Some loves will last ’til your dying breath
Every choice has consequences—but seventeen-year-old Layla faces tougher choices than most. Light or darkness. Wickedly sexy demon prince Roth, or Zayne, the gorgeous, protective Warden she never thought could be hers. Hardest of all, Layla has to decide which side of herself to trust.
Layla has a new problem, too. A Lilin—the deadliest of demons—has been unleashed, wreaking havoc on those around her…including her best friend. To keep Sam from a fate much, much worse than death, Layla must strike a deal with the enemy while saving her city—and her race—from destruction.
Torn between two worlds and two different boys, Layla has no certainties, least of all survival, especially when an old bargain comes back to haunt them all. But sometimes, when secrets are everywhere and the truth seems unknowable, you have to listen to your heart, pick a side—and then fight like hell…
Finished the book last night, but I was still a bit shocked with what happen, and felt like I lost something. Jennifer is my favorite author from the first book she released. But this series stole a bit of my heart. Every last breath was a hard story to read at some point with everything that was happening and with love triangle and all.
The book starts with full packed action, with Layla being saved by Roth, and with her true suffering that she almost hurt Zayne in a way she never wanted. But being close to Roth, and almost died, she stops lying to herself and reveals the truth that she loves Roth and he loves her even more. Because, a demon has only one true love. The problem is, she will have to tell Zayne the truth, that she loves him but isn’t in love with him…
These words destroyed Zayne, and everything he and Layla thought they had. He really thought they had a future together, and can confront anything that comes along their way. But, what can he really do if Layla is in love with Roth.
This isn’t really the biggest of their issues. The Lilin is out loose and consuming souls, killing people and taking their form. All three of them must work together, because they will not stop the Lilin, the Alphas will and destroy everything in their path as well. Will they be able to do it? Will they save the world?
I can’t say I loved the ending, meaning I was convinced that Layla was going to end up with Roth because she truly loved him, but I felt so sorry about Zayne. At the middle of the book I was screaming let this poor girl take a breath, then by the last pages, I was sobbing. I felt the hurt that Zayne had because of everything that he has lost, but at the same time I was a bit happy that Layla was safe and with Roth. Mix feelings here. Anyway, I think series is one of my favorites and Jennifer this an amazing job as usual. I highly recommend this books or any other books written by Jennifer L. Armentrout.
