Synopsis via goodreads
Layla just wants to fit in at school and go on a date with Zayne, whom she’s crushed on since forever. Trouble is, Zayne treats Layla like a sister—and Layla is a half demon, half gargoyle with abilities no one else possesses. And even though Zayne is a Warden, part of the race of gargoyles tasked with keeping humanity safe, Layla’s kiss will kill anything with a soul—including him.
Then she meets Roth—a demon who claims to know her secrets. Though Layla knows she should stay away, it’s tough when that whole no-kissing thing isn’t an issue. Trusting Roth could ruin her chances with Zayne, but as Layla discovers she’s the reason for a violent demon uprising, kissing the enemy suddenly pales in comparison to the looming end of the world.
WOWOWOWOW okay I KNOW IM LATE TO THIS GAME but this was amazing.
I mean the story line CHECK, the badass female CHECK, the romance CHECK, and the audio CHECK. I am not usually a fan of a love triangle but this one made sense. It felt natural and in my opinion, there is only one person who is clearly going to come out on top. I love our badass hero chick. She has her insecure moments but I really feel like she takes a stand for herself.
ROTH oh my lanta. He is just EVERYTHING.
Audio wise it was great. Saskia Maarleveld is always great. She delivers emotion so well. She has this slight natural rasp to some of her words that I love. I think she was the perfect person to voice this character.
