Violet Dawn is the second novel in Kristy Nicolle’s The Aetherial Embrace Trilogy, which as the full title promises, is a fantasy romance (like no other). Kristy Nicolle is an amazing indie author, so if you haven’t read anything by her, I strongly recommend you go check out her backlog!

Once upon a time, Kairi Freemont lived on her parent’s ranch, absorbed by the books she loved and coping with her diagnoses of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. Now? Now she’s been reborn and is the High Lady.

Only, her life is still full of struggles, as evidenced by all of the people currently vying to kill her. Life is never easy, not even for fantastical creatures.

“Hindsight is an illusion of control that simply doesn’t exist.”

If you loved Indigo Dusk, then let me tell you, Violet Dawn will not disappoint! It is every bit as intense and thriller as the former, delivering on all of those promises of magic, fantasy, and romance. Perhaps not always in that order.

I’ve been a fan of Kristy Nicolle’s work for years, and it has been a delight to watch her writing develop over the years. With that said, I sincerely believe that this latest series is my favorite thus far. The characters feel so real and compelling, making their stories carry more weight than ever before.

That it keeps blowing me out of the water (air?) certainly doesn’t hurt. There are so many twists and turns in what is a self-described fantasy romance, and yet I can’t get enough of it. Kairi’s life has been so complicated (no matter how you define it), and you can tell that her story is far from over (thankfully, there’s still one more novel to go!).

Once again, I am astounded by the level of determination that Kairi’s character holds. She’s an ideal protagonist, one that I will continue to support through whatever adventure awaits! Until then, I eagerly await news of the final novel in this trilogy.
