Alyx works in a museum. She has suffered some loss and is now preparing to get married to Daniel. She is aiming to "settling" even though she feels that there is something missing in her life.
Israel lives in the same city. He seems to just exist with the feeling that he is waiting for something to happen. He is not quite sure what it is though.
Baltazar, Vix and Jordan are old friends from Alyx's and Israel's previous life. They decide to put a plan together to help these two find whatever is missing in their lives. Interfering with fate is not always a wise thing to do and this brings about some alarming consequences. When Alyx and Israel are unknowingly brought together, they have this sense of recognition and familiarity which they are unable to explain. This is when tragedy strikes and takes us on an incredible journey.
Alyx is stuck in a DreanScape and will be lucky if she gets out of it alive. Israel ends up in the same place and together, they face some difficult hurdles. They also have to face their own fears which materialise when they are in fighting their way through a maze. One of enemy from the past puts obstacles in their way. Will they be able to get out of the DreamScape before it's too late? Will Alyx survive?
Afterlife is an excellent addition to the Dark Angel saga. It's full of action and danger. Israel has a great sense of humour and tries to make light out of things even when danger is lurking. Alyx is very quiet and reserved but Israel brings the best out of her. The interactions between Baltazar and Vix are pretty hilarious. It's interesting to see Israel and Alyx in a different light and the attraction between them leaves no doubt that they are soul mates. A very good read indeed. I have read all of the Dark Angel saga to date and would fully recommend to other readers.
I received an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
You don't need to read the other stories in the series to be able to enjoy this book.
This was a great fantastical tale of two angels that chose to be reborn to be able to live a human life in love together. But they're both in their early twenties and haven't met yet and their previous angel friends interfere to bring them together and 'cause all sorts of trouble.
Alyx and Israel have to recall things learned in their past angel lives to be able to save Alyx from the trap she's stuck in and get to know each other in their current forms.
There's some somewhat gorily described scenes involving demons and injuries so I wouldn't recommend this book for young readers.
It's well written and I would go back and read the other stories if they're as good as this one in the rest of the series.

This was a pinnacle of all endings.....seriously, nothing could have made this ending any better than what Peach has written.
The Afterlife of Alyx and Israel takes us into the lives of these two characters - as the title suggests - in their afterlife. Their fated paths cross once more and from then on both Israel and Alyx bark on yet again a dangerous adventure where together they must face not only challenges, but a growing attraction that neither can help or explain.
Can they solve the riddles presented to them throughout their journey in time?
Will they learn to remember their past lives? Can they even remember?
Will they be able to save themselves?
Both Vix and Balthazar cracked me up in this one, I mean I loved them in the previous books, but their wittyness with one another is hilarious, here are 2 quotes that made me cry with laughter, and thought you'd enjoy them like I did.
"Balthazar anorted. "Puh-lease. If the plan is diabolical then you need someone who is versed in all manners of diabolicaliness." "And you think you'd be any help?" she scoffed. "I am the Master of Disaster. The Shemin' Demon. I had a Ph.D in diabology."
"Vix snorted. "Literally. I'm surprised you could even attend. Shouldn't your kind burn up upon entry or something?" Balthazar gave her a horrified look. "Shame on you for perpetuating myths like that. I should report you to the Society for Reducing Public Stigma for Demons and Other Hell-Creatures."
The blurb added in the end gives us hope for future books, gives us an insight at finding out what happens to Lukas and Siana. I was wondering if they would get their own book and of course Peach, you didn't disappoint.
This book could not have been a more heart warming and unforgettable conclusion to one of the most captivating series I have ever had the privilege of reading. There simply aren't words to describe the brilliance of The Afterlife of Alyx and Israel.
An absolute must read!
Thank you Peach, for the ARC.
