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…

I have no words. This is the third and last book in the Dark Elements series and it’s mind blowing.

The time has come for Layla to choose who she wants to be with. Thankfully for Roth and Zayne (and of course us) Layla gets to choose early on. I was so glad she chose the one she did. I was actually surprised that the love triangle was resolved this early in the book but it did work great since we got to see more of the couple.

The danger is real and the stakes are higher than ever. The Lilin is running around town and now that the secret is out, the Lilin has nowhere to go and hide. Layla realizes that it’s her responsibility to act. She must find the Lilin and kill it before the Alphas decide to take matters into their hands.

Every last breath was AMAZING! It started exactly where Stone Cold Touch left off, where the identity of the Lilin is revealed. In this book the action takes off. From the first page till the end the book was nonstop action, suspense, surprises, humor and overall emotional.

As every J.L.A. book, Every Last Breath has a huge, major plot twist that broke my heart. I can’t believe that Layla had to make such a decision. It was really heartbreaking but it was also necessary. I loved that about this book. Everything happened for a reason.

What I didn’t really expect was the romance aspect but I really loved it. Before reading the book I thought we would get nonstop action, which we do and that the love triangle would be resolved just before the end. Surprisingly, the love triangle was resolved almost from the very beginning. So we got to see more of Layla and her chosen one. Squee!!!

Every last breath was the perfect balanced ending to the Dark Elements series. We got to see almost every paranormal creature there is from gargoyles to angels and witches. Despite the choice Layla makes we get to see both Roth and Zayne and of course their familiars. I loved them so much.

I can’t wait to read J.L.A. new book, The Problem with Forever.

Highly recommended!

  1. I agree! I loved this book and thought it was a wonderful conclusion. I was very happy with her choice too and I loved seeing those two in action. Great review!
