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…


Oh. My. Goodness. Gracious. Does Jennifer L. Armentrout know how to write an epic conclusion! This was definitely not the ending I saw coming, but I was more than ecstatic with Layla’s choices, especially the guy she picked. Two words: Swoon-Worthy! I don’t want to spoil anything for those of you who haven’t read the book yet, but I truly think almost all of the Dark Elements fans will be happy. I know I honestly couldn’t be happier right now. I loved reading “Every Last Breath” and couldn’t be more thrilled with the outcome. There were many ups and downs throughout, and moments where I thought I just might die, but thank God that wasn’t the case. ;) I really enjoyed the book, and although I hardly ever give any of Ms. Armentrout’s books less than a five star rating, there were some parts in the book that felt rushed and I would have wanted to change. I know that’s just my personal opinion, and I’m sure not every one would feel the same way, but there were a few minor things that were kind of left up in the air. Not anything real significant, but it did certainly make me wonder. Even though the book might not have ended in the exact way I would have wanted it to, the beauty of fiction is that you can make up you’re own ending. And that was precisely what I did. I am so terribly sad that this beyond phenomenal young adult paranormal romance series is finished, but I will forever remember it. I loved The Dark Elements series with all of my heart, and I honestly can’t thank Jennifer L. Armentrout enough for creating the amazing storyline and characters that she did. You rule, Jen!
