Summary

I always imagined Death's final kiss would be cold. It wasn't. 

Four years later, I can still remember the exact shade of his skin: a blue so pale it looked like moonlight. I dream of his touch. Mostly, I paint the man under the heavy cowl, including those perfect lips which ruined mine for anyone else. 

I'm obsessed with him. 

The doctors say he's nothing more than a hallucination caused by a mixture of head trauma and emergency pain medications. I think he's a really sexy figment of my imagination. I mean, who besides an artist would dream up the Grim Reaper for their hero? 

Now, something's changed and my drawings are taking on a life of their own. As if college wasn't hard enough, trying to keep this a secret is going to be impossible. Keeping my sanity might be worse. And that's not the worst of my problems.  

Death is back.
He wants another kiss.
And he's not alone. 

The Kiss of Death is a 156,000 word, full-length novel with no cliff-hanger ending. This series includes multiple love interests, some M/M themes, and graphic scenes of sex, violence, and language. 

Be warned: Everything you thought you knew about the world, religion, and death will be pulled apart, twisted around, and put back together in ways you will not expect.

LOVED THIS!

I refuse to give anything away about this story, but believe me when I say it's fantastic. I couldn't turn it off, and I immediately went on to book 2. It's THAT good. Narration is absolutely spot on, and really conveys all of the emotions. Totally unique take on heaven/hell with very endearing characters. Worth every minute!!

Readers voice made it hard to listen to

Catos voice has a whiny tone for the lead woman. The male voices are good, but we mostly hear the lead female. It really ruins the story. It’s hard to judge to story when her voice is so incredibly distracting. It is so very irritating.

DNF

I tried. I read all the glowing reviews and I tried. I’m just not into the weak minded stubborn FMCS and I don’t get how these supposed hotter than hot guys are into her. I get that she doesn’t know who or what she is, which should be my first flag to not buy a book. I like my leads to be strong, independent, but flawed. This is just not that.

Christina Cato puts on a one woman show.

I love this story. I heard it produced once before and it was good narration. Christina Cato takes it to the next level. Her interpretations of each character makes the story even richer. We see the wonder of magic and new love.

Wonderful

This is one of my favorite reverse harems. I was super excited to see it reworked. This story is a fantastic take on angels and demons. Christina Cato did a wonderful job.

Please keep in mind when you listen to this book…

As of 9/5/22, there are only TWO of FIVE of this series in an audio format. Also, for perspective, the original book was published 11/2018 but the audiobook was published 7/2022. The last of the five was published in 7/2020… so if you’re reading this in 2025, hopefully it’ll come out soon! 🤞

Finally!

This is one of my all-time favorite series. The Audible version is even better. I cannot wait for the rest of the books to come out in this format.
