Indigo Dusk: A Fallen Angel Fantasy Romance
Series: The Aetherial Embrace Trilogy #1
Author: Kristy Nicolle
Publisher: Kristy Nicolle
Released: April 21, 2020
Indigo Dusk is the first novel in The Aetherial Embrace Trilogy, the latest series to come from Kristy Nicolle (an amazing indie author, so you should go check out the rest of her works!).
Kairi Freemont just stumbled across a person she never expected to see in real life. Here, at her parent’s ranch, stands a man with wings. Yes, you read that right. He’s here, and he’s real. But, more than that, he’s offering her a way to escape her pain.
You see, Kairi has Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, and through the magic that Aro carries within, he can free her from that pain she bears on a daily basis. This opens her eyes to a world of magic and creatures, and yet there is something more to this story.
“The figure on the other side of the pond steps forward, the sun rising from behind me illuminating his face as he sheds his hood.”
I was blown away by how hard Indigo Dusk hit me in the feels. I believe it is Kristy Nicolle’s vivid descriptions and how she laid out Kairi’s life. Kristy Nicolle herself has EDS, so the details of Kairi’s life as not lacking, and it truly adds a punch here.
As does the introduction of Aro, if we’re being honest. His appearance throws her entire world into a whirlwind, which sometimes feels more literal than not. This story is very much an epic fantasy romance, and Nicolle delivers on that promise.
I adore that Kairi herself is a massive book-lover – it takes no time at all for readers to immediately appreciate her and her quirks. Naturally, that means we’re all quite invested in her story by the time Aro shows up.
Indigo Dusk is a delightful read, one that I am so happy to have taken the time to pick up. Since I’m a bit late on starting this one, I am lucky enough to be able to dive right into Violet Dawn (the second novel in the trilogy) with no wait. Yay!
