5 Star Review: Aeonian Kiss by Nicki Scalise

What happens to the dead when they die? Do they go to Heaven to Hell… 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.

Melanie’s Review


 Aeonian Kiss is another great book by Nicki Scalise. I loved Prayer for the Dead, and Aeonian Kiss gets just as much of my love. Scalise did a great job of continuing the story, and giving the reader bits and pieces of reminders through the story to remind them of what happened in Prayer for the Dead

There are twists, turns, love, hate, and every other emotion you can experience in a book. I still hate Katarina, I love Olivia, and I have a new found affection for Zane. Olivia has such an interesting group of friends; you really can’t help but feel connected to them (in a good way)! I wish I had friends like hers.

Scalise really tested the limits of my patience with some of her characters. I want to know more about each of them and what the hell is going on in certain situations that are hinted at and we are given pieces of here and there. Her twists are, for the most part, unexpected, and the outcome is never clear until the end, which I love. Aeonian Kiss is well written and flows as it should. There is corruption and intrigue. The bad guys are definitely bad guys, so you don’t feel bad for them. 

Poor Olivia. That girl just really can’t get a break. If it’s going to be bad, it’s going to happen to her. One thing I love about her character though is through it all, she keeps her snarky sense of humor and keeps going despite everything. She just has been through SO much! I was a little worried about her about 2/3 of the way into Aeonian Kiss, but you’ll have to read it to see why. 

I would definitely recommend Aeonian Kiss, as well as Prayer for the Dead to anyone who enjoys urban fantasy with likeable characters, entertaining writing and a good plot line. 

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
