Every Last Breath cover

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 still feel towards this book what I felt for the other two books: Mostly likable, sometimes enjoyable, never boring. It's becoming somehow disappointing because having the same reaction a whole series means no monumental development had happened. It is still the typical Armentrout book, and the few developments that did happen still wasn't enough to make my heart pound.

I have the same opinion for the characters (see my reviews on the previous books), and thank the big guy up there that Layla has come to her senses and stopped being dense and ridiculous. She’s still too girly, but less whiny and less childish here. I don’t like the clichéness (that’s a word for me) of this book, though. Sure, the MC is the center of it all, but getting all the glory in the end? Eh. That doesn’t really do it for me. Where is the justice for the other characters?

Roth lived up to his character. It’s refreshing to see that he is exactly what he says he is. I think that’s why he’s very loveable; he knows who exactly he is, and it doesn’t matter if he’s bad or good whatever.

Anyway, if I have a favorite book in the series, this would be it. The suspense is okay, the mystery is satisfying, the revelations are surprising, and the action is kickass amazing. Armentrout may write irritating female characters, but she sure knows how to write an entertaining action scene. I guess this is why I keep reading her books despite the similarities in every one. It’s always entertaining.
