Book Description

Natalie Lindstrom has finally left the underworld behind for a new career in the art world. But there's one world she can't escape: the Other world of the dead. As a former Violet, an elite crime-fighter with the power to channel murder victims, Natalie is now using her paranormal gift to summon the spirits of legendary painters. But she's about to discover how far some people will go to keep their hold on her - and others like her.



Evan Markham, her ex-lover-turned-Violet-killer, has escaped from prison and he's been made an offer he can't refuse: Natalie. But first he must help contact a deceased geneticist whose most intriguing experiment was brutally interrupted. To protect her young daughter and herself, Natalie must search for the scientist's only living test subject - a handsome but tortured artist who is caught in the grip of two opposing forces: one that wants his survival, another that wants him - and anyone connected with him - destroyed.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4th of 4 books 10 Jan. 2008
By Mojo147
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The fourth book in this series is based on a sinister government experiment to turn ordinary people into Violets through gene therapy using a serum concocted by the late Dr. Bartholomew Wax. Wax is an eccentric scientist who has amassed the world's greatest collection of stolen art as payment for his covert work. Before committing suicide Wax returns all the stolen art work and exterminates all his test subjects leaving his work incomplete. Wax's former employers plan to use a Violet to channel Wax and get him to complete his experiments.
Natalie Lindstrom heroine in all four books is back using her long-neglected artistic talents to support her family by creating new artworks in collaboration with well-known deceased artists.
One of the victims of the violet "therapy" is Calvin Criswell, an ex art-forger to whom Natalie Lindstrom is attracted. Together they discover the violet serial killer from book 1 has had help escaping and is again on the hunt aiding a consortium of corps members who are trying to create violets.

5.0 out of 5 stars NOT SO SHY VIOLETS 23 Jan. 2007
By Michael Butts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Stephen Woodworth takes us back into the world of the Violets, genetically enhanced humans who serve as portals for the dead. This time around, heroine Natalie Lindstrom and her daughter Callie face evio from the Violet Killer, the serial killer who was murdering Violets and was captured by Natalie. But not until he killed her lover Dan.

Now the Killer is aiding a consortium of corps members who are trying to create violets using a serum concocted by the late Dr. Bartholomew Wax, who before he committed suicide had exterminated his test subjects. now the Corps plans to use a Violet to channel Wax and get him to complete his experiments.

An intriguing sideline in this book is the channeling of such famous artists including The Scream's Svink and even da Vinci and others. Woodworth keeps the plot moving and manages to make this incredible premise work for his readers.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read 23 Sept. 2007
By A. Walsh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was lucky enough to come across Stephen Woodworth with his debut novel of Through Violet Eyes and I was hooked. I adored #1.

From Red Hands left me breathless and wanting more! I was terribly disappointed in The Golden Blood.

In From Black Rooms, Stephen is back on form. I was glad to see that Natalie was meeting someone else, although I really still haven't forgiven Woodworth for what he did to Dan.

One note for new readers of Woodworth's books: YOU MUST READ THEM IN ORDER OF PUBLICATION!!!!

I was very lucky to have started at the start and have always looked out for his books so I naturally followed the order. If you don't follow the sequence, you'll ruin the other books for yourself because the entire plot of each book is rehashed.

Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is just the latest in a fantastic series. I am always left wanting more! The Violets cannot be ignored. I highly recommend this series and this book to anyone who likes suspense. You will receive it in buckets! I have already gotten several of my friends hooked as well! Perfect choice for those who like a combination of fantasy, occult, mystery, and the future. You should not be disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible writing by Stephen Woodworth 20 Aug. 2007
By Katherine L. Foster - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I absolutely loved the first three books of the Violet series. The stories were rich, full of drama and with many characters that made the story that much more interesting to read about. I have to say that Stephen's writing in this book was seriously lacking. The entire story seemed to drag on and on, until finally something semi-interesting would happen, only for it to go back to dragging on shortly afterwards.

While the whole concept of "gene therapy" made me really want to read this book, I feel that Stephen didn't do any proper research into this topic to even give himself some insight into how he could use the information to make his story better.

While some of the new characters introduced in this story were interesting and beneficial parts of the story, I feel like he didn't really explain why the "bad guy" was doing the things he was. Also, the ending was completely flimsy and pointless. I was really disappointed in this book. Stephen could have done so much more with this story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the Violets 1 April 2007
By Samantha L. Sayre - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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.
