Darkest Deeds by Lori Aisling

DARKEST DEEDS

Rating: 4 out of 5.

By Lori Aisling

Release Date: September 15

A bullet to the head ended Arianna’s murderous killing spree, but the afterlife isn’t what she envisioned. Lucifer claims her dark soul and grants her luxuries she never had in life: acceptance, unbridled lust, and encouragement to act on her brutal instincts. 

However, her undeniable draw to Jeremiel, the archangel of Hope, can’t be fought. A glimmer of pure light nestled deep within her begins to shine and she struggles to understand the honest and devoted love that beckons. 

An angel of Heaven covets her hidden purity, and the King of Hell owns her sinister soul. Neither is willing to surrender their claim. 

Hiding from either destiny isn’t working. Arianna is forced to face these uncontrollable emotions to salvage the fragile balance between Heaven and Hell and find her place amongst the Timeless. 

Will it be the eternal bond offered by her angel in the City of Light, or flanked by evil as Hell’s royalty?


Adventures in Literature Review:

This was a book, that when I read the description, I knew I had to read this. It has a very different, and quite unique, story approach. While being a very dark read and heavily focused on the darkness within the main character Arianna, the darkness felt very justified in my opinion. There are a lot of elements to the reasoning behind why she is the way she is. I don’t want to elaborate too much on that because it would give too many things away.

There is a defined difference between Heaven and Hell and Arianna gets to experience this void through her own processing of her life and experiences. The story takes the reader through many different timelines and scenarios, which I found a little jarring at first just trying to keep up with the events and where I was in the story. But even if you have to read back through some things to get your bearings, the story is beautiful in it’s very unique dark way.

You will find Angels, Lucifer and Arianna herself interacting and exposing their very own foundational wants and desires in a way you never even fathomed. My heart was hurt and broken through several parts but I consistently felt a connection to Arianna and I could always justify her actions in my own mind. Even if the things she did were violent and grotesque, she has her reasons for why she is this way.

Exploring her path and seeing what she experiences is an eye opening read that makes you stop and evaluate your own life and decisions. How would you act if faced with similar circumstances? What justifiable lines start to blur in your own world of right and wrong? Check out Darkest Deeds and find out today!
