I need to stop being surprised by how much I love this series because I’m running out of words to describe it and starting to sound like a bit of a sap. This book continues the series trend of being well paced - with Armentrout’s writing style effortlessly pulling together different plot points into a really engaging storyline.
I felt that out of the three books in the series, this one had the strongest plot line (which is saying something because I really enjoyed the previous two!) I will say that it is a romance heavy plot (not that I’m complaining) but at points I did almost want to send them a text reminder like: you've got bigger fish to fry guys. I also liked that, even though this is the series finale, the world continued to expand and gain depth.
All in all this was a great end to the series and checked all the boxes I wanted it to. Armentrout masterfully tied up all the loose ends while leaving the door ajar just enough that I’m really looking forward to picking up the Harbringer series to see what’s next in store for this world.
Jennifer Armentrout has a fantastic imagination mixing folklore with mystery and a leaning towards imaginary actual events. In other words the series has a great storyline, characters and writing. I loved all three books for different reasons, the first because it sets the scene, the middle because it twisted events and went in a way I didn’t predict and the third because it wrapped everything up with the slightly menacing probability that things maybe weren’t quite as good as they’d appeared. Layla is a great heroine, not quite as confident as she appears but with a brilliant strength of character. There are two main male characters who are both really well written, Zayne and Roth. Another reviewer said we all want a Roth - we do - or a Zayne. There are lots of good supporting characters too. These books are expensive, especially as they have been written for a while but they’re worth it. Excellent. They do contain some sex scenes for younger readers to be aware of.
This series is well worth reading. I am sorry that it has come to the finale, but extremely happy about how it ends.
Zayne, Roth and Layla are looking for the same end result despite being on opposite sides. There are a lot of changes for Layla. It's not easy for her to make a decision which turns out to be the right one. Whichever way she goes is bound bound to upset someone.
There are some cheesy parts, but the overall concept trumps all. I absolutely love Roth and Layla. Cayman and Bambi bring that additional spark, but Bambi's fate is quite disheartening though.
Great storyline. Lovable and loving main characters. A fascinating journey in the paranormal world.
I struggled through this book. The romance writing is way too OTT for me, there doesn't really seem much plot in this and the two earlier books int he series. Probably could have combined all three into one much better book. I still love the concept with the Evil fighting Gargoyles, and Roth is generally a great character (until the undying, i will die for you declarations he makes) , Layla though is a bit boring for me.
N.B i did pick up Storm and Fury, the sequel series to this and it is so so much better!
Parting with these series was hard for me, so hard that I put off reading this book for awhile. However I had to face the inevitable and finally decided to read it.
This book had me on the edge from the very first chapter, each plot twist was mind blowing. I am convinced JLA really wished to make me suffer because I shed many tears. When I finished the book, I sat quietly for awhile. I didn’t know what to do or think. All I knew was that these series won a place in my heart.
There were sad and happy moments. There was a lot of suspense and frustrations but our lovely Layla made through all of them. Layla came a very long way, from the very insecure girl to a selfless bad ass that believes in herself. There were so many revelations and I didn’t expect any of them, the truth was so far from what we thought... The new characters introduced were bittersweet, I loved Robin and the Grim but I wanted to fully murder the witches. I still can’t believe their price for helping Layla and I still can’t believe JLA did what she did. Again, cried like a baby.
Overall, this was an epic ending of the series. I will carry Roth and Layla in my heart and as I am writing this review, I am already planing to reread the series.
A brilliant trilogy and a HEA for two of the main characters. I usually hate stories where there is a trio romance because I always feel for the one that gets thrown to the waste side. My heart bled for the one she didn't choose but she made the right choice. For Layla to become totally intimate with the one she let go could have eventually killed him. Both Roth and Zayne made great sacrifices for Layla. Towards the ending of the story I thought it wouldn't end well and Layla wouldn't get her HEA because to kill the Lilin she had to make a selfless act to save mankind. What a lovely emotional story with some funny one liners. I loved the sarcasm between the characters and Layla is an amazing strong character. All the characters are well written and you can feel their emotions through the writing. There is sexual content. Another brilliant trilogy from this talented writer.
Every Last Breath 5* WOW WOW WOW WOW! What a book. What a fantastic end to a great trilogy. This book starts excaley were the last book ended. The Lilin has taken Sam’s sole. There is more fight scenes in this book then the last books, it is written so well that it feels like you are listening to a commenter. You can picture the scenes in your mind. Jennifer L Armentrout is a fantastic author. The way she writes, her story lines and they she has everything come together. What I like about this book is that although there is danger, a love triangle, friends drama, death and fighting scenes. Because this is a YA book and there is swearing words, there is a love scene which is written very very well. This book really has it all. I feel for Layla in this book because she has so much thrown at her and she is only seventeen nearly eighteen. She finds it hard to trust and the only consistent she has is Roth and Zayne. People who she has known her whole life turn against her. In this story we find out more about Layla and her mother, her connection to her mother and the Lillin and the sacrifice that Layla and Roth have to make in order to save mankind. Even a visit to Hell is in this book. Fantastic end to this series, it’s one of my favorite series of Jennifer L Armentrout.
YES YES YES!!! OHhhh I Love Jennifer L. Armentrout and she does it again. But when does she not? Loved this book so much, I think i am gonna go re-read it again right now!! I had this book pre-ordered for so long I had been counting down the days and Finally it's here and I've read it. I couldn't put this book down. I love Layla, i am not usually a fan of triangles but I enjoyed this one and Roth was is and always will be my fave, He is up there with Damon Black. i love his arrogance, sexiness and cockiness. I will not ruin this and tell you all who Layla chooses or if she chooses either you have to read and find out! All I will say is another fantastic amazing series by Jennifer and if you have not read this yet? What are you waiting for!! read it you will not be disappointed!!
What a fantastic end to a series. I was a little worried as in the past I've read book series where the end has been a huge let down - no such problem here, this author really knows how to close it out and it wasn't just a case of tying up the loose ends there was still a huge story line that moved along at a fast pace and plenty of twists and turns and surprises. I enjoyed this so much that it was hard to start another book when I'd finished but I've now moved on to her Lux series which is also totally gripping. Very talented author. I would also add that I'm a mature lady, not a "young" adult, These books are for all ages.
Roth and Lyla are my perfect couple - in that they have their ups and downs but they are so devoted to each other. This is one of my favourite series from JLA. The idea is so original and the tale is brilliantly written. There are so anxious moments, lots of laughter and some steamy parts - all in all a wonderful series.
