Let me start by saying that when I started this book I was just going to read one chapter to see what it would be like so I could budget it into my schedule... what happened in reality? I consumed it in one sitting, staying up all night. Do I regret it? Oh, heck no! I want to know what happens next! Luckily, I get to review book 2 as soon as it's out! YEAH!
I really enjoyed the characters in this book. I mean, I am a big character person. And Taylor does a fabulous job of crafting characters that are not only realistic (well, when they aren't being immortal and stuff), but also memorable!
Ryder is the kind of character that a lot of people can relate to. She has so much insecurities and there's the mean girl. Ugh, I hate mean girls, but they are a complete part of the high school hierarchy! I love how she keeps a journal to keep track of the weird crap happening to her! Man, I would be her friend! But when I was in high school, our group was the outcasts from all the others! So she'd fit right in.
Oh, let me not forget the boys! I personally liked Ari more than Ollie. I felt like he had more depth, but maybe that was done intentionally. I don't know, I'm not Taylor.
I really want Ryder to figure things out and not be in the dark so much! But I know everything is given to the reader when it's necessary!
The story is great and I highly recommend it for those that enjoy stories that blend mythology with awesome tales!

What Readers Have to Say...
"An absolutely heart wrenching read that shows us that at times no matter how much we hope, darkness will find its way to win. "
-Blogger's From Down Under for A Reliant Love
"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
