Nothing in Layla and Max’s world will ever be the same.
Since Max left, and joined his father in the Shadow Realm, everything in Layla’s life has changed. The Demon Gods threaten to destroy the Otherworld, and an inconceivable darkness has awakened—a darkness that wants control of Layla’s will. It also wants Max … dead. Not only must Layla face the true fire simmering inside her, but fight the one she loves most.
And this time, with her friends and family left behind, she’s completely on her own.
Leaving Layla nearly destroyed Max, but it was his only choice. Now, he must play the part—stay in control of his end goal, his actions, and the poison coursing through his veins, clouding his thoughts, and turning him into what he fears most, a Demon God. But even with his Oghams fighting the toxins, his control is slipping. Living in the Fomore castle with his Vampyre Fae ex-girlfriend isn’t making it any easier to stay sane, and waiting to face off against Layla is taking its toll.
In the final installment of the Fire Born Novels trilogy, the legendary Battle will be fought, and Layla and Max stand to lose everything. How far will they go to save each other and protect the ones they love? Even they don’t know the answer.
No one can win.
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.
So Layla and Max’s story ends. . . *Sniff*
What a ride this book was.
It takes hold of your heart and take you through several emotions that I didn’t know a book could hold the power to give.
This book is an amazing conclusion to a series that has, quiet honestly, gotten better with every instalment throughout
Layla had to walk a hard road, to find out her true self, who she truly is. Justice is Layla’s constant companion and they have formed a true friendship. We also find out about how Sam and Justice were born to serve and protect the Fire Born.
We learn more about the angels, about Layla and Max’s past life, and their ties. Layla and Max’s chemistry was speechless and I loved how they struggled to be together again.
The Morrigan’s real agenda comes out and the true loyalties of many come to the surface. By no means is it easy going for anyone, but they all seem to be determined to get the outcome they want.
We get answers to all our questions too!
“Upon the twenty-ninth day of the seventh month,
the black moon shall rise, and the ashes must fall, as the White Raven flies.
One day must pass, for the last to descend,
merging the lost, unto which the reign will approach it’s end.
On the thirty-first day, as Lilith comes,
under the Crone’s Waning Moon, undo what has been done.”
The Author did not disappoint her readers.
Although at times I thought this was it, the end left you breathless and at a lost of words.
SO as an overall, it was an entirely satisfying end to this series, if you’ve followed the first two books and was thinking to forgo the third, i’ll recommend to read it.
