Layla grew as a character steadily throughout the book, and I can’t wait to see how much more she grows throughout this series. She began very timid, but still a bit sassy and by the end of the book she was able to keep up with the equally sassy and hilarious Roth. And speaking of Roth, he just made my heart flutter. I know he was modelled a bit after Daemon from her Lux series, and it was such a fantastic move on her part. Armentrout writes these guys so perfectly that it’s impossible not to get swept up in them. While I was rooting for Roth, I was also really rooting for Zayne. I’m going to struggle with this one but Armentrout made both leading males so likeable. I loved how caring Zayne was without being over bearing. And he was equally as funny, if in a subdued way.
Armentrout also did a really good job of giving the reader a fresh take on, not necessarily a well told story, but certainly well told characters. The demons mentioned throughout are ones we’ve read about lots in YA paranormal books, but Armentrout did it justice and didn’t leave me bored and thinking I already knew about them kind of thing. If that made any sense at all.
Overall, I am still solidly a huge JLA fan and can’t wait to read the second instalment, which thankfully we don’t have to wait long for 🙂
