A stunning conclusion to the Fog City series from Layla

ANEA New Empire by Layla Reyne

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I honestly didn’t think Layla would go there but she did and while this will be a no spoilers review, let’s just say hold onto your hats because the action is all-encompassing.

I was sold by two minutes into reading this book when a certain kick-ass take no prisoners person arrived on page, followed shortly by another quick guest appearance from another of my fave Layla characters.

This book was going to be all ends up awesome and it delivered in spades. From the first moments when Hawes is dealing with what went down at the end of book two, through to the four months later epilogue at the end, this is all I wanted it to be.

Hawes and Chris are better than ever, finally realising they’ve met the one other person they can truly rely on. There’s schemings, a jailbreak that wouldn’t be out of place on screen in a big Ocean’s Eleven style heist movie, there’s all the usual suspects turning up with one bringing a secret I would never have guessed in a million years.

And, at the heart of it, are the three Madigans. Hawes, Holt and Helena, proving that family comes first in everything.

I absolutely LOVED this book and I love how it really felt like three episodes in a long-running action-adventure with cliffhangers and to be continued plot lines dropping all over.

Now bring on the spin-offs and let’s get Holt and Kane sorted out please Layla (and I’d love to see Helena and Celia explore that interesting family dynamic too!)

(The over-excited gushing and total fangirling over a certain kick-ass character is all my own work.)
