All of Kristen Callihan's books that I have read have been good, so I was expecting another great read from her. That is exactly what I got! What I loved most about this book was the story of Sin and Layla's journey together, from childhood to adults, brought together after years of forced separation. It was a beautiful love story.
Layla has come back to London after years spent abroad as a singer, because she has lost her singing voice. Sin has been summoned to London to protect her. Neither have seen each other since they were teenagers. Their feelings come back in full force, but Sin's past and Layla's future threaten to keep them separated. Layla isn't human and neither is Sin, and they will have to fight for each other as they settle into their new supernatural roles.
Layla and Sin love each other, and you can see that that throughout the book. It was in the way Sin spoke to Layla and the way Layla knew Sin so well. When they finally gave in to that love, it was beautiful. Sin's past made him wary of intimacy with anyone, but he allowed Layla to soothe his worries and accept him fully for what he is and for what his past made him do. Both characters were wonderfully developed, in a way that makes me want to see a sequel about them. That's rare, because I usually don't care too much once they get their Happily Ever After.
It was also nice to see previous characters in this book. One of my favorite couples from her previous books, Miranda and Archer, get another Happily Ever After, and it was nice to see. I liked watching their relationship again, since it has been a while since I read their book. You'll love it! Definitely read Firelight first to fully appreciate it.
Fantastic book, endearing set of characters, and what feels like a lovely conclusion to a series! If there are more books, I am excited to see them. If this is it, it was satisfying enough that I leave the series feeling content. Great job by Kristen Callihan, as always!
