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 that 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.

After Stone Cold Touch, I had concerns about how well this trilogy would wrap up. Thankfully the love triangle that hurt Stone Cold Touch so much was resolved in the very early parts of Every Last Breath, making it easily my favorite book of the trilogy. I won’t tell you who she chose, but she chose well IMO ๐Ÿ™‚

What Worked:

  • The romance! It has been an up and down point for me in the trilogy, but in Every Last Breath it was only awesome. I loved every bit of the relationship and am even happy with how I think things will go for the guy she didn’t choose.
  • The characters and especially the familiars! We get to see so much more of Bambi than every before and boy was it fun. Although there’s a bit of heartbreak on that path too…
  • Speaking of the heartbreak – I’m sorry but I’m one of those readers that likes a little heartbreak. I never cried, so it didn’t get too bad – but there were some definite moments were softer souls than I may shed some tears.
  • Hell! We go to hell and meet Grim and a certain someone. That’s all I’ll say about that greatness.
  • Revelations! You know they had to happen since it’s book 3 of the trilogy but there’s was no guarantee they would be fun and shocking. They were and I enjoyed every moment.
  • The narration still deserves a shout out – I’ve said it for all three reviews, but I’ll say it again. Saskia Maarleveld is going on my list. She’s good and I’m glad I listened to this series.

What Didn’t Work:

  • I’ve got nothing ๐Ÿ™‚

And that’s why I’m giving Every Last Breath five stars. A great trilogy that any fan of Paranormal Romance and YA should try!

      Me too! I’ve had bad luck with a lot of YA trilogies so it was a nice surprise that my favorite was the last one ๐Ÿ™‚

      I agree, they can be ridiculously overused! I think she crafts good characters and I enjoyed the world. IMO the trilogy would have been just fine, better actually, without the love triangle – it was an unnecessary addition.
