Chance was gone; he’d sacrificed himself so Shannon and I could escape Sheol. We’d raised him on Shan’s spirit radio, which meant his soul wasn’t wholly destroyed by the demon gate….

Once Corine Solomon only had the touch—the ability to read an object’s past by handling it. Then she inherited her mother’s magick, and that ended up being a hell of a burden. But if Corine can wrestle a demon queen and win, she can bring back her lover Chance after he’s made the ultimate sacrifice. Can’t she? All Corine knows is that she can’t leave Chance behind if there’s anything she can do about it.

But the clock is ticking—and she still has to deal with debt-collecting demons and a maniacal archangel who’s running a recruitment drive. The stakes have never been so high…and this time it’s truly Corine’s last chance to save the love of her life.

I'm always so sad when a series ends. Corine has had many ups and downs throughout her life and AGAVE KISS rounds everything up and throws everything out there.

The events of AGAVE KISS start up immediately after DEVIL'S PUNCH. Events move at a pretty nice pace from start to finish without any downtime for the characters. Corine's newest situation was apparent to me from the beginning but I still enjoyed her ups and downs until she realized what was going on. I loved that we finally get to KNOW Brooks. He has been in the background for a while now and it was great to have him front and center. We had all our favorite characters in the final installment. Everyone comes together to help Corine and everyone who makes it to the end is closer because of it. I don't always agree with things that have happened in the series but in the end I didn't have a huge issue with any of it.

She lost, she gained, she cried, she laughed, she conquered. I was happy with how everything ended. Everything was tied up nicely and Aguirre ended the series on a nice note.

I have it 4/5 stars
