“Demons love a good game of Dodge Ball!”
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎🌍
Character development: 😳🤬😏🤓🥰
The heroine: Layla – she is half gargoyle, half demon in a world where gargoyles have are known to humans. She doesn’t know where she came from but she has lived with gargoyles since she was very young. She has the ability to see souls and to mark demons by touching them. She has had a crush on her best friend Zayne who is a Warden and seems to have feelings for her as well. Though they both know that nothing can ever come of it. Her kiss is deadly to anyone with a soul.
The Hero(s): Zayne – a gargoyle and son of the head warden. The wardens are gargoyles that are the guardians of humanity. They hunt and kill demons. Wardens have a pure soul while demons have no soul.
Roth – an upper level demon, he is tall, inked and cocky. He also seems to know more about Layla’s background than she does. He can’t be marked by Layla like lower level demons and always seems to be rescuing her from bad situations. He has a tattoo of a snake that comes alive and is called Bambi.
The Story: Layla is the only one of her kind living in a world where she works as a warden but is not liked or trusted by the other wardens, except Zayne, but even he doesn’t completely trust her. She is still in high school and the humans she attends school with think she is a human but treat her differently because she lives with the gargoyles.
All the above is the setting for a big story. Add in a bunch of demons and zombies that are out to get Layla and might just out the rest of the supernatural world to humans, and the story just gets better from there.
Roth is a bad boy who is actually from Hell and he shows Layla that everything isn’t as black and white as the wardens had led her to believe. The themes of Heaven and Hell, wardens and demons, were fascinating and I even liked the triangle which reminded me a lot of Bella, Edward and Jacob. I was definitely team Roth on this one.
