Aeonian Kiss by Nicki Scalise


4 Stars|Amazon|Goodreads

I am So glad that I finally got the chance to read this novel. It was like a breath of fresh air in my reading library. Don't get me wrong, sometimes it is great to have novels that have a plot you kinda have an idea about. This novel had me on my toes guessing the entire time. Just like with Nicki's first in the series, this novel was Fantastic. Olivia and Drake's story left me breathless with the first novel in this series. When I jumped into this one I went in with all expectations of having a particular outcome. You can imagine how unhappy I was to find myself NOT getting that outcome. But I didn't fret, I knew Nicki would do this story and its characters justice. Olivia is back and it is not all she hoped it would be. Olivia has secrets. Secrets from her time away that could wreck havoc on her world. With Drake out of her life she isn't doing all that well. Throw in demons from the past and other revelation from the world and Olivia is in for a wild ride. Nicki gives us a novel about survival. I went into this story thinking it would be going one way with the main plot, and was blown away by some of the twists that Nicki wove in. Aeonian Kiss was a work of magic. Just as you think you have one thing figured out, the rug is pulled out from under you. There were a few parts where I just wanted to scream at the characters because I knew what was going on and they were still so Clueless! But, it all worked out for me in the end. I couldn't be more ecstatic for where this series is going to lead.


What happens to the dead when they die? Do they go to Heaven or Hell... or maybe on a luxury cruise? It wasn’t a question Olivia Brennan ever thought to ask. After all, once you've been to Hell and back, how much worse can things get? Her harrowing descent has already cost her everything—her home, her career, the man she loves. But when an enemy resurfaces looking to settle a score, she learns there’s more to lose than she ever imagined. Purgatory harbors more secrets than the depths of Hell, and Olivia has landed smack dab in the middle of their tangled web. Faced with an impossible choice, she must reach into the darkest parts of her soul for the strength she needs to save everyone she loves. But even if she succeeds, will she ever be the same again? Maybe some questions are better left unanswered. If there’s one thing experience has taught her, it’s that the universe loves to kick her ass.
