Series: The Stone Legacy Series Book 4
Author: Theresa DaLayne
Genre: MATURE YA Paranormal Romance
Jayden’s heart may have stopped beating for good when he was rescued from the underworld, but it can still break…
After an ancient Mayan ceremony goes horribly wrong, Jayden is left to face reality—the girl he once loved is pledged to another. At his breaking point, he steals a cab to leave behind the group of enchanted descendants, this time for good.
When Hawa—a beautiful but lethal acquaintance—decides to call shotgun, his only choice is to take her along for the ride.
He’d be glad to have the company…if it were anyone but her. He only knows her by occasionally sharing a hallway in Renato’s huge estate in Belize. It’s clear she has a perma-chip in her shoulder, and they have absolutely nothing in common. So he thinks…
With no cash and nowhere to stay, Hawa leads him into the heart of Guatemala City to an abandoned hotel of orphaned kids. As more of her tainted past is revealed, an unwelcome memory reappears in flesh and blood, threatening to break her wild spirit.
A mysterious orphan is the only one standing between him and the new queen of hell…
Modem, a spunky twelve-year-old girl with a knack for computers, seems to be keeping her eye on Jay. When his abilities go rogue and pull him back to the underworld, Modem shows she’s more than meets the eye. And as everything spirals out of control, Contessa proves no realm is out of reach…
I was given this book for a review free of persuasion from the author or anyone else affiliated with the book
Anarchy by Theresa DaLayne is the fourth book in The Stone Legacy Series. When Jayden loses the one he thought he would love forever, he flees from everyone he knows, or so he thinks. When Hawa gets into the car with him before he can leave he thinks she just don't get the love he had for his girl nor does she gets him. But when Contessa starts showing him images he thought had stopped due to his death, Hawa is there to help him. As the adventure continues, he learns more about her and deeper his feelings for her go. When they meet Modem, a sweet little pickpocket Jayden never thought she could be the one to save him from Contessa, the witch hell bent on power and destroying him and his friends. Will Jayden ever be able to forgive and forget the girl who had his heart since they were children? Will Hawa's secrets come back to destroy them when they think they are finally safe? How can a child save an adult and keep the witch at bay?
This book in the series branched out from the first books in the series. Did it make it worse then the other books? No. While the author left out the lives of most of the main characters it focused more on the individual characters to give a better understanding into what made Jayden and Hawa become who they were before their adventure started. It stayed with the plot of the series while paying special attention to only two characters. It was different but with the twists I have come to expect from this author. I would have preferred more out of Contessa but, while the other books were major fighting demons and saving the world, this book was about saving the kids that grow up in the wrong world and loving them all the same. I feel that in every series there needs to be a down book. Where the characters take a break in the action to get to know them better, to make a better series. I think this author perfected the down book to hook everything together and I can't wait to read the next. I am hooked on this series
A long-time enthusiast of things that go bump in the night, Theresa began her writing career as a journalism intern—possibly the least creative writing field out there. After her first semester at a local newspaper, she washed her hands of press releases and feature articles to delve into the whimsical world of fiction. Since then, Theresa has been married, had three terrific kids, moved to central Ohio, and has been repeatedly guilt-tripped into adopting a menagerie of animals that are now members of the family. But don’t be fooled by her domesticated appearance. Her greatest love is travel. Having traveled to over a dozen countries—not to mention an extended seven-year stay in Kodiak, Alaska—she is anything but settled down. Wherever life brings her, Theresa will continue to weave tales of adventure and love with the hope her stories will bring joy and inspiration to her readers.
