Find Max.
That’s all Layla cares about. Not healing from the Fomore attack. Not finding answers to how she survived a fall that nearly killed her. Nothing will stop her. She will find him. She’ll even pair up with an overbearing Fallen Angel who’s hell bent on making everything harder than it needs to be if she has to.
Protect Layla.
For Max, nothing else matters. Not the bruises covering his body. Not the pain radiating from his broken bones. Not even his hands tied behind his back. He will find a way to save Layla, and the Fomore will pay if they’ve hurt her.
Every. Single. One of them.
In the second instalment of The Fire Born trilogy, a new breed of villain looms—one Layla and Max will never suspect, and this killer has nothing to lose. Better yet, with Max and Layla’s deaths, victory is in the grip of the enemy.
Will Max and Layla find each other in time, or is it already too late for them both?


I had been holding my breath on this particular series because I was soo eager to find out what happened next as book one ended on a serious cliff hanger. Book 2 pretty much picks up where book one ends and the story just gets that much better. Layla wakes up, she can bear move or stand but all she is thinking about is Max! Where is Max? Max is gone, taken by the Formorians.

As Layla starts to get better all she can think about is saving max, rescuing him. With the help of Justice they try to find the shadowlands, which will lead them the fomorians. When Max wakes up all he can think about is Layla and how he has to save Layla. He finally comes face to face with his father Elethan , king of Fomor who gives Max and offer that seems like he cannot refuse it. Elethan promises to stop hunting Layla and the world of light if he chooses to stay in the shadowlands. Will Max choose to save Layla’s life by loosing his own to the shadowlands?

I enjoyed this book soo much that I just couldn’t put it down once I started it and I was sad once again how it ended but glad it wasn’t such a cliff hanger like book one. I found Layla really frustrating, her trust issues seriously run super deep and I wanted to just shake her senseless at some moments. There is soo much information in the story that I found some of it confusing. I just might need to read the book again to get my head around it. The legend and the snippets of information did not help me understand some of the riddles or visions that were happening in the book. But there is a lot of action in this book that is just none stop. I guess in book three a lot of these riddles will be come crystal clear as it appears the best is yet to come in this series.

If you haven’t read this series I suggest to pick it up and start, you honestly will not be disappointed.
