Favorite Quote: "People with the purest souls are capable of the greatest evils. No one is perfect, no matter what they are or what side they fight for."
 
"One kiss could be the last.

Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she's anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses.

Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she's crushed on since forever.

Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she's not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn't an issue, considering Roth has no soul.

But when Layla discovers she's the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne…it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world."
So I have to admit, I was a little afraid of the gargoyle element of this book. I mean come on gargoyles? How is that going to work and not seem lame? I HAVE SINED BECASUE I DOUBTED THE GREAT JLA!! I mean how on earth did I think this woman couldn't pull anything off? She is fantastic and I LOVED this book so much. It was beyond intense, heartbreaking, sexy, (oh man was it sexy) funny, romantic, I mean I could go on and on. Name a feel, this book will make you feel it. I finished this book in one night. That says a lot because I am a slow reader. I couldn't put it down. If you haven't read this book then you need to call in work sick and go get this book and read and don't put it down till you finish!
You have characters that you will love, hate, and be confused about. I love how diverse the characters are and how complex each one of them turn out to be. No one is who they claim to be, and how do you tell the good guys from the bad? I can't get over how complex and refreshing this book is. How bad would it be if I promised my first born to be able to get the entire series right now? Any takers, cause I'll do it! I want to know how you feel about his book, are you as insanely obsessed as I am? Are you on the Wardens or demons side, or is there even a side? Maybe they are more closely linked then you think. Leave me comments letting me know what you thought or if you plan on picking this book up =)
