Audiobook Review: Every Last Breath (The Dark Elements, #3). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Every Last Breath by Jennifer L. Armentrout

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Some loves will last ’til your dying breath

Every choice has consequences—but seventeen-year-old Layla faces tougher choices than most. Light or darkness. Wickedly sexy demon prince Roth, or Zayne, the gorgeous, protective Warden she never thought could be hers. Hardest of all, Layla has to decide which side of herself to trust.

* * * * *

Layla has a new problem, too. A Lilin—the deadliest of demons—has been unleashed, wreaking havoc on those around her…including her best friend. To keep Sam from a fate much, much worse than death, Layla must strike a deal with the enemy while saving her city—and her race—from destruction.

* * * * *

Torn between two worlds and two different boys, Layla has no certainties, least of all survival, especially when an old bargain comes back to haunt them all. But sometimes, when secrets are everywhere and the truth seems unknowable, you have to listen to your heart, pick a side—and then fight like hell…

The heroine: Layla – she is changing and her powers are changing as well. She thought she was half gargoyle and half demon but finds that she is more different then she ever thought possible. She also knows she has to make a decision that will hurt one of the men she loves.

The Hero(s): Zayne – he is a gargoyle and grew up with Layla and was the one person who always believed in her. He always stood by her and he has shown her how much he loves her.
Roth – the crown prince of Hell. He is an upper level demon and he has worked with Layla in fighting to make sure the apocalypse doesn’t happen. He has saved her on more than one occasion.

The Story: Layla gets in to more than one bad situation, including one with the gargoyle wardens she grew up with. She realizes that she has to do what her heart wants even though it will hurt someone she loves. Though once that is done, it isn’t like she can live happily ever after. A Lillan has been born of her and her mother’s blood and her and her cohorts have to stop it before it wreaks havoc on earth.

Layla goes to Hell and back for her friends and the romance in this book is as sweet and steamy as it was in the last book. It was a young adult book, so no over the top intimate scenes, but I really enjoyed both the romance and the exiting storylines.

Like the two previous books, the narration in this one was good. It was a great series to listen to via audiobook. However, I will take one point away for only having one narrator. I definitely like books with dual or even more narrators. The story was terrific and I loved all the references to Supernatural!

“Unless it had been Castiel, because I was totally cool with him rising me up from perdition if that was what happened.”
