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
In the final installment to the Fireborn series Layla and Max must fight for what they believe in, while trying to make it back to one another. As Layla is discovering more and more about herself she becomes a woman who is fit to someday be Queen. Max is fighting to play his part while preparing to battle Layla.
This final installment was a strong ending. I absolutely loved reading from Max's point of view. I for some reason tend to love books that switch between point of views. Maybe it's because I feel that one character sometimes becomes tedious depending on the story and character. But mixing it up between two different POVs makes it a lot more entertaining.
It was interesting to see Layla trying to consolidate between Layla and Teine, and how that unfolded had me wanting to read more. I honestly love this series for the folklore. I've said it in my previous reviews for these books but for me that is the strong suite. I love, love, love the back story that comes along with the Ancients and why Max and Layla have their powers and their Oghams. I feel like I wouldn't need a story with as much action and adventure if it were just the folklore that is within this series.
