NAACP is, how bratty the daughter became, and how irritated I was by the ending (which is largely unrelated to the rest of the story.) It kind of felt like Woodworth just needed to be done with it.

    This is a review of the series as whole. I really enjoyed these books. They were all fast-paced with a good central mystery. The world building was unique and aptly described. Natalie, a Violet, is our main character throughout the series and she can contact the dead. Mr. Woodworth created great mysteries and infused the books with tons of suspense. Following Natalie's life and adventures was really fun and I am sad there isn't a fifth book.

    I really liked From Black Rooms more that the previous installment In Golden Blood. I really loved the whole art history bit of the book. Also, I really liked that Natalie is having better lucked with men since Dan died. Callie is becoming quite a fun character and I'm hoping that there are more books just so I can see what happens to her. I did have a small problem with how it ender because unlike the first 3 books there were so many loose ends. Hoping for more in this series!

    Enjoyed the final book as much as the others. I wish Woodworth would write more.Someone is experimenting on the general public and trying to turn them into Violets, but there seems to be something missing. Dr. Wax kills all the subjects then is killed himself. Dr. Pancrit knows that Wax knew more than he was willing to expose so Pancrit has Natalie Lindstrom kidnapped with her daughter to force Wax to reveal what he knows.

    I can't tell you how disappointed I am that still no additional books in this series have been published. I experienced a thrilling reading experience, with momentum that took me racing straight through book 4 without stopping. This is one series that you just have to read for yourself to fully appreciate.

    This was a pretty good one and a decent ending to the series. I had read the first book so long ago, and never new about the other 3 until recently. It was fun to have some new stories and mysteries set in this world with the Violets. I have liked the main character throughout.

    Very goodThis book kept me guessing. It was very well written, and although the main character sometimes got on my nerves with all of her quirks, when it was all read I can still say that I like her.

    The child was an annoying, ungrateful, and an insolent nuisance at times. And the fact that the mother almost instantaneously develops feelings almost automatically is annoying. Ugh.. Why did I feel the need to finish this series.

    Read this and not any of the others, but it did stand on its own. However, while the worldbuilding was interesting, the characters were awful. Flat and boring. And this book features one of the least convincing love stories I've ever read.

    Wonderfully written and well thought out plots, this is the 4th book in the Violet Eyes series. A sort of futuristic approach to the supernatural, it's a sci-fi, horror and mystery rolled up into one. I love the characters and the twists and turns through out the series. Highly recommended.

    I Love this series I hope that the author does not stop and keeps them coming and fast and that!

    Last book in the Violet series. Interesting plot in this instalment, but it didn't really take off and fell flat towards the end. Disappointing conclusion.

    This was a fairly good read. I really enjoyed the first two books in the series the best. I am sad to hear this author won't be continuing the series.

    Still love the characters and concept, but this last one the series didn't keep me as involved as the previous three - so I couldn't give it a full 5 stars. Still an entertaining good read!

    Mental note: Don't come into a series at the end and expect to enjoy it.

    The other books in the series were better, this one just felt rushed. But I loved having a little more of this series
