Book DescriptionOne kiss could be the last.
Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she's anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses.
Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she's crushed on since forever.
Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she's not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn't an issue, considering Roth has no soul.
But when Layla discovers she's the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne… it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.
Layla is half demon/gargoyle, she has never fit in completely with the Wardens. They've taught her to hate the demon half of herself and she does.
Then enter Roth, the Crown Prince of Hell. He shows her that not all demons are what she thought. He's so cunning and wonderful (not to mention sexy).
The plot is pretty normal for the standard Young Adult genre but there were two plot twists that I didn't see coming. Elijah was Layla's father and she finally got to turn into a gargoyle.
Layla is a pretty strong heroine better than some of the others I've read about (Bella from Twilight). I can't wait for the sequel to this book.
As for which guy I hope she gets with... Team Roth all the way! I also love his snake tattoo Bambi. She is awesome!
Everyone should read this book! It's just full of action and totally cool. I'm so glad I picked it up. There are quite a few interesting characters and one hell of a cliffhanger to make you want to read the squeal.
