Normal people don’t believe their nightmares stalk them. They don’t fall in love with boys who don’t exist, either.
Seventeen-year-old Layla Labelle, though, is far from normal. Her delusions walk the earth. Her hallucinations hunt her, and her skin heats to a burn every time her anger flares. Or is that all in her head?
Layla doesn’t know what to believe any more because if none of that’s true, Max MacLarnon must be an illusion, and her heart must still be broken. No matter how much she wants to believe Max is real, doing so would mean everything else is, too. How, then, is that possible?
The answers lie in an age-old legend the supernatural aren’t prepared to reveal, and with a curse that could tear Layla and Max apart forever—if it doesn’t kill them both first.
Learning the truth will mean fighting an arsenal of demons, and being with Max will put Layla on a path toward her own destruction. Just how far will Layla go to protect the one she loves? The answer may never be far enough… away.
Firstly I would like to thank the lovely author and NetGalley for kindly providing me with a copy of Tied to read and review.
“From the ashes of old,
They shall rise.
The last of the Ancients,
Foe and Ally.
The Legend lies in wait,
And bides its time.
Until at last the day comes,
For the children born of fire.”
We meet the lovely Layla, unfortunately for her she feels like she is losing her mind….She can’t seem to make out whether her dreams of unearthly creatures and the most handsome boy she’s met are either Dreams, Nightmares or memories from a previous life.
“I missed Max more than I’d ever missed anyone in my life. For years, I’d tried to will him to return. He never did. Max didn’t exist. Somehow, I’d created an imaginary life, and my heart ached for it.”
Being plagued by nightmares and boys I think I would be going round the bend too.
Unfortunately though things are being kept from Layla.
Lies and betrayal.
How will she feel once she learns the truth?
Once Layla starts learning the truth about who she is and what her life is destined for she soon realizes that she is not the crazy person she once thought and that she will do anything to protect the ones that she loves.
There’s so much amazing creativity that has gone into the Fire Born world; McMann combines and twist legends and the paranormal to come up with the perfect urban fantasy setting
Male or Female, I would recommend this book to anyone. It’s a fun read that will keep you wondering from the beginning and leave you wanting more by the end.
